I was sorely dissappointed in a Bisons Mens hockey game I caught over the weekend and when talking to a friend he said Canada seems to be the opposite of the states. In the states the Universities are where the really good kids want to play and the "juniors" get the kids who cant make the University teams. In canada it seems its the other way around. The kids playing University hockey are the ones who could not make the junior teams.

The US universities give full scholarships. That is what attracts kids to their programs. US colleges will not grant scholarships to kids that play junior hockey (even if they just attend a training camp).

The kids that don't latch on to a professional contract after their junior days can play in Canadian universities.

The whole college sports experience is so much different in the US. I often wish Canadian universities had that same atmosphere.
