The Albany River Rats are pleased to select a solid scorer, cracking the 40 goal, 60 assist, and 100 point mark for the first time this season, with an all-around, two-way game in

Daniel Alfredsson (http://www.nhlpa.com/WebStats/PlayerBiography.asp?ID=49)

In his first NHL playoff series in 1997, Alfredsson led the Senators in scoring and scored two game-winning goals, though the Senators bowed to the Buffalo Sabres in a hard fought seven games. Then to prove that was no fluke, he scored seven goals in 11 playoff games in the 1998 post season, including three, first-period goals in a span of 12 minutes as the Senators defeated the Washington Capitals 4-3.

The Senators showed their respect for him when they named him captain of the team for the 1999-2000 season after Alexei Yashin, who wore the "C" the previous year, decided to sit out when the Ottawa club refused to renegotiate his contract. - HHoF Bio (http://www.legendsofhockey.net:8080/LegendsOfHockey/jsp/SearchPlayer.jsp?player=15153)

"He's one of the best all-around, two-way players in the game. He's an excellent skater, a creative puckhandler and an opportunistic scorer. He's nearly as good a finisher as he is a playmaker. Plus, he kills penalties, he'll give up his body to block shots and he's got a lot of grit to him. He's not a huge banger, but he plays through pain and gives you a point a night. He's as honest as the day is long." - Ultimate Sports Hockey 2000-2001

"Assets - Has an impeccable work ethic and never takes a shift off. Is a smooth-skating winger that isn't afraid to get his nose dirty. Possesses creativity with the puck and a wicked wrist shot" - TSN (http://tsn.ca/nhl/teams/players/bio/?id=441&hubname=nhl-sens)

The Toronto Marlies proudly select Dan Bain C

For eight seasons Dan played a rather large role on one of hockey's first great teams. During this time, the muscular Bain provided scoring, playmaking and a physical dominating presence to two Stanley Cup championship squads. Along with his great skills on ice, he was blessed with natural leadership qualities. He was the Captain for the Winnipeg Victorias in the pre-National Hockey League days. Dan led the Victorias to two Stanley Cups, becoming the first team from outside Montreal to win the Cup. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1945. Dan was a skillful forward who made history by registering the first-ever extra-time Cup-winning goal. -Bain's extraordinary career in sports was recognized when he was chosen Canada's outstanding athlete of the last half of the 19th century.

Don't worry. I actually had Johansson ranked No. 2 among defencemen, ahead of Redden. Calle was a very smooth all-round defenceman who never got the credit he deserved. An all-star at the 1996 World Cup. The Capitals were always one of the top 3 to 5 blue-line corps in the league during the 90s, and Johansson was their mainstay.

Felix Potvin,G

In his prime.Felix was confident cunning and incredibly quick across his goal crease.His reactions were excellant and he had the poise of a 10 year vet. Often compared to Patrick roy and for good reason Felix is a butterfly goalie who snaps his legs closed on five whole shots. He remains in the and relies on his cat like reflexes.Very strong on first shots - seems to smother rebounds. Excellent on low shots.
In his early years with the Leafs, Potvin was a workhorse who, in his first big-league campaign, carried his club to the semi-finals where they eventually lost to Wayne Gretzky and his Los Angeles Kings. By the time he'd completed his six-year run with the Blue and White, Potvin had more games played and wins than all other Leafs stoppers except for Turk Broda and Johnny Bower. He set a club record, leading the league in games played with 74 during the 1996-97 season. During that campaign, he faced more shots than any goaltender in league history. He has 7 20+ win years and three 30+ wins in a yr 266W 260 L 85 T 2.76 GAA 0.905 sp 32 shout outs

The Albany River Rats are pleased to select one of the early greats

Hod Stuart (http://www.legendsofhockey.net:8080/LegendsOfHockey/jsp/LegendsMember.jsp?mem=p194511&type=Player&page=bio&list=ByName)

William "Hod" Stuart learned to play hockey on the fertile sporting grounds that were the Ottawa Valley. He enjoyed playing rugby in the autumn but later rose to prominence as one of the greatest defencemen to play the game in hockey's early day. He was as complete a player as there was back in the days of the "onside" game. He could skate, shoot, and make the big play from his point position.

Stuart was a clean player who played for keeps. His punishing checks and long reach frustrated his opponents as much as his offensive rushes dazzled the fans.

