I disagree. But I also think NCAA hockey is more fun to watch than NHL hockey or college football vs NFL...so that's my frame of reference.
In team sports it's different, I too love college sports as well as the World Juniors because the passion is not yet compromised by money... but to watch individual sports without the best competitors in the world, I can't see a bigger attraction in that than what is now. Plus people found ways to cheat on the amateur status, it just felt messy. Ingmar Stenmark was not allowed to ski in 1984 while the whole Soviet hockey team were 100% professionals.

BILODEAU REPEATS WITH MOGULS GOLD
As expected, it came down to Canadians Alex Bilodeau and Mikael Kingsbury for the men's moguls gold medal at the Sochi Olympics. Experience beat youth. Bilodeau captured his second straight gold medal. He's a Canadian but its a nice story. USA USA USA
