I'm serious...make the case for me that another year in the OHL is better for his development than a year with guys like Seidenberg, Chara, etc every day in practice. Because I don't see it. I don't see how learning how to exert your physical will on 17 years olds half your size is going to somehow translate to a more aggressive and well rounded player in 12 months.
Well it kind of work for Pietrangelo, I think it's easier to work on your defense in junior, NHL coaches seems to bench defensman who make lots of errors.

If he's playing he could learn in the NHL too, I'm just not buying the "he has nothing more to learn in junior" thing.
