Eff the Knights and the Hunters.

I begrudgingly agree. Mark is a brilliant GM and I believe he's the reason for the success of the Knights, far more than Dale. Dale does have the ability of getting a team of superstars to play as a team and keeps them focused, and I'll give him that. Beyond that, I wouldn't call him anywhere near a good coach.

But they are fresh out of Hunters to draft, so they might as well find another family link.

Kitchener runs a good program as well. I was reading that the current head coach in Kitchener gave Jeff Skinner the Mike Richards seal of approval in terms of being a good hockey player. My own experience has been that Kitchener really produces good forwards who are reliable in all three zones.

Richards is pretty much the gold standard in the Deboer-Spott regime in Kitchener, and Spott does hold players up to that standard. It's interesting - I happened upon a prospects video on the Rangers' site yesterday, and that's exactly what Spott had to say about players in Kitchener - we don't have players that that lead the league in scoring very often, but they are solid NHL'ers because of the defensive awareness that is taught and demanded.

really dont know what the big deal is, dont know how anyone can say its a waste of a pick. between the 6th round and later not a big differance from this to undrafted. most guys at that stage are all lumped together.
If he makes it good for him. If not hes like alot of kids if not a majority of the kids at this point of the draft.
