Yeh, he will almost certainly reach the 700.

In doing the analysis of draft picks the one thing I really saw was that fans especially, and in some cases GM's, massively overate draft picks. Obviously it is important to have a good farm with potential en masse, but people (like in the Mason deal!) think mid round draft picks are worth more than an actual NHL player a lot of the time.
