You want to improve high school hockey, than start applying pressure on the hockey programs. NTG (Historically Speaking) can not do it themselves. Bring the other programs up to NTG level. We have seen this in recent years with the emergence of St. Rita, St. Viator, and insert another program here.
Do not count on or blame AHAI to fix the game. AHAI just regulates the game. AHAI only makes rules and regulations. Every once in a while they will put a nice tournament together with some pretty balloons and banners.
It's up to the programs themselves. Same as expecting the government to fix all the issues.

BRING THE AAA PLAYERS TO HIGH SCHOOL HOCKEY.
FORCE AAA PROGRAMS TO PLAY DURING THE SUMMER. IT WILL BENEFIT EVERYONE.

I guarantee you that the kids would love it! AAA and AA kids world live to play for their schools. Look at baseball, basketball, and volleyball as examples. in those sports the clubs work around the school season!

Minnesota hockey is mediocre when you take away the 1-4 kids going D1 off the roster. The rest of the kids are about as good as illinois high school. Keep AAA for kids who want to get better.

So Minny has 1-4 players going to D-1, I assume you mean per team. This is WAY MORE than Illinois places at D-1 from any level including AAA.
Then the observation that the rest of the players are mediocre at best, funny how the abundance of high end players are able to play with/against the mediocre ones and make it work.
Make it work in fact to place more D-1, D-3 and pro players than any state. Yeah why should we try and emulate that program when we can all remain divided?
