OK, well, maybe I don't feel so bad now. I never considered him lazy. There are more talented players available, significantly, actually, but I get the impression that selecting them gets yor team prematurely branded as one that can't win just because he's on the roster.

Expecting a guy with one 70-point season (in a contract year), one 60-point season, zero 50-assist seasons, and two 30-goal seasons, to be a first-line centre, when playing an 82-game season, even in a minor league draft, is expecting way too much.
in any all-time context i'd expect him to not be on a scoring line: decent third line centre, good fourth line centre....

what? he scored an overtime stanley-cup winning goal with good playoff numbers: 20 pts in 23 games one playoffs, 15 pts in 23 playoff games the following playoffs,... i totally will be UP-valuing him in the playoffs! regular season voting however i'd be concerned about how much ice time a team is relying on him for: 1000+ PIM is a plus, he can compete,... he can disappear too...

Paul MacLean



he owned the corners and the boards, drawing defensemen wide, opening up room for his team's centre,
burning defenses when they didn't commit physically

324 goals, 673 points in a mere 719 NHL games (career average of 37 goals a season over 9 seasons!! almost a point per game average!), three 40+ goal seasons, eight 30+ goal seasons, six 100+ PIM seasons (968 PIM total), all-star game (1985), a strong power forward, 4th in Winnipeg Jets all-time career scoring.

4th round reflections:

players stolen from the Redmen long list: Hebenton, Christian
players who should've been on the list: Paladiev, Balon, Stasiuk
went pretty much as expected: Galley, Kehoe
players perhaps drafted a bit early: Janney, Koivu
interesting picks: Maxwell, Hutton

The rookies might find it hard to believe, but this is about the pace we need to set. We should be finishing nearly a round per day.

My 2 cents about Arnott... While I wouldn't use him as a 1st C, an argument can be made for him being a very adequate 2nd C. BM is wily enough to have found out about a guy none of us have a clue, use him as a 1st C, and select him around round 13.

The Belleville Bulls select LW Alex Tanguay


Born Ste-Justine, Quebec, Alex Tanguay scored 101 goals in three junior seasons with the QMJHL's Halifax Mooseheads and was a QMJHL/CHL All-Rookie Team member in 1997 as well as a member of Canada's 1998 World Junior Team.

He was chosen 12th overall by the Colorado Avalanche in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. After his final season in Halifax, Tanguay joined the AHL's Hershey Bears before making his NHL debut in 1999-00, scoring 17 goals as an NHL rookie. The next year Tanguay broke through with 27 goals and registered 21 post-season points while helping the Avalanche capture their second the Stanley Cup in franchise history. Tanguay scored two key goals in the seventh game of the finals versus the New Jersey Devils and was a key to the fortunes of the club after the injuries felled star pivot Peter Forsberg.

A versatile forward, Tanguay's offensive numbers dropped in 2001-02 before rebounding the following year with 67 points. In 2003-04, Tanguay established a career high in assists (54) tying teammate Joe Sakic for second in the league and points (79) despite missing 13 games in the latter stages of the season.

On June 24, 2006 Alex Tanguay and a 2007 or 2008 conditional draft pick were sent to Calgary for Jordan Leopold and a 2006 second-round draft pick.

In 580 Games Alex has 170 Goals, 349 Assists, and 519 Points

A vetern of 2 World Wars, WCHL standout and HHOF LW George Hay

4-time WCHL/WHL 1st team all-star
1 2nd team WCHL/WHL all-star
WCHL/WHL Championship
4th in NHL scoring in '27-'28
Named to unofficial all-star team selected by NHL coaches
Detroit Falcons Captain

When he retired from hockey in 1933, sports writer Sam Green wrote: "He ranked with the great forwards of the game, combining speed and poise, aggressiveness and finesse, with unsurpassed mechanical ability."

Jack Adams said there was never a better left winger than Hay at his best.

"I've seen a lot of good ones, but none who had more stuff than George. He was in a class with Aurial Joliat, Jack Walker, Bun Cook or Harvey Jackson. He could do everything, that fellow
. Besides, he was one of the easiest players to handle I ever had -- always in condition, always on the job, always willing to play any position. He never got into any trouble on the ice and was rarely sent to the penalty box.

Detroit's first 20-goal scorer was considered by many to be the finest stickhandler in hockey. "Hay leaves all checks behind," noted one scouting report.

More on Jeff Brown.

From LOH

Quote:
Jeff Brown was a mobile defenceman who played over 700 games for six different clubs. He was a superior passer who liked to gamble by rushing with the puck or pinching in from the blueline.
Brown also had the reputation as one of the best powerplay quaterbacks of his time, not to mention he was great in the playoffs.

With Brown, along with Baker, the Americans feel that we have two of the top offensive defenseman in the draft.

The Moose Jaw Millers are pleased to select a top-notch defensive defenceman. He can be utilized on our shut-down pairing, or on our top pairing with George Owen to give Owen a little more freedom to join the rush. A five-time Stanley Cup champion, a Canada Cup champion, an absolutely brilliant man, and one of the last players from the CIAU/CIS to play in the NHL: D Dr. Randy Gregg.

With our other pick, we are pleased to select one of the top snipers in the draft. He has five 35-goal seasons, a 40-goal season and a 50-goal season. A Rocket Richard winner, a 2003 second-team all-star, and a key player on a Cup champion: RW Milan Hejduk.

I'm going to have him on the first or second pairing... depends on who else I can snag. He'll be counted on to play a solid two-way game. he's a guy with a lot of experience who can't hurt you at either end so we're happy to have him.

2-way RW Johnny Peirson

3 time top-10 finish in NHL scoring
2 NHL all-star game appearances

Peirson quickly evolved into a useful player who could backcheck, strive for team-oriented goals and harvest his share of points. He cracked the 20-goal barrier four times during his eleven years as a Bruin.

Belleville Bulls select defenseman Wade Redden.

When great defensive prospects for the year 1995 came to mind, two names were on the lips of most NHL scouts: Bryan Berard and Wade Redden. The two were selected at the top of the Draft, Berard going to the Senators and Redden to the Islanders. But before the season got underway in 1996, the clubs traded their prospects thus landing Redden in the nation's capital.

Redden got his start in hockey on the prairies of Saskatchewan where he grew up as a fast-skating farm boy. Hockey was no stranger to his family, having heard, no doubt, of his father's trip to the Memorial Cup finals while toiling for the Regina Pats in 1969.

The younger Redden got his chance with the Brandon Wheat Kings in 1996. But like his father's end, the Wheat Kings fell short in the finals even though Redden was voted a tournament all-star. But the young rearguard was not left wanting for glory, having won two gold medals at the World Junior Championships in 1995 and 1996.

The Loydminster, Saskatchewan native emerged as one of the top all-around defenceman in the NHL, posting a career high 47 points during the 2000-01 season and continues to be a leader on the ice leader with the Sens.

Following the NHL lockout of 2004-05 the Senators re-signed the defenceman to a two-year contract.

Aside from his World Junior experience, Redden, is a three-time member of Canada's World Championship team (1999, 2001 and 2005) a member of Canada's World Cup winning team in the Summer of 2004, and was a member of Canada's Olympic Team in the 2006 Olympics.


WHL Rookie of the Year (1994)
WHL East Second All-Star Team (1995)
WHL East First All-Star Team (1996)
Memorial Cup Tournament All-Star Team (1996)
Played in NHL All-Star Game (2002)
Represented Canada on 8 Different Occasions.


We have PM'ed the next GM.
