CHL must decide if it's amateur or pro
Some big news came out of the University of Denver Tuesday night, as freshman Quentin Shore was considering leaving the Pioneers and joining the Western League’s Portland Winterhawks. Shore, whose brother Nick is the leading scorer for Denver (older brother Drew also played for the program), played for the U.S. national team development program alongside Seth Jones, now a star defenseman for the Winterhawks. But with a night to sleep on it, the picture changed. There’s a lot of controversy surrounding Portland right now and it appears the timing was not right for Shore to jump into the fray.

The title to that article is a misnomer. It's the Portland Winterhawks that need behaviour modification, not the CHL. The CHL has nothing to do when one of it's teams goes rogue and breaks rules.
University Hockey should not get itself so worked-up/ The WHL and the greater governing body, the CHL have one eye on Portland and the other on the road in front. They won't allow anymore hanky-panky. Now if a kid himself thinks that his stock is going to improve draft-wise by going over to Junior from Uni, who can really say that he was recruited?. or who can blame him for wanting to increase his chances?
