We often see these guys enter the NHL still too immature to handle what they are being asked to do.

Again, this means nothing about Trouba persay. I expect him to be great, but if given the choice I'd rather go the Shattenkirk route than the Trouba route personally.
If all goes according to plan for him, he'll never "have" to go back. He'd basically be set. I'd rather have the chance to play pro hockey than get the college experience.
