It is really too bad - it would be nice if they'd consider implementing an "exceptional" status with regards to the CHL / AHL, but on the other hand, I can see why the CHL wouldn't go for this. You're essentially taking the cream of the crop out of the CHL pool, and lessening the draw for those teams.

Scheifele has 10G and 7A for 17PTS in 8 games since going back to Barrie. Classic tweener. Too good for the O (or at least, isn't being pushed to the next level), but can't play AHL.
