Good timing...

We'll take well-rounded two-way left winger. He was a good scorer and a good playmaker. He was a consistent hard worker, and he was good defensively - he was called "a destroyer of enemy rushes".

Most importantly, he was voted the best LW in his league 6 times over a 7 year period.

I think he's better than Bun Cook. He has better offensive finishes without playing with two clearly superior linemates for his entire career. They were direct contemporaries, and during the time their careers overlapped, Hay was clearly the bettter of the two.

Edit:

LOL, I forgot to post the name!

George Hay, LW-RW

I hope you write a great bio for him, he's a guy that could benefit from it.

George Hay was a better player than Bun Cook, but Cook was a better glue guy. Hay should be listed as LW exclusively though, right?

It is defintely pretty damning that Cleghorn never made the all-star team despite his stats, hey?

A steal compared to his draft position the last 4 drafts!

In relation to how good a player he apparently was.... not so sure. Might be a major reach.

He will play LW anyway.He'll also be a huge part of my PK squad.

Will be interested to see what you and vecens dig up on Hay. I had him last year and didn't find much support of his defensive game or physical game, but you always seem to find new info on the guys you take.

The Paul Kariya - __________ - Mike Gartner line has a lot of scoring and it will be interesting to see who the center is.

Although Selke winner Doug Jarvis fell 50 spots in this year's draft, the defensive center could form a good 3rd line if surrounded by the right wingers.

That's probably true. Hopefully, I'll dig up enough info to be able to claim otherwise later

All if Hay's all-star recognition is on left wing, but I've found quite a few articles calling him a right winger. Doesn't really matter for us, since we will be using him opposite Iginla, but I think he might be a capable off-winger for future drafts - I'll see how much I can dig up.

Edit: George Hay played RW in Senior hockey, but moved to left wing when he turned pro.

I know his older brother Reg. Hay played right wing in Senior hockey and the team won the Allan Cup. Eight year's later the younger brother George was playing with him on left wing when they won a pro league championship. I have the details of it in a book by Ron McAllister.

1. Perhaps someone is mixing up the Hay brothers. Reg. Hay definitely was a right winger in senior hockey and continued to be so when the local team turned pro. George joined his older brother's team and was playing left wing.
or
2. It is entirely possible that George had played RW for another senior team before joining his brother's great team, at which time he shifted to left wing.
or
3. Maybe the team had George on the second line RW in senior play.

More accounts of the past would be nice. For certain he was playing left wing in 1921. I'll provide book citation for that before the draft is over, if requested.

Well, there's some holes I'd like to fill and the bodies I like will probably disappear before my next turn but I can't ignore this any longer....

This guy's value seems to be dropping with every draft, precipitously. He was a slow but big, an immovable rock, deadly within 10 feet of the goal. He was abused like a mofo but stood his ground, eventually it cut his career short but in his peak there wasn't many who could bang them in the net like he could, especially on the PP.

I may have to tactically re-assess my plans to find a CTR to feed him the puck and I may also re-unite him with Propp...... The Boston Mules select RW Tim Kerr.

I actually had other plans....I was aware of him and I had someone here also PM about his availability, (along with someone else) about 5 or 6 days ago.....I had him on my radar back even then and I figured he'd be gone by now. I couldn't ignore it any longer. I just don't get how he's dropped so much....plummeting actually.

Now I have both him and Neely for 2 PP units, just need a CTR who knows how to get the puck to them. I know of a few.....they're a little soft but damn they could thread a needle with their passes.

Like I said, I may have to re-assess my lineup a little bit now.

Holy mackerel, Tim Kerr was still available? He was our #2 choice behind Rick Martin at #233! Excellent value here Bubba! John Leclair-lite. I think Kerr should be comfortably taken in the mid-200's and even a bit higher if you crave his skillset.
