Based on the development path of a lot of the leagues best defensemen, such as Weber, Suter, Pietrangelo, Subban, OEL, Karlsson, etc. it appears the best course of action post draft is 1 year of junior + 1/2 year in the AHL (at minimum). Considering Nurse's age, I am in favour of 2 years in the OHL and at least 30 games in the AHL with a few NHL games sprinkled in.

In the short term, this is not ideal for EDM, however once Nurse is playing on the Oilers, he will have a bigger impact throughout his ELC (e.g. Weber, Pietrangelo, Subban)
