Darryl Sutter, Coach

He's been to the finals and won the cup. He's also been 3rd and 4th in Adams voting.

BPA from ATD 2011 canon?

it is?

it was two votes in one season, it can pretty much be written off as nothing.

And I don't recall jkrx selling him at all last draft. The most substantial discussion we've had on the guy was in the chat thread a couple months ago.

we'll be picking soon.
It was established that he was a pretty solid defensive defenseman, and wasn't it two separate years? only single votes, but recognition none the less.

I was looking up what was said about Orlando last year and there really wasn't anything that I could find, so unless you saw something I didn't... and no, single votes really shouldn't be the basis for a pick at this point.

and by the way, I don't think he's useless or anything. Anytime you can get a legitimate heavyweight fighter who can play at all, if it's the appropriate time to make the pick, you should go for it.

Dave Schultz, for example, I was almost at the point where I would have taken him, as he might not be a liability on a AAA 4th line... or maybe he is! I'm on the fence.

I'll take someone I really want to learn more about..

F - Shirley Davidson

Was considered a fast skating two-way player who also was very good at stickhandling. He was also the 7th leading scorer of the 1890's and has multiple cups.

come on.

ATD2011 picks selected by chaosrevolver: 11
ATD2011 picks selected by the other 11 teams: 9

Statistically, you have 13 times as many (11/0.82) ATD2011 picks as the average team in this draft. Yes it's a trend.

The fact that he were the 2nd D on a stanley cup winning team should speak for itself even back then. The fact that he shaped up and didnt take meaningless penalties through those playoffs is also pretty telling how important he were. Him and Stewart tore things up. It was also the best defensive team in the league.

The bad rep he got from that era were because of his maffia affiliations (and I think he even dodged the army).

With my first pick I'll select a US Hockey hero...

Smart, savvy, two-way forward Mark Johnson



Secondly, I'll select...

A big strong defensive defenseman that was veteran of 1200 NHL games at more than 19 minutes per...developed in the firewagon era, played on the very end of it and then played through the clutch and grab era and astonishing, like Hal Gill, did quite well for himself even at an old age when the game opened up again (including a 20 min/night role on a Cup winner)...D Sean O'Donnell

I’m still not getting the whole “two way” thing. Is this just VI canon or does something substantiate it?

This is a good pick here and probably the right time for him. I would have strongly considered him as the complementary #5 guy if we had missed out on Snepsts.

He killed a decent amount of penalties, and was regularly used as a penalty killer on the US national team. He's also known as a very hard worker despite his size. Those are the 2 things I can see people seeing, and thinking he's a good two-way player. Personally, I see him as a guy that's above average defensively in his own zone.

While perhaps a trend, I meant more it wasn't intentional and was just how it was working out.

What's the issue?

I don't really see the issue either, I look forward to seeing more on Maxwell, Routh and especially Tureanu (if there's anything on him). Also to see if any of these guys really belong in a forty-team ATD, if chaos plans on in-depthly researching them.

Big fan of this pick, was considering him to occupy the bottom pairing with Dennis Kearns.

is that really an inside joke? I thought it was well known. Or is it just well known to the guys in our hockey pool? LOL

never said there was. Although, it's interesting that it kinda ruffled your feathers when I brought it up.

Quote:
Adjust he did, and succeed he did. After a short 10 game stint with the Minnesota North Stars, Johnson joined the Hartford Whalers in 1982. It was with the Whalers he is best remembered as a pro, playing on a line with Sylvain Turgeon and Ray Neufeld. In his first year he exploded for 31 goals and 69 points, and then set career highs in 1983-84 with 35 goals and 87 points. That year he was even invited to the NHL All Star game, where he tied an All Star game record (since broke) with 3 assists.

Injuries played havoc with Johnson's '84-85 season, which led to his trading to St. Louis. But in 1985-86 he joined the New Jersey Devils, where he would enjoy his longest NHL stop, playing 5 more NHL seasons.

In 1990-91 Johnson packed his bags and extended his career going to Europe, where he would play three seasons in Austria and Italy. He left the NHL after 11 seasons with 669 games played, 203 goals, 305 assists and 508 points.

This nice pick is the one I've been waiting for. I think he brings good offensive skills for pick 1368.

It only "ruffled my feathers" when it seemed like you had an issue with it. They were available players who I decided to take. No specific way of thinking.

Anyway, if there is no "issue" it can be dropped.

Round 7:

my three favourites:


1. Guy Hebert. He was the guy I wanted, but Dreakmur didn't want him.
2. Josef Stumpel. Brings nothing else to the table, but had risen to the top of the pile offensively.
3. Roman Cechmanek. He was the guy Dreakmur wanted, but I wasn't quite ready to take him.

Need more selling on:

Derek King. Pretty good collection of wingers taken this round, but he just stands out as the weakest. He brought nothing else to the table, and seemed a lot more reliant on his center than most scoring wingers. A bit of a glorified Hoglund.

Round 8

My favourites:


1. Ron Schock. Excellent defensive game, and what makes his offensive record any worse than Tim Young's?
2. Al MacNeil. Considering how long he lasted in the O6 era, he was a very strong pick for this late.
3. Patrice Brisebois. I hate to say it because there's a stigma attached to him, but he played pretty good minutes and for a long time.

Need more selling on:

Fred Higginbotham. What is out there on this guy?

Round 9

My favourites:


1. Tony Tanti. He had risen to the top of the pile for offensive wingers. Good value.
2. Leroy Goldsworthy. There's lots out there suggesting he was a good checker, and he posted solid numbers for a while too.
3. Walt McKechnie. Ron Schock lite.

Need more selling on:

Steamer Maxwell. Do it!
