I was a big Rob Schremp fan. I was mesmerized by his hands and thought he had all star potential when he was playing in junior.

Missed that one by a mile.

Stanislav Chistov. Kid had a set of hands and was really skilled. Too bad he went to Russia, wonder if he would consider coming back here. Can any russian poster enlighten me with some info?

This thread has a major lack of Joni Pitkanen. He looked like a future Norris winner during his first full season, playing with Rathje (which was Rathje's last healthy season).

Brian Lawton went #1 overall and didn't score more than 40 points in an era where legends like Warren Young and Paul MacLean could score 40 goals.

Ivan Novoseltsev. I thought he was going to be a better Mariusz Czerkawski.
