Not happy about it, and its not like I was the only one who said it, I just said it online. Others said the same thing the next September. Id love to see the Wolves do well, just seem to care more about pleasing the locals vs. drafting the best players. Over 50 percent of the players in the 2010 Draft came from Ottawa, Sudbury or Thunder Bay. I remember sitting in our war room and we couldn't belive the amount of players they selected who where locals, most if not all unrated by us.
I think my quote was 'drafting for the press release'. It's been an issue for Sudbury in the past. I respect that they want to draft local, but it hurts the development of the franchise.
Fans get excited when they see local players drafted, but at the end of the day, it can really hurt if they are not the BEST players available.
