I may be in the minority here, but I say he should stay in Michigan for another year or two, whether he is NHL ready or not. No one is completely sure of the identity of next year's St. John's team and it wouldn't make sense to give him bottom pairing minutes in the NHL if he is not completely ready.

At Michigan he will have a fairly consistent team all year, play more minutes, play against adults and will be able to further his education. Not much more you could ask for towards the development of a young player. Let him learn the game a bit more and grow into his frame.
