Not sure if they threw games ornot but for sure they didnt go out of their way I dont think. I mean Mario had 282 points in 70 games his last year of Junior Hockey so it'd be hard not to throw games. Aftert Mario NJ selected Krik Muller. A good player for sure but no one that would carry a franchise.
I believe that the Ottawa Senators threw games to get Alexandre Daigle in '93. Now we look back on that and we ask why? So at least if Pittsburgh threw games they picked the right player.
