    Rick Vaive played 15 years in the NHL and was a 3-time 50 goal scorer.

    Justin Vaive is a plug.

    Does that answer your question?

    I saw him last year and thought he looked like he was adjusting to his huge frame. I'd be interested in picking him up in the later rounds but I have no clue where he's tabbed for the draft.

    Yeah I'd like to know that too.

    The Leafs may take him in the late rounds just because of politics.

    I think the Leafs will definitely be willing to toss a pick into him.

    Justin Vaive is actually one of my good friends. He is not his dad though, but I think we will see him in the NHL eventually.

    Even ignoring his father's NHL career, Justin isn't even close to as good a prospect as his dad was. Rick Vaive was the 5th overall pick in the 1979 draft. Justin might end up going in the 5th round.

    I wouldn't be surprised if someone takes him as early as the fourth round based on his size and bloodlines.

    How did this happen? Vaive played the majority of his career in Toronto from my memory banks.How did this kid end up playing for the U.S too?

    ****,we've really got to put a stop to this,we're losing too many kids.

    Way too many.

    Not funny at all.

    Geez,i know the weathers better down there but cmon!!!


    So sad.

    I could live with it if some of their guys who play up here stayed here and their kids played for us but i've yet to see one example of that yet.

    Makes a guy shake his head.Is life that much better down there?

    Justin Vaive won't make the NHL

    that is unless Phoenix drafts him and he gets in because of his dad & F.O.G.

    otherwise, not even close

    Eric's dad was Canadian.

    I mean,you would think we'd get the odd American player who chooses to stay up here to live and his young pup plays for us...............it's only fair!!But i've never seen it.

    Florida,it's Florida..........................can't compete with Florida.

    I'm sure of it.

    Right, but a lot of these kids have American mothers, which makes them eligible to compete for the United States.

    Oh,i know that.

    Still does'nt make it right in my books.Because the mother is American they have to live there?

    Geez, it's not a banana republic up here.

    These guys.....................i gotta wonder about them.It's like every guy is Chris Pronger.

    Again.........really sad.

    i watch him play just about every fri. and sat. night at Miami university, and he's pretty damn good. i don't know how much you know about Miami, but we are currently number one in the nation. i also know that justin has already been drafted by the Anaheim ducks, he was picked up in the forth round.

    So, when Paul Stastny skates for Canada in the next Olympics, I'm sure you'll note the unfairness of the situation and demand that he play for the Czech Republic.
