Rookies can't automatically adjust to the OHL 2 months into the season playing a limited role. Not everyone can be McDavid. In order to thrive a player needs opportunities. Stats are not everything, they are useless when projecting a player's NHL potential and that's the ultimate goal for these kids. People don't understand how significant the jump is from minor midget to the OHL. I've seen kids score 50-60+ goals in MM and not be able to crack 10 in the OHL. These teams watch video, they know certain players tendencies and systems. You have to take everything into account. I'd like to see this thread after the NHL draft to see how much it changes.
