Look at the names he was picked ahead of the the Canada Cup.

A high price? What first rounder did they trade to get him? They traded Poddubny, who was the epitome of a one-dimensional player. He was a center who didnt check, didnt win faceoffs, didnt score in the clutch.

Trading Poddubny was so crushing to the Rangers, they went on to win their first division in 50 years a year after the trade. Man, they really missed him!
Poddubny was fine while he was here. He played on the Espo teams which were all pretty awful. At least he was one of a few guys who could score.

Rochefort stepped it up in the 90 playoffs when Leetch was hurt.
