the barn
The Black Hawks will play our home games at the Fair Park Coliseum in Dallas. The Coliseum -- built in 1936 -- sits about 1,000 yards away from the Cotton Bowl of college football fame. The 8,000 seat barn on the Texas State Fairgrounds has chain-link fences, low ceilings, awful lighting, poorly maintained ice and the warmest temperatures in the league.

The Dallas Black Hawks played in the old Central Hockey League (often referred to now as the Central Professional Hockey League). From 1967 to 1978, they were the farm team for the NHL's Chicago Black Hawks. Dallas was one of the heavyweights in the old CHL, making the league finals 10 out of the 15 seasons of CHL operations, winning four Adams Cup championships.
Notable NHL alumni:

Nanaimo Clippers
The Defending Milt Dunnell Cup Champions

Coach: Hap Day
Captain: Hap Day
Alternate Captains: Bobby Orr and Lionel Hitchman

Sweeney Schriner - Joe Primeau - Charlie Conacher
Kevin Stevens - Frank Nighbor - Ed Litzenberger
Dean Prentice - Cooney Weiland - Bobby Rousseau
Hec Kilrea - Glen Skov - Eric Nesterenko
Camille Henry

Bobby Orr - Brad McCrimmon
Lionel Conacher - Hap Day
Viktor Kuzkin - Lionel Hitchman
Gilles Marotte

Clint Benedict
Tom Barrasso
Viktor Konovalenko

PP1: Schriner-Primeau-Conacher-Orr-Kuzkin
PP2: Stevens-Nighbor-Litzenberger-Conacher-Rousseau

PK Tandem 1: Weiland-Rousseau
PK Tandem 2: Skov-Nesterenko
PK Tandem 3: Nighbor-Prentice
PK Tandem 4: Primeau-Kilrea

We will likely rotate through the first three, but the fourth tandem will get PK time if one of the other guys is off with the penalty.

The defensive pairs will vary. If we're playing from behind, Orr will be used more at ES/PP with Conacher/Day/McCrimmon/Hitchman eating up most of the minutes on the PK. If we're ahead, Orr will fit into that rotation.

Goaltending Strategy: Benedict and Barasso will share the duties during the regular season, with Konovalenko available to spell either. For those with concerns about Barasso's attitude, we feel strongly enough about Konovalenko that at the slightest sign of discontent from Barrasso, he'll be put in the press box and Konovalenko will take his place.

Defensemen Minutes: You will see us mostly play five defensmen, with Orr and Conacher getting upwards of 25 minutes a night and McCrimmon/Day/Hitchman getting closer to 20. That leaves about 10 minutes/game for Kuzkin, who will see much of that time on the PP. Hitchman can move up and play with Orr and Conacher to make up the disparities in time between the left and right side defensmen.

#4 Bobby Orr
What needs to be said about Orr? He is the greatest defenseman to play the game, great at both ends of the ice. He won three Harts, eight Norrises, two Art Rosses, two Conn Smythes and two Stanley Cups. He finished as a post-season All-Star nine times, including a remarkable eight on the First-Team. Great at both ends of the ice, Orr gives a game breaker from the back end.

#6 Charlie Conacher
A giant for his day standing at 6’1, 210, Conacher was a devastating power forward who had a shot that was said to dent the rink’s boards. He led the league in goal scoring five times and earned two Art Ross trophies. A five time All-Star, Conacher was also known for bowling opponents over and beating the goalie with great stick handling. Conacher was also awarded a retroactive Conn Smythe for his dominant performance in the Finals.

#1! Clint Benedict
Benedict is the most dominant goalie to play prior to WWII. An innovator, Benedict was a clutch playoff performer, leading his team to four Cups. He also led the league in GAA and shutouts seven times and was awarded eight retroactive Vezina trophies by Ultimate Hockey.

#3 Lionel Conacher
The Big Train was a physical specimen during his day at 6’2, 195 and a dominant athlete in several sports. At hockey, he was a great defensive defensive rock, devastating hitter and a willing fighter. He was also known as a strong puck rusher and finished in the top-5 scorers amongst defensemen seven times. Conacher was a post-season All-Star three times and finished as the runner up for the Hart trophy twice. He won the Stanley Cup twice and was awarded a retroactive Conn Smythe for “[being at] his hard hitting best”, “block[ing] more shots than Charlie Gardiner” and “lead[ing] many rushes out of his own end”.

#6 Frank Nighbor
Nighbor was a complete player, a slick passer, a good goal scorer who had tremendous speed and was excellent defensively. He is a Hart trophy and four time Stanley Cup winner. Ultimate Hockey also awarded him with six retroactive Selkes and and two retroactive Harts. One of the top two-way players of all time, Nighbor is a threat every time he’s on the ice.

#11 Sweeney Schriner
A top notch offensive LW, Schriner has two Art Ross trophies and three post-season All-Star selections to his name. He was both a good goal scorer and playmaker and had good size for his time (5’11, 175). A two time Stanley Cup winner, he had the misfortune of playing for some terrible Americans teams. Once traded to Toronto, however, he showed his mettle, scoring two goals in Game 7 to cap off a 3-0 comeback by the Leafs.

#10 Joe Primeau
Primeau was a hardnosed playmaking center who was also very strong defensively and on the penalty kill. He led the league in assists three times despite playing in an era with one of the best playmakers ever in Boucher. He also brings chemistry with Charlie Conacher as the two dominated the league together through the first half of the thirties. Unfortunately, based upon the nature of the game at that time, Primeau retired at the peak of his career (at the age of 30) to pursue his business interests.

#3 Hap Day
Day, one of the greatest leaders the game has ever seen, started his career as a top-notch defensive winger. He then moved back to play defense, where he was a mainstay on Toronto’s big three with King Clancy and Red Horner. He was a solid offensive player who was great defensively. Though not a bruiser, Day relied on solid positioning and stick work to ward off opponent’s attacks.

#25 Kevin Stevens
A huge body at 6’3, 230, Stevens brings a remarkable combination of size and skill. He has a tremendous offensive peak, where he was three times a post-season All-Star and was a key contributor to two Stanley Cup champions. He also brings a strong physical presence to create room for Nighbor and Litzenberger to work. Unfortunately, a horrific injury derailed Stevens’ career.

#10 Brad McCrimmon
McCrimmon is a steady as he goes defensive defenseman. His heady style is a perfect complement to Orr, giving him free range to work his offensive magic. He managed a second-team All-Star selection in 1988, though his style was more subdued, reflected in his strong plus-minus through the years despite going against the opponents’ best players, night in and night out.

#25 Ed Litzenberger
Litzenberger, a tall forward at 6’3, 195, was a creative offensive player and a great goal scorer. A six time NHL All-Star (only twice with the Cup winning team) he had the misfortune of playing during one of the most competitive eras for RW’s (with Howe, Richard, and Bathgate dominating the league during his peak). Litzenberger had his career derailed by a horrific car accident, but he still managed to come back and win four Stanley Cups, including captaining Chicago to one. He was also incredibly productive despite having a poor supporting cast in Chicago, finishing in the top-5 goal scorers three times.

#17 Dean Prentice
Prentice was a standout left wing, where he “excelled at backchecking, killing penalties, working the corners and jumping onto the powerplay”. He was also a good goal scorer and was the defensive conscience on a line with Andy Bathgate. According to some, Prentice is “the best player NOT in the Hockey Hall of Fame”. To go along with his remarkably consistent career, he twice finished amongst the league's top-10 goal scorers and was a post-season All-Star once.

#15 Bobby Rousseau
Rousseau was an outstanding two-way player who earned ice-time on both the power play and the penalty kill. In his best season he led the league in assists and came second in points and finished in the top-5 in assists three times and top-10 in goals twice. He was a second-team All-Star once and was a part of four Stanley Cup champions.

Coach Hap Day
Though he wasn’t the longest serving coach, Day was incredibly successful. In his 10 seasons as the Leafs’ coach, he won 5 Stanley Cups (and was 5-0 in Cup Finals). His focus as a coach was on defense, and his teams were always the best prepared teams in the league. He rewarded hard work, as status alone wouldn’t get you ice time. Ted Kennedy was once quoted as saying, “We won five championships basically because of our coaching.”

#3 Lionel Hitchman
A rock steady defensive defenseman, HItchman allowed Eddie Shore to play his freewheeling offensive style. HItchman was known as a fierce hitter and a rock defensively, but rarely played dirty. In his best season, he finished second in Hart voting, narrowly beaten out by Nels Stewart. Hitchman was also known as a great leader who won two Cups and was a long standing Bruins’ captain.

#17Cooney Weiland
Weiland is an ideal fit for a two-way line when you consider his good defense, excellent penalty killing and capable offensive ability. Even without his outlier year where he won the Art Ross, he had several campaigns where he was amongst the league’s top scorers. He was also tenacious and fits in nicely between Rousseau and Prentice. He also won two Stanley Cups.

#35 Tom Barrasso
Barasso was a very talented goalie who showed his ability to carry a team to the Stanley Cup with his two Cups with the Penguins. He was a post-season All-Star three times and has a Vezina trophy to his name. Though Barrasso did get into trouble because of his competitiveness, in this situation he will be given the opportunity to play in the regular season with the threat of being replaced by Konovalenko if he does decide to complain.

#15 Eric Nesterenko
Nesterenko brings everything you could want in a fourth line player – size, toughness, puck recovery, speed, defensive ability, and a decent amount of scoring. Though he never lived up to his billing as the next Beliveau, Nesterenko carved a niche for himself in the league as a very valuable utility player who could shadow the league’s best.

#10 Hec Kilrea
Kilrea is a good checking line winger. When given the opportunity, Kilrea showed his ability to score, on several occasions finishing amongst the league’s top scorers. However, he was known as a winger with good size for his time (5’9, 185) and a set of wheels that were unrivaled. He was a good checker and utility player who could flat out fly.

#12 Glen Skov
Skov was a big, strong center who used his size and toughness to shadow the stars of the league. He is most famous for playing with Tony Leswick and Marty Pavelich on Detroit’s vaunted checking line that helped them win three Stanley Cups. He also had decent offensive ability as shown by his numbers with the Blackhawks.

#20 Viktor Konovalenko
Konovalenko was a big game goalie who has experience in winner takes all situations. In the event that he is pressed into regular duty, he has the ability to carry a team. He’s arguably the greatest goalie in Russian history not name Tretiak. According to Tretiak, Konovalenko is the “the best European goalie he has seen.”

#4 Viktor Kuzkin
Kuzkin was a slick playmaking defenseman who was a great stick handler, passer and skater. He helped catalyze the Soviet offense from the backend. Originally brought up as a forward, his skills translated naturally to defense. “Kuzkin proved to be a major threat at both ends of the ice – playing stellar defense in his own zone and then turning up ice to attack.”

#21 Camille Henry
Henry, a small elusive player, was a great goal scorer, finishing 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 7th in goals scored during his 4 best seasons. He was also a second team All-Star once and, like Bucyk, would have likely had more except that his peak came up against the best crop of LWers ever. The only players who were post-season All-Stars during his peak between 1960 and 1964 were Bobby Hull, Frank Mahovlich and Dickie Moore.

#10 Gilles Marotte
Nicknamed “Captain Crunch”, Marotte was a devastating hitter in his compact frame. He was also a good skater and a good puck mover, topping 20 assists six times despite playing on some very bad teams. He fits in well as a seventh defenseman, able to provide either offense or defense on the bottom pairing depending on who is out of the lineup.

Player Profiles:

Jaromir Jagr


"Jaromír Jágr, born February 15, 1972 in Kladno, Czechoslovakia, now the Czech Republic) is a National Hockey League player and the current captain for the New York Rangers. Jágr wears the number 68 in honor of the Prague Spring rebellion that occurred in Czechoslovakia in 1968, also the year in which his grandfather died while in prison. During the 2005-2006 season Jágr captured his third Lester B. Pearson Award and finished second in the Art Ross Trophy and Rocket Richard Trophy races and broke many Rangers single-season team records. He is currently second (2nd) among active leaders in career goals, assists, and points, and is frequently regarded as one of the top offensive players of all time.

Jagr currently plays with the New York Rangers. He still resides in the Czech Republic during the off-season. His father, also named Jaromír Jágr, is prosperous and owns a chain of hotels. The younger Jagr began skating at age three. At the age of 16, he was playing at the highest level of competition in Czechoslovakia for HC Kladno.

Jagr was the first Czechoslovak player to be drafted by the NHL without first having to defect to the West. He was taken by the Pittsburgh Penguins with the fifth overall pick in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. He was a supporting player with the powerhouse Penguins that won back-to-back Stanley Cups in 1991 and 1992. He was the youngest player in NHL history, at 19 years of age, to score a goal in the Stanley Cup finals.

Before he had a clean grasp on the English language, he could be heard reading the daily weather forecast on Pittsburgh radio station WDVE in his broken, thickly accented English. He and teammate (and fellow countryman) Jan Hrdina were promoted as the "Czechmates", a play on the term "checkmate" from chess. Some Penguins fans realized that the letters in his first name could be scrambled to form the anagram "Mario Jr.", a reference to elder teammate Mario Lemieux.

