By making the CHL restricted to Canadian players, we can develop more players, and bring our national program back to the level it belongs at. This will help other countries to, as it will push them to improve their junior programs.
I heard that a lot of the Junior players from the Czech Repbulic play in the CHL and it's something their federation doesn't like. They have a rule saying all their players need to have contracts with various teams over there if they play in the CHL incase they want to come back home, however they do wish more players wouldn't play in Canada.
