Just another oddity. For all of Drew mouthing off about the Saskatchewan mafia, Richards, Shaw and Woodcroft are all US, not Canadian. Very interesting.
Since you mentioned this...

We always hear the "PR" number of the players who Roy Sommer has sent to the NHL. Does anyone know how that number ranks against other NHL teams with players making the NHL after playing in their organization over the same amount of time Sommer has coached SJ's AHL prospects? And if you eliminate player that have played in the NHL less than one full season what those numbers look like?

SJ's mantra for years has been "draft and develop" has to ask has that really worked when your announced number of players going through your system to the NHL includes players like:
Riley Armstrong (2 games)
Sean Gauthier (1)
Mike Iggulden (1 with SJ, 11 with NYI)
Lukas Kaspar (16)
Ryan Kraft (7)
Mike Moore (6)
Dmitri Patzold (3)
Nolan Schaefer (7)
Ryan Vesce (19)
Chad Wiseman (4 with SJ, 5 with NYR)
Steven Zalewski (3 with SJ, 7 with NJ)

So it would be interesting to see how the numbers compare to other organizations...
