BMO and the Canadian Hockey League

BMO Financial Group was named the Official Bank of the Canadian Hockey League in 2011. The four-year agreement also designates BMO as the Official Bank of each of the CHL's member hockey leagues: the Ontario Hockey League, the Western Hockey League, and the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The sponsorship builds on BMO's partnership with the CHL of more than 10 years and affirms BMO's exclusivity as a financial services sponsor of the league in the retail banking category. It also engrains a presence with the 48 teams who currently participate in the BMO CHL Affinity MasterCard program, which enables CHL fans to support their favourite teams through a co-branded BMO/CHL credit card.

I don't know how they choose the teams, but I can list 10 guys that could be first rounders on Team Orr and only about 6 on team Cherry.

Mitchell Stephens

Dennis Yan

Graham Knott

What's up with these guys being top prospects?

Well it only includes CHL prospects, who would you replace with them? Speers is probably up there but otherwise I think it's pretty fair.

That forward group for Team Orr, though...

I like how they're all on Team Cherry, as well. Someone doesn't want Cherry to win.

Also, how any of those guys are ahead of Blake Speers is beyond me.
