I PM'ed #66 after I picked for VCL. He hasn't been on-line since the wee hours of the morning. Not like him to not PM a list if he's not going to be around.

NP, you weren't kidding when you said it was a complex list. But you should be able to get one or two of the guys you want.

Sorry about that guys. Les As is proud to select Alex Mogilny.

If something like this ever happens again feel free to skip me after 6 hours. Can someone please PM the next GM for me? I'm posting from work on my cell. Thanks and thanks for not just skipping me.

BM has Pawn's pick, so he'll likely announce the pick when he comes back on-line.

It wasn't someone I was looking for, but I would of gladly took him if he was around when my pick was on. I understand his last two years in the league wasn't really prolific, but he still has a very good resume.

I wondered when the first coach would be select. Ne never been picked after 167, but it's understandable (is it a word?) since with 28 teams, you can't picked a coach before having at least 6-7 core players on your team. Let's see if a run of coach will now start; the same thing happenned with the goaltenders and the defensemans through the draft.

Yeah he expressed disgust when I PM'd him the pick earlier. I told him that it's not my fault that right handed steady 2 way defensemen who could play on any pairing are valuable.

Making him announce that pick would be like a knife through the commish's heart. There are a few guys, after the first 50-75 picks, in the draft who I won't pick out of respect for another GM. I won't pick White, Ramsay or Nedomansky in the 250 out fo respect for BM.

I have HO's pick, but I'm guessing he's one of the users viewing this thread, so I'll give him a few minutes. Besides, we're waiting for kruez.

GBC,Thanks for making my pick. Here is a quote on Falaman:

Fern Flaman
"He's the toughest defenseman I ever played against."

That ringing endorsement came from no other than Mr. Hockey himself, Gordie Howe. And he was talking about Ferny Flaman, the Scott Stevens of his day.

Flaman was a rugged, no-nonsense defenseman with the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs for 15 National Hockey League seasons. He scored just 34 career goals, but Flaman was known more for his vicious body checking, his aggressive play and his uncanny shot blocking ability.

Though known as the toughest defenseman in the league, Flaman did not necessarily want that advertised.

"I've got a wife and daughter to support," Flaman told reporter Herb Ralby back in 1948. "I can't have everybody in the league after me which is what happens to a player with that reputation."

After establishing himself as a feared enforcer, thanks largely to memorable battles with the Leafs' Bill Eznicki and Gus Mortson, Flaman never went looking for a fight, though he found more than a few anyways. He was always the first player to arrive on the scene should one of his teammates find themselves in any sort of peril.

Far more impressive than his fistic ability was his feared status in the bodychecking department. In addition to Howe, Jean Beliveau, the most imposing figure of his day, held a great respect for Flaman.

"Any other player I do not worry about," Beliveau told writer Jim Proudfoot. "But when I go near that fellow, believe me I look over my shoulder."

Proudfoot was one of the few and most prolific writers of his day, establishing his archives as window at generations gone by. About Flaman he wrote:

"When hockey players talk shop, they frequently discuss the matter of who is their toughest opponent. A note of something bordering on awe creeps into the conversation when the name Flaman comes up. It is not a question of fear, for Flaman is not a vicious player, but a question of knowing that Flaman can deal a devastating body check, that he is among the most competent of defencemen in the business, and that, if aroused, he is one of the most capable fisticuffers in the league."

I wasn't aware he was such a big fan.

Here's another quote on Flaman: "NOOOO!" from HF defenceman expert Evil Speaker. I think that says it all. Having E-Speak react like that to the selection of a defenceman is maybe the biggest compliment in the draft, even bigger than me saying "That guy was great in the playoffs.

I was struggling to choose between White and his defense partner. I think this makes my decision a bit easier.

I'll take D Pat "Whitey" Stapleton. He was a three-time all-star, three-time Norris finalist, and played in the 1972 Summit Series. Stapleton was an excellent defensive defenseman, who used smart positioning and discipline to drive opponents away from the puck. He also did an excellent job getting the puck out of the zone with quick, accurate passes. Stapleton held the record for assists in a season (50) before Orr re-wrote the record books.

Quote:
[Stapleton] had become an outstanding defensive player, who did provided [sic] strong support for the Chicago goalies. "Whitey" was a very good puck handler who launched many Chicago offensive "counterattacks" with fast, accurate passes to the Black Hawk forwards.
Quote:
Along with defensive partner Bill White, "Whitey" was probably Team Canada's finest defensemen during the [1972 Summit] Series. He was always Head Coach Harry Sinden's first choice on defense when it came to protect a lead in the final minutes.
Quote:
[Stapleton] was one of Head Coach Billy Harris's first choices for Team Canada 1974. Pat was named captain of the team and along with defensive partner J.C. Tremblay would be the defenseman Harris would use in almost every crucial situation.
Quote:
While he proved to be a capable goal-scoring threat, setting up teammates with first-rate passes was Stapleton’s true forte, often threading the puck through a maze of skates and sticks to create a high-percentage shot. A three-time Second Team All-Star, Stapleton was equally adept at poking the puck away from rivals with a swift flick of his stick, teaming with the aforementioned Bill White to rate one of the best defensive duos in the league at the time.
