Really it is interesting that the last superstar imo drafted #1 was Crosby in 2005. Some would say Stamkos I guess but I'm not so sure.
Crosby, Toews, Doughty are gods going forwards anyway. I just don't see younger players in that class tbh and I don't think I'm too far off with that. All of those players were great and known to be great at draft age. Maybe we have some late bloomers in the under 24 mix that will still astound.
Superstars are pretty rare. You are a real downer lol. THere are piles of very good young Canadian players.