In the 1994-95 NHL season, despite having tied Eric Lindros for the league scoring lead with 70 points, Jagr won his first Art Ross Trophy based on his 32 goals to Lindros' 29 goals. The next year, Jagr set a record for most points, 149, by a European-born player. Both his 62 goals and 87 assists from that season still stand as career-highs. His 1995-96 totals for assists and points stand as the records for right-wingers in those categories. Following Lemieux's retirement, Jagr was awarded the captaincy. From 1997-98 to 2000-01, Jagr would win four straight NHL scoring titles. In 1999, Jagr would win the Hart Memorial Trophy, as the NHL's Most Valuable Player as well as the Lester B. Pearson Award. In 1998, he led the Czech Republic's team to a gold medal at the Nagano Olympics.

In 2000-01, Jagr was struggling to find his scoring touch and faced criticisms about his relationship with coach Ivan Hlinka. With the return of Mario Lemieux from retirement, the Penguins had two superstars but friction developed between the two; Jagr held the captaincy but many fans regarded Lemieux as the talisman of the team. Also, the struggling, small-market Penguins could no longer hope to meet Jagr's massive salary demands. Thus on July 11, 2001 they traded him (along with Frantisek Kucera) to the Washington Capitals for Kris Beech, Michal Sivek, and Ross Lupaschuk.

Later that year the Capitals signed Jagr to the largest contract ever in NHL history — $77 million over 7 years at an average salary of $11 million per year, with an option for an eighth year. However, Jagr did not live up to expectations, as the Capitals failed to defend their division title and missed the playoffs in 2002. Even when the Capitals reunited him with linemate Robert Lang during summer 2002, Jagr failed to finish among the league's top scorers or make the postseason All-Star Team during his time with the Capitals. In 2002-03 Washington managed to finish 6th overall in the Eastern Conference, but lost to the upstart Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round of the playoffs despite winning the first two games.

This prompted the Caps to unload much of their high-priced talent in order to save money — not just a cost-cutting spree, but also an acknowledgement that their attempt to build a contender with high-priced veteran talent had failed. Disgruntled, the Washington ownership spent much of 2003 trying to trade Jagr, but a year before a new Collective Bargaining Agreement was to be signed, few teams were willing to risk $11 million on Jagr. On January 23, 2004 he was traded to the New York Rangers for Anson Carter and an agreement that Washington would pay approximately four million dollars per year of Jagr's salary. Jagr also agreed to defer (with interest) $1 million per year for the remainder of his contract to allow the trade to go ahead.

However, due to the new collective bargaining agreement signed before the start of the 2005-06 season, Jagr’s salary was subsequently reduced to $7.8 million, the maximum allowed under the terms of the new salary cap.

During the NHL labor dispute in 2004-05, he played for Kladno in the Czech Republic, and afterward for the Avangard ice-hockey team at Omsk in Russia.

Jaromir led the Czech Republic to Gold at the 2005 World Hockey Championships in Austria; and was elected a tournament all-star in the process. He also became a member of hockey's prestigious Triple Gold Club, players who have won a Stanley Cup, a World Hockey Championship, and an Olympic gold medal.

He started strong during the beginning of the 2005 season and the return from the lockout of the NHL. He became only the fourth player in NHL history to score 10 or more goals in less than 10 games at the start of a season. His return to dominance helped the Rangers return to the Stanley Cup playoffs, but injuries to Jagr and others contributed to a quick Ranger exit in a first round sweep of the Broadway Blueshirts by the archnemesis New Jersey Devils.

Jagr scored his 1,400th point on a power play goal against the Philadelphia Flyers on March 2, 2006, pushing him past Jari Kurri into second place all-time among European-born players. He later passed Stan Mikita to become the all-time leader.

On March 18, 2006 against the Toronto Maple Leafs, Jagr became only the sixth Rangers player in team history to break the 100-point barrier, and became the only Ranger right winger to score 100 points in a season.

On March 27, 2006 against the Buffalo Sabres, Jagr had a goal and an assist, which tied both the Rangers' single-season goal record of 52 (Adam Graves, 1993-94) and the Rangers' single season points record of 109 (Jean Ratelle, 1972-73). Two nights later, on March 29, 2006, Jagr passed Ratelle when he was the primary assist on Petr Prucha's first-period goal against the New York Islanders' Rick DiPietro. 9 days later, on April 8, against the Boston Bruins, Jagr scored his league-leading 53rd goal of the season, breaking the Rangers' single-season goals record.

After leading the league in points and goals for most of 2005-06, Jagr was passed by the San Jose Sharks' duo of Joe Thornton (125 points) and Jonathan Cheechoo (56 goals), losing both the Art Ross and Maurice Richard trophies in the final week of the season. Jagr finished with 123 points, 54 goals, and 24 power-play goals, second in the league in all three categories. He finished third in the league in both assists, with 69, and +/-, at +34. Despite being inched out by Thornton for the Art Ross Trophy and Hart Trophy (league MVP), Jagr won his third Lester B. Pearson Award as the league's outstanding player. However, just as in Washington, playoff success was not to be for Jagr, whose Rangers were swept four games to none by the New Jersey Devils. Jagr suffered a dislocated shoulder in the third period of the first game of the series, which kept him from playing at his top form for the rest of the series. Jagr had surgery on the shoulder after the Rangers were eliminated from the playoffs.

On October 5, 2006 before the first game of the 2006-07 NHL season against the Washington Capitals, Jagr was named as the 24th captain in the history of the New York Rangers, replacing Mark Messier, who retired before the 2005-06 season. Jagr then proceeded to score a goal on his very first shift in the game, just over 30 seconds into the new season.

On November 19, 2006 he scored his 600th career NHL goal on Tampa Bay goalie Johan Holmqvist, making him the 16th player in NHL history to do so. Powerplay linemate Brendan Shanahan had scored his 600th goal almost three weeks earlier, making them the first teammates in NHL history to score their 600th goal in the same season.

On February 10, 2007 against the Washington Capitals, Jagr earned an assist on a goal by Michal Rozsíval to record his 1,500th career point. He is only the 12th NHLer to reach this mark.

On April 5, 2007 against the Montreal Canadiens, Jagr scored his 30th goal of the 2006-07 NHL season to record 15 consecutive seasons of 30 or more goals. This tied the NHL record of consecutive 30-goal seasons held by Mike Gartner.

He led the New York Rangers to a sweep of the Atlanta Thrashers in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. The Rangers would fall to the Buffalo Sabres in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Jagr has represented his country many times, but his play has been hindered by injuries. In 1994 he and Martin Straka arrived in the middle of the World Championships. The fans' expectations were high as Jagr was an NHL star, but before they were able to integrate into the team Czechs lost their quarterfinal game and were out of the tournament. Jagr was also hurt in numerous other games.

The 1996 World Cup of Hockey also did not see Jagr at his best. His performance was hampered by the flu and it only underscored the poor play of the whole team. After losing 7-3 to Finland, 3-0 to Sweden and 7-1 even to relatively weak Germany, the team did not qualify for the playoffs.

All this was forgotten in 1998 when the Czech Republic won the gold medal in the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano. It was only the third gold medal for Czech or Czechoslovak sportsmen from the Winter Olympics and it is still fondly remembered.

Jagr did not play in the 1996, 1999, 2000, or 2001 World Championships where the Czech Republic won the gold medals. He was a member of the team on the 2004 World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic where the expectations were high, especially after the team won all the games in the group, but they lost in the quarterfinals game.

It was the 2005 World Championships that finally brought a gold medal to Jagr. Although he broke his finger in an early game against Germany, he played with it bandaged during the rest of the tournament and led his team to victory.

More injuries struck Jagr in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin. He was injured after a hit from Jarkko Ruutu in the game against Finland; he required stitches to his eyebrow. However, the injury was not as serious as it first seemed, and Jagr was able to play in the following games. He was unable to finish the bronze medal game due to muscle injury. Despite this trouble Jagr won the second Olympic medal in his life — bronze this time.

Martin Brodeur


"Martin Pierre Brodeur, (born May 6, 1972, in Montreal, Quebec) is a professional ice hockey goaltender who has played his entire National Hockey League career with the New Jersey Devils. In his 13-year tenure, he has led the team to three Stanley Cup championships and has taken them to the playoffs all but once. In addition to holding over thirty Devils franchise records, he is on pace to surpass Patrick Roy's career records for wins, games played and minutes played, as well as Terry Sawchuk's record for career shutouts, and Patrick Roy's record for career playoff shutouts.

Brodeur has been among the NHL's most consistent goaltenders over the past decade, winning at least 35 games each of the last ten seasons as well as being the only goalie in NHL history with six 40-win seasons. He is a three-time Vezina Trophy winner, a four-time Jennings Trophy winner, a nine-time NHL All Star, and one of only two NHL goaltenders to have scored goals in the regular season and the playoffs. In the 2006-07 NHL season, Brodeur surpassed Sawchuk and still-active Ed Belfour on the all-time wins list and Glenn Hall on the all-time shutouts list to rank 2nd and 3rd in those categories, respectively. He also passed Bernie Parent's record of 47 single-season wins with his 48th win on April 5, 2007.

Brodeur is considered a hybrid style goalie, which differs from the typical butterfly style of his native Quebec. He is best known for his great reflexes, especially with his glove hand, his puck handling, and his strong positional play.

Brodeur's success followed his father Denis, who was considered an outstanding goaltender. He played in the 1956 Olympics for Team Canada, where he helped them win a bronze medal. After his playing career was over, Denis was a longtime photographer for the Montreal Canadiens. For more than 20 years, he attended all Montreal games and practices, and when Martin was old enough he came along. Martin dreamed of playing for the Canadiens, and he idolized their goaltender Patrick Roy.

However, Martin did not start out as a goalie himself, but rather, as a forward. His goaltending career began when his coach asked him if he wanted to play as a backup at the position in a youth tournament. Martin explained:
“ The next season my coach came up to me and said, 'Do you want to be a goalie or forward this year?' It was the biggest decision of my life, and I was seven years old. I don't know why I decided, but I thought it would be fun to play goal. ”

Brodeur's play in goal soon got him noticed by fans and scouts. In 1990 he made it to the Quebec Major Junior League, the same league that produced Roy, Felix Potvin and several other NHL goalies. While playing with the Saint-Hyacinthe Laser, he made the QMJHL All-Rookie team and the QMJHL 2nd All-Star Team in 1992. He played in the league for three years before being drafted.

Brodeur was drafted in the first round, 20th overall, from Saint-Hyacinthe, in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft by the New Jersey Devils. In the 1991-92 NHL season, he was called up to the Devils for four games during the regular-season when Devils' goaltenders Chris Terreri and Craig Billington became injured, and played in one playoff game. He spent most of the season and the entire following season with the Utica Devils of the AHL. However, in 1994 Brodeur gained recognition when he won the Calder Trophy, an annual award for the best rookie in the NHL, after leading the Devils to the second best record in the league and the Conference finals in the playoffs, where they lost to the New York Rangers in seven games. He finished 2nd in goals against average and 4th in save percentage during the regular season, helping him eventually land the starting job over Terreri.

The next season, which was shortened to forty-eight games due to a four month lockout that was focused on salary cap issues, the Devils finished tied for 9th overall, 5th in their conference, and were not considered a Stanley Cup contender. However, with the leadership of Brodeur, they defeated the Boston Bruins in the 1st round after shutting them out in three of their four wins. Brodeur had another stellar performance in the second round against Pittsburgh, where he gave up only eight goals and helped the Devils soundly defeat the Penguins in five games. In the third round the Devils defeated Philadelphia in six games, giving them their first Stanley Cup finals appearance in franchise history, opposite the heavily favoured Detroit Red Wings. But the strong play of Brodeur and the Devils' infamous "trap" method would make this series lopsided in favour of New Jersey, who would go on to sweep the Red Wings while holding them to only seven goals in four games. Brodeur now had a Stanley Cup in only his second full season in the NHL. After the victory, he was quoted as saying the following:
“ In the last game against Detroit, the time from ten minutes left to one minute left was probably the longest nine minutes of my life. But from one to zero was probably the greatest time I've ever had. I didn't want the clock to run out. It was such a great feeling: people crying in the stands, people jumping up and down, people cheering. Guys couldn't even sit up on the bench. It was probably the best minute of my life. ”

After a year of success, the Devils were in the middle of the pack for most of the 1995-96 NHL season and barely missed the playoffs. Brodeur played in 77 (of a possible 82) games, setting a single-season record for most minutes played by a goalie, while having the 2nd most shutouts in the league. He was named the starter in the All-Star game for the Eastern Conference, and stopped all 12 shots he faced. He finished fourth in voting for the Vezina Trophy, which is awarded to the league's top goaltender. Brodeur also played on Team Canada during the 1996 World Cup of Hockey, where Canada lost to the United States in the gold medal match.

In the 1996–97 season, the Devils finished 3rd in the NHL and played the Montreal Canadiens in the first round of the playoffs. In the first game of the series on April 17, 1997, with the Devils up by two goals late in the game, Brodeur fired the puck the length of the ice and into the Canadiens' empty net to ensure a 5–2 victory. It was only the second time in NHL history that a goalie had scored in the playoffs, and the 5th time overall. The Devils went on to win that series, but lost in the second round to the rival New York Rangers once again. Brodeur was runner-up for the Vezina, was named to his second all-star team, and had the lowest goals-against-average by a goalie in almost thirty years, earning him the Jennings Trophy. He also had 10 shutouts and a .927 save-percentage.

