Joe Thornton, Logan Couture and Brian Campbell among others are all guys who played Jr. B as 15 year olds. So they were too young to play major junior and in Southwestern Ontario there is no Jr. A, so Jr. B is practically Jr. A around here. So a lot of the times it's just there aren't local Jr. A options. I assume almost everybody in this thread went onto play major junior or NCAA and were only playing Jr. B in their younger days.
