The almighty "apparently" gets me off the hook for this one, but I should have done a little more homework before posting it.

Awesome news if he's going to the knights.Good for him if he can play in the memorial cup in a stacked team....with Dale as a coach!

I sure hope it's gonna be London too! Hoping that Timmins & Bergevin have convinced him.

His skating is good and he has a lot of weight, that's usualy the two arguments to bring a guy the college way, he doesn't need it, let him play 72 games + Playoffs + Memorial cup, i'm pretty sure that will be more beneficial than a year or two in college. We all want him to be an intimidating force, the Knights are the perfect place for him to develop that.

Was a bit of a skeptic about him going to London due to ice-time doubts, but since he's a project I guess he'll have plenty of time to work his way into the top 6. And of course London has a great winning culture so that helps too.

Well I hope he choose London....He needs to play in the OHL so he can become a good NHL player. The type of game he wants to play, he will only learn in the OHL.

I can see McCarron rounding out the Horvat-Domi combination. I doubt he plays anything lower than 2nd line.

Top 6? He'll be top three more than likely.

Correct me if Im wrong, but I was under the impression that Horvat and Domi normally play on separate lines. They are used together when they need offence.

Dale Hunter changes his lines up more than his underwear. I can pretty much guarantee Habs fans though that McCarron will most definately be considered a top 6 forward for the Knights should he report, as well as a fixture on the PP. Hopefully parked right in front of the opposing goalie, something the Knights PP desperately needs.

If he goes to London, confirmed that is, how can I watch the games on the net? Look at their roster and then add him... It is going to be great!

There are websites like these ones but I'm not sure if they do show a lot of CHL games:
http://atdhe.eu/
http://firstrow1.eu/sport/ice-hockey.html
http://www.streamhunter.eu/
http://www.sportlemon.tv/

For my part, I'll try http://www6.hockeystreams.com/ for a week when the 2013-2014 season will start. It's only 12,99$ for a week and they show AHL, OHL, WHL, QHJML & of course NHL games. If I like it, I might buy a longer "pass".

I had a season pass this past year and the positives about that site is they have games from EVERY league CHL, AHL, NHL, KHL... but a negative is that for CHL, most of the time the quality of the feed is pretty bad (not HD). Every once in a while when sportsnet plays a CHL game then you can get it in HD. but other wise expect poor-ish quality.

I can live with a poor picture but not a crappy feed that lags. What do you think?

Oh in that case then HS is good, it doesn't lag or anything; and the feed isn't crappy per-se. It's just that if you are used to HD feeds it'll take some getting used to.
But their NHL feeds are all HD; its money well spent. Much cheaper than buying those sports packages.

Thanks for your time! I'll give a month a try then go from there.

Thanks again!

Another advantage to going the CHL route is being able to experience an NHL training camp right away. Maybe even play in a pre-season game or two...
