Well some of the top guys are there.... Bouchard is the top prospect for this years Q draft.
Correct, and Cornell from Upper Canada is a top prospect this year in Ontario, but I think we all can agree that its not a list of the top players in Canada, just a few sprinked in with some good players at the age group.
Random....yes, but not completely random as each of the 13 branches chose only 1 player at each position. For example, why did hockey BC choose Gropp at forward over Virtanen? I'm positive it's out of respect for the highly competitive/results driven nature of the BCMML, take Virtanen off of his team and you handicap them for the entire time he's gone. Both Gropp and Hicketts play for a hockey academy (Okanagan).
