    Oiler draft pick in '97. He led the OHL in points in '98 and '99. I have no idea why he never made the WJC (attitude, size?) not sure but last I heard of him he was in the AHL doing well. Why does he never get a shot at the NHL? He hasnt played a game in his life. I dont think its attiutde cause he never had that reputation that I know of, but he was only 5'10" which is a no-no as we know for the NHL. I dont know he dominated the OHL both years you'd think he could be a power play specialist at best. Any thoughts?

    That's not true. He played six games with the Oilers in 2003 and actually managed to score a pretty nice goal. He played pretty well and actually spent some time on the point on the powerplay. I was actually a little sad to see him get traded to Vancouver for Moss as he looked pretty decent...

    Sarno just led the Moose in scoring this year with 60 something assists. He's got speed and playmaking skills but he lacks the defensive prudence to make the NHL; his play away from the puck has been described as "abysmal".

    abysmal can be turned in to serviceable. You just can't teach offense.

    His playmaking and PP skills are NHL calibre, and he was an offensive force in the AHL this year - he was amongst the league's scoring leaders, and only Jason Spezza had more assists. But he's small, a mediocre skater, and a lousy defensive player.

    He might eventually get a shot in the NHL as a #2 center/PP specialist on a poor team. His chances of ever suiting up for the Canucks are almost nil.

    He played one year in FEL, he was a wizard with the puck but his attitude and defensive play were piss-poor.
