Good mix

actually, if you look below the surface you'll see top kids coming from all over the country. Texas, Colorado, California, Missouri, Florida all have kids playing at top levels now, but a lot of them end up moving out of state to join the top competitive leagues (like the MWEHL) in the past. It because such a concern that they expanded the MWEHL to play in other states so that kids would stop leaving home. You may see players in Canadian Major Junior or USHL teams listed as being from MA, MI, or MN, but they played mites through bantam or midget in their home state before moving to one of the "hotbeds" to take their game up a notch. Then, the hotbed city gets credit for their development as their "hometown."
