If we look at the U15 teams where they went head to head, NS beat NB in the final because they were deeper, on all four lines not because their star players out performed the NB ones.

Welsh is a very good NS Dman that would be on par with everyone but Deschenes and they have a couple of other good ones also. The margin between the top 5 - 6 forwards and 4-5 dmen between each province is interchangeable to me.
i agree with you...Parsons IMO is better than any NB forward but after that, JM Leblanc to me is better than any of the other NS forwards, Tower would be better but size is going to prevent that at next levels...Hamer is not as good as Leblanc or Tompkins IMO it is a good mix...NS has more depth than NB but the high end talent is up there.
