The draft will last 24 rounds. You must draft 3 goalies, 7 defensemen, 13 forwards and a coach.

Trading is allowed. Trades must be equal in numbers, 2 picks for 2 picks, 1 player and a pick for 2 picks, and so on. Really lopsided trades can be vetoed.

The time limit is 9 hours for your pick. Dropping by 1 hour for each skipped pick. If you miss 2 picks you become eligible for replacement.

You must PM the next GM after your selection.

Any player from any league or era are eligible, but their selection should be based on what they have done, and not what they will do in the future.

Geez, we're only in the seventh round, and we're already into the second thread for the draft.

Harry Cameron is an astute pick. I think this is about where he belongs, although I'd have no qualms if somebody took him in the top 150. I had him in the last two drafts, and I would have picked him in this round if he was available. Best offensive defenceman on the board. The curved shot is a wicked weapon. kruezer, I have bad news: the days of Cameron slipping out of the top 200 are over.

Cameron will fit nicely on a pairing with the ultra-tough Lionel Conacher.

The Montreal Canadiens are pleased to select RW Cecil "Babe" Dye. I'm surprised he's still available; Dye led the league in goals three times and won two Art Ross trophies. Dye won the Stanley Cup in 1922 and led the playoffs in scoring; his 12 points doubled the output of the runner-up. Dye was known for his excellent wrist-shot and stickhandling ability.

Dye retired in 1931 due to injuries. He was ranked 3rd all time in goals and 5th all time in points.

Nighbor usually goes way too low. Nice to see him go higher. Can't go wrong with a guy who gets awards invented for him. But don't put any stock into his adjusted stats. Stats from prior to the 1930's simply cannot be adjusted.

Cameron and Horner gone? DAMN HELL ASS! All my plans on defence keep going down the drain...

C Joe Nieuwendyk
:clap:

The year before he led the Stars to the Stanley Cup he got injured at the start of the playoffs and it seemed that everybody who followed the team closely JUST KNEW it wasn't going to be the Stars' year. Joe was the backbone of that Stars team and as someone who watched them intensely I have to say I'm almost at a loss of words to describe how exactly. He eclipsed Modano and Hull in the intangibles. He wasn't a flashy or emotional leader. He led by example with the heart of a lion, playing through traffic, dangerous anywhere near the net, never giving up on a play, smart as hell, with a playmaker's ability to decide in a microsecond whether to shoot or pass or tip in. His eye-hand coordination was superior, he says developed during his lacrosse days. I didn't notice him much during his early years in Calgary because in my Canucks/Oilers books he was just another friggin' Flame to boo. Wish I had seen the young version, because the older one was champion material, and the MVP of the Stars for years, and no one should have been surprised when he most deservedly won the Conn Smythe in Dallas' cup year.

No kidding, everyone in this draft is rountinely grabbing all of my late round steals, and I thought I would be able to get Nieuwendyk as well, so much for that.

To think I got Cameron in the 16th round in draft #4, with the 250th pick, and also managed to pick Clint Benedict and Frank Nighbor in that same round. My centers were Messier/Mikita/Keon/Kennedy and I had Durnan backed up by Benedict in net, Aiyee things have changed

I'm getting nervous, I have a wide variety of steals in mind for rounding out my forward corps, but, I fear many will go earlier than I pick them, even though, in many cases, I plan on picking them earlier than they've ever gone.

An absolutely brilliant pick, reck. I believe you had him in your first draft. One of the biggest steals of the draft, to be sure.

If I didn't land Sweeney, I would have picked Ratelle in a heartbeat. But I decided that I needed a No. 1 offensive LW more than a 1A offensive centre for my top two lines. I really couldn't believe that he was available when I picked. I was shocked he lasted another 10 picks.

Good point.

The Thunder took into account the 6'3 size of both Serge Savard and Ron Francis in getting all-time greats to go up against divisional rival big, strong stars like Mario Lemieux (Eagles), Phil Esposito (Buckaroos) and Jaromir Jagr (Metropolitans).

Every team needs some size. A player who was 6'0 fifty years ago is comparable to a 6'3 guy today, but a 5'7 or 5'8 guy will always have a height disadvantage, though this is more of a defensive shortcoming than offensive one, and even then guys like Keon can get in the way and have opposing players trip over them to get toward the net.

