Sorry about the long wait, I've been wavering between a couple players. Philadelphia will complete their starting 12 forwards with the selection of LW Dave Trottier

My pick is still 8 away, but with a couple GM's having back-to-back picks we may make it there quickly. I'm not going to be around most of the night...who can take a list?

Is he the most underrated pre-NHLer?

Either way, you do a very nice job of picking up players from that era deserving of selection.

Yes I Agree that Ernie Russell is underrated. I think he'll bring some offense to my bottom-6.

You probably don't want to bring up last year's draft threads.

Perhaps people's opinions change over the course of a year. New information or insights could come up for those players, for other players. New metrics and statistics can be introduced, and new changes to "ATD Canon" can all be shifted in 12 months.

Please get over it.

I never said I wasn't "over it", I said it's pretty funny looking back at how things HAVE changed.

I think Ernie Russell probably is underrated offensively compared to other early era players, but does he bring anything but offense? Most teams aren't going to have offense-only forwards in their bottom 6.

Thanks for announcing the pick. There's a ton of information on the Montreal Canadiens of the 1970s out there because the Gazette is featured prominently in google archives. I'm in the midst of making a comprehensive Houle profile. I really think he's been underrated in the ATD for two reasons: 1) He jumped to the WHA for a few years in the middle of his career, which takes away from the time he would spend on the "best Canadiens role players" lists and 2) his career as a crappy GM overshadows his playing career.

But while working on the profile of Houle, a few things stand out:
1) He seems like a depth penalty killer only, but at even strength, he was known throughout the 1970s as "The Shadow" for his defensive work at even strength.
2) In articles that praise the role players of the Montreal Canadiens of the era, his name is featured very prominently.
3) He actually should be listed as a F - he spent significant time at all 3 forward positions.

Great penalty killer. I honestly don't know much about his even strength game though.

Trottier barely got any all-star votes in his big offensive year (1931-32). What's up with that? My guess is that all those quotes about his defensive ability are from the second half of his career, but I'm not sure.

Don't know him, seems like a quality player from what I've skimmed over after your [JFA87-66-99] selection.....gonna have to research him some more. Do you have a bio?

Kind of funny how history, (all kinds of...) is constantly being re-written every year...

I'm still sitting here saying Billy's Flyer's were the best team on paper last year.

My apologies for misunderstanding, but the fact that you've brought it up more than once this year definitely threw me off. No biggie.
