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.
I agree that's a step that Kuhnhackl could take. I never said he couldn't or shouldn't be put back in junior. I'm only arguing that the reason shouldn't be because he needs to be "the go to guy." If he's good enough to be in the AHL in a top 6 role, I think that would be better for his development.
