The development of soccer players in England (and all of Europe for that matter) is completely different than the development of hockey players in Canada.

Take Germany or Spain for instance, they have the same lack of restrictions as England, and they're arguable the two most dominant nations of the biggest sport in the world.

Also, EPL, La Liga, and Bundesliga et all are professional leagues. Our professional league, the NHL, also allows for as many internationals as can effectively play NHL hockey.

A professional soccer league isn't a valid comparison.
