Oh Dion, why you gotta take Sean’s “sloppy seconds”?  He was selected 9th overall by the Calgary Flames in the 2003 entry draft.  Dion grew up in Edmonton, where his mother was a former figure skater, where she taught him how to skate.   He frequently practiced hockey in his basement where he blew holes through nets while perfecting his slap shot.  I don’t mind Dion, he seems like an okay guy, but he is an impact player in today’s game (although some may disagree).
