Interesting the quotes from Jack Campbell, who was traded today from Windsor to the Soo.
Jack decided to go to the OHL in large part because he was able to stay close to home. Windsor is about an hour and a half drive from Jack's hometown of Port Huron, MI. Now he is going to be nowhere close to home, if I had to guess over 6 hours away, maybe more in the winter.
I'm not sure Jack expected to be playing in the Soo when he made his decision to go to the OHL.
And yes, the trade factor is definitely one to consider in the NCAA vs. CHL debate. If you sign at Michigan or Wisconsin you can't be traded to Alaska or Michigan Tech, in the CHL you can be traded to Moose Jaw or Sudbury.
