I don't know if the CIS ever graduated a player to the NHL.
It was an unfair game really. But I don't think their spirits will be crushed or anything. Once you're in the CIS, your spirit's already crushed when it comes to hockey. In CIS, you pretty much only play for fun.
As silly as it sounds, with Canada being Hockey Country, American college hockey is better than the CIS. Case in point, many Canadians who are going for academics on top of hockey go play in the NCAA, not the CIS.
This game tonight doesn't prove much. The tournament finals will be interesting though.
I know the caliber wasn't there , but Florida beat them 5-1 , Toronto 7-0 ...
