Either way nobody wants to get burned by their first selection not showing up....

I've heard Tucker Hunter rated a little higher and I think it's safe to assume he'll be selected a little higher, just to make sure the Knights end up with him.

Do you have any scouting reports on what kind of players Hunter and Mcrae are?
I'm assuming that McRae's game doesn't resemble the way his father played.
Phil McRae is an offensive forward with good hands and good goal scoring abilities.. His skating is top notch for his age and although not huge he doesn't back away from the traffic areas.

Tucker Hunter is a hard working forward who I do think will get drafted higher than my list may state, but I was pretty much going off what I've seen out of him this year. He has good size, decent speed and competes every shift. He's not even close to being the most talented on his AAA club but he's an integral part of it and that should translate with the right coaching to the OHL level.
