Most of this thread seems to be an argument about whether or not Canada has proportionate depth, but I'm not really sold on the initial argument. Hitting starts earlier in Canada thus is the reason for Canada's supposed lack of depth?
Proof please. Because while this is obviously anecdotal and kind of irrelevant (I'm American,) it seems to me that the small players who were already slow and unskilled were the ones hit hardest by hitting. To be fair and at the same time anecdotal, the kid who scored 350 pts in a season in Squirts while simultaneously being the smallest player on the ice was devastated by the introduction of hitting. He was never the same player.
I see both sides, but surely a problem like this is not merely the result of one thing.
