And Vancouver's only other NHLer from that draft was the immortal Sandy Moger.

Sillinger and Boughner were solid NHLers - at times a top-six forward and top-four defenseman, respectively. Detroit was left with Shawn McCosh instead of Bure; McCosh was their only pick in the first 6 rounds who didn't make a significant NHL impact.
