Ya some numbers to back that up, I would say at least 70% of the players in the futures draft play at least 10 games at some point in the USHL. I am just speculating from experience.
I am a little confused by a few of his statements though. It is usually asst. coaches doing the scouting, so if they are not talented, and rely on coaches input, whom are not truthful or talented, what is the reason Illinois kids are playing in the USHL?
