I'm NOT up.

I'm at #217 now.

Made a trade with overpass & bluesfan94 - Ottawa Senators - and it was approved as far as I know.

Have these guys been notified

You're seriously going to discount 8 seasons of play because of one subpar season, and the speculation that he may have been on steroids?

When searching around for hockey and the link to steroids, I came across some articles that had been written indicating that a current superstars point drop-off can be linked to steroid use (personally, I think the articles are crap but, the speculation, and subsequent lack of definitive proof, are still there - similar to Krutov). Do we discount all of his previous seasons because of one sub-par season (by his standards)?

There was a time when Punch Broadbent , Lanny Macdonald and Bryan Hextall Sr. were all being drafted very close to each others as RWers with offensive talent on top of having some glue guy or physical abilities.I will exceptionally keep my opinion to myself as to who is better than who , but I think they are all pretty far from each others.

I see.

Maybe he has a Ph.D in another field like theoretical mathematical physic on top of being M.D.

Recchi is an impressive guy.

Dr. Henry Walton "Indiana" Jones had a doctorate in archeology, wasn't a medical doctor. Recchi is not a doctor of any kind. He opened his big mouth about concussions and had it ridiculed. Google it and see, since you missed the memo (and the media about it).

Mark Recchi knows me (only Brashear, Cooke and Ohlund do likewise, because I was a newspaper reporter at Canucks training camp) and I know him well enough (we played golf together in high school, had drinks, chatted on the street a few times in our ol' hometown of Kamloops, being the same generation, he a year older).

Recchi is great but overrated around here. I'll never be able to draft him because he is going before a dozen other right wingers I think wholeheartedly more worthy (though not as lucky to have played with such ideal linemates as he has). Nice guy, though. And he has a quality shot and smart, safe pass. He is not particularly fast, nor creative, nor physical. He is not the stirstick of a line but he can whip some topping and blend in well. (Excuse me, I'm thirsty, apparently).


"You come to Dr. Recchi? K, I have bridge to sell you. Good for ya head. "

Sorry about the wait boy. I got caught up in a floor hockey game with my young cousins.

Is the trade OK?

Fantastic Hooley Smith bio, Nalyd.

Some highlights I was impressed by:

2 x Stanley Cup Champion (1927, 1935)
First Team All-Star (1936)
Second Team All-Star (1932)
Points – 4th, 4th
Goals – 4th
Assists – 2nd, 3rd, 3rd
Play-off Goals - 2nd

One gets a CLEAR sense of him from your bio. Good job.

Ok I'll just go ahead and pick.

Art Ross, D

The star early era defender was big, tough, and a great stickhandler and puck rusher. But above all he was a very smart player who was one of the leading minds in hockey's development over his hockey career.

He'll play with Al MacInnis on the top pairing, which should be a strong two-way pairing and among the brainiest in the draft.

Sorry, man. I had a strong hunch you were going to take him. If for no other reason that I often like the same players you do.

If nothing else, he should team up well with Larry Robinson and Rod Langway to take a dominant lead in the "Best Team Facial Hair" contest.

i have said before that i think he would probably be a lock for HHOF if he played for a team like detroit.

NJD were famously defensive minded, but that is not the only factor. elias averaged just 18:21 per game over his career, which is really low for a 1st liner who played PP and PK. NJD also have had the fewest PP's of any team during elias' career.

i also wanted a LW.

no problem

we do seem to have similar views of things. before i picked lafleur, i thought about picking patrick roy, then forming a team of 2 way F's, great PP, and bargain offensive depth players in later rounds.
