Agreed.

Because of injuries he was given a higher role in the playoffs and he acquitted himself well putting up 7 goals and 13 points in 13 games. But in the regular season he only scored 9 goals and put up 27 points in 48 games. He very much needs to further develop his offensive game and show he can produce over the course of the long regular season.

Rushing him to the NHL simply because he is currently a big, strong guy would be a huge mistake IMO for his long term development.
