I know, I know. I just wrote about this set. But what to do when the very next pickup/trade I get includes more cards from the set. Inserts this time. (I spent way too much time on the inter net for a 2 card post. )

I mean you got to love players in Canada National Team Jerseys right?

Can’t really find a lot about his international career. He is currently coaching in the KHL but was on the nats in the 92-93 season and played in the U-20 World Championship. It’s a nice card. Didn’t get a sniff in the big leagues though.

Now this guy needs less introduction. Just looking at him you know his name.

Wendel Clark. Really good player who I think suffered a bit from the hype machine that exists playing in Toronto. I mean he was a #1 overall pick, but the 1985 draft was not really a blockbuster. I mean only 1 NHL Hall of Famer came out of that draft (Nieuwendyk) plus a couple of really good goalies (Richter, Ranford, Burke) Arguably the best player in the draft was the longshot crap shoot taken by the Canucks at 214 in Igor Larionov (definitely not a 18yr old). Hindsight is 20/20 and maybe the leafs should have traded the pick.
