Congrats to chaos for taking Allan "Eagle Eye" Cameron. I had him 4th on my list of All-Star defensemen, but I should have had him first. Glad the rest of you got it right. Here is a bit more about him from when I took him as a 7th D in MLD9:

He was quite simply the most complete player of the 1880's. His genius for the two-way game was soon the talk of the circuit. According to newsmen, "nothing escaped Cameron's eyes." his defensive abilities were every bit as sharp as *******'s and possibly the finest in the AHAC.
