last hit from the WHL was in 1997

Percentage of selections from WHL = 30.6%
Number of consecutive years without making a pick from the OHL (pre hodgson) = 4
Record number of picks from the WHL in one year = 6
league with the lowest % hit rate (excluding too early to tell) since 1996 = WHL
names of the 7 actual "hits" from the WHL since 1994: Nash, Scatchard, Scheafer, Sopel, McCallister, Holden and Ference
Number of first and second round picks in the WHL since 1994 = 8
Number of players selected from the WHL since 1994 still playing in the NHL = 2
Number of players selected from the WHL playing for the Canucks = 0


Damning evidence if you ask me.
