Is he a definite? Of course not, but he's done very well at all levels so far and has a good track record that was worthy enough of a contract. Scouts are very high on him.

He's most likely not going to be the one who brings this franchise to the next level but he'll be a very good if not essential piece if he pans out.
Not to mention Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg.
