Perhaps we could trade Philip Samuelsson+ for him.
Ferland didn't get sent down from minor-pro to juniors as an overager for nothing. That does not happen to legitimate NHL prospects.

He's got a better chance of becoming a career ECHLer than an NHLer at this point. Do not be fooled by size and junior numbers put up two seasons after being drafted.
