Right this second, today? That's very doubtful. Earlier this year, people were whining that he had an apparent slow start adjusting to the higher competition of the WHL. He would have likely been eaten alive as an NHLer this season.

He's a fantastic talent, and I'd do just about anything for Dallas to draft him, but it's doubtful he would succeed as a 17/just turned 18 year old in the NHL.

Dallas is in a bad place right now, but we should probably try and be realistic.
