At this point where he's shown improvement and a real good development camp, I hope Chia holds on to him or makes sure the return is worth it. But IMHO he shouldn't be looked at like a prospect that may or may not make it, but a guy with a top 6 ceiling who looks more than likely to achieve that.
Spooner is going to be a great NHLER. But he's not ready right now. He's not strong enough physically or mentally. He's not strong on the stick and he needs to work on his defence. Once he does that (I think a year in Prov with an injury call up) is more likely. Once he works on those flaws, he will be a great player. He's got all the skill, but he's not ready just yet. Penciling him on the 2nd line this season is too quick.
