I think it's kinda funny that the Rangers' 1st round draft pick who is actually skipping college is probably going to end up being the "smarter" one.

The numbers dont lie -- the CHL is better at developing stars.

The top-40 scorers in the NHl last season, only one (David Backes -- 39th) played over two years of NCAA hockey. The handful of NCAA-trained scorers in the top-40 (Toews, Kessel, Pavelski, Kesler etc) all played two years or less.

And I didnt count MSL because he played in the NCAA during a time where it was developing stars who played three or four years.