The following year, Brodeur had 43 wins and 10 shutouts in the regular–season. The Devils finished first in the Eastern Conference, but lost in the first round of the playoffs to the eighth-seeded Ottawa Senators. Once again, Brodeur made the all-star team, finished as a runner up for the Vezina, and took home the Jennings Trophy.

In the 1998–99 season, the Devils finished first in the Eastern Conference for the third straight year, with Brodeur winning 39 games. He was among the contenders for the Vezina Trophy and started in the All-Star game, making his fourth appearance. However, Devils lost in the first round of the playoffs yet again, this time to the Pittsburgh Penguins. It was by far the worst playoff performance in Brodeur's 5-year career, as he allowed 20 goals in 7 games with an .856 save percentage.

During the 1999-2000 NHL season, on February 15, 2000, Brodeur was credited with his second career goal, as Brodeur was the last Devils player on the ice to touch the puck before Simon Gagne of the Philadelphia Flyers accidentally put the puck into his own empty net during a delayed penalty call against the Devils. Brodeur had previously tapped the puck behind his net, stopping an attempted wrap-around by a Flyer.

That season, Brodeur won 43 games for the second time in his career, and the Devils finished with the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference after losing the division to the Philadelphia Flyers by two points. Brodeur helped the Devils sweep the Florida Panthers in the first round, giving up only six goals in four games. In the next round against the Toronto Maple Leafs he recorded two shutouts, including one in the final game of the series as the Devils went on to win four games to two, setting up a showdown with rival Philadelphia in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Flyers took a commanding 3–1 series lead and had home ice to close out the series, but Brodeur gave up only one goal in each of the remaining three games of the series, propelling the Devils to the surprising come from behind series victory in 7 games. They went on to play the Dallas Stars in the Stanley Cup Finals, who had a higher seed but fewer regular season points, giving the Devils home ice advantage in the series. After taking game one with a 7-goal tally against Dallas, the Devils were led by Brodeur the rest of the way as he gave up only six goals in the next five games, giving the team their second Stanley Cup Championship in six years.

The next year, Brodeur topped the 40-win mark for the third time in his career, despite having an average GAA and save-percentage throughout the season. He played in the All-Star Game for the 6th consecutive season, and helped the Devils earn the top seed in the Eastern Conference. In the first round Brodeur recorded two shutouts against the Carolina Hurricanes and the Devils took the series in six games. After struggling to beat 7th-seeded Toronto in seven games, the Devils had little trouble defeating the 6th-seeded Penguins in the Eastern Conference Finals, where Brodeur added two more shutouts, both on the road. In their second straight Stanley Cup finals appearance, the Devils played a back-and-forth series against the top seeded Colorado Avalanche. But with a 3–2 series lead and a game at Continental Airlines Arena to close out the series, a lack of offense, unnecessary penalties and mediocre play from Brodeur combined to lead to two consecutive losses and a Colorado Stanley Cup victory in seven games.

In the 2001-02 NHL season, Brodeur finished among the league leaders in wins and GAA. Brodeur continued to lead the league in victories and remained a Vezina and MVP candidate. The next year, in 2002–03, Brodeur finally achieved what had been eluding him his whole career: the Vezina Trophy. He also won the Jennings Trophy again, was a Hart Memorial Trophy finalist for the league's Most Valuable Player, and was named a 1st Team All-Star and started in the All-Star Game. With one of the most impressive playoff performances of his career, Brodeur guided the Devils to their third Stanley Cup victory after dramatic seven-game series wins against the top-seeded Ottawa Senators and the surprising 7th-seeded Anaheim Mighty Ducks. He posted 3 shutouts against Anaheim and had a playoff total of 7 overall, breaking Dominik Hašek's NHL record of 6 (Hasek had only recorded his 6 shutouts for Detroit the previous year). Despite this, the Conn Smythe Trophy for playoff MVP was awarded to Anaheim goaltender Jean-Sébastien Gigučre, who became the first player not on the championship team to be named playoff MVP since Ron Hextall of Philadelphia in 1987. Some hockey writers speculated a New Jersey player did not win because there were multiple candidates, resulting in a split vote among the sportswriters who selected the winner.

In the 2003-04 NHL season, Brodeur won his second consecutive Vezina Trophy and Jennings trophy. He was also a first Team All-Star, a starter in the NHL All-Star Game, and a finalist for the Hart Trophy again. The Devils lost the Atlantic Division title by 1 point to the Philadelphia Flyers, who had obtained the 3-seed and home ice advantage against the sixth seeded Devils in the first round of the playoffs. This would be too much for Brodeur and the Devils to overcome, as the Flyers went on to defeat them in five games.

After the lockout canceled the 2004-05 NHL season, Brodeur signed a contract extension with the Devils on January 27, 2006 that will pay him $31.2 million over six years. In the 2005-06 NHL season he posted 43 wins, adding on to his NHL records of what was now five 40-win seasons and ten consecutive 30-win seasons. After struggling early in the season, his impressive play later on made him a finalist for the Vezina Trophy for the third straight year, and helped lead the Devils to a surprising comeback in the last two months of the season that resulted in them winning the Atlantic Division in the final game of the year. In the first round of the playoffs, he beat the Rangers for the first time in his career, leading the Devils to a four-game sweep. But a 4–1 series loss to the Carolina Hurricanes eliminated the Devils in the next round.

During the time in between the lockout and the time the NHL returned, the league instituted a new rule preventing goaltenders from playing the puck behind the net beyond a trapezoid-shaped zone. This was viewed by many as singling out Brodeur, who is known for his puckhandling ability, and has come to be known as the "Brodeur Rule".

In the 2006-2007 NHL season, Brodeur made his ninth NHL All-Star Game appearance in Dallas, Texas, won his third Vezina Trophy and rose on several NHL records lists. On December 9, 2006, he posted a 2–0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers for his 462nd career win, moving him into 2nd place on the all-time list ahead of active goalie Ed Belfour of the Florida Panthers. Just a few weeks later on December 26, 2006, Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 3–0 to record his 85th career shutout, moving him past Glenn Hall for 3rd place on that all-time list and 1st place among all active goalies. On February 1, 2007, Brodeur beat the Philadelphia Flyers 6–5 in overtime to take the all-time lead in overtime (non-shootout) wins with 45, passing childhood idol Patrick Roy. The Devils first 38 wins of the season were all with Brodeur in net, leading him to set a NHL record for most consecutive wins for a team.

On April 3, 2007 Brodeur tied the NHL record for most wins in a single season with 47, set by Bernie Parent in 1973–74, in a 2-1 shootout victory against the Ottawa Senators. Two days later, he broke the record with his 48th win in a 3–2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers, which helped the Devils clinch their seventh Atlantic Division title and the second seed in the Eastern Conference.

In the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the seventh-seeded Tampa Bay Lightning, Brodeur started out shaky and the Devils fell behind two games to one. He would come back strong however to finish the series, and helped the team advance in six games while passing Grant Fuhr for second place in all-time playoff victories. In the second round against the Ottawa Senators, Brodeur could not continue his stellar play and allowed 15 goals in only 5 games en route to a 4-1 series victory for the Senators.

Brodeur was selected as Team Canada's backup goalie to Patrick Roy for the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan, but did not get to play. According to his book, he has never forgiven Roy for demanding to start every game. Canada failed to win a medal after losing the Bronze medal match to Finland, a game in which many people thought Brodeur should have played.

In the 2002 Olympics at Salt Lake City, Utah, Brodeur won gold for Canada, playing in every game except the tournament opener against Sweden. He had the best GAA in the tournament and went undefeated, stopping 31 of 33 shots in the Gold Medal victory over Team USA.

He then led Team Canada to a World Cup of Hockey championship in 2004, allowing only 5 goals in 5 games. He led all goalies in GAA and save percentage while going undefeated. He had another impressive performance for the team at the world hockey championships in the following year. After this, The Sports Forecaster 2005–06 said the following:
“ Brodeur is arguably the top goaltender in the world right now. Fresh off a World Cup win in 2004, and another strong performance at the 2005 IIHF World hockey championships. Also, he's still among the best puck-handling goaltenders in the game, though the NHL's new rule changes may somewhat alter that effectiveness. ”

Brodeur was most recently selected as the starter for Team Canada in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy. He started in 4 of 6 games, but Canada failed to win a medal after losing to Russia in the quarterfinals.

Overall, Brodeur has played for Canada in:

* 1996 World Championships (Silver)
* 1996 World Cup of Hockey (Lost Final)
* 1998 Winter Olympic Games (failed to medal)
* 2002 Winter Olympic Games (Gold)
* 2004 World Cup of Hockey (Champions)
* 2005 World Championships (Silver)
* 2006 Winter Olympics (failed to medal)

Brodeur is the youngest goaltender in NHL history to reach the 300 and 400 regular season win plateaus. His 300th victory came on December 15, 2001 with a 39-save shutout against the Ottawa Senators at the Corel Centre. His 400th victory was on March 23, 2004, at the Office Depot Center in Miami, Florida, as the Devils defeated the hometown Florida Panthers. Brodeur stopped twenty-one shots, and needed to work overtime to get the win. With the victory he also became the first goaltender to win 400 games playing every game for the same team.[3]

Aurel Joliat


"Aurele Emile 'Little Giant' Joliat (Ottawa, August 29, 1901 – June 2, 1986 in Ottawa) was a Canadian professional hockey left winger who played 16 seasons in the National Hockey League for the Montreal Canadiens.

When discussions about the greatest left wing during the 1926-46 era are done, the name of Aurele Joliat is invariably mentioned. At 5'7 and 136 lbs, Joliat played for the Aberdeen from 1916 to 1917, Ottawa New Edinburgh from 1917 to 1919, Iroquois Falls from 1919 to 1921, and the Montreal Canadiens from 1922-38. He was the recipient of the Hart Memorial Trophy in 1934.

Joliat was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1947. In 1985, Joliat skated around the Montreal Forum to a huge ovation as a "special treat" for the fans. Despite falling twice, he quickly stood up and finished his skate, the tiny cap he wore back in his playing days, jauntily held in his hand, his white hair flying. In 1998, though he had been retired from hockey for 60 years, he was ranked number 65 on The Hockey News' list of the 100 Greatest Hockey Players.

His brother Robert also played professional hockey.

Joliat continued to skate along Ottawa's Rideau Canal well into his 80s and died at the age of 84 in 1986; after seeing his beloved Canadiens win their 23rd Stanley Cup earlier that year and was buried in Notre Dame Cemetery in Ottawa, Ontario.

Serge Savard

"Serge Aubrey Savard, OC (born January 22, 1946 in Montreal, Quebec) is a former professional ice hockey defenceman, most famously with the Montreal Canadiens in the NHL. He is also a local businessman in Montreal, and is nicknamed the Senator.

Savard played minor league hockey with the Montreal Junior Canadiens, then with the Omaha Knights. After playing with the Montreal Jr. Canadiens, he started playing with the Montreal Canadiens in 1966. In 1968-69, his second full NHL season, he led the Canadiens to a second consecutive Stanley Cup win, becoming the first defencemen to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoffs' most valuable player. In seventeen seasons with the Canadiens, Savard played on eight Stanley Cup championship teams: 1968, 1969, 1971, 1973, 1976, 1977, 1978, and 1979. In 1979, he won the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy for perseverance and dedication to the game. Savard played the last two seasons of his career with the Winnipeg Jets before retiring in 1983. Savard was the second last player of the Original Six era, as Wayne Cashman and his Boston Bruins advanced to the next round of the playoffs, while Winnipeg did not.

The "Savardian Spin-o-rama", which is a quick pivoting turn with the puck done in order to evade opponents, was coined by Danny Gallivan and named after Serge Savard, and not Denis Savard (who was adept at the same manoeuvre) as is often thought.

After Savard retired as a player, he was named the general manager of the Canadiens, helping them get back to the Stanley Cup in 1986 and 1993.

In 1994 he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada. In 2004 he was made a Knight of the National Order of Quebec. He is currently the chairman of the annual Canada Day festivities in Montreal. He lived a few years in Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville, Quebec. His son Marc ran for the Liberal Party in the riding of Saint-Bruno-Saint-Hubert in the 2005 federal election but lost.

In 1998, he was ranked number 81 on The Hockey News' list of the 100 Greatest Hockey Players.

He is a partner in a firm of real-estate developers, "Thibault, Messier, Savard & Associates", based in Montreal.

Pat LaFontaine


"Pat LaFontaine (born February 22, 1965, in St. Louis, Missouri) was an ice hockey center in the National Hockey League, who played his entire career for all three New York-based teams: the New York Islanders (1983–1991), Buffalo Sabres (1991–1997), and New York Rangers (1997–1998). LaFontaine recently worked for the Islanders as the senior advisor to the owner, Charles Wang before resigning on July 18, 2006.

LaFontaine began his junior career with the Verdun Juniors of the QMJHL during the 1982–83 season. The rookie contributed 104 goals and 130 assists for Verdun. LaFontaine's 234 points was tops in the league, and he was awarded the Jean Béliveau Trophy as the top scorer, out-dueling future NHL icon Mario Lemieux. His outstanding rookie season broke many records, including Guy Lafleur's 40-game point-scoring streak and Mike Bossy's 70 goals by a rookie.

