I'm just happy that's not really happening to us in any capacity.
Well it's not interfering with any of our prspects but looking at guys like Strome and Hamilton, another year of junior won't hurt them whereas putting them in the NHL might.
I personally prefer to take the cautious road for a prospects development.
