They have business if they earn a spot.

Playing a year or so in the AHL shouldn't be a mandatory thing...if players show they're ready then give them a roster spot. If they show they need some work, then send them to the AHL.

Not every player develops the same way. I'd personally guess that Stepan would need some time in Hartford, but if he comes to camp and looks good and earns a spot on the NHL roster, then that's what he deserves.
