Was rated AA by OHL CS but seems to let in some easy goals when his team needs him. Big big kid. Can't knock that. Semaio has been good. Very small but gets around the net and make key saves. Can play bog games. McGlynn has been very good for Oakville. Could be one of the most athletic tenders in the group. Incredible foot speed and positionally sound.

I can't come up a first goalie pick. Wide open right now. If we default to size Tampano or Helvig may get the pick. Anyone have a guess
From what i've seen i think this is a draft for smaller goalies. The draft is fairly deep with a dozen or so that could eventually play in the o. there is some bigger goalies out there as mentioned but lack of mobility and consistanticy really shows with these tendys. I don't believe a goalie will go first two rounds as they all seem to need more development and growth. last year you had herbst and moran that could fit right in. I tend to watch more of the omha heres a few i seem to like semaio, menary, mcglyn, schoeman.
