Good, hopefully so! Think a team like Red Deer wouldn't have drafted Ryan Nugent-Hopkins if they knew he was this good? You take what you get out of these kids in junior and when they graduate and move on to the next level (like last year when they lost Martin Jones, Brandon Kozun, Joel Broda, Tyler Shattock, Ian Schultz and Michael Stone) you're proud that they were able to develop into superior hockey players.
That's the cycle of junior hockey, you get to watch these kids for anywhere from a season to 5 years, all the time getting to see them go from 150-pound-nothings to pro-ready players.