Other awards LaFontaine received that season were the Michel Bričre Commemorative Trophy as the MVP of the regular season, the Guy Lafleur Trophy as the MVP of the playoffs, the Michel Bergeron Trophy as the Offensive Rookie of the Year, the Mike Bossy Trophy as the best professional prospect, and the Frank J. Selke Commemorative Trophy as the Most sportsmanlike player. Also in 1982–1983 Pat Lafontaine was chosen CHL Player of the Year.

Pat LaFontaine was selected by the New York Islanders in the 1st round as the 3rd pick overall in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft held on 8 June 1983. He started his NHL career after representing the US in the 1984 Sarajevo Olympics.

He appeared in the Stanley Cup Finals in only his rookie season, although the Edmonton Oilers won the series and ended the Islanders' reign of four consecutive Stanley Cup Championships. LaFontaine distinguished himself with a strong performance, scoring two third-period goals during the Islanders' 5–2 loss to the Oilers in the fifth and deciding game of the series.

However, his arrival was concurrent with the beginning of the end of the Islanders' dynasty, which was steeped deep in aging veterans. LaFontaine would have a promising career ahead as one of the team's best players, but he was unable to reverse the Islanders' gradual slide.

In the 1987 playoffs, LaFontaine scored a famous goal in the 4th overtime period of the seventh and decisive game between the Islanders and Washington Capitals, known as the "Easter Epic". The game was started on Saturday, April 18 and concluded just before 2 am on the 19th, Easter Sunday. "It was the most memorable moment in my hockey life," he later recalled. "Even today, wherever I go, people come up to me and start telling me where they were during the Easter Epic".

The Islanders continued to struggle, and in 1989 missed the playoffs for the first time since 1974. In the first game of his next series, in 1990, LaFontaine suffered the first of many concussions, after a controversial, open-ice hit by James Patrick of the New York Rangers. He fell on his head, and was unconscious while being taken off the ice on a stretcher. Famously, his ambulance was delayed en route to the hospital by Ranger fans who tried to turn the ambulance over. He was lost for the remainder of the series.

The 1990–91 season was another strong season for LaFontaine, but the Islanders did not have a good season, finishing a dismal 25–45–10. LaFontaine, frustrated with his situation on Long Island, turned down a four year, $6 million contract offer and refused to report to the Islanders for the start of the 1991–92 NHL season. Three weeks into the season, on 25 October 1991, LaFontaine was traded, along with teammate Randy Wood, to the Buffalo Sabres for four players, including former first overall pick Pierre Turgeon.

LaFontaine exploded offensively in the 1992–93 season with a personal-best and team-record 148 points (53 goals and 95 assists). The 148 points are also the most points ever scored by an American-born player in one season. His play-making ability enabled his linemate, Alexander Mogilny to set a team season record with 76 goals, (both LaFontaine's 95 assists and Mogilny's 76 goals still stand as the Sabres' team records). LaFontaine finished as runner-up to Mario Lemieux in the scoring race and earned a spot on the postseason NHL All-Star Second Team. He was also a finalist for the Hart Trophy as NHL MVP and the Lady Byng Trophy as the most sportsmanlike player.

During the 1993 playoffs, LaFontaine engineered another great moment: in spite of playing with a damaged knee, as well as having fallen onto the ice, he still managed to set up Brad May's overtime, series-clinching goal against the Boston Bruins.

In the 1994–1995 season he was awarded the Bill Masterton Trophy as the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to ice hockey.

LaFontaine is one of three players in NHL history to skate for all three teams based in the state of New York. The others were Mike Donnelly and former teammate Jason Dawe, although LaFontaine played his entire career in the state of New York while Donnelly also played for the Los Angeles Kings and Dallas Stars and Dawe also played for the Montreal Canadiens and Nashville Predators. LaFontaine once joked about it, saying "I got to play for three great organizations in my career and never once had to buy new license plates."

The 1996–97 season was the beginning of the end of his career. In a game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, LaFontaine was hammered by Francois Leroux with a high hit to the head, knocking him out with a concussion. This hit caused a condition called post-concussion syndrome. He was determined to return, even though the doctors advised against such an attempt. Sabres management, in conjunction with team doctors and specialists, refused to clear LaFontaine to return, and recommended he retire. LaFontaine, still believing he could play, demanded a trade, which the Sabres obliged. He was traded to the New York Rangers for a 2nd round draft choice in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft and future considerations on 29 September 1997.

In a game against the Ottawa Senators on 16 March 1998, LaFontaine accidentally collided with a Rangers teammate and suffered another concussion. LaFontaine missed the remainder of the season. And on 12 October 1999, thirty-four year old Pat LaFontaine officially announced his retirement.

He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on 3 November, 2003. "I am truly thrilled to receive this tremendous honor," said LaFontaine upon receiving the news. "Growing up in St. Louis, I always played for the love of the game and never dreamed this could ever lead to my being a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame." He was inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame in that same year.

On 3 March 2006, the Buffalo Sabres retired LaFontaine's number 16. He was also inducted into the Buffalo Sabres Hall of Fame that same year. ...for a surprise...

Since 2001, the Pat LaFontaine Trophy has been awarded to the winner of the Rangers-Islanders season series.

In 2007, LaFontaine was inducted into the Nassau County Sports Hall of Fame.


Luc Robitaille

" "Lucky" Luc Robitaille (born February 17, 1966 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada) is a retired professional ice hockey player. In a 20-year NHL career from 1986 to 2006, he played for the Los Angeles Kings (three different times), New York Rangers, Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins. Robitaille retired as the all-time highest-scoring left winger in National Hockey League history and the holder of the Kings franchise record for goals.

Robitaille starred in junior hockey for the Hull Olympiques of the QMJHL, scoring an amazing 191 points in 1985-86, and being named the CHL Player of the Year that season. However, due to perceived skating deficiencies, Luc was not drafted until the 9th round (171st overall) by the Los Angeles Kings in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft - five rounds later than Tom Glavine, whom the Kings also drafted, and who would become a star Major League Baseball pitcher instead. Only Robitaille's former teammate Dave Taylor has ever had as many as one thousand career points after being drafted so low.

Despite such an inauspicious start, Robitaille burst onto the NHL scene in 1986, garnering the Calder Memorial Trophy for rookie of the year honors after scoring 45 goals and 39 assists in his first year. He would never look back, scoring more than forty goals in each of his first eight seasons for Los Angeles (a string broken only by the shortened strike year of 1994-95), registering three seasons exceeding fifty goals in that time. In the 1992-93 season, holding the team's captaincy in place of injured captain Wayne Gretzky, he broke Steve Shutt's record for goals by a left winger with a team leading 63 and Kevin Stevens' mark for points by a left winger with a team leading 125, marks which both still stand, making him the only person to ever dethrone Wayne Gretzky as his team's leading scorer during a season. He followed that up with being the third leading scorer (behind Gretzky and Tomas Sandstrom) for the Kings in their run to the Stanley Cup finals that season.

Somewhat astonishingly, Robitaille was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins after the 1993-94 NHL season for Rick Tocchet and a draft choice. After a single season in Pittsburgh, he was traded to the New York Rangers, where he spent two seasons before being traded back to Los Angeles for Kevin Stevens.

His return to Los Angeles was not immediately triumphant. In an injury plagued 1997-98 season he had the lowest point total of his career to that time, but the next three years proved to be a renaissance in his career, as Robitaille returned to form as one of the great left wingers of hockey. However, wishing for a shot at the Stanley Cup, which playing for Los Angeles was unlikely to grant, he signed as a free agent in 2001 with the star-studded, veteran Detroit Red Wings. Robitaille scored thirty goals that year and was a key component to the Red Wings Cup win.

After a mediocre following season, the worst of his career, Robitaille, hoping to finish his career back in Los Angeles, signed as a free agent in the fall of 2003 with the Kings. He led the team in scoring the next season at the age of 38.

On the night of Thursday, January 19, 2006 during a game against the Atlanta Thrashers, Robitaille broke the Kings' all time franchise scoring record with his second goal of the night, his five-hundred and fifty-first (551st) goal in total. He went on to score a hat-trick third goal on an empty net in the final seconds of the 3rd period, embossing the new record, at least temporarily, at five-hundred and fifty two (552) goals. His record breaking goal was met with several minutes of a stadium-wide standing ovation and a video-congratulation reel was run on the in-house monitors for fans to watch.

On Monday, April 10, 2006, the Kings announced Robitaille's intention to retire at the conclusion of the 2005-06 NHL season. Robitaille officially confirmed this the next day, Tuesday, April 11, 2006 in a press conference held at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, California.

Luc Robitaille played his final NHL home game as a Los Angeles King against the Calgary Flames on Saturday, April 15, 2006. He also wore the Captain's 'C' that normally belongs to Mattias Norstrom. Although he was held without a point in the game, he logged 18:37 of ice time, and had 4 shots on goal. He was also the second shooter in the shootout, but his shot towards the upper-right corner of the net was stopped by the glove of Flames goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff, who was giving Robitaille the five hole for him to score. The Kings went on to steal this game 2-1 off of a shootout goal by Pavol Demitra, and three shootout saves by the Kings' Jason LaBarbera. The Kings held a curtain call for Robitaille after the game, where he was given a standing ovation by the sell-out crowd of 18,118 fans in attendance. After chants of his name died down, he gave a short speech and did one final lap of the rink at Staples Center.

Luc Robitaille finished his playing career on Monday, April 17, 2006 at the HP Pavilion in a game against the playoff-bound San Jose Sharks. The Kings won this game 4-0, with Jason LaBarbera earning the shutout. He received applause and chants of his name throughout the night by the 17,496 fans in attendance, as well as good wishes from many of the opposing players of the Sharks. After the game ended, the Kings players came out and gathered around him first, rather than the traditional congratulation of the goaltender. The players of the Sharks team then came onto the ice to shake hands with Robitaille before they headed off into their locker room.

Robitaille finished his legendary career with 668 goals, and 726 assists for a total of 1,394 points in 1,431 games played over the course of 19 NHL seasons (1986-87 to 2005-06). His final NHL goal and point was scored in typical Luc Robitaille fashion, one-timing a pass from Jeremy Roenick while at the center of the right wing faceoff circle past the Phoenix Coyotes' Curtis Joseph during a power play on the March 14, 2006 6-2 loss to the Coyotes.

On July 6, 2006 Robitaille was named president of the Omaha Lancers hockey team of the United States Hockey League (USHL).

The Kings officially retired Robitaille's number 20 sweater on January 20, 2007. Robitaille became the fifth player to have his number retired by the Kings, after Rogie Vachon, Marcel Dionne, Dave Taylor and Wayne Gretzky.

On May 25, 2007, Robitaille was named as the Kings' President, Business Operations.

Rod Gilbert


"Rodrigue Gabriel Gilbert (born July 1, 1941 in Montreal, Quebec) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey forward who played for the New York Rangers in the National Hockey League. He played right wing on the GAG (Goal A Game) line that also featured Vic Hadfield and Jean Ratelle. In 2004, he was inducted into the Nassau County Sports Hall of Fame.

During the 1959-60 OHA season, he slipped on some garbage strewn onto the ice and fell back into the boards. He broke the fifth verterbra in his back and doctors were worried they might have to amputate his legs when blood clots ensued. Gilbert started his career with the Rangers after finishing his junior career with the Guelph Royals during the 1960-61 season.
BTW, lol if your actually looking...
It did not take long for Gilbert to become popular with the Garden faithful, and he did not disappoint as he rose in prominence as an NHL star. However, it was not without pain. In 1965-66, his career was nearly derailed when he went through a second spinal fusion operation. This surgery was performed by Dr. Kazuo Yanagisawa. He lost half a season, but he bounced back with a strong season in 1966-1967. On February 24th, 1968, he established himself as a bona fide NHL star as he scored four goals in a game against the Montreal Canadiens. It was stardom from there. The Ratelle-Hadfield-Gilbert line, called the GAG(goal-a-game) line, would terrorize enemy goaltenders for years. He was with Team Canada when they took on the Soviets in the 1972 Summit Series. He won the Bill Masterton Trophy in 1976 for his perseverance regarding his back troubles.

At the beginning of the 1977-78 NHL season, Gilbert and Rangers' General Manager John Ferguson got into a contract dispute. When Gilbert finally returned to play, he was no longer the Gilbert of old. He retired after 19 games, having never led the Rangers to a Stanley Cup. His number 7 was retired by the Rangers on October 14th, 1979.

Phil Housley


"Phillip F. Housley (born March 9, 1964 in South St. Paul, Minnesota) is a former ice hockey player who played for the Buffalo Sabres, Winnipeg Jets, St. Louis Blues, Calgary Flames, New Jersey Devils, Washington Capitals, Chicago Blackhawks, and Toronto Maple Leafs. Housley currently coaches high school hockey for the Stillwater Ponies of Stillwater, Minnesota.

Housley is the top scoring U.S.-born player, with 1,232 points (338-894).

He is considered one of the best American defenceman ever, alongside fellow Americans Chris Chelios and Brian Leetch. However, Housley never won the Norris Trophy as the NHL's Top Defenceman, thanks in large part to playing in the same era and reaching his peak years at the same time as the likes of Ray Bourque, Paul Coffey, Chelios and Leetch (the four combined to win every Norris Trophy between 1985 and 1997), and that he spent considerable time during his career playing forward.

