When I saw Wisent picked Giacomin as his back up goalie, It made me nervous so I will pick my starter now.

Guelph selects Chuck Rayner

The New York Rangers are proud (and a bit nauseated) to select the "quintessential money player", owner of 4 playoff overtime game winning goals (second all-time) including the 1980 Cup clinching goal, a physical, fluid skating skating banger who could fight, defend, and score some too,

RW Bobby Nystrom.

I was going to use one of those picks on a defenceman, but I wanted to complete my top line. Looks like it was the right decision if you guys had your sights on those two wingers.

Thanks for the kind words on Lowe. I'm a huge fan of the guy. He's who I based myself on as a player... wanted to be just like him. To make the smart, safe decisions and take care of your zone... but also help spur the forward with a good transition game. Not flashy but who doesn't need a Kevin Lowe on their team?

Always hesitant to take him 'cause I assumed I'd overrate him.

Actually, you picked him later than he usually goes. Nothing wrong with picking your favorites, I do it myself. I wouldn't consider him at all at this point but several others would.

We're kind of in a zone now in the draft where it's hard to point to right or wrong decisions. Do they suit your team or not is pretty much the only qualification.

Bah, terrible GM, but would've been perfect with Housley.

I disagree with that. In the tenth round or later, it is hard to identify truly bad picks without looking at the overall scheme, but didn't a bunch of the GMs just rip on Sidney Crosby?

As far as good picks go, there are still a few guys out there whose achievements dwarf their potential draft status as of now - ie. there are still players available who definitely should have already been drafted (based on demonstrable evidence) and can be called steals when taken at any point from here forward.

Paul Thompson was a very solid choice. Andy Bathgate would probably hit him with a stick for his coaching career in New York (I'm not worried about mentioning undrafteds here...Thompson as a coach was an almost hilariously overbearing tyrant and never won anything), but I'd still have liked to have Paul Thompson the player in Oakland.

we are at the point that there are players who weren't drafted over 24 rounds of atd7 who are MORE WORTHY than some already drafted in this draft

that's why i always think rounds 10-16 are a third b.s. ... i just don't buy the judgement of several picks per round

after rounds 8-9 it's just a crap shoot... or so it seems

That downside of that is that it's really easy to make a mistake as, to make a good pick, it's all about your research. There are some players not even drafted in the last minor league draft that are better than some players I drafted last time...

(finally!)

seattle takes 1 of the best offensive players of the 30s, and a great playoff performer who led his team to back to back cups:

marty barry.



nalyd, you are up.

Expletive, I was so certain that Barry was ours that, arrggghhhh!

I have three plans, weighing them out now...

For those waiting on me, BM67 won't be up for a while. I'm gonna wait an hour for Sturminator to reply to my messages, if nothing, then I have a plan that fits nicely in the Seal's game plan. But, isn't, you know, THE PLAN...

This draft has just been one big kick in the junk. The Moose Johnson pick by BM hurt me the most. My top 3 defenders were set in my mind. I thought for sure they would be Harvey, Johnson and Siebert...think again. This draft has easily been the most unpredictable I have seen.

i was trying to trade up a few spots, because i saw that several teams in front of us needed C's. we got lucky that barry wasn't picked.

i wanted moose johnson, too. his HHOF bio says he was a perennial all star, and when BM67 posted some retroactive award winners from ultimate hockey and trail of the stanley cup that had johnson winning a lot of hardware, i marked him down.

say, Evil Speaker, do you know how ultimate hockey got its info about players and decided who was the best, etc?

After much consideration, the Oakland Seals are proud to select a versitile Right Winger with a retroactive Conn Smythe, a 1st team all-star nod, 2 2nd team all-star nods and one of the best American born players ever.

RW Cecil Dillon

Overall goal scoring from 1931 through 1940:
#1 Busher Jackson (113 overall) 168 goals
#2 Charlie Conacher (53rd overall) 167 goals
#3 Nels Stewart (94th overall) 162 goals
#4 Cecil Dillon (279th overall) 160 goals
