You folks are clueless, the World Juniors is played on an Olympic size sheet where there is plenty of room to be skilled, also the NCAA layers that participate are only Freshman playing in an older league (NCAA), more similar to the NHL game. There is no comparison between the CHL and NCAA, CHL teams would be destroyed.
Team Canada is essentially a major junior team. They would get destroyed? Talk about clueless. Check out their results pal. Many gold medals. How about the USA college kids? Haha
U have no clue. The WJ is not a good gage to judge leagues. CHL is littered with 16/17 year old players throughout their teams. The Canadian team players like the US WJ team are mostly 19 and sometimes 18. These are the older kids in the CHL. The US kids on WJ team are on the other hand the younger kids on college teams... College teams as a whole are much better due to age and strength entering the conversation.
You are the clueless one saying the USA kids are just freshmen. Wrong.
Also, at the same age level team Canada (Major Junior players) dominates team USA (D1 college players). I know you dont like this, but FACT.
Each have won 3 in past 10 years. Not dominant wingnut.
Wow, yeah the USA college kids are so much stronger than the Major Junior kids. Lol:joy:
WJ U20 not always played on Olympic size sheets. Depends on host and facilities used. Many NHL arenas have been used in games throughout the years and none are Olympic size
They win it a lot more than the US collegw kids do. Dummy
