Obviously it's not 100% indicative of future failure, but it certainly is not something we should be hoping for/expecting. Every prospect is different, i get that, but we should really be hoping for him to be making his debut next year, with at most one season in the AHL.
I like to think that Scheifele will take the same development path as three tall / rangy forwards from the 2003 draft. Two years in Junior, then mostly the NHL with some exposure in the AHL in the 3rd year after the draft.
(see Corey Perry, Ryan Getzlaf and Jeff Carter).
