I think his development is better served there - he gets to play man sized opposition and practice with the team. Latter part shouldnt be overlooked. With less games per season they practice a lot more in Europe, with strong emphasis on skating and leg strength.
Glen Metropolit of Finnish team Jokerit (the club Leafs played) was quoted saying he feels like being in the army there... he wasnt used to skating drills twice every day.
