My personal views are similar to Craig Tilsey.

Several years ago at the winter nationals, there was a seminar by a recruiting agency, which it's keynote speaker was a former men's coach from a Big 10 school. Part of his speech was why he personally recruited foreigner players.
His reasons
-older, more mature
-didn't have to hold their hands
-didn't have to deal with the parents
-had professional experience
-worked harder

IMO, coaches have become lazy, not coaching but just managing their teams.
