I'd leave him in Junior another year. The over age guys in Edmonton will be moving on next year and he and Lazar will be top dogs. He won't be nineteen until February, so no AHL for him next season (at least not to start the year). Let him put up North of a point and a half per game in the Dub next season, give USA no choice whatsoever to let him play in the WJC in Sweden next year (he'll only be nineteen, so should be eligible). See if he can lead the Dub in scoring and lead USA to a gold in Sweden. Ulf is basically at the opposite end of the country but it would still be cool.

No rush.
