All-time NEXT-BEST... draft sign-up thread
 
There have been three all-time drafts of the best ever players, and yet there are many great players deserving of selection as among the best, or at least, the next best.

So let's have another draft to determine "The All-time Next-Best".

Rules:

All of the players selected in the first three all-time drafts are off limits (a complete list will be posted as soon as the x3 draft is finished).

Otherwise, the rules are pretty much the same as the last all-time draft except there's only a 12-hour clock.

G.M.s of all-time drafts are guaranteed a spot and rights to their NHL team name if they wish to keep with the same franchise.

* = spot reserved for sure

(The next priority will go to guys I've invited by PM)

Sign-up:

1. Victoria Aristocrats - VanIslander *
2. Thunder Bay Steamers - Dr. Moses *
3. xxxxxxxxxxxxx - Spitfire11 *
4. Brampton Blue Devils - BuppY
5. Toronto Maple Leafs - Leaf Lander *
6. St. Louis Blues - Bluebleeder *
7. Vancouver Millionaires - jtuzzi21
8. Macon Whoopee - Mr. Bugg
9. Seattle Metropolitans - kruezer *
10. Kootenay Ice - Evil Sather *
11. Colorado Rockies - BM67 *
12. Kelowna Rockets - Morrison_Rulz
13. Winnipeg Jets - RandomCanuckFan
14. Montreal Habs - Kovalev10
15. Quebec Nordiques - Benton Fraser *
16. Edmonton Roadrunners - Murphy2 *
17. Dukla Trencin - 12# Peter Bondra
18. Durham Hornets - GB *
19. Ottawa 67s - reckoning
20. Saskatoon Blues - Hockey Outsider *
21. Mannheim Adler - Wisent
22.
23.
24.
25.
26.
27.
28.
29.
30.

Draft order will be randomly determined after everyone's signed up.

The draft will begin next Saturday.

Well, I'll sign-up...

Are these like farm teams I guess.

Call my squad the Thunder Bay Steamers

Spitfire11 05-14-2005 06:11 PM

I'll be in...give me some time to think of a name though

VanIslander 05-14-2005 06:12 PM

The teams are like farm teams, sort of. Imagine the players picked in the three all-time best drafts were unavailable. What players would you choose to make the best team possible from among the previously undrafted?

Some guys to be drafted should be playing with the best ever, others are indeed best only among those of the second-tier of all time.

There are plenty of guys who could be considered sleepers or steals, as deserving of promotion to the best-ever. Many have been just great players worthy of some recognition.

BuppY 05-14-2005 06:45 PM

I'll be Brampton Blue Devils. :D

G.M.s of any of the three previous all-time drafts have PRIORITY and are guaranteed a spot.

To be clear, I added an asterix * after those who it applies to.

But,... there will be spots for fresh blood (I've PM'd a few committed G.M.s from other drafts at HFboards, who would be valuable if they decided to join).

I'll PM every G.M. of the previous all-time drafts, and give them a few days to respond to claim a spot.

BlueBleeder 05-14-2005 06:58 PM

St Louis Blues

Leaf Lander 05-14-2005 07:03 PM

there is no way we can have 30 GM's in this draft

We could end up going with 20.

We'll see.

There will be a 7-day recruitment period, starting today, and the draft will begin next weekend. And there are a lot of good players that have had several great seasons, even if not quite HOF worthy.

hockeyfan125 05-14-2005 07:17 PM

Vancouver Millionaires, please. :)

20 is better. With 30, you always have drifters and guys who drop out.

hfboardsuser 05-14-2005 07:21 PM

I'll have the Macon Whoopee :D

kruezer 05-14-2005 07:31 PM

I'll be in again with the Seattle Metropolitans.

Evil Sather 05-14-2005 07:40 PM

I guess I'll grab the Kootenay Ice... what a great name.

BM67 05-14-2005 07:56 PM

OK. I'll take the Colorado Rockies as my team.

TomahawkSniper 05-14-2005 08:06 PM

I'll be the Kelowna Rockets.

Hey, that ECHL team is only one or two players away from a Cup... provided I can sign Jesus. However, he's still kind of miffed about the last time a group of people hung him out to dry.

RandomCanuckFan 05-14-2005 10:33 PM

I'll be the Winnipeg Jets

Leaf Lander 05-14-2005 10:46 PM

who are these people?

KOVALEV10* 05-14-2005 11:22 PM

Hey I'd love to get in.. call my team the "Montreal MaHabs" !! This is so great.. I've been waiting to get in a draft for a year!

Frightened Inmate #2 05-14-2005 11:25 PM

I really think this should be just open to the last all time draft. No offense I am sure that people are great hockey minds, but at the same time it would be more of a farm team based system, which would be much more interesting, but I am in either way.

Leaf Lander 05-14-2005 11:44 PM

i myself do not want more then 15 gm's

imagine 6 gms who tahe 24 hrs to make a pick


instead of the 2 or 3 that we got lol

Murphy 05-14-2005 11:50 PM

I'm in, names have to be of a professional team?

In sticking with the farm team theme, I'll be the Edmonton Roadrunners.
