I have to think about it...
Yeah, same here. I have a friend who grew up with and new many quality players. He's at least met most of the current crop of emerging Vancouver area NHLers like Alzner, Turris, Nugent-Hopkins et al. But for me, I never knew anyone before they were famous, so, there's no personal connection. That said, being 30, most of my favourite are around my age. So, I guess I could say Alex Edler and LaMarcus Aldridge, although both are younger than me.
