Call me un-American, but I just hate to see highly touted prospects playing at the collegiate level, especially kids who have the natural talent level of Eichel. IMO, he'd be much better suited playing against other top prospects in the chl.

It's probably an unfounded belief. I mean plenty of great players have come out of the collegiate ranks, but they're fewer in number as compared to the developmental capabilities of the chl.