Size among wingers is a bonus. Not needed, but could cause opposing defenders problems.

I felt I needed to pull the trigger on this one considering how defenseman have been going lately, just in case. With this selection, I'm proud to announce the selection of D Allan Stanley, IMO, the best defenseman by far left at this point.

An excellent defensive defenseman, Stanley was great positionally as well a tough player to play against. He was no slouch in the offensive zone either, as an excellent passer who can be used as a powerplay quarterback. He was a 4 time cup winner and had a long career that included 3 post-season All Star selections.

Having missed out on Nieuwendyk, Detroit will take a similar player with less offense but better defensive skills.

C Rod Brind'Amour

Probably won't get much appreciation from many GMs but he's a big-game two-way player and will fit nicely on my team.



I definitely appreciate Brind'amour's value as a player. I`d take somebody like him who has strong all around game over a player who's excellent at a couple of things but average at everything else. I'd also his year after year consistency over somebody who's value is inflated because of one or two high peak seasons.

The Rangers, embarrassed (though I've done that before) take a bit of a need pick but one who likely won't be around next pick, adding an excellent puckmover and better headhunter, a bit of grit that the team currently lacks. The Rangers therefore select D Gary Suter.

The Aurora Tigers are happy to select the original Russian Rocket:

Vsevolod Bobrov

"Bobrov is an outstanding individual and a great player. I consider him to be one of the ten best players in hockey history." --Maurice "Rocket" Richard

Bobrov was THE pre-eminent player of the early years of Soviet hockey. He dominated the Soviet league with 243 goals in 130 career games, and in 1948 won one of his many goal scoring titles by more than double what the runner-up had (52 vs. 23). He captained his teams to 6 national titles.

As the first ever captain of the Soviet National Team, he lead them to their surprising first WC victory in 1954, their first time ever competing. He also captained them to victory in 1956, silver in '55 and '57, and Olympic gold in 1956. Bobrov scored 89 goals in 59 international games for the USSR.

He was awarded the innaugural IIHF Directorate Best Forward Award in 1954. Consensus is that he would have won quite a few had the award existed during his prime (he retired in 1957).




Interesting sidenote: Bobrov was also one of the greatest soccer players in Russian history, and captain of the national team. To quote a player from the Yugoslavian national team:

"When I look back at my career it's the 1952 Olympic game that I remember most vividly. Vsevolod Bobrov's performance in that game is the most awesome display on a soccer field that I ever saw. He was a true superstar who played with an enormous drive and desire."

He also represented the USSR internationally in the sport of Bandy. Neat eh?

Good point.

The Thunder took into account the 6'3 size of both Serge Savard and Ron Francis in getting all-time greats to go up against divisional rival big, strong stars like Mario Lemieux (Eagles), Phil Esposito (Buckaroos) and Jaromir Jagr (Metropolitans).

Every team needs some size. A player who was 6'0 fifty years ago is comparable to a 6'3 guy today, but a 5'7 or 5'8 guy will always have a height disadvantage, though this is more of a defensive shortcoming than offensive one, and even then guys like Keon can get in the way and have opposing players trip over them to get toward the net.

Size among wingers is a bonus. Not needed, but could cause opposing defenders problems.
To me, size mostly matters in regards to battles on the boards, in the corners and in the crease. There are other areas such as reach, but those are more playing styles rather than team needs. An undersized team will lack the ability to win battles on the boards, but, not every player needs to be in those battles.

That's my opinion.
Confirmed.

I felt I needed to pull the trigger on this one considering how defenseman have been going lately, just in case. With this selection, I'm proud to announce the selection of D Allan Stanley, IMO, the best defenseman by far left at this point.

An excellent defensive defenseman, Stanley was great positionally as well a tough player to play against. He was no slouch in the offensive zone either, as an excellent passer who can be used as a powerplay quarterback. He was a 4 time cup winner and had a long career that included 3 post-season All Star selections.

Funny story, while I was working today, I stopped dead in my tracks and thought, "Allan Stanley is still available." And then for about five minutes I was in a daze debating whether or not I should trade up for him if he was still there when I got home. Obviously a null and void debate. But I decided I couldn'tr afford to trade up.
Thats a great pick. Much better than Red Horner IMO.
While I agree, the fact that Horner is a right handed shot is an advantage he has over Stanley.

