    Anyone care to speculate about how long Kessel stays in college? Might he come out after he's drafted next year?

    I think he'll only be there a year if he has a standout season.He should be n.h.l ready if that happens.

    I agree, I don't see him staying for more then one year. He is a spectacular skater and whoever is picking 1st overall will want to get him into the lineup right away.

    I honestly think he could play this year if it was possible.He would'nt win the calder or anything crazy like that but i think he could play and have a decent season.

    He should stay in school for at least two years, i think, unless he completely blows everyone away with record setting numbers.

    I had hopes the rangers will land him (we do real good with Americans; Leetch, Beezer, Richter, York, etc), now, with some of the recent signings, it looks like though we might not be a playoff team, we may be competitive, which sucks since some teams are planning on taking the tank-it game plan.

    And what does this have anything to do with Kessel's career path? Nice job getting off-topic knowing full well it could ignite a flame war, mod.

    I don't think he's gonna be at Minnesota for more than 1 year. My only concern is if he'd be physically ready to make the jump this time next year. Absolutely awsome talent but always seemed kind of frail to me. :dunno:

    I guess Ovechkin could dominate on the first line by himself. It'd be tough but possible. Ahhhh, who am I kidding? He could be 6 inches tall and beat God's heavenly choir of angels...

    Vanek stayed two years - Heatley did 2 at Wisconsin, Parise 2 at ND. Sure, Kessel may be better(or not), but it seems like 2's the norm for these guys.

    I think it would be too much of a jump for him. I couldn't see him doing much in the NHL this year - not trying to take a shot at his obvious talent.. he just needs to age and play in a higher level than he has for a year or two before I think he'd be ready.

    Kessel's more Heatley or Kariya than Parise or Vanek.

    I see your point, but didn’t he dominate with Ntdp and their schedule consisted of college teams. So is he really playing at a higher level?

    That's a valid point.. but I guess I just don't see playing on what amounts to an all-star team against a mixed bag of opponents in non-pressure situations as all that is needed for him.

    I think College ( or CHL, had he chosen that route ) is a more closer scenario to what he will experience in the NHL.
