NCAA didn't have very good reputation in Finland before but IMO it has changed as we can see there comes quality players even to play in SM-Liiga. Of course there is different guality in the NCAA divisions but the good divisions are really good. So I would expect to see even more Finns trying that path in the future. IMO it's good that the kids experience different leagues/coaches/gamestyles/countries.

One example of the junior system here. Jokerit (SM-Liiga team) is having lots of injuries this season but the A-juniors Jokerit team players have filled the positions well as both teams play same kind of game system --> it's easier for the A-juniors to step in the higher level.
