Atd#8-MLII ***The All-Time AAA Draft *** (picks, rosters, everything in this thread)

The All-Time AAA Draft

All players not picked in ATD#8 and Atd#8-ML are draftable (no time period requirements)

Since this will be the equivalent of the ECHL or European leagues, players selected in the draft won't be expected to make up the entire roster. We will draft 12 guys, and the remaining member of the team will be assumed to be career minor league, non-alltime scrubs.

12 players to be picked: 6 forwards, 3 defensemen, 1 goalie and 2 free picks (goalie depth, role player, extra centers, coach, whatever).

NO DRAFT ORDER. At this stage that might be splitting hairs. Instead, ONE draft pick per team per day for 12 days. That way you can log on and do it at your convenience! The draft day starts at 9:00 a.m. (Eastern). So you can pick at the start of your day, and pick near the start of every round; or else pick in the evening, near the end of every round. Whenever. One pick per day. Miss a pick and indeed you can double up the next day, no problem.

After the draft we will open up voting to have a special award to the g.m. who is best at assembling the deepest pool of talent (The Lou Lamourello Trophy? what hockey mind is among the best at it?). We could also have an all-star team of best call-ups (all-time noteworthy three forwards, two defensemen and goalie from among all those in the draft).

ST. CATHARINES FALCONS


forwards (6): Pelle Eklund (C), Art Jackson (C), Charley McVeigh (LW), Rejean Houle (RW), Wayne Babych (RW), Norman 'Dutch' Gainor (LW)
defence (3): Keith Brown, Mike McEwen, Joel Quenneville
goalie (1): Wayne Stephenson
extras (2): Bill Fairbairn (RW), Gaetan Duchesne (LW)

Pelle Eklund (C): Blessed with skating, puckhandling and passing skills in 1983-84 Eklund won an Olympic bronze medal, a Canada Cup second place finish, a Swedish Elite League championship, a Swedish Golden Puck award as player of the year, and the nod as the Athlete of the Year in all of Sweden. In the NHL, Eklund became a powerplay and penalty kill specialist for the Flyers.

Art Jackson (C): In Boston, Jackson became a solid playmaker and checker playing as the third centre behind Bill Cowley and Milt Schmidt. He registered consecutive 20-goal seasons in 1942-43 and 1943-44 playing on a line with Cowley and Herb Cain. He recorded 301 points in 468 NHL games.

Keith Brown (D): A steady two-way performer for 16 NHL seasons he was equally proficient at looking after matters in his own zone and contributing on offence. A die-hard competitor, he reached double figures in goals twice and helped Chicago reach the Stanley Cup finals in 1992 and the semi-finals in 1982, 1983, 1985, and 1989

Charley McVeigh (LW): A retro Selke Award winner, McVeigh was a consistent two-way player for nearly 400 games in the 1920s and '30s. He managed to hit double figures in goals four times despite playing on weak teams for most of his career. His nine seasons in the NHL included 397 games played, 84 goals, and 88 assists

Rejean Houle (RW): First overall draft pick in 1969, averaged two ppg in junior (1969) scoring 53 goals and 55 assists in 54 games for 108 points, winning a Memorial Cup in 1969. Won five Stanley Cups (1971, 1972, 1977, 1978, 1979) in 11 years with Montreal. Recorded 408 points in 635 NHL games and, 257 points in 214 WHA games.

Norman ‘Dutch’ Gainor (LW): He played four years in Beantown and his most productive NHL season occurred in 1929-30 when he tallied 18 goals and 49 points in 42 games. Gainor was plagued with the worst set of varicose veins known to mankind. But cosmetic appearance never seemed to bother Gainor, and it definitely did not effect his play as he was considered one of the top left wingers in the NHL in the mid to late 1920s. In 246 NHL games Gainor scored 51 goals and 107 points.

Wayne Babych (RW): Chosen 3rd overall in the 1978 Amateur Draft, the St. Louis Blues had big plans for the right winger, and he responded with 27 goals in his rookie year of 1978-79. Babych followed that up with a 26-goal outing the next year before exploding for 54 goals and 96 points in 1980-81. 438 points in 519 NHL games.

Mike McEwen (D): A talented offensive defenceman who played over 700 NHL games in the 1970s and '80s. He was a fine passer with an accurate shot but often clashed with coaches since he was somewhat of a free spirit. Won a Memorial Cup in 1975, accumulating 181 points in three junior seasons. During the 1976-77 season, McEwen impressed as a rookie with 43 points though his defensive zone coverage was spotty. Two years later, he scored a personal-high 20 goals and helped the Blueshirts reach the Stanley Cup finals. Won three Stanley Cups (1981, 1982, 1983) with the New York Islanders.

