The only important question is whether he'd be better served in the A or NHL and I don't think anyone knows the right answer to that for certain. Personally, as I have said, I'd love to see the Caps hold on to him, play the crap out of him, and have him tear up the AHL. I just don't know how long that will take.
I think that's the concern on these boards, that's not happening so the concern that it never happens creeps in.
