It's a disservice to Morgan and the Leafs organization to put him in a spot where he is not ready to be in.
How would we know if he's ready or not if we don't give him a chance at training camp? If you don't see him play against/with NHL-calibre competition, how could you make a definitive ruling on the matter, either for or against?

Also, he can't play in the AHL next year, not until he's 20. If he indeed isn't ready for the NHL next season, he'll play another year in Junior.
