It will become clearer at Silverstick this weekend. Not many teams have 2 top forwards.
Saw last 2 days at Silver Stick and Marlies played well. Supporting cast helping out alot. Stephens and Strome are good players and first rounders, but are a class behind the others in the draft.

London and Elgin impressed incredibly. Oakville is an all star team, but doesnt have any true superstar like Konecny.

To date, best players I have seen are (not including US teams), Konecny, Crouse , Coyle, Fox, Szypula, White, vande Sompel, Henley, Mckenzie, MacArthur, Speers, Villeneuve. Korostolev would be consensus #1 if he were eligible for the OHL draft.
