Alright my turn!

1. I have played for 5 NHL teams.
2. I was drafted before the Devils were the Devils, and in New Jersey.
3. I hold a record with one of my teams, and an unofficial one in the league.
4. I have played in 2 SCF's.
5. I was not a first round pick.

Again verify your guess/answer
Defeated in a playoff series? Or just any game?

John Vanbiesbrouck?

Rangers, Panthers, Flyers, Devils, Isles
Drafted in 1981
?????
Panthers in 96', Devils in 01'
Second round

By played, do you mean on a team or specifically played?

EDIT: Which record?

Holds New York Rangers all-time franchise record for most assists in a single season by a goaltender (5). (shared)[82]
Holds New York Rangers all-time franchise record for most career assists by a goaltender (25).[82]
Holds NHL all-time record for most Victories among American born goaltenders (374).[59]
Holds NHL all-time record for most Shutouts among American born goaltenders (40). (shared with Frank Brimsek)[55]

The unofficial record is for most games won by an American born goaltender! I think?

And he didn't really PLAY in 2 Finals, but I figured if I said he only played in one, and sat in the other as a backup then it would be too easy.

You could've said "I've been in two SCF"

And Koho, I hope you are not using wikipedia for the coaching clue. I just looked and they completely ignored it out of the coaches resume, use eliteprospect for that clue.

Also, change the last clue to NHL. Not just Devils, meant to write NHL.

Couldn't find a coach that was missing from wikipedia list. Only 2 I could find that played just 1 Olympic game - Moose & VBK but they don't fit. I looked at every obscure nationality that has played for NJ, nothing appeared to fit. I admit defeat on this one. It would take me hours and luck at this point.

I'll give you a hint, almost like a giveaway hint.

The player is the ONLY player from his country to play in the NHL and the coach I was talking about won a cup with New Jersey.

What a hunch...Figured since you didn't mention teams it would be a dead giveaway. That and I had a feeling that the ECF/SCF clue was a decoy. Plus it helps that you've been infatuated with him for the past week and a half.

Henrik Tallinder.

Drafted in second round.
Played for AIK, TPS, Linkoping, and Bern.
Last year with Devils
Two ECF with Buffalo
2005-2006 with Buffalo

If he wasn't the talk of the town would this have been a little harder?

Maybe.

But like I explained earlier, I figured that 3/4 were a decoy, and the way you worded 2 seemed like the number of teams would be a dead giveaway.

See if you can fool me, make some more.

Hey hasn't everyone been infatuated with him since Fayne's been out of the lineup! I wasn't even the one who made the Tallinder must go thread!

Alright I'll see what I can cook up for you.

Nope.

Didn't I do him the other day? Maybe I didn't.

He does fit a few of those though.

At first I thought it was Sykora, but that was wrong.

At least this one is challenging. I could give a big hint that would give it away easily. I'll give you a little while longer, and I'll drop another hint!

Be more specific with the award. What kind of an award? An individual one, what league? If not NHL, then just say not NHL. By few, do you mean 2+ or 3+?

My next guess, although I don't think it adds up is Fetisov.

The award is a non NHL award. And an individual award.

One other hint. Out of the 7 teams he played for, one of them he played for 3 different times.
