Glad to see there are a number of folks giving Scheifele the time he needs to mature and be ready for NHL duty. Too many fans want to rush a player - to their long-term detrement.

As much as a work stopage would likely kill me next fall, the only good news in that would be... it might work out best for Mark. He could then go back to Jr, without anyone questioning whether he should play here/there, play in the World Jrs again as a 19 yr old. It seemed to work quite well for the '03 drafted players like Getzlaf and Carter.

BTW, not that i'm comparing Mark's game to Getzlaf and Carter, but their stats in Jr at the same time in their careers is remarkably similar. Just saying.
