NCAA vs. Major Junior

Chris Dilks talked about this a couple days ago, but I'll give this additional mention here. The Hockey News polled 283 NHL players recently, and here's the results for one of the questions:
If you had a son who was an NHL prospect, would you prefer to see him play:

1) U.S. college hockey (140) 52%
2) Major junior hockey (104) 39%
3) European hockey (26) 10%
Wow... I think the results speak for themselves. Something to consider, however... the 26 players favoring option #3 are all likely to be Euros, so from a North American standpoint, the percentage of players preferring the NCAA is 57.4%.
