Thing is, even if you optimistically credit Schmidt with his usual 5th-10th-place finishes for those seasons, he's still the weakest offensively of that bunch.

how long do you think Mario had cancer for?

In fact, the year in which he had Cancer is one of his biggest resume-building years. To my knowledge, no one says "well, he only played 60 games that year, not 84" and to GMs like you, it's still a 1st place finish regardless.

I was gonna ask, "but did he even really fight?" but Sturm answered that one for me.

I have lurked these various drafts for four years now and it has been a real pleasure for certain. Aside from the bond I share with my father over hockey, these drafts have probably grown my love for the game more than anything else.

I know it's just a fun hobby on an internet message board, but you guys are a real service to the game. I sincerely thank you for taking the time to partake in these drafts.
I appreciate that.
