    2013 NHL Draft:

    OHL - 37 players drafted

    WHL - 33 players drafted

    QMJHL - 31 players drafted

    No....nothing is even like the OHL...

     



    you are beyond repair. you pick one draft year just look at nhl teams and see where the  Ohl ranks as far as producing nhlers

     



    Classic response there.  It's not often you see one this amusing.  

    When an dumb argument is utterly destroyed by the facts, the excuse is "....ughhhh, that's just one year...."

    Use as many accounts as you want marco -- you still get no respect here.  

    Back to the kids table.  See ya.  Call your lawyer...

     if I recall correctly he also had a chronic condition.

     


    ............which caused him to be injury prone ?

    Jared Knight has Type 1 diabetes, also known as juvenile diabetes.  It does not make you injury prone, it just requires close attention to diet, nutrition, and insulin levels.  

    Know who else has it?  Max Domi.  He just got drafted in the 1st round.  Bobby Clark had it.  Jay Cutler has it.  It doesn't impede the career of a professional athlete and it certainly does not make someone "injury prone".

    Another marco argument destroyed by the facts...

    Do a little research.

    I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop.  Things like this usually have more than one contributing factor to it.  I'm sure it wasn't just about draft picks.

    are u kidding me ? who cares about the memorial cups. No league  produces players in the Nhl like the OH

    Wow.

    Ok how about I phrase this more imperically by looking at the projected roster for next year.

    Of the 12 projected forwards - 3 OHL (Kelly, Paille, Thornton) 3 WHL (Campbell, Iginla, Lucic) 3 QMJHL (Bergeron, Marchand, Caron) 3 European (Soderberg, Krejci, Eriksson). The 13th is a crap shoot completely and could come from a number of leagues.

    Of the 7 projected D 2 OHL (McQuaid, Hamilton) 1 WHL (McQuaid) 2 European (Chara, Seidenberg) 2 NCAA (Krug, Bartkowski) Marrow is another possibility and he's WHL.

    Of the 3 possible goalies 2 European (Rask, Svedberg) 1 Q (Johnson)

    5 players, and only one potential star in Hamilton, from the OHL.

    Tell me again how dominant the OHL is?

    Why was Wayne Smith fired?

    Maybe he was out on a bender the day before the draft and turned up at the Prudential Center in the same clothes.

    "Great players come from provinces like Quebec, Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. However, there is also little doubt that the best players in the game are from Ontario."

    A very stupid question to ask anyone. Who knows this ? Not me. Maybe you can switch over to bruins8 and he can give the correct answer ?

    Re: Bruins Fire Head of Scouting

    NHL's 20 leading scorers last year included

    4 NCAA trained players (St. Louis, Kunitz, Kessel, Toews)

    5 European trained players (Ovechkin, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Backstrom, Sedin)

    4 QMJHL trained players (Crosby, Ribiero, Giroux, Voracek)

    2 WHL trained players (Getzlaf, Ladd)

    and 5 OHL trained players (Stamkos, Kane, Staal, Hall, Tavares)

     

    For simplicity's sake - top 15 D by points last year.

    2 OHL (Subban, Campbell)

    1 QMJHL (Letang)

    1 US HS (Yandle)

    2 NCAA (Suter, J. Schultz)

    4 Europe (Markov, Kronwall, Timmonen, Streit)

    4 WHL (Franson, Weber, Phaneuf, Byfuglien)

    and to round out the list, 1/2 points for Duncan Keith to both the W and NCAA.

     

     Top 15 goalies by Ws (landslide's a'comin'):

    7 from Europe (Lundqvist, Niemi, Backstrom, Nabokov, Bobrovsky, Rask, Bryzgalov)

    2 NCAA (Quick, Howard)

    3 WHL (Price, Reimer, Holtby)

    3 QMJHL (Fleury, Pavelec, Crawford)

    0 OHL (top OHL-trained goalie last year was probably Craig Anderson from Guelph).

     

    So if you look at the top end of the league by most recent performance,

    16/50 from Europe's systems

    9.5/50 from the NCAA + US HS

    9.5/50 from the Dub

    8/50 from the Q'

    7/50 from the OHL.

     

    The limitations of this are obvious - lot's of invaluable, top end players not in those counts, and it puts all of the emphasis on one stat in each case.  But it should tell you one thing: it is by no means possible to say that, without a shadow of a doubt, the OHL is superior in terms of the talent it sends to the NHL.  The O may send more third-liners, more grinders and pluggers, but is that what this is about?

    OHL is a great league to watch - good hockey most nights.  As a development league, it does its job most of the time helping good players get better (Hi, I'm Anthony Camara...).  No knock on the OHL from me.  But it is what it is: a league in business for itself.  They mostly do right by these kids they get at 16 (or 15), but whether the kid becomes a top 10% NHLer is up to the kid, not the league.

     

    Are you not entertained?!?!

    Chow. comment on 49's post on Knight. Maybe now you can understand where the talk of  knight injuries came from.

     



    I have been following Knight since he was 16. He has played the majority of his games up until last year. I need no talk from any another poster to understand how any of his injuries occurred. 

    They were due to playing hockey just like any other hockey player who has had on ice injuries.

    Put your resume into the Bruins for Wayne Smith's job. They need a man with your qualities of judgement, intuition and experience.

    What don't you get about this being a stupid question ?

    Use your expert judgement, intuition and experience and tell me the right answers for each.
