Gus Bodnar also holds two NHL records

Fastest goal by a rookie: 15 seconds into his first game.
Fastest three assists: 21 seconds

Everyone credits Bill Mosienko with the great achievement of scoring the three fastest goals in 21 seconds but I never hear anyone mention his centre ice man who won each of those three face-offs and passed the puck! The first two face-offs Bodnar won cleanly and made identical passes to Bill who took identical shots. The third face-off Bodnar turned the other way and passed to the other wing, from which Bill received the pass to shoot.

Good pick.

Greenville selects the most prolific hip checker I have ever seen, a NCAA all-star offensive defenseman who settled in to play a more defense-first game in the NHL, getting heavy minutes as a rookie as his North Stars went to the Stanley Cup Finals, a decade later he would lead the team to the finals again, this time as the veteran captain


Curt Giles



Quote:
short and stout he used to destroy guys with a hip/butt check. He'd send guys flying azz over tea kettle; like running into a fire hydrant
http://boards.wild.com/index.php?showtopic=4277

North Stars captain (1988-1991)
North Stars MVP (1980-81, 1984-85, 1988-89)
North Stars Best Defenseman (1984-85, 1985-86, 1987-88, 1988-89, 1989-90)
242 points, 733 PIM in 895 NHL games (118 PIM in 103 NHL playoff games)
helped Minnesota run to the Stanley Cup Finals (1981, 1991)
NCAA All-star, captain, multiple offensive record holder for a defenseman

Quote:
... a steady defenceman who could pass the puck up ice effectively. He played nearly 900 games for three different teams between 1979-80 and 1992-93 but was best known as a fixture on the Minnesota North Stars' blueline... stepped in and showed surprising poise for a rookie while helping the team reach the semifinals. Along the way the young Stars defeated the Montreal Canadiens in the quarterfinals to end their four-Cup dynasty.

Beginning in 1980-81 Giles was a regular for over six years in Minnesota and helped the squad reach the Stanley Cup final for the first time in franchise history in 1981. The next year, after Minnesota was upset in the first round of the playoffs, he joined Team Canada and helped them win the bronze medal at the World Championships. Early in the 1986-87 season the steady rearguard was traded to the New York Rangers but returned to his original club twelve months later. In 1991 his veteran savvy helped Minnesota reach the finals for the second time.

Giles spent the 1991-92 season with the Canadian national team and scored a goal as the team won the silver medal at the Albertville Olympics.

The Antigonish Bulldogs select

G. Bert Lindsay




Quote:
Goalkeeper Bert Lindsay played with the Montreal Wanderers and Toronto Arenas during the first two seasons of the NHL. Prior to this he was a well known figure in the PCHA, NHA and various senior leagues.

Born in Garafraxa County, Ontario, Lindsay first made a name for himself by playing senior hockey at McGill University in Montreal and the Toronto Rowing club. In 1906 he moved to Renfrew and played in the Ottawa Valley senior loop for two years before toiling in the Federal Amateur Hockey League with the local Creamery Kings.

In 1909, Lindsay was the starting goalie for the Creamery Kings when they joined the newly formed National Hockey Association. He remained in the city the next year to play for the renamed Millionaires before he was lured away to the Patrick brothers' Pacific Coast 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. Two years later he returned to the NHA with the Montreal Wanderers and played with the club for two seasons. He was on hand when the Wanderers became one of the founding members of the NHL in 1917 then folded after their arena burned to the ground.

A link is good, though make sure you write-up a couple of lines on your roster post:

Note: Post as much info as you'd like but be prepared to have at least a 2-line bio for each player selected. At the end of the draft every team's collection of two line bios will be looked at together in our assessments of best overall crop of all-timers

He would have been the best LW in the MLD if he was available.

BTW, nice pick with Bodnar, pit. He would have been my top-rated player.

YOUR KIDDING ME!!!

I triple checked using Control+F just to make sure he was still there...I look again, and I see that the ATD thread doesn't have all teh picks updated. Great.

Ah ****, I'll re-pick in a bit. Gotta look at some more options.

EdiT: My fault here completely, I was looking at ATD 8 Part IV. Sorry BM.

Although still a little disappointed since we thought we had snatched a HHOF, Alfredshems IK select a guy who although not a HOF, is a pretty good pick at this point in the draft. 6 foot 5 C Michal Handzus.

Chicago selects- Lw Danny Lewicki. Only player to win the Memorial, Allan & Stanely cups while still a junior.

Left-winger 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

The Regina Potholes select G Don Simmons.

A bit of a poor man's Wilf Cude/Gerry McNeil, Simmons played 249 NHL gam es (101-101-41, 20 SO) over 13 seasons and was a starter for three years with Boston. In two of those years, he took the Bruins to the finals, only to lose to a powerhouse Montreal team. According to available stats, Simmons was 3rd in the NHL in save percentage in one of those seasons. Also, in 1962, Simmons won two games en route to a Toronto Maple Leafs Stanley Cup while backing up the great Johnny Bower.

A good playoff goalie, Simmons had a career NHL playoff record of 13-11 in 24 games, with 3 shutouts, and a GAA of 2.59, 10% lower than his career average.

His time was not limited to the NHL, however. In 487 other pro games from 1951-1969 where stats are available, he compiled a 221-207-33 record in 487 games, with another 16 shutouts. In the playoffs in these leagues, he had a 15-16 record with 2 shutouts in 32 games. He was named to the WHL first all-star team in 1967, the AHL second all-star team in 1955, and the EAHL second all-star team in 1952 and 1953.

Nice pick. A very solid guy. I was considering him in the MLD.

Nice choice pappy, he was going to be my next pick.

I'll take C Dutch Reibel.

Quote:
During that lone campaign, Reibel became the first player in the Ontario league's history to surpass the 100-point mark in a single season.

The Red Wings could no longer ignore the exploits of their right wing prospect. In 1953-54, Reibel finally joined the Wings lineup where he was placed on a line with Gordie Howe and Ted Lindsay. As a talented playmaker, Reibel scored at a very steady clip, helping his club to two Stanley Cup victories during his four and a half seasons with the team. In 1956, his Red Wing success was topped off with a Lady Byng Trophy for gentlemanly play.
His 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.

He was heads and shoulders above any LW left on my list. We gave him a long look for our 13th forward spot, but we decided to go with Jeff Friesen as a Game 7 ringer instead. Couldn't believe he slipped out of the MLD.

Valletta takes C Ryan Getzlaf. Big power forward with scoring punch, one of the key forwards for Anaheim's '07 Cup-winner.
