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.
Benoit is a Smoke Eaters legend and an excellent scorer.
An entertaining right winger, Joe Benoit was a member of the Montreal Canadiens, providing the team with a spectacular scoring during the early 1940s. Between 1940 and 1943, Benoit was one of the team's leading point-getters.
International hockey fans are most familiar with Benoit as a member of the Trail (British Columbia) Smoke Eaters squad that represented Canada in the World Championships at the end of the 1938-39 season. In seven games during the World tournament, he recorded six goals and three assists for nine points, helping Canada win the gold medal.
Guys ill be gone for this weekend. And Jon (Nate) wont be able to get on due to the Hurricane and also for other reasons that will remain unnamed. I was wondering if anyone could take a huge list. Id prefer someone that I know would have some of these names cause I know some will look at the list and use it to help.
I can take it if you'd like chaos. We've already got a semblance of a plan and are probably looking for different positions anyway. Your other option might be (if you're worried about poaching) is to see if an ATD GM who isn't in the MLD would like to sub in for you this weekend.
Just to make sure when my pick comes up, I will be making three selections because of the double picks, correct?
Thanks, pit. I knew I was going to be out for a while, watching the Rider game. (70s, that was a total waste of time).
Anyways, we're pleased to add Sydor to our team. He's a two time Stanley Cup champion. He's smart. He's an outstanding puck-moving defenceman. He'll be counted on to advance the puck to our forwards. He's responsible in his own zone. He's played some of his best hockey in the playoffs.
I believe he has another 20 mins (I posted GBC's pick 3 hrs 40 mins ago). I'll make my picks as soon as his time is up and then GBC will be back on the clock as he'll continue to be skipped as he already has one skipped pick.
Bergen selects C Vladimir Zabrodsky, LW Sergei Kapustin, and LW Martin Straka.
Zabrodsky was Malecek’s successor as the great in Czech hockey. In a ranking of the greatest Czech players of all time, he was voted third behind Jagr and Hasek. He was extremely talented with the puck on his stick and was an excellent goal scorer.
“His individual play single-handedly won his team many games. He led the national team to the 1947 and 1949 World Championships. He also participated in the 1948,54,55 and 56 World Championships as well as two Olympic tournaments (1948 and 56). In the 1948 Olympic games in St. Moritz Switzerland, he led the tournament in scoring and his team to a 6-0-1 record, good enough for the silver medal.
Zábrodský was the Czech national team. He represented the Czechs 93 times and scored an incredible 158 goals, including 29 goals in 7 World Championship games in 1947 and 21 in 8 Olympic games in 1948 !”
Kapustin was a strong, and talented LWer who was a Olympic gold medalist and played a much tougher game than was normally seen from Soviet players. But he combined that game with the skill you would see from a typical Soviet player.
Straka is a solid offensive player who once finished 4th in the league in scoring. He’s experience playing with talented players who like to have the puck on their stick (Lang/Kovalev and Jagr/Nylander) and can act as a decent defensive presence and provide hustle without hurting a line offensively.
St. Louis is long gone. I know this because there was a scandal surrounding him in ATD9. He was listed as picked at one point so I marked him off my list. I really wanted him but had to settle for Pat Verbeek at RW with Lecavalier on my second line. Then someone took St. Louis 113 picks later and they explained that St. Louis was never actually chosen and was posted in the original post by mistake.... or maybe I have this chain of events wrong... But I can't see myself taking Verbeek with St. Louis on the board.

Okay sorry my search thing has sucked recently.
The Kelowna Rockets select Corey Perry to be our RW. Now lets hope he hasn't been picked.
