The thing is, where would you play Laughton? I agree with his junior coach, DJ Smith, that playing Laughton on the fourth line does nothing but stunt his development. I know some will point to Couturier as proof otherwise, but Couturier's offensive game hasn't progressed to where it should be and I'm beginning to wonder if maybe there's some merit in terms of not developing players on the fourth line.

As well, the good thing about Laughton going back to junior is that he's getting the opportunity to really build his offensive game. He would never get that opportunity if he stayed in Philadelphia. We're watching him really turn things up offensively and maybe that's a good thing for him - get some confidence going offensively and when he comes to camp next year, he pushes everyone and maybe knocks someone out of the center spot to the wing. I know "high improbable", but not impossible either.