An estimated 3,800 spectators attended a Hod Stuart Memorial Game on January 2, 1908. The exhibition, pitting the Montreal Wanderers against a squad of All-Stars, raised close to $2,000 for Stuart's widow and two children, and was the first such "all-star" contest in hockey. - HHoF Bio

The Oughts:

Best Skater: Hod Stuart

Best Defensive Defenseman: Hod Stuart

Best Offensive Defenseman: Hod Stuart had top-notch skating ability, blazing speed, an a God-given genius for handling the puck. Like Doug Harvey and Bobby Orr, Stuart had the ability to control the tempo of the game.

Stuart stands among a select group of hockey legends, He was capable of controlling a game's flow, much like Doug Harvey of the Montreal Canadiens some 50 years later. Stuart died in his late twenties. One can only imagine what his career would hve been had he lived longer. In the eyes of Hall of Fame referee Chaucer Elliot, Stuart could "skate, shoot, play-make, and play-break... and was a good fellow as well."

Stuart was one of the 12 charter members of the Hockey Hall of Fame, elected in 1945. - Ultimate Hockey

The Albany River Rats are pleased to select a player who was a 1st team all-star in all 5 years of the WCHL/WHL's existence

Duke Keats (http://www.legendsofhockey.net:8080/LegendsOfHockey/jsp/LegendsMember.jsp?mem=p195812&type=Player&page=bio&list=)

In 1919 Keats joined the Edmonton Eskimos of the Big 4 western league and led the league in scoring for the next two seasons. In 1921 the Eskimos joined the Western Canada Hockey League and it was around this time that story is told of Duke skating the length of the ice backwards and scoring a goal on the opposition. We may never know if Keats actually accomplished such a feat but it is certainly a fact that he was a perennial All-Star while in the WCHL, being named to the First Team for four consecutive years from 1922 to 1925. He was also named as a First Team All-Star for the Western Hockey League in 1926. One of his most memorable goals came in the 1923 WCHL playoffs against Regina. Keats won the game for Edmonton on a penalty shot and the victory sent the Eskimos into the Stanley Cup finals against the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League. The Senators won the best-of-three series with two, single-goal victories, one coming in overtime. - HHoF Bio

By age 14, Gordon Keats was tearing up the Cobalt Mining League on O'Brien Mines team. In the wake of his storied stints in Haileybury and Peterborough, the professional teams started to remember his name. After a while, people were coming from all over to sneak a peak at hockey's newest wunderkind. Keats received offers from every professional hockey town in the country. He signed in the fall of 1915 with the Toronto Blueshirts. In 1915-16, his rookie season, the tall muscular lad was stuffed in between Corb and Cy Denneny, a unit that would become the highest scoring in the NHA that season. Keats lived up to his billing, scoring 22 goals and 29 points in 24 games.

Keats hit his stride in Edmonton. The "Iron Duke", hailed on all sides as one of the most dominating forces ever seen, was the best player in the league. Throngs of people clamored to see this ig, strong center perform miracles with the puck. He shot as well as anyone anywhere, combining unparalleled offensive ability with a hard, clean style to become the greatest player to play in Edmonton before Gretzky. - Ultimate Hockey

A fiery leader, once while playing for Toronto of the National Hockey Association during the 1916-17 season, Keats became so angered by the poor performance of goalie Billy Nicholson that he strapped on the pads and took over in net himself for the next period. - Wings of Legend (http://www.hockeytown.com/history/wol/wol-dukekeats.jsp)

18. Duke Keats, 2420 NPIM- Skill and toughness rolled into one. Keats was especially grumpy in 1926, the final year of the WCHL, when he collected 401 NPIM. - Normalized Penalties (http://members.shaw.ca/hbtn/player_study/norm_pen_goon.htm)

"Duke is the possessor of more hockey grey matter than any man who ever played the game." - Frank Patrick

"Keats was the brainiest pivot that ever strapped on a skate because he could organize plays and make passes every time he starts." - Lester Patrick

"Gordon (Duke) Keats was the best player of all time. You would have thought he had a nail in the end of his stick, the way he could carry that puck around. He was that good." - Lloyd McIntyre, Edmonton Eskimo teammate

#8 Marty Barry,C-X4B-6'0"195



Wherever he played, Marty Barry was a productive center whose work ethic was lauded by teammates and opponents alike. His stamina and dedication made him one of the most consistent and durable performers of his era. Between 1929 and 1939, he missed only two NHL regular season gamesA proficient scorer, he was known by the local sportswriters as "Goal-a-Game" Barry.

