With my first selection, I pick D Harry Cameron. He played 8 seasons in the NHL in the 1910-1920 era, and was a point per game player, scoring 90 goals in 127 games. His nubler would be even more impressive if you included those he accumulated while playing in other leagues (which was common at the time, as the NHL was not the be all and end all it is today). Oh, and at 5'10'', he had good size for the day.
With my second pick, and undeterred at my previous failure to get a playmaking center, I select Guy Charron. Had 530 points in 734 games, he really peaked his final years in Washington where he was better than a point a game.
With my 3rd pick, I choose RW Danny Grant. He was a Calder Trophy winner, and a former 50 goal scorer with the Red Wings. Retired with 535 points in 736 games.
BTW, there are still a lot of really good players out there.

John Quilty (Calder Trophy winner in 1941 before a long service in the war. His career was cut short by injury when he finally returned.)
Brian Engblom (Solid, stay-at-home defensemen of the late 70s/early 80s Habs)
Jack Laviolette (Early, legendary Habs player. One of the three players the Canadiens were originally formed around when they were built as a "French" team to be rivals for the Montreal Wanderers. Laviolette, Newsy Lalonde and Didier Pitre; all were of French origin, but none of them spoke French and all of them were born in the rest of Canada, but the fans didn't know that and the rivalry took off!)
At 4pm, the next person is free to make his picks.
I think we'll suspend drafting for tomorrow though. It's going to be a big day with the World Cup and the Jazz Fest finale and it's supposed to be nice out. So, you CAN draft tomorrow if you want, but don't have to.
