Also, NCAA (especially the CCHA) as a whole is not a bad developmental route, especially for defensemen who tend to take longer. There are problems in all type of developmental leagues:

I agree with you on the NCAA route. I think the CHL is a great league, but it's not the be all and end all. Some prospects like Trouba, want to experience college and perhaps get a degree while doing that. I don't think it's a bad idea if you want to get your education, since you never know when an injury could derail a career. There's also life after hockey. I think some get too stuck in their idea of Nationalism.
