There are very few certified MONSTERS in NHL history, which has to count for something.

And how many guys can combine "soft supple hands" and "unbelievable gap control" with the ability two throw multiple bodychecks at once?

I was sure he was drafted! nice pick!

This said... Nothing's better than a Vondel aside of a fire. A Top-5 beer for sure. Anybody has a clue about my next "try"? Feels like I have drank pretty much everything in sale in Quebec....

No... or yes. We cannot say. I feel he's a better pick than many guys -- the way I construct my team, I wouldn't have drafted him, but mainly because I have a specific idea in mind.

And please be confident about your picks. Some of your old-timers were great, especially Esposito who's gotta be one the most underrated netminders.

Tomas kaberle has become an all round star on the blue line kabs has superior hockey sense and this allows him to play with a healthy self-confidence and collects points because he possesses tremendous hockey smarts and has the ability to find his teammates on the ice. A fluid elegant swift skater, he can wheel with the puck and loves to join the attack. Is an excellent accurate passer.Tomas Kaberle provides constant support for his team while becoming one of the top defencemen in the league.He is 4th all time in franchise scoring for a leafs defensman.

If you look at the chain of great leafs defenceman you will see many talented leafs d-man from way back when to current Hap day King clancy Red horner Bob Goldham Jim Thomson Tim Horton Allan Stanley Carl Brewer Bob Baun Ian Turnbull Borge Salming AL Iafrate Dave Ellett Dimitri Yuskievich Tomas Kaberle

Helmut Balderis



During his heyday (roughly 1975-1985), he was amongst the very elite offensive players in the USSR (two time scoring champ, once the league MVP). Unlike many Soviet stars, he only spent 3 years with CSKA, playing most of his career with Dyanmo Riga. He was selected as best player at the 1977 World Championships, and scored over a PPG between his Canada Cup, Challenge Cup, and Super Series appearances. He is the only Latvian in the IIHF hall of fame (pending Ivanans' retirement, naturally)

When Latvia gained independance, he came out of retirement to play in the newly formed Latvian league in his 40's. He won the scoring title in 1993 with a comical 142 points in 22 games. Not that it really means anything, but it's kinda funny. How many other guys in this draft have scored at over 6 points-per-game?



*edit*

Out of curiosity, does anyone know why his name is spelled "Helmut" in some places, and "Helmuts" in others? I know Latvian has something fishy going on with the S at the end of names. Thanks.
No idea, but his name is definitely Helmut. Great pick BTW. And the stache....

Probably too early, but, he was a 7th d-man last time, so he's actually become a better pick this time around.

kruez picked him for sentimental reasons. At this point, he's around the 170th defenceman taken. It is somewhat of a futures pick, and it's not uncommon to see teams take a young defenceman for that No. 7 spot, or a young forward for the No. 13 spot.

Phaneuf will have worked his way into a top six role in this draft within the next three years.

I don't really like taking so many active players, but he is by far the best defensive foward in the NHL today and IMO, the best still on the board. Won an Olympics gold medal in 2006 and a lockout World Championship Gold in 2005.

Detroit takes C Samuel Pahlsson

1-4 is the there a better team on faceoffs than the Wings?

... And there are other guys who might become fixtures for this draft in a 28-team format. Pretty sure Brad Richards is right now, and amongst the recently drafted, Tomas Kaberle.

I'll take my chances in the face-off circle. Clarke is arguably the best face-off man of all-time .... Drury and Draper both great to follow.


Also taking a quick look at your roster, MacLeish should be the 2nd line center ... he never played the wing. Brind'amour has spent time at LW .... and he can still take the face-offs.

I have pit's pick. The Nanaimo Clippers are pleased to select C Phil Goyette.

I'd like to take your list, MXD, but it's a busy weekend in town, and I'm not sure when I'll be around. I need someone to take Murphy2's list off my hands.

I will be there to call my next pick by the clock for sure : however, that would just speed up things a little...
Too bad then.

I'm still not sure about any of my forward lines (except the 4th), but thanks for the tip, I was under the impression MacLeish also played LW.

He always played C ... he was known for coming down the right wing with the puck and then cutting to the middle of the ice and letting go a laser of a wrist shot. Goalies used to say that he actually created his own screen when he did this. Tremendously strong wrists ..... not going to show up for every regular season game ... but he was a money player, and always shined in the biggest games.

To finish off my checking line, I'll grab a RW whose NHL career only lasted 6 seasons, but was an accomplished player in Europe before that (Swedish Player of the Year in 1979). A gifted offensive player who was transformed by Al Arbour into an effective checker and became one of the most underrated pieces of the Islanders 80s dynasty.

Buffalo selects:


Anders Kallur

Send it along. I don't pick again for a couple of rounds, I need something to do besides update the picks.

The Montreal Canadiens are pleased to select C Glen Skov. This will allow us to re-unite two-thirds of the shut-down line of one of the NHL's most succesful dynasties. Skov was a three-time Stanley Cup champion who used his size abd strength to neutralize opponents' top scorers.

"[In Detroit] he continued to demonstrate his offensive prowess and his ability to play a solid, physical game.

The Red Wings brought Skov on board near the end of the 1950-51 season and, from that point on, he remained at the NHL level. His role as a forward, however, underwent a change. In the Motor City, the roster was already filled with top-line offensively oriented gunners. To secure his place farther down the ranks, Skov had to play as a two-way centre who made his top priority to neutralize the opposition's number-one centreman.

Skov proved to be very adept at his new assignment. He consistently provided the Wings with the unsung support that the star forwards needed to chase Lord Stanley with credibility. Collective success came in the form of league championships in 1952, 1954, and 1955."
