Cesare is great. Aside from Brodeur and Robertson, he's the only backup I'd have moved heaven and earth to acquire. At this stage it's hard to get guys who played heavy minutes in the league and had good save percentages.

Legace only twice played over 45 games in a season so I would say he didn't really play heavy minutes.

and what does save% matter when the goals you let in deflates your whole team?

Have You seen the Guys record? He's the perfect definition of a back-up Goalie.

He's not terribad but I wouldn't have picked him before AA. However I dont think this will make or break your team as u said he is a back-up.

DCN Selects:

LW Matt Moulson

Moulson is an aggressive, hard-hitting left winger who has put up three thirty goal seasons in his NHL career to date.

Moulson has 241 career points in 340 career games, and has been nearly a point per game over the past four seasons.

He will slot nicely onto my second line.

Question:

I've picked Dave Creighton, a sweet selection at this stage of the draft....trying to do a bio but I have conflicting reports of his All-Star Game status.

I have the (fairly reliable) Hockey-Reference who has him listed as playing in 2 AS games and I have three other sources saying he played in 5 straight AS games.

Anyone know which it is?

Puppa has to be one of the best regular season goalies available at this level, right?

He averaged 30+ goals per season over a 9-year span and scored a lot of clutch goals. He was the first to defect directly to an American team when Detroit smuggled him out the year after he scored a couple of impressive goals at the 1984 Canada Cup. I remember him as extremely talented but with questionable work ethic. Certainly though, in big games he showed all he can do.

Rebels select Kevin Miller, a fast-skating, hard-working, defensively responsible forward who scored 20+ goals five times over a six-year period with Detroit, St. Louis and San Jose. Internationally, he scored 4 points in the 1988 Olympics and 5 points in the 1991 Canada Cup. He had led Michigan State to the NCAA championship as the team's co-captain, top assist getter and penalty taker. If he had played for an NHL contender during his best six year career span, he might have had all-time recognition as a bottom-6 role player.

He commands a lot of space from most defensemen because he can burn them with speed or moves... he has good hands and can pick off passes by batting them out of the air and finish plays any number of ways... to those assets, Miller adds good ice vision....

Though not a big player, Miller uses what size he has to play a rugged game. And he does have a mean streak. He will click out. He will fight. He will hit hard. He will be confrontational. He will hack and crosscheck and elbow... his talent more suited to center than RW, but the wings are loaded there... it is always an advantage to have a RW with a center's skills, shiftiness, speed and sense.

Miller is an energetic skater who is all over the ice. He is a better playmaker than finisher. He is not overly clever and most of his opportunities come from the forecheck. He has fairly quick hands but lacks a goal scorer's touch... he's small, but he plays much larger.

The spunky Miller takes the body well, although he doesn't have great size. He is very strong and has a low center of gravity, which makes it tough to knock him off the puck... He will get overpowered in heavy traffic areas, but that doesn't keep him from trying. Miller will frustrate opponents into taking swings at him and draw penalties... Miller has the unique ability to fill a checking or scoring role... Miller loves to play.

I thought so, I figured someone would make him a starter. He does have a short prime, some durability concerns, and no playoff record. But he's got one of the best regular season peaks and could easily be a two-time post season all-star with his 1996 season.

I'm not a DB hater, but I'm not a big fan. This is probably where he belongs with his accomplishments though. You need a certain team for him as well, most of your players need to be able to skate and you want some gritty forwards throughout the lineup.
