Garnish goes with a 3rd line centre known mostly for winning faceoffs but he was actually a pretty decent scorer during his NHL career. My pick today is Centre, Yanic Perreault.



Some stats on Perreault:

- 516 Points in 857 Games
- 2 Top 10's in Game Winning Goals For A Season
- 7-20 Goal Seasons

Heh, I remember vecens finding him in the MLD. What a unique resume... top 10 in PP goals 5 seasons in a row and a huge liability at even strength because he can't skate.

Was he a front of the net kind of guy or just a skilled player who couldn't skate.

FAWK! I wantred Gardner to be a little-used 4th liner and PP specialist. With Prospal gone, he is the top alltime PP producer left, having led the league in PP goals twice. (Obviously, on a per game basis he laps the field of available players in pp production)

Gardner MIGHT be the most one dimensional player of all time. I didn't realize it was his skating that held him back. I thought it was just that he was small, soft, had no defensive ability or work ethic, but was a wizard with the puck.

Jon Casey kicked his career into high gear by accepting an invitation to play hockey for the University of North Dakota from 1980-84. While there, he was a strong performer, having been twice named to the WCHA first All-Star team and was selected to the NCAA West First All-American Team in 1984.

Before he was able to complete his academic program, however, Casey signed as a free agent with the Minnesota North Stars. From 1984-88, he saw only limited action with the Stars, spending more of his time, securing his game in the AHL and the IHL.

Casey finally became a full-time NHLer in 1988-89. During that year he appeared in 55 games, the first of six consecutive 50-game seasons.

In 1989-90, he set career highs by playing 60 regular-season and playoff games while winning 34 of them. The following year, he led the North Stars to the Stanley Cup finals where, in spite of his stellar performance, Mario Lemieux and the Penguins prevailed.

I never quite knew what to make of goaltender Jon Casey. Perhaps that is because, not knowing all the intricacies of goaltending, I often don't know what to make of a lot of goalies. Perhaps it was Casey was quite an unorthodox goalie to begin with. He seemed to naturally be a scrambling, reflexive goalie who, through years of professional coaching, tried morphing into a classic, play-the-angles netminder.

However he tried stopping the puck, obviously it worked. For a period of about 5 years he was a bona fide number one goalie in the National Hockey League,. He was never a serious threat to win the Vezina Trophy, but he did get his team to a Stanley Cup finals.

Regardless of his accomplishments, most will remember Jon Casey for being on the wrong side of two of the most famous goals in Stanley Cup history.

A Grand Rapids, Minnesota native, Casey didn't travel far for his collegiate career. He played in net for the University of North Dakota from 1980-1984, and was named to the Western Collegiate Association (WCHA) First All-Star team for the 1981-82 and 1983-84 seasons. He also earned a nod on the WCHA
Second All-Star team in 1983 and the WCHA All-American team in 1984. The team took home the NCAA championship twice (1980, 1982) during his tenure.

Casey left UND in 1984, signing as an undrafted free agent with the Minnesota North Stars. For the next four years he spend most of his time working on his game at the AHL and IHL levels. In 1985, Casey had a stellar season. He was named to the AHL All-Star team, won the Harry `Hap'' Holmes Memorial Award (fewest goals against), and Aldege "Baz" Bastien Memorial Award for outstanding goaltending. Finally, in 1988 Casey made his NHL debut. That season, he made 55 appearances, the first of six consecutive 50+ game seasons.

In 1990-1991, Casey helped the team make it all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Penguins star Mario Lemieux split North Stars defensemen Neil Wilkinson and Shawn Chambers to beat Casey. The Stars lost the series, and that moment is the first of Casey used in the 2010 “History Will Be Made” NHL play-off commercials.

After two more seasons with the Stars and an All-Star appearance in 1993, Casey was traded to Boston as part of a deal for Andy Moog that also sent Gord Murphy to the Stars. After one season with the Bruins, he signed as a free agent with the Blues. Again, he helped his team to the Cup finals, this time against Steve Yzerman and the Red Wings. The series went to the second overtime of Game Seven, when Yzerman beat Casey with a shot rifled over his shoulder. It was a bitter moment for Casey and Blues fans, and the second moment used in the 2010 play-off ads.

Quad City selects D Dmitri Mironov



1998 ASG
x1 Top 10 Defenseman Points (10th '98)
260PTS in 556GP

Quote:
Originally Posted by LoH
For the next three seasons, Mironov was a full-time Leaf, unleashing his hard shot on opposing netminders. But while waiting for the 1995-96 season to begin, Mironov was traded with a draft choice to the Penguins for Larry Murphy. After a year and a bit with the Penguins, Pittsburgh traded "Tree" to the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.

