Don't look at the league look at the program and their history of moving players on and to where. There are good and bad programs in every league. There are Premier programs that are better than EHL programs, and vice versa.
I'd go so far as to say that you should dig even deeper and look at the coaches in the program. A program may have a good track record of moving players on but then the coach leaves and takes that track record with him to the next place. It really is as much about who you know, who you are playing for, and who is promoting you as it is about how good you are or where you are playing.
So we are making the assumption that the NCDC is head and shoulders above the EHL :joy: :joy:
I'm busting a gut just thinking about that, and USPHL Premier, that level is god awful.
