But it does boost the competitive level for those who remain. Do you want a weaker league for 100 Canadian kids or a stronger league for 80? The ones who are going on to the next level, in the majority of cases, aren't the ones who are going to get displaced anyway, they're already in the 80, save for a few late blooming exceptions. I don't think Cherry has any valid point at all anywhere in this whole thing. It's just his flailing attempts to rationalize his xenophobia - conscious or subconcious, whatever. He's probably a nice enough guy and all and at least he *wants* to rationalize it. But he's missing the mark, and giving us a weaker CHL to watch isn't what we want.
