Letting him play the whole season in Sweden regardless of the NHL situation will help his development alot as well.

Future top 6 winger with the Canucks with some 30 plus goal seasons in his future as well.
Worth noting that for the past 3 NHL seasons just 24-30 players per year have hit 30 goals. If he puts up a number of 30+ goal season, that will make him a pretty high end goal scorer, assuming the league stays as defensive/low scoring as it has been recently. He also did not hit 30+ goals in either of his OHL seasons.

Don't get me wrong, the kid is skilled, but I'd be pretty surprised if he puts up multiple 30+ goal NHL seasons.
