1996-born OHL forwards: Best group since...

The 1996-born group of OHL forwards has guys like Dal Colle, Bennett, Perlini, McCann, Cornel, Clarke, Ho-Sang and Watson just to name a few. These guys could all go in the first round in June. When was the last time the OHL had so many talented guys born in one year? I can think of the 1992-born group which had guys like Seguin, Skinner, Watson, McFarland, Knight, Spooner, McKegg, Smith-Pelly, etc but it looks like 1996 could be better. When was the last time we saw an OHL forward class as talented as this one?

What about the 90 born group? Stamkos/Tavares/Hodgson/Kadri/Henrique They also had good D like Del Zotto, PIetrangelo, Bogosian.

We don't know how many of these 96 borns won't pan out though, I'm sure a few won't.

The '90 group was pretty good too. They were more top heavy and not as deep though. I think this '96 group is potentially deeper. I suppose I should rephrase my question as "Best group in their draft year since..." Obviously a lot of those '92s haven't really panned out as expected either but they were highly regarded in their draft years.

Hodgson was a great Junior player, and is a very solid NHLer, hence why he was drafted so high.
