Sobchuk is an interesting story.

Would probably have been the #1 overall pick in the 1974 draft, but signed in the WHA part-way through his draft year, and dropped to the 5th round as a result.

Had a few big years in the WHA, then ruined his shoulder the year before the above article came out and was a shell of himself after that. Kind of a wasted career.

But yeah, it's pretty funny seeing 'OILERS FUTURE SUPERSTAR SOBCHUK' next to a picture of Gretzky in a Racers uniform.
