Imagine that

Or lets actually talk to the kid 1-1 before we go online and talk about what type of person he is? Or even speculate about the type of person he is (which is just as bad imo). I'm surprised people don't give 15 year old kids the benefit of the doubt, but then again, sometimes I'm not.

Thanks for all the posters this year and good luck to those who are eligible this year.

exactly.

or else you get the sentiment you see here that the teams are just "blind" to the extreme brilliance of the player and are making a horrible mistake by not taking him.

It wouldn't really be a mock draft when you pick one a day before the draft. It's kind of known where kids are going thru the top 5 anyway.

Good luck to all the 97's and for those who don't get selected, the road doesn't end there!

Day not going first, is not about the kid and his supposed issues, but more about the "behind the scenes politics and antics" , by the top 3 teams and their associates.

1) Ottawa- Konecny
2) Erie- Strome
3) Petes- Spencer
4) Missy- DAY
5) Kingston- Crouse
6) Niagara- Mackenzie
7) Sudbury- Korostolev
8) Sarnia- Stephens
9) Saginaw- Capobianco
10) Brampton- McCool
11) SSM- Speers
12) Guelph- Kries
13) Kitchener- Greenway or Davies
14) Oshawa- Henley
15) Barrie- MacArthur or Gerhart
16) Plymouth- Greenway or other American
17) Owen Sound- Marner or Lizotte
18) Belleville- Szypula
19) London- Marner or American

That's all I got.

Good luck everybody tomorrow.

About a week ago i would agree with you but now i say the bulls pick a defenceman first Lizotte or Schlichting? Just a thought, but Szypula would make me happy too.

i'm being lazy and copy/pasting my post from the prospects board:

Sean Day ‏@SeanDay66 3m
At the Real Sports Bar in downtown Toronto... This place is packed. I'm just trying to get a bite to eat! #Crowded

^^ sounds like Mississauga is choosing him if he's in downtown T.O. this late at night?

im a up and coming fan of the ohl so slowly seeing how OHL works and all.. did someone lose a 1st round pick or something as there are 19 picks in the 1st round but 20 teams in the league.. apparently shows all rounds only as 19 picks

Windsor does not have a pick in the 1st round. They were given a pretty severe penalty after an investigation found them to have inappropriate dealings with former players. No details were given, other than the penalties handed down.

Wow, that's a small kid. But London has never had an problem selecting whoever they think is the best player available, regardless of size or reporting issues. As a Knights fan, I'm excited.

Knights select Zack Werenski with their 2nd pick.

Petes steal Lizotte. Scouts quickly forgot how well Lizzy handled McDavid at prospects game. Could be the jewel of the draft.

Are there reporting concerns for Werenski? I don't follow OHL prospects that closely but reading about him now he was ranked higher than Konecny in some mid-season lists.

Was under the impression Werenski was inked by USND.
