Question; is the NCAA competitve enough for elite talent? Will it hold him back playing for a NCAA team or would it be a great way to get used to NA hockey?
Toews played NCAA for two seasons(draft year, and then another year). Yes, NCAA is very competitive for a 17 year old. Obviously you have to be an exceptional talent to play at his age, but I think he qualifies. Unless he's planning to go there post-draft, in which case I don't think it's a good alternative anymore, because he has to play SuperElit another year then where he's already too good.
