There are not enough of these for a three man draft without doing heavy research into world championship B pools of history, and barely enough for two.

We didn’t bother with coaches as I have no idea who we’d even take. Any ideas?

Tom Anderson (UK) – Tommy Dunderdale (OZ) – Ken Hodge (UK)
Marco Sturm (GER) – Jim McFadden (UK) – Owen Nolan (UK)
Adam Brown (UK) – Walt Tkaczuk (GER) – Willi Plett (PAR)
Craig Adams (BRU) – Richard Park (KOR) – Rudi Ball (GER)

Rod Langway (TAI) – Joe Hall (UK)
Steve Smith (UK) – Jack Evans (UK)
Dunc Munro (UK) – Willie Huber (UK)

Chuck Gardiner (UK)
Olaf Kolzig (SAF)

Spares: Poul Popiel (DEN), Ed Kea (NED), Gord Pettinger (UK), Espen Knutsen (NOR)


Dany Heatley (GER) – Anze Kopitar (SLV) – Steve Thomas (UK)
Tomas Vanek (AUS) – Ivan Boldirev (YUG) – Paul MacLean (FRA)
Jochen Hecht (GER) – Mikhail Grabovski (GER) – Peter Lee (UK)
Wojtek Wolski (POL)– Jim Conacher (UK) – Mariusz Czerkawski (POL)

Mark Hardy (SUI) – Robyn Regehr (BRA)
Christian Ehrhoff (GER) – Mark Streit (SUI)
Uwe Krupp (GER) – Alex Smith (UK)

Byron Dafoe (UK)
Cristobal Huet (FRA)

Spares: Dennis Seidenberg (GER), Marcel Goc (GER), Roman Josi (SUI), Grahame Townshend (JAM)

And a little shout out to the taxi squad of players left on the table:

Dieter Hegen (GER) – Doru Tureanu (ROM) – Kryzystof Oliwa (POL)
Rick Chartraw (VEN) – Brian Glynn (GER)
Wilf Cude (UK)
add a spare to that taxi squad. Rumun Ndur (NIG)
