I think pappy would want Patrick as a defenceman. He was pretty good at it, too.

I'll likely be up all night semi-studying for a final. I'll probably be active until around 7 o'clock Sasky team(around 9 eastern, I think), so feel free to send in lists to me.

draft #18 Bob Davidson, LW

Quote:
Bob Davidson is a nice pickup,hes a steady, reliable defensive forward with an offensive upside who could skate as well as any speedster. Not many of those available for the checking line.Bob never shied away from physical play, amassing an impressive 388 career PIM's. He lead by example, but was as strong a presence in the dressing room as he was on the ice. Known as one of the top defensive forwards in the NHL, that moniker was put to the test against the best of the NHL to shadow with the likes of rocket richard.

Bob Davidson on occasion went by the nickname "Rugged Robert" by his teammates. He played his entire 12-year NHL career in a Toronto Maple Leafs' uniform, from 1934 to 1946. He played in the NHL from 1933-34 to 1945-46. He played on two Stanley Cup winning teams. His first was in 1941-42 and his second in the 1944-45 season in which he was Captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Known as one of the top defensive forwards in the NHL. After his playing days were over he stayed on with the Leafs organisation in a number of different capacities his most notable was as Cheif Scout. Bob is considered by many to be one of the best hockey scouts of all time and was credited with building the Toronto Maple Leafs teams during the 1960's which dominated the NHL by winning the Stanley Cup four times (1961/62, 1962/63, 1962/54, 1966/67) within a six year period. Bob Davidson served as Captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs from 1943 to 1945.

In 491 career games, he tallied 94 goals and 160 assists and sits 39th overall on the TML all-time playoff points chart with 22.Davidson's accomplishments as a Leaf has him ranked #38 overall on the Leafs All-time greatest players list..

If he can score 50 with Joe Nieuwendyk, I can't wait to see what he'll do on the 2nd line with Joe Thornton.

TRADE NOTE

There are 4 guys I want, 3 I really want, to fill 3 spots on my team.

Anyone in the next 10 picks or so willing to move down? Otherwise I'm going to have to wait and I'll be a sad panda if my guys get picked.

I believe Cup's time is up (I just got a PM to that effect - thanks, Pwna), so I'll go ahead and pick. With the 537th pick of the draft, the Springfield Isotopes are pleased to select right wing Jim Pappin.

Pappin's big mouth may rub Keenan the wrong way from time-to-time, but his play surely won't.

With picks 540 and 541, the St. Catharines TeePees are pleased to add some more muscle to their blueline by selecting two early era rhino's on skates:


Harry Mummery (D) & Bert Corbeau (D)


Harry Mummery:
Though known for his defensive prowess and physical intimidation, Mummery was no slouch when it came to offence racking up 52 points in 106 NHL games, including a career-high 15 goals in 1920-21.

In an article about Joe Hall (http://www.geocities.com/kinhobo/hall.html)
Quote:
The following season saw the Bulldogs again dominate. Joe moved back to point to make room for his new defensive partner, Harry Mummery. Mummery was a thoroughly intimidating figure. Well over six feet tall in skates and nearly 250 pounds, Mummery led the league that year in penalty minutes, pummeling into submission anyone that got in his sights. If a player managed to elude Mummery's bulk, there was Bad Joe Hall waiting right behind him. Hall and Mummery's crushing style of defense allowed the team's offense to shine.

For the next three seasons, Hall and Mummery continued to be the most feared defensive pairing in the league, although as Bulldogs they never again won the Stanley Cup, losing the chalice to the Toronto Blueshirts the following season.
From 'Legends of Hockey'
Quote:
Big Harry Mummery was a large man in his era. In size, he compared to the xxxx boys--xxxx, xxxx and xxxx. What set "Mum" apart was that he could rush off the defensive line despite that large frame. A goaltender facing a fast charging 220 pound colossus could be excused if he flinched and allowed a goal...Mummery's defensive work was key in Toronto winning a second Stanley Cup for the Queen City...During this time, Mummery worked as an engineer or fireman on the Canadian Pacific Railway. According to Tim Daly, the long-time Toronto trainer, it was not uncommon to see Mummery rush in with a raw steak, plop it on to a freshly washed shovel and then cook it in the dressing room pot-bellied stove.

Bert Corbeau:

In every one of his seasons as an NHL player (10) he had over a 90% attendance record, which I believe isnt too far off of the all-time record for defensemen.

He actually has one of the highest offensive peaks out of any defenseman remaining. Between 1917 and 1929, he finished top 6 in points by defensemen six times, only star defensemen King Clancy and Buck Boucher had more top 6 finishes during that time period. The man they called "old pig iron" has all the looks of a #1 defensemen so we are very glad to have him anchor our blue-line.

Again there are a few guys I really really want here. I'm crossing my fingers.

The Trail Smoke Eaters are proud to select a hall of fame offensive stud from the blue line. This rounds out our top 6 with IMO very balanced pairings.

D "Bullet" Joe Simpson

Quote:
He made amends for a poor showing in his rookie year by winning a Western Hockey League First Team All-Star berth in 1921-22. He was named to the First Team on three occasions and to the Second Team once. At the time, "Newsy" Lalonde called Simpson the greatest living hockey player.

Vakar PMed I keep saying I'm going to get some sleep and keep getting drawn back in.

Researching players and falling in love with what they could do for your team is very envigorating.

Kevin McLelland is the first player picked in this ATD that has never been taken in the ATD, MLD, AAA, or mentioned in the last two "talk about the best undrafted players" threads.

Indeed. This said, to be a successful grinding winger, no need to be a 5-tool player. Some guys are doing a pretty commendable job at this while having only one tool : those regularily watching Habs games would realize the importance of Steve Begin in the Habs lineup... And Begin is a 1-tool guy at best - skating.
