Re: Hockey east over the years versus present

There are over 50 Mass players alone in HE, so development isn't really at the crux of why BU & BC have fallen off. To the OP's question, BU & BC seem to be recruiting all-stars vs teams. They were getting the most skilled players but you still need 3rd & 4th line guys and that can be a difficult transition for a kid whose been #1 on every team he's ever played on since he was six.
