Just an as example to my previous post - Seth Jones, who was a significant part of the US gold medal team is in his first CHL season after spending 2 with the US development team. He didn't come here to train, he came here to get more ice time than he would in the NCAA and fast track his way into the NHL.

Aside from "fast track (ing his (their) way into the NHL", there are other benefits such as preparing them for the NHL (by that, I mean the idea of actually playing in the CHL, be it the OHL, or etc.) is still beneficial to them even if they have already undergone development under the U.S. hockey program.
