The Devils are pleased to select the runner-up for the Calder in 61, at RW

Bob Nevin

Quote:
Right-winger Bob Nevin played over 1,100 NHL games for four different NHL teams. He was a fine playmaker and goals scorer who could also check and lead by example on the ice.

Nevin scored 21 goals as a rookie in 1960-61 and finished runner-up in the Calder trophy voting to teammate Dave Keon. The hard working forward played solid two-way hockey for the Leafs playing with Red Kelly and Frank Mahovlich and helped them win the Stanley Cup in 1962 and 1963. In February 1964 he was part of the package assembled to acquire star forward Andy Bathgate from the New York Rangers.

Nevin played over seven years in New York and topped the 20-goal mark five times. He helped the Blueshirts become one of the top outfits in the NHL and registered 107 points in 1970-71. A respected leader on the ice and in the dressing room, Nevin began a six-year run as team captain in 1965-66.

The Toronto Marlies select Hall of Famer

Reg Noble C/LW/D and Defender Rick Green

Quote:
Reg Noble was a winner at both the amateur and professional levels throughout his career. His consistent scoring and natural skill granted him status as one of the game's top left wings. Despite his free spirit, he was a brilliant stickhandler who played hard and earned the favor of fans everywhere. Reg formed one of hockey's great early lines with right winger Cecil "Babe" Dye and center Corb Denneny. Noble was a crowd favorite at the old Mutual Street Arena and one loyal fan used to wind up a siren whenever Noble stole the puck from an opposing attacker, sending the rest of the crowd into a frenzy. Noble's poke-check to thwart the enemy became nearly as famous as his goal-scoring exploits
Reg Noble -Legends of Hockey Bio

Quote:
Jack Adams knew of Noble’s leadership qualities, having teamed with him for four seasons in Toronto. Adams was a rookie in 1917-18 when Noble led the Toronto Arenas to the Stanley Cup, scoring 30 goals in 18 games. Noble won a pair of Cups in Toronto, serving as both player-coach and captain and added a third with the Montreal Maroons in 1925-26, where his experience helped settle a young squad. A gritty competitor, Noble suffered a fractured skull when clipped by the stick of Ottawa’s Hooley Smith in a 1925-26 game, but was back in the Maroons lineup after missing just four contests.

He was A fireplug of a player at 5-foot-8 and 180 pounds, Noble made the switch from left wing to defense with the Maroons and was a stabilizing influence on the back end. His ability to lend a helping hand was also evidenced on the scoresheet.He at one time was nhl career assists leader. He was the last original NHLer to be an active player in the league
Reg Noble -Red Wing Bio




Quote:
Rick Green One of the game's quintessential stay-at-home defencemen, Rick Green played over 800 NHL contests between 1976 and 1991. His trademark was staying in position and utilizing his 6'3', 220lb. frame to tie up opposing forwards.He never lost a battle for the puck. What he did best of all was clear the net of opposing players!
Various posters on habs board!

Quote:
He was a very effective defenceman ,probably played his best hockey in Mtl. He played a smart game, had decent instincts. He passed well, and actually formed a good pairing with Robinson in the latter time of Robinson's He was one of the best defensemen allong the boards.

The high point for the steady blueliner was helping Montreal vanquish the Calgary Flames to win the Stanley Cup in 1986.

Through the late 80s' Green's defensive excellence was a pillar of the club's success under Jean Perron and Pat Burns. He was picked to participate in the 1987 Rendez-vous series between the NHL and Soviet All-Stars and was a key figure when the Habs reached the final in 1989.

The Devils are pleased to add a little clutch scoring in a player who scored 89 game winning goals in his NHL career, on LW

Steve Thomas

Quote:
A hard-working, right-winger with good speed and a quick release, Steve Thomas entered the league in 1984-85, he became one the most consistent scorers in the game with nine 20-goal seasons to his credit.

After starting the 1985-86 season in the AHL, Thomas was recalled to the Leafs and scored 57 points in 65 games. That spring, he scored 14 points in the post-season as Toronto came within a game of reaching the semi-finals.

Thomas battled injuries his first two years with the Hawks before scoring 40 goals in 1989-90. In October 1991, he joined the New York Islanders in a trade and helped the club upset the Pittsburgh Penguins while reaching the semi-finals in 1993. Thomas set a career high with 42 goals in 1993-94 but slipped to eleven goals during the lockout-shortened season. Prior to the 1995-96 season, he joined the New Jersey Devils where his lower goal totals reflected the defensive system employed by his new club.

