Here is a better idea! Why not just fix the draft - change the rules so it's fair for everyone? This whole cat and mouse game is growing old fast! Why does my draft strategy have to revolve around blocking the London Knights every year?

A player tells 19 teams he is not coming, so he can get drafted by the one and only team he was willing to play for is CHEATING!

19 owners have a voice to change things too... Branch's preference is to have the talent in the league - even if it's clustered in one or two teams.

Exactly! So why have the other 19 league owners not demanded a change to the draft rules? This draft format allows the rich to get richer - and the poor to remain poor! David Branch-Hunter must have the power to block change?

Stranges signs 4 days after he was drafted. The league has no intentions of investing this signing?

“Who Care” the kid gets to play for the team that drafted him. LK took a poop tonne of NCAA commits, you going to whine each time they ‘Uncommit’

Kids want to play for London over US schools and Niagara, get over it.

The higher end teams (of which Niagara can claim membership) have a chance to draft/convince or draft/defect/defer so they profit from the imbalance, though not to the same degree as the highest two or three. With a declaration limiting the surprise signings the star players still won't report to the lower end teams but there is a chance fans will pay to see the newest phenoms. The owners as a whole have to think beyond their own local interests and grow the league. That means leveling the playing field for new markets to give them the opportunity the draft was envisioned for. Cheating hurts everyone except the cheater. If Team X always wins and Team Y can't break the ceiling then Team Y will fail. If brand new Team Z has the same luck trying to replace Team Y, that team fails too and new owners become scarce. If the OHL gets smaller by a few teams, can the schedule be maintained? Does each team have to host more games? Will the fans show up or will it be oversaturated?

As much as Team X likes to win and enjoy the bragging rights, they are ultimately hurting the league and it's time the Board of Governors got behind the product that is the ENTIRE system.

Stinky, that is a very immature and narcissistic attitude - are you and “General Live” the same person ?

The kids have options Blacksox, that’s all that I am saying. Some options are better than others. It’s the kids future, he should be able to decide his future, not you or some board of rich old white men.

I am just glad for these kids to be able to choose who and where they want to play. Some people like a free market, others like a socialist and controlled market. I would like to think that you are providing both philosophies in your classroom and not one over the other.
