Each case is special, I'm talking about Grigorenko. Would he develop better now in a professional league? Absolutely. Whether it's Russia or AHL, it's quiet obvious he's ready for more.

BTW, what's the ratio of players staying to those leaving, like 100:1? 200:1?

Not only do we stop to ask ourselves, a Jr league was created, and an AHL alernative was created. Players are given more and more lucrative options to stay home and develop without radically having to change their lives just to play hockey. It's not going unnoticed, if that's what you're implying.
