    How would you compare scoring a PPG in the OHL, a PPG in the WHL or 2PPG in the QMJHL?

    What would be a bigger feat for a prospect?

    Now, or when? It changes all the time.

    In the late 80s/early 90s, the WHL was the highest-scoring league. For most of the 1990s, especially from about 96-03 or so, the QMJHL was easily the highest-scoring league. Scoring in the Q has really dropped off in the last couple seasons, to the point where the OHL seems to have surpassed it (I don't have the numbers, that's just an observation). The WHL is by far the lowest-scoring league.

    Of those three options, scoring a PPG in the OHL is right now by far the least impressive. 2 PPG in the Q is probably the most impressive, although scoring at a PPG clip in the WHL right now is damn difficult. 1 draft-eligible guy is managing it right now, and only 1 other guy is even close.

    I'd say 1 OHL PPG = 1 Q PPG = .8 WHL PPG
     
  4. Over the last few years, the WHL's goal totals have been the lowest of the three leagues.

    But it is really difficult to compare the OHL/QMJHL/WHL.

    The OHL has a higher PPG than the Q this year but about 6-7 years ago the Q was much more higher scoring.

    If you want numbers id afgree with what another poster said:

    1ppg OHL = 1ppg QMJHL = 0.80 ppg WHL

    More or less.

    Another thing to consider for this season is that the OHL and QMJHL have adopted the NHL's new standard of officiating and the WHL has not, or at least that's what Brent Sutter said the other night on TV.
    Anyway, scoring is up in the QMJHL this year almost 1 goal per game over last year.

    My opinion after watching alot of games online this season is that all 3 leagues are very close in skill. I couldnt really say one is better then the other but I think there is one major difference in the leagues.

    It just seems to me that in the OHL and QMJHL teams seem to "load" up for runs at the championship. I think teams trade for top players giving up prospects and draft picks and this seems to create an imbalance at the top of the league so you will have a few teams who score a tremedous amount of times against weaker teams rebuilding. This doesnt seem to happen as much if at all in the WHL. I cant remember when one team dumped several players for picks and prospects as WHL teams are loath to trade away any high draft picks.

    Correct me if im wrong but thats how I see it

    i dont see how these leagues are close in skill, all the big name are in the OHL and Q while the WHL has almost no big name prospects or many middle ranged guys for that matter...

    Have you looked at the rosters for Canada's World Junior team this year? or how about last year? or the year before that?

    PPG = Points Per Game not Power Play Goals
