After bantam age the best usually move on to midget teams so the varsity teams aren't loaded with top end talent. (The V Stands for varsity)

Western Canada is a bit odd. It's all because the WHL drafts players at 14 then they spend a year in midget before they can play WHL hockey full time, so players move all over the place seemingly at random lol I can't much follow it. OHL is so simply because you have the majority of the best players playing in 1 league. Atlantic Canada is a mess but it's pretty simple. Major Midget Leagues = Best midget players for QMJHL draft.
So are these the type of guys likely to be picked for GB in wjc's? Based on the guys playing in NA who have been picked in the past
