May as well see how it works. I'm game.

The Germans were unable to get past the European Group for the World Cup, as they finished 3rd in their pool of 4, ahead of Sweden. They ended with a 1-3 record and were done in by their special teams, as the powerplay clicked at just 7.7% and their penalty killing was very poor at 76.9%. They were finally eliminated by the Czech Republic. Gaspar led the Germans with 3 points in 4 games. Trippler was held scoreless.

Not enough action ingame or not enough participation?

since CW is doing one, you could just stop yours. Or if I finally get my head around editing the database I could start one in the near future. But that's a BIG if.

Like the new avatar, dudders.

Maybe I'll do the 5 year plan now and see what's what.

Steven Dabney -

Dabney never broke out the way many scouts predicted, instead becoming a staple on the 3rd and 4th lines of several NHL teams, though he did post a number of career highs in the most recent season. Drafted by the Coyotes, Dabney was eventually shipped to Florida, where he spent 4 years as a plug on the bottom lines. After his contract expired, Dabney became unrestricted and signed on with the Rangers, where he earned a spot on the 2nd line out of camp and put up his best career season, playing in all 82 games and scoring 20 goals and 59 points, while centering Brendan Morrow and Benoit Desjardins. The Rangers went up 3 games to 1 in the first round of the playoffs before Rick Nash-led Penguins won the final 3 games to advance.

Final career statistics [NHL]:

783 GP, 112G, 156A, -58, 495 PiMs, 1065 SoG, 10% shooting, 17 first stars, 7 PPG, 23PPA, 1 SHG, 16 GWG, 116 hits, 93 giveaways, 101 takeaways, 225 blocked shots, 3 fights, 10 misconducts, 4 game misconducts, 0 fights, and an average of 11:15 on ice.


Thomas Duddy - After 7 years in St. Louis, all but the final year on the 4th line, Duddy seized the opportunity to jump ship and signed a 3 year deal with the Senators, where he was guaranteed consistent top 9 minutes. Duddy improved his point total in each of the past 4 seasons, starting at 21 and most recently recording 47, on the strength of 37 assists while playing on the Sens second line. In retrospect, scouts cite his mental weaknesses as the reason why the supremely talented Austrian never truly broke out.

Final career statistics [NHL]:

674 GP, 69G, 136A, 205 points, -119, 461 PiMs, 811 SoG, 8% shooting, 5 first stars, 5 PPG, 14 PPA, 19 PPP, 9 GWG, 236 hits, 237 giveaways, 60 takeaways, 266 blocked shots, 56% faceoff, 9 misconducts, 1 game misconduct, 11:36 ATOI.


Christoph Gaspar - Gaspar, like Dabney and Duddy, spent a long time on the bottom lines, despite having the talent to play a much more important role. As soon as he was slotted in the second line LW spot for the Canadiens, Gaspar had a legitimate break out season, jumping from 29 points to 62 points, and the versatile German never looked back. After his contract expired with the Habs, he signed on with the Devils, where he played only 1 regular season game, notching an assist, before being dealt to the Blackhawks. His best season came the following year in Chicago, where he put up 103 points in 82 games and was named the Hawks MVP [even though Crosby was on the team ]. Despite putting up slightly better than a point-per-game pace in the playoffs, the Hawks were eliminated by the eventual Cup champs in Edmonton. Gaspar most recently signed a 2-year deal with the Canucks, a deal that paid him 2.3M per season.

Final career statistics [NHL]:

853 GP, 208G, 348A, 556P, -67, 907 PiMs, 1675 SoG, 12% shooting, 39 first stars, 18 PPG, 27 PPA, 45 PPP, 9 SHG, 10 SHA, 29 GWG, 501 hits, 253 giveaways, 188 takeaways, 400 blocked shots, 55% faceoffs, 14 misconducts, 1 game misconduct, 1 fight [lost], 16:17 ATOI.


Nick Grunville - Grunville never improved on his shooting ability and it cost him in the long run. After putting up some decent numbers in the NCAA, he went back home to Germany where he became a top contributor in the second tier of the DEL, regularly posting above a point-per-game pace. He eventually signed on with the first division DEL team in Krefeld, where he saw his production steadily drop.

