First, I don't know Guelph at all and I'm certainly not picking on them. Bringing kids in from other centres isn't unique to Guelph. Personally I don't think it's right if it's done in the name of winning. Good coaching and training should be able to produce good players and teams and I'm sure Guelph's raw talent is as good as any ones.
It sounds like they have solved a coaching problem. "Un-harrassed ride to date". I like that. It describes a few situations I am unfortunately very familiar with!
