You are right that alot of emphasis is placed on major junior experience by many posters, maybe too much so, myself included. In the OUA in particular, getting former Jr.A high scorers can certainly be an asset, as sometimes they have the ability to make plays that former CHL grinders cannot, or may be more well rounded than equally skilled CHL counterparts.
It is important, but its not an overly big deal, to the point where it means nothing because everyone is talented at this level throughout all 35 teams. Are you ready for tomorrow night though? Tough loss for the Hawks tonight. We are doing webcasting now so you can watch the game.
