Which is precisely why there are rules surrounding CHL players being called up to the NHL and the rules governing when a junior eligible player can be sent to the AHL. Mason isn't available to his NHL team, except in unusual, unavoidable situations. That isn't the case this time around, in my opinion.

You're absolutely right that Columbus doesn't give a rat's ass about the junior clubs. No NHL team would, outside of relying on the CHL team to help develop their drafted players.
