Great environment (NCAA) for development of 18 and 19 year old talent. Obviously, you have little education when it comes to College hockey!
I was reffering to pro football not college hockey.NFL and CFL are totally different styles of play.As are Canadian junior and NCAA hockey.I do agree that NCAA is probably par with ECHL,except for the amount of physicality involved.Some ECHL games are almost like the movie"Slapshot".
