When you state that Wisconsin has done an all star team from HS keep in mind that is picked BEFORE anybody goes to the Capitols or Admirals. Up there it is the best deal to play on Team Wisconsin (Usually best coaching too) than on the AAA teams. Madison's program has really gone down hill in the last 5 years.
Now keep in mind when you go to pick your Illinois All Star team 84 of the top players in the state are not going to be available because they are already on a AAA team. Notice, I did not say the BEST 84 players.
I am simply pointing out the difference with IL and WI. My son played in both systems. This post has nothing to do with the difference between AAA and HS.
