You are technically right without question, but I'm looking at our organizational needs. This season for example, Sarich was brought back for the sole reason to hit and add some much needed physicality to our team. In 2 years time, we'll likely have guys like Baertschi, Gaudreau and Granlund all challenging for regular spots which all skill players not known for toughness. Bouwmeester has never been physical and that's not Brodies game either. Having a player like Seiloff will be a necessity so our players don't get hurt. So while you are right in saying he can't be called a lock quite yet, I would say its extremely probable that he'll make our team in 2-3 seasons given his physical maturity.
