I don't think that's true, but development through an AHL system for all but absolutely elite players is the best path.
I do think it wouldn't have helped for Kane.
He was ready for NHL and proved it by doing well given the conditions.
I don't think it's rushing if someone is ready.
Bogosian is iffy. He had a really great first season, but then seemed to falter.
