Bang on IMO. RNH get's a hell of a lot more development bang for the buck playing for his country in a high pressure tournament such as the WJCS then he would in a handful of AHL games.

He'll get his fill of the minors when he gets back. He'll never get the world juniors back if he misses it. The Oilers would be idiots to not send him. Thankfully, I don't think they are.
