I can see how you misunderstood me. I just meant that Despres was good enough to move up to the AHL but he was prohibited due to his age and CHL draft status. I didn't mean NHL.

My point was, even if Despres was good enough to play in the AHL he was better served to go back and play another dominant year in the Q. Look at the season he had this year...he went from above average defensively to a shutdown pairing for Team Canada at the World Juniors. That's the type of next step that Kuhnhackl could take.
