Speaking of St. Louis -- Dispatch Disses Crosby

He's only labeled the next Wayne Gretzky, he's been hyped for years and his name has been all over the place... Yet maybe this is a tell tale sign how bad the NHL is doing in some circles....

St. Louis Post-Dispatch writer Jeff Gordon at least makes it look that way...

Entry Draft: After a year-long shutdown, what does the NHL do with its draft? Simon Crosby is the top player coming out of the junior hockey ranks, by a lot. Should the league stage a lottery for every team this summer, once a deal is struck?

Yeah, it's definately a long road back for the NHL if the media can't even get the name of it's next superstar right.
