[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Trade the Number 9 pick : I think some people miss the point. I think there is more to fantasy GM stuff then I got it right or I got it wrong. Most of us don't have to time to follow the Bruins, the OHL, the QMJHL, the WHL and international competition. A thread like this amounts to a knowledge share of sorts. It allows myself to get a sense for the value of the #9 pick. I may not have watched a ton of Eberle in Edmonton but I have read several scouting reports. SO now I can draw a line between one person's value on Eberle and the #9 pick. I also follow the other trades which actually happen and I also read a few scouting reports of guys in the 5-11 range. No matter what PC does tomorrow, I'm not callling for his head but I may be scratching mine if it runs directly at odds with the superficial, surface scratching, information which I have gathered. It will never make me a GM but it allows me to enjoy one more aspect of the Bruins a little bit more. Sure it's a little disappointing when 'someone' posts about the 4,893 fantasy trade posts which were wrong, obviously mocking the posters as if they thought they were real at the time, but all in all it is still a very positive experience. Personally at this point I have come to the conclusion that I will most likely be happiest if the B's keep the pick and take one of the guys in the TSN top 12. I particularly like in order Couturier Strome Murphy Zinabadajied Beaulieu Brodin

I take your point, but as BB said there is way too much misinformation.
People way overvalue certain players.
I am guilty as well, and I'm still not convinced about Knight.
I don't get a chance to watch jr very much, most of my opnion is based on stats and what I read. Not watching them play is a big gap.
One thing seems pretty consistent about jr, altho not 100% it seems darn close to it. Their stats should be on an upward trend. Down turns in their stats is a huge red flag. Of course you have to pro-rate things a bit with fewer games played or if they went from minor jr, ushl, college, major jr, and injuries, but all considered if they even flatten or trend down in their jr. career, it's a bad sign.
