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.
He is dominating the college stat sheets as well, so it's understandable if the Flames do push him to go to the AHL. But there's also the question of whether Gaudreau wants to leave college early. He could want to stay.
Also, I don't believe Gaudreau (or Jankowski) can pull a Shultz. Neither will qualify for that loophole.
