I wonder how much of an impact McGuire hyping a guy that wasn't actually all that good. 87 points in 70 games in the WHL isn't all that good for a top draft pick, Tyler Ennis had 91 and went 26th, and McGuire was talking about how he was almost as good as Crosby. Then the Montreal media latched on a guy with a french name because, well, that's what they do.
