The excuse of him being a top player won't be available when/if he makes it to the NHL & continues to with his ways. If he wants to be a pest in the big leagues he's going have to answer the bell once in a while. You can't skirt the line & expect not too.
Who cares what he will be when/if he makes it to the NHL. He was SOO top player (their elite skilled player, just like Giroux is Flyers'). He finished 3rd in the OHL's top scorer race. Do you think SOO want their top player to go running around dropping everyone to "train him" for the Flyers because he's "projected" to be in 3rd liner/4th liner in the NHL?
CHL's team are there to win Championship/Memorial Cups as much as NHL team are there to win Stanley Cups... Their priorities is NOT to "train" player for their "projection" in the NHL, it's to win it all...
