There is no point in more people holding up the draft in my honest opinion.

Haha, this is why running a draft is tough. there are those who want to be casual about it, and those who want to draft as quickly as possible with no hold ups. And the commish is caught in the middle.

Honestly, I was just gonna call this Amnesty Sunday, but if people want to be cutthroat...

I dont mind that some are casual but if its your turn to pick and you are here you might aswell do it. No need to wait on those who are casual.

Regina selects LW Bob "Hound Dog" Kelly, the left side version of Darren McCarty. Would have been nice to get both of them, but we have to get at least one.

We will select a starting goaltender who is probably a bit under the radar:

Pekka Lindmark, G



Quote:
One of Sweden's perhaps greatest goalkeepers of all time named Peter Lindmark, better known by his nickname "Pekka", who today lives in Piteå.
- I am proud and not ashamed of anything in my career, says Peter.
Quote:
The list of all the titles and honors as Peter "Pekka" Lindmark has won is very long. In addition to four national championships, two World Championship gold medals and an Olympic bronze, he has also won the Golden Puck in 1981, and the Golden Helmet 1987th
Quote:
Something missing on his CV is NHL games. But it is not something he regrets.
*** - No, my God ... But it had certainly been fun to go over and try it. But there is absolutely nothing that I'm sad about.
*** In fact, he was pretty close to NHL games with the Washington Capitals.
*** - If I had been listed or draftad I probably would have gone over, but since I wasn't, I would have to wait almost a whole summer before they could offer me contracts. It felt uncertain and therefore quickly signed on a contract with Malmö, saying "Pekka".
*** And there is absolutely nothing he regrets today.
Quote:
"Pekka" Lindmark also participated in three Canada Cup, and the greatest success was achieved in 1984 when they made ​​it to the final against Canada and won silver.
*** - We won against Canada in the regular season but in the final, we didn't. We lost the first match, and with Leif Boork as coach, he wanted to make some changes for the second final match. I was exchanged for poor Gote Wälitalo, who had not played a single match in the tournament so far, while Leif fielded two defensemen nor had played something. Gote did not play the second final match and I remember we were in the 5-0 after the first period. "Boorken" then threw me and the other stations so we could finally catch up to 5-4. But we still lost and it was not Goths or jaws fault that we failed, says "Pekka".
SEL-Champ 86, 88, 92, 94
WC-Gold 87, 91
SEL-Silver 87
WC-Silver 81, 86
Canada Cup-silver 84
OG-bronze 88
Goldenpuck 81
Goldenhelmet 87
WCs best goaltender 81
Helped bring both Timrå and Malmö to the SEL.

Lindmark's not under the radar at all! He would be an excellent pick right now. And that's why he was taken back at 665 in the ATD

That is amazing. I dont know if he actually belongs that far up but good for him. We will make a re-pick shortly.

Good pick... wanted him for about 5-6 rounds but Dreakmur and I couldn't quite agree on a goalie. I'm glad we took Maniago, but there is lots to like about Casey as well.

One interesting thing is that out of all the goalies worth considering around this time, he has by far the most extensive playoff resume. During that time, he played at a weighted rate of about 5 sv% points below the league average. That might not sound great, but for an AAA level goalie, it's actually pretty good. Then, consider that for his entire career, Casey was an underdog in the playoffs. The only exceptions were:

- In the first round in 1994, when the Bruins faced the Habs, who had just one fewer point, and also had Patrick Roy,
- In the first round of 1996, after Fuhr got Kypreosed, he played 4 games against the Leafs, who had the same point total.

Otherwise, it was 53 playoff games against superior opponents.

I remember Casey almost killed the wings in that '96 series. I think he's a very respectable goalie.

Anecdotally, and nothing at all against the pick at all, is it a shame that Jon Casey is victimized on two of the most famous playoff goals ever? Lemieux's "oh baby" in the '91 Finals and Yzerman's "Gretzky, had it, lost it...Detroit wins!" in double OT of game 7 of the 1996 Western Semis (?).

A couple goals that still give me chills every time I watch them.

A shame he shares with that scrub defenseman who got taken to the cleaners on Bill Lindsay's falling goal in '96 and "May Day!" in 1993.

My first pick of the round will round out my defense quite nicely. I need a righty on the third pairing and this guy has logged some pretty good minutes over his career and he has a good resume both offensively and defensively.

D Gord Murphy



I'm not 100% sure how to do the exact career ATOI (because I figure you have to weight it for games played and what not) but I have him up over 22 gaining on 23 minutes per night for over 900 games (incl. playoffs). He played in all situations, he led his clubs in even strength time very often and when he didn't he was right up there (including 1999 when it seems that just about every Panther d-man played 16/night). I have him as a #1 for about half of his career basically in ES time, which is impressive.

He brings a lot to the table. Kind of jack of all trades, master of none type of guy. Good skater, good offensively and could work the puck on the power play. Solid on the PK because of positioning and stick skills. Not much of a bruiser certainly, but he'll be paired with Luke Richardson (or Sean O'Donnell), so that'll take care of itself. A player that adapted from the high-flying 80's brand of hockey into a really steady player in the 90's while being looked at as a leader on the expansion Panthers (who made that team run under his watch in 1996).

---
Next I got a guy that adds even more speed to my forward lineup, he's a good player offensively and with his speed and smarts can get it done defensively just fine. Played a lot of power play and some PK over his career. 6x 20-goal scorer (if you give him the '94 lockout - 14 in 48 games). I'll do more on him when I have time, but he might even be a better fit for my 2nd line than 4th, we'll see...

RW/C Nelson Emerson
