Well I realize the whole second overall pick thing works against what I'm saying.

It's just that Ive heard several times actually on this site from people whom remember what Shanny was like in junior and the fact that they thought he'd become a decent player, but never the superstar he became.

The point is that for a guy who may hit 600 goals before his career is over, and could be a hall of famer at some point, his junior production and play was hardly fantastic.

Adam Oates dosent really fall in that catogory cause he had impressive numbers in college... but he was'nt even drafted...

The fact he racked 1400+ pts already in the NHL is pretty impressive for a guy that no one of the 21 club of the time though he was an NHLer!

What about Patrice Bergeron? Only one season in the Q and he has 18 pts in 29 games I think.

Yup. Before last season, he was playing midget, because the junior team said he should just stay there and then come up the next season. Prior to that midget season, he was still in bantam I think.

Look no further than Patrick Roy... 6.26 GAA, 4.44 GAA and 5.55 GAA in juniors. Granted he played in a very bad team and it was a different era... still, the stats are very unimpressive for what turned out to be the best goalie of all-time (arguably)
