Probably 70% of the playing time in the CHL is taken by 18-20 year olds and Johnny would be seeing top pairing Dmen against him at least 80% of the time.

I think the time for that move was this year not next year anyways, IMO he probably stays at BC.

It depends on how much muscle he can add to his body but right now I don't see him being physically ready to play and develop in the AHL, time will tell.
