Thats where I think those 16 and 17 year olds will be. Another side effect would be the Universities in the US and would lose the advantage of Jr A as a development league while waiting for players to turn 20.
Anyway you slice it, Jr A has become "too much business". I know teams in our area spend LOTS of money on players, Woodstock Slammers, Summerside Capitals, Yarmouth Mariners to name a few.
For many Jr A players its the last hoorah of comptetitive hockey, I just can't see the parents of kids rolling the dice trying to get into a Uni somewhere spending nearly the same amount of money a tuition would cost anyhow.
