I think all of my inclusion fall under that category.

Re : "The only way to really compare it is how players were rated in the past."

I disagree. A player can be the best in his class but if his class stinks, it means nothing compared to other years.

Re : "It's tough to judge the current crop of Canadian players to see if there is really a lull, rather than one off year."

I don't feel it is a one year off. Canada has had 3 weak years. It also had 3 weak years from 1999 - 2001.

I feel if you compare the years 2003 - 2005, 2006 - 2009, 2010 - 2012 in a few years you will see the latter is by far the weakest class.

Well we can only judge in several years then. My point about you can only judge based on coming into the draft from each year is that you don't know how this crop or last year 2011 is a good or bad crop.

I mean when the 2007 draft was taken today, would you project the #43 pick to be the best Canadian drafted?
