I'm not sure how my Fleming biography of three drafts ago looks like against the one of Vecens, but now you have two to look at!

All right I'm going to take my 4th line center now. What better guy to have be coached by Dick Irvin Sr. than....

Dick Irvin Sr!!!!

Here is TDMM's bio from like a year and a half ago: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...&postcount=129

I'm trying to find what was a study on Irvin as a player by Daryl Shilling, but I for whatever reason I can't find it. Any ideas on that?

Pming next now.

Lol yeah I thought it would be a little funny to take him here.

Honestly though I do think he's among the best Cs available. Four time PCHA/WCHL All-Star, and then he came to the NHL when he was 34, and finished 2nd in the league in scoring behind Bill Cook, and I believe 4th in Hart voting. Plus from what I've read on him he was a tough player, which will fit well with Lynn Patrick who was seemingly not tough at all.

Maybe a few games, but nothing significant. Lester was largely a rover early in his career. Frank actually played both left and right wing early in his career.

Geez.. really? You're going to judge a guy's on ice performance based on his character? Unless you can find solid evidence that Bubla's drug trafficking that he committed after he retired somehow impeded his play or his relationship with his teammates, then you have absolutely no basis for this at all.

I value lockerroom chemistry and the push and pull of personalities. And given how much of an unknown player drug use is, the last thing I want in the dressing room is a convicted drug trafficker. Everyone else is free to have a different opinion. But for me, that is toxic.

I didn't knew Frank played the wing earlier in his career. Thanks for the info.

I wonder I much he played as a left wing in his career. When researching Taffy Abel and Billy Burch, his name pop up more than once as a winger.

IIRC Owen received a small bit of support in the all star voting that BM67 discovered over the summer.

I think Al Secord at this point in the draft is an excellent pick. He's a really good guy to have on a 4th line if what you want is a combination of talent and unpleasantness.

My opinion is that the conviction shows that Bubla was almost certainly a total douché, but that there have been many douchés in hockey history and that it is manageable. From a talent perspective, he is certainly a good pick where he was taken, and I don't see why Bubla, alone, should be so toxic in an otherwise good lockerroom.

Somehow, I don't think putting him on your team immediately leads to Bubla freebasing off in the corner with Phil Esposito while Ciccarelli smokes cigars and bangs ****** over the lockerroom benches like some scene from Scarface.

Thanks for making the pick EB!

A Whalers team without a Whaler would be wrong.

Inglewood round out the back end with a player described as "The Best Defenseman Nobody Talks About".

One of the NHL's highest-scoring defensemen of the last decade, but also a very good defensive player with great hockey sense and instincts. He has been leaned on heavily in Nashville and Philly, as well as internationally where he's represented Finland at 4 Olympics, 1 World Cup, and 8 World Championships. He's averaged over 22:42 minutes a game throughout his career, and that number jumps to 25:28 minutes in the playoffs. Extremely durable, and a guy who will willingly block shots and take a hit to make a play. He's a fantastic powerplay QB, and not bad on the PK either. One of those guys who looks more and more impressive every time you watch him play.

And he looks great in soft-focus. Nothing short of dreamy:

Kimmo Timonen