Housley never won the Stanley Cup, coming closest with the Capitals in 1998, where they were swept in the Stanley Cup Finals by the Detroit Red Wings. He played more NHL games without winning the Stanley Cup than any player in NHL history. Luke Richardson is the active NHL player who has played the most games without winning the coveted trophy: 1,339 at the end of the 2006-07 season.

On January 21, 2000, Housley played in his 1,257th NHL Game, the most ever at the time by an American, breaking the record held by Craig Ludwig. Housley went on to play in 1,495 NHL games. He held the record for games played by an American-born player for nearly seven years, until it was broken, on November 24, 2006, by Chris Chelios.

Housley was inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame in 2004. and is currently eligible for the Hockey Hall of Fame. On February 7, 2007, he was inducted into the Buffalo Sabres Hall of Fame, commemorated in a pre-game ceremony with former head coach Scotty Bowman on hand.

Terry Harper


"Terry Harper (born January 27, 1940 in Regina, Saskatchewan) was a Canadian ice hockey defenceman.

Terry played in the National Hockey League from 1961 to 1981. During this time, he played for the Los Angeles Kings, St. Louis Blues, Colorado Rockies, Detroit Red Wings, and Montreal Canadiens. While with Montreal, Terry had his greatest success. He would win five Stanley Cups while with the Habs in late 1960s and early 1970s."


Barclay Plager


"Barclay Plager (born March 26, 1941, Kirkland Lake, Ontario - died February 6, 1988), was a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman and coach for the St. Louis Blues.

The oldest of three hockey playing brothers, Plager played junior league hockey with the Peterborough Petes of the Ontario Hockey Association before spending six seasons in the minor leagues, cementing a reputation as a hard-nosed defensive defenceman. His reputation was established while still in juniors, when he had a notable fight with his own brother Bob, who was playing for the rival Guelph Royals . Plager spent the 1964 season with the Omaha Knights of the minor pro CHL, leading the league in assists and winning best defenceman accolades before moving on for three seasons with the Springfield Indians of the AHL.

With the 1967 NHL Expansion, many new jobs opened up in the National Hockey League, and Plager was acquired with Red Berenson by the St. Louis Blues from the New York Rangers, who held his rights. The deal proved extremely successful for the Blues, for Berenson became the first great offensive star of the newly-minted Western Division, while Plager anchored a stingy defense that allowed the fewest goals in the NHL in 1969, the second fewest in 1970 and the third fewest in 1971. Behind Plager's leadership -- he was named the second captain in team history in 1970 and served longer than any other Blues' captain save for Brian Sutter -- the Blues made the Stanley Cup finals their first three seasons. With brother Bob a fellow mainstay of the Blues' defence for eleven seasons and youngest brother Bill a teammate for four, it was widely seen as the "Plagers' team".

With his career winding down, Plager was named player-coach of the Blues' Kansas City CHL farm team in 1977, leading his club into the finals and being named the league's most valuable player. He retired as a player during the following season when he was named as head coach of the Blues, succeeding Leo Boivin. In his one full season as Blues' coach, 1979, however, the Blues had their worst season in franchise history, and he was relieved of duties the following season.

Suffering from dizzy spells thought to be the result of an old head injury, Plager was examined by a doctor following his stepping down as coach. He was diagnosed with a brain tumour.

On March 24th, 1981, prior to a game with the New York Islanders, Barclay Plager Night was held and his famous # 8 was retired.

In 1981, Plager was named assistant coach of the Blues, and save for another stint as interim head coach in the 1983 season, served as such until his death from cancer in 1988.

Career Achievements and Facts:

* Retired with 44 goals, 187 assists, 231 points and 1115 penalty minutes in 614 games, all with St. Louis
* Was the Blues' career leader in games played and penalty minutes at the time of his retirement.
* Played in NHL All-Star Game in 1970, 1971, 1973 and 1974.
* Led the NHL in penalty minutes in 1968 with 153 playing only 49 games.
* His #8 jersey has been retired by St. Louis.


Mike Peca


Michael Anthony Peca (born March 26, 1974 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward in the National Hockey League who has played for the Vancouver Canucks, Buffalo Sabres, New York Islanders, Edmonton Oilers, and Toronto Maple Leafs. He signed a one-year deal with the Columbus Blue Jackets for the 2007-08 season.

Peca began his junior career with the Sudbury Wolves of the OHL after they selected him in the first round of the 1990 player draft. He was traded to the Ottawa 67's where he blossomed into one of the leagues top offensive players. He was selected to represent Canada at the 1994 World Junior hockey tournament.

Peca was drafted in the 2nd round, 40th overall by the Vancouver Canucks in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft. Peca has twice won the Frank J. Selke Trophy for being the best defensive forward, in 1996-97 and 2001-02. He was a member of the gold medal-winning Canadian ice hockey team at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. He was acquired by the Edmonton Oilers in a trade with the New York Islanders in exchange for Mike York.

Peca was part of the cinderella Edmonton Oiler team that made a run to the Stanley Cup Finals. Peca had 6 goals and 5 assists in the 2006 Playoffs.

On July 18, 2006, the Toronto Maple Leafs announced that they had signed Peca as a free agent to a One-year $2.5 Million dollar contract for the 2006-07 NHL season.

During a game against the Blackhawks on December 22, 2006, Peca collided with Chicago defenseman Jim Vandermeer in the Toronto zone with 5:17 left in the first period. Vandermeer was assessed a minor penalty and a game misconduct for the hit. While Peca went down hard and it was determined that he sustained a fractured tibia at the base of his right knee and also suffered significant ligament damage. Peca missed the remainder of the 2006-07 season.

On August 21, 2007, Peca signed a one-year deal with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Ken Daneyko


"Ken Daneyko (born April 17, 1964 in Windsor, Ontario) is a retired ice hockey defenceman who played his entire career (1983 - 2003) with the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League.

Daneyko was drafted in the 1st round (18th overall) in the 1982 NHL Entry Draft, the first pick of the New Jersey Devils after the franchise relocated from Colorado. He spent several seasons in the minors before getting drafted, and played for the Yorkton Terriers of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, as well as the Great Falls Americans, Spokane Flyers and Seattle Breakers of the Western Hockey League. He then split time between the Devils and the Maine Mariners of the American Hockey League before being called up full-time for the 1985-86 NHL season.

Upon his arrival in the NHL, #3 established himself as a stay-at-home defenceman, and soon won fans over with his gritty and self-sacrificing play. Daneyko was also known for his missing front teeth, lost after he was hit in the mouth by a puck. His gap-toothed smile was well known not only by Devils supporters, but by hockey fans around the world. As a player who had spent all of his NHL career with New Jersey, Daneyko was nicknamed "Mr. Devil".

Daneyko racked up over 2,200 penalty minutes in his career, finishing a season with over 200 PIM five times. Daneyko was never known as a high-scoring defenceman, and set a record by playing in 255 consecutive regular-season games without scoring a goal. In fact, in his highest-scoring season, 1989-90, he scored only six goals and 15 assists en route to a 21-point season. Five seasons he scored no goals at all. However, Daneyko's effectiveness was not measured by how many pucks he put in the net, but by how many pucks he kept out. Daneyko was used primarily as a shadow defenceman, and often got physical in front of the net if a forward parked himself in the crease looking for a rebound.

Along with Scott Stevens, he was part of a tough Devils defensive corps that won three Stanley Cups in 1994-95, 1999-2000, and 2002-03. From the team's first playoff game while in New Jersey in 1988, Daneyko played in every playoff game until Game 4 of the 2003 Quarterfinals. He also was scratched in the first six games of the 2003 Finals, but looking for a spark Coach Pat Burns inserted Daneyko into the lineup for Game 7. As a reward to his devotion of the team, and a hint of his impending retirement, Daneyko took the ice for the final shift of the Devils' Game 7 victory over the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, which clinched their third Stanley Cup victory in 2003.

Currently, Daneyko provides commentary and analysis alongside Steve Cangialosi between periods of Devils' broadcasts on FSN New York.

The Devils retired his uniform number (#3) on March 24, 2006."


Graham Drinkwater


"Graham Drinkwater was a pioneer in the game of hockey. He was a rare player in that he had the ability to play both forward and defense with equal skill. Unfortunately for Drinkwater, he was one of the many early stars usually overlooked by generations of fans and historians.

Graham Drinkwater was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec. Drinkwater was an accomplished hockey and football player in his teens, he starred with the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association junior team in 1892-93. The MAAA went on to win the first stanley cup in that same season. Drinkwater left McGill in 1895 to sign with the Victoria Hockey Club of Montreal, where he figured he would get more playing time. He scored nine goals in eight contests, helping Victoria win the Stanley Cup. Drinkwater would also win the cup in 1896, 1897 and 1899. Drinkwater's excellent skating and smarts made him one of the best players early in the game of hockey. He was inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1950."

Duane Sutter


"Duane Calvin Sutter (born March 16, 1960 in Viking, Alberta) is a Canadian former forward player and former head coach in the National Hockey League. He is one of the famed six Sutter brothers to play in the NHL.

Duane was drafted by the New York Islanders in 1979 in the 1st round and as the 17th pick overall. During the following season he made his debut for the Islanders, and as a rookie was a key contributor to the Islanders first Stanley Cup championship. Duane Sutter, who was dubbed "Dog" by his teammates because he yapped and barked before and during games, also contributed to the ensuing 1981, 1982 and 1983 Stanley Cup championships. Playing in the corners of the rink, Duane Sutter was tough but skillful. Sutter had an underrated passing ability and scoring touch. After the 1983 Cup win Duane had the distinction of playing four seasons in the NHL and winning four Stanley Cup championships.

In the 1980-81 season he was joined by his younger brother, Brent, on the team and they played together until Duane was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks in 1987.

He played for the Blackhawks for three seasons, but after the 1989-1990 season he retired."

Eddie has shown the economy of movement that even a cobra would envy. The Eagle has had great career numbers he has always used his ability and competitive nature to get the job done. Fundamently sound Belfour was an agreesive goalkeep who used his entire body to stop the puck.He stays deep in the net relying on his uncanny reflexes to get the job done.His unconventional style serves him well. Is acrobatic and extremely difficult to beat down low. While he doesn't always see a lot of rubber, he remains focused and ready when called upon to make a key save.

Mike Bossy was magic on ice. Bossy game was one of suddeness and speed. He was a wonderous apparation: time and time again Mike would seem to materilize unchecked, in perfect scoring position with the puck dangerously positioned on his stick. He would use sleight of hand when he would shoot the puck. He doesn't even look like he touches it. Poof: red light. Just perfecto magic on ice! Bossy usedhuman nature to suceeed on the ice,. He used other players beleifs that he was tied up, that the penalty was almost over and that the epriod would eventually would play out. Alot ofplayers look at the clock and say it is too late to score. With mike it was never too late!He was a devestating marksman.He scored 2 cup winning goals.He is the only player to do in back to back seasons.

#14 LW Geoff Courtnall
Geoff was a favorite wherever he played. He had a high speed, hard hitting style of play which gave him many opportunities within the game. He played with energetic hustle, loved to use an aggressive fore-check and this created offensive opportunities which lent him to a tendency to score key goals . At one time he had a reputation as a streaky scorer but eventually Geoff would become recognized as one of the league's upper echelon left wingers.

Geoff was an exciting hockey player, combining great speed and enthusiastic physical play made him a contageous hungry go go player. If his team was down he had the fiesty fire to pick it up. He has many assests beyond his top notch speed. Courtnall could score on a opponent using his backhand slapshot and wristshot and he loved to drive to the net muscling out defenceman to get rebounds. He was creative to the extreme and was great on the give n gonon the power play. Geoff was an excellant penalty killer and a legitmate short handed threat.

#16 Leo Labine
Labine was a tough and feisty hockey player who could not only score, but also get under the skin of the superstars by checking them into the ice. An early pioneer of "trash talk," he used every trick, foul or tool available to terrorize and needle his opponents. He had an above-average scoring touch and a ferocious sense of team spirit that was not unlike his spiritual cousin, "Terrible" Ted Lindsay.To give you a clearer picture of the game Leo LaBine played, perhaps my good friend John Larrabee's memory of the first time he saw Terry O'Reilly play can say more than I can. John remembers saying the first time he saw Terry play, that there was the next Leo LaBine.

#2 Al MacInnis -
Shot-blocking defencemen fear him. Goalies cringe when they see him hop over the boards. It comes down to two words, "the shot." Al MacInnis is acknowledged as possessing the hardest slapshot in the NHL, and although at one time he used it at every opportunity, MacInnis employed the fear of his shot to set up plays, take an extra step, or unleash the blast of another drive.

Al perfected his shot in small town Port Hood on the island of Cape Breton. He would spend hrs each day taking shots at his parents barn .Perfecting the best tool of his trade. His shot would let Al advance through the hockey leagues till he got to the nhl. Once there he worked on his game and became a legend.

#26 Mike Milbury D

Mike Milbury was a rugged defenceman played over 750 games for the Boston Bruins in the 1970s and '80s. His defensive zone coverage was exemplary and he used an assortment of tactics to thwart opposition forwards.

