Ouellet has made it a point to work on his overall game this season. It's what the Wings harped on him about and he's taken his opportunity to do so. We seen what that looked liked at the World Juniors. He's become a much, much better defensive player. Something Sproul still needs to work on if he wants a quicker path to the NHL. Sproul has the better upside but Ouellet is the better player right now. People need to beware of Major Junior Hockey Stats as gospel.
If the same draft was held again, both players are top 15 picks. Sproul maybe higher due to his tremendous upside. One heck of a second round though.
