Bottom line, if he needs more seasoning to play college, I would rather see him in the chl.
Then he wouldn't be able to play college.

The kid wants to go the college route (and as a late bloomer that makes sense) but he's still very raw so a year in the USHL to round out his game and his body should do him well. The Blues will have 4 yrs to evaluate him whereas if he went to the CHL, they'd likely only have 2 yrs to make a decision on him.
