He'll have to really wow people to make it in the NHL within the next 3-4 years IMO.
That's what they said about Tyler Myers too and he won ROY as a 19 year old.
There's no reason to put a time table on when the kid will be ready. He will decide when he's ready. We are talking about a 6'7 kid who just turned 18 and moves like he does. No one has any idea how this kid will progress in the next 18 months let along 4 years from now. If the Flyers conceded his offensive game he could play next year. There's probably no organization that pushes their prospects (especially 1st rounders) more than the Flyers.
This time last year everyone said Stolarz needs 4 years of college, 2 years in the AHL, etc. And then he went to London and everyone said he's going to have to play as an overager. Well, he surpassed everyone's projection.
