I'm not a fan of the exploitation and professional treatment that goes on in the CHL. Granted i didn't go through it.

I prefer the amature status and strict policies the NCAA employs. I like that the players have to resort to physical training and practice to make up for less games.
Listen,

First, Sid went to SSM at 14 years old.

Second, I completely understand your point of view. I have a younger sibling that played both junior hockey and university hockey (I myself only was drafted in the CHL). But I think you might be fooling yourself by thinking that any of these guys are amateurs (in the true sense of the word).
