First there was Watson.

Then there was Peters.

Now, in my third draft, the suspense is building among you all, so tense you can feel it in the air. You are all dying to know: Who will seventieslord's Jimmy be this time?

I introduce to you, making his first ATD/MLD/AAA appearance....

RW Jimmy Ward.

Quote:
Jimmy Ward enjoyed a prosperous 12-year NHL career, eleven of which were spent with the Montreal Maroons. Ward was known for his resiliency and tenacity, rarely missing any action due to injury. He was also a consistent player, scoring at least ten goals in ten of the 12 seasons back when the NHL regular season was just 48 games.

Ward's best statistical year came in 1931-32, when he had 19 goals and 19 assists in 48 games. He was a member of one Stanley Cup winning team with the Maroons in 1934-35, when Montreal defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs in three straight games. He finished his NHL career playing 36 games for the Montreal Canadiens in 1938-39, scoring four goals and three assists.
In Ward's best season, he was 10th in the NHL in both goals and assists, and two seasons later, again placed in the top-10 in assists. A dependable second line performer if I ever saw one!

Chicago selects C Larry Wilson

Brother of Johnny & father of Ron. Not a lengthy NHL career. Only 152 games but got his name on the Stanley cup with the Red Wings in 49-50. Had a long productive AHL career which probably means he was NHL calibre back in the 50's, Also this card is my favorite of all time.

The Blades select D Warren Godfrey.

Quote:
Defenceman Warren Godfrey played nearly 800 NHL games in the 50s and 60s. He was best known as a reliable stay-at-home blueliner on the Detroit Red Wings for many years.

Godfrey was a mainstay on the Wings' blueline for seven years beginning in 1955-56. His steady play helped Detroit finish first in the regular season standings once and contributed to playoff drives to the finals in 1956 and 1961. In June 1962 he was reacquired by the Boston Bruins at the Intra-League Draft and helped stabilize their blueline for one year before he was traded back to Detroit.

The one who played right wing in every one of the Islanders games over their first six and a bit years of existence (a franchise record streak), played in the 1976 all-star game, and was traded away before the franchise began to win championships, ending his career in L.A. in 1984 with 558 points in 897 NHL games played. THAT Billy Harris.

Just thought I'd let you guys know, I'm going to skip my pick today, I'm looking at a few options, but I need some more time. I'll make up both my picks tommorow night.

The Bulldogs select D. Zarley Zalapski


Quote:
Zarley Zalapski is a veteran of international hockey. He was a member of the Canadian National Team from 1985 to 1988 and participated in the World Hockey Championships and Olympic games during that time.

He was Pittsburgh's first choice in the 1986 Entry Draft and joined the Penguins after the 1988 Olympics. He had a superb rookie season in 1988-89 and was named to the NHL all-rookie team that year.

Zalapski was an offensive defenceman, posting a career high for goals in 1991-92 and points in 1992-93 as a member of the Hartford Whalers. He was a great skater with speed and agility during his prime years in the NHL.

Vanislander, nice pick. I had him slated For my next pick. He was a nice guy & I had the honor of meeting him several years ago when I lived in Ontario. A group of us used to go to the legion to watch the grey Cup (really to drink beer & shoot pool) & Billy was there representing a distillery & giving out Hockey trivia questions for prizes. I was soon banned as I knew all the answers (I am very good pre 1970) Anyways he was a great guy & was sorry to hear of his passing. He truly had a love for the game.

Van, thanks for showing me how to find & download images. Easy once you know how.

Would it be very "off the board" of Regina to select.....

C Vladimir Ruzicka?

Vladimir Ruzicka had a short NHL career as he came over during his prime years and amassed 167 points in 233 games, including a 39-goal season in 1991-92. In 15 straight seasons he scored over a point per game in the Czech league and has represenred the Czechs in countless international competitions, scoring over a point per game in 9 of 15 competitions for which stats are available. He is also a two-time player of the year in the Czech league, as well as a one-time leading goal scorer and two-time leading point getter.

Chicago selects RW-Tom Webster

Quote
It was the 1970-71 campaign that saw Webster's NHL career come to life when he joined the Detroit Red Wings, at that time a team sorely in need of scoring. With the benefit of a 78-game season, Webster proved his worth, scoring 30 goals, assisting on 37 others for a highly productive 67-point season.

But the biggest move of Webster's professional hockey career came in 1972 when he and many other NHLers opted to try their hand at the new World Hockey Association. Webster joined the New England Whalers, where he enjoyed six productive seasons. In his first WHA year, Webster scored 53 goals and 50 assists for 103 points. It would mark the only time in his professional career that he hit the 50-goal and 100-point plateaus. The Whalers went on to win the WHA championship that year, taking the Avco Cup. It was the one and only preofessional championship season for Webster. In 352 WHA games, he amassed 220 goals, 205 assists and 425 points-Legends 0f Hockey

The Niagara Americanadians select:
Defenseman - Gord Lane
Forward - Eric Daze
Coach - Bob Hartley


Gord Lane (1975-1985)


Gord Lane's career in pro hockey can be evenly divided between the bad and the good. The bad part was so negative in fact that even he couldn't foresee just how great things would be farther down the rink of life.

