Oshie - when? where? what?

Hello Blues! Looking for some insight on your top prospect.

Is he expected to turn pro after the college season is done or at the start of next season?

Is he going to spend time in the AHL or start with the Blues right away?

If he's a Blue right away, is he going to be given a top 6 role?

Most here are thinking he will turn pro after his Junior year is done.

Will he come up when North Dakota is done in March or April OR will he come up next fall? Your guess is as good as ours. Most thought Erik Johnson would be up last spring...but he waited until this fall.

Whenever TJ does decide to turn pro...I don't see him in the AHL at all. I think he is one of our only prospects that can skip the AHL.

Is he a top 6 forward? Looks that way. Will he start off on the top 2 lines? Based on what Andy Murray loves to do with rookies...I would say 2nd line at best...but wouldn't be shocked to see him on the 3rd line and earn his playing time...like Murray loves doing with the young guys.

Plus we currently have these guys in our top 6...with only Boyes set to be a RFA...so it will be tough for Oshie to crack that to start next fall:

Kariya McDonald Boyes
Perron Tkachuck Stempniak
