Wow! This is actually crazy , I never thought about that particular fact and I admit I had to verify it to believe it , but you're right.Many canadian wingers since then have been good or even great players , but none of them are "all-time great" a la Bossy or Lafleur.
EDIT: I looked very quickly and the last two 1st overall canadian wingers were Rick Nash (100% sure that he's not going to be an all-time great) and Taylor Hall (I haven't been following him very closely , how does he look right now? Can he become one of the top players in the league?).Canada produces a ridiculous amount of great centers though.