Feeling the need for a righty powerplay threat for the defense, the Devils are pleased to select

Jeff Brown

Quote:
Jeff Brown was a mobile defenceman who played over 700 games for six different clubs. He was a superior passer who liked to gamble by rushing with the puck or pinching in from the blueline.

He joined the St. Louis Blues in 1989-90 and immediately upgraded their power play and transition game. In 1990-91, he helped the club attain 105 points and scored a key overtime goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs in the hotly contested Norris Division final series in 1993.

Late in the 1993-94 season Brown was acquired by the Vancouver Canucks in time for their drive to the Stanley Cup finals. His mobility and experience helped the club come within one game of winning it all in a tough series against the New York Rangers.

Brown retired with nearly 600 career points and the reputation of being one of the best power play specialists of his time.

The Toronto Marlies select Lorne Carr and Jason Spezza

Quote:
Born on July 2, 1910 Lorne Carr is beleived to be the oldest living NHL er'. Lorne "Sudden Death" Carr joined the now defunct New York Americans the next season and starred with the team for seven seasons. In 1941-42, as the New York Americans were changing their name to the Brooklyn Americans. More importantly he played for the Toronto Mapel Leafs winning 2 cups over detroit. Lorne finished fifth in NHL scoring in 1942-43, earning him selection to the NHL's First All-Star Team. The next season, Carr finished third, collecting career-bests in goals (36), assists (38) and points (74), all the while accumulating just 9 minutes in penalties all season. That season (1943-44), Carr was again chosen to the First All-Star Team.He finsihed with over 200 career goals and over 420 poits in 580 nhl games
Lorne Carr- Legends of hockey Player Bio

Quote:
Jason is often compared to NHL Superstar and Hall of Famer MarioLemieux, Spezza has great size and superior offensive ability that has made him the talk of the hockey world since the age of 14. Jason Spezza has a wealth of playmaking talent. Uses his size and reach very well in the offensive zone. Displays all the tools for a great top-line center.He has deceptive top flight speed and a accurate booming shot!

The Devils are pleased to select a player who led his team in goals and points, and finished 3rd in all-star voting at right wing in both 2002-03 and 2003-04

Marian Hossa

Quote:
In the same season he appeared briefly with the Senators but his next season was delayed by a serious knee injury. In the end, he played 60 games and spent most of his time doing defensive work on the checking line. But when he began scoring goals and collecting points, he seemed to be making up for lost time. He played only two-thirds of the season, but in the voting for the Calder Trophy he came in second after Chris Drury. His solid performance also earned him selection on the NHL All-Rookie Team and once the Senators were eliminated from the post season, he made his second appearance at the World Championships.

Hossa gave the game everything he had. It was becoming clear that Ottawa was offering him the opportunity to be a major player on their team. They started comparing him with Jaromir Jagr, who at the same age conducted himself in a similar manner

In 1999-00 Hossa tied for the team league in goals with 29 and over the next three seasons topped the 30-goal mark twice and 40-goal mark once. On the internation stage, Hossa went on to represent his homeland for the third time at 2001 World Championships and for the first time at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

One of the elite players in the NHL, Hossa went on to finish fifth in leauge scoring in 2003-04 with a career 82 points (36-46-82). Although his NHL season came to an abrupt end in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, Hossa would suit up for Team Slovakia at the 2004 World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic.

Seattle is going to go younger with a player that has been compared favourably to Adam Foote, defenseman Robyn Regehr.

The Devils are proud to select a goalie who has played 60+ games for 7 straight years, and on pace for an another, and owns a stellar .930 sv% in the playoffs

Olaf Kolzig

Quote:
He played junior hockey for the New Westminster Bruins and Tri-City Americans, with whom he became the first goalie in WHL history to score a goal, in a game on November 29, 1989. He led that high-scoring circuit with a 3.48 goals-against average in 1988-89, prompting the Washington Capitals to draft him in the first round 19th overall in the 1989 Entry Draft.

In 1994, he was named most valuable player in the AHL playoffs after his Portland Pirates won the Calder Cup championship. His exploits earned him a permanent spot on the Washington roster, at first as backup to Jim Carey for three years.

