As a UND/BC fan, I was SO HAPPY to hear that Miller had committed to the Sioux, but I knew that there was some sort of politics behind him leaving for the OHL. I think with some of the players that have been not signing with teams or giving their teams trouble because they wanted to stay (Jack Johnson, Blake Wheeler, etc.) they wanted him to go to the OHL, but Plymouth is a very good team, and UND is still a very good team as well.
I can't complain. Sure, I have my college favorites, but overall, it's about the prospect development, and to me, Wisconsin is a GREAT program that has furnished some quality NHL players, including Stepan, McDonagh, Heatley, Tom Gilbert, and Reinprecht most notably recently.
I'll take Schultz on board here. It's a no brainer.
Isn't one of the benefits of him going to the CHL is that he might be able to crack the AHL faster?
Isn't it also more beneficial, in terms of conditioning, to play in CHL because they play a full season? NCAA plays like 30 something games no?
