I'm not so cynical that I didn't think it was great that Duchene went to Colorado, or Geoffrion to Nashville, or Samuelsson to Phoenix. These are semi unique situations. Amazing, top flight hockey players, who play a highly coveted position that hail from the greater Toronto area exist in the top half of every draft.
I find this argument fair enough. I just felt as though my statement was being slighted without any real substance or argument. There are many great players to come out of the GTA, players that every team would love to have.