Bill ‘Bulldog’ Fairbairn (RW): An exemplary two-way forward who, in 658 career games, recorded four-20 goal seasons. Originally, slated to be a checker, In 1969-70 Fairbairn impressed as a rookie with 23 goals and 56 points, forming the ‘Bulldog Line’ with Dave Balon and Walt Tkaczuk. Recorded 423 points in 658 NHL games.

Joel Quenneville (D): Joel survived through 13 NHL seasons through intelligence and dependability and played a conservative and unspectacular defensive game at the NHL level, always making the safe play. Twice named the Whalers most valuable defenseman (1985 and 1986) he played a big role in helping Hartford win the Adams Division championship in 1987. He scored 54 goals and 190 points in 803 games, but his true worth was helping to develop young defensemen and quietly taking care of his own end.

Gaetan Duchesne (LW): A hard-working, responsible, defensively-oriented player Duchesne's best individual season was in 1986-87 in which he netted 17 goals and 35 assists for 52 points. The pinnacle of his career occurred in the 1991 playoffs when the North Stars shocked the hockey world by advancing all the way to the Stanley Cup finals. Gaetan Duchesne played in 1,028 games, scored 179 goals and 254 assists for 433 points.

Wayne Stephenson (G): Spent the majority of his young career with the Canadian National Team playing in several tournaments such as the World Championships in both 1967 and 1969, as well as the 1968 Olympics where he won a bronze medal. Represented the Flyers at the NHL All-Star Game in both 1976 and 1978. In 328 games, Stephenson recorded 146 wins and 14 shutouts, including 40 wins in the 1975-76 season, winning the Stanley Cup in 1975.

Chicago Cougars

Danny Lewicki-Mike Walton-Bill Hicke
Errol Thompson-Don Raleigh-Chico Maki
Larry Wilson-Tom Webster

Jack Evans-Leo Reise Sr
Al Dewsbury

Joe Daley





d Jack "Tex" Evans. First played in the NHL in 1948, Spent 7 full seasons with the Rangers and 5 with the Blackhawks. A member of the 61 Blackhawk cup team where he was on the second pairing with St. Laurent. Scored a key goal in the deciding game of the 61 final.

c Mike Walton Through 12 NHL seasons, spent with Toronto, Boston, Vancouver, St. Louis and Chicago, Walton collected 448 points in 588 regular season contents. In three WHA seasons, Mike played 211 games and recorded 281 points, including a league-best 117 for Minnesota in 1973-74.

Lw Danny Lewicki was a consistent scorer during nine NHL seasons spent with three teams. Although he weighed only 148 lbs., the tenacious forward drove hard to the net and didn't back down against enemy checkers-Legends of hockey

g Joe Daley Daley served as the Jets back up in 1972-73, but he took the starting reigns the following year and enjoyed great success with them. In 1975-76 Daley won 41 games and backstopped the Jets to their first Avco Cup as league champions. By the time the WHA folded Daley was the winningest goaltender in league history and had three Avco Cup championships on his resume

Lw Errol thompson A speedy left-winger with a blazing shot, Errol Thompson played nearly 600 NHL games in the 1970s and '80s. He was a good-natured competitor whose skill allowed him to hit the 20-goal mark six times in his career.

D Leo Reise Sr He was an excellent skater and had a handy touch as a playmaker as well. He first gained fame with the senior-league Hamilton Tigers of the OHA. He manned their blueline for three seasons until the club hooked up with the NHL. Reise stayed on for parts of four seasons, tying Punch Broadbent of Ottawa for the league lead in assists in 1921-22.

D Al Dewsbury was one of the giants of the game in the 1940s and 1950s. By today's standards, he would be considered just an average-sized player, but back then a 6'2" 202-pound rearguard was a very imposing figure to many of the smaller players in the game. From an offensive perspective, his best year was 1951-52 when he scored seven goals and 17 assists for 24 points. Dewsbury did win a Cup while playing with the Red Wings in 1949-50.He was also on the 59 Canada world champs team.

