I think development is more player driven than league driven. If he works hard to improve on his weaknesses, it doesn't matter too much where he plays.

The only thing about the CHL is that bigger players have an advantage at that level. They are able to win more puck battles and protect the puck with their reach and size. This means they don't necessarily skate as hard as they can.
