<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>KingofRnR</b></div><div>Thanks for the comment and for taking the time to source &amp; share the highlights!

Don't get me wrong, I know Guhle is an Excellent Player. I live in Edmonton and have seen him Play Live a few times and think he will be a Great NHL Player, but with only 2 Pre-Season games under his belt (one good and one really nothing special), I'm not satisfied he's ready for the Speed and Skill of a regular season NHL game. He may be gifted with size already, but I wouldn't say he's necessarily faster than Kylington and although you didn't say he did, without the experience, he's not a better decision maker than Kylington

The risk is him being eaten alive out there and losing confidence in his game. Just my opinion of course, but also pretty standard for players to play in the AHL first to learn their Teams system and continue to develop towards being NHL Ready. I have the same opinion of OTT's Jake Sanderson. It's just very rare a player can jump from Junior to the NHL, especially as a D-Man</div></div>

You don't have to sell me on Kylington, I like him as a player. He kind of reminds me of a younger Brett Kulak. After further consideration I think this deal would work but only as an insurance policy for Harris and Barron on the right side. I am not worried about Guhle, he will be fine and if he struggles a bit can be sheltered some on the 3rd pairing. Getting Kylington could allow us to run Harris on his strong side. We wouldn't have a true top pair this year but Matheson-Savard, Guhle-Kylington, Harris-Wideman would make 3 decent pairings.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>KingofRnR</b></div><div>As I was trying to elude too, skipping &amp; rushing a players development is not recommended. Allowing them more time to grow &amp; fill out (both physically &amp; mentally) = gain strength &amp; confidence and then easing them in to the NHL is usually the way to go. There are exceptions, like Top-5 Draft Picks, otherwise and especially with Defensemen, it takes time for Prospects to be ready for Full-Time NHL action

<strong>There's a HUGE difference between playing against Boys in Junior to playing with Much Bigger, Faster and Stronger Men in the NHL</strong></div></div>

Tell that to the guys Guhle and Xhekaj have been laying out over the last week or two! Guhle is NHL ready. He is already bigger and faster than Kylington, his mental strength is there as well as he makes better decisions both with and without the puck than both Harris and Barron who have NHL experience as well. If you don't think he is NHL ready check out the highlights from the game last night vs the Jets. He scored the opening goal and the Jets had Samberg, Schmitt, Appleton and Gustafsson on and Hinola was coming back into the play from the box. Those aren't exactly jr players there. Sure it is the preseason and that isn't going to be the Jets normal PK but they are all NHL players (with the exception of Hinola).

Also take a look at who he pins along the boards at the 3:47 mark of the following video. The end result is still a goal off a deflection for the Jets but he had his man and the breakdown came from a lack of support from the forwards in the board battle. The Jets forward (without the puck) comes in and digs the puck out but Guhle still does his job pinning Dubois along the borads.