C Larry wilson Brother of Johnny & father of Ron. Not a lengthy NHL career. Only 152 games but got his name on the Stanley cup with the Red Wings in 49-50. Had a long productive AHL career which probably means he was NHL calibre back in the 50's,

RW Tom Webster It was the 1970-71 campaign that saw Webster's NHL career come to life when he joined the Detroit Red Wings, Webster proved his worth, scoring 30 goals, assisting on 37 others for a highly productive 67-point season.
But the biggest move of Webster's professional hockey career came in 1972 when he and many other NHLers opted to try their hand at the new WHA. Webster joined the New England Whalers, where he enjoyed six productive seasons. In his first WHA year, Webster scored 53 goals and 50 assists for 103 points. In 352 WHA games, he amassed 220 goals, 205 assists and 425 points-Legends 0f Hockey

RW Chico Maki By the fall of 1962, Maki had earned himself a place with the NHL's Chicago Blackhawks, where he remained for duration of his 13-year NHL career. Maki's best season from an offensive point of view was in 1970-71 when he tallied 22 goals and 48 points. played several seasons on a line with Bobby Hull

C Don Raleigh During the 1950 playoffs, he played heroically as the Rangers upset the Canadiens in the first round. Then, during the finals against the Wings, Raleigh scored overtime winners against goalie Harry Lumley to claim games four and five of the series. The Wings, however, roared back to take the final two games and the Stanley Cup.Raleigh remained a steady scorer and playmaker with the Rangers until 1955-56-Legends of hockey

RW Bill Hicke was a compact, fleet-footed skater who, as a junior with the Regina Pats, could put the puck in the net in a big way. The junior "phenom," received billing as the replacement for the Rocket.Naturally there was little Hicke could do to fulfill such expectations. He simply took advantage of the limited ice time he could steal away. During his six and a half seasons with the club, he did manage to score a modestly respectable number of points each year. He eventually ended up in Oakland, where he got plenty of ice time and an opportunity to net his best offensive numbers.

He hit double figures in goals seven times and rarely found himself in the penalty box. Bodnar finished in the top-10 for both points and assists on multiple occassions. He also won two Stanley Cups with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

C Dutch Reibel - Reibel's best season came in 1954/55 when he led the Red Wings in points and finished fourth in the league. It marked the only season between 1950/51 and 1960/61 that someone other than Gordie Howe finished first on the Red Wings in scoring. He followed that up with an eighth place finish in 55/56.

RW Bud Poile - Known as a big, tough player, Poile's best season came in 47/48 when he finished fifth in the league in goals and seventh in points. He also won two Cups with the Leafs as a long-time linemate of Gus Bodnar on the vaunted Flying Forts line.

D Jim Dorey - the big, imposing rearguard was tutored by Tim Horton during his days with the Leafs. He jumped to the WHA, where in his best season he was a second-team All-Star who also led the playoffs in assists.

Joe Cooper - At 6'1, 200, Cooper was one of the biggest and strongest players of his day (in the late 30's/early 40's), and he used his physical superiority whenever possible. Many opposing forwards dreaded having to rush the net, or, even worse, face Cooper along the back boards.

G Bill Beveridge - Beveridge had the unfortunate circumstance of playing the bulk of his career for three teams just prior to them folding. As a result, they usually had severely depleted rosters due to selling off most of their talent for a cash infusion. Despite that he was well respected for being a good goalie during his time.

LW Nick Mickoski - Left-winger Nick Mickoski played over 700 NHL games for four different clubs during the Original Six era. He was a fine goal scorer and playmaker whose 6'1" frame was difficult to bump off the puck. He was known as a strong two-way player.

D Bob Armstrong - A bruising, hard-hitting defenceman, Armstrong anchored the Boston blueline for every one of his 542 career NHL games after graduating from Stratford in junior hockey. He never rushed the puck, got into plenty of fights, and made it to the Stanley Cup finals twice, losing to Montreal in 1953 and again in 1957.

C Forbes Kennedy - Forbes Kennedy was a consistent checker and penalty killer in an NHL career that lasted over 600 games. He never scored more than thirty points in a season but was known as a relentless competitor who would not back down from anyone even though he was only 5'8".

D Warren Godfrey - Defenceman Warren Godfrey played nearly 800 NHL games in the 50s and 60s. He was best known as a reliable stay-at-home blueliner on the Detroit Red Wings for many years. His steady play helped Detroit finish first in the regular season standings once and contributed to playoff drives to the finals in 1956 and 1961.

