He'll go to a better school now... I fail to see how it's supposed to be a mistake.

There is obviously a difference of opinion between Americans and Non Americans. He should have just stayed in his own country and played there to begin with.

Because BU is a bad school? Of course he can go to school later, but it won't be paid for. Right now he is playing hockey for a big time program, and getting a first-class education for, I assume, almost free. If he signs any sort of pro contract, the CHL education package is null.

I didn't say BU is a bad school, I just said McGill is a better one.

We're talking about Quebec, Canada, where college doesn't cost much.

Thank God, his life isn't over because he left the NCAA!

Yeah, you're probably right there.
He could have gotten five years of free education at a place like McGill if he didn't successfully become an NHL'er.

Not true.
If he signs an NHL contract, it's null.
If he signs any other pro contract, he has 18 months to start using the scholarship.

Exactly.
Even if he doesn't get his school paid for, at least he doesn't have to get himself into crushing debt to go to a great school since it's not a ruthless business like in the states.

$42k in tuition (BU) vs. $2-4k (McGill) for Québec residents.
Seems like a no-brainer to me.

I agree, US Colleges should be giving scholarships to only US players. Let everyone else develope in their own countries system.

Some of the comments here are funny...

First Jack Parker is a clown... BU a circus....

Second, I saw Yasin play at 15... He was better then Louis Leblanc...

He has the talent... That doesn't go away.. If anyone in the world can get him going it's the Armada..

He made a smart choice, this move might save his career.

I don't think that's what he was getting at..

As far as the coach is concerned, I appreciate the fact that he's a straight shooter but the way he did it wasn't necessarily the most professional way. It's one way to have a conversation like this behind closed doors or to the player directly but it'd be disheartening for anybody to have a former employer to give all the ins and outs about a sensitive situation like Cissé's. It's like having my former employer publicly stating that he's doubtful that I'll have success in the field that I've dedicated my life to but saying that I'm a good guy though. How should I react to that?

And I had to point this out. I'm in no way trying to attack what you're saying, just trying to make sense of it all, but you originally said that he will regret not staying with BU, but now he should have just stayed in Canada to begin with. He obviously felt like this was the best route when he started and then injuries and everything came into play so he wasn't able to have the kind of success that he wanted. It's not to say that he wouldn't have had success at all nor that it was the wrong choice to go there in the first place, it was just his luck and he was unhappy with the situation eventually. That's like saying to a girl who dumps you, "if you were going to leave me at some point, why did you go out with me in the first place?" There are just some things you can't predict

Not even close. Cisse was dominant for a 15YO that year, Louis was the most dominant player in the league. Unless you mean Cisse was a better 15YO than Louis at 15, you're sadly wrong.

That's what I meant... He was better then Louis at 15...

Louis destroyed AAA in his 2nd year... It was ridiculous..

At 15 Yasin was better.

It does say that, odd. But from the goal that led to him being a +1 for the game, he was on the ice with Hodhod and Hinds. Probably lining up on the left side of that line.

Don't worry. They also listed Alex Veronneau as a D-man and he's definitely a goalie (team stats, not game stats)

I think it's just the default position (alphabetical order no doubt) so they just didn't catch it right away. It's not the first time, it won't be the last lol

Good to see. It would be nice to see him have a strong finish to the season and give JETS management something to think about.

Now you see the difference of him playing against boys in the Q versus men in NCAA.

if he did well you'd say that, if he did bad you'd say "Look he's bad"...

Do you wanna compare which league produces better pro's, NCAA or CHL?
