Well that is good to know and of he was vindicated later on. As with his big heart and determination he went on to the Tampa Bay Lightning and ripped up the league on his way to a successful NHL career.

You know he had to be sucking pretty bad. Usually top 4 skilled offensive forward draft picks with good size get a half dozen chances with different organizations (hoping he will finally break out) before they get labeled bust and have go off to Europe. Bonsignore went to Tampa where he played 35 games one season, then 23 games the next season in the NHL. Then it was off to the minors and Europe permanently.
