CHL Players using their Education Packages...

Perhaps Canadians would not jump for the dangling carrot — major junior players being eligible for the NCAA — if the country's own brand post-secondary puck received its due more frequently.

Whatever becomes of those agitating for a union in the Canadian Hockey League in the name of education, education, education, remains to be seen. (In the wake of Tuesday's bombshells, one does wonder who would sign a membership card furnished by a group facing serious allegations about its spokesman's identity and past.) During all this tumult and shouting about the CHLPA, though, it's often been overlooked that Canadian Interuniversity Sport is already holding up its end of the bargain on helping junior grads combine a high calibre of hockey with higher education.

The dream-factory economics of developmental hockey in Canada, selling hope, dictates CIS players often perform in front of crowds a fraction of the size of what they experienced as teenagers in the CHL. But the ever-improving quality of play is undeniable. Perennial Top 10 CIS squads attract players who opted to use their junior-league education packages instead of trying their luck with an AHL contract.
