I disagree. I don't think he will take that long to crack the NHL. If next season is locked out then I think we'll see him in Calgary in 04-05.

He looked good enough in camp to make the team this year if we were a lower eschelon team. In fact I've heard some rumours that if his junior rights had not been owned by a team with a solid coaching staff that he would have stayed in Calgary.

I just can't see him taking two more years. Both Regehr and Morris stepped in at age 19 and I think this kid has a higher upside than either. I think he has the ability to step in at age 20 (which he'll be for 04-05).
