He's a spare so it doesn't matter much, but I'm not sure I understand why he belongs here. We're missing some seasons of AS votes in his career, but he never received one vote for anything. On those Wings' cup teams, he was at best the 4th best defenseman behind Goldham, Pronovost, and Kelly. And I'm not sure he was even the 4th best. He survived 5 years in the O6 NHL, okay. But that's a standard we use as someone who "belongs" in the AAA draft(not good, belongs). He doesn't have much offense, so it seems like he could hit and that's about it.

I've got Reen's pick. Montréal completes the lineup with "pure goon" and native son, Georges Laraque, RW.

I'll PM Hobnobs.

We finish off our coaching staff with Tommy Sandlin, coach

He will be in charge of keeping things calm and steady.




Quote:
Already as a 25-year-old, he had the responsibility of Brynäs. The early 1970's edition is probably one of the most talented and grumpy teams in Swedish hockey history, where the brothers Stig and Borje Salming fought during practice and internal matches were sometimes tougher than the league.

Tommy Sandlin was a theorist who tested limits and new game systems. A child of his time who put the collective first. The epithet Labour (socialist) hockey was cut out for the Swedish welfare state.

A year celebrated Brynäs christmas in summer. The reason was that they wanted a better start to the season. Because Brynäs was always stronger after celebrations in december.

Being part winnipegger Ive watched several games with Ladd and being a Wings fan I saw him plenty in our division and in the playoffs. You do know there is television and internet streaming outside of Canada right?

And the Ladd debate runs on. The Edmonton Mercurys are proud to select D Dick Redmond. next pmed



Quote:
His 771 game career over parts of 14 NHL seasons were well travelled, but he was best known as a Chicago Blackhawk. He helped the Hawks reach the Stanley Cup finals in 1973. He had his best season personally in '73-74 with 17 goals and 59 points. Three years later he lit the lamp 22 times and accumulated 47 points. ... In 771 NHL games Dick Redmond scored a respectable 133 goals, 312 assists and 445 points.
Regarding the playoffs:

ROFL....I thought they don't count as ATD's? Oh well, all depends on your perspective I guess.

Picked up 'Kings of the Ice' today from the library. Skimmed through it and founf it to be a bit schizophrenic. On the one hand it has some great bios on a lot of early European and CCCP players that are hard to track down, even on the internet. It reinforced more my Shuvalov pick, I think he's worthy of a 4th line ATD slot, but it leaves out a bunch of others, more well known North Americans.

Almost 3 full pages of Esa Tikkanen, but no Cam Neely?

Adam Oates is mentioned only in regards to St. Louis and Brett Hull....barely a brief 1/2 paragraph about his stay with the Bruins, where he played longer and had 2 of his highest 3 point totals?

Tim Kerr gets a page and a half but no Poulin or Propp?

There's a Backstrom bio but no Provost or Pulford?

[undrafted French defensman, [undrafted Swede GK] and [undrafted Czech defenseman] each get a page and a half but nothing on Phil Housley, Kevin Hatcher, Mike Ramsey, Eric Desjardins or Andy Moog? Despite them all having some fairly significant international play?

Just the same, it's still pretty good....

If you ever want to think a European hockey player is the best player ever, read Kings on the Ice. That book is good for describing a player's style, but I've never seen another source so decadent with excessive praise.

You can add/drop once the draft is over. I guess you have the full lineup assassination period to do it.

Andrew Ladd is probably the worst of a bad bunch

MadArcard drafts Trojak with his last pick in every draft it seems, and I still see no reason to think that Czechoslovakian glue guy from the 1940s is worth drafting here.

I've been down the the AAA draft several times and I've honestly never heard of Benny Woit. I don't think we're at the point yet where you should be drafting guys where you have to look at their minor league credentials to sell them.

Georges Laraque? LOL.