During the first round of the 1996 Stanley Cup playoffs, the Vezina Trophy-winning Carey began to play poorly, and Kolzig took over admirably, posting a 1.94 goals-against average and .934 save percentage in five appearances against the Pittsburgh Penguins. In one game, which lasted into a fourth overtime period, Kolzig played all 139 minutes and 15 seconds, saving 62 of 65 Pittsburgh shots. Petr Nedved finally scored on him to give the Penguins a 3-2 victory. The Penguins won the series, but Kolzig had won the affection of the Washington fans, who nicknamed him "Olie the Goalie."

In 1997, after a disappointing season in which the Capitals missed the playoffs for the first time since 1982, Carey was traded to Boston and Kolzig earned the number-one job. He won 33 games, played in his first NHL All-Star Game, stopping 14 of 17 shots in his one period of action, and was the key to Washington's excellent performance in the 1998 playoffs. He tied an NHL record with four shutouts, and the Caps made it all the way to the Stanley Cup finals before losing to the defending champions, the Detroit Red Wings.

Kolzig has continued to be the Capitals' workhorse between the pipes, playing 73 games and a league leading 4370 minutes in 1999-2000. In 2000 he was awarded the Vezina Trophy as the league's top goaltender and was a First Team All-Star.

The Toronto Marlies select Center Marty Barry and Centre Ivan Boldirev


Quote:
Wherever he played, Marty Barry was a productive center whose work ethic was lauded by teammates and opponents alike. His stamina and dedication made him one of the most consistent and durable performers of his era. Between 1929 and 1939, he missed only two NHL regular season games

A proficient scorer, he was known by the local sportswriters as "Goal-a-Game" Barry.

If we had Cooney Weiland, we’d be here," Ross expressed of Detroit’s all-star center. "If I had Marty Barry," Adams countered, referring to the Boston center, "we’d win the Stanley Cup."

The deal was consummated in June, with Barry and Art Giroux coming to Detroit for Weiland and Walt Buswell.

That April, Adams was proven a prophet. Barry finished second in NHL scoring with 40 points and the Wings whipped Toronto to win their first title. Barry was third in league scoring the following year and led all playoff snipers with 11 points as Detroit retained its crown.

The 1936-37 season was Barry’s finest. He earned selection to the First All-Star Team, was awarded the Lady Byng Trophy and scored two goals in Detroit’s 3-0 Cup-clinching victory over the New York Rangers, including the Cup winner.

"First, they award me the Lady Byng Trophy and then I score two goals tonight," Barry said after that game. "I guess I was celebrating."

Barry led the Wings in scoring in three of his four seasons with the club and the unit of Barry, Larry Aurie and Herbie Lewis was recognized as the NHL’s most effective forward line.

"He was a very smooth centerman," teammate Carl Liscombe remembered of Barry. "He had the talent to get the puck by everyone. In that sense, Marty was one of the best."

He gained a place in the Red Wings Hall of Fame in 1944 and the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1965

Quote:
Ivan Boldirev was a smooth-skating, playmaking centre with superior puck handling skills he had a natural touch around the net. He spent 15 years in the league with six different clubs and recorded nine 20-goal seasons.

His best season came in 1981-82 when he scored 33 goals playing on a line with Dave "Tiger" Williams and Tony Currie notched eight playoff markers as the club reach the Stanley Cup finals for the first time.

He played for : Boston;California;Chicago;Atlanta;Vancouve and Detroit

Played 1052 games 361 goals and 866 points
Played in NHL All-Star Game (1978)

The Devils are pleased to select a second team all-star defenseman in 1968

Jim Neilson

Quote:
Defenceman Jim Neilson played the body well and moved the puck up ice to his forwards with consistency. He played over 1,000 games and was an underrated member of the fine New York Rangers teams of the early 1970s.

Neilson looked solid as a rookie paired with Doug Harvey in 1962-63 and became a fixture on the New York defence for a dozen seasons. In 1967-68 he played superior defence and scored 35 points, which earned him selection to the NHL second all-star team. "Chief" scored a career-high ten goals and 44 points the next year then helped the Blueshirts become one of the league's elite clubs. In 1968-69, he was paired with rookie Brad Park and was credited with making a huge difference in the youngster's game.
