Tiki, yes U.S. born players can go and play at Canadian schools. Secondly, Tim Conolly is a millionaire and can go earn a degree anytime he likes. Its like Bill Guerin said when he left college early to play in the pros, "I have a whole lifetime to earn a college degree but a short time to be a NHL player."


At one time the NCAA was indeed the safer career path but with the full ride education packages now offered to elite players by the OHL, the NCAA's "safety advantage" arguement is no longer valid.