All I know about Bandy is that it resembles hockey, but it's played on huge outdoor rinks, and with a ball instead of a puck. It's still played in northen Europe, although I think hockey has usurped it for the most part.

Bobrov was mostly a left winger, and his style has been said to have been very similar to Richard's, minus the temper.

Agreed. We had 15 picks yesterday. Why? Because Elvi and pnep PMed lists to other GMs in the draft. If some people want to be making picks in July, that's their choice. I do not. We need to be making 10 picks a day. Period. Or we will be picking players in July. And I think I speak for everyone in this draft when I say that I would much rather be golfing, camping, fishing, barbecuing or sitting on a patio with friends, than tracking the draft picks.

#66 is right. If you don't PM your list to another GM when you know damn well that your pick is approaching and you don't PM your list to another GM, it shows a lack of respect.

Arrbez is right. In addition, the fitness level you need to have to play bandy is just insane.The field is just as big as a football field. They play 2 periods of 45 minutes each.

Theoretically, I have a social life, but since this draft has started, that has been limitted to watching The Daily Show and The Colbert Report with my roommates. And now I'm house sitting for my parents so it's reduced further to having a cat on my lap.

And wow, I slept in today, (Cat wouldn't let me get to sleep.) kinda expected some action round here. This is dissapointing. Very dissapointing.

I will say this though, if a player has multiple picks close together a list may not be appropriate. When I have my picks in the late 8th and early 9th, I may make ya'll wait for me because each pick I do make effects what players would be complimentary to what I have.

Whats the difference between Howell and Stanley ?

Both before my time, but from what I've researched:

They were both known as steady, defensively responsible blueliners. Stanley may have been a better passer, but was a far worse skater (hence the "Snowshoes" nickname) or stickhandler. It's the nature of the defence position that often what you do right gets less notice than what you do wrong, so since both guys rarely made mistakes, they may be rated lower than they should be.

Harry Howell was famous for his shotblocking, and was arguably the best ever at it. Allan Stanley most certainly had more team success, but the flipside of that is that he had far better teammates; he was Tim Horton's partner most of the time. On the other hand, the Rangers were just a horrible team during that era, and without some support, nobody can win a Cup by themselves. Emile Francis said that Howell easily logged more ice time than any other defenceman in the 60s simply because the Rangers had to keep him on the ice. Their other options were limited.

Interestingly, both players started their careers with the Rangers and suffered the same fate of being mercilessly booed by the hometown fans who thought they weren't tough enough (they called Stanley "Sonja" and Howell "Harriet"). Stanley was affected by the constant verbal abuse and actually briefly got sent to the minors (despite being the Rangers captain) before reviving his career. Howell just sucked it up and kept doing his job; as the years went by he eventually he became the most popular player on the team

LL has been hiding his head in his blue crying towel the last few days. First the Leafs blow a 4-1 lead to Pittsburgh. Then they roll over and lose 7-2 to the Rangers in a must-win. Last night they needed OT to beat downtrodden Philly.

It hasn't been a good week for Mr. All-Time Draft/the ring leader of the fabled Blue World Order.

LL, as your friend/colleague/the guy who eliminated you from last year's playoffs, please avoid all tall buildings for the first couple weeks following the Leafs elimination. Thanks, buddy.

haha, I like this tactic. There's no better way to get LL to appear than to do some Leaf bashing. Watch out though, when he gets here, which will be very soon, he'll come out swingin'!

And maybe we can get Evil Speaker to enlighten us on the Stanley vs Howell convorsation.

I may just be crumbling under pressure, once again don't know if this is a good pick, but the Winnipeg Jets select RW Rod Gilbert:

Rod Gilbert was a consistent scorer during an excellent NHL career with the New York Rangers that lasted 18 seasons. He blossomed as the right winger on the famous G-A-G Line (Goal-A-Game) with Jean Ratelle and Vic Hadfield, and although he never played on a Cup champion, he was often at his best in the post-season.

