And he's not gonna be that over night, either.

There's no reason to believe he'll break through as a top6 NHL player faster than Z or Pavel did. They came over late, and then took another few years to acclimatize(greatly helped by veterans) until they were about 25.. It's a boring projection but fact is he's still physically underdeveloped and thus will take longer to reach his full upside than your normal prospect. Detroit's gonna take the time needed here and hope it pays off big later.
