I am thoroughly convinced that the best course of action is completely dependant on the individual player themselves and the team they would be returned to in Junior. If they were to return to a less than stellar Junior team, with little to no chance to compete for the League Championship or the Memorial Cup, I have to wonder if that, in fact is a year where a player can develop and grow outside of physically.
Either way, each player is different, and I am not nearly schooled enough at the art of player development to make this call 100%. I was totally on board with Seguin remaining a Bruin, I didn`t EVER envision him as a guy who`d be getting 15-18 mins a night. Outside of 2nd unit PP time which I think would have been good for him, he got pretty much what I had thought he would.
I was hoping for 30-40pts as a great year 1, he didn`t get that but I, in no way consider year 1, on a Cup winning team will hinder his growth that`s for sure.
