How was Carson Cooper not taken? I could have sworn his name was mentioned.

Greg GIlbert = great pick. I definitely had my eye on him.

The Regina Potholes select for today, D Bob Rouse. Rouse was a defensive rock whose 1994 defection from Toronto via free agency is still blamed as the turning point in the Leafs' defensive game. Rouse put together two solid playoff runs in 1993 and 1994 with the Leafs, and then two more in 1995 and 1996 with the Red Wings, before hwlping them win the cup in 1997 and 1998, an amazing six straight years of helping his teams win at least two playoff runs, playing 106 playoff games in that stretch.

Rouse was double tough. He could punish you with a bodycheck, with cross checks and slashes in the crease, or just by dropping the gloves and pounding you. With just 1559 career penalty minutes in 1061 games and 91 career NHL fights, he was not the type to take an inordinate amount of minor penalties.
