@Maverick41, why do you think this:
I really hope that he'll get an entry-level contract with a NHL team, even when he has to play in the AHL for an extended period of time. Everything else (like going back to Germany) would be a pure waste of talent imo, don't you think?
P.S.: Once again, thank you very much for this informative thread. I'm checking it daily and after you added some relevant informations about the players at the bottom of your post, this thread is even better.
I think he might get signed. He attended the Maple Leafs rookie camp and apparently impressed. I would think he'll at least get an AHL deal, which will keep him visible to NHL scouts. He could take a similar route to Antoine Roussel of the Dallas Stars.
