Skjei has a McDonagh-like upside, but the odds of him (or any other prospect) reaching those heights are not great because of how good McD is. Keep in mind that McD was almost 22 when he made the NHL, after spending 3 years in college and half a season in the AHL, so even if Skjei is the next McD, we shouldn't expect him to play in the NHL another 3 calendar years. As everyone here knows, defensemen take longer to develop.
