The Early Era Aces

Alf Smith, coach

Jimmy Gardner - Harry Smith - Cecil Blachford
Haviland Routh - Moose Watson - Billy Gilmour
Smokey Harris - Clarence McKerrow -Jack Findlay


Dickie Boon - Moose Goheen
Clem Loughlin - Jack Campbell
George McNamara - Howard McNamara
Hamby Shore - Fred Lake

Tom Paton
Bert Lindsay

Which of the following would take the remaining five (5) spots on the team, and why:

Bruce Ridpath, Skene Ronan, Fred Whitcroft, Billy McGimsie, Frank Rankin, Alf Skinner, Fred Scanlan, Walter Smaill, Oliver Seibert, Jack Ruttan, Phat Wilson, Dolly Smith
Dang, good question. I should have answered this earlier. This is my specialty.

So basically we need three more forwards and a spare forward. Although your 7th and 8th defensemen can also play forward....

I'm going to say Alf Skinner first. He's a 4-time PCHA 2nd all-star team member with a retro Smythe. He was a scrappy clutch scorer. Good 4th-line guy.

I'm going to say no to Ruttan and Wilson, as they're defensemen. Rankin and Seibert are a bit too iffy due to being amateurs, and I don't think Ridpath and Swift are quite as good as the others.

That leaves Ronan, Whitcroft, McGimsie, Scanlan, Smaill. My gut tells me that although Whitcroft and McGimsie are in the Hall, their personal and team accomplishments don't match those of the other three. Put Ronan at center, Scanlan at LW, and make Smaill the versatile spare.

What do you think?

Sun Setters

coach Lindy Ruff
ass. coach Marc Crawford

Ryan Smyth - Saku Koivu - Todd Bertuzzi
Steve Sullivan - Craig Conroy - Jamie Langenbrunner
Jay Pandolfo - Rob Niedermayer - Darcy Tucker
Brian Rolston - Pavol Demitra - Darren McCarty

Pavel Kubina - Dan Boyle
Darryl Sydor - Jason Smith
Bryan McCabe - Bret Hedican
Sheldon Souray

Nikolai Khabibulin
Olaf Kolzig
J.S. Giguere

vs.

Sun Risers

coach Randy Carlyle
ass. coach Peter Laviolette

Rick Nash - Brad Richards - Marion Gaborik
Simon Gagne - Ryan Getzlaf - Johan Franzen
Alex Tanguay - Marc Savard - Mike Richards
Patrick Marleau - Scott Gomez - Sami Pahlsson

Dion Phaneuf - Brian Campbell
Jay Bouwmeester - Ed Jovanovski
Mike Green

Miikka Kiprusoff
Henrik Lundqvist
Cam Ward

At least two more are needed for the Sun Risers blueline and the four remaining candidates are: Mattias Ohlund, Andrei Markov, Chris Phillips, Wade Redden. Which ones have more to prove and are likely to increase their all-time stock?
I think Redden, at this point, is what he is. He could hang on, Dave Ellett-style, or possibly Glen Wesley- style, as a decent #2-3 defenseman but he won't do anything special to boost his legacy except longevity. Of course, at his best he was much better than Ellett or Wesley ever were. Ohlund, in Tampa Bay, can't be too much of a factor and then there are always injuries with him. Phillips could easily play another decade and be a major part of Ottawa's inevitable turnaround. markov is in one of the best markets in the world, is popular, fairly young, and has no major weaknesses as a player. He'd be my other pick.

correct!

You actually get a bigger avatar limit as a sponsor.

And I wonder how many people actually knew it was Svehla.

He's one of my favourite players ever. One of those guys I always wished the Leafs would get, and then they did!

It's voting time!

Submit your votes for Regina-Tidewater and Manitoba-Amherst to VanIslander, and for Helsinki-Belleville and North Pole-Weyburn to me.

As usual, we need the winner, number of games, and three stars.

Eliminated GMs: Voting throughout the playoffs is part of your responsibility as a GM. Please take a moment to read the (rather short) playoff threads and pick a winner.

I'm also sending reminder PMs for this.

I believe the only players left on the all-star teams are Patrick, Bain, Ricci, and Barasso, right?

Also, when is round 3 voting opening? I want to know how much debate time I have.

I was planning for two full days of discussion like the last two rounds, but if it keeps up like this, I see no reason why I shouldn't extend it a day or two, to maximize discussion.

The lack of Harris voting can be explained pretty easily....

He's not even the best LW on his team, so Lynn Patrick got all the voted Harris would have received.

Doesn't seem like that's the case.

I'm going to open up voting now, and hope that most people have submitted their votes by early tomorrow morning. It looks like everyone has said what they wanted to say in their series threads, and of course the opportunity is still there to say more.

Votes for Regina/Amherst go to VanIslander; votes for North Pole/Helsinki go to me.

A PM will be sent to everyone right away.

No, please don't vote on your own series. The "free 1st place vote for voting" idea has worked well and encourages votes but I wouldn't introduce it in the playoffs except perhaps in the ATD, where we have 28-32 teams.

Reasons:

1) active teams almost always vote, so their freebies would wash out,

2) in the event that one team votes and another doesn't, the person getting the freebie vote would have a pretty big impact on their own series when only 8-10 others are voting. In the ATD, where 20-25 others are voting, then perhaps the benefit of incenting GMs to vote is worth the potential impact they'll have on their series.

3) The real problem is getting eliminated GMs to vote.

Voting for the MLD Final is now open.

I am almost certainly going camping tomorrow, and I'm in the finals, so of course, votes will go to VanIslander.

Please include the winner, number of games, and the three stars of the series.

Now I've got to be out in the boonies all weekend wondering how my series went!

Reminder PMs are being sent.
