Hollywood: I really appreciate all the work you put into providing us with all these stats but in the end they are just numbers and the game is played on the ice. I am going to take you to task on your comment about UBC's recruiting. Unlike the other CanadaWest teams,(Manitoba included) and the AUS, teams like UBC, U of T, Ottawa, Western and McGill all have higher admission standards thus the difficulty in recruiting players whose life focus to date has been hockey. Most players coming out of the CHL just don't have the grades to get into the top academic schools. Certainly there are other reasons like tuition fees and geography that have to be considered but teams can only recruit players who will be admitted.
