So I take it you watch a lot of USHL games?

Again, the USHL has not been a junior league for all that long. They have had guys like Vanenk, Paul Stastny, Mike Komisarek, RJ Umberger, Keith Ballard, Erik Cole, Ryan Malone, Dan Ellis, Rostislav Klesla, David Hale, Andrew Alberts, Matt Greene, Tom Gilbert, Joe Pavelski, Matt Carle, David Backes, Blake Wheeler, TJ Oshie, Kyle Okposso, John Carlson, Pat Wiercioch, John Moore, etc...

The USHL is just a stepping stone to the NCAA, so it shouldn't be compared with the CHL.

As for every Timmins pick from the US being a bust, well I can tell this will be waste of time then.
