I think it's a safe bet that the competition is better. Your run of the mill third liner in the WHL does not make it to the development camp. The competition is older (there are no 16-17 year olds, but there are many guys who are 20-22), more polished and usually more talented as well.

I would imagine that nobody takes a night off when they come to play in an NHL camp.