An amateur scoring star with the OHA's Guelph Biltmore Mad Hatters, Gilbert was part of a Memorial Cup triumph in 1959-60. In 1960-61, when the team was renamed the Royals, Gilbert led the OHA with 54 goals and 103 points. He came close to winning consecutive scoring titles but lost the scoring crown to Chico Maki on the last day of the 1959-60 schedule. Gilbert had just received word that he was an emergency call-up to the Rangers when disaster struck. In the last junior game of the year, he skated over some debris thrown on the ice that caused him to fall awkwardly into the boards. The impact resulted in a broken fifth vertebra in his back. To repair the damage, doctors removed bone from his left leg and used it to bind the fourth, fifth and sixth vertebrae together.

After recovering from his injury, Gilbert gained some professional seasoning with the Kitchener-Waterloo Beavers of the EPHL. On November 27, 1960, he made the most of a one-game call-up to the big leagues by assisting on Dean Prentice's third-period goal that gave New York a 3-3 tie with Chicago. Following an injury to Ken Schinkel, Gilbert was an emergency recall during the 1962 semifinal series against Toronto. He didn't look out of place and contributed five points in the four games he played with linemates Dave Balon and Johnny Wilson.

Gilbert finally made the team outright at training camp in 1962. He scored 31 points as a rookie, then registered his first of 12, 20-goal seasons in his sophomore year. Gilbert was a deceptively fast skater with an ability to elude many of the league's wiliest checkers. He was blessed with a hard shot that often dipped and he didn't shy away from battling hard in the corners or in front of the opposition net.

Meanwhile, the surgery Gilbert underwent wasn't totally successful. The bone graft loosened over time and eventually disintegrated as a result of the bodily contact so common in hockey. Prior to his third season, it was discovered that the surgically repaired vertebrae were damaged and required further attention.

He tried to play the 1965-66 schedule by wearing a special custom-fitted brace, but the extra equipment affected his breathing and, to some extent, his stamina. In January 1966 he was forced to abandon the season and undergo an operation to save his career. Gilbert came through the surgery and rehabilitation well and scored 28 goals the next year when he led the Rangers into the playoffs for the first time in five years.

It was in 1970-71 that he began playing with Ratelle and Hadfield. The line clicked and helped the Rangers set a franchise record of 107 points. The following season Gilbert set personal bests of 43 goals and 97 points and helped the team reach the Stanley Cup finals. The line made history by becoming the first on which all three members reached the 40-goal mark. Additionally, all three finished in the top five of the NHL's scoring race. Flying down the ice with elan and purpose, Gilbert caught the imagination of Manhattan's sporting public. His movie-star looks and love of the nightlife made Gilbert a natural fit in the Big Apple.

During the Fall of 1972, Gilbert represented Canada in the Summit Series against the USSR. His desire to play for Canada was so great that he ignored the many overtures that were sent his way by teams in the newly founded World Hockey Association. Between 1972 and 1977, he scored at least 75 points five straight years, but the Rangers never made it past the semifinals. On March 24, 1974, his goal against Dave Dryden of the Buffalo Sabres made him the first 300-goal scorer in the history of the New York Rangers. In 1976 Gilbert was presented the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy as a tribute to his dedication on and off the ice.

On December 12, 1976, he celebrated his 1,000th game by setting up three New York goals in a 5-2 home-ice win over the Stanley Cup champion Canadiens. Gilbert was also on hand when professionals were allowed to take part in the 1977 World Championship. He and linemates Walt McKechnie and Guy Charron helped Canada finish fourth in the historic competition. Before the start of the 1977-78 season, Gilbert was engaged in difficult contract negotiations with Rangers general manager John Ferguson. Following a 15-day holdout, Gilbert never really got going and only lasted 19 games before retiring. His output totaled 406 goals and 1,021 points along with a host of New York scoring records.

The classy winger was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1982.

First of all, spending time with family is never a crappy proposition.

I don't think you should have a problem with PM'ing the picks to a mod. Just make sure it's a mod who's around regularly, and make sure we know who it is, so that we can PM him when your turn is up. We don't want to be waiting hours for the mod to announce your pick.

Also, I believe that you have five picks in the next 40 or so. And I believe that pit, LL (once he picks in this round) and the Speaker won't pick again until after your gamut of picks is over. They're three guys that I trust, and I feel comfortable knowing that they have my back.

