That's sort of what sets them apart, and I think it's the reason we sometimes see very obscure rankings from them.
For me, the Corbett ranking came out of left field. I've seen Sudbury quite a few times (especially live) in the past couple of years. To be honest, I've never really noticed Corbett, other than for being a fairly sturdy stay at home defenseman. Every team in the league can attest to having a player or two like that who just doesn't generate NHL interest. That said, bravo NHL Central Scouting, you've done your job. DO I agree with the ranking? No, I don't see it. The next time I see Sudbury play will I focus more on Corbett? Absolutely.
Corbett is a very sturdy, no nonsense dman and definitely deserves to be #66 amongst OHL skaters.
