Well, if we look at our D in 3 years time, he will still be about 11th or 12th in depth.
Markov
Komisarek
Gorges
Subban
O'Byrne
Weber
McDonough
Emelin
Fischer
Carle
Valentenko

I dont see him ever making this team. I hope he makes me eat my words,but I dont see it.Maybe a minor league contract with Hamilton or Cincy.

There's no way to know who will be here in 3 years. Will Komisarek re-sign? No one knows yet. Will Emelin come over ever? Impossible to tell. Will the Habs want to bring back Valentenko, time will tell. Plus there's trades, injuries, players regress, etc...

Also it's not about making the NHL, it's about development and taking the next step in his development. So what if he doesn't make the NHL, doesn't mean we won't need to have solid depth guys in hamilton in case of injuries. On top of that, you don't know how much he may or may not improve, so if he shows enough to get a contract, which imo he has, then I don't see any reason not to sign him unless you are up against the 50 contract limit.