If we had Cooney Weiland, we’d be here," Ross expressed of Detroit’s all-star center. "If I had Marty Barry," Adams countered, referring to the Boston center, "we’d win the Stanley Cup."
The deal was consummated in June, with Barry and Art Giroux coming to Detroit for Weiland and Walt Buswell.
That April 1937, Adams was proven a prophet. Barry finished second in NHL scoring with 40 points and the Wings whipped Toronto to win their first title. Barry was third in league scoring the following year and led all playoff snipers with 11 points as Detroit retained its crown. He also set a playoff record in points that year and had the Conn Smythe been awarded back then hewould had claimed that as well.

The 1936-37 season was Barry’s finest. He earned selection to the First All-Star Team, was awarded the Lady Byng Trophy and scored two goals in Detroit’s 3-0 Cup-clinching victory over the New York Rangers, including the Cup winner.

"First, they award me the Lady Byng Trophy and then I score two goals tonight," Barry said after that game. "I guess I was celebrating."

Barry led the Wings in scoring in three of his four seasons with the club and the unit of Barry, Larry Aurie and Herbie Lewis was recognized as the NHL’s most effective forward line. "He was a very smooth centerman," teammate Carl Liscombe remembered of Barry. "He had the talent to get the puck by everyone. In that sense, Marty was one of the best." He gained a place in the Red Wings Hall of Fame in 1944 and the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1965

The Rochester Americans select....

Vladimir Dzurilla

Most North American hockey fans hadn`t heard of Vladimir Dzurilla until the `76 Canada Cup late in his career, but he was the top goalie in Czechoslovakia throughout the late 60s. He was named the top goalie at the 1965 World Championships. He was one of the biggest goalies of his era, but had remarkably quick reflexes for someone of his burly size. In the 1970s Jiri Holocek emerged as the top Czech goalie, and Dzurilla would serve as his backup in most international tournaments, but in was at the 1976 Canada Cup where Dzurilla had another chance to shine. After Holocek had struggled against the U.S., Czech coach Jan Starsi put Druzilla in nets. In the next game against the mighty Canadian team (arguably the greatest hockey team ever), Dzurilla shut them out in a shocking 1-0 victory, receiving a respectful ovation from the Canadian crowd. He was a jovial man who always had a smile on his face and never failed to put hockey in it`s proper perspective. After the win against Canada when a reporter asked if it was the best moment of his life, he calmly answered that his marriage and the births of his children were the greatest thrills of his life.

reck,

I think the reason why is because we've kind of tapped the Original Six era. There isn't a ton of talent yet. A lot of the 20s and 30s players, as well as pre-NHL players, tend to slip because they don't get a lot of attention, except for the stars. As for the post WHA merger, we've seen those guys play, we know what they're about, but one other factor: there's more players to choose from. The quantity of players for the minor league draft is superior.

Thanks to LL and Spit for your help, and to Murphy2 for organizing. I basically found out we were going ahead with this right before leaving Regina. Spent the night at my grandparents out in the boonies, and they don't have internet. Glad to see you guys had fun and were able to put a serious dent into this. Now we have to continue the momentum.

A brief synopsis on our selections:

*Barry Pederson: A skilled, slick pivot whose career was cut short by injuries. Averaged over 100 points his first three full seasons, and had a couple dominant playoffs in Boston, too.
*Russ Courtnall. Love his versatility. He has the offensive skill to play on my second line, but he was part of a sensational checking line in Montreal in the late 80s/early 90s. He's also a Notre Dame grad, and I wanted at least one of those on my team.
*Mickey Redmond. One of the top three RWs not selected in the primary draft. Was coming into his own as a perennial all-star RW when he suffered a serious injury in 1974.
*Kirk McLean. A sentimental pick. A two-time Vezina finalist, a second team all-star in 1992 and, IMO, the Canucks unquestionable MVP in the 1994 playoffs, when they came within one win of winning Lord Stanley. McLean and Tom Barasso are two of the last true stand-up goalies.
*Lynn Patrick. I was hoping to land Craig Simpson for this spot, but Patrick will do just fine. An HHOFer and a two-time all-star at LW. Won a Cup and led the league in goals. Not bad for a second line LW in the minor league draft.

Anyways, sorry about the delay. I didn't see him selected, or in LL's alphabetical list of players drafted, so we take a rock-solid defensive blue-liner who could be a little dirty at times (just ask Pat LaFontaine):

D Jaime Macoun

Just thought for fun's sake (and to get some discussion going) I'd post some thoughts on last night's activities. Hope nobody takes offence to my takes. Enjoy.

