i voted Bourque, but was tempted to vote Fogarty, aftr 2 or 3 more years at Notre Dame, with more consistent tough competition now, in Hockey East, a big center with all-round skills will be a huge asset.

I expect Bourque's 2-way game to improve now, in his 3rd pro year. Some younger and/or smaller guys need that seasoning to emerge into the player they'll eventually be able to be.

I guess I agree with above, to add Missaen,
but Nicholls, Andersson, Graves, and Fogarty are ahead of him on my list.
And my faith in Gordie Clark has my optimistic re long-shots Hughes and Kantor.

Re v-tank, he went back to Russia for last season, NYR kept his rights by qualifying him.
Tragically, he lost his wife last season. Whether that leads to a retun to NA, who knows.
I did hear the NYR lost some faith with him due to sub-par skating.
