Those are two pretty terrible examples. Latendresse has never played a single game in the AHL, and Bailey only played 11 in his 3rd pro season.
If they could have played in the AHL their first two years rather than being over matched in the NHL that probably would have been a good thing.
I agree that Faksa should go back to the OHL, and better examples for your point would be Jeremy Morin (after a single season in OHL) and Jordan Schroeder (same year he was drafted) who both jumped early to the AHL because they were not drafted out of the CHL. They still haven't made the transition to the NHL yet.
