Where are the Spits 93's???
Plymouth had a terrific 09 draft Meurs, Mahalak, Noesen, Malysa, MacDonald. They also had a year out of JT Miller. They acquired Crombeen via trade and Rakell and Karlsson were import picks. Whaley was acquired from Windsor as well.
Windsor on the other hand had a decent draft when you consider the names they drafted but very little to show for it. Brassard dealt to Belleville helped win them a Memorial Cup so that helped. Trojanovic dealt when he was 17 for Robertson. Duininck dealt for picks. The best pick was Eric Locke but the frustrating part about that is he got dealt for Carnevale who later got dealt to Sarnia for picks where the Spits drafted Hunter Smith.
Overall the Spits haven't drafted well in general since the 08 draft but keep in mind that draft the guys didn't stick around very long. Fowler was a 1 year kid, Watson only 1.5 years and Campbell 1.5 years. The most they got out of that draft class was Posa.
Drafting has to get a lot better but with the lack of picks in 2013 it will probably take 3-4 more years to get back to decent drafting. Windsor sold their soul for 2 Memorial Cups and this is what you get.
