I was looking at Mortson before you picked him, but I still had Harper above him, just because we needed a shutdown guy, badly. And it may have been a bit too early to pick him, but I highly doubt he would've lasted until oour next picks.

He wouldn't have lasted past my pick at 261.

Well, it's been 10 hours so I guess I'll go ahead and skip over LL to get to my pick.

In a move that I'm sure everyone saw coming, The Aurora Tigers select:

Ken Hodge



A two-time first team allstar, great in the corners, and a key part of two Stanley Cups. And most importantly, he has great chemistry with Esposito and Cashman (this line gets re-united every draft, don't they?).

An interesting tidbit I found from the 1971 Bruins yearbook:

One of four Bruins to collect 100 or more points last season. .. ken Hodge amassed a total of 105. Notable, because he was the only one of the quartet who didn't play regularly on the power play. . . That, teammate Phil Esposito estimates, is worth 30 points at least. . A big, strapping fellow, Hodge moves efficiently on the ice and he's a rough man to meet in the corners ... Ken bounced back from a 25 goal season in 1969-70 to score 43 last Winter. . . These, along with his record-breaking 65 assists for an N.H.L. right winger, combined to give him a record 105 points, also for a right winger. . . He also was an all-star choice for the first time.

I was actually hoping to land Mullen or Recchi for that spot (both of them were drafted later than this last time)...but hey, I figured I might as well reunite the line as my plan C.

Detroit Falcons pick

With our 10th selection, the 266th overall, the Detroit Falcons are proud to select a 3-time Lady Bing winner, a clever scorer and a great individual who retired in 1947 after his most brilliant offensive season, only two return two years later for a single game, where he managed a goal and an assist in a Boston victory: Right Winger Bobby Bauer.



Stanley Cup (1939, 1941)
Lady Byng Memorial Trophy (1940, 1941, 1947)
Second All-Star Team Right Wing (1939, 1940, 1941, 1947)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

With that selection, the Detroit Falcons has reunite one of the best 2-Way trio of All-Time who managed to finish 1-2-3 in scoring in the 1939-40 season and were the backbone of two championship in 1939 and 1941. A trio who had to play against the opponent better player, especially come playoff time: the KRAUT Line

Thanks MXD for making my pick.

I would also like to point out that all three members of the Kraut line gave their hockey prime to battle in the WWII and protect our freedom.

They were also mainly playing in the defensive zone come playoff time, as there first priority was to defend against the opposing team best players.

You can't only look at stats when you look at the career of ''The Krauts''. They were amazing players and amazing individuals and I'm very happy to have been able to reunite these players.

You're short one player, but close enough.

Zdeno Chara the tallest person ever to play in the NHL.Chara plays a complete game plays a mean uncompromising crease -clearer who is a super human mamoth on the ice using his size and reach to spoil the enemies attack. He has a powerful shot and is a efficent puckmoving defenceman when he uses his speed and his increasing mobility. He oisalso a force when it comes to the powerplay where he takes on the roll of theimmovable slot man.
sorry all had a hot date after work

Wow, slow one today.

Hollett is a guy Nalyd and I were looking at in the 8th. He's quite useful for several reasons, not the least of which being his outstanding offensive abilities (especially goal-scoring), his right-handed shot, his breakaway skating and the fact that he was actually a pretty big guy for his time (5'11" 180 lbs. according to the hockeydb listing). We liked Cameron better, of course (I think the numbers speak for themselves), but I really thought Hollett would rise and is good value going in the 10th again. Two more things: first, going by his career progression, he was clearly peaking before the war started, so the charge that WWII inflated his stats is somewhat off the mark. Second, I think he belongs in the HHOF - one of the few issues about which Don Cherry and I see eye-to-eye.

I'm not in love with the quote you used on Hollett, though, simply because it ridiculously leaves out many great early offensive defensemen and suggests that the Flash was the first puck-rushing blueliner. I know you don't believe that, but I think that quote is pretty bad, all the same. Hollett was the first to 20 goals (during WWII), but Harry Cameron put in 18 in 24 games when Hollett was still a child, and guys like Cyclone Taylor, Sprague Cleghorn, King Clancy, George Boucher, et al. deserve a mention in any discussion of the development of the offensive defenseman before Orr, whose career actually changed the game far less than the average hockey fan believes.

- Jack Darragh in the 10th, eh? It would be hard to top ten rounds as the biggest jump of the draft.

With our 11th selection, the 268th overall, the Detroit Falcons are please and thrill to select defenseman Jean-Guy Talbot.

His consistent play at both ends of the ice was crucial when the Habs had to replace the likes of Rocket Richard, Doug Harvey, and Bernie Geoffrion.

Gotta say I'm very surprise he lasted that long, especially considering that defenseman are taken very high in this draft.

I'm pretty surprised we stopped there given that FI2 is picking 2 out of 3.

Who can take a shortlist for this morning, I'm going to bed soon.

Wait, so I'm sharing mod duty here now? pfft!

It will make it easier to censor mentions of undrafted players, which is about all I do...

Hey all.
I am going to be gone away this weekend, and whether or not I have access to a computer is still a mystery. I don't make my next pick until 295, so I think sending a long list might not be a good idea. Here's the best option for everyone, I think. If, while I'm gone, my pick comes up, PM me, and if I don't pick within 3 hours, than you can skip me, and I will make my selection when I get back. No worries on my part. Hopefully you guys will be alright with this, and if not, then you can work something out among yourselves. I'm totally fine with that as well. Anyway, have a good weekend everybody, and happy drafting.
