Nor do 1st overall picks get held up when it comes to joining the NHL either.
Difference is other teams have good quality veterans for those 1st overalls. We didn't. So yeah they might in some way learn less in the juniors but I think the development could be better cause they aren't trying to learn things while also having tons of pressure to win at an nhl level.
