To be "the best" a player can be in an NHL environment, I view it as a 75% player responsibility, 25% coaching staff.

Well, the player can't do much about management putting them in a league where they're buried on the depth chart and can't play their natural position..

Sounds like OP is arguing the same thing I was a few months ago.
Is the benefit of playing against older players in the AHL while having less responsibilities and playing out of position better for his development?
No, probably not IMO.
They may be older and stronger, but skill development is the biggest thing with him and it's not really going to be happening there.
