It's a great opportunity for american elite players to stay in the US, play with the best here, finish high school and hopefully receive a scholorship to a Div.1 college.
Players that decide to go to Canada lose the opportunity to go to college in this country. The Major Jr. Teams in Canada pay their players.
So what your saying is that players definately don't receive any money but their room, board and traveling expenses, meal expenses etc. are all paid for? This is not paying their player's?
Also doesn't Division 1 schools such as Hockey East provide a lot of the same benefits as well as a $30,000 to 40,000 dollar Hockey Scholarship?
This is not paying their player's?
If players decide to go play in Canada they can't attend a US college and get an Education?