C Dave Creighton - A five time NHL All-Star, Creighton was also an AHL MVP. He had three twenty goal seasons and topped out at 51 points during the original six era. He was a big, strong center who helped his team make it to the Stanley Cup finals three times, only to be stopped by the dominant Habs teams of the time.

D: Gord Lane (1975-1985)
G: Hal Winkler (1926-1928)

Bob Hartley
AHL and NHL Championship. Career Winning %. No nonsense Coach. Nuff Said.

Mark Napier
Right-winger Mark Napier was blessed with blinding speed and a natural scoring ability. He collected 235 goals and 306 assists while playing a solid defensive game during his 767 game career. Napier collected 2 40+ goal seasons and another 30 goal season with that. He also collected a stanley cup while in Montreal and recorded 3 goals for Team Canada during the 1982 World Championships, helping them to a bronze medal.

Carson Cooper
Carson "Shovel Shot" Cooper made an impact immediatly after entering the NHL. He was on offensive powerhouse for the Boston Bruins collecting 33 goals in his first 48 games between 1924 and 1926. Cooper went on to playing a healthy career recording 110 goals and 167 points in a 294 game career between 1924 and 1932.

Jimmy Herberts
His rookie season he had 24 points in 30 games. He followed that up in 1925-26 with 26 goals and five assists for a 31-point, 36-game season, the third highest scoring total in the NHL. An absolute offensive powerhouse. Herberts collected 83 goals and 114 points in a 206 game career that lasted 6 seasons.

Buzz Boll
Frank "Buzz" Boll was a fast skating left-winger who demonstrated an ability to score during a career that lasted eleven full seasons. He reached double figures in goals eight times and was considered one of the most consistent players in the league. Boll collected 263 points in a 437 game career while being a solid contributor on defense. Boll also played in one NHL All-Star Game.

Ray Whitney
Ray Whitney has collected 732 points in 905 games during his 15 year career. He was a dominant junior player and has collected one stanley cup and played in two all-star games. Whitney has recorded 7 20+ goal seasons and 2 30+ goal seasons while also putting up 8 30+ assists including 2 50+ assist seasons. Whitney was just an all-around consistent player.

Eric Daze
A 6"6 power forward that was great at scoring goals. Unforteunatly his career was cut short because of injuries. Daze recorded 226 goals and 398 points in 601 games while leading the Chicago Blackhawks once in scoring. He was named to the NHL All-Rookie team in 1996, played in the NHL All-Star game in '02 and won numerous junior awards. Daze recorded 4 30+ goal seasons in an 11 season career. He was also solid defensively and was fantastic when representing Team Canada in the World Championships.

Marty Burke
Defenceman Marty Burke played nearly 500 games in the 1920s and '30s. He was a adept at taking opposition forwards out of the play and feeding the puck up to his forwards. He could also play a nastier brand of hockey if matters on the ice required it. Later in his career, after he returned to Montreal, Burke was an integral part of the club that won consecutive Stanley Cups in 1930 and 1931.

Jocelyn Guevremont
Jocelyn Guevremont was an offensive defenseman who started becoming a very good defender 4 years into his career. He recorded 307 points in 571 games while recording a +141 between 1974-1979. Guevremont also had a solid playoff career putting up 21 points in 40 games. Guevremont was also chosen as an extra for the 1972 Summit Series and played in an NHL All-Star Game.

Rick Smith
He joined the Bruins in 1968-69, making a solid contribution to the team's efforts to secure Lord Stanley in 1970. By then, Smith had established himself as a solid, steady rearguard who always attended to the homework of his own zone. Smith enjoyed a 687 game career where he recorded 219 points and an extremely solid +185. He also recorded 26 points in 73 career playoff games where he enjoyed a cup in 1970 as a member of the Bruins.

Gord Lane
The up-and-coming Isles were in need of a tough, ornery defender whose profile fit Lane's to a tee.He was paired with Dave Langevin and as a duo the two played solid, kitty-bar-the-door defense that laid the necessary foundation to help lead the club to four-straight Stanley Cup victories. Lane has been credited as being the team's most effective defender during that era. He played a 539 game career while recording 113 points, capturing 4 Stanley Cups and being called "the team's most effective defender during that era."

Hal Winkler
Though he didn't play for too long. When Hal Winkler played, it was hard to find a better guy to tend your net. Winkler enjoyed just a two year career with the Boston Bruins in which he posted a 35-26-14 record in which he posted a 1.59 GAA and 21 shutouts in just 79 games. This means that in his brief NHL career 27% of Winkler's games were shutouts. That is an impressive stat. Winkler also lead a Boston Bruins team to the Stanley Cup Final and was involved in two Allan Cup Finals. A star goaltender that was one of the best during his era and will never get the recognition cause of his short career.

