I think that in the second year after they're drafted, this could be a possibility. But, would you argue that leading the Winterhawks in scoring as an 18 year old was a bad thing for Johan's development? I certainly don't think he belonged in the NHL last year (at 19), and maybe the AHL would have been a better option. But, I will also argue that another year in the WHL certainly wouldn't have hurt him.