Final career statistics [DEL-2]:

245 GP, 102 G, 184 A, 286 P, +109, 276 PiMs, 865 SoG, 11% shooting, blah blah blah, 27:45 ATOI.

Final career statistics [DEL]:

194 GP, 37 G, 89 A, 126 P, +62, 121 PiMs, 229 SoG, 16% shooting, 1 first star, 3 PPG, 1 PPA, 3 GWG, 1 hit, 52 giveaways, 1 takeaway, 67% faceoff, 1 misconduct, 1 game misconduct, 1 fight [lost], 14:19 ATOI.


Nicholas Guy - Guy, the only player in our collection to never play a game in a league below the AHL, established himself as a smart, steady AHL defender, spending time with Manchester, Cleveland, Chicago, Toronto, and Manitoba. He played a total of 2 NHL games and had 2 productive seasons in the Russian Super League before returning to North America.

Final Career Statistics [AHL]:

660 GP, 43 G, 234 A, 277P, -72, 621 PiMs, 637 SoG, 6% shooting, 26 first stars, 1 PPG, 18 PPA, 6 SHA, 7 GWG, 719 hits, 0 giveaways, 776 takeaways, 282 blocked shots, 4 misconducts, 9 fights [all lost], 20:27 ATOI.


Darcy Regier, Jr. - Scouts had him all over the place: a starter like Alex Auld, a 3rd stringer with more talent than Marty Brodeur. Turns out that Darcy was a 3rd stringer like Alex Auld. He most recently signed a 1-year deal with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL after spending several seasons as an unsuccessful backup at the NHL level. It has been rumored that the only reason he kept getting games in the NHL was because of his relationship with Russell, but those rumors were never substantiated.

Final career statistics [AHL]:

49 GP, 32 W, 12 L, 5 T, 2.14 GAA, .923 save%, 8 first stars, 4 shutouts.

Final career statistics [NHL]:

168 GP, 46W, 96L, 19T, 4.20 GAA, .868 save%, 1 first star, 4 assists.


Dave Trippler - Like many others on this list, Trippler never lived up to the lofty potential that many scouts saw in him, but he did establish himself as a consistent offensive threat in his native Germany, where he spent time with both Berlin and Düsseldorf, with his best seasons coming with the Polar Bears in Berlin. The Harvard graduate was making $275k a season with Düsseldorf.

Final career statistics [DEL]:

314 GP, 122 G, 152A, 274P, +199, 222 PiMs, 862 SoG, 14% shooting, 17 first stars, 4 PPG, 8 PPA, 2 SHG, 3 SHA, 19 GWG, 11 hits, 100 giveaways, 7 takeaways, 2 blocked shots, 41% faceoff, 1 misconduct, 19:00 ATOI.


Andrew Turnwall - The former #1 overall pick spent time in many NHL cities, including Phoenix, Tampa, New York, Los Angeles, and Washington. In the stupidest move of our career game, the Kings placed Turnwall on waivers despite recording 3 points in 3 games, where he was promptly claimed by the Capitals, putting up 56 points in 80 games in the nation's capital. The smart, steady defenseman played in the All-Star game one season and was a consistent top pairing defenseman wherever he was playing, and he began to earn the label of 'clutch' as almost 25% of his goals were game-winners. It seems likely that one statistical category was all the was keeping him from being labeled as "elite". He was making $3.2M a season as we wrapped up our game.

Final career statistics [NHL]:

770 GP, 66 G, 290 A, 356 Patient, +143, 1034 PiMs, 1029 SoG, 6% shooting, 12 first stars, 10 PPG, 27 PPA, 37 PPP, 2 SHG, 8 SHA, 10 SHP, 15 GWG, 966 hits, 1591 giveaways [not a typo], 260 takeaways, 519 blocked shots, 6 misconducts, 1 game misconduct, 5 fights [1 win], 23:03 ATOI.




So, that's it. I hope you all enjoyed the game, and I apologize that it took so long to get this written up. Until next time…..

Despite the giveaways, +143. Woot. Any Cup Rings to sweeten that resume?

Nay. Nobody won a cup. I can't look up if any of the overseas guys won anything. You were the only one to be an All-star though.

Yeah...Gogulla had a solid NHL career in this one. I want to say he was second in Calder voting, too.
