While I agree that some may be ready to make the jump. The vast majority of CHL players are not physically ready to play in the AHL. The physical difference between an 18/19 year old and a 25 year old are pretty vast. Yes, there may be a few that could make that transition, but many aren't ready and need to dominate for 2 years (and glow in skill and size). Grachev comes to mind.
