You still can't think of one.... because according to, Berard was top-4 in ES TOI/game every season he played from 1998 to 2004, which is 6 seasons in a row.

He was top-2 in overall ice time 5 times.

A lot goes into those decisions, including things that have nothing to do with hockey.
That's if you believe his information. The numbers I found on were not even close to what he provided in his post.

That is what he should remain. A named undrafted player.

Keith Brown is now available and dropped. Drew Doughty "was" selected at pick #187 by Billy.
He was not selected, because the rules say he in not eligible. We made a mistake, and we know better for next draft. Stacking mistake upon mistake doesn't help.

If this actually goes through, you should probably start looking for somebody to take over my vacant GM spot.....
