Before they were stars.......

What current NHL players impressed you the most at a lower level?

What convinced you they'd be stars?

For me:

Brett Hull -- Saw him in the AHL with Moncton. He played the point on the power play, had great presence and "that" shot.

Gary Roberts -- Also in Moncton. Great passer at the AHL level and possessed more hockey sense than anyone on the ice.

Paul Kariya -- During his UMaine days. A blur. The most highly skilled finesse player that I"ve seen in person. (This side of Ray Bourque.)

Keith Tkachuk -- Playing at Boston University. Tony Amonte and Shawn McEachern put up bigger stats, but Tkachuk was a 18 year old linebacker with far greater offensive skills than I imagined.
