Come to think of it I can't think of any who move from the CHL to the NCAA, anybody know of any?
When a player moves from the NCAA to the CHL they are a year better than they were in the NCAA.
Perhaps the older players play better defensively especially with the no fighting and icing
College has gotten better but still does not produce the quantity and caliber of the CHL
The NCAA doesn't allow players from major jr. to play in the NCAA.
Charlie Coyle and Duncan Keith both moved from the NCAA to the CHL mid season and still more than doubled their PPG in the CHL
Older players do play better defensively but they also play better offensively that's why D-1 averages similar GPG (goals per game) as the CHL yet players that move from the NCAA to the CHL score a LOT more playing jr.
I agree College has gotten better but still does not produce the quantity or caliber of the CHL but college players are bigger, faster, stronger, smarter and much better hockey players than CHL players because they are older and further along in their development. A 21 yr old college player is much better than when he was 18 and an 18 yr old jr player isn't nearly as good as he will be when he is 21.
Not really. What he's saying isn't against forum rules. Your last couple posts however, have been (I deleted one).
You guys can disagree without the insults.
Fair enough except without the bulls***. You have any say in the matter? You watch any MJ hockey or D-I hockey? Honestly I don't care if you removed a post of mine.
Fair enough. Like Jonhnster9999 you probably watch no D-I hockey or MJ hockey. Cool...
I watch a lot of jr hockey.
