I can see him and Ellis rotating between the second and third pairing. Just don't think an 18 year old 'defebseman' can handle second pairing right away.

May even benefit Seth to play in juniors again. Or ahl.
He cannot play in the AHL due to bis age. So its either make the Preds or return to juniors.

Poile says he is the most NHL ready player in this years draft.

I'm thinking there's no way he goes back to junior. As to whether he can handle 2nd line duty right out of the gate, time will tell. He may start the season on the third pair and get his feet we're before moving up but I think if poile is that high on him I like his chances.
