Regardless, thread is about this year.
Drafting of 18/19 year olds into the NHL is dicey enough let alone 15/16 year olds into the OHL and moving away from home for the first time.
Usually teams who constantly draft high for a reason and it's usually the inability to develop talent. For me, most of the blame should be on management and not the kids. (the first 3 on that list were drafted by the Icedogs)