Regardless, I'd suggest a list of at least 15-20 players, so that the person picking for you isn't holding the bag. (Murphy2 sent me a list of 19 players).

BTW, nice grab with Gilbert. Likely the top offensive RW left on the board.

I've sent a PM to LL, so hopefully he can pick in the next little while, or else I'm going to have to find someway of figuring things out.

About Howell/Stanley : The main knack about Stanley that I found out was his skating. Remember, I have a goalie that really one weakness : probably even Wade Belak is more agile than Roy is with a stick, and outside of the crease. I already had my smooth skater, puck moving guy (+ a defensive cog, that is more of a postionnal guy than an hitting guy with Tom Johnson), so kinda needed the rugged D-Men that Howell was. And my offence will be able to generate a lot of offense on its own, and mainly to keep the puck in the opposite zone, so the need of a more "offensive" D-Men wasn't quite urging (yet). There could have been at least one very good choice amongst D-Men that could have been as good as Howell, but he wasn't as effective as Howell defensively, didn't logged as much icetime... The fact that Howell was a (relatively) disciplined D-Men (heck, playing on that Rangers squad huge minutes shouldn't have been easy on PIM'S, yet Howell kept his totals relatively low year after year) helped a lot in my choice and somewhat continued the trend of "big gentlemens" I started with ... well, my forward group.

And I think people here are wise... Hey... Howell was playing the Rangers, which is a little bit better than playing for the Sharks in 92-93, but isn't quite a great team, either. And you can also see it this way : only 4 Norris winners could be considered as defensive D-Mens ( NOT 2-way D-Mens). Howell is one of them. And he was the last to go.

or excellent second line left winger: he used to be an incredible tip-in and garbage goal expert back in his Flyers/Lindros days, in fact only Dino was better at converting the broken play and dumping in the garbage, a goaltender's nightmare... I never saw Esposito play but hear this was his forte as well.

I'd like to contradict you, but I must shut about it at this point of the draft...
But saying Dino was the only one better than The Bod is an understatement.
However, as far as "overall" skill is considered, I'd go for The Bod in this category.

It's scary to think that there have already been 4 defensemen selected from those Maple Leaf teams (Horton, Pronovost, Brewer, and Stanley). Talk about defensive depth.

I would just like to comment on my selections of Horner and Ragulin, as has been already mentioned I am one of only a handful of teams that has yet to select a goaltender and as I am not going to have the elite goaltender that other teams are going to have I am going to need a very strong defense to make up for the difference. While I thought that Stanley was already selected I feel as though Horner is a better fit given the right handed shot, and the obvious lack of depth of right handed defensemen.

Orr - Foote
Kasatonov - Horner
Ragulin - XXXXXX
XXXXXXX

This should be able to make up for any deficiencies that the team would have in net, and allow for the Canuck's chances of winning to be dramatically increased.

Also it the opinion of the Canucks that there is still a great number of solid offensive players who would be able to fit into a second line role for the Canucks and be able to do so with great ease.

wasn't the last pick made at 11:42 pm (EST)? you should be up in less than an hour if HFF doesn't pick, right?

Actually, it was 10:42AM, as HankyFourFinger was already on a 11 hours clock.

Lebda picked Carlyle at 8:42pm PST, putting vancity on his 10 hr clock. That pick expired at 6:42am and I imagine he's now on a 9 hr clock

So Hanky on his 11hr clock has until 5:42pm PST to make his pick.

The confusion from me came when I woke up this morning, stumbled over to the computer and had a couple messages from BM. I read the one saying I'm up and made a pick then read the other message from BM saying he made a mistake and I wasn't up until after HFF.

I feel VERY fortunate to be able to take this player to anchor my blueline. I feel he's better than 3 to 4 defenseman already taken, and that no player still available can bring the package of defensive abilities, toughness and bodychecking he can.

A playoff performer, a leader, two time Stanley Cup winner, two time first and second all-star team defense and the runner-up for the Hart trophy in 1932, the Detroit Falcons are very proud to take, D Ching Johnson

Johnson is an awesome defenseman, but what scared me away from him was that he was a downright dreadful skater.

