Same with Michigan re: top players leaving for Juniors. Also, can't really count Prep - for example of the 20 players on Shattuck's prep team, 15 are from outside Minnesota, one from Latvia. Obviously, both states are top amateur hockey states. Both produce top tier players. I don't think amateur hockey is going sway where Suter signs.
