BCHL a second-rate league? It's one of the best Junior A leagues out there next to the USHL. I did a quick look up of that Penticton team, twelve guys on that team either are now playing D-I or are committed to D-I schools. Of course it's a lower level than college hockey, but everything I've read about Fogarty is that he is continuing to progress and improve on his game, despite being on a very good and deep Notre Dame team.
I think these rankings are far too influenced on looking at a player's statsheet, and performances in minor things like development camps. There is no way a guy like Duclair, who regressed in his draft year and has more to prove, should be ranked higher than Fogarty. Same thing with Tambellini.
