The CHL also has no restictions on players from the USA as having a shared border eliminates the import rule
Does Hockey Canada finance the entire league? Do they only take Canadian money? Do they only take Canadian employees (coaches, etc)? Is every CHL team even located in Canada? Protectionist logic is faulty.
And how about all those other junior leagues I mentioned?
First article on CHL.ca BTW.
