Guys on the bubble like Strome, Hamilton, Schiefele and to a lesser degree Murphy and Faksa, Laughton (whom have been confirmed to be attending their teams camps) make things interesting for their respective teams.
In Kitchener it is assumed Murphy and Faksa will be returned. I imagine the same for Laughton in Oshawa, but it certainly makes those teams hold their breath.
As for Barrie and Schiefele, its tough because they could add and make a good run, but do they do it without knowing that their center piece on the team may not be back?
Niagara has is even worse with both Hamilton and Strome. Both players would have brought a fortune, but who will trade for them and make a run, all the while passing on other players who are certain to remain in the OHL? So not only does it hurt Niagara in terms of tending to their own agenda, but teams who may have been inquiring no longer will because what good does going for it do you if the horses you add dont show up for the race?
I dont believe we will see Barrie or Niagara deal these players, or make an significant moves simply because how can they without throwing a dart at the board with a blindfold on?
