Or is that too fast for them to come.
if we somehow end up with ekblad, you leave him in the OHL for another year at least, 2 if you are smart.... nurse you give one more year in the OHL and then at least 1 year in the AHL
dmen take *forever* to become difference makers in the NHL... lots jump to the NHL as 18-20 year olds, but pretty much none of them make an impact at that age