Beginning in 1976-77, the tenacious defender was a regular on the Boston blueline for eleven years. He helped the club reach the Stanley Cup final in 1977 and 1978 and continually finish with one of the best goals against records in the NHL. During the club's rebuilding phase in the '80s, Milbury's leadership on and off the ice was a factor in keeping the club competitive despite the large number of new faces in the line up

#18 RW Jim Pappin
Jim Pappin played two successful seasons of junior hockey with the Toronto Marlboros from 1958 to 1960, before leaping into the minor pros for three years of seasoning. As property of the Leafs, he arrived in time to have Punch Imlach as his boss. Pappin credits Imlach for pushing him to become a better two-way player. But otherwise, the two found little common ground, especially regarding matters of money.

As such, Pappin played well enough to make the club each year from 1963-68. But during those years, Imlach took advantage of any opportunity to demote his right winger to the minors.

Pappin led the NHL in playoff goals and points in 1967, as a member of the Stanley Cup-winning Toronto Maple Leafs. Jim scored the leafs last stanley cup winning goal back in 1967 he was a very useful players especially during the playoffs. He was a hard working 2 way forward who could score goals. He was a player who had alot of natural talent - good speed, fine shot and combative attitude - Jim scored eight 20 + goal seasons tallying 278 goals 573 points in 767 regular season games. 92 playoff games 33 goals and 67 points.

During his 14-year NHL career Jim developed into a fine two-way hockey player who was very sharp in front of the net. He was hard to move from the slot and he scored a lot of goals on rebounds and tip-ins.

#35 Mike Richter
Mike Richter was very consistent goalie who was a tremendously-fit athlete. Mike had good lateral movement, and played the angles very well by being very agressive coming out of the net to trim angles. Excellent footwork, lightning quick, and very acrobatic.His concentration was second to none, and his one on one ability, especially on clear cut breakaways, were other worldly. There may have been no goalie in history who was better on breakaways

"There aren't too many you'd rather have in goal with the Cup on the line." (ESPN Hockey 96, p. 67)

"The Rangers' most obvious strength is in goal, where they have reliable Richter, who has turned into superman at crucial times in his career - the 1994 playoffs, the World Cup, the 1997 playoffs." (The Hockey News 1997-98 Yearbook, p. 139)

A lifelong Ranger who will always be remembered as the goalie who stoned Canada during the 1996 World Cup. Richter can be as hot as any other netminder alive

Mike Richter - This saving grace may be the single most important player in USA Hockey history. He was the brick wall Team USA leaned on time and time again.

Power Forward/Team Leader

#21 Borge Salming

Salming combined remarkable puck handling skills with superior defensive play and became one of Toronto's most respected and popular players. Borje's superb puckhandling ignited the Leafs' offense.

Salming is remembered for his slalom rushes across the rink and his powerful wrist shots in the style of Bobby Orr, as well as for his tricky but accurate passes so typical of the European game.

Al Arbour called him a great athlete with an ability to perform excellently on both defense and offense. Yet, for a hockey player capable of gaining points on the offensive, his eagerness to be a human shield and stop a slapshot was quite incredible. And he did it without much hesitation. All those same qualities that made Salming a great player.

Another of Salming's strengths was his phenomenal stamina. Even at 38, while Salming was playing out his last season in Toronto, he would spend 30 to 40 minutes on the ice per game.

On January 4, 1988 he became the first European player to appear in 1,000 NHL games.

Salming was one of the NHL's premier blueliners. "Borje was a once-in-a-lifetime find," said McNamara in a late-seventies' interview . "Here is a player you can mention in the same sentence with Bobby Orr, Brad Park and Larry Robinson when you're talking about the great defensemen of the modern era."

Maple Leafs owner Harold Ballard once claimed that he "…wouldn't trade Borje for God.

"He was their (the Leafs) best defenseman. He's a 38-year-old with a 28-year-old's legs," said Detroit's coach Jacques Demers

In the history of the Toronto Maple Leafs, only two players appeared in more games than Salming - George Armstrong and Tim Horton. The King appeared in 1,099 games.

#27 Darryl Sittler-
Darryl was a unique choppy skating style which seemed to make him quick around the net and gave him that extra burst of speed when he needed it. Darryls game was composed of a masterful combination between skill and toughness. He was strong on the puck and had a deceptivley hard shot and was a forrunner of a power forward style of play, strong, good dish, Darryl was a hard-nosed player, completely accountable he played in all the tough area's of the ice and was willing to drop 'em. fought only a few times a year but was rarely on the losing end. He had superior instincts and was capable of unpredictable spurts of offensive greatness.tough, skilled, fast, good puck distributor. A very good player simular to Joe Sakic His style has been enherited though adapated by Gilmour Yzerman Crosby Sakic and Ingina

The game was more nasty back in the 70's an era of bradway bullies set the tone. Darryl was able to dodge sticks elbows and bone crushing hits on the ice and use his brains and wits to out last the bandits who ran MLG off the ice.
Darryl's hero was Jean Belliveau and that is who he tried to model his game after. He had a physical element. He was a terrific leader.. He seemed to have that sense that the greats did to get to the right places at the right time.Darryl was the Quintiessential leaf.

#20 Gary Suter
Gary was rough 6'0" 205 A capable powerplay quarter back who relishes his job as the set up man to MacInnis Chelios or Iafrate. An offensive minded defender who can play the role as the fourth attacker.He was an excellant skater who was agile and strong.He had a low powerful shot. He plays a tough no nonesense defensive game. He can move the puck out of his zone with a pinpoint passes and has great wheel to skate the puck up the ice when needed..
"When Suter first broke into the NHL with the Flames in 1985/86, he was your prototypical offensive defenseman. That year, he had 18 goals and 50 assists, and won NHL Rookie of the Year honors. Two years later, Suter put together a 91-point season (21 goals, 70 assists). Suter possesses a blistering shot from the point that is deadly accurate"

In all, "Jeems" supplied toughness and leadership on the Toronto defense for eleven seasons. He was regarded as one of the league's toughest foes.

#7 Keith Tkachuk
The T in kieths last name Tkachuk's name is silent. That's about the only thing in that guy's life that doesnt make a noise. For over ten yrs he has been one of the nhl's premier power forwards in the mold of his boyhood hero Cam Neely.

What makes him so unique is his combination of talent and toughness. He was just the second player in nhl history to score 50 goals and record more then 200 minutes in penalties.
The Hockey News Top 50.

Is a classic power forward who is hard driving prescence with a hard skating stride.Kieth has a huge frame, great shot and plays with an ill-tempered disposition. When on his game, he's a virtually unstoppable offensive force from in close and an intimidating presence.

22 Rick Vaive
a power forward who corralled plenty of points and penalty minutes. Vaive used his booming slapshot to become the first Leaf in franchise history to score 50 goals in one season. He got 54 in 1981-82 followed by seasons of 51 and then 52.
Rick Vaive may have been one of the most under-rated players to play in NHL. For ten consecutive seasons he scored more than 30 goals per season. He scored more than 50 goals three consecutive seasons and was the first Maple Leaf to reach and pass the 50 goal barrier. He was a Toronto Maple Leaf Captain, an honored bestowed on very few. To be a Toronto Maple Leaf Captain you hold the most prestigious captaincy in the NHL
"Vaive is an excellent skater, strong in stride and balanced, attributes that serve his physical style of play well....excellent anticipation and instincts around the net....good wrist shot and excellent slap shot, a threat to score from anywhere in the offensive zone....excellent along the boards or in the corners, muscling the opposition off the puck...very difficult to control in front of the net because of his strength....an emotional player who takes pride in his achievements....leads by example during games."

Scouting reports & career highlights

#77 D Ray Bourque:
A tireless worker on the ice and in the gym. One of the most well-conditioned athletes to ever play the game, it enabled him to dominate the game despite consistently playing over 30 minutes per night. A five-time Norris Trophy winner, a 13-time first-team all-star and the all-time leader in points scored among defencemen. Carried the Boston Bruins to Stanley Cup final births in 1988 and 1990. Bourque came within two votes of winning the Hart Trophy in 1990. A gifted puckmover and power play quarterback, he also possessed one of the game's most lethal shots. Bourque was also widely considered the best defensive defenceman in the sport in the late 80s and early 90s. He was the emotional catalyst for the Colorado Avalanche's Stanley Cup victory in 2001, and was a first-team all-star that season.

#1 Johnny Bower:
One of the great stories in hockey history, Johnny Bower starred with the Cleveland Barons and other minor pro teams before latching on with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1958. He became the No. 1 goalie at age 34 and spent the next 12 seasons in Toronto. When Bower retired in 1970, he was the oldest goalie ever in the NHL. Bower backstopped the Toronto Maple Leafs to four Stanley Cup titles in the 60s. An aggressive goalie, he used the poke check to stymie opponents. Bower fought for Canada in the Second World War before starting his hockey career.

C #7 Max Bentley:
A small but aggressive centre with speed, guts and terrific hands. He might be the best stick-handler to ever play the game. Max enjoyed his greatest individual success with the Chicago Black Hawks, winning the Art Ross Trophy in 1946 and 1947. He also won the Hart Trophy in 1946. Early in the 1947-48 season, he was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs, where he won three Cups in four years. Max had 31 points in 29 playoff games in those three seasons. Max also took two years out of his career to serve with the Canadian Armed Forces during the Second World War.

RW #8 Cam Neely:
While he wasn't the first power forward, he set the template by which all future power forwards will be judged. An awesome combination of physical strength, strength on his skates, goal scoring ability, physical play and aggressiveness that is almost unmatched in this draft. He has great chemistry with Bourque from their Boston days, and he should prove to be the perfect linemate for Max Bentley. He reached 50 goals in a near-record 44 games in 1993-94. He never won a Cup, but he was fourth in career post-season goals per game. A defining player for his generation.

LW #17 Doug Bentley:
The other half of the Bentley duo brings terrific speed, goal scoring ability and playmaking ability to our organization. The 1943 Art Ross winner was a four-time all-star and a six-time 20-goal scorer, at a time when 20 goals actually meant something. Doug's arrival should give us one of the best first lines in the league, thanks to his skill and his chemistry with his brother Max. Unquestionably one of the top 10 left wingers of all-time. A smart player and an effortless skater who was also an accomplished penalty killer. Put up excellent numbers even though he was often saddled with mediocre teammates on a poor Chicago team. A key member of the second Milt Dunnell Cup champions.

D #26 Allan Stanley:
A prototypical "Steady Eddie" defenceman. At 6'2", he has very good size. He's very smart, poised and positionally sound in his own zone. Allan is also a very smart passer out of his own zone, and capable of working the point on the power play. These traits make him a capable No. 2 defenceman who can play 23-25 minutes per game. A four-time Cup champion and a three-time all-star, he has experience playing in front of Johnny Bower.

#9 LW Esa Tikkanen:
One of the top defensive wingers of all-time, and a very good offensive player with a heavy shot, Tik saved his best hockey for the playoffs. He was arguably Edmonton's best forward in the 1990 playoffs, effectively shadowing Hawerchuk and Gretzky, while averaging over a point-per-game. He's good enough offensively to play on a scoring line, but is at his best on a checking line. He was the best defensive winger in the game for several seasons. He was also abrasive, and capable of getting under an opponents skin. One of the top multi-purpose weapons remaining.

RW #10 George "The Chief" Armstrong:
An exceptional all-round forward and one of the greatest leaders of all-time. There is no greater distinguishment in the Halifax organization than to be named the team captain, and The Chief was a no-brainer selection. But he's more than just outstanding leadership. Armstrong was a very good all-round forward. He used his hockey sense and positional play to his advantage in the defensive zone, and he was a dominant player along the boards and in the corners. He had good, but not great, offensive ability. While he never managed a point-per-game, he topped 50 points a couple of times. He did hover around the point-per-game mark for the Leafs Cup triumphs in 62, 63 and 64.

D #6 Gus Mortson:
Arguably the best defenceman available when he was selected. His nickname of "Old Hardrock" was very apt: not only was he one of the toughest players in the league throughout his career, but he is from a mining background. Led the league in PIM's four times. Excellent defensively and very capable at advancing or rushing the puck. Capable of playing on the power play. A strong leader. Won four Cups in five years with the Leafs. First team all-star in 1950. The ideal No. 3 defenceman who can log No. 2 minutes.

D #5 Ted Green:
A double-tough, rugged defensive defenceman with an excellent work ethic and good on-ice smarts. An ideal No. 4 defenceman capable of gobbling up No. 3 minutes when needed. Very adept at clearing the front of the net, enabling Johnny Bower to see the shots that are headed his way. His leadership and smarts translated well to a career behind the bench with the Edmonton Oilers. One of the first prominent NHL players to join the WHA. Demonstrated his resiliency rebounding from a crippling, life-threatening head injury to return to the NHL a year later, and demonstrated his character by not holding a grudge against the purpetrator, Wayne Maki.

#11 C Buddy O'Connor:
Buddy O'Connor is an ideal centre to anchor our second line. A small but skilled, slick playmaker, he will make the players around him better. Buddy won two Stanley Cups with the Montreal Canadiens in the mid 1940s, but his best individual success came with the New York Rangers. In 1948, he became the first player to win the Hart Trophy and the Lady Byng Trophy in the same year, and he was named Canada's Male Athlete of the Year. He missed the scoring title by one point. He was also a star in senior hockey, reaching the Allan Cup five times before cracking the NHL.

