I never quite got this argument. Playing in the AHL is only going to help his physical development. They play a lot of weekend games, leaving plenty of time to get a proper training routine during the week. No offense to Union College, but I highly doubt he'll get as good a training as he would in a professional organization.

The ultimate decision should be whether he can continue to develop his on-ice game at Union. A couple months ago, it appeared he was on pace to be a near PPG player in the ECAC in which case I was leaning towards him signing after this season. He looked good in the few games he played top 4 minutes in the WJCs and he played well for a good stretch after the WJCs. It appears he has hit a rut the past couple of weeks and how he finishes the season will be critical in whether he's ready for professional hockey or if he needs another year. As I said earlier, I think he'll probably spend another year at Union.
