The single greatest hockey player to come out of Western Canada. He is the number 19, not Yzerman, Sakic. Burnaby Joe will be the Captain of the 2006 Men's Olympic Hockey Team. He shall lead them to another victory just as he did in '02. He has mvped the NHL, Playoff's, All-Star game, and the Olympics. No other player has done that, not even 99. Currently he stands at 13th overall in alltime NHL points. By the time his career is done, he will be in the top 5. He is the master of the snap-shot. He has zero windback on it so the goalie has no chance at all of seeing it.
"Their going to hold on and get a break, it's going to be a break, IT'S JOE SAKIC.....SCORES!!!!!!!! THAT MAKES IT 5-2 CANADA, SURELY THAT'S GOTTA BE IT!!!!!!" - Bob Cole
