As much as I have enjoyed this, I'm not going to be able to put the time and effort to search players out for hours on end. I'll just stick to the HOH Centers project.

Please re-consider.

In my effort to placate seventieslord's last-minute concerns over time zone differences (I truly was dumbheaded in overlooking it with the 7am eastern original time poll option), I have criticized a newbie for following the rules as it was originally set out. Gawd I suck today. A half bottle of Jagermeister is my only excuse (it's 9:30 pm Sunday here in East Asia where this Canuck works).

I feel like a heel.

A reatread for me, but he's one of the best scoring LW's left and provides more then enough speed to work the first line with Cole.

Warroad selects: LW Geoff Sanderson

He was 24 years old in 1917 when he joined the Hamilton Tigers of the OHA senior amateur league and became a goal scorer. He was a 2nd team all-star his first year, scored two goals in a playoff game against a Toronto team featuring Babe Dye en route to winning the Allan Cup his second year, was a 1st team all-star his third year and 2nd team all-star again his fourth year. Then Hamilton joined the NHL and he immediately had a career year finishing second in NHL assists in 1921-22 while continuing to score goals, finishing the season a point shy of a point per game, playing with Prodger and Malone. The following season Malone was gone, Reise was 30 years old and his assists dropped down from second in the NHL to third on the last-place team. He was 4th and 6th in NHL points among defensemen those two seasons. Reise wanted to leave the basement dwelling club and play in the west where he made more money for Saskatoon of the WCHL. He was 10th and 9th in points among defensemen and in the third year the team was in the WHL and he finished 6th in points among defensemen. The next season he went back to the NHL and was 5th in NHL points among defensmen. His second year back in the NHL he was fourth in team goals but the 35 year old would no longer put up significant assists or total points. He would go on to play two more full seasons, making the NHL playoffs for the first time as an over-the-hill veteran with the Americans in 1929 and Rangers in 1930, pointless in both postseasons, leaving the NHL thereafter at age 37 after seven full NHL seasons over the course of his career. He would play two more years of pro hockey in the IHL, described no longer as a speedy playmaker but, as "...this big powerful, broad-shouldered stalwart... is the dogged, steady plugger type".















There's more in Dreakmur's bio from last year: http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...3&postcount=12
I should have taken him in the MLD. I would be surprised if he is not the best defenseman in this draft... and by a good margin too.

Hopefully ted1971 reconsiders here, the guy seemed like an eager GM, maybe a veteran GM like chaosrevolver who was looking for a co-gm could step in and help out. Also this demons guy who was also a new GM, he hasn't made a pick yet, has anyone heard from him?

In any event with our Day 3 pick the Knights are proud to select a guy I as a gm thought about picking in the MLD, that is right winger Rick Kehoe.



The 6 time 30 goal scorer will look good as the right winger on the Knights first line next to the playmaker, Alexei Zhamnov.

well im going to need some goal scoring and Phil Kessel will do that for me. He has 2 top 7s in scoring and on a good pace to do it again this year. Lightning speed and devestating wrist shot and quick release.

The Wolverines adds the rugged stay at home defenseman Bert Marshall, D to their line-up.

You've already started drafting, please don't think of leaving. You can get through this. One pick a day. Just ctrl-F on the main page and you'll be fine.

Yeah, he's excellent. I had him top-5 heading into this.

I knew that was coming. Good pick. But watch, he won't get any respect, just like in real life.

I was legitimately wondering whether Kessel would pass a guy like Pominville this year. It wasn't even close.

Guy Chouinard, C

Top 10 Points: 6
Top 10 Goals: 4
Top 10 Assists: 9, 10

All-Star Team voting: 3rd

Team scoring placements: 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 4, 4

Played the point on the power play

That excellent year was followed by a pair of 31-goal seasons, the second of which came in Calgary, after the club had re-located there for the 1980-81 season.

Chouinard remained with the Flames through the 1982-83 season, but despite being only 26, his best years were already behind him. In 80 games that year, he did scored 72 points but just 13 goals. He finished his NHL career a year later, playing with the St. Louis Blues. After returning for the first nine games of the 1984-85 season in the IHL with Peoria, Chouinard opted to hang up the skates, his heart no longer in the competitive game.

He should, easily one of the best wingers in the draft. I had Pominville over him though considering his value checking and as a leader.

I guess I'll take a guy who has his faults, but who I had as the most talented player heading into this. Petr Nedved (C/LW).

He's more established as well. 6 seasons with 59+ points as opposed to 4 for Kessel (lockout prorated for each). But Kessel's two best seasons are now better than his... soon to be 3. and, you could say Kessel's 55 point, team leading effort was more impressive than Pominville's 68 point season when he was 4th on the team, far out of 2nd.

if you run out of room for them on scoring lines in the MLD, then certainly you go to Pominville next if you want a bit of an all-arounder on the 3rd or 4th. I think next year Kessel makes it as a MLD 2nd liner.

Wut?

There are so many offensive specialists still out there... some of them have 700+ games, and multiple 35+ point seasons. And weren't as bad defensively.

edit: LOL, you're gonna call me seventieslandlord on here from now on?

I like Tärnströms peak and I think his defensive lapses has been greatly exaggerated over the years. Not that he was good defensively. He was better when he didn't play for crap teams that relied on him for offense only.

Yes I will call u that now.

Meh, I'm still not feeling it. What are you calling his peak? When he played 24 minutes for the teams that earned the right to draft Malkin and Crosby? Or the 84 games he played for (relatively poor) playoff teams, averaging 17 minutes a game? These mediocre teams even cut his minutes drastically in his 17 playoff games, down to 12 per game.

So are we going to settle on a playoff format?

I guess we need to know if we have 11, 12, or 13 teams, eh?

Yeah, these are fun, you just have to get used to them. Use that list I sent you for reference and any of the GM's here i'm sure will be willing to do what they can to help you adjust.

As to the playoff format, I think we should see the # of teams first. 1 GM hasn't picked a player yet and we are 3 days in so let's see what he does before deciding on a playoff format.
