Not "very obviously." 3 seasons in the SEL did wonders for Gistedt didn't it.
The guy can't even play pick-up hockey in northern Arizona's CHL Sundogs.
That in itself tells me that the AHL would be better than the SEL for OEL's North American hockey development if for no other reason than to get him on North American sized sheets of ice. NHL call up players from the AHL not the SEL. If his goal is the NHL than play him against future/ past NHL talent in the AHL.
