Interesting to see what Russian posters think of the RHL, the feeder league to the KHL. I dont think any players from there play in the NHL but they supply alot og KHL players. I wonder how it is in comparison to NCAA.
Also, I wonder how a really good Canadian University team like UofA would do against a good NCAA team. Those university teams are almost made up of ex CHLers who are older. Whereas NCAA is made up of americans from USHL and canadians from Jr.A leagues who are 2-3 years younger.
An NCAA team will kill a CHL team. The potential level isn't there (hence less early draftees), but the players as a group are more polished, stronger, and more effective (in large part due to average age). They also regularly play CIS teams and wipe the floor with them.
