While not all the older players are "grinders," and not all the young players are the "talent," I think his comparison is valid.
CIS lacks the star power of the future or current NHL first round draft picks, but contains older players who are done their junior eligibility. In the CHL, all players must be junior eligible.
With the NCAA, there is a combination, some teams have junior eligible players (some of whom are the top NHL prospects), and some have the players who played 4 years of junior and are now in their 3rd or 4th year of college.
