I completely agree.

I don't see a first pairing dman in him but do see a second pairing as his upside. With the little amount I have seen him he has impressed me. Based off draft position we shouldn't even be talking about him lol!

I have no issues with him playing in the KHL. If I was him that would be my choice too. He will be coached well and go up against good competition. Hopefully he gets lots of ice time. That I see as an issue with Stockton.
