I don't think it will have that much of an effect. He's not the first to do this and probably won't be the last. The prestige of playing for your country has it's pull along with the bonus of still being eligible to play college hockey. The NTDP program has it's draws, just like the CHL teams have theirs. It's true though, the USHL is becoming more and more competitive and I can see how within the next ten years the NTDP program would not be so important to have around.
