No he is not ready. Wikstrand impressed at the World Juniors, but he'll have to improve in a number of areas to challenge for a spot, even with an incredibly weak depth chart.

I'd say he should spend a year at the SEL level next season, then a year or two in Binghamton, perhaps more or less depending on his play. He is by no means a lock to be an NHL defenseman, so rushing him isn't a move that makes a lot of sense.
