The AHL might be more beneficial for him though at 20.

With the way the Flyers handle first round picks though, I expect them to give him a real shot at the squad as a 19 yr old. I think that would be a mistake but just an opinion. He has made some great strides this season but has alot to work on. Another QMJHL season and 1-2 AHL seasons and he would be ready I think. But my guess, by the way the Flyers work, he is in the NHL in a year or 2.
I'll guess one more year in the QMJHL, and then an entire season in the AHL. His first year as a pro should be spent entirely in the AHL though. I don't want any of this back forth stuff between the NHL and the AHL. That's how you ruin a kid. Let him spend an entire year in one league, and then re-evaluate at the end of year to see if he's ready to make the jump or not.
