Nice pick. Probably the best defenceman available. Certainly the best offensive defenceman available. Watch out for that curved shot.

I have to head out for an hour or two in a bit, is there someone I can forward mullin's list to if we don't get to his pick before I leave? I don't want to hold things up as the round turns around.

thanks for announcing the pick!

i usually log on and off quite frequently (though i'm always in the vicinity of my computer).

the teepees are pleased to add to the roster Markus Naslund (LW/RW)

Quote:
Coming off a season ending injury in 2000-01, Naslund rebounded with a career high 90 points and represented his homeland at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. Following a strong regular season the previous year, Naslund was paired with xxxx xxxx and xxxx xxxx in 2002-03 and became the most productive trio in the NHL. Naslund broke the 100-point barrier for the first time, finishing the season with 104 points, only two behind his World Junior linemate Peter Forsberg, and was second in goal scoring with 48. Naslund was voted as league MVP (Pearson Trophy) by his peers, and finished second to Forsberg in Hart balloting.

In 2003-04, Naslund point totals dropped to 84 (35-49-84) yet he managed to finish third in league scoring and lead the Canucks to first place in the Northwest Division before falling in seven games to the upstart Calgary Flames in the first round of the 2004 playoffs.

I don't prefer to be predictable. Langevin was a ****ing monster with the game on the line. Way under the radar, but can play on my team anytime.

Indeed, but the message I've written about Terry Harper applies. But with 32 teams, Langevin can play on any ATD teams. Certainely, the biggest riser so far.

With the 224th pick, the Montreal Wanderers selects a perennial PCHA 1st All-Star Team member on defense (1912, 1913, 1915, 1916, 1917, 1918, 1919, and 1921). He also happens to be a former Wanderer, and won the cup with them in 1907, 1908 and 1910. Particularily impressive was his 11 goals performance in 1908 - in 5 games.

With the 225th pick, the Montreal Wanderers picks the perfect player to man the Lalonde and Malone line. Rather big player for his era (6'1 185), he was considered one of, if not the, fastest skater of his time. It was said that this man could skate backwards as fast as forward, and that he also had one of the hardest shot of his time. He also had an extremely long tenure as a member of the Montreal Canadiens, something that was a little unusual by then.



RW/D Didier Pitre


Well, I don't know if that gives us the best first line of the draft, but it sure gives us the FASTEST 1st line of the draft.

Also, could somebody look if it's the 1st time that a GM selects two players born past 1900? If so, well,we probably win the award for the oldest selection ever made in an ATD in back to back picks.

A little more on our pick...

Cecil "Babe" Dye (1919-1931)


From Legends of Hockey:
Dye joined the Toronto St. Pats in 1918 when the team was still a senior OHA operation and led them to the championship. The coach of that team was the same man who coached the De La Salle team, Eddie Powers Sr. and Dye cited this man's influence as a major factor in his development as a player. Dye went on to play with the NHL St. Pats in 1919-20 on a line with Reg Noble and Jack Adams. Later, when Adams left Toronto to play in the Pacific League with Vancouver, Corb Denneny played on the line in his place. Dye was short at 5'8" and slight at just 150 pounds, and his strengths and weaknesses as a player were quickly exposed. On the downside, his skating ability was behind other NHLers, but because of his brilliant stickhandling and hard shot he made an impressive contribution to the team, scoring 11 goals in just twice as many games during his first season.

Three times between 1920 and 1925 Dye led the league in scoring. He twice scored goals in 11 consecutive games and in the 1924-25 season he counted 38, a Toronto record that stood for 35 years, until Frank Mahovlich entered the NHL. In his first six seasons, Dye scored a remarkable 176 goals in just 170 games, a pace that wasn't equaled until Wayne Gretzky came along in the 1980s and rewrote the NHL record book. Because of his weak skating combined with his high scoring, Dye always had an unbalanced goals-to-assists ratio. During his career, he scored 202 goals but made only 41 assists.

Dye's name is also in the record book on account of the 1922 Stanley Cup playoffs. The St. Pats played the champions of the Western Canada Hockey League, the Vancouver Millionaires, in a best-of-five finals. Dye scored two game-winning goals, including four in the fifth and final game, a 5-1 Toronto rout. In all he scored nine of the team's 16 goals, and those nine are still a Stanley Cup finals record. This was to be Dye's only taste of Cup victory.

For those who struggle to read bold white font on a white screen, MXD and Lappi just landed D Ernie "Moose" Johnson and RW Didier "Cannonball" Pitre. Nice picks on the old-timers. And nice visual aids, too.

Oh, he better have. Hatcher's been my one of my favorite players since I had the opportunity to see him lead the Stars over the Sabres in '99. I was ready to trade up from 239 just to be sure that I got the bruiser.

Right here. The Trail Smoke Eaters are proud to select (geez, I never thought I'd get the pleasure of typing that one again): big, skilled RW Ken Hodge.

I can’t believe how early Langevin went! I recall trying to take him halfway through MLD8 but he was taken just a bit earlier.

Also, not sold on Lehtinen on a first line…. At all. Or on a second line, for that matter. If you're drafting this guy, you're drafting him to assemble a strong shutdown line. At least that's how I see it.

He's been a legitimate (actually quite good) top line player in international competitions for his entire career and was a top line winger on a Stanley Cup winning team. I agree he isn't ideal but it could work.

the St. Catharines Teepees are pleased to select,

Kevin Lowe (D)


it may be a little early however, we were looking to pick up a defenceman that would compliment Paul Coffey on a defensive pairing. and, we believe that Kevin Lowe is just that player. Lowe's defensive prowess will allow Coffey to maximize his offensive game.

From "Legends of Hockey Network"
Quote:
His play was a quiet force and a defensive genius on a dynasty that was known for outscoring the opposition.

Lowe had outstanding hockey sense and vision which game him a superior advantage by understanding the defensive breakdown of the oncoming attack. An agile though not fast skater, Lowe used his anticipation to relieve the opposition of the puck. He would then safely move the puck up to one of his many outstanding forwards. It is safe to say that the Oilers forwards couldn't have cheated offensively like they did if they didn't have a defensive stalwart like Lowe to break up plays and spring the forwards loose with great transitional passes.

A rugged but intelligent physical player, Lowe played with fire and determination, hating to lose. While he never got the recognition of that his Oiler or Ranger teammates did, he was without doubt an integral part of 6 Stanley Cup championships.
King Clancy Memorial Trophy (1990)
Played in NHL All-Star Game (1984, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1993)

I think that it is a bit ridiculous that Adam Foote went before Kevin Lowe.
