granted NY isnt really a hockey hotbed....but he was the best player as a youngster by far within a 3 year radius...and he wont crack the NHL.


everyone you see in the league is an amazing player.
Really? Several of my high school friends who played AA and AAA have played with John Tavares and if I remember correctly Sam Gagner as well. My uncle played with Nik Kypreos when he was a kid. He was on Kypreos' line the whole season. He ended up scoring two goals (one was a tap in from the goal line ), Kypreos scored over 40.

And to answer the OP's question: Think of that thread on the main board not too long ago: "The Most Useless Player In The NHL." Players mentioned included Georges Laraque, Rikard Wallin, David Koci, Riley Cote, among others. They all could pretty much school everyone of us.
