My question is, the best kids will always try to make the Bruins, Hitmen etc. In what world will the Pirates and Yankees ever be as competitive as those top teams as their roster is generally filled with Jr. Bruins cuts? I really don't see it happening. I think the gap can be closed a little, but there will always be a definitive line between the top 8 and the rest.
It will always depend on the coaches. Better recruiters that have proven to move players on to the D1 level will always be able to get the best players. I feel there's "one shot" for certain teams to get it right with a coaching staff. PAL placed players in D1 last year and thus players will want to go play for those coaches. On the flipside, doesn't look so bright for Bay State or Philly. Portland and CT both have new coaches, so we'll see what happens there.