Thoughts…

*Murphy2: Blaine Stoughton had several seasons in which he ranked among the top offensive right wings in the league. I had Craig Simpson as the second-best left winger in the draft, behind Bun Cook. I think he would have been the 1990s answer to Glenn Anderson if not for his back injury. 56-goal scorer, 1990 playoff scoring leader and a solid agitator. There aren’t many defensive defencemen in this draft better than Bill Hajt. Jason Smith went a little early for my liking (OK, a lot early) but hopefully he’ll be the captain of a Stanley Cup champion after tonight.
*Spitfire11: Dave Poulin is, bar none, the best defensive centre available in the minor league draft. Combined outstanding poise, anticipation and instincts to become one of the best defensive forwards in the post-Gainey era. Decent offensive instincts, too. Only injuries held him back. This team will be tough to play against with Poulin, Draper and Holik. Those guys have some rings, too. Harry Watson is one of the top wingers available. I didn’t have Gustafson that high, but he’s a good player for this draft.
*Hedberg: I think we know all we need to know about Henderson. Bergman was one of my top-rated available defencemen. Gary “Suitcase” Smith is as good of a goalie that there is in the draft. Those make up nicely for the selection of Ray Ferraro.
*BM67: There isn’t much to choose between the goalies available in this draft. But any time you can nab an HHOF goalie in the seventh round, you’re doing well. Hap Holmes was one of the best pre-Original 6 goaltenders. Jean Pronovost was a highly skilled offensive forward who had some excellent seasons. Not many four-time all-star game participants available. Albany police will be asking for a raise knowing that Derek Sanderson is in town.
*raleh: They could have renamed the Lady Byng Award the Clint Smith Award and nobody would have complained. Embodied the traits of skill and sportsmanship. Not much info on raleh’s other selections, but it’s not the first time that raleh’s gone off the board. (They can’t be any worse than Martin Straka, though. Sorry, raleh).
*jtuzzi: I’m shocked five-time Cup champion Charlie Huddy slipped this far. He was one of my top-five defencemen for this draft. Very underrated, he was a defensive backbone for the Oilers, and he could chip in offensively, too. Jt, from one diehard Canuck fan to another, how can you pass up Captain Kirk to pick JS Giguere? Team toughness won’t be a problem with Dave Samenko.
*Leaf Lander: If the Leafs couldn’t make the playoffs with Kabarle and McCabe as their top defensive pairing, how can the Marlies go far? Bob Davidson is a nice pickup, a little early for my liking, but he’s a steady, reliable defensive forward with an offensive upside. Not many of those available for the checking line. Spezza’s selection appears to be as much for what he will do in the future as what he is now.
*reckoning: reckoning may be the only GM in minor draft history to get the steal of the draft in the first round. (Bernie Nichols). We won’t be saying the same thing about his 11th round pick. I’m a big Carney fan, he was stellar for Anaheim in 2003, but he’s nowhere near 94th in the farm draft good. Mackell’s a solid addition. Not many former first-team all-stars out there. Dallas Smith played his junior hockey where I live, so that gives him instant credibility in my eyes. Strong defensive defenceman.

Jason Smith was a definite sentimental pick. I had to have him and didn't want to risk him getting scooped. As I mentioned earlier I had a list put together at work and was scrambling to put another one together last night. I did alright except I knew I was missing someone and that was Bill Hajt. It was worth the quick trip to work to get the list or I'd have forgotten him.

Everytime Spitfire made a pick I went huh? Are they not gone already?, Holik, Draper, Poulin and Redmond are all guys I completely overlooked, assuming they were picked already. He's got some nice options for a checking line now where as I have none..... :help:

BM-67 scooped guys I wanted in Jean Pronovost and Marc Tardiff.

jtuzzi grabbed Charlie Huddy who I assumed was gone already. That pick also made me go huh?

Reckoning made a nice pick with Tony McKegney.

GBC grabbed a very nice goaltender with Kirk McLean and Barry Pederson, another two guys I overlooked.

I feel bad that Raleh didn't take pick last night but I think you recovered with some nice picks. At least I think you did as I know very little of any of them, got some reading to do on those guys.

I could hear L.L scream after I picked Palmateer......... :yo:

Actually, Spitfire nabbed Redmond for me. I couldn't pass him up. He was well on his way to a fine career before the injury bug kicked in.

I had Pederson ranked third for offensive centres (behind Nichols and Broten) and fifth for centres overall (behind Unger and Poulin). I had McLean ranked #1 for goalies, but there's a slight twinge of bias behind that one.

