Hopefully he doesn't end up in the suite, but I don't think there's much of a chance of him going to the AHL. Besides the obvious of having to clear waivers, he's just too good to be in the AHL. A lot on these boards thought he was a surefire second liner on this year's team, but injuries and the acquisition of JP Dumont spoiled what could have been his breakout year for the Preds.

If he stays healthy, he has the tools to be a very good second liner. I still think he'll end up being a more talented version of Scott Walker. Unfortunately, he'll share the same overall injury problems.
