It'd be very silly to rush a player like Gaudreau.
It's not rushing him if he's proven to be elite at every level. Put him in the AHL for a year. Reward him for his hard work and success.

Fact of the matter is with Gaudreau playing so well it's at the point where Calgary has to show their faith in him because there will be pressure on him to walk away if he completes four years of college. Two years to develop physically is also an extra two years to develop an ego.