Hajt is just solid, solid, solid. One of the top defensive defencemen available. I knew the blue-line depth was really lacking in this draft, that's why I scooped up Smith, James Patrick and Reinhart early. Now with Macoun rounding out my top four, I can chip away at my forwards.

Redmond was a very good pick, I would have taken him in round 4 if I didn't already have 2 RW by then. Everyone made some nice ones though :handclap:

Kind of suprising but there's still a lot of good RW left. I thought they ran out quickly in the main draft but in terms of quality for the minor league draft there's still some bargains out there.

I think RW's a funny position. There isn't a lot of depth at the RW position among the all-time greats (there are still more players listed as LWs than RWs on the HHOF website). There aren't a lot of RWs who fit into that top-two line description for an all-time draft. But the overall depth at RW is better than LW, and there are a lot of RWs from the last 30 years who fit the minor draft bill, especially for the top two lines/13th forward. (Not as much for a checking or crash-and-bang line. That's why I wanted Russ Courtnall so bad, because he can play on a checking line).

McCabe and Kaberle were not the problems in toronto this year. They are underated and compliment one another.Leetch said it himself Bryan Mccabe is the best defensive partner that he ever played with. You be wrong If your suggesting that kaberle and mccabe were an inadequate first pairing unit and thus a huge part of the reason why toronto didnt make the playoffs.The reason Toronto didnt make the playoffswas because of bad/slow FA signings by Fergusson.The continued insertation of domi belak and belfour into the nighlty lineup was a huge part of a losing formula for the 05/06 season.

Caber and Kabs can play at a high level for 30 minutes a game for an entire season.
Kabs - better skater better passer better hockey sense
Mccabe better shot stronger more physical along the boards

Courtnall played in toronto I know alot about him :) but ill respect you reasons for selecting him. He has great speed and he is offensive minded. He had the type of speed that would allow him to play in todays game.

I'm picking some players a little early for areason Ill tell u later lol

Sorry, can you explain how "the players I am drafting are your players too?" The guys I pick are based on my own analysis and insight. Yeah, sometimes I pick a guy earlier than most of you might have had him ranked, but usually there's a reason for it. (Versatility, winning mentality, playoff performance, etc.) Witness Theo Fleury and Kevin Stevens. As for the minor league draft, I went top-heavy on defencemen early because I believed they were in short supply (an opinion that is further validated as the draft progresses), and pieced together my forwards using the leftovers.

I'm not knocking you for selecting McCabe and Kabarle, and I'd never knock you personally. You, Spit and BM do way too much work for this. I know you hold your Leafs high. (Especially Kabarle). I just think there are better defencemen out there, some of whom played in Toronto.

But I am looking forward to the reason you selected McCabe and Kabarle, other than your unflickering love for the Leafs. (I have a hunch, but I'll PM it to you. Wouldn't want it to go league-wide).

I read up on all the players. I take the info that best describes there game and then I quote it. Most of the 400 mini bios are selected by me.

I plan on doing this for every player.Many tiems once a player is drafted I have already read about him or researched him for the draft.With the data entry thsi draft is a job so having fun picking has ment much to me.Once I have entered player info for all players Maybe then i can sit down and draw up lusts. I always draft from the top of my head.


kaberle hasn'y peaked yet I wonder if mccabe can raise his game more. His mental side undermines the other very developed parts of his game.If he could put it all together maybe maybe he could become a great defenceman
I truely beleive that together the yare a great tandum and because they are leafs they get dismissed because of blind loyalty by the masses in leafs nation. However I do not live in ontario:)

Jack was one of those old-time players who grew up, played and died in the same city - his home town of Ottawa, Ontario. He was a rarity in that he played right wing but was a left-hand shot. While not an unusual strategy today, in the early days of the century, playing on the "wrong wing" was pioneering. He was a superb skater, a very clever stickhandler and had a good backhand shot. As a result, Darragh was a prolific scorer.Had there been conn smyth trophies awarded back in his playing days he would had won ot twice (1920 and second in 1921)

"An all-star defenseman who performed capably in the shadows of such Hall of Famers as (Black) Jack Stewart, Red Kelly, Bill Quackenbush and Marcel Pronovost, Leo Reise played a quietly effective game and owned a reputation for scoring clutch goals, especially during the Stanley Cup playoffs. Without Reise’s sniping abilities, the Wings wouldn’t have reached the finals in 1949 or 1950.

