This year will be a rollercoaster of number of games played in such a short period of time. That could lead to more injuries, exaustion from the sheer work load he's had thus far etc... Also, given the 2 amnesty buyouts next year, I'd imagine Gomez will be gone which will leave another spot open.

I say don't rush the kid. This year's NHL season will be more of a wash than naything else. Why burn a year of eligability and possibly stunt his development.
He's already done that. What more will he gain for another 4 months of playing against lower competition when he's shown he's too strong for that level?
