The way its being bandied about it looks like Logan Couture and Zac Torquato will likely go one and two in the OHL draft. My guess is Torquato 1st to Saginaw and Couture second to Oshawa.
This seems like a talented, but thin draft class since a number of American prospects are likely to stick with the USA NTDP or possibly play US hockey till their NCAA scholarships kick in (Tristan Llewellyn, Ryan Schnell, Nick Petrecki, Ian Cole, Matt Rust, Matt Thurber, Kirk Shattenkirk, James Van Riemswyk) ,but there is still hope.
Bryan Cameron, Wilson Ngai and Sam Gagner from the Marlies, should likely go in the first round.
The GTHL has a strong class, the OMHA has a solid class, the Alliance has a solid class and the ODMHA is fairly week this year.
OHL scouting reps have indicated it's a strong year for Northern Ontario. They have a good crop, but it just doesn't sound like a deep year compared to the past couple for that region.
