Chris Heisenberg does a nice job picking apart an article from Canada that complains that scholarships are drying up for Canadian kids.
Technically, Simmons does have a point that fewer Canadian kids are getting NCAA scholarships, but that is only because your average American-born USHL player is better than your average Canadian-born OPJHL player. Most of the potential college hockey players in Ontario end up in the OHL. At least they get to take advantage of the OHL's scholarship prog...hahahahahaha. Sorry, I couldn't make it all the way through that.
Also of note in the NCAA vs. CHL debate, Pat Kane finished with 145 points in 58 games against the "better competition" in the OHL. That seems like a realistic setting to develop in. People score 2.5 points per game in the NHL, right?
