Claude Lemieux Says Son Brendan “Crushed” He Did Not Go In The First Round

from Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger,

 Claude Lemieux thinks the Devils made a bad decision by failing to take his son, Brendan, with the 30th overall pick at the end of the first round of the NHL entry draft Friday night.

The Buffalo Sabres made the younger Lemieux the first pick of the second round Saturday morning at No. 31.

“You’ve got to respect their view and their choice,” Claude Lemieux said of the Devils. “I think they made a mistake, but it’s good for Buffalo and time will tell.”

He said Brendan was hoping to be a first-rounder.

“He was definitely disappointed. He was crushed last night,” Claude said. “It wasn’t from what I said but from all the interviews the do at the combine. Sometimes they are misleading for a lot of kids, who think, ‘This team told me they'd take me in the first round if I’m there.’ ”

Gosh the only thing sadder than a Lemieux being crushed is winning a lifetime supply of blowjobs.

uh… it’s called the “being a sarcastic bastard” measurement. it’s actually logically irrefutable so your point is moot
