Worst case scenerio, he goes over has a not so great season he gets picked #2 and still signs the same contract(that the league allows with bonuses) as he would if he has a great season in the OHL.

Best case scenerio is he goes over there proves he can play amongst men at a top level, still gets the exact same bonus laiden contract he would if he sucks over there all while evaluating his status to #1

If there was no Entry level contracts then he might risk screwing himself out of more money in the NHL but fact is he will get the 850K + all the bonuses he possibly can get type deal no matter what happens next season.
