I strongly recommend staying within these schools.*

Here's a sortable list of every former college hockey player in the NHL this season (and their school): http://m.collegehockeyinc.com/node/293

As you can see with the list, it's pretty obvious which schools we should stay with. In terms of the number of NHL players produced and the quality of those players, it's not even close. Sure, if you want the next Harry Zolnierchuk or Aaron Volpatti - go ahead and draft/sign that kid from Brown. (We apparently have a kid from Brown in the AHL. LOL)

There's always exceptions and not all the best talent ends up at those 6 schools. I won't complain if you pick someone from another big school (Boston University,*Minnesota-Duluth,*Colorado College to name a few), but you better be sure about him if you stray from the elite group.
