I have always thought that they would start him next season in the NHL. It was said (I believe also by Stauffer) that they asked him to come over for this season, but he wanted to honor his contract in Sweden first.
Nothing wrong with giving him a shot if he earns a spot in camp, but i wouldn't count on him being in the top 4 this season. They can send him down to OKC if he struggles, so there is really no risk here.
