Not many "old" Midgets advance out of U18AAA, in the States anyway.

By "old" Midgets do you mean those in their final year of eligibility? As in, someone who's a '95 that played Midget this year? If so, that's not true, at least in the States. Midget Majors that are in their final year are still scouted, drafted, tendered by Junior A programs extensively, especially compared to Junior B. Overall and generally speaking, Midget Major is better hockey and more competitive than any Junior B (or Tier III Junior A, whatever you want to call's Junior B) league is and scouted much more heavily.

I'd say even someone who's a late '94 playing this year would still be better served playing Midget AAA. It raises some questions why they aren't playing Junior already but everyone's got a different story or reasoning for things. You still see a lot of these kind of players being scooped up by Junior A clubs. AAA is still scouted more and you'll have more eyes on you.
