Unless he just absolutely steals the show this season, I'd say it makes more sense to pair him with another goalie (maybe re-sign Theo) in a 1a/1b situation.

I'm a big proponent of having him in the NHL, but unless proven otherwise, I feel it would be best to ease him in and not thrust a 65 game season on him right away.
I haven't gone from anything. That was my position in the thread. And yes, a full year of healthy hockey in North America would be a first for him. I also said he would get some time at the NHL level at some point. Plus he would have a full training camp and preseason.
