Regardless, it is very encouraging to finally have a minor league affiliate performing at a level that suggests promise for the future.
My opinion, which I'm sure will be in the minority, is to leave as many of these guys as possible in Springfield for as long as possible to help the long term development of the Jackets.
Normally I would want them to stay in the AHL, CHL, etc...., but especially this year. I don't think there is much to gain from bringing them up for a shortened season. Plus, the draft is loaded. While I don't want us to lose on purpose, it probably would be best for the team to get as high of a draft pick as possible.
