He was going to be my next pick...

Hartford will take the great shutdown forward Don Marcotte

"Although Don Marcotte picked up a few games with the Bruins between 1966 and 1969, he spent most of his time mixing his one part talent and skill with his nine parts of heart desire and hustle to render himself indispensable to the NHL. His patience and dedication paid off in 1970 when he finally caught on with the Bruins in time to win the first of his two Stanley Cups.

Marcotte was then able to sustain a 12-year NHL career by being extremely useful. Although listed as a left winger, he could play all three forward positions. He usually skated with Derek Sanderson and Ed Westfall in whose company he excelled as a great two-way player and penalty killer who could dish out bone-jarring hits. In 1970-71 he tallied six short-handed goals."

Vachon's finest hour came as Team Canada's goalie in the inaugural Canada Cup tournament in 1976. Since Ken Dryden and Bernie Parent were unavailable, Vachon, Gerry Cheevers and Glenn Resch were invited to compete for the job. Vachon emerged with the hot hand and played every one of his team's games. His spectacular play helped Canada to the championship and resulted in his selection as the team's most valuable player.

One should note that Rogie played over 46,000 minutes, so that "career" is less than 25% of his career. Same goes for Tony O, who played over 52,000 minutes.

So, he was one of the best ever for a few years, then followed that up with a performance in the Canada Cup that others have said was the greatest goaltending in hockey history.

Not bad for a backup on the Aristocrats.

A horrible fit on the fourth line? How can you figure that? Have you ever seen him play?

The Kansas City Scouts are pleased to select a goalie that was named to an NHL all-star each of the first four years they were selected

Charlie "Chuck" Gardiner


Quote:
Chuck Gardiner was one of the game's preeminent goaltenders during the 1920s and 1930s. He attained NHL stardom with the Chicago Black Hawks, where he guarded the cage from 1927 to 1934. Prior to his untimely death in June 1934, Gardiner led the Black Hawks to their first Stanley Cup and recorded 42 shutouts and a goals-against average of 2.02 over only seven years of NHL service.

The Chicago Black Hawks had kept a close eye on Gardiner's development and decided to give him a chance to play in the big league during their sophomore NHL season in 1927-28. On joining the Hawks, he was initially slotted to be the understudy to incumbent Hugh Lehman, but Gardiner quickly won the confidence of coach Barney Stanley and played the bulk of the games. A major influence on Gardiner at this time was former scoring star Duke Keats, who helped him learn to outguess opposing forwards. As a result, he became one of the toughest netminders to face one-on-one.

Gardiner's hands and feet were lightning quick, as was his mind. Rarely was he caught unaware on the ice by an opposing shooter. He was also a fierce competitor who periodically left his net to thwart an attack or dove into a pile of players to seize the puck.

Beginning in 1929-30, Gardiner would play a key role in Chicago's vast improvement. In 1930-31, he recorded a league-high 12 shutouts and a stellar goals-against mark of 1.73. He also earned his first of three selections to the NHL First All-Star Team. The following year his netminding heroics brought him the Vezina Trophy. Gardiner's exceptional play was augmented by his ability to direct his teammates on the ice, a factor that led to his being chosen to serve as team captain in 1933-34.

That 1933-34 season was both triumphant and tragic for Chuck Gardiner. During the regular season, he led the NHL with 10 shutouts en route to his second Vezina Trophy. In the playoffs, his goal keeping was the backbone of Chicago's first-ever Stanley Cup championship, over the Red Wings. For the third time in his career Gardiner topped all playoff goalies in shutouts. A gifted and durable performer, Gardiner led all NHL goalkeepers by playing every minute in six consecutive seasons from 1928-29 to 1933-34.

Unfortunately, Gardiner passed away on June 13, 1934, as a result of a brain hemorrhage. His death, just a few weeks after winning the Stanley Cup, was one of the most poignant stories of the NHL's early days. The Wee Scot was considered by his peers to be among the elite netminders of his time. Many in fact referred to him as the finest ever at his craft. A member of the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame, Gardiner was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame as a charter member in 1945.
- HHOF Bio

Gardiner played all but 291 minutes over his 7 years in Chicago. His GAA dropped from a stellar 2.02 in the regular season to a incredible 1.43 in the playoffs, and his win% climbed from .437 to .643.

Well...

I feel my team has enough offense to match anyone but I cannot resist taking another goal scorer because the man is too good to pass up, even if he only ends up as my 13th forward.

I also feel he can help bride the gap between my Russians and North American considering he was born in Russia but raised in Canada.

Two Ross's and a Calder... add a couple of Stanley's to that too...

He is the great, Sweeney Schriner.

I select defenseman Jim Thomson. He is one of the greatest shut-down defensemen of all time, and played a key role on Toronto's dynasty in the late 40's. Stan Fischler ranked Thomson as the 9th best defensive blueliner ever. Thomson played nearly 800 games in the NHL and was a 2-time all-star.

I am very pleased to select defensemen Gus Mortson, the partner of Jim Thomson on the Leafs dynasty from the late 40's. He was an excellent defensive player and played tough, physical hockey. He led all defensemen in all-start voting in 1950. He wasn't a great scorer but was still effective in moving the puck up the ice.

"He (Leafs GM Conn Smythe) also elected to take a chance with a couple of young defenders, Jim Thompson and Mortson. The two caught on, Thompson the stay-at-home defender and Mortson the flashier, whirling rusher who had a nose for trouble and abrasive play. The two became known as "The Gold Dust Twins."

Over the six years that followed, the "Twins" served as a defensive foundation during a great run for the Leafs as they captured Stanley Cup victories in 1947, 1948, 1949, and 1951." (Source: Legends of Hockey)

I have a list from Kruzer and he would like to select from Team Canada in 1972 (and some other stuff to) Mr. Paul Henderson to fill the role of 4th line LW/extra forward.

Sorry about that, forgot about that until now.....
