Now, I was not a hockey fans in 1993. But I was wondering what was the hype around Daigle back in 1993? I know ppl were comparing him to Mario Lemieux back then but I dont think it is accurate as ppl must have seen the size different. Was Daigle drafted 1st overall mainly because of Pierre Turgeon maybe? They was about the same size, got almost the same points as a junior and Turgeon was drafted 1st overall from QMJHL in 1987. And I know in Daigle draft year 1993 Pierre Turgeon had just finished a super season in which he scored 58+74 for 132 points in 83 games.
