LOL Sidorkiewicz. He gave Marty a spot by getting injured I guess.

Jocelyn Lemieux. 18 games, 1 assist, 4 PIMS.



...in another couple of years I'll be able to use Matt "Rafalski 2.0" Taormina.

Matt Taormina was pretty solid for us last year. The limited amount he played which was usually as an injury call up.

Matt Corrente will be one of those in a few years. First round bust who even got a couple playoff games in playing as a forward. Some people may not remember he was even a first round pick at all. Like Hale, Foster, and Ahonen(Last two were first rounders right? or am i wrong?)

At least he was never as hyped as Hale, or Tallackson though!

Jocelyn Lemieux haha. Second of four groups of brother who played for us, with none of them with the team at the same time. The Broten's, Niedermayers, and Gio's being the other 3. Ain't counting Parise, Zajac, or Pandolfo. Their brother's never/haven't played in the club yet.

I thought of another one, Cale Hulse. Mediocre player, with the Devils for all of 8 games after we drafted him, but somehow got married to Gena Lee Nolin. Not bad.

Granted his brief stint with the Devils might be obscure, there's no way I can him obscure.

A lot of people who aren't old enough might not even realize he was on this team!

I think he was here for all of about 3 weeks or something. I think he may have even been involved in the Jocelyn Lemieux trade. I'm drawing a blank here haha.

I think I have a couple of Tikkanen Devils cards lying around. Always thought it was funny that those were even produced given his limited time here.

November 1, 1995: Devils trade a 1997 3rd round pick to St. Louis for Tikkanen
November 23, 1995: Devils trade Tikkanen to Vancouver for a 1996 2nd round pick

My friend had a cat named Esa T. Kitten. If/when I get a cat, I think I'm going with Antero Kiittymaki.

December 19, 1995: Devils trade Jim Dowd and a 1997 2nd round pick to Hartford for Jocelyn Lemieux and a 1998 2nd round pick
February 26, 1996: Devils trade Jocelyn Lemieux, Tommy Albelin, and Cale Hulse to Calgary for Phil Housley and Dan Keczmer

Housley was probably mentioned in this thread, but there's another guy I barely remember. If anything, I believe that was the first time I had Internet at home. I can remember having to wait like two minutes for the Housley article to load.

What did Tikkanen do in 22 days to improve his trade value from a 3rd in the 1997 draft to a 2nd in the 1996 draft?

That's some nice arbitrage on Lou's part.

Might have been the depth of the draft too?

If so, then shame on the GMs involved. I expect HF lemmings to become obsessed about reports of the supposed strength of a draft class two years of advanced, but not GMs.

In the end 1996 turned out to be pretty crappy though.

I mean, I'm sure there's a lot more to it then just that, but precieved depth of draft has to factor in at some point.

Also, I don't know what the difference in spots was. Bottom 3rd and top 4th round probably isn't a dramatic shift in talent level...

It ended up being the 38th pick in 1996 vs. the 78th pick in 1997. I think you make that deal any time you can, although it didn't pan out for us. By late '95, I think there was already a feeling that '96 was going to be an awful year. The '97 Draft was supposed to be deeper, but no draft is going to have guaranteed guys in the 3rd (ie, the 2003 3rd round only produced a handful of NHLers).

We got a prospect by the name of Wes Mason in '96. St. Louis traded their pick to Colorado who took Ville Nieminen. Nieminen was like a homeless man's Esa Tikkanen, but had a decent NHL run. He was the annoying pest on the Avs 2001 team.

Absolutely nothing. Actually, didn't he clash with Lou and say some bizarre things in the press? It's even more impressive that Lou managed to get some value for him if he had a reputation as a difficult player to keep on the leash.

Isn't Claude Vilgrain about as obscure as Vitaly Vishnevski? They both had a cult following!

WHO?

I remember this year when he scored like his first goal in 3 years or something on Marty. I'm not even sure if he had a damn point with us. Didn't he play forward sometimes too? Frickin Sutter!

McIntyre never played for New Jersey. I mean, if we want to get into obscure members of the Albany Devils/River Rats, that's a whole other ball game.
