I think he's saying they should require them to go to College/University for a year first. Like the NBA and NFL does. Although, to counter his point more often then not they take the stupidest classes possible when they go to University. I forget who the football player was on Dan LeBatard's show the other day but he has a degree in Poultry Science. Seriously. Poultry Science.
I would agree though that any kid coming into professional sports should have some sort of program required of them so that they understand a few things. 1) Planning for when they aren't playing hockey anymore. 2) Very basic understanding of contract law at minimum 3) Basic public speaking skills (we really don't need another Jeff Friesen coming along and causing paleontologists to wonder if Neanderthals really died off)
