Are Canadian schools coming to Division I hockey?

Here is an article that gets one thinking – will it be that long before CIS schools are playing in the NCAA Division I hockey? Why or why not?

Lockout will hurt NBCSN

You have to wonder what NBCSN is going to show if the NHL doesn't start on time - I suppose that some of the sports networks could show AHL games to keep NHL Hockey fans semi-interested until the lockout is ended.