Mironov played in California until March 1998 when he was sent to Detroit as defense insurance for the Red WingsÕ march to the Stanley Cup. It worked, and Mironov can now proudly boast of a Stanley Cup championship ring from the 1997-98 season. By 1998-99, he had become a Washington Capital. Dmitri has a brother who also made the NHL--Boris Mironov.

There were also invitations to join the national team. Mironov made his debut at the Izvestia Cup tournament in 1991. That was followed by the World Championships in Finland, where he made the second All-Star team. It was at that championship that Mironov was spotted by scouts and put on the draft list of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

In 1992 the Russians sent a very young team to the Olympics in France. At 25, Mironov was the most experienced defenseman. But they won the ice hockey tournament, beating the Eric Lindros-led Team Canada in the final. Two-thirds of the players from that Russian team are now in the NHL.

He then played seven games for the Leafs at season's end, scored one goal and got a broken nose. His real debut came the next year. He had to get used to the tight game schedule, a completely new style of playing and constant changes of partners. Toronto head coach Pat Burns even tried Mironov out as a forward. It was the best season for the Maple Leafs in the 1990s.

After two poor conference finals in a row, the Leafs began a string of trades. Mironov was sent to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for defenseman Larry Murphy. In Pittsburgh, Mironov's game didn't click, so Dmitri was careful in his next trade. The Anaheim Mighty Ducks were a very young team, only three years into their franchise. Before the season started, bookmakers were giving them 150-1 odds. But Mironov came to the team with one of the best young coaches in the NHL, Ron Wilson, and upcoming stars Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne. It could be said that the years with Anaheim were the best in Mironov's NHL career. And the power-play unit led by Mironov, Kariya and Selanne was considered one of the best in the league. Dmitri also took part in the silver medal win by Russia at the Olympic tournament in Nagano. Then came his most surprising trade of all.

He came to the Detroit Red Wings near the end of the regular season, played only three months for the team and won the Stanley Cup. And he was playing again with his former teammates Viacheslav Fetisov, Igor Larionov and Sergei Fedorov. The parade of champions was held in Detroit, but Mironov's contract expired and for some reason the new Red Wings management was in no hurry to renew it. He began to search for a new club and settled on the Washington Capitals, whose coach, Ron Wilson, wanted Mironov back in his lineup.

He instantly paid dividends for the Leafs, playing excellent hockey in their two semifinal runs. He was 4th in the 1994 playoffs in scoring by defensemen, and 3rd in the 1997 playoffs with Anaheim. He won a cup in 1998 with Detroit. He was always there to represent his country, playing in 5 tournaments and 36 games, scoring 15 points. Mironov played in the 1998 All-Star game and was top-15 in scoring by defensemen once, missing out another time by three points. He won an Olympic silver in 1998. He had 260 points in 556 NHL games.

Well, I'm going to continue to build my defense the old-fashioned way and put an offensive guy with a defensive guy. He will play next to Jimmy Fowler.

I let him fall and fall, to the point where being a 1st and 3rd-team all-star in the Soviet league in 1969 and 1970, a 9th in MVP voting and 35 international games with 3 gold medals, looks pretty damn good.

Evgeny Paladiev, D (sometimes, but not often, referred to as Poladiev)



- 5'11", 180 lbs
- Played 3 games for USSR in Summit Series. No points but 5th on the team with a +2 rating.
- USSR All-Star (1969-3rd team, 1970-1st team)
- Represented the USSR in 35 Major International Games
- World Championship Gold Medal (1969, 1970, 1973)
- Izvestia Cup (1969)
- Member of the Soviet HHOF

Quote:
One of the strongest young Soviet blueliners of the late 1960's - early 1970's, Yevgeny Poladiev represented Spartak Moscow in Team USSR. He was an extremely reliable and fearless defense player with a poweful long distance slapshot and effective body-checking and shot-blocking skills. Poladiev was one of the Spartak fans favorites during his relatively short career in the top level hockey. Like his teammate Zimin, he was drafted to the Soviet Army but never played a game for a mighty CSKA, an all-time rivalry of his home team Spartak.

I didn't think I'd need him or get the chance to draft him, but he had crept to #1 on my bottom-6 centers list.

to be honest i dont care because I plan to use him as my 3rd line center anyway , having missed david legwand by a couple of hours due to me being an alcoholic the day before

to think i drafted buchberger before legwand was a pretty rookie mistake on my part

Good. Two great years in the Soviet domestic league, four years on the national squad. This is exactly where and when he should go, in the Soviet hierarchy of things: he always went too early in previous drafts! (Hence I never ever drafted the guy.)

