—and note that Grant Clitsome still has a chance to make the list.
The guys not in the league are Fritsche, Zherdev, Andrew Murray, Tollefsen, LeClaire and Brule. Zherdev played . Murray wasn't rushed by Doug...he didn't play until Howson was in charge. I never felt LeClaire was rushed per se. I'd argue Brule might have had a LONGER career if he hadn't been rushed. That leaves Tollefsen and Fritsche. You tell me if they would/wouldn't have played elsewhere in the league. Bot did hang on after their Jackets days were over ever so briefly.
You forgot Lennart Pettrell.
Per Mars should be good. I remember Douggie had great things to say about him back in the day
Truth should never get in the way of a good persecution complex.