His third-period shorthanded goal in Game 7 of the 1949 semifinal against Montreal snapped a 1-1 tie and propelled the Wings to a 3-1 victory. Reise gathered the puck in his own zone and battled along the boards past all five Montreal skaters before driving a 40-foot shot past Canadiens goalie Bill Durnan.

"Leo Reise scored that goal that broke the tie because he absolutely refused to give up," Wings coach Tommy Ivan said. "He lost the puck twice and got it back because he kept fighting for it."

The River Rats are pleased to select the runner-up for the Calder in 61, at RW

Bob Nevin (http://www.legendsofhockey.net:8080/LegendsOfHockey/jsp/SearchPlayer.jsp?player=13837)

Right-winger Bob Nevin played over 1,100 NHL games for four different NHL teams. He was a fine playmaker and goals scorer who could also check and lead by example on the ice.

Nevin scored 21 goals as a rookie in 1960-61 and finished runner-up in the Calder trophy voting to teammate Dave Keon. The hard working forward played solid two-way hockey for the Leafs playing with Red Kelly and Frank Mahovlich and helped them win the Stanley Cup in 1962 and 1963. In February 1964 he was part of the package assembled to acquire star forward Andy Bathgate from the New York Rangers.

Nevin played over seven years in New York and topped the 20-goal mark five times. He helped the Blueshirts become one of the top outfits in the NHL and registered 107 points in 1970-71. A respected leader on the ice and in the dressing room, Nevin began a six-year run as team captain in 1965-66.

The River Rats are pleased to select a player who led his team in goals and points, and finished 3rd in all-star voting at right wing in both 2002-03 and 2003-04

Marian Hossa (http://www.legendsofhockey.net:8080/LegendsOfHockey/jsp/SearchPlayer.jsp?player=11297)

In the same season he appeared briefly with the Senators but his next season was delayed by a serious knee injury. In the end, he played 60 games and spent most of his time doing defensive work on the checking line. But when he began scoring goals and collecting points, he seemed to be making up for lost time. He played only two-thirds of the season, but in the voting for the Calder Trophy he came in second after Chris Drury. His solid performance also earned him selection on the NHL All-Rookie Team and once the Senators were eliminated from the post season, he made his second appearance at the World Championships.

Hossa gave the game everything he had. It was becoming clear that Ottawa was offering him the opportunity to be a major player on their team. They started comparing him with Jaromir Jagr, who at the same age conducted himself in a similar manner

In 1999-00 Hossa tied for the team league in goals with 29 and over the next three seasons topped the 30-goal mark twice and 40-goal mark once. On the internation stage, Hossa went on to represent his homeland for the third time at 2001 World Championships and for the first time at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

One of the elite players in the NHL, Hossa went on to finish fifth in leauge scoring in 2003-04 with a career 82 points (36-46-82). Although his NHL season came to an abrupt end in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, Hossa would suit up for Team Slovakia at the 2004 World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic.

I was going to nab Wesley when I picked Macoun. But I thought "it's Game 7 tonight, Wesley's on Carolina, I'm cheering for Edmonton, and I know I'll hear it from Murphy 2 if I pick Wesley." After Carolina beat Edmonton, I had to scratch Wesley off my consideration list. It just wouldn't be right.

BTW, there's a little village about 15 from where I live named Macoun. (The village is pronounced Mac-oon, rhymes with racoon). So I couldn't pass up a player who shares a name with a community I've been to many times, even though the pronunciation is different.

Thing about Wesley is I thought he was invisible. I guess thats a good thing in that he didn't make any mistakes but really you don't even notice him out there at all.

Quietly efficient is how I'd describe Wesley.

Nice snag with Bob Nevin, BM67. He was about my last hope for any semblance of a checking line and seeing as none of my forwards know that end of the ice I really needed a guy like him.

Glen Wesley,D was extremely reliable in the defensive zone.An underrated defenceman for the entire length of his long 17 year career.He plays a discreetly tough game, nice skater, has a hard point shot, tough to get around and uses his body well in the defensive zone. In Glens prime he had a savoire faire for playmaking. Shows great leadership among his fellow rearguards. Plays against top talent and usually holds his own. In his prime years he put up good offensive numbers. He was a key defensive component for boston andcarolina as both teams went to the finals once each. He was the key defenceman as he lead carolina to stanley cup appearence in 02 and again he filled a top role for toronto in there playoff run of 03'.Most recently he was a pilar on defence for the 05-06 Stanley Cup Champion Carolina Hurricanes.

