At the same time, one has to consider how that would impact the CHL. Part of the reason there are prospects that develop nicely, is that the CHL has an incentive to develop those prospects. If those are taken away prematurely, there is no interest for junior leagues to do anymore than make the league interesting for 16-18 years old, and no one would benefit from it.

In this particular case, Duclair could benefit from playing an extra year in the Q so he can lead his team in the playoffs. I talk about what I know, and in the QMJHL, there are very few cases of players sticking for too long... Huberdeau is the most recent one, if the lockout had killed the NHL season. Drouin might be the next borderline case. Duclair doesn't seem to be, he has shown to be motivated up until his last game of the season, and I'm sure he's hungered enough for win.
