On top of the junior leagues being stripped of their top players, the school issue is HUGE for the 3 leagues. While it is it's own thing if a top pick plays in the NHL and still has a bit of high school to finish, going to the AHL and still having a bit more high school is different. I think it is a credit to the 3 leagues to have spoken up on this issue in the past as being so important.