Red Dutton (http://www.legendsofhockey.net:8080/LegendsOfHockey/jsp/LegendsMember.jsp?mem=p195805&type=Player&page=bio&list=ByName)

Mervyn "Red" Dutton was educated at St. John's College in Winnipeg but left school to join Princess Patricia's Light Infantry, enlisting in 1915. In April 1917 he took a shrapnel blast to the right leg that was so bad that doctors considered amputation. They delayed, and he recovered full use of his leg. Dutton was discharged from the service in 1919 and upon returning home to Winnipeg he strengthened his leg by playing in seven local hockey leagues during the 1919-20 season.

In 1920, after a failed attempt to enter business as a subcontractor, he turned to professional hockey and accepted $2,500 to play for Calgary of the Big Four Hockey League. He went on to become a two-time Western Canada Hockey League first team all-star and played in the NHL's Ace Bailey Benefit Game in 1934. He once said of himself, "I wasn't a good hockey player, but I was a good competitor."


The River Rats are pleased to select a two-time Memorial Cup champion and an NHL 1st team all-star in 85

John Ogrodnick (http://www.legendsofhockey.net:8080/LegendsOfHockey/jsp/SearchPlayer.jsp?player=11224)

An offensively gifted player, Ogrodnick made his NHL debut with Detroit during the 1979-80 season. After beginning the season with the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Adirondack, Ogrodnick joined the Wings in January and went to score eight goals while adding 24 assists for 32 points.

Ogrodnick played seven and a half seasons with Detroit, where he was an NHL First Team All-Star in 1985, after he finished fourth in league goal scoring with 55 behind only future Hall of Famers Wayne Gretzky, Jari Kurri and Mike Bossy and went on to represent the Red Wings at the NHL All-Star Game on five separate occasions (1981, 1982, 1984, 1985 and 1986).

Lennart Svedberg,D

Svedberg is regarded to be the most talented Swedish defenseman ever. Everybody called him "Lill-Strimma". He was an exceptionally creative defenseman who was a joy to watch. His unpredictable moves and effortless skating made him extremely hard to stop. He was a Paul Coffey type of player in regards of skating and offensive play. He didn't score many goals, but he set up a lot and created havoc in the offensive zone. Tarasov was fascinated by Lill-Strimma's spontaneous rushes and his creativeness

Lill-Strimma represented Sweden 125 times, scoring 16 goals. He was named to the World Championship All-Star team three years in a row (1968-70). In 1970 he was voted as the best defenseman in the World Championships

On July 29,1972 hockey fans received the shocking message that Lennart "Lill-Strimma" Svedberg had died in a car accident, only 28 years old and at the peak of his hockey career.

Those who saw him play will never forget his high speed rushes over the ice that captured fans everywhere. He was a bohemian player and didn't follow any given patterns. It was this unique trademark that made him stand out among the players.

He was a "Michelangelo" on ice.


Chris Osgood,G

Chris is a steady butterfly goalie with strong leadership abilities.He waits patiently for shooters to make the first move and relies heavily relies on his quickness and sharp reflexes to compensate for his small frame. He has strong positioning which allows him to play a controled game. Doesn't let outside distractions faze him. Through most of his career Osgood continued to be among the NHL's busiest and winningest netminders.He has played 600 career games with a record of 325-183-71 GAA-2.45, 43 Shut Outs .907% SP NHL Second All-Star Team (1996) William M.

The Toronto Marlies select Rick Green D

Rick was one of the game's quintessential stay-at-home defencemen, Rick Green played over 800 NHL contests between 1976 and 1991. His trademark was staying in position and utilizing his 6'3', 220lb. frame to tie up opposing forwards.He never lost a battle for the puck. What he did best of all was clear the net of opposing players!

He was a very effective defenceman ,probably played his best hockey in Mtl. He played a smart game, had decent instincts. He passed well, and actually formed a good pairing with Robinson in the latter time of Robinson's He was one of the best defensemen allong the boards.

The high point for the steady blueliner was helping Montreal vanquish the Calgary Flames to win the Stanley Cup in 1986.

Through the late 80s' Green's defensive excellence was a pillar of the club's success under Jean Perron and Pat Burns. He was picked to participate in the 1987 Rendez-vous series between the NHL and Soviet All-Stars and was a key figure when the Habs reached the final in 1989.

Dr. Gordon Roberts,LW
Dr. Gordon Roberts was a great player who managed to play professional hockey while acquiring an education in medicine at McGill University.

A strong and tireless player with a terrific shot, Roberts was one of the few early players who were able to curve his shots. He starred for the Wanderers for six seasons in the NHA and had two six-goal games and a five-goal game to his credit before leaving for the West Coast upon his graduation from McGill in 1916.


