Kids already drafted in OHL get invited to these games for what purpose ? OHL scouts are not watching these games to scout drafted players. They already own them in their system. They are looking for players that slipped through the cracks (free agents). Otherwise their scouting system and procedures would be flawed. Therefore, they should be selecting non-drafted players that worked hard, improved considerably over last year and deserve the opportunity to play.
Instead, they use stats as the basis for entry. Therefore, kids that played on the powerplay vs. PK had the opportunity to pad their stats getting them the invitation. Yes, I know the respective coaches of each team submitted the names. This was based on stats only.
