I'm a bit torn on this one. I do think a players should have access to his education package regardless of signing a pro contract, but I think there has to be a time limit on it. The education package was established offset the education opportunities the student had to forego to play in the CHL. If a player plays in the NHL, he's received a benefit from playing in the CHL, and there may be no lost education opportunities (i.e. he wouldn't have continued in school after his NHL contract kicked in). In your scenario, Sidney Crosby would be eligible for 2 years of university tuition courtesy of the Rimouski Oceanic forever, despite earning more in one year than Rimouski makes in three years.