#18 RW Dave Taylor:
The top remaining RW on our list, Taylor will be a Mr. Everything for our second line. He'll score. He'll set up plays. He'll hit. He'll work in the corners. He'll backcheck. This makes him the perfect linemate for Buddy O'Connor. Toiled in obscurity most of his career in LA. Offensive skill is evident with more than 1,000 points, and he did it while being the defensive conscience for the Triple Crown line. Terrific character and determination, he won both the King Clancy and the Bill Masterton trophies in 1991.

Coach Tommy Ivan:
One of the top bench bosses in NHL history, Ivan won three Stanley Cup championships in five years with the Detroit Red Wings, and reach the Cup final on two other occasions. His Detroit teams were always among the best in the league both offensively and defensively. Ivan also won a Stanley Cup as the GM of the Chicago Black Hawks in 1961, and was the coach of the inaugural Milt Dunnell Cup champions. And he served his country during the Second World War.

#55 Keith Primeau:
A potentially devastating combination of size, strength, skill and skating ability. There are few talented big centres left on the board. And it's unlikely that any of them have Primeau's skating ability. Very good speed for a big man. He underwent a tremendous change late in his career, from a big power centre to a big power centre who could dominate defensively. Was the leading candidate for the Selke in 2003-04 until concussion problems set in. Our last legit memory of him is a good one: he dominated the 2004 playoffs, carrying the Flyers on his back in all facets of the game.

#12 Dennis Hull:
Bobby's little brother was a strong offensive player. A second-team all-star in 1973 and a four-time 30-goal scorer. Exceptionally strong with a powerful shot. Played with Team Canada in the 1972 Canada Cup. Had some good playoffs with the Chicago Blackhawks in the late 60s and early 70s, he would have won the Conn Smythe if the Hawks had won the Cup in 1973. Likely hockey's greatest living storyteller and one of the game's all-time great characters, he will be our MD (media darling) and a key person in our locker room.

#23 C Doug Risebrough:
A grinding, gritty, two-way centre with a knack for getting under the opponent's skin, Risebrough is the ideal player to centre our fourth line. He played that role very effectively for the Montreal Canadiens in the late 1970s, on the Kid Line with Yvon Lambert and Mario Tremblay. Risebrough will be counted on to bring that chippy, chirpy style to Halifax, but he is talented enough to score the occasional goal.

#2 D Wally Stanowski:
Likely brings more to the table than any remaining defenceman. Good size at six feet tall, but an excellent skater, a creative passer and a devestating bodychecker. All three were needs with our hockey club. A first team all-star in 1941. His off-ice record is outstanding, too. He was a good influence in the locker room, he was part of four Stanley Cup championships in Toronto, and he served his country in the Second World War. Will make an impact on and off the ice.

#31 G Hugh Lehman:
Like Hap Holmes, a star in the western professional leagues which, until the mid 20s, were the best leagues in the world. In 13 seasons, he led the league in GAA five times and was a 10-time all-star. Reached the Stanley Cup final eight times and backstopped Vancouver to their last Stanley Cup championship in 1915. He led the NHL in minutes played and played in every game for the Chicago Blackhawks in 1926-27 in his first NHL season at age 41. One of the best back-up goalies in the draft.

#34 D Jamie Macoun:
A rock-solid defensive defenceman who will admirably fill the role of our No. 6. He's positionally sound, physical and very aware defensively. He also has a strong work ethic, and will stop at nothing to stop his opponent. (Just ask Pat LaFontaine). Jamie won two Stanley Cups (Calgary in 1989 and Detroit in 1998) and was the best defenceman at the 1991 World Championships. He'll also be very valuable on the penalty kill.

#19 RW Bobby Schmautz:
An ideal fourth line winger in our organization. He brings everything we want: speed, skill, toughness, defensive ability and hockey sense. He played a tough, rugged game throughout his career. His aggressiveness, speed and defensive ability made him an excellent defensive forward. And he had a very good scorer's touch, averaging nearly a point-per-game in both the regular season and the playoffs during his six-year peak.

#15 LW Kirk Maltby:
A solid addition to our Momentum Line. He brings the size, speed, defensive awareness, physical play, grit and work ethic that you want from an all-time draft fourth liner. He was an integral part of checking lines in both the NHL and on the international stage. Three Cup rings, a World Championship gold medal and a World Cup championship. Only thing he lacks is an offensive touch. He's the type of player that successful teams need.

#16 Craig Simpson:
A talented offensive winger with good size and grit, a nose for the net and a knack for coming up with the big goals. A two-time Stanley Cup champion with the Edmonton Oilers, he led the post-season in scoring in 1990. Willing to take a pounding in front of the net on the power play. Also not afraid to play a physical game. Scored a career-high 56 goals in 1987-88. A wonky back robbed him of the prime years of his career, and prevented him from being a consistent 40-goal threat.

#3 D Bob Dailey:
Not many defencemen like him in the draft. A towering, six-foot-five defenceman who can move the puck, skate very well and deliver hard hits. He was very productive in the playoffs, averaging nearly a point-per-game for the Flyers in their run to the 1980 Cup final. An ankle injury ended his career at the relatively young age of 29.

#22 D Normand Rochefort:
A big, rock-solid defensive defenceman to round out our roster. He works hard, plays smart and efficient, blocks shots and effectively takes care of his own zone. A typical steady-Eddie defenceman who is a perfect depth defenceman in this draft. His rock solid defensive play earned him a spot with the NHL all-stars at Rendez-Vous 87 and Team Canada at the 1987 Canada Cup.

No hype. This is the team as conceived, built around a unique coach:

g.m.: VanIslander

coach: Fred Shero

Offense: "Get the puck in deep and keep it there. Go to the net. Own the crease."
Defense: "Punish the puck carrier, force the play, control the middle, clear rebounds."

captain: Scott Stevens
alternate: Doug Gilmour
alternate: Rod Brind'amour

J. P. "Jeep" Parise - Eric Lindros - Dino Ciccarelli
The Razor Line: aggressive forechecking corner man; dominant hitting centre; crease crashing trigger man
Dave Andreychuk - Doug Gilmour (A) - Vladimir Martinec
The Two-Way Line: size at the net; speedy gritty skill up the middle; lightning quick puckhandler
John Ogrodnick - Rod Brind'Amour (A) - John "Pie" McKenzie
The Hard Line: consistent hard shooter; traffic-savvy face-off warrior; clutch-scoring shadowing pest
Steve "Sarge" Vickers - Don Luce - Mike Foligno
The Heart Attack Line: grindin' shootin' rebounder; elite face-off PK SHG scorer; strong nasty hustlin' heavy shot
extra forwards: Ivan Hlinka - Ziggy Palffy

Alternative 3rd/4th line formations for occasional use:
Shutdown Line: Rod Brind'amour - Don Luce - John McKenzie

Guy Lapointe - Scott Stevens (C)
Bill Gadsby - Charlie Huddy
Alexander Gusev - Joe Watson
Marty McSorley

Dominik Hasek

When Shero started to coach the Flyers' he immediately implemented a system. "Other teams have each line playing a different system depending on if they are a scoring or checking line. On the Flyers every line and player plays the same system, whether the player is a superstar or on the fourth line"

forecheckers on each line: Parise, Gilmour, McKenzie, Luce
crease crashers on each line: Ciccarelli, Andreychuk, Brind'amour, Vickers
shooters on each line: Lindros, Martinec, Ogrodnick, Foligno

"There are 4 corners to a rink and a pit in front of the net. You have to hold your ground. There isn't a man on the team who is afraid to go into a corner and hit someone"

backcheckers among forwards: Parise, Gilmour, Foligno, Andreychuk, Brind'amour, McKenzie, Luce, Vickers
coach Shero nasty forwards: Lindros (big hits, bull in traffic), Parise (swinging stick at ref), Dino (superpest), Foligno (2000+ PIM), McKenzie (cheapshot needler)
guys Shero will yell at: Ciccarelli ("Backcheck Dino!"), Ogrodnick ("Don't just hit the openings, go into traffic Johnny O"). Martinec ("You better score again tonight, or I'll put in Palffy and at least get some bumpin' goin'")

open-ice hitters: Lindros, Stevens, Gadsby, Gusev, Huddy, McSorley

powerplay unit 1: Ogrodnick-Lindros-Ciccarelli-Lapointe-Gadsby
powerplay unit 2: Andreychuk-Gilmour-Palffy-Stevens-Huddy

penalty kill unit 1: Luce-Gilmour-Stevens-Gadsby
penalty kill unit 2: Brind'amour-Parise-Lapointe-Watson

1st round: DOMINIK HASEK

The most dominant eight (8) year period in goaltending history (1994-2001):
6 Vezina trophies, 2 Hart trophies, 5-time Hart trophy finalist, Olympic Gold

2nd round: SCOTT STEVENS

1026 NHL points, 3187 PIM, Conn Smythe (2000), Plus-minus Award (1994)
Captain (Blues '91-'92; Devils '94-'05); +/- of +427 career
NHL 1st team All-star (1988, 1994); 2nd team All-star (1997, 2001)

Captain (Blackhawks '52-'54)

4th round: GUY LAPOINTE

Being a solid two-way player was something he worked hard on

Simply the hardest hitting offensive talent (for his first 8 seasons)

scored two fastest shorthanded goals in NHL history (four seconds)
Captain (Leafs 1994-1997; Blackhawks 1999-2000)

7th round: ROD BRIND'AMOUR

Conn Smythe worthy (2006); Selke winner (2006, 2007)
skilled winger at tip ins around the crease; great centre on face-offs
Captain (Hurricanes 2005-currently)


608 NHL goals, another 73 NHL playoff goals
tenacious, relentless around the crease; a pest great at drawing penalties

Flin Flon Bombers

Team Name: Flin Flon Bombers
Arena: Whitney Forum
Location: Flin Flon, MB, Canada
Founded: 1927
Conference: Red Fisher
Division: Don Cherry
General Manager: John Flyers Fan
Assistant General Manager: Roger's Pancreas
Coach: Pete Green
Captain: Bobby Clarke
Alternate Captain: Dale Hunter
Alternate Captain: Viacheslav Fetisov

Bobby "Whitey" Clarke
Number: 16
Position: Center Shoots: Left
Height: 5.10 Weight: 185
Born: Flin Flon, Manitoba, Canada
ATD Draft: Selected by Flin Flon #25 overall
Hockey Draft Central; Legends of Hockey
A fiery, scrappy redhead, Clarke won the Hart Trophy as the league's most valuable player three times, in 1973, 1975, and 1976. In addition to his regular shifts, Clarke killed penalties and was a regular on the Flyers' power-play teams. He was also one of the NHL's best faceoff men.
Vyacheslav "Slava" Fetisov
Number: 2
Position: Defense Shoots: Left
Height: 6.01 Weight: 220
Born: Moscow, USSR
ATD Draft: Selected by Flin Flon #32 overall
Hockey Draft Central; Legends of Hockey
“That guy was like the Rock of Gibraltar back there," he said. "He was also good offensively, but defensively he was like a mountain back there in his own end. He was a tough opponent who was difficult to play against. He was the cornerstone of that Red Army team.
Grant "Coco" Fuhr
Number: 31
Position: Goaltender Catches: Right
Height: 5.09 Weight: 188
Born: Spruce Grove, Alberta, Canada
ATD Draft: Selected by Flin Flon #81 overall
Hockey Draft Central; Legends of Hockey
Fuhr has been one of those clutch goaltenders who are at their best in the playoffs. After a 3.91 goals-against average in 1983-84, he gave up just 2.99 goals a game in the playoffs, compiling an 11-4 record. In the 1988 playoffs, he established records for most games by a goalie, 19, and most victories, 16.
Sergei Makarov
Number: 24
Position: Right Wing Shoots: Left
Height: 5.08 Weight: 185
Born: Cheliabinsk, USSR
ATD Draft: Selected by Flin Flon #88 overall
Hockey Draft Central; Legends of Hockey
Makarov is a smaller player who uses his size to his advantage. He has a tremendously low center of gravity and superb balance, which makes him difficult to knock off of his feet. Also, he keeps a very wide base when making lateral (side-to-side) moves, which keeps defensemen guessing as to which direction he will be going.
Igor "the Professor" Larionov
Number: 11
Position: Center Shoots: Left
Height: 5.09 Weight: 170
Born: Voskresensk, USSR
ATD Draft: Selected by Gwinnett #135 overall
Legends of Hockey
Igor Larionov was, very subtly, one of the most highly skilled hockey players we have ever seen. In some ways his best days were left behind in the old Soviet Union, but he still has excelled at the NHL level more so than any other of the veteran former Red Army teammates.
Alexei Kasatonov
Number: 7
Position: Defense Shoots: Left
Height: 6.01 Weight: 215
Born: Leningrad, USSR
ATD Draft: Selected by Flin Flon #137 overall
Hockey Draft Central

Vladimir "the Tank" Krutov
Number: 17
Position: Left Wing Shoots: Left
Height: 5.09 Weight: 190
Born: Moscow, USSR
ATD Draft: Selected by Flin Flon #193 overall

