Wasn't the Spitfires top line Taylor Hall - Adam Henrique - Justin Shugg? The 09 - 10 lineup was something like:
Taylor Hall - Adam Henrique - Justin Shugg
Eric Wellwood - Scott Timmins - Zack Kassian
Kenny Ryan - Greg Nemisz - Dale Mitchell
Adam Wallace - Stephen Johnston - Derek Lanoue
Sorry for being nitpicky - just don't want your article to be wrong!
Are you sure they didn't play together on the 09-10 team that won the cup because Adam Henrique, Taylor Hall and Eric Wellwood have all told me differently. Direct quote from Adam, "It was me and Hallsy together for three years and ya know we had guys coming in and out of the line, but once we found Eric ya know we started playing really well together."
Sheldon Kennedy for surviving both the Swift Current Broncos bus crash and Graham James.
Patrick O'Sullivan is another player like Sheldon Kennedy and Bobby Ryan who you can't really say has the 'best' back story (they're all pretty horrible), but has a pretty compelling one. It's inspiring to know how these guys can succeed and make the NHL when they've faced so many obstacles.
