Since I watched them all this season a lot my list is a little different.

Sproul is not ahead of Tinordi or Harrington, not a chance. London turned him into puddy on a few occasions in games this year making him look very ordinary. Not many can say they do that to London's pair.

And where is Ollie Maatta, he may turn out better than them all on here and is having a great year.

The article lost me entirely when they referred (not just once but twice) to Ryan Murphy being on Canadas WJHC team.
Article needs serious editing!!

If this article is based on this year alone, Murphy should be nowhere near the top 5. If it's based on his entire OHL career, then okay.

Pedan, really? The only way he makes a top 10 list is if there are only 10 drafted defensemen in the OHL.

i realize that he's not top 10 material but i love the way the bulls Brady Austin has improved thru out the year and is showing his offensive side in the playoffs. When he uses his 6"4 230lbs frame there isnt too many that can man-handle him. Brady skates exceptionally well for a big man. The only knock i have on him is that i wished he get meaner.

Ya i always liked him in Erie, not top 10 like you said but a solid player. Looking back at the trade you guys definitely won in that deal. We got all one win out of Tyson who has continued to struggle for London now.

I love the fact that DeMelo is getting reconized, pretty much a top 20 ohl dman

But what about Percy? Personally id have him higher than DeMelo, Pedan and Melchiori

I think Matta is deserving to be on the list as well, no higher than 8 or 9 though.

Connor Murphy is a forward so not sure why he is mentioned here? Also rumor has it e is heading NCAA route, possible Ivey league school. Good choice as he is a good student and with his size NCAA is a better option.

I believe the Connor Murphy being discussed currently plays for Sarnia Sting and was a first round pick of Phoenix in 2011.
