He's still young & has much to learn but I love his size, his playmaking ability & his hockey IQ.

There is always the chance that he gets called up again this season but if he doesn't he will work harder over the summer knowing what he has learned up here this time to make that decision even harder next time. I would guess that he will definately be in the top six in Bingo next yr & get some PP time. This yr he spent most of the yr on the 3rd line with Grant & learned to play a more defensive role which is great for his development. He is learning to be more of a two way player which is great.
Pretty much this.

I don't think Stone will get to address what it takes to be a really good NHLer until the off-season.
Once he can train and eat well, and work with the team, he'll get more explosive and then hi future will be very bright.
