Nash, Thornton, Kovalchuk, Ovechkin, Lundqvist, Parise, etc


pick whichever one you want, and my argument remains the same. Take them off their roster and does the franchises history change?

Was Parise a franchise player before he got into the league? no. Cherepanov, before he died, was playing at the same pace Jaromir Jagr was over there.
Calling someone a great nhl player who never played in the nhl is beyond ridiculous. Lots of number 1 pics were not franchise players. You can believe what you want and maybe it would have been so or maybe he did not have enough to stick in the nhl. Comparing to Crosby? Really?
