I've spent enough time there to know that's how they operate. I met gate engineers whose sole purpose in life is to engineer the best possible gates in the world. That's all they were committed to.

Yes, I know that and Seto's also a halfer as well. I was just trying to make fun of Devin Setoguchi. haha. I hope he one day makes it to the NHL if he keeps going at it, IMO we need more players from non traditional countries.

Japanese kids are growing bigger than back in the day. One of these days one of those kids will make it over here.

One goalie from Japan dressed for LA on an emergency callup as I recall.

Imagine a GM making up a draft pick today. He'd be roasted alive.

This is the only somewhat recent thing that comes to mind.

Quote:
The following off-season, Ovechkin was selected first overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Washington Capitals. He had been projected as the first overall pick for nearly two years[6] and had earned comparisons to Mario Lemieux.[7] He was so highly regarded that the Florida Panthers attempted to draft him in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft in the 9th round, even though his birthday was two days after the cut-off (September 15, 1985). Rick Dudley, the general manager of the Panthers, claimed the pick was legitimate, claiming that Ovechkin was old enough with leap years taken into consideration.[7]
