I think his name was Scott Campbell. Big tough D man with some offense who the Blues drafted with their # 1 pick. He signed with the WHA. The Blues were able to get him after a few years but he suffered from migraines and I don't think he palyed 5 games for the Blues if any. Big dissapointment. Suppose to be a Rob Rammage type. His problems were due to health but a different kind of bust. Those two come to mind.
Picking Carr with that #4 overall pick was a disaster. How could he be a FAVOURITE Blues' prospect that didn't work out. He should be one of the LEAST favourites!
