Melville selects Bobby Guindon, LW

Guindon is noted by to have been an "important two-way forward" and he contributed to a ton of WHA team success; namely, four Avco Cups.


- has some defensive acumen
- 0.67 PPG in the playoffs in the WHA
- Four Avco Cups, also a two-time finalist, in just 7 seasons. Can all that team success be brushed away as luck, or right-place-right-time?
- 1978 WHA Playoff MVP though outscored by Hedberg and Nilsson.

Why not:

- Very underwhelming offensively, career 0.55 PPG in the WHA
- faded instantly at age 29 upon merger of NHL and WHA
- more info substantiating his defense would be great.
