No kidding.

If anything the WJC will assist in his development by putting him in a leading role in a pressure packed situation on the international stage. It would be nice for him to have that type of experience before being thrown into the Stanley Cup Playoff pressure cooker for the first time.

Sure, the competition in the AHL may be better, but this is a rare opportunity for him over a reasonably short term, and I highly, highly doubt that this will negatively affect his development in any sense.
