While he came close to personal and team success, it wasn't until 1939-40 when everything fell into place for Kerr. He won the Vezina Trophy, was elected to the First All-Star team, took the team on a league-record 19-game unbeaten streak, played all 48 games for the Blueshirts, and led the Rangers to a Stanley Cup victory over Toronto.

Quote:

Roy Conacher: -Roy, quiet and modest about his talents, may have been the most naturally gifted hockey player in the family.

He began skating earlier than his brothers and was therefore much smoother on the ice. He combined speed with strength and was a resourceful goal scorer. But his career was interrupted by his service in the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II, preventing him from playing in his prime and perhaps establishing himself as the third Conacher superstar in professional hockey.

Bill Cowley, a future Hall of Famer whose style meshed perfectly with the talented Conacher's goal-scoring touch and ability to anticipate plays. Conacher led the league with 26 goals in 47 games in his first season - the first rookie to ever accomplish the feat, a record that wasn't broken until Teemu Selanne came along more than 50 years later.

Led the NHL in goals as a rookie, and won the Art Ross in 49
He was the brother of hockey legends Charlie and Lionel conacher
Roy Conacher, LW -Legends of Hockey Bio


Quote:

Sean Burke: A competitive hybrid-style goalie with great size and wingspan, Burke played deep in the net and always stayed square to the shooter and he worked tirelessly on his control flexability and rebound control. Sean was always a workhorse starting goalie who has played almost 800 nhl career games he was one of the league's biggest puck-stoppers at 6-4, 211 pounds. Used his big frame to play an effective stand-up style. He played with savvy and leadership qualities.

He joined the Canadian National Team. He backstopped Canada to 46 victories over two seasons then shared the goalkeeping responsibilities with Andy Moog at the 1988 Calgary Olympics. Following Canada's fourth place finish, Burke joined the Devils and caught fire at the right time. He posted a 10-1 record down the stretch and helped New Jersey make the playoffs on the last night of the regular season. In the playoffs, he was superb as the young club made it all the way to the seventh game of the semi-finals.


Sean also backstopped NJ to the conference finals in 88 and played in the 88 and 92 Olympics. He has over 300 career wins and over 30 career nhl shutouts. backstopped the cabadian olympic squad to a silver medal at the 1992 Albertville Olympics. He also lead Team Canada to gold at the 2003 World Championship.

Aside from his Olympic expriences and the 2003 World Championships, Burke has represented his homeland at the 1986 World Juniors and four other times at the World Championships (1987, 1989, 1991 and 1997)

The Devils select a multi-positional and all-around threat in a member of the dreaded S Line

Reginald "Hooley" Smith

Quote:

Forward Hooley Smith excelled at several facets of the game during his 17 years in the NHL. A prolific scorer, he retired in 1941 as one of the few skaters to reach the 200-goal mark. Smith was also considered a dogged checker and one of the most physically imposing combatants in the league.

Detroit takes back-to-back 50 goal scorer LW Charlie Simmer

Leaf Lander 01-12-2006 11:36 PM

The Marlies select defenders Barilko Bill and Jimmy Thomson

Quote:

He was a real team guy. He kept everyone's spirits up the dressing room.

Barilko was pretty raw when he came up with the Leafs. He was a real diamond in the rough, but his game got a lot of polishing from coaches Hap Day and Joe Primeau (who replaced Day to start the 1950-51 season). They brought Barilko along and made him into one of the best defensemen at the time. He was quite a hitter, after all you have to be a good hitter to get the nickname "Bashin'" Bill.

Barilko played during a defensive era but he used his speed to pick his spots to rush the puck up the ice to help toronto on offense. He hit every opponent with equal force and was a rock on Toronto's blueline. In his five NHL seasons, he won four Stanley Cups, scoring, arguably the most dramatic Stanley Cup winning goal.
4 Stanley Cups
Played in NHL All-Star Game (1947, 1948, 1949)
Bill Barilko -Legends of Hockey Bio


Quote:

Jimmy Thomson was a rugged defenseman and team leader who spent nearly 800 games in the NHL during the 40s and 50s. In addition to his feisty nature he was a fine passer who often helped his club's transition game by carrying the puck up ice efficiently.

In all, "Jeems" supplied toughness and leadership on the Toronto defense for eleven seasons. He was regarded as one of the league's toughest foes and placed on the NHL Second All-Star team in 1951 and 1952. He also participated in seven All-Star Games and was an integral part of Stanley Cup wins in 1947, 1948, 1949 and 1951. During the 1956-57 season he spent time as the Leaf's captain. Prior to the 1957-58 schedule, Thomson was traded to the Chicago Black Hawks for cash. The deal was a result of Thomson's involvement with Ted Lindsay's attempt to found a player's association

BM67 01-13-2006 09:03 AM

The Devils are pleased to select the only defenseman with 2 NHL playoff hat tricks

Paul Reinhart

Quote:

As a Flame, Reinhart made a leap directly to the pro ranks, quickly establishing himself as a superior two-way defender with versatility to boot. Although he preferred his blueline duties, he sometimes played on a forward line where some have claimed that 100-point seasons were his for the taking.

But nonetheless, as a rearguard he showed plenty of offensive spark, especially setting up goals. He was also a very strong playoff performer, netting 77 points in 83 contests over the course of his eleven-year career.
