Gonna have to disagree with Jonathan. I don't think that the NCAA is the best route to the NHL. I have felt, and will always feel the best route is the CHL, then the AHL, and then the NHL.

Yes, in the NCAA he will be playing against older players. he will also not be focusing on hockey 100%. He won't be playing near as many games. and he won't get used to that pro grind. I think NCAA players get kinda shafted in that aspect.

For every Derek Stepan there's a Matt Gilroy. im not a big believer in the NCAA being a developmental league. every year significantly more players enter the NHL from the CHL than the NCAA, thats just a cold hard fact.
