Without a doubt, if he's going to be anything but a bust, he needs to play in the NHL as soon as it resumes. Toronto wouldn't be in a position to do that, so all they'd be doing is trading for a future bust.
21 years old is not old for a prospect. He has had opportunity at the NHL level, and performed well as a rookie, and was sent down because he needed more than 4th line minutes to develop. You have no clue whatsoever if you think a 21 year old developing is too old and a "bust".
