I'll be the first to mention LINDROS!!

I mention Lindros not because of a previous post but because he really lived up to his potential...at least, at the the WHJC (he dominated).
I also remember a bit of Marty Lapointe and a bit of Kariya. Although I think Kariya is very, very overrated.

Like anyone else, I would have loved to see Mario "The Best" Lemieux play in the juniors!! Or, the GREATzky!!

But you're not allowed to post that without being ridiculed.So here goes:He might
be good in the Q but so was Alexander Daigle.

I haven't heard that name for awhile.He had amazing offensive talent but
was not willing to work too hard on defence.

He was my favorite player when I was a toddler and one of the reasons that I became a Pens fan. He must have been awsome in junior. His stats are awsome enough but with the way he played and the Q being the Q must have made for some fun hockey.

Alexandre Daigle. His linemate Matthew Barnaby wasn't too bad either.

I saw Robert Gordon Orr play for the Niagra Falls Flyers. He literally took my breath away. Our nighbor at the time, the great Lynn Patrick, told me then, "This kid will be the greatest hockey player who's ever lived." Uncle Lynn was right, as usual.

That's very debatable but well who really cares.

Either you didn't really see Orr or your mind is slipping. Bobby Orr played for the Oshawa Generals. Derek Sanderson Played for the Niagra Falls Flyers.
Both teams were owned by the Boston Bruins I believe.

I remember arguing with cougar fans when Chara started there that he would make the NHL,though i must admit he's a much better all round NHLer than i ever dreamed he would become.

My personal favorite was Barry "bubba" Beck with the New Westminster Bruisins in the mid 70's.He was so dominant in junior,even his 1st few years with the Rockies in the NHL he was a force.
