I'm suggesting that Seth Jones does what Seth Jones wants and what's in the best interest of Seth Jones. I'm not an "NCAA" guy or a "CHL" guy. To even think one way or another is "better" for him, right now, is just dumb. If he is the sure shot that many people think he is(and as someone who has actually seen him live on a number of occasions, I do) he could go play in the NAHL and still be a great player. This "better for his development" stuff that NCAA/CHL people get into, is just serious "lulz" between people who are either biased or don't understand the sport at the junior-aged level.
