It is a well known fact the team struggles to attract new billets. You only need to watch the recent billet appreciation video to realize many of these houses are double and triple booked. Good people do it because they are fans of the game and are willing to contribute their own resources to offset the lack of meaningful compensation. Think of what AAA parents have to go through for their kids, now multiply that by a factor of ten for OHL. Special meals, ice baths, laundry, workouts, school, practices, games, travel, social events, community events, drama, more smelly laundry, player's parent's drama, and all the usual teen stuff mixed in with ice time, line position, scouts, the draft, and on and on. All that joy for $500 a month?

It won't surprise me if the billets demand better pay, or stop signing up altogether. The team has to realize that compensating billet families properly is still cheaper than institutional residences.
