Dawson City select:

D Rob Scuderi

Scuderi won cups with two different franchises, playing top-3 minutes in a defensive role.

He's also a very dependable playoff performer, who will fit nicely into my top four.

Interesting I was starting to wonder where Scuderi's two Stanley Cups as a top four guy stand up here, but I wasn't really considering him. His pair was hard matched with Oveckin's line on the way to the Cup with the Penguins. He played with Doughty in LA, but I'm not sure how LA's defense was used.

I had definitely considered him a possibility this far in if not before now. Only reason I didn't go for him about 2-3 rounds back is he doesn't bring much of an offensive resume to him at all, and that's what I was lacking on my blueline outside of Galley and Zidlicky.

The Belleville McFarlands will take a defenseman who has been a key cog on a great Vancouver team for the last six years. Since 2008, this player has never averaged under 21 minutes per game for a season, and has 30+ point seasons four times. Over that time, he has been a solid contributor on the powerplay as well, averaging around 20 powerplay points per year between 2009 and 2012. This man also has a All-Star Game under his belt to go along with a playoff record of 28 points in 59 games while averaging over 23 minutes of icetime.

The McFarlands select D - Alex Edler.

Rebels select Bruce Ridpath, a star right winger with a great 5-year peak in a seven year career ended in 1911 due to a car accident with a Model-T Ford. He had about a goal a game average over his career. He helped Toronto win a championship in 1908, scored in a Stanley Cup challenge, then joined the NHA and was immediately top-10 in goals and points, followed in 1911 by a 3rd in points, 4th in goals performance prior to his career-stunting car accident. He had played on the same line as Marty Walsh both years in the NHA. He has scored goals in three Stanley Cup challenge years, winning the trophy in 1911 with 4 goals in 2 Stanley Cup playoff games. Riddy was twice 2nd in NHA playoff scoring, 1st and 3rd in playoff PIMs. He was a star on the world's top stage whose career could have been greater if not for an off-ice incident. He was included in all three of the first hockey card sets ever produced, the closest thing to all-star team selections in that era.

Riddy is also a marvelous canoeist, having performed before royalty in England and Germany.

Starting out with Toronto in the Ontario Professional Hockey League, Ridpath helped the team skate to the league championship in 1908. Unfortunately, the Toronto Professionals lost a challenge to the Montreal Wanderers for the Stanley Cup that season.

Ridpath would taste Stanley Cup success soon enough, however. In 1910 he joined the Ottawa Senators and immediately settled in on a line with Marty Walsh and Dubbie Kerr. The trio were hockey's highest scoring line, especially in the 1911-12 season. Ridpath scored an impressive 22 goals in 16 regular season games then added 4 more in 2 playoff games as the Sens won the Stanley Cup.

Born in beautiful Lakefield, Ontario, Ridpath also loved the canoe. He put on shows internationally displaying his stunt paddling and canoe racing ability.
Quote:
Ridpath played junior hockey in 1904 with the Westerns (representing Parkdale, Toronto) in the Ontario Hockey Association (OHA). As a senior, he joined the Toronto Marlboros of the OHA in 1905. He turned professional in 1906 with the Toronto team, playing in eight games, scoring 17 goals in their exhibition schedule. He played three seasons for the Torontos, helping the team to win the 1908 league title and scored a goal in a 6-4 loss to the Montreal Wanderers in a one-game Stanley Cup challenge. On January 30, 1909, he scored seven goals in one game as Toronto defeated Brantford 15-10. Later that season, he played for Cobalt in the Temiskaming League that would form the foundation of the new National Hockey Association later that year.

Ridpath signed with the Ottawa Senators in 1909-10, playing in the NHA. He played on a forward line with Gordon Roberts and Marty Walsh and rover Bruce Stuart and later with the line of Walsh, Dubbie Kerr and Jack Darragh. In 1910–11, his most productive season, he scored 23 goals in 16 games and help Ottawa win the NHA final and the Stanley Cup.

He suffered a fractured skull when he was hit by a car on Yonge Street in Toronto on November 2, 1911, and missed the entire 1911-12 season. The new Toronto Blueshirts wanted him to play for them, and Ottawa demanded $500 for his rights, but he never fully recovered from his injuries, which were initially life-threatening, ending his playing career. Benefits were held in Ottawa and Toronto for Ridpath who was a popular player.

Ridpath was appointed the first manager of the Blueshirts and assembled the Toronto Blueshirts for their first season of play in the NHA. He resigned as manager in October 1913. He was considering playing for the team, but his sight was not good enough to play.

Blackwood selects:
Joe Benoit RW

Courtesy of Legends of Hockey:
An entertaining right winger, Joe Benoit was a member of the Montreal Canadiens, providing the team with a spectacular scoring during the early 1940s. Between 1940 and 1943, Benoit was one of the team's leading point-getters. He made his presence felt in his first season with 16 goals and 16 assists in only 45 games. The following year he recorded 20 goals and 16 assists, then improved to an impressive 30 goals and 27 helpers in 49 games.
Military service prevented him from playing in the NHL during the 1943-44 season. The following year he joined the Calgary Army team in that city's senior league. In 1945-46, Benoit was back with the Canadiens, with whom he played for two more seasons before being sent to the Springfield Indians of the American Hockey League during the 1946-47 season. He didn't play the following year and in 1948-49 played one game for the Montreal Royals of the Quebec Senior Hockey League before being appointed to a coaching position with the Spokane Flyers in the Kootenay league.

International hockey fans are most familiar with Benoit as a member of the Trail (British Columbia) Smoke Eaters squad that represented Canada in the World Championships at the end of the 1938-39 season. In seven games during the World tournament, he recorded six goals and three assists for nine points, helping Canada win the gold medal. In the summer of 1940, the Toronto Maple Leafs, who held his professional rights, traded him to the Montreal Canadiens for Frankie Eddolls, who in turn was later traded to Montreal for one of the greatest Leafs of all time, Ted Kennedy

Question. At this stage of the game, is it better to have the best player or to try and have all era's equally representative ?

When I started this I targeted 5 goalies that I'd like to pick, 2 have been selected so far, those being Potvin of course and Hrudey. Today with our Day 17 pick we select 1 of the other 3, the Knights select backup goalie Hal Winkler.



Hal Winkler played in the old hockey leagues that existed before the NHL and didn't play in the NHL until he was 34. In saying that he had a league leading 15 shutouts in 1927-1928.

I say the former. You really only have to make sure of the latter in your last couple of picks.

I, for example, still have two eras to full but I'm not sweating it with 9 picks left.

It's crazy actually, I've never had to worry about eras, I just take the best player and the eras look after themselves. But this time around I've never found myself in a situation where the best player for the position I'm after is active or from before 1916.

Here's a good question, does Winkler count as pre-1916 or not?

I don't know, from what I read on him he started playing hockey in 1913 for the Winnipeg Winnipegs of the MHL Sr. league. He played there until 1919 when he went to the SSHL and in 1921 to the WCHL.
