I had a hard time deciding my last couple spots on defense. Anyone think Bert Marshall would have been a better pick than Tom Laidlaw? The other guy I was debating for the last spot was Keith Brown who was a solid 2-way defender.

Moi.

I'm even starting to regret not drafting Marshall. I think I should PM Hockey Outsider.

Sammy is coming off of his worst season on a Habs team that didnt click at all (see: Kovalev). He is not a bad pick as a fourth liner in the minor draft, just make sure you play him as a rookie
But again, look at the teams in this draft... Samsonov is a small, and soft guy, whom (decent) offensive output just don't cut it, as far as I'm concerned, for a guy who can play only on an offensive line. I wouldn't use it on two-way line, even if he isn't that bad defensively , at least not on a constant basis. There are some really tough teams in this draft, and well... I'd wonder...

Another player I was looking at on the blueline Garth Boesch. He'd make a great 2nd or 3rd pairing guy. Won 3 straight Stanley Cups in 4 years before having to return to his family farm.

"Boesch was partnered defensively with Bill Barilko. The two became famous for the "Maginot Line Knee Drop," as both players would simultaneously drop to their knees to blow enemy shots.

Boesch's career was short and sweet. Following the 1949-50 season Boesch had to return to the family farm. His father had passed away that summer and Garth had to return to "make some real money."

Surprised no one took Dave Hunter

There were a lot of good LW available for this draft.

I thought about it for a long time, they just sounded like the exact same player.

But I'll follow the advice.

Windsor drops D Tom Laidlaw and picks up D Bert Marshall

The name that sticks out for me from the early Soviets is Alexander Almetov, the center of one of the early star troikas (with Alexandrov and Loktev). Many Russian analysts argue that they were right up there with the Green Unit with respect to their understanding of the game and their chemistry. He was an incredible penalty killer, infact, i think I am gonna drop Anisin and take Almetov.

Since you've already adjusted your roster to reflect, it'll be assumed to be a done deal.

Halla ADD Alexander Almetov and DROP Viacheslav Anisin.

Eight minor league teams will lose a player who is promoted to the big league. The franchise will retain the rights of them, and they will be released by the parent club in time for the playoffs. But these teams will need a replacement for the regular season.

Omaha needs a coach while Hitch is away. Will an assistant coach step up (no UFA needed) or will a new head coach for the regular season be acquired for an interim role (UFA added)?

Whitby needs a starting goaltender for the regualr season with its best netminder getting top league work. Will the team's 2nd and 3rd goalies simply be bumped up to starter and backup, or will a UFA goalie for the season be added?

Penticton needs to fill its #1 d-man slot and place on both the pp and pk as Rod is gone until the playoffs. Will #2-#7 simply shift up in the order or will another depth defenseman be added via UFA for the regular season?

Estevan needs to also fill its #1 d-man slot. How so?

Springfield needs to get a bonafide #1 centre to help the team have a decent enough season to make the playoffs, at which time Tumba will be back. There's limited offensive centres in the organization so a UFA is almost expected, or is it?

Vancouver's fourth line left wing enforcer has been called up to the big league and rumour has it the extra forward Tanti might step in for the season, or will he?

Windsor needs to fill a spot for the regular season at top line right wing and rumour has it extra forward Houle ready, able and willing to slide right into his natural position. But will he be Goldsworthy interim replacement, or will the organization test the trade or UFA waters?

Quebec needs to fill its fourth line right wing position for most of the regular season, as its talented Finnigan is called up to the parent club in the meantime, and the question is how?

Quebec will pick up Bobby Carpenter.

Trottier will be inserted into the lineup to replace Finnigan, and our lines will be adjusted accordingly.

Hay-Irvin-Oliver
Crawford-Adams-Trottier

The Irvin line will be more of an offensive threat during the regular season, while the Crawford-Adams-Trottier line will be used as a checking line, providing solid defense and physical play.

Carpenter will serve as the 13th forward.

Should I edit my roster to reflect these changes?

Yes, edit your roster.

We will assess (and rank in our voting) your team WITHOUT Finnigan for regular season seeding. Then, afterwards, when doing playoff match-ups you can re-assert Finnigan into the line-up, fresh back from higher level competition, and playing at a higher gear in time for the playoffs (a competitive advantage in playoff match-up analysis).

Vancouver selects Alex Tanguay to replace Dave Schultz.

Tanguay will be the extra forward and Hunter and Tanti will flank Acton on the fourth line.

VCL will update our roster.

A minor league team needs a minor league coach, one that will help develop their skills and teamwork and mold them into a winner. Stunned that pappyline beat me to Bob Johnson from UW.

Not to be deterred, the Icebreakers are proud to announce the hiring of coach Red Berenson of Regina, Saskatchewan. Berenson has coached the St Louis Blues and the University of Michigan Wolverines.

1x Jack Adams trophy
2x NCAA titles
9x Frozen Fours
17 straight NCAA tournament appearances (best ever)
21 straight winning seasons
NHL draftees: Marty Turco, Mike Comrie, Mike Cammalleri, Al Montoya, Jack Johnson, Eric Nystrom, Jason Ryznar, Brendan Morrison, Mike Knuble, Aaron Ward, Chris Tamer, Jeff Norton, Mike Legg (funky scoop-shot guy), Mike van Ryn, Jeff Tambellini, a ton of others ...

