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.
There are something like 60 CHL teams. 2 goalies per team means 120 goalies. If 20 of those spots are held by foreigners, that means the top 100 goalies in Canada between the ages of 16-20 are playing in the CHL. What, you think numbers 115-120 are the keys to WJC dominance?
