To comply with the rules in the stated OP about call-ups, I regretfully drop my hero and yours, Wade Belak for G Chris Osgood.


Swing low, sweet chariot.

From the "Hey, isn't this ironic" department, Osgood was picked by Reds in the main draft. Try again.

Looks like I missed some good controversy.

For my skipped pick, I'll take a guy who won 3 Stanley Cups, can play any forward position, and is pretty good at every aspect of the game.

Sergei Brylin, F

Brylin is one of five Devils who have played for all three of their championship teams, the only others being Martin Brodeur, Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens, and Ken Daneyko.

That's Brylin, though. He's one of those little cogs that make the Devils tough to beat. He plays on a checking line, kills penalties and can score a big goal when needed. He had a goal and an assist in New Jersey's Cup-clinching game against Detroit in 1995.

"Sergei has been a key part of our team over the years, the unsung hero," said defenseman Ken Daneyko, referring to the team award Brylin won in 2001 and 2002. "We've managed to get this far with him being injured, so to bring in a guy who can play at both ends of the rink is a spark for us. He's a playoff-type player who can only help if he's healthy."
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/hoc...ils_brylin_ap/

Brylin played LW on the Gomez-Mogilny line in 2001 and sometimes in 2000, so he should fit in well as LW on my top minor league line with Gomez and Amonte. He also has the versatility to be slotted anywhere on the main team lineup without being a liability, should major injury problems occur. He was a part time center on the 2nd scoring line in 1995, and a right wing on the Madden checking line after the lockout.

Yes, this might be a tiny bit of a homer pick, but I haven't even come close to making one all draft, so I'll have fun with my last pick. I certainly think a complete utility player can be an asset to any team.

For one night, and one night only, Wade Belak was among the greatest to ever play the game.

yeah, sorry. At some point I went from disagreeing that you "should have won" to thinking that I was disagreeing that you "did win".

Your squad, and the others, don't look all that much different to me. However, I find it hard to believe that knowing what we know now, any of those teams would beat pit, including your own. If that's arrogance, then show me someone who has been through the past 4 ATDs and MLDs, and disagrees with me. No disrespect intended.

This reminds me of a time a couple years back where, in our annual playoff draft, a guy picked a certain New Jersey defenseman who was hidden on the LTIR all season long just because his name wasn't on the stats sheets we had(they were a week old and didn't include him). I definitely got a chuckle out of that one too.

BTW, can anyone take a list?

TC asked to be skipped, so I guess we are up.... and have been for a while.

Regina completes their list of minor league call-ups with:

Fred Scanlan, LW

Lemelin is really underrated around here in relation to his vezina and all-star voting record.

With their final picks in the 12th All-time draft, the Nova Scotia Voyageurs are pleased to select first a three-time PCHA first all-star, known more for his gritty play than his scoring ability, from Cashions Glen, Ontario, right winger...

Ran McDonald

- Stanley Cup Finalist (1918, 1919)
- PCHA 1st All-Star Team (1912, 1913, 1914)
- PCHA 2nd All-Star Team (1916)
- Played for all six PCHA Teams
- Top-10 in PCHA goals 4 times (4th, 6th, 6th, 8th)
- Top-10 in PCHA assists twice (6th, 9th)
- 91 goals, 29 assists, 120 points, 197 PIM in 122 PCHA Games
- 4 goals and 6 points in 8 PCHA Playoff/SCF games

*Thanks to seventies for this info from the last AAA draft.

...and second, we are pleased to select a hard-working defenseman who retired holding the team among defenseman for games played, as well as being second all-time among Blackhawk defenseman in points, from Kingston, Ontario...

Bob Murray

The 'Hawks drafted Murray 52nd overall from the Cornwall Royals. In his first season with the Royals, Murray had contributed to their successful Memorial Cup run.

Murray played his first professional season with the Dallas Black Hawks of the Central Hockey League. His 57 points helped earn him a blueline spot with the big club the next season. He managed just three points in 1975-76. The next campaign saw his production increase sevenfold. In fact, he continued to improve up to the 1980-81 season when he racked up 60 points. The joy of a personally-satisfying season ended when the Blackhawks were swept by the Calgary Flames in the opening round of the 1981 playoffs.

Chicago, with Bob Murray, finally experienced playoff success in 1982 when they lasted to the semi-finals. In a four year stretch, the 'Hawks made the final four in three of those years. Murray played in two All-Star Games, 1981 and 1983, collecting one assist.

He continued to play in the NHL through to 1988, when he finally went back to the minors for a short stay at the beginning of 1988-89. It wasn't long before he was back in Chicago and on the way to the semis again. The Blackhawks repeated the feat in 1990.

In 1990, Bob Murray retired, having been on five Blackhawks teams that finished one round short of the Stanley Cup. He finished his playing career holding the team record among defensemen for games played and was ranked second in scoring among the team's blueliners.

...Damn.
I got the Mcintyre pick wrong, but please, Harry Watson is a LW...
And it sucks 'cause my 2nd pick was Bob Murray.

McIntyre is listed as a D quite a few places here and there, and I don't have The Trail at home.

Thus, he SHOULD be a goalscoring D. And that's what he is, after all, this isn't the first guy we're picking that nobody (or close to nobody) ever saw play.
