The one 67s game I attended this season was a 3-2 loss to Owen Sound. All the goals came in the 1st period, there were a couple fights, and I was in the 100s, so it was a good time.

I've also heard rumors that if Day doesn't get taken #1 overall he won't play in the OHL (hey Logan couture I remember you)
and you can't trade 1st round picks in the OHL, correct?

I highly doubt there's a chance that Ottawa doesn't take Day if he gets exceptional status.

Will be cool to watch the 67s for the next 3 years with Day manning the blueline.

It would be a huge mistake IMO. You can't pass on a defenceman like what he's shown...way better than Ekblad at the same age IMO. His skating sets him apart from everyone on the ice.

I have personally never seen him or Konecny play, so I can't judge on talent. But I would agree it would be a mistake just based on having Day for the guaranteed extra year. I'd trust the 67's staff in making the right decision though.

Right, the 67s are going to pick #1 no matter what this year.

It's going to be Konecny, Strome, or Day. Strome is the least likely, and I really think they're struggling to decide between Konecny and Day. Both are very good players.

No, the organization has expressed how much they are in love with Konecny. Some people truly believe they will take him #1.

There is certainly a legitimate chance that Day isn't a 67. I hope he is, though.

Well...I think it would be a huge mistake if they did that. Not that Konecny can't be a great player (haven't ever seen him) but from what I have seen of Day he's going to step in and dominate at the OHL level as early as next year.

Haven't seen Strome at all, but from what I read he could end up better than his brother.

Funny seeing George McPhee at the game last night. He made a special trip to scout Sean Monahan, they must be high on him.

If the OHL says there's a 14-year old that's better than every other 14-year old, every other 15-year old, and many 16-year olds... you take him. Konecny will be a good player, but Sean Day is the logical choice.

Unless they're planning on trading Monahan to get the 2nd overall pick, too? Can't see that happening.

I don't have any educated opinion on either player, but as long as Kilrea is involved and agrees with the decision I will trust in whatever they decide on. It's a pretty important one for the re-build.

Is there a deadline for the league making a decision on his status?

The latest buzz on Twitter seems to be that Day will not be granted Exceptional Player status, largely because neither of the first two teams up plan to take him. Frankly, I think the OHL and Hockey Canada will be relieved, as they don't want kids applying for Exceptional Player status every year. They would prefer this to be an every few years kind of thing...

D'oh. I knew there was a reason why that sounded ridiculous. Thanks.

I can see why they'd do that. If a kid is truly exceptional, then there'd be no doubt about him. So either Konecny's THAT good (in which case, why didn't HE get exceptional status?) or Day just isn't there yet.

I always thought that was the deal, that the player would no doubt go 1st overall..

To me if there is any doubt whatsoever, then he shouldn't get exceptional player.. He can just wait like everyone else..

It seems like there is a case every year for one of these... Which definitely should not be the case..

How many of these have been given out? I know JT, Ekblad and McDavid. Are there others?

I'd like to hear who you think the 67s will take (or why they wouldn't take day), as I trust your opinion on the OHL more than any other poster on HFBoards. For those that don't know Tigers, this guy knows his ****.
I think my post of a few weeks ago makes more sense now

That has nothing to do with it. Just some people speculating without actually understanding the rule. Hockey Canada makes the call, not the OHL, and Hockey Canada has no idea who the 67's are looking to take, nor do they care.

There has been three approved exceptional status rulings in 7 years. Id ask, if you feel it happens too often, then which one was wrong?

It may FEEL like there has been alot of TALK, however when you look at it, they haven't got one wrong.

Looks like the 67s 'picked' a good year to suck.

Thanks Tigers I really was having a hard time believing it.

Just to let everyone know, the OHL Cup is a really good tournament to see the stars of tomorrow, and it's always held at the Hershey Centre. This was the first year in 5 years that I was not in attendance, but Konecny was 2nd in the tournament in scoring, with 11 points in 5 games.

Dylan Strome had 9 points in 7 games. Someone close to me who coaches Minor Midget AAA and has seen Konecny play this year is really really high on him as well, if it's any consolation. I would not be mad to see the 67s take Konecny.

He's a very skilled player, but he has somewhat "grit" to him that most smaller scoring forwards don't have.

Monahan really spring boarded himself into the mix with his OHL cup performance IIRC. Makes sense that Ottawa is so interested in Konecny but It'd be hard to pass on an exceptional status D. That's a guy you can literally build around.

I'm still really worried about the team losing Monahan next year to the NHL.
