That being said, he's obviously got tons of potential. I expect him to be back in Niagara next year, though.
You would be in the minority with that thought.

A player won't get better beating up on lesser competition. Hamilton flat out dominated this year and has nothing to left to prove/do in the OHL... unfortauntly AHL is out of the equation, so NHL is probably best for him.

No point have him go back to JR's and flat out dominate.... again.

A person only gets better by playing better competition... also being around Chara/Seidenberg and other NHL professionals will do wonders for the kid, learning the game and slowly brought along (like Seguin's rookie year)

Expect Hamilton to be the #6/7 defenseman in Boston next year.
