I might have to disagree on the 2nd point about the 2nd round dman will be more productive than the 2nd round forward. I dont see it.
Alot of people say that it is a defence heavy draft, but beyond the top 10 dmen, therre isnt a suitable dman that will have a chance to make their OHL team.
I think you may be able to go 25 deep with just forwards that have a chance to make their OHL team. But only 10 or so dmen that can legitimately make their OHL team.
For this reason, a team that has a chance to pick Day or Spencer should pick them, as they will get a quality forward in the early 2nd round that will make the team.
