The Next One

In honour of Sidney Crosby being drafted first over-all, I thought I'd bring back what is one of the greatest political quotes of the past few years.

Courtesy of Tory strategist Tim Powers: "Every day Paul Martin is looking more and more like Alexander Daigle."


  • I'm not particularly excited about Sidney Crosby. A few years ago a a childhood friend of mine, Chris, was selected first overall in the NHL draft and while he remains a very nice guy he hasn't done particularly well in the league. Then there's Eric Lindros. Where's he now? Probably recovering from another concussion. Indeed, since Mario Lemieux and Wendel Clark can you name a single #1 draft pick that's actually lived up to the hype?

  • In recent years, Kovalchuck has definitely looked like he's the real deal.

    I think people are starved for the "next one" so Corsby may be getting a bit over hyped...time will tell.

  • Ok, you asked...

    Rick Nash
    Ilja Kovalckuk (mentioned)
    Vincent Lecavalier
    Joe Thornton
    Ed Jovanovski
    Owen Nolan
    Mats Sundin
    Mike Modano
    Pierre Turgeon (last few years aside)

    All number one picks and all have been stars in the league.

    You're also being too hard on your buddy Chris. He has not been a major star, but has done well in the league.

  • You did not just put up Wendy Clark as living up to the hype did you?? haha, that is pretty funny, Wendy Clark was terrible.
