Help Me with 1974-75 Defenseman Pairings
Gonna replay some games from this season on a board game and although this was in my prime time as a young fan I'm finding my memory for defense pairings isn't what it used to be. Who played together? Or list them in 1-5 depth order. If a team isn't listed, I've already got them covered.
I don't know if anyone wants to even attempt Detroit or Washington as they made so many trades that few d-men played close to a full season.
Murray/Gibbs (traded for each other mid-season)
Kearns (some of these were traded)
Tallon/Magnuson (half-seasons each)
Bialowas/Gibbs (traded for each other)
Kansas City - another team that was a mess with only 3 d-men playing close to a full season.
For Pittsburgh, I think Dave Burrows and Ron Stackhouse were the main pair around this time. Except when injuries occurred then they were split up so one of them was always on the ice.
If I had to take a good stab at it...
I can check some of my THN issues from that season to see if they list the line combos. I know they did that in the late 80's/early 90's and on, but not sure if they did that for the 70's as well.
Forgot I had a couple of THN issues I bought off Ebay (because I never saved my originals!) and I have one from Jan.17, 1975. On the Roster chart, it appears some teams have their d-men listed in alphabetical order while others are not. At first I thought the ones that weren't alphabetical were listed in order of depth, but then there's Buffalo with the d-men in this order: Carriere, Fogolin, Hajt, Korab, Guevremont, Schoenfeld... and certainly Schoeny was not the 6th d-man!
Seals, I have that "estimated ATOI" spreadsheet that's floating around...would it help you at all if I posted the order of their ES TOI or ATOI as it was estimated by the fine people that made this spreadsheet? It's not quite pairings, but it's a depth chart...or maybe you have this sheet? Or want it?
Sure, I'd like to receive that spreadsheet.
