Custance looks at the challenges Kelley is facing in his new job, trying to get prospects to go to college programs, rather than Canadian juniors.

CHL did a great thing for themselves by offer a full ride while the player is still in the CHL and giving 1 year full scholarship for every year played to any uni in the world.

Dont see why someone would chose to wait 2-3 years to play NCAA when they get the same benefits from Major Junior.

Those deals are voided if they make the pros. For your Halls, that's not so bad. For the marginal guys that perhaps play in the AHL for 5 games, they're completely screwed. NCAA, you already have a degree, so even if you only make it to the AHL for 3 games, you're still set for the future.

Of course, every 16 year old is going to be an NHL superstar, so that doesn't matter to them.

Are you sure about that--Two players who I played with--when the system was first introduced--made it to the show for a short--but couldn't cut the mustard and ended up going to Uni via the program that was set up with WHL--this was a few years ago--but I thought it was part of the contracts they sign with the CHL

The new trend that they are trying to start/have started, is guys getting atleast 2 years of Uni in while they are in the CHL, then doing 2 years of Uni before signing a pro contract. It would work out no different then the NCAA. Like you stated, it wont really matter for the top guys, but it does help the marginal players ALOT.

Higher level of hockey at an earlier age + full ride to any school in the world is a pretty good deal. Whether certain players are smart enough to finish 2 years of Uni before they sign a contract is a different story altogether.

Actually i think that is right, i think they have 18 months after finishing MJ to enroll, no matter if they played pro or not.

I think
