If your team qualifies for the playoffs, indicate so by showing how you have the players to meet the era requirements (via extra post on the roster thread).

Gill has a ton of heart.

oh, and I think Derek Roy was top-3 in terms of offense among available centers. And who says he can't kill penalties? 29% for teams 10% better at it than average. Not too shabby at all, at this level. On some teams he'd be 1st-unit caliber.

Horcoff killed 35% for teams 5% worse than average. I'm not good at weighing the usage versus the result. My gut says these two are probably about equal as far as PK resumes go.

Well, we have a spare who excelled at both RW and D, so it makes sense now that we get one who excelled at both C and LW.

Jim Conacher, LW/C



From a pure "finishes" standpoint, Jim Conacher may be the most accomplished player left to select. He was 2nd in the NHL in goals in 1949, and 19th in 1948. In assists, he had seasons in which he ranked 10th, 10th, and 16th. He was 6th and 19th in total points in his two best seasons. What's more, he's the only remaining player with four 30+ point seasons prior to expansion. And two of those times he did it in a 60-game schedule as opposed to the 70-game schedule that existed from 1950-onwards.

Best percentage seasons: 74, 67, 56, 48, 41.

It doesn't appear as though Conacher was anything special physically or defensively, but he's a worthy scoring line player at this level for sure.

Growing up in and around the Toronto area, he played in the local outdoor league until being picked by the OHA's Oshawa Generals in 1940. Nicknamed "Pencil" because of his lightweight, he began his professional career in 1941 with the Omaha Knights of the AHA, a farm team of the NHL's Detroit Red Wings. In 47 games, he scored 44 points and the club went on to win the playoff championship. His professional career was put on hold for three years during World War II. When he returned in 1945-46, Conacher played 20 games for the Detroit Red Wings, scoring a goal and six points. The rest of the season he played in the AHL with the Indianapolis Capitals where he had 47 points in just 32 games.

In 1946-47, Conacher played 33 games with the Red Wings, notching 16 goals and 29 points in 33 games. The following year he had 40 points while suiting up for 60 games. The Red Wings advanced to the Stanley Cup finals, where they lost in four-straight games to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Conacher began the 1948-49 season in Detroit, but after just four games was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks, which came as a welcome move for Conacher, who always had expressed a desire to play in the Windy City. Although not a member of the famed Conacher family that included Lionel, Ray, and Hawks' manager, Charlie, Jim Conacher once scored four goals in a game for Chicago, which prompted Charlie Conacher to joke that "maybe we ought to adopt him into the family." That week he was named the NHL player of the week, earning two free hats for his honour. In his first year with Chicago, Conacher scored a career-high 25 goals and 48 points in 55 games.

In 1949-50, Conacher dressed for 66 games, scoring 13 goals and 33 points. He played another full season in Chicago before being sent to the New York Rangers in 1951-52 where he played out his NHL career, retiring after dressing for 17 games in the 1952-53 season.

just realized that when I took Mark Hardy, I left Todd Gill as the all-time leader in points among available defensemen!

When he played within his limits he was steady enough (especially after he matured and stopped the giveaways) and the guy never stopped working or standing up for his teammates.

Gill went up against alot of better fighters like Kris King, Vukota and May. I remember him getting bloodied up by Malkoc but still kept himself up and fought.

Horcoff's team PK numbers have a lot to do with Edmonton's awful defence and goaltending in the last few years.

A couple of years ago, in a discussion about Team Canada. Craig MacTavish put Horcoff's name out there. IIRC he said Horcoff was the best forward at defending 5-on-3s in the league. I know Horcoff was one of MacT's guys, but that's high praise from a man who knows something about killing penalties.

I didn't realize Roy had as much of a PK role as he did. I guess he's one of those smaller guys whose lack of size hurts them in the puck battles at ES, but on the PK their quickness helps them cover the passing lanes.

Sorry about these late picks, been very busy lately and I figured my AAA Draft spares were just a little less important than course work.

A solid two-way player and hard worker that can can play throughout my lineup, RW Gary Sabourin



A solid defenseman that can hit, block shots, and move the puck pretty well, D Stephane Robidas



And a guy making his ATD board debut, a bit of an off the board pick who is pretty underrated in my books, D Tobias Enstrom



ES: 6 1 4 3 2*
PP: 1 1 1 1 1*
SH: 2 1 6 5 1*
OV: 1 1 2 1 1*

*=11-12 so far

.696 career adjusted PPG
12th in points among defensemen in career(top 17 already selected)

I was considering him as a legit top pairing option for the AA draft, so maybe not as much of a stretch. I like him defensively over Buf but he just doesn't have the same versatility or playoff resume. That said he's probably the most underrated dman in the league right now, although moving from Atlanta to Winnipeg will up his exposure for sure.

Defenseman Zbynek Michalek



One of the premier defensive defensemen in the NHL today, Michalek has been a premier shot blocker throughout his NHL career.

Nice pick with Enstrom, Billy. I was going to pick him sooner or later.

My pick for today is Brent Burns



A solid two-way defenseman who will round out my defensive spares.

Like all of my players are from that era, they are not hard to find at all. Check the A-Draft thread.

Regina rounds out the defense with Gord Murphy, D. I imagine he'd have been the most sought after righty in the AA. ( I do not have a righty in the top-6 LOL)



Murphy played 893 NHL games and 59 more in the playoffs. He went to the Stanley Cup finals in 1996 with Florida. GF/GA figures suggest he was his team's #1 defenseman in 1991, 1994, 1995, 2000, and #2 in 1996, 1997, and 1998.

Murphy averaged an excellent 22.70 minutes per game in his fairly long career and was used extensively in all situations: 43% of his team's powerplays and 42% of their penalty kills. Not a bruiser, he relied on smarts and positioning, not unlike his namesake, Larry Murphy, who I always thought he was a very poor man's version of.

Murphy is an effective #7 defenseman because he was above average both offensively and defensively. Our defense corps is built with puck movers next to stay-at-homers, and Murphy has the skill set to complement either well.

Was on my longlist too. Burns was Best Defenseman at the 2008 World Championships and played the most minutes for Team Canada at the 2010 World Championships. Over the 7 years in Minnesota he has developed into his 6'5 frame well, from the awkward error-prone youngster he began as. I have changed my mind about the guy over the years.

NOT if it was in 1965. Is this someone who ended his career early in the 1965-66 season?
