Ares this is for you since you think I don't have any data to back up my opinion. Starting today and others that I have the time since Tigers believes the 3rd-4th-5th round is where a scout like Hunter makes his mark. I am of the opposite belief that the talent isn't really there so this is the first of three examinations of the 08-09-10 OHL drafts. It's not fair to judge 2011 and 2012. I broke down every pick by every team in 08 from 3rd to 5th round which is 60 player. Forgive the formatting. I decided to choose a rough number of 150 GP which is the equivalent of 2+ OHL seasons so that gives them their 17,18,19,20 year old season, some 16 year olds won't play early on due to later pick late bloomers etc.

After 60 picks in 08
16 players played over 150 which is a 23% success rate which is about 1 every 4 or 5 picks. Include Tinordi as well who is the exception coming over when he was 18, so 17. After breaking it down 16-17 players to reach 150 games doesn't even cover 1 player per team. The demand for players is always high but the supply isn't very high.

Most successful team was Owen Sound as far as GP

Tigers want to know why I don't get that upset at other GMs because look no further to this year very little production from the 3rd, 4th and 5th which is the conclusion of the top 100. You will have others that fall through the cracks but if only 14-15 players out of 60 hit how can you accuse other GMs of not doing their job when the talent just isn't there?
