As for our prospects
Brossiot - has great numbers but is playing on a great team and is 2-3 years away
Ortio - wasn't good his last time here may not translate to nhl size ice
Gillies - Has great numbers but is on a defensive team and is 3-5 years away
Ramo - is a top goalie in the khl but there is no guarantee he will come to North America.
So developing Irving hurts none of our other prospects and outside of Ramo none will be ready for the nhl for at least a year most likely 2.
Brossoit will graduate to the AHL next year, so technically Irving could hurt his development.
I'm a big Irving supporter but I don't think he will be back with the organization next year. I think Ramo will probably come across and be the backup to Kipper. Then either Taylor or Brust will sign an AHL deal to mentor Brossoit
