What order would the following players be drafted assuming they were all eligible the same year. (you have to base yor anwer on Junior careers alone).

Bobby Orr
Wayne Gretzky
Mario Lemieux
Eric Lindros

My answer was and still is:

# 1 Bobby Orr
# 2 Eric Lindros
# 3 Mario Lemieux
# 4 Wayne Gretzky

ps. since you started the thread I do not feel this is a hi-jacking situation but rather a slight side-bar
Based on the junior career alone you would have to consider Bryan Fogarty and Denis Potvin as D-men after Orr.