Eric "Rico" Desjardins
Number: 37
Position: Defense Shoots: Right
Height: 6.01 Weight: 205
Born: Rouyn, Quebec, Canada
ATD Draft: Selected by Flin Flon #200 overall
Legends of Hockey

Herb Gardiner
Number: 6
Position: Defense Shoots: Left
Height: 6.00 Weight: 205
Born: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

Mark "Rex" Recchi
Number: 8
Position: Right Wing Shoots: Left
Height: 5.10 Weight: 185
Born: Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada
ATD Draft: Selected by Flin Flon #256 overall
Legends of Hockey

Dale Hunter
Number: 32
Position: Center Shoots: Left
Height: 5.10 Weight: 200
Born: Petrolia, Ontario, Canada
ATD Draft: Selected by Flin Flon #305 overall
Legends of Hockey; Hockey Draft Central
While he was a superior defensive player, face-off specialist and offensive sparkplug, it was Hunter's mean-spirited, sometimes dirty play that summed up Hunter best. He was the ultimate team player and leader; a player who played with every last ounce of heart and soul he had.
John LeClair
Number: 10
Position: Left Wing Shoots: Left
Height: 6.03 Weight: 233
Born: St. Albans, Vermont, United States
ATD Draft: Selected by Flin Flon #312 overall
Legends of Hockey
John LeClair is an immovable object in front of the net. He can score from there, he can screen the goaltender from there, he can move the puck from there if he has to, and most importantly, he can occupy a ton of attention and more than a few bodies while he's there.
Martin St. Louis
Number: 26
Position: Right Wing Shoots: Left
Height: 5.09 Weight: 185
Born: Laval, Quebec, Canada
ATD Draft: Selected by Flin Flon #359 overall
Legends of Hockey; TSN
"What I saw in him was the capability in the corners to get away from defenders who were 6-foot-3 and 225 (pounds) where other small players didn't have that ability. Martin had powerful legs; he was slippery and determined."
Vincent LeCavalier
Number: 4
Position: Center Shoots: Left
Height: 6.04 Weight: 223
Born: Ile Bizard, Quebec, Canada
ATD Draft: Selected by Flin Flon #368 overall
Legends of Hockey; TSN
J’en parle beaucoup depuis le début de cette série, mais pour commencer une rencontre, je trouve qu’il est trčs important de frapper l’adversaire, particuličrement les défenseurs. C’est ce que j’ai fait en premičre avec trois mises en échec.

Coach: Anatoly Tarasov/Arkady Chernyshev

Captain: Boris Mikhailov
Alternate: Danny Gare
Alternate: Red Kelly

Anatoli Firsov - Sergei Fedorov - Boris Mikhailov
Johnny Gottselig - Tumba Johansson - Daniel Alfredsson
Dirk Grahame - Samuel Pahlsson - Danny Gare
Pete Mahovlich - Jozef Golonka - Willi Plett

Red Kelly - Brad Park
Sylvio Mantha - Teppo Numminen
Vitaly Davydov - Yuri Liapkin

Milan Novy
Alexander Almetov

Gump Worsley
Eddie Giacomin

PP1: Anatoli Firsov - Sergei Fedorov - Boris Mikhailov
Red Kelly - Brad Park

PP2: Johnny Gottselig - Tumba Johansson - Danny Gare
Sylvio Mantha - Yuri Liapkin

PK1: Johnny Gottselig- Samuel Pahlsson
Red Kelly - Teppo Numminen

PK2: Dirk Grahame - Sergei Fedorov
Sylvio Mantha - Brad Park

In case of an injury I put Golonka in first, then Novy. If a defenseman gets injured I just play with 5. Either Park or Kelly have to play double shift whcih they are quite capable of. Plett and Almetov chance according to the team´s need. If a goon is needed, Plett takes the place, if you can just get by with "normal" play, Almetov centers the fourth and Golonka moves to the wing. For more offence, I can put Almetov, instead of Pahlsson (although I have to say that Pahlsson can play offence too, he just doesn't in Anahein, no doubt that Almetov is better on that respect though) on the 3rd and transform my checking line into an able 3rd scoring line.

RW Guy Lafleur

A Five-time Stanley Cup champion in the 70s. Inducted into the HHOF in 1988. A six-time first team all-star RW with three Lester B. Pearson awards, three-time Art Ross winnter and twice a Hart Trophy winner. Scored 110 points in 72 playoff games over a 6 season stretch. Averaged over 125 points per regular season during his peak. Ranked eleventh on the THN Top 100 list


Lafleur joined the Montreal Canadiens the very fall he was drafted and became the first player in NHL history to score at least 50 goals and 100 points in six consecutive seasons. When asked about developing his talent from a young age up to that of a consistent 50-goal scorer, Lafleur said: "I think it was always there and it was maybe a matter of bringing it out. It was harder than I thought it would be and I had to try harder. I had to regain my confidence, maybe the most important thing. I have learned a lot to relax. I know what I can do now, and I do it."

Lafleur was a First Team all-star in all six of those consecutive 50-goal seasons and won the scoring title three times, the Hart Trophy twice and the Conn Smythe Trophy once. He has the highest career point and assist totals in Montreal history, as well as the second-highest goal total behind Rocket Richard. And when Lafleur reached the 1,000-point mark, he did it in just 720 games, the shortest time taken to hit that milestone in NHL history. After that, he concluded: "I'm not going to say that now that I have 1,000 points I can sit down and relax. I've got five or six years to go and I can shoot for more."

Sportswriter Bill Libby said that Lafleur "typifies what is best about this sport. He is an artist on skates, creating scoring plays the way a painter puts a vivid scene on a canvas with a brush. His start is explosively quick and his stride is swifter than the others. He sees where his opponents and teammates are and anticipates where they will be. He is a spectacular athlete in a spectacular sport and it is wonderful watching him work."

During his 14 years with the Canadiens, Lafleur and his teammates won the Stanley Cup five times. After Montreal won the Stanley Cup in 1978, he borrowed it for the weekend without telling anyone to show his friends back home in Thurso. Lafleur boldly displayed it on his front lawn for all his neighbors to see!
D Pierre Pilote

Won the Stanley Cup in 1961 and was a retroactive Conn Smythe Trophy winner. Three time Norris winner and three time runner up. Eight times a first or second All-Star in the 60s. Scored more points in the decade than any other defenceman. Five times a league leader for points by a defenceman.


He was one of the most feared defensemen of Original Six hockey in the NHL.

Pilote also became renowned as a tough guy who should be avoided, a reputation enhanced when he knocked both Henri and Maurice Richard out cold during the same mix-up. Pilote played the next 376 games in a row with Chicago, including five seasons without missing a game. His "iron man" streak finally ended when he dislocated a shoulder during the 1961-62 season. Pilote was a superb defenseman at both ends of the ice. In his own zone he blocked shots fearlessly, but he also wasn't afraid to join the rush and he was a first-rate passer. He teamed with Elmer "Moose" Vasko on the blue line, and together they formed the best duo in the league in the late 1950s.

After the Hawks captured the Stanley Cup in the spring of 1961, Pilote was made captain in October 1961 on a team that also featured Bobby Hull and Stan mikita. He was named to the First or Second All-Star Team every year from 1960 to 1967 and played in eight consecutive All-Star games during that time. He won the Norris Trophy for three successive years, 1963 to 1965, and finished as one of Chicago's leading scorers from the blue line.

He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1975.
F/D Fred "Cyclone" Taylor

He's a two-time Stanley Cup champ, but my favourite statistic is that he was a first team All-Star every season in different leagues from 1900 to 1918. He's considered one of the fastest players of all time. Played the eastern part of his career as a defenceman, but moved to forward when he moved to Vancouver. Won a cup once at both positions. Named to the hockey hall of fame in 1945. Often called the best player to never play in the NHL.


Frederick Wellington Taylor performed exceptionally well at several positions during his legendary career. His dynamic rushes and memorable scoring feats made him one of hockey's first superstars. He was one of the few players in the history of the game capable of skating backwards as fast as many could forwards.

Taylor's excellent play helped Ottawa win the ECAHA championship in 1909 and the team became holders of the Stanley Cup.

While employed on the West Coast, Taylor averaged more than a goal per game in a formidable display of offensive prowess. His second Stanley Cup triumph came in 1915. He scored six goals in the Millionaires' three-game domination of Ottawa in the championship showdown. The sheer magnitude of Taylor's excellence in the series elevated him to the status of hero right across Canada.

Taylor led all PCHA goal scorers in 1918 and 1919 with 32 and 23 goals respectively. Even though the Toronto Arenas defeated Vancouver in the 1918 Stanley Cup championship, Taylor proved to be the most revered performer in the match-up. He finished ahead of all playoff scorers with nine goals in seven games.

He accumulated 194 goals in 186 regular-season games while carving out a reputation as one of hockey's surefire drawing cards. He earned the remarkable distinction of being named to the First All-Star Team everywhere he played from 1900 to 1918.
G Chuck Gardiner

Gardiner's relatively short career had one of the greatest peaks for any goaltender in history. He was a three time first all star, two time Vezina winner (when it was for GAA) and a hockey hall of famer. Gardiner is also known for taking his game to the next level in the playoffs. His career playoff GAA was 1.42 compared to a regular season GAA of 2.02.


Prior to his untimely death in June 1934, Gardiner led the Black Hawks to their first Stanley Cup and recorded 42 shutouts and a goals-against average of 2.02 over only seven years of NHL service.

Gardiner's hands and feet were lightning quick, as was his mind. Rarely was he caught unaware on the ice by an opposing shooter. He was also a fierce competitor who periodically left his net to thwart an attack or dove into a pile of players to seize the puck.

In 1930-31, he recorded a league-high 12 shutouts and a stellar goals-against mark of 1.73. He also earned his first of three selections to the NHL First All-Star Team. The following year his netminding heroics brought him the Vezina Trophy. Gardiner's exceptional play was augmented by his ability to direct his teammates on the ice, a factor that led to his being chosen to serve as team captain in 1933-34.

That 1933-34 season was both triumphant and tragic for Chuck Gardiner. During the regular season, he led the NHL with 10 shutouts en route to his second Vezina Trophy. In the playoffs, his goal keeping was the backbone of Chicago's first-ever Stanley Cup championship, over the Red Wings. For the third time in his career Gardiner topped all playoff goalies in shutouts. A gifted and durable performer, Gardiner led all NHL goalkeepers by playing every minute in six consecutive seasons from 1928-29 to 1933-34.

Unfortunately, Gardiner passed away on June 13, 1934, as a result of a brain hemorrhage. The Wee Scot was considered by his peers to be among the elite netminders of his time. Many in fact referred to him as the finest ever at his craft. A member of Canada's Sports Hall of Fame, Gardiner was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame as a charter member in 1945.
LW Toe Blake

One of the only Hart and Art Ross winners left. A winner both as a player and later as a legendary coach. Underrated as a LW perhaps due to his greatness behind the bench. Won the Stanley Cup twice with the Canadiens and once as a bench player with the Maroons. Won the Art Ross and Hart Trophies in 1939. Three time first team all-star, two time second team all-star and Lady Byng winner. Also had a retro-active playoff MVP. Scored 62 points in 58 playoff games compared to 527 points in 577 regular season games. He upped his play when it counted the most.


Long before he became a coaching legend, left wing Hector "Toe" Blake was a talented scorer and NHL star. He totaled 235 career goals, including six 20-goal seasons and became known as "the Old Lamplighter" in honor of his skill for putting the puck in the net. During the 1940s he formed one of the league's most dangerous lines, the Punch Line, with Maurice Richard and Elmer Lach.

Blake's first two full NHL seasons were solid, but he took his game to a higher level with a league-leading 47 points in 1938-39. His effort was rewarded with the Hart Trophy and placement on the NHL First All-Star Team. He was teamed up with Elmer Lach and Maurice Richard in 1943 and the Punch Line led Montreal to the Stanley Cup later that season. It was the Old Lamplighter's goal at 9:12 of overtime in game four that gave Montreal a 5-4 win over Chicago and possession of hockey's ultimate prize. That year he led all post-season scorers with seven goals and 18 points. His record for that playoffs of two points per game went untouched until Wayne Gretzky took over the NHL record book in the 1980s.

In 1944-45, Blake notched a personal-best 67 points while helping linemate Richard become the first 50-goal shooter in NHL history. The next year Blake led all playoff scorers with seven goals in nine games to help bring the team its second championship in three years. That year the veteran winger was also presented the Lady Byng Trophy for his sportsmanlike play.

Blake retired at the conclusion of the 1947-48 season with 235 regular season goals and 25 playoff markers to his credit.

Team Style - We will play most of our lines. The top two will see about 18 mins each, 14 for the 3rd, and 10 minutes for the 4th line. We will punish opposing defensivemen every chance we get with our forecheckers (Sutters, McDonald, Nolan, Roenick). The powerplay will be run between the defense and Yzerman/Stastny. The wings will serve as the primary shooters and Nolan/Sutter will crash the net in search of garbage. In the case of playing a very strong offensive team, Yzerman will center Koroll and Fraser and play head to head with the other teams top line. Langway will see duty against other teams top lines, if a stronger defensive presence is needed Svedberg will be subbed out for Johansson. The top 4 D-men will see most of the icetime.
