Yes but a young prospect need points and confidence to grow up. So that would be a good thing to have him in the SF.
He should already have a lot of confidence from the Futures he played this year, where he has been stellar and routinely defeated players like Gawron, Vesely and Mecir. I don't know whether the SF here really made that big a difference.
When he met a decent player, in Greul, he stood no chance.
