His best season in the Q. 50 goals 50 assists and 339 pim.
For the player who never touched the NHL, I choose Rick Corriveau who had 4 seasons in the OHL of over 60 points as a defenseman and 2 seasons over 80 points. ECHL is the best he ever made. Good size. Blues 2nd round pick who reentered the draft to be an 8th round pick of the Caps.
I have a couple: Petr Sejna. The Hobey Baker winner that most had high hopes for. Great beginning of his carear, then......
Zakharov and Hemmingway are two guys that we all had high hopes for. Hemmingway couldn't make it out of the ECHL and Zakharov came out of Jr. early after a fantastic WJC, where he out played AK47, and left for his homeland after 2 months in the AHL.
Of those, Zakharov was the one that many of the posters on hear had to eat a lot of crow over. We set him up as a top 6 guy and he didn't live up to it.