He started off just fine as an amateur with the Brandon Wheat Kings and the New Westminster Bruins. It was easy for the scouts to see that in Lane they would be getting a stay-at-home, stay-in-your face defender who could play a very bellicose brand of hockey.

The Pittsburgh Penguins picked him in the 1973 Entry Draft, but he never caught on with the club. Instead, he became a minor-league brawler in the IHL with the Fort Wayne Comets and the Dayton Gems. The former club released him because, by his own admission, he could fight but do little else on the ice. The local fans even maintained a "We Hate Gordie Lane" fan club.

But Lane was also a fighter from within. He refused to give up on his wish to play in the NHL. In 1976, he signed as a free agent with the Washington Capitals. In between a few minor-league outings, he managed to gain a toehold in the league over the three seasons that followed.

Then, in 1979, he left the Caps during a contract dispute and returned home to Brandon to consider new career options. While there, the phone rang with the Islanders' GM Bill Torrey on the line. The up-and-coming Isles were in need of a tough, ornery defender whose profile fit Lane's to a tee. Needless to say, he jumped at the offer, heading to Long Island near the end of the year.

The transition from the Caps to the Islanders meant a complete rebirth of Lane's career in hockey. He was paired with Dave Langevin and as a duo the two played solid, kitty-bar-the-door defense that laid the necessary foundation to help lead the club to four-straight Stanley Cup victories. Lane has been credited as being the team's most effective defender during that era.

He lasted with the Islanders for two additional seasons after the glory dust had settled. He retired in 1985 to take up a post as head coach of the Brandon Wheat Kings of the WHL. The gig didn't work out well, however, so he made a single-season comeback with the Springfield Indians of the AHL and then hung up his blades for good to coach the club in 1987-88.


Awards and Accomplishments:
Lord Stanleys Cup (1980,1981,1982,1983)


Eric Daze (1994-2006)


Eric Daze was drafted 90th overall in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft by the Chicago Blackhawks. Despite his strong junior career, most scouts did not hold him in high regard, questioning both his skating ability and his ruggedness.

Daze first rose to prominence while playing Midget hockey with the Laval Regents of the Quebec AAA Midget Hockey League. In 1992-93, he joined the QMJHL's Hull Olympiques, scoring 32 points in 55 games before moving on to the Beauport Harfangs late in the season. The following year with Beauport, he vastly improved on those stats, to 59 goals and 107 points and was named a QMJHL First Team All-Star. In 1994-95, he scored 54 goals and 99 points and was again named a QMJHL First Team All-Star. He won the CHL's Most Sportsmanlike Player award as well as the Viscount Alexander Award, which goes to the Junior Male Athlete of the Year in the province of Quebec.

Daze led the Quebec provincial under-17 Midget team to a silver medal at the 1992 World Hockey Challenge and was a key contributor to the Canadian under-20 junior team that skated to a gold medal at the 1995 World Junior Championships. That year, he was named a tournament All-Star.

In a shortened 1994-95 season, the 19-year-old Daze made his NHL debut on April 27 against the Dallas Stars. Just three nights later, he scored his first NHL goal against the Detroit Red Wings.

In 1995-96, Daze joined the Blackhawks full-time and collected 30 goals. After a couple of seasons tempered by injuries, Daze returned to form in 2000-01, scoring 33 goals before establishing a career high 38 in 2001-02.

Injuries would plague Daze once again in 2002-03, limiting his season to under 60 games for the first time in his nine year career and in 2003-04 suited up for a mere 19 games, while recovering from a back injury.Due to continuous back injuries, Daze has saw limited action throughout the 2005-06 season.

Aside from his World Junior experience, Daze represented Canada at the World Championships (1998-1999).

Awards and Accomplishments:
QMJHL First All-Star Team (1994, 1995)
WJC-A All-Star Team (1995)
Canadian Major Junior Most Sportsmanlike Player of the Year (1995)
NHL All-Rookie Team (1996)
Played in NHL All-Star Game (2002)
Represented Team Canada at the World Juniors (1995) and World Championships (1998,1999)
4 30 Goal Seasons (1996,1998,2001,2002)


Bob Hartley (1998-2007)


Coaching Record:
W: 330
L: 220
T: 61
OTL: 34
Stanley Cups: 1
*Note - Also an AHL Championship*

That concludes the Niagara Americanadians draft.

Great picks! Two guys I was thinking about and one I should have been thinking about. I was hoping Lane would get his due by the end of this draft.

Alfredshems IK select a tough defensive forward, one who should have probably gone in the MLD, F Don Saleski. With our second pick, we select a speedy goalscorer with potential to do more then what he achieved, often mostly because he didn't have much of a supporting cast in Vancouver. F Tony Tanti.

Quote:
He was known in the NHL as "Big Bird" thanks to the popularity of Sesame Street, which had become a huge success when Don Saleski began his career with the Philadelphia Flyers in 1972. As legend had it, as the Flyers skated around in their pre-game warm up, a small fan commented that Saleski looked like the big yellow bird with the elephant friend that no one could see, which of course a teammate overheard. The nickname was born.

