As one who has though an "import limit" has been ridiculous for a long time, I obviously disagree with Cherry's comments. Guy is just an old fool who's "best by" date passed a decade ago.

Limiting player numbers by birthplace just doesn't make any sense. Why limit the talent level willingly? It'd be as dumb as saying a team can only have 2 right hand shooters.

IMO, these artificial limits are why most grinder types in NHL are Canadians/north Americans. CHL teams only want top end non-NA talent due to these limits, hence 3rd or 4th line types are never seen over here for the most part, never really have the chance.
