Players in the NHL are MUCH more physically mature than they are in the CHL. Bigger, stronger and tougher competition in regards to the physical nature of the game.
Would LOVE for you to get me a stat on how many players are 23 and over in the NCAA. Maybe 2-5%? And if they are playing in the NCAA still at that age, they probably aren't very good.
