Scheifele just isnt good enough
Hamilton is like Pietrangelo. Hes big, strong, skilled, but he needs to iron out the defensive game

You can make an argument either way for any of these players. Id say one of them is in the NHL next year
This pretty much highlights the problem with AHL ineligibilty for 19 year old CHL players. Too good for juniors, not quite ready for the NHL. Playing AHL hockey and then get released for the WJC would be perfect both for the players and the tournament.
