Good on him. Nice to see Taylor move up the ladder as well. He and Newsy were likely the premiere talents of the first quarter of the games history.

Actually, it's more that the place is nice, which makes people in general look happier and... well, prettier.
Heck, even ME could look like a donkey if I would be, let's say, from Toronto.

I'd say.... Start the clock, only if we get the approval of the 4 next GM's... guys that will select if the clock starts and MIGHT miss it if they aren't exactly aware of the vote procedure.

EDIT: yeah, EB is right. everyone has already picked at least once, so they know the draft has started.
Is that why I missed it? I thought it was just because I was late for the start. I never realized it was because the clock was started early.

Vancouver selects Henri Richard.

The prototypical playmaking 1st line centre - ''The Pocket Rocket'' checked in at #29 on THN 1998 Greatest players list.

Nice to see Cyclone Taylor getting respect and moving up in the draft.

I was seriously thinking about picking him if I moved up.

From his HOF bio:

"He earned the remarkable distinction of being named to the First All-Star Team everywhere he played from 1900 to 1918."

I only had a couple minutes to PM my pick in the morning and didn't have time for a nice write-up with everything else (although I'm lazy and probably wouldn't have done it anyways)

Looks like we'll start the clock tonight. One thing I am going to do just to be fair for anyone not coming to HF tonight, the clock will technically begin at 4am est so that the first pick isn't due until noon eastern tomorrow. Regardless, the picks will be clocked as of tomorrow.

We considered Smith at 51. It was between him and Kurri.

This sounds a bit like counting Gretzky's WHA / OHL / bantams records ... those 18 seasons (none of which was more than 25 games, including playoffs), were split between the Pacific Coast Hockey Association, the National Hockey Association, the East Coast Hockey Association, Western Professional Hockey Associated, East Coast Amateur Hockey Association, International Professional Hockey League, Manitoba Hockey League and Junior Ontario Hockey Association. He was 16 for the first of those seasons.

NHL.com posted some articles on Mr. Hockey, as it's his birthday on Monday. They weren't the most informative but I thought they were decent reads:
