I think you guys missed the sarcasm of "most of the scholarships go to EHF Elite kids." The point he was attempting to make, I think, is that for the parents looking at hockey as an investment, they would have a better return on that investment pursuing academic excellence than hockey. We all know the delusional parents and in my experience, they are a very small minority but some like to think that 95% of parents believe their kids are going somewhere beyond HS with hockey. They are, it's called beer leagues.
I assume that folks starting these types of threads are simply a parent that choose not to let their kid play select/elite hockey for whatever reason and need to justify their decision.
