I hope if WR does leave, he rats out other teams on the way out.

I think Barrie gets it though. They've bid every time since joining the league, have a competitive team and the backing of the key components in Barrie.
Barrie is no more competitive next yr then Windsor regardless of where they finish
this year, they lose their best off D-man Oconnor,Sheifele,Camara,Beyers,Neiderberger and probably Theoret
Barrie only 1 goalie back an 18 year old Fontinos,Zack Hall,Athanasiou,Eckblad
4 or 5 other D,4 or 5 forwards,while Windsor all 6 starters on D plus 3 others with
OHL experience,2-3 goalies if u include Pavelka,10 returning forwards with OHL including O/A candidate Giftopoulous,plus the ability to have 1 or 2 O/As depending whether Pavelka is kept or dealt,plus 2 possible Euros in the 1sr rd,1 drafted 10th,the other 30th approx
Barrie"s infrastructure is a concern as well
No doubt London has the best team projected returning,followed by Windsor ,then Barrie
