SO WHAT IF MISTAKES ARE MADE, who cares. If no mistakes were made then the kids could just pack it in after their draft as the die would be cast. The WHL teams should be left to run THEIR business as they see fit.
The only advantage for the WHL with this draft age group is that the teams can lock up players a year earlier and eliminating their NCAA status if a kid plays or signs with a team. Why wouldn't a team want to know more about a kid a year older and have him play immediately if good enough?
