I can not believe this thread is going on and on (LOL). I like Cherry, but i disagree with him when he says this statement. A lot of Canadians play in the NCAA, and having top flight Europeans in the CHL only helps to elevate the level of play in the league.
The CHL is about developing players for the NHL as well. Regardless of nationality, the league should be about developing the best talent for the NHL. Having two Europeans on each team is not the end of the world. I like Don, but he is wrong when he says that.
