Why is he ready? Brodin was ready, larsson and hedman played a lot. then there is this little thing about comparing him to our present Dmen. He's probably better than 3 or 4 of those dudes right now. I'd rather send Petry and N Schultz to sweden.

Also re development, I view over seas development to be a bit better than college development which is a good step below AHL or NHL in progress development.
