Let's not forget that little tournament at the St. Pete Times Forum in 2012. Most people call it the NCAA Frozen Four.

You're always hinting at something greater.

You mean CHL or juniors in general? Cause most USHL/NAHL players go to the NCAA afterwards. And most European prospects play with professional clubs not the junior teams.

As far as the CHL goes, I would say the main reason is parity. There are a lot more teams that could win the CHL any given year than there are powerhouse NCAA programs. If you're a Russian hockey player looking to get into the North American system, it makes a lot more sense to go the CHL route and pretty much be guaranteed to at least get noticed by a scout than play for a sub-par NCAA program that doesn't really have a chance to win anything and therefore doesn't get as much attention from scouts.

So I guess you have a point, the CHL is definitely better than not so good NCAA programs, but the top schools are most likely even better than the CHL.

Which is awesome. I wish I was around for the days NHL teams played on varying sized ice. Ah, the days when home ice advantage actually existed.

LOOK AT THIS INSANITY:

If you want to watch a single game, it'll be $6.99
Want to watch your team's away games? $124.99
Want to watch your team's home AND away games? $199.99
Or you can watch ALL of the games for the low price of $399.99

I mean, really?
That's not only more than NHL Center Ice in any format, but more than NFL Sunday Ticket!!!

From the schedule I found they are showing 4 games from now until the end of the year. That's not much. Supposedly there will be more in 2013, after the Fox Sports deal expires, but for now it kind of sucks.
