But I do agree that playing pro already would do his game good, more so than the CHL. The CHL could get him accustomed to smaller rinks though.
Not knowing the particularies of his contract for Biel, but it really seems that Nikolaj Ehlers got an offer he couldn't refuse. Maybe because Biel knew he was already half gone for Sweden, they came with a sweet deal.
Maybe he has a clause where he is sure to play (maybe even top6 for development?) and will not be send down to juniors and/or he was offered much better money than he could get in Sweden??
Playing a full year with the men in NLA surely beats an insecure spot in allsvenskan or SEL or playing in CHL with juniors. Even Nicklas Jensen was benched in AIK. I'm sure Nikolaj Ehlers thought about that when he chose Biel.