Saleski was drafted 6th by the Flyers, (64th overall) in the 1969 Amateur Draft from the Regina Pats; (the draft would also see the Flyers take Bobby Clarke in the first round). His first full season with the Flyers was in 1972-73 when he scored 21 points in his rookie campaign. Known as a defensive forward, he broke out in only his second year with the team, scoring 40 points in 77 games and winning the Stanley Cup. Saleski and the Flyers were back in the finals once again the next season and took home a second straight Cup. The 1975-76 season saw Saleski finish with career highs in assists with 26, points with 47 and the first of three straight years with 20 or more goals.
Quote:
Tanti set a Vancouver Canucks team record in his first full season with the Canucks, his second in the NHL. He scored 45 goals bettering Darcy Rota's previous record of 42. Tanti became a fan favorite in Vancouver, a team not accustomed to having a fine goal scorer. And Tanti became their first true sniper in franchise history. He scored 39 goals after his 45 goal campaign, followed by 39, 41 and 40 goal seasons.

Tanti was the master of the tip-in and scored many of his goals on the power play. In those 5 consecutive seasons of scoring 39 goals or more, Tanti scored 19, 14, 17, 15 and 20 power play goals, respectively.

Despite Tanti's fine scoring exploits, the Canucks were consistent cellar dwellers, often missing the playoffs. One would have to wonder what heights Tanti could have achieved with a stronger team such as Edmonton or Calgary, or even if he stayed in Chicago where he would have played with names like Denis Savard and Doug Wilson.

Ward is one of my grandfather's all-time favourite players. He remembers him as a hard-working, dependable second liner. Looks like a good fit.

Tom "Bomber" Bladon



holds unbroken NHL record for points by a defenseman in a game: 8
two-time Stanley Cup champion (1974, 1975)
in the all-star game (1977, 1978)

The 19-year-old Bladon led all Flyers defensemen in points in his rookie season in 1973 and repeated the feat the following year when his team won it all, the offensive defenseman scoring 4 goals, 10 points in 16 playoff games in the successful championship run. The 6'1, 195-lbs blueliner had size but didn't use it, one of the very few non-physical players on the Broadstreet Bullies, to the chagrin of the coach and the crowd some nights. However, he scored 10+ goals in 5 of his 6 seasons in Philadelphia and amassed 212 points in 422 games as a Flyer.

The Bulldogs round out their selections with

F. Murray Craven

Quote:
Despite his obvious offensive prowess, the Red Wings sent Craven to the Philadelphia Flyers. It was a move that changed the course of his career - for the better. The deal consisted of Craven and Joe Paterson going to Philadelphia for Darryl Sittler. Craven suited up for all 80 games in the 1984-85 season, responding with 26 goals and 35 assists for 61 points. He was also instrumental in helping the Flyers advance to the Stanley Cup finals where they lost in five games to the defending champion Edmonton Oilers. In 19 post-season games that spring, Craven netted four goals and ten points in 19 games.

Just two years after that strong post-season run, Craven and the Flyers were back in the Cup final once again facing the powerhouse Edmonton Oilers. While they made it an extremely close finals, the Oilers edged out a tense seven-game victory to claim their third Stanley Cup in four years. Losing that Cup final was especially hard on Craven and the rest of the Flyers, who felt they had the team to win it all that year.

From an individual standpoint, Craven's best seasons came as a member of the Flyers. In 1987-88, he hit the 30-goal plateau while counting 76 points.

The Blades select C Dave Creighton.

Quote:
Dave Creighton had a 21-year professional hockey career, including 12 seasons in the NHL with the Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs, Chicago Blackhawks, and New York Rangers.

As an 18-year-old, Creighton led his hometown Port Arthur Bruins to the Memorial Cup championship in 1948. Later that calendar year, he appeared in 12 games with the Boston Bruins as well as 49 games with the Hershey Bears of the AHL, where he had 37 points. In 1949-50, Creighton earned a full-time roster spot with the Bruins, appearing in 64 games with the Bruins, scoring 18 goals and 31 points.

Creighton had three 20-goal seasons, two with the Bruins and one in New York with the Rangers. The 20-goal season in New York in 1955-56 also produced 51 points, the best of any of his 12 years in the league.
Creighton was also a five time all-star (not with the Cup winning team) and has an AHL MVP trophy to his name.

Note: Post as much info as you'd like but be prepared to have at least a 2-line bio for each player selected. At the end of the draft every team's collection of two line bios will be looked at together in our assessments of best overall crop of all-timers.
I'll be doing my two-line bios today. Everyone let's get 'em done!

pappyline has a model bio posted:

Chicago cougars select d Jack "Tex" Evans. First played in the NHL in 1948, Spent 7 full seasons with the Rangers and 5 with the Blackhawks. A member of the 61 Blackhawk cup team where he was on the second pairing with St. Laurent. Scored a key goal in the deciding game of the 61 final.
Though career stats might be worth adding: Evans had 989 PMs in 752 NHL games, in all-star game (1961, 1962).
