I'll reswerve judgement, but if after one year in the AHL and schiefele's not on the roster, i'll be wringing my hands.
Scheifele was already a late bloomer to begin with.
You have to remember that he only had one year in the OHL under his belt when he was drafted in the first place. Which was why it was so remarkable that he performed the way he did in training camp. No one expected that; he was expected to be somewhat of a project.
For comparison Couturier already had 3 years of junior in the Q and he went to the NHL directly after the draft. This is only Scheifele's 3rd year of OHL.
