    Who is the competition?

    There's a steady stream of announcements and shocked reactions to DI hockey players signing with pro teams before their college eligibility has expired. More often than not the immediate destination of these players is not given, nor the terms of their contract. In order for college hockey fans to consider who's the culprit in these cases - the players, the NCAA, the NHL, or Junior Hockey [and how best to reduce early exits] more information is needed in these announcements.

    Start with "The Latest" category on the home page of this site: "Jooris gives up senior season at Union to sign with Calgary," but you will have to read the article or fall back on your Cheetos. BTW: The article makes no mention of what team Jooris will report to or how much he signed for. Of course this information is of no interest to the Cheeto wing of the Know Nothing Party.

    So the snack-pac doesn't know or care if early departures sign for fifteen hundred dollars or five hundred thousand dollars, or whether they report to the Bae-Comeau Drakkar, the Gwinnett Gladiators, or directly to the NHL. Speaking of drugs, what do they put in those Cheetos anyway?

    Once again you have decided to start a thread over a non-existent issue and then decided to stick your fingers in your ears when people point that out. What, exactly, is the conversation you are hoping to initiate?

    The details of a contract are not immediately released in most cases. Once they become public, it is not difficult to find the information. It's already been stated that Jooris signed an entry level contract (so you have at least an idea about what the numbers will look like) and will play for the Flames' affiliate in Penticton.

    Now that you have that information, what is it you plan on doing with it in way of determining who the "competition" is?
    Just a heads up, the issue of early departures and the decision by players to leave college for minor league hockey is one that is not new and that has been discussed in relation to various other topics for well over a decade.
    Welcome to Division 1 college hockey.
