The Regina Pat Habs select G Richard Brodeur and Don Smith.

Brodeur, nicknamed King Richard, is of course best known for absolutely carrying the '82 Canucks to the finals. I didn't know about Smith, but here's what seventies has to say, and he'll probably elaborate further later.

Quote:
He [Smith] was a rover from the 1908-1920 period. Scored 166 goals in 165 top-level games in Manitoba League, OPHL, NHA, PCHA, and NHL. For whatever reason, he has been forgotten. Career cut off by WW1. My recent goalscoring analysis (see HOH thread) has him as 1 top-5, 2 top-10, 4 top-15, 5 top-20.
