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.
That's not the point. They were both rushed into the pro's and their offensive game was stunted. Doesn't matter if it's the AHL or NHL. That's what I was getting at.
