i'm interested in the 'race to the bottom' of this year's ohl draft. if the 67s are the worst team and pick #1 overall i'm very confident the kid will report. if the petes end up as the worst team they're going to either do what baie comeau did and draft #1 and trade for the rebuild (which would actually be smart for the petes) or have to go way down the list looking for someone who will report
I actually follow the OHL draft the most out of the 3 leagues, so take this with a grain of salt. But yea, Im sure they do take it seriously, I can't see a reason why they wouldn't, it partially determines their future.
