sorry for all the questions! after 14 years of following the ahl, gotta get used to the way junior works!

:devil:
Esposito will not be picked 1st without a 100% guarantee that he'll report.

And St. John's will have the 2nd overall Euro pick, Saint John will have the 5th pick. The 3 CHL leagues rotate every year and this year it goes OHL, QMJHL, WHL. But draft position is not as big a deal in the Euro draft since it's not a real draft where you pick the best player available. Teams go into it with pre-arranged deals with players and pick the best player that they've agreed with to report.