Alfredshems IK




GM: vancityluongo

Coach: Alain Vigneault

Petr Klima - Michal Handzus - Glen Murray
Geoff Sanderson - Don Saleski (A) - Tony Tanti

Yuri Shatalov - Dennis Kearns (A)
Billy McGimsie (C) - Marcus Rangarsson

Byron Dafoe


With their first pick in the draft, Alfredshems IK select a guy who was once called "the Denis Potvin of the West". Previously held the record for the Canucks all-time leading scorer on defense, D Dennis Kearns.

With our second pick, we take a guy who'll provide us with some offensive talent, as well as size. He brings with him some international experience as well. A very balanced player, he'll center the top line, and play a two-way game making Alfredshems IK proud to select C Michal Handzus Michal will be expected to play at a level which he showed a few years back when he was nominated for the Selke trophy.

Pick number three will be used to take a guy that was a defensive anchor on the Swedish National team. A shutdown specialist, who also had a bit of an edge. Also a key member of the Flyers and Sharks defense for a number of years, he'll be counted on to play a solid defensive game, and make sure his presence is known whenever he steps foot on the ice. Local Swedish boy, D Marcus Ragnarsson.

It's not very often that with the fourth pick of an AAA draft a team can find a defenseman that is in the HHOF. Alfredshems IK has one. A legendary member of the Rat Portage/Kenora Thistles, with who he played his entire career. He finally accomplished his lifelong dream of winning the Stanley Cup in his final season. Inducted in to the HHOF in 1962, D Billy McGimsie.

With Alfredshems IK's 5th pick in the AAA draft, we select a guy who we think is the best goalie available. A key part of his Boston Bruins' and Washington Capitals' teams, he will solidify our backend, and be the key piece to defensive success. Also a good leader, and a decent fighter, as proved when he fought his good buddy Olaf Kolzig, G Byron Dafoe.

Alfredshems IK decided to take a different approach in round 6. We take possibly the most talented player in the draft, but also possibly the laziest. A guy who was so skilled, that many thought that if he had a better work ethic, he could be a legend in the game. If he plays to the best of his ability, then we have a steal on our hands, LW Petr Klima.

Some players fall out of the minor league draft. This is one of those guys. Alfredshems IK select a player who has proven that when placed with talent, he can score. A Boston Bruin who had a 44 goal season not too long ago, RW Glen Murray.

Alfredshems IK take another person who we think could've made one of the two previous drafts. Either as an assistant in the main draft, or a head coach in the minor league. In fact, Alfredshems IK thinks highly of this guy enough, that GM vancityluongo was thinking of taking him as a defensive co-ordinator in both the ATD and the MLD. Many may argue he doesn't belong in either of those drafts, but his Jack Adams win in 06-07 and runner-up in 99-00 would think otherwise. The mind behind the Alfredshems bench, Coach Alain Vigneault.

Alfredshems IK complete our defense core by selecting a member of the Soviet National teams of the past, D Yuri Shatalov. By adding Shatalov, we feel that we have completed a already potent core of defensemen.

Alfredshems IK decide to take a hardworking guy to help out with the offense. A guy with a lot of experience, and a very steady performer, with 5 30+ goal season, LW Geoff Sanderson.

One of the better defensive forwards remaing, not to mention one with a physical presence, Alfredshems IK are happy to select a key member of the Broad Street Bullies Flyers teams. Known as a hardworking guy who'd do pretty much anything for his teammates, F Don Saleski.

To round out the offense, and the entire team roster for that matter, Alfredshems IK select one of the greatest goal scorers in the history of the Vancouver Canucks (yes, I know, not saying much ) a speedy winger who scored 5 straight seasons of 45, 39, 39, 41 and 40 goals, in order, from 83-84 to 87-88, with some pretty weak Canucks teams, F Tony Tanti.

The Antigonish Bulldogs



Forward Johnny McCreedy
Quote:
Johnny McCreedy played most of his hockey career in western Canada in the 1930s and 1940s and was commonly recognized as one of the better goal scorers of his era. He had a smooth-skating style and what he lacked in size, he made up for in quickness.

