What I have heard is that staying in Juniors would help his development because he would be "THE MAN" down there. What I'm saying (basically just guessing) is that players of high intellectual ability (smarts if you will) are better equipped to deal with the psychological ups and downs of coming into the league at such a tender age. Dustin Brown seems to fit into this category better than most prospects his age. But, like I said it's just a guess and I won't deny that there isn't always a direct correlation between smarts and confidence.
