As of right now I expect the Q and also think that's for the best. However, if you consider that he'd be a great fit at a need if he really were ready, that only helps his chances. If he's somehow able to make big improvements to his physique with his workouts in Buffalo then that's going to increase his chances and his readiness substantially. But I would put money on him going to the Q and being completely dominant. Then he can step in next season with Armia for the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Best prospect? Best offensive player? IMO he is our best prospect ahead of Armia, but it's extremely close. Both have really high ceilings and Armia is further along in his development, but I feel a playmaking #1 center (who's also a damn good goalscorer) always gets the edge.