I trully think that's his only blatant flaw. But I think he was able to counterfeit that big flaw by his excellent positionning. He shutdown some big teams in the playoffs. In the finals in 1933, he was able to shutdown the ''kid line'', one of the most lethal team in history. He will maybe have some problems against guys with tremendous speed like Cournoyer, but Im sure he will contain any guys with ''good'' speed. I feel very fortunate to have him as my number three defenseman.

Murphy

Irvine "Ace" Bailey, the one who led the league in scoring in 1929, was an LW. And a good one at that. I was looking to pick him up later in the draft as my No. 2/4 LW. Can play a finisher or a physical role. I had him in the fifth draft.

There's also Garnet "Ace" Bailey - the guy who died in the September 11 terrorist attack. I'm not sure what position he played.

If we did one round with an average of 15 mins between picks it would still be 7 hours to do a round so I highly doubt we'd get much beyond that anyways.

We did this in draft #6 or was it minor draft #5? I can't remember. It worked pretty well but like this, it was done with late notice and a couple gm's didn't make it in time and were a little choked.

I'd just like to see this draft pick up a bit, it's been a crawl this week. There's been times when 10-12 gms are on at one time and if we make an effort tomorrow we could do the same. If you know your possibly up in 3-4 hrs then make an effort to check in or forward a list.

I used to submit lists in a FHL draft I couldn't attend due to work, and I had instructions like: "If the first four on my d-man list are gone then take the highest of the top-3 centres available from my centres list, and if all four d-men and all three centres are gone, then take the highest of the many left wingers on my list."

As long as you stipulate for every condition clearly, it's relatively simple. Worked like a charm for me. Was fun to do too!

The New Jersey Devils are pleased to select a five time Soviet League scoring leader and a sound 2-way forward known for outstanding physical play

Vladimir Petrov (http://www.1972summitseries.com/petrov.html)

Vladimir Petrov obviously belongs to the list of the glorious centers in the Soviet hockey history. He was a vital playmaker of the legendary Mikhailov-Petrov-Kharlamov line in Team USSR and Red Army Club.

Petrov established himself as a sound 2-way forward. He was a very fine powerplay and penaltykilling player. His skill set included slick playmaking, incredible chemistry with his wings, top level 1-on-1 mastery and an extremely powerful and accurate splashot that led Petrov to many scoring titles.

In defense, he was known for outstanding physical play equal to the level of the best Soviet blueliners. - The Summit in 72 (http://www.chidlovski.com/personal/1972/yroster/ru16.htm)

Petrov himself won the scoring title in the World Championships four times. 1973 (34 pts in 10 games), 1975 (19pts in 10 games - tied), 1977 (21pts in 10 games) and 1979 (15pts in 8 games). Petrov still holds the record for most goals, assists and points in one tournament (1973). He was also a four time All-Star in the World Championships.

Petrov of course wasn't just a dominant force on the international scene. He and his linemates were as dominant in the Soviet league. Petrov himself won the scoring title in 1969-70 (51 goals in 44 games), 1972-73 (27+22=49 in 32 games), 1974-75 (27+26 =53 in 36 games), 1977-78 (28+28=56 in 36 games) and 1978-79 (26+37 =63 in 44 games). He's the last player to have scored over 50 goals in a season. Only Vsevolod Bobrov, Venjamin Alexandrov and Alexander Yakushev have scored over 50 goals in a season. All in all Petrov scored 370 goals in 553 league games. - 1972 Summit Series

"By Soviet standards I'd always been considered an offensive centerman. Phil Esposito and Bobby Clarke forced me to play a more defensive style. The experience made me a better all around player." - Vladimir Petrov

The Trail Smoke Eaters are pleased to select the player who we believe is the best defensive RW in the draft, and the No. 2 defensive winger, after Bob Gainey. He will be a key piece of our two-way line:

RW Claude Provost

Career highlights:

*Nine-time Stanley Cup champion (1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1965, 1966, 1968 and 1969)
*Winner of the inaugural Bill Masterton Trophy in 1968
*First-team all-star RW in 1965
*A bizarre but very effective skater who was able to keep up with the top offensive players in the day.
*A clean but very determined player who shadowed the opposition's top players and rates among the top defensive forwards ever.
*Also very effective offensively with two 30-goal seasons and multiple 50-point seasons.

