The Ferraro twins

Hi,

Can someone tell me about the Ferraro twins?

How were they seen at the time, as prospect?

Am I right, but they were kind of seen potential star?

Thanks!

I would describe them as the poor man's Sedins.

A lot of hype surrounding two total busts.
The scouts are better today but they werent ever really considered potential all stars.

they were hyped, as a curiosity. in the sense that they got more press (ie, some) than they deserved (none). but no, i don't think anyone thought they'd be stars, apart or together. the winger one was a late first rounder in a weak draft, the center one was a mid-rounder.

Chris went 85th and Peter went 24th in 92

Top pts getter in that draft was Gonchar with 797 pts

NO 1000pts in that draft class only one 300 goal scorer

For me by definition it was a so so draft.

There was never much hype for them both--Peter was projected to be atleast a third liner--Chris was a project

Huge hype? I don't remember this at all.

There was some interest as a curiosity - this being pre-Sedins where two identical twins playing hockey at a high level was pretty novel - but they weren't viewed as future stars.

Peter was taken in the first round but it was a surprising/off the board pick at the time. If memory serves they were considered 2nd round types heading into the draft. Might have been a bit of a PR pick - local kid, great public interest story taken as the Rangers' #1 pick in a very weak draft.

So they were decent enough prospects who - like many decent enough prospects - just didn't turn out. Maybe had a bit more press because of their unique situation but they certainly didn't get a ton of hype.

although i do remember them being impressive at the WJC leading up to their draft year, which was the year the stacked canadian team led by lindros crashed and burned.

and they were, as i recall, paul kariya's linemates when he murdered the NCAA, though that was after their draft year.

honestly, i didn't have high hopes for the sedins based on my memories of the ferraro twins and watching them become career AHL stars. i remember specifically thinking "this psychic twin thing is never going to work at the NHL level."

That doesn't seem likely. Kariya had 100 points in 39 games, the Ferraros had 50 and 51 points respectively. Meanwhile, Jim Montgomery (centre) had 95 points and Cal Ingraham (RW) had 85 on that team, both were 5-6 years older than Kariya. Seems they were most likely his linemates. Stats here.

^^ I believe its 5 in total. 3 from Sweden (Sedin's, Sundstrom's, Lundquist's) and 1 pair each from the US (Ferraro's) & Canada (Sutter's).

They're not in the NHL, even't drafted yet, but the Green and Beck twins have been drafted in the last Q draft.