Goalie Bert Lindsay


Quote:
In 1909, Lindsay was the starting goalie for the Creamery Kings when they joined the newly formed National Hockey Association. Lindsay starred for four seasons on the Victoria Aristocrats and led the PCHA in wins in 1913 and 1914. The talented backstopper was named to the association's all-star team in 1913.

Forward Greg Gilbert
Quote:
Left-winger Greg Gilbert played over 800 NHL games with four different clubs in the 80s and 90s. He possessed above average offensive talent but carved a niche for himself as a big leaguer based on stellar defensive work and leadership skills.Gilbert looked solid while playing ten playoff games to help the Islanders win their fourth straight Stanley Cup.
Forward Russ Courtnall
Quote:
Coming out of junior hockey, Russ Courtnall was considered one of the top prospects in 1983 and the Toronto Maple Leafs selected him seventh overall in the Entry Draft. He finished with 297 goals, 447 assists and 744 points in a 15-year NHL career.
Defenseman Trent Yawney
Quote:
He played some of his best hockey as a member of coach Dave King's Canadian National Team. He had enough offensive ability to average 15 to 20 points season. Yawney has over 200 games of international hockey experience on his resume, including the 1988 Olympics and the World Championships of 1991 and 1992.
Defenseman Grant Ledyard
Quote:
He began his pro career in the CHL as a fine playmaking defenceman on the Tulsa Oilers. In 1984, he was presented the Bob Gassoff Award as the most improved defenceman in the league. In his NHL career, Ledyard appeared in 1,028 regular season games. He scored 90 goals and added 276 assists.
Forward Bill Delargo
Quote:
He recorded well over 400 career points in a spectacular junior career with the Brandon Wheat Kings of the Western Hockey League, but was somewhat less spectacular in his professional career. He retired with 416 points in 555 NHL games.
Defenseman Igor Kravchuk
Quote:
Kravchuk played in 699 regular season games, scoring 64 goals and 210 assists for 274 points, collecting 251 penalty minutes. He also played in 51 playoff games, scoring 6 goals and 15 assists for 21 points, collecting 18 penalty minutes. Kravchuk was also a member of the Unified Team that won the gold medal at the 1992 Winter Olympics.

Foward Howie Meeker
Quote:
Meeker missed the 1943 and 1944 seasons while serving in the Canadian military during the Second World War, but returned to join the Toronto Maple Leafs where he won the Calder Memorial Trophy as outstanding rookie player for the 1946-47 season. He played in three NHL All-Star games during his career of 346 games and won 4 Stanley Cups.
Forward Parker MacDonald
Quote:
He found his stride and reached his full potential playing centre on a line with Gordie Howe and Alex Delvecchio of the famed "Production line". He had a career year in the 1962-63 season when he scored 33 goals with eight of those being game winning goals. He was elected to the Cape Breton Sports Hall of Fame in 1987.
Defenseman Zarley Zalapski
Quote:
He was a member of the Canadian National Team from 1985 to 1988 and participated in the World Hockey Championships and Olympic games during that time. Zalapski was an offensive defenceman, posting a career high for goals in 1991-92 and points in 1992-93 as a member of the Hartford Whalers. He was a great skater with speed and agility during his prime years in the NHL.
Forward Murray Craven
Quote:
Craven played his junior hockey with his hometown Medicine Hat Tigers, and his success there saw him selected by the Detroit Red Wings with their first-round pick (17th overall) in the 1982 NHL Entry Draft. From an individual standpoint, Craven's best seasons came as a member of the Flyers. In 1987-88, he hit the 30-goal plateau while counting 76 points.

The Regina Potholes select, as their offensive star, former hart trophy runner-up Alexei Yashin. Alexei is easily the most talented player available and is the only avaialble player with 400+ adjusted career goals, and has a 100+ point lead on the next highest available player in terms of adjusted points.

Equally adept at scoring goals as he was at setting them up, Alexei Yashin had an NHL career where he was, at best, a bigger force to be reckoned with than the likes of Mats Sundin, and at worst, a decent first line player. In 1998-99, the big center posted career highs of 44 goals and 94 points, 38 points more than the next highest on the Sens, and good for 2nd and 6th in the NHL, earning him a Hart Trophy nomination.

Yashin will be aided by a supporting cast of players with grit, heart, leadership, a winning attitude, and a history of showing up in the playoffs, to offest his....... deficiencies.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Current Roster:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Forwards:

Alexei Yashin: Powerful offensive force. Ability to make his teammates better. A franchise player for a few NHL seasons. 1998-99 2nd team all-star and Hart trophy runner-up. Six 30-goal seasons.

