There's a new No. 1 pick...

John at Boltsmag points out a not-so-hilarious error made by a columnist at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
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?
That's about as embarrassing as it gets folks. I hope for his sake that it was an editor's error —— although, come to think of it, they should be blamed for not picking up on the gaff. I'm sure the sports department has received plenty of emails pointing out the mistake, but feel free to send a few more.

Yup, "spell checker" kills! I'm willing to give this author the benefit of the doubt.

And it's not like Crosby isn't already a household name. Some people are going to notice the mistake right away. The editors should have known better.

How do you know it's wrong?

Maybe this is a real scoop. Maybe there's some whiz kid from Boise, Idaho whose tearing up the beer leagues down there.

I tell you, this Simon Crosby is the real deal....
I think the leafs should trade Ponikarovsky and a sixth rounder to get him.
