Maybe Major Junior is afraid to even consider such a game. With UNB at the top of the standings you should have an outstanding winter , wish you the best. Go Barrie Colts and Cornell Big Red!!!!!!!!
The NCAA is a mix of the CHL and CIS. Young talent and older grinders.
When Omaha of the USHL played the QMJHL forget which team. Matt White was on Omaha's roster. This was Fall or 07. Matt White is entering his Junior year of the NCAA. The USHL looked pretty good too.
This years gopher teams features 10 players old enough to legally drink. That does not include Bjugstad, WJC alum Rau and soon to be WJC players Reilly and Skjei.
