You are comparing the NHL to a junior league. It would make more sense to compare the NHL to the NLL and while I don't follow NLL all that closely I think that the champions and top dogs of the pro league are pretty spread out amongst the limited number of teams that there are..
Back to a fair comparison the top Junior A hockey league's in Canada have perennial powerhouses very comparable if not more present than the top Junior A lacrosse leagues. Why do low budget non winning JRA teams of both sports keep coming back? That is a stupid and disrespectful statement.