Trail's a great town. Just ask my old friend Normie Lenardon, who was part of the world championship team in 1961. (I'm fairly confident that he won't be picked in this draft). Or MLB all-star Jason Bay.

First of all, I never want to see "slave driver" and "Grant Fuhr" mentioned in the same sentence ever again. He was thrilled to be here last draft, and he's thrilled to be here again. Just for that, he promised wipe you out should we meet in the playoffs. (And we're all hoping for that).

If you want to be part of a nice little team, where expectations, hard work, intensity and team play are foreign concepts, there are lots of those teams in this league.

If you want to work hard, thrive under heavy expectations, but, in the end, have a legit shot at a championship, compete in the toughest division of the draft, and enjoy the most fulfilling and rewarding year of your career, then Trail's the place to be. After a couple drafts, guys know what they're getting into when they're drafted by the Smokies.

But if Trail makes the playoffs the Oil are looking forward to the battle.

memo to self: Draft a goalie!
It might not have been what you meant, but you had to know I was going to respond to that one. You left yourself a little wide open.

VCL is coming out of this with best LW and C corps in the league right now. Shutt, Howe and Bailey at LW, Sakic and Yzerman at C.

As the 16th round selection involved has already been traded, the deal has been changed to

To VanI (Vegas) : 8th (200), 8th (208), 21st, 22nd, 23rd

To Me (Jets) : 11th , 14th, 15th, 17th, 19th

geez, this trade is robbery! Nice one.

Nice pick, Primeau is one of those guys (along with Nighbor) who were great playmakers in the early game but always seem to too late in these drafts.

Had him in the last draft. Great pick. (We've had a lot of those tonight). Brilliant playmaking centre, the best centre still on the board, and better than a lot of the offensive centres selected ahead of him.

I was surprised to see him fall. I was prepared to go a different direction but couldn't convince myself to pass with this pick.

Awesome pick. I never understood why his two linemates seem to always get drafted before him. One of the greatest passers ever.

Damn, I was hoping Primeau would fall as well.

I could do a live draft, but only from 12 to 3 or so tomorrow (in EST) I will be sure to be online then tomorrow.

Looks like I'll be gone for most of tomorrow (aft/even) after all so if you guys do decide to do one I'll work on some sort of list in the morning tomorrow. Hopefully my snake pick comes around before then.

Geez!

Olmstead and Flaman were my shortlist for my next pick.

Uggh.

Fielding offers to trade down.

I need more research.

Seems like the live draft started tonight, been more picks tonight than all week.

The Adam Oates of his era. Led the league in assists three times (beating out Frank Boucher!), killed penalties and stayed out of the penalty box. Primeau's strengths should mesh well with Ciccarelli, who needs somebody skilled to feed him the puck in close. Despite a lack of size/grit, I consider Primeau an ideal second line center.

Anybody who is up soon can send me their picks, I'll be around for another 2-3 hours. (Also let me know if I can send your picks to another GM if we don't get to you tonight).

The Edmonton Oilers trade their 204th & 15th round pick to the St Louis Eagles for their 196th & 20th round pick.

Nalyd to confirm.

If my pick doesn't roll around by mid afternoon today anybody want to take a list from me. I will also need to do something similar to what Nalyd did as well if y'all decide to do some live rounds although I have a long way between picks after my next one. LMK.

So are we forging ahead with this live draft or not? Or are we going to cross our fingers that everyone's timing will be on, and we might be able to roll through 10-15 picks over the next couple of days?

I'm taking off in a bit, and will be back this afternoon. I'll send a list to Murphy2, since he doesn't pick again this round (I think) just in case.

It was wishful thinking, but I was hoping Olmstead would fall

Murphy

As I went searching for my next pick last night he seemed like the perfect fit for Lindsay & Stewart. I had to have him there and couldn't risk waiting my turn.

Yeah that fits nice. But imagine a power forward for Foppa and Firsov. Now, that would have been a nice fit. :D

No kidding, he seems like the perfect guy to create space out there. With a nickname like 'Punch' you've got to be tough. There are going to be elbows flying from everywhere on that line though. :D
