i feel bad for him. by some accounts, his behaviour hasn't been what you'd hope for from someone in their draft year seeking to make a good impression...but it also seems like his parents are just exacerbating the problem.

it seems like he's been in a tough situation...and 17 isn't terribly old, so, negative rumours aside, i'll give him the benefit of the doubt. i hope he finds a good place for himself.

as an aside, can anyone more clued in than me think other #1 (or v. highly ranked) CHL draft picks that have suffered this much of a crash?

i follow the OHL...so don't know a tonne about the other leagues...and the draft order from the OHL draft is a bit of a joke b/c the top players all game the system - meaning that the #1 selection frequently isn't the best player in the draft (Catenacci, McFarland, O'Reilly).

when forsberg was picked #1 ... was he actually the best player in that draft...or was he the highest ranked player who agreed to report to the team?
