I'm no scout but IF Mackinnon, Shea and Erne all report this may well end up being the best draft since Courtier and Gormley went 1-2 and they both ended up being NHL 1st rounders.
Lots to be excited about for the upcoming season
I think its great that the Q is doing everything that it can to bring more awareness to the US. The Q is a real option for New England players and that they can get an education as well afterwards. I heard as well that they are going to be doing camps and showcases in the US to generate more interest and knowledge into the Q as a league. Plus now that each team has to draft 2 US players it may help in the recruitment of players.
Worst case scenario for a kid coming from the USA to play in the Q is they don't get draft/make camp and they go to UNB, St. Mary's, or w/e and get a good education while playing for a top CIS team. I don't buy all the "NCAA route is better because it guarantees them an education" when most players dropout for the pros after 2 years or so.
