Then a team would go and draft him (Max Domi in the OHL type situation). Teams don't waste a top 5 round pick on a guy if they didn't get some sort feeling the player would report. If Duclair or Gauthier even hinted to a specific team that they might come over, it would be worth the later pick to get their rights just in case.

If De Luca told every single team, behind closed doors, that he wasn't going to report, why would anyone take him?
Very good point...

Gauthier played Estherblondin this year... though..

so essentially duclair, pulled a pierre durepos..

still though weird that deluca wasnt, why not take a flyer ? matheson also did the same.. but got taken by moncton.. thats why ita weird.
