His grades were not great but he was still eligible so in my opinion, he did nothing more than quit on his team to play for another for a maximum of 5 months. This after St. Cloud took him when he couldn't get in to UNH. Congrats Cam, you just screwed a locker room full of guys counting on you for totally selfish reasons.
Just read about this in the WHL thread. He apparently has been promised 1st line time, between Ty Rattie (32nd overall St. Louis) and Sven Bartschi (13th overall Calgary). But like you said, he's already 20. Makes no sense from a development stand point, and while Portland is in the top four of the Western Conference, they're by no means the favourite to win the WHL.