Quote:
The problem for Bryan Smolinski has been thinking like a winger after he has been a center his entire career.

"Most of the time it's OK, but every once in a while I'll look at Stumpy and think about where I'm supposed to be," said Smolinski, now the left wing on the line with Jozef Stumpel and Ziggy Palffy.

The move was made "to give the line a defensive conscience," Coach Andy Murray said. "Besides, in our system, you're only a winger or a center during the faceoff."

Palffy, the NHL's leading scorer and point-producer, and Stumpel are by nature offensive players, though they certainly have their defensive moments. To make the unit complete, Smolinski was brought over from centering the fourth line to be what Murray calls a "power forward."

His job is to dig out pucks in corners, screen goalies and get in opposing forwards' faces as part of the forecheck. It's not a glamorous role, but it does have its fringe benefits, such as the three goals and three assists in nine games Smolinski has amassed since moving into the position.

Smolinski will always hold a special place in my heart because of his being traded by the Penguins to acquire one of my all-time favorite players: Darius Kasparaitis.

Upon his arrival in the Windy City, Mironov continued his strong play on the Blackhawk blueline, despite missing action due to injury. After a little over three season with Chicago, Mironov was traded to the New York Rangers in January, 2003.

Aside from his appearances at the World Juniors, Mironov went on to represent his homeland at the World Championships (1996 and 2000) and the Winter Olympics (1998 and 2002).

He didn’t hold that status for long, but was a good player for a long time. Icetime numbers show that he was his team’s #1-3 defenseman from 2000 until he left the NHL in 2004. He has been a top-15 scorer among defensemen twice, and scored 307 points in 716 games. “Players” describes him as a “tremendous defenseman, strong on the man, skilled with the puck, and aggressive at both ends of the ice.” He also earned a silver medal in the 1998 Olympics and played in Salt Lake City as well.

HC Davos selects Val Fonteyne, an expert penalty killer and three-time Stanley Cup Finalist with Detroit in 1961, 1963 and 1966. Fonteyne is a veteran of 820 NHL games and 59 more in the playoffs. Post-expansion, he killed 41% of penalties for his expansion division teams. Fonteyne is the only NHLer to complete three consecutive seasons without taking a single minor penalty and the only one to record five penalty-free seasons during his career. No surprise, he never got a major penalty either.

... a swift, lightweight winger–about 5’9”, 155 lbs. who excelled as a penalty killer in his Detroit days

Quote:
...a hard-working and effective defensive forward. He is regarded by many hockey scholars as the cleanest player in NHL history

Quote:
... a tiny but speedy left winger who specialized in defensive play and especially penalty killing. On many nights he was unnoticeable to the fans, but his teammates and opponents sure appreciated his thankless play. He received little fanfare during his career, just the way the shy winger liked it.

Dawson City selects Russian standout Alexander Radulov.

Wanting a change from the North American game, Radulov ditched the NHL and returned home, plying his trade for Salavat Yulaev Ufa of the KHL. Over the past three seasons, he has emerged as one of the league's top offensive talents, currently sitting at 191 points in 160 career games. Radulov is currently the all-time assists leader in KHL history.

His time in Nashville wasn't exactly wasted either; while many Preds fans may still be irate with his decision, he did do quite well while a member of the Predators, registering a robust 95 points in his first 145 games. One day I'm certain he will return to the NHL, with or without Nashville, and bring with him the skills that have caused his stock to skyrocket while in Russia.

The Philadelphia Sting select F Scott Pellerin, who boasts an impressive peak PK resume. He was the #1 PKer in St. Louis for 3 years, when they were the 5th, 2nd, and 2nd best PK teams in the NHL.



(yes, I'm aware that had much more to do with Pronger and MacInnis that Scott Pellerin)

His time in Nashville wasn't exactly wasted either; while many Preds fans may still be irate with his decision, he did do quite well while a member of the Predators, registering a robust 95 points in his first 145 games. One day I'm certain he will return to the NHL, with or without Nashville, and bring with him the skills that have caused his stock to skyrocket while in Russia.
I was hoping he'd slip to the next draft

He can score but he's definitely in that group of questionable characters. Even in this infantile season he managed to refuse to play a few games for Ufa. I think he was demanding a trade but it didn't pan out and he may be playing for them again already.

(yes, I'm aware that had much more to do with Pronger and MacInnis that Scott Pellerin)
Lol you dirty *******. I was replying to say something along those lines.

But yeah, I assume you meant "top pk forward, right? No stats available at the mo', but I assume they were the pptoi leaders... right?
