Other than that a good read.
That list was just meant to cover safe prospects, which are the majority of the top OHL guys for this year. Nurse is still very raw. The times I've seen him, he's had too many moments of poor discipline and overaggressiveness in his own zone for me to say he's anywhere near a sure thing. Not saying I wouldn't pick him in the top-10, just that he didn't really fit what I was going for there. Dickinson and Domi are two other examples of guys with upside without strong two-way ability right now.
I did a write up on Nurse here in November btw:
Have seen him a couple times since and my thoughts haven't really changed.
And thank you