Alexei Zhamnov: Point-Per-Game in each of first four NHL seasons. 719 NHL points. 9 20-goal seasons. Excellent playmaker and competitor. 1994-95 2nd team all-star and 3rd in NHL scoring race.

Len Thornson: IHL's all-time scoring leader, in considerably fewer games than anyone near him. Six-time IHL MVP. Three-time IHL leading scorer. Twice approached 2 points-per-game. Excellent playoff record, 88 pts in 64 games.

Don Metz: Forgotten Leaf was brother of checking ace Nick Metz. Played similar relentless checking game. Won two cups as a Leaf including the infamous come from behind win against Detroit, in which he had 7 points in the 4 wins after Hap Day inserted him into the lineup on a hunch.

Jimmy Ward: Twice top-10 in NHL assists, once top-10 in points. Rarely missed a game. 10+ goals in 10 of 12 seasons in days of 40-48 game schedules. Very dependable and likeable scorer.

Vladimir Ruzicka: 39 goals with Boston in 1991-92. Represented the Czechs in countless international competitions at all levels. 15-straight seasons over a point per game in the Czech league, and in 9 of 15 international competitions. Led the Czech league in goals once, points twice, and two-time MVP.


Defensemen:

Bryan McCabe: 410 Career points, 26 in the playoffs. For most of his career, a tough and gritty defenseman with ability at both ends of the ice. Became a power play specialist in his 30's. 4-time 15-goal scorer. Career high of 67 points. 2003-04 2nd team all-star. 2006 Olympic participant. Two Game-7 goals.

Dale Tallon: 336 Career NHL points in just 642 games. Scored 13+ goals five times in NHL career. 62 points in 1975-76.

Bob Rouse: Triple-tough stay at home crease-clearing defender. Six straight seasons in the final four with Toronto and Detroit. Two Stanley cups. 106 playoff games in six-season period. A fearless warrior. Modest PIM totals for a player of his ilk.

Sylvain Lefebvre: Another stay at home defensive warrior. One of the top shutdown defensemen of the 90's. Twice went to the final four with Toronto. Won a cup with Colorado in 1996. Stabilixed every defensive corps he ever joined.


Goalie:

Don Simmons: Two-time Stanley cup finalist with Boston during Montreal's dynasty seasons. 20 shutouts in just 249 NHL games. 13-11 in playoffs with 3 SO, 10% lower GAA than regular season average. Long, distinguished, and successful minor league career at a time where only 6 goalies could be in the NHL. 221-207-33, 16 SO.


Coach:

John Brophy. Only coach besides Scotty Bowman with 1000 professional hockey wins, and one of just four with 1000 wins in all of North America, at any level. Leads ECHL in all-time wins, playoff wins. Had 11 straight winning seasons in the ECHL and won 3 championships in that time. Fiery, intense, and unpredictable.

Gord Pettinger



won it all with three different NHL franchises

This British-born, Canadian-raised NHL defensive-minded tall left wing/center won the Memorial Cup as captain of the Regina Pats and then went on to win four Stanley Cups with three different NHL franchises (Rangers, Red Wings, Bruins) - something only 5 players have ever done - and was supposedly named the Red Wings captain after their 1937 cup and - as tradition - each player got the trophy to do what they will and he - umm - how can I say this... he crapped in the Stanley Cup. That's right. The captain crapped in the cup. Dropped a deuce. As a result he lost his captaincy and was traded.

I provided the link to the reputable source. Of course the NHL doesn't like to talk about such things, but the players never forget!

In 1937 I bet the emerging reverence for the cup might have seemed absurd to some, even NHL players, as there were other leagues when they were growing up, so it's not like the most esteemed thing, and the 30's was the Depression, so it wasn't the age of champagne slurping by millionaire respected public figures of professional athletes. It was probably a lark or a dare. He won the stanley cup before with another team, even won the memorial cup, so it wasn't something awe-inspiring to him, and he was a leader, captaining teams at the junior and pro level, so he has charisma and popularity he may have overestimated, and simply made a macho silly - perhaps even drunken - mistake in judgement.

Golden Puck Award as Swedish Player of the Year (1984)
Swedish Elite League All-Star Team (1984)

Pelle Eklund was an eighth-round draft pick of the Philadelphia Flyers, 161st overall, in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft. Eklund grew up in Sweden and played with his country's national team before moving to North America in 1985. It's quite likely he went so low in the draft because teams were uncertain if he would leave his native country to play hockey.

