Depending on how he finishes out the preseason and early regular season, I'd definitely say it would benefit him more to go back to junior than play in the NHL. He can probably still stand to develop his offensive game ALOT more before he comes up full time.

Yeah, the AHL may be the best place if it were possible, but still I'd say if he's not quite right for the bigtime yet then there's nothing wrong with him returning to junior. Nothing wrong with being a dominant defenseman in a league and buulding that kind of confidence in all aspects of your game. If it were like Seguin or Hall who already left the OHL last season as arguably the 2 best players, then that would be different, but Gud was far from that.
