Maybe the top 5 should be allowed to go to the AHL, but not the first round.
I get the feeling you and I aren't on the same page.
I realized when I said 19 year old season ... the way the CHL would refer to that would typically be the first year after the draft. For example, the player is drafted in June, and September typically starts the 19 year old season.
I meant more along the lines of the AHL. You have to be 20 years old by December 30th (or some date in December) to play in the AHL right now. By 19 year old season, I meant they'd play another year in the CHL (the third CHL season for most draft picks), and then they'd go to the AHL one year early.
Were we talking about the same thing?
EDIT: The way it is now, most CHLers play two years post draft before going to AHL unless they have a late birth date between September and December.
