... I feel it's good for his career to be superstar one year before going to NHL.
FEL had much better level of talent and competition back when Selšnne and S. Koivu were playing there.
Also, I have completely different opinion on him being a "superstar" in FEL, what good is that going to do? Nothing good can be really gained from that, being superstar in FEL only has cons, all it does is just add up the pressure for him to succeed right away in NHL, and maybe even make the player feel cocky. If he goes there next fall there really isn't that much pressure, since there will not have been much time to hype him up (too much).
