    Gotta love ESPN's high quality hockey coverage. This is a nice comical read. Although as an Oiler fan, I can't help but dream that they are right. They really should stick to football and baseball.

    If only Hemsky were 6'5, 220 pounds and had 104 years worth of life experience, like his bio on ESPN.

    A 104 year-old prospect? Talk about a late bloomer.

    The article itself is more pathetic then the player profiles.

    Is it really a ranking? Or just a listing. I suspect it's the latter, in which case it's OK. This wouldn't be the first time HF board people have confused the two.

    AS for the strange size/b-days quoted above- I couldn't find those.

    I agree. They need to focus on sports they understand and not allow some idiot like Linda Cohn make up wild stories or make predictions about hockey. If that is a list in order of who they think the next superstar is then it is really sad.
