To say a that a team with 5 1st round picks would get schooled by
Minnesota-Duluth is ludicrous.
Huberdeau will be able to pull off
the same **** in the NHL, wait 5 years and Tomas Jurco will do some of the same **** that Datsyuk does.
Top NCAA team can give the the top CHL teams a run for their
money but the skill level of the CHL is far superior.
Add in that many top American prospects are headed for CHL teams.
If the level of play in the NCAA was so high then why did Jack Campell and John Gibson choose the OHL over BU ?
Adam Erne and Brendan Shea both chose CHL.
If the CHL is a lower caliber of play then why are so many top prospects playing there ?
No it's a ****ing maturity issue. If teams led by 18 and 19 year-old first round picks were always the best college teams then the Gophers would have 9 NCAA titles this decade instead of 2.
Now seriously, why the **** is this a discussion? The Wild aren't going to suggest to their collegiate prospects to take the Canadian route and they're taking their time with Coyle at BU. Lets embrace the fact they aren't rushing a prospect for once and want to let someone be a better teammate.
Also MTLjuniors as a side note, you're mixing up BU with Michigan for Campbell and Gibson.