Although one of the best left wings of all time, Roberts never figured on a championship team. When he joined Ottawa in 1910 they were holders of the Stanley Cup and he helped them defend it against Edmonton, being the star of the series. The line of Walsh, Ridpath and Roberts was outstanding that year but they lost the Cup to Wanderers. Ottawa regained the Cup the following year but Roberts had left for McGill.
Gordie joined the Wanderers in 1911 and entered McGill University to study medicine. He remained with the Redbands for six years, during which time they reached the playoffs once. He played on a line with all the notable Wanderer stars including Ernie Russell, Harry Hyland, Odie Cleghorn, Carl Kendall, Brownie Baker and Don Smith. He was at his best during 1914 and 1915 playing with Hyland and Cleghorn. He was a strong and tireless player, greatly admired by his teammates. He had a terrific shot and Clint Benedict, the Ottawa goaler, always claimed that Roberts could curve the puck with his powerful wrist action.

On graduation from McGill in 1916 he left for the west coast to commence his practice of medicine. In his early years as a doctor he continued in pro hockey. He signed with Vancouver and proved a sensation with the Millionaires. He played on a line with Barney Stanley and Speed Moynes backed by Mickey Mackay at rover. In 1917 he established the all-time scoring record of the PCHA when he scored 43 goals in 23 games.

His hospital duties took him to Seattle the next year and he joined the Mets. He was again a star on a line with Cully Wilson and Bernie Morris. Seattle led the league by a good margin but lost the playoffs to Vancouver.

He did not play hockey in 1919 when Seattle won the championship but returned to Vancouver in 1920. This was his last year but playing with Alf Skinner, Jack Adams and Fred Taylor he was just as impressive as ever.

In 1922 he returned east to do some post-graduate work in medicine and Ottawa tried to sign him. He was publicized as a mystery star while negotiations were going on but his medical studies now took preference and he retired.

Roberts died on September 2nd, 1966.
He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1971

#7 Cooney Weiland, C

November 5, 1904 in Seaforth, Ontario - July 3, 1985) was a Canadian amateur ice hockey forward who played for the Boston Bruins, Ottawa Senators, and Detroit Red Wings.

One of the slickest players of his era, center Cooney Weiland tormented opposing defenses with his trickery. A magician with the puck, he helped the Boston Bruins win the Stanley Cup in 1929 as a member of the famous Dynamite Line with Dit Clapper and Dutch Gainor. And his offensive totals might have been even greater than they were had Weiland not also been such an adept penalty killer.

In 1929-30, Cooney scored a then-record 73 points in a season, which shattered the previous record of 51. Mr. Weiland was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1971, the year he retired at Harvard after guiding his teams to 315 victories, 174 defeats and 7 ties. His Crimson teams reached the national collegiate postseason tournament five times.

He was a member of the Bruins when Boston won its second Stanley Cup, in 1939, and coached the team to its third cup success, in 1941.

The Toronto Marlies select

Dave Ellett,D
Dav Ellett had tremendous resilience as a player, he was a tough defenceman who used a combination of size, strength, skill to put up good offensive numbers from his defensive position. He was a very good offensive defenceman. During his tenures with both Winnipeg and Toronto, he gained a reputation as an effective power play quarterback with his puck moving abilities and a heavy shot from the point. At the time of his trade to Toronto Dave was called a top 4 all round defenceman in the league by Don Cherry. He was one of the leaders on a strong Toronto team back in the mid 1990's he put up good numbers despite being held back by Pat Burns coaching system.. He played some of his best hockey with the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1994 playoffs, averaging a point-per-game in 18 contests

Ah! I was saving my 2nd line LW for this late...didn't think anyone would think of Kozlov. He was always great in the playoffs. Nice pick.

Detroit will take our back-up plan LW Gerard Gallant
Gallant's a great back-up plan LW. He was the LW I was hoping to land for what I'm calling my "Spunk Line:" three forwards for my fourth line who weren't big, but played big, provided energy and could provide offence.

Four straight years with 30 goals, 70 points and 250 PIMs? An all-star in 1989? I think we all wish we had a "back-up LW" like that.

BTW, we completed the 18th round in about nine-and-a-half hours. That's about a pick an hour. Great job at desperation drafting, guys. We have a good shot at wrapping this baby up by the long weekend.

In another somewhat ridiculous move, Nova Scotia selects RW Harry Hyland in the hopes that his points per game will remain the same over a longer season!