Berenson was chosen as a player in the main draft, but not as a coach.

Coach
Bun Cook

Quote:
Hall of Famer Fred “Bun” Cook holds the distinction of winning seven Calder Cups in his career; no other AHL head coach has ever won more than three.

Defense

Frantisek Tikal - best defenseman 64 & 65 WC-A

Quote:
Frantisek Tikal played in close to 370 games and scored 80 goals in Czechoslovak league. The defenseman played in the 1960 and 1964 Olympic Winter Games and in the IIHF World Championships 1957-1960 and 1963-1967. In 59 games Franticek Tikal tallied 17 goals. He won six medals (two silver, four bronze) at the IIHF World Championships and also was and Olympic bronze medallist in 1964. He moved onto coaching for eight seaons in Poland and Czechoslovakia. He was named to the Directorate Team twice and to the Media all-Star Team once at the World Championships. One of the best defensemen of his era.

Lloyd Cook - 6 time all star and all-time leading scorer among defensemen in the PCHA

Art Duncan - 5 time PCHA all-star and league leading scorer in 23-24

Forward

Ernie Russell

Quote:
He played on four Stanley Cup champions while with the Wanderers--1906, 1907, 1908, and 1910. Although he played for the Wanderers, Russell maintained a membership in the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association for football and other sports. This fact did not sit well with the membership and they expelled him. As a result, he did not play hockey during the 1908-09 season.

Russell returned to action the following season and played until 1914, his last four years being with the Wanderers of the NHA. He was a fast skater and an accomplished stickhandler, and although he weighed only about 140 pounds he averaged nearly two goals per game over his career.

He is perhaps best remembered for scoring a hat-trick in each of five consecutive games and for amassing the incredible total of 43 goals in only nine games during the 1907 season. That 1907 season proved to be a good year off the ice for Russell as well. He played halfback with the Montreal AAA that year when they won the Dominion Rugby Championship of Canada.

I have been away for a few days & am just catching up. It sucks losing McNeil who was both my starting goalie & first pick. Don simmons will now be my starter & I will add Dennis Dejordy as a back up.

I have several quality players on my list who were not drafted: Walt McKecknee, Hy buller, Hugh bolton, gerry Odrowski, Howie Young, Billy Harris (think Leafs not Isles), larry Popein. dutch Reibel.

The Penticton Vees juggle its defensive pairings to accommodate Seiling's absence and ADD Jocelyn Gučvremont, a 6'2 player of the seventies who scored 307 points in 571 NHL games (21 points in 41 NHL playoff games), was selected for the Summit Series in 1972, played in the all-star game in 1974, led the Sabres in plus/minus with +47 the year after he helped them go to the Stanley Cup finals, a decent career after winning two Memorial Cups and being drafted 3rd overall. He is not at all physical despite his size, but is known to play sound positionally, with great puckhandling skills. He slides into the seventh defenseman slot and may see some time on the powerplay, where in his Sabres days he had the notoriety of being the only blueliner on the powerplay (due to plenty of scoring wingers on Buffalo).

Before coaching, Billy Reay had a good hockey career and so may be UFA pick up worthy prior to the playoffs, so is put on the UFA list (feel free to keep adding UFA candidates this week if you come across any more):

Billy Reay, center



267 points in 479 NHL games (29 points in 63 NHL playoff games)

Quote:
...an accomplished NHL centreman in the sparkplug style of the NHL's 1940s... traded to the Montreal Canadiens. At the Forum, he became a solid, two-way centreman, second only to the great Elmer Lach. During his eight seasons with the Habs, Reay twice scored 22 goals and won two Stanley Cups, one in 1946 and the other in 1953... Reay retired as one of only two players to win a Memorial Cup with the St. Boniface Juniors--an Allan Cup with the Quebec Seniors--and a Stanley Cup with the Canadiens.
http://www.legendsofhockey.net:8080/...p?player=14087

The year after the first Stanley Cup win, second liner Reay tied first liner Rocket Richard in playoff goal scoring (with 6 each) as the Habs lost the Cup to the Leafs in six games.

Guess who this UFA is.

He has represented his country as a starting goaltender at the world juniors (where picked Most Outstanding Goaltender), world championships (beat Lundqvist's Sweden), World Cup (one start, a win) and Olympics (1 win, lost quarters). He set the NCAA record for most saves in a game with 77, his team's MVP, division's rookie of the year and region's playoff MVP. He plays the puck aggressively and likes to pass across the neutral zone, creating oddman rushes. In the 2006-07 NHL season he broke the franchise record for saves in a game with 56. He has three consecutive winning seasons with .900+ save percentage. He has stopped 6 of the 7 penalty shots he's ever faced at the NHL level and has a 13-7 win-loss record in the shootouts. Oh,... by the way, he was the first goalie to ever be drafted first overall in the NHL and has the longest ever NHL contract worth $67.5 million.
