Not at all! you hadn't named a team previously so on the Draft Board you were ReenMachine - TBA, in order to fill that hole I informed 70's that you had chosen a team name!

Double standard if you don't get a warning for self-abuse.

As you all know it took a long time for us to decide between Aki Berg and Bobby Orr but we made our pick and we think we made the right one.

I thought we started Jan 31?

Great pick with Orr though, simply dominant all over the rink like no one in the history of hockey.

If I'm just ranking players, he's my #3, but in a draft you have to take him 1st.

no, he's right. Career value, he might be 3rd and that's where I rate him all-time. But per-game, or even per-best-600-games, there's no doubt he was the best ever.

So we begin now? can't say I have a problem with that, definitely no starting of clocks until the original start date though. And Orr goes #1 again, for what he did in the amount of games he played in, is without a doubt, an immaculate effort, that would be a strenuous task to be matched by anybody.

If per game pace was all that mattered, then certain guys would be at the top of the class that may not even go in this draft.

If the two GM before me pick in the next few hours, I'll be here to make my selection (If the condition of my trade with Dreak are still valid)

I won't really slow the draft down because I'm waiting for the 3rd overall anyway.

Did you PM Nugget, Reen? He's around quite alot for a new GM.

And don't worry, 4th selection is an easy one for me

And the under appreciation of Wade Belak continues.

of course it's not just about per-game pace. but 600 games is still a long time to prove you're the best. And Orr did. this isn't a top-100 list, it's the ATD. We're looking at a player's on-ice impact here.

Well, except he didn't say that, he just said he was dominant like no other hockey player ever. And when he was on the ice, he was.

In terms of peak? Maybe.. but another guy was dominant as hell for much, much longer.

The other guy was dominant in one zone - the offensive zone. Orr was at both ends.

The other guy had the puck so often that whether or not he was good defensively really didn't matter. The same can be said of Orr, sure, but the other guy definitely had that dominance for much longer.

Curious, how much stock do you put into longevity? You seem to be one of those guys that doesn't put any at all.

Waiting for confirmation of my trade with Home Nugget that I posted in the trade thread , Home Nugget said ''Sounds good to me'' so I took it as a yes if unsure just ask him , if it's confirmed he's next to pick.

Hmm, well there is a modern physical specimen centre that I think should go higher than he usually does in this draft because he was so good at his peak, so I don't put much stock into longevity.
