Tyler Seguin is a perfect example. He simple had no more to learn. Keeping him the CHL wasn't going to help him. So the Bruins kept him up with the team.

Long story short, not every player should be kept on a deviating development model.
Exactly. If the Leafs can bring him up next year and give him sheltered minutes on the 3rd line (2nd if he takes it and run) with some decent PP time he'll develop just fine. Recently we've seen the Leafs make smart moves with development (Gardiner, Kadri). I'm not too worried about the decisions the Leafs make with Rielly, Im sure it'll be the right one.
