Perhaps one of the greatest quote I've read in a long time. It's from an undrafted players, but the quote itself is hilarious:

Once during a tense, rough and brawling hockey game, courageous xxx, one of the tiniest players in the National Hockey League, lost his temper and tangled with big tough defenseman Fernie Flaman, one of the most feared battling sluggers in the league. As they grappled, shoulder to shoulder, pint-sized xxx suddenly shouted a warning at his huge opponent who outweighed him by more than fifty pounds:

"Watch out, Fernie, or I'll bleed all over you!"

---

How about helping a divisional team!

Hockey Sports Stars of 1973


- ''But this may surprise you, pound for pound, little Henri Richard is as good as any (fighter).'' - Referee Matt Pavelich

Looks like I've caught the bug, too. Every OP seems to inappropriately list a forward as D at least once.

That's definitely the spirit of the ATD: old is overrated

I don't know why I keep finding incident between Fern Flaman and Henri Richard:

(Flaman) once nearly killed Montreal's Henri Richard with a devastating, but legal body check during a game at Boston Garden. - Who's Who in Hockey

Go to Google books and type in their name. Here's a start:

Reen, Sports Illustrated's SI Vault can be a good source for postexpansion stars. They definitely have a lot on Gretzky,and should have stuff on Lidstrom and Konstantinov from the playoffs at least. They are particularly good for quotes from players and coaches.

I have had all the free time in the world in the last 25 days, as my only plans are taking 2-3 hours per day finding a job and 1-2 hours a day learning Spanish. My biography are eating almost all the rest of my days. I probably took about 100 hours writing down 4 and a half biography. I really don't have the time, nor want, to do anymore biographies!

Good night all (3AM in here!)

I wanted these picks from Nighthawks... I made him a very lucrative offer. We had been in talks for a while but he didn't even reply to my last PM... kinda strange that he's just going to blow them now, by not being here.

Nighthawks: When you get back, I'll still take them at the same value as long as the guys I'm after are around.

In hindsight, my trade with Nighthawks was a huge loss for me, I think. I could have gotten Belfour or Gardiner or something with the last pick I used to have, and then I would have had two huge steals here instead of just one.. D:

ANY POSTER WHO PLANS ON PICKING IN THE NEXT 10-15 PICKS THAT MAY BE IN/OUT WITHIN THE NEXT FEW HOURS PLEASE SEND LISTS TO ME.

I'm home for the next 6 hours, and I'd like to pick tonight

But really, we can make up for some lost progress over the last 24 hours.
