Pretty hard for me to figure out how a guy plays in the minors until 23 and still gets to be number 7 overall on this list here?
The circumstances for doug harvey was much different. He was playing in a 6 team league, not 30. He was also playing for the hab's farm team I believe, so only they could take him, its not like he could go and try out for the other teams. Doug Harvey`s first 10 seasons are nothing to laugh at, by the time he was 30 he had four 1st team all stars, yeah hes not exactly a martin st. louis type of late bloomer.

Same thing with johnny bower, the rangers gm decided to take gump worsley instead and bower couldn't sign with the other teams.
