It's already bad enough you can't drink until your 21, now were going to say you can't do your trade until 20 or later? It's bad enough they scam the players like they do with the college football/pro football relationship.

If you can die for your country you can gain employment in hockey.

Now let's get back to Howson's draft record.
You're comparing government mandates and laws (join military/draft at 18, drinking age at 21, etc.) with policies of a private organization (the NHL). The NHL can make it's minimum age eligibility for the draft whatever it wants. The government has nothing to do with it.

Though I do agree with you that the league shouldn't make any such policy.
