If all it took was a Chris Pronger or Wayne Gretzky to teach these draft picks skills, why aren't they all in the NHL? I'm sure that every owner in the world would pay top coin for that
Well then I guess a player predicted to go in the first round of what is supposed to be a very deep draft can't learn either.
