I would prefer that he goes to the OHL tbh.
Yes, Andy Murray is a good coach and he will work with McCarron to improve his skills no doubt, but so does the Hunter brothers (they did it with Tinordi) and in addition, he will be able to drop the gloves, which he says is an IMPORTANT part of his game. I don't think the Hunter brothers will push McCarron to always fight and to play like an enforcer. I think they will rather work with him in the areas where he wants to improve like they did with Tinordi but they surely won't stop him to play his style of game (agressive, physical and likes to drop the gloves). And that is without saying that his game seems better suited to the OHL than the colleges.
At the end of the day, I just don't want this guy ending up like Komisarek in the NHL, a guy who plays though that gets humiliated in a fight when facing a though customer in the NHL.
