3. Could be called up right away if ready.
4. Plays against talent that is one step below NHL level.

Why wouldn't you play him in the AHL smartass? Price was 19 when he won the Calder Cup.

If he's going to stay in Sweden for 2 years then really the only edge he has to draft him goes out the window. I'd rather wait 1 year for one of the Russians to finish Jr.
