Yeah but I'll be sure to tell it to Brian Bonin, Robb Stauber, Mike Mottau, Scott and Mark Fusco, Jason Krog, Chris Marinucci, David Emma, Lance McDonald, Tom Kurvers, Kip Miller, Tony Hrkac and Bill Watson along with probably another 50 finalists.

As for the others the only star within that group is Kariya and maybe Broten {though I wouldn't have considered him a star}. Drury is a nice 25 goal, 55 point player, Morrison is ideally a solid second line center who happens to benefit from the team he plays on and Leopold is a solid young defenseman but IMO one who isn't quite an elite one and that's assuming his career stays on track.

For what it's worth I often view it as similar to the WJC's in that you often see a lot of names who never won the honor outplaying those who did.
