More on the Recruiting Debate: Appert, Bertagna, Eaves weigh in

Todd Milewski has a fantastic column today about the recruiting debate that has been sparked by Jordan Schmaltz's commitment. In the column, Todd highlights the problematic aspects of recruiting so young, and AHCA president and RPI head coach Seth Appert, AHCA executive director and HE commissioner Joe Bertagna, and Badgers head coach Mike Eaves weigh in on the debate. Not surprisingly, no one's really happy with the situation, but (also not surprisingly) no one has a solution, as schools have to compete with other schools and with the Canadian major junior system.