In his rookie NHL season in 1985-86, Eklund played in 70 games, scoring 66 points, including 15 goals. The following year Eklund and the Flyers advanced all the way to the Stanley Cup finals but were defeated in a tough seven-game series by Wayne Gretzky and the Edmonton Oilers.

Eklund played in at least 70 games in each of his first six years in Philadelphia, while playing in at least 50 games during his last two full seasons with the Flyers. Midway through the 1993-94 season, Eklund was dealt to the Dallas Stars where he played five games.

That marked the end of Eklund's NHL career. He chose to return to his own country to play for Leksands IF of the Swedish Elite league. He played five years with the team before retiring from professional hockey in the spring of 1999 at the age of 36.

If he were a football player, he would have taken the Brown(s) to the Super Bowl, no matter for which team he played for

Chicago selects possibly the best offensive player still available Mike "Shakey Walton;


Mike Walton began the 1966-67 season with the Rochester Americans, but was called up mid-season and contributed 17 points in 31 regular season games. Walton then proceeded to add 4 goals and 7 points during the 1967 playoffs. Mike became a Leaf regular the next season, scoring a career-best 30 goals in 1967-68. Through 12 NHL seasons, spent with Toronto, Boston, Vancouver, St. Louis and Chicago, Walton collected 448 points in 588 regular season contents. In three WHA seasons, Mike played 211 games and recorded 281 points, including a league-best 117 for Minnesota in 1973-74. (leaf Legends)

The Regina Potholes select as a top-pairing defenseman, Bryan McCabe.

McCabe currently has 408 points in 892 career NHL games. Today he is considered erratic defensively, and by that I mean he is sometimes excellent, sometimes poor. It wasn't always that way. Earlier on, McCabe was a fairly solid defenseman with modest offensive ability. Even in his first few years with the Leafs if you watch some classic series, you will see him perform quite admirably in his own zone.

In 2003-04 McCabe performed well enough to earn a berth on the second All-Star team. In 2005-06, McCabe really broke out offensively, scoring 67 points in 73 games and earned a spot on team Canada's Olympic squad.

McCabe's playoff history is somewhat brief, but excellent. He has a substantially improved career GPG average, with APG being the same. His PIM go down considerably in the playoffs as well, from 1.71 to 1.37. His teams have won 4 series while losing 4, and he was a major part of the gutsy squad that emerged from the brink of elimination against the Ottawa Senators in 2002, with up to 7 other regulars injured. To top it off, he has scored a goal in each of the past two game 7's that the Leafs have won against Ottawa. The single worst game of McCabe's career happened in the playoffs, but many of his best ones did as well.

McCabe was named captain of the New York Islanders at a very young age, and has been an assistant captain on the Leafs for five years. He is well-liked by his teammates, and the Leafs like him so much they gave him a contract that ensures he will never play anywhere but Toronto!

The St. Catharines Falcons select Art Jackson (C)

From "Legends of Hockey"
Quote:
A slick playmaking centre, Art Jackson had a fine eleven-year NHL tenure in the 1930s and 40s. Statistically his finest years came with the Boston Bruins in the mid-1940s when they lost some of their top skaters to military service. Art was the youngest member of the famous hockey family that included star Harvey "Busher" Jackson.

n Boston, Jackson became a solid playmaker and checker playing as the third centre behind Bill Cowley and Milt Schmidt. He was on hand when the "black and gold" won their second Stanley Cup in three years in 1941. When the Bruins lost the "Kraut Line" of Schmidt, Dumart, and Bauer to military service, Jackson assumed a key role in keeping the team competitive. He registered consecutive 20-goal seasons in 1942-43 and 1943-44 playing on a line with Cowley and Herb Cain. During the early '40s he also had the opportunity to play with his brother, Harvey.
301 points in 468 games

The Blades select C Gus Bodnar.

Quote:
Gus Bodnar was a fine scorer and playmaker in an NHL career that lasted nearly 700 games in the 1940s and '50s. He hit double figures in goals seven times and rarely found himself in the penalty box.

Bodnar finished in the top-10 for both points and assists on multiple occassions. He also won two Stanley Cups with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

What seasons did Bodnar finish in the top-10 in points? I had a spreadsheet with everyone who did that multiple times who wasn't picked in the ATD, and he wasn't on it.... If I'm wrong, it must be because I wrongly assumed he was already taken.
