Jeez, Triffy had put such effort into his team, too. Complete with a roster post linked to his bios, seventieslord/EB style. I'm surprised he couldn't at least come in and make his last 4 picks just so his team was complete, and then check out after that.
As for chaos, I really hope he gets in here and makes 8 picks. This is not like him at all.
What a waste it would be to make picks for 8-10 days and then just abandon it.
You received the PM why..anyone else who wants to know what happened can PM me. Ill have my picks soon.
721 points in 1012 games
Six times best on Buffalo Sabres team in points scored
2000 NHL All-Star game
2003 NHL All-Star game
In addition to a good nose for goals, his assets always included excellent physical conditioning and brilliant skating.
In the Sabres jersey, his productivity increased. In the 1998-99 season, he reached the 40-goal mark and was the team's best scorer and was a key player in the Sabres run to later that spring to the Stanley Cup final against the Dallas Stars who would eventualy win the series in six games.
Following a gold medal performance at the 2002 World Championships, Satan continued his strong play for the Sabres over the course of the next two seasons and returned to the Worlds in 2004.
Centre Ivan Boldirev was a superior puck handler with a natural touch around the net.
The talented pivot toiled for nearly three years on one of the NHL's all time sad sack franchises. In May 1974, his career took a turn for the better when he was acquired by the Chicago Black Hawks. Boldirev spent nearly five years in the Windy City where he worked the power play and teamed effectively with Grant Mulvey and Darcy Rota.
Late in the 1978-79 season, the clever centre was part of major trade between the Hawks and the Atlanta Flames which involved star forward Tom Lysiak. Boldirev averaged over a point per game for his new club but the Flames were knocked out in the first round of the post-season. The next February he was traded to the Vancouver Canucks to add playmaking savvy and experience to the club. His best season came in 1981-82 when he scored 33 goals playing on a line with Dave "Tiger" Williams and Tony Currie notched eight playoff markers as the club reach the Stanley Cup finals for the first time.
Midway through the 1982-83 season he was traded to the Detroit Red Wings for Mark Kirton. Boldirev set a career-high in 1983-84 with 35 goals and helped Detroit qualify for the playoffs for only the second time in twelve years. He slipped to 19 goals the next season but did reach the 1,000 game milestone before retiring.
With their final two picks in the 11th AAA draft, the Cumberland County Cool Blues are pleased to select first, a 1000 game veteran who is an ideal fit as a seventh defenseman. He won't bring much offense, but he will make up for that with heart and determination, from London, Ontario...
Originally Posted by Legends of Hockey There is likely no one who enjoyed playing hockey as much as Brad Marsh. A first-round draft choice of the Atlanta Flames in 1978, he joined the ranks of NHL players that fall, playing all 80 games with the Flames that season. When Atlanta relocated to Calgary for 1980-81, Marsh went with the team up to Alberta and stayed there until he was traded to Philadelphia for Mel Bridgman in November 1981.
Marsh was an exuberant Flyer until the completion of the 1987-88 season. He was picked up by the Maple Leafs in the waiver draft preceding the 1988-89 season. He quickly became a fan favourite. What he lacked in polish, he made up for in enthusiasm. His skating style, almost running on his skates, was awkward, but it got him efficiently from place to place. In a league of conformity, Brad Marsh was one of the last NHL skaters to play without a helmet...
...Brad Marsh will be remembered for his zest for the game of hockey. He certainly won't be recalled as a sniper. Through 1,086 NHL games, Brad Marsh scored a total of 23 goals--a pace of one every 47 games played. Brad Marsh was not blessed with a natural talent to play hockey. But he was born with a strong physique and a copious supply of determination and willingness to work hard. He put those attributes to work, spending four seasons with the London Knights where, in his final campaign, he picked up 63 points and 192 penalty minutes in 62 games. His offensive output and his gritty play set him up as the Atlanta Flames first-round pick of the 1978 Amateur Draft.
Marsh made the jump straight into the NHL and quickly established himself as an honest, lunch-pail defenseman who entertained adoring fans with his likable personality and playing style. He lasted with the Flames until after they moved to Calgary when, in 1982, he was dispatched to Philadelphia.
With the Flyers, Marsh found a stylistic home where, for more than six seasons, he relished his role as a plodding, stay-at-home crease-clearer who helped his team make it to the Stanley Cup finals in 1985 and 1987. The only sour note of his career was the fact that his club fell short of the Grail on both occasions.
In 1988, Marsh joined the Maple Leafs for two-and-a-half entertaining seasons before closing out his career with stints in Detroit and, finally, Ottawa, where he racked up one final, life-long memory. He was selected to represent the Senators at the 1993 All-Star game in which he scored a goal.
And second, we are pleased to close our draft with a versatile Finnish winger, capable of playing both a scoring and checking role, although he won't see any top-line minutes with our team. He's a great leader though, and has been money for his country at many World Championships and other international tournaments, from Vantaa, Finland...
Originally Posted by Legends of Hockey Growing up in Finland, Ville Peltonen naturally idolized the most readily available icon of his community: former Oiler great Jari Kurri. It was Kurri and Peltonen's father that had the strongest impact on the development of his career in hockey.
Over the years since he first hit the ice, Peltonen's focus has been directed more towards playing international hockey than skating in the NHL, although the National League did maintain a bit more presence in his life during the later stages of his career.
He first made a real name for himself while skating for HIFK Helsinki in the Finish League. He also led the Swedish Elite League in scoring during the 1997-98 campaign. But the Finnish National Team always got the nod when it came to meaningful tournaments. Peltonen represented his country in the 1994 and 1998 Olympic Winter Games and joined in seven consecutive World Championships (1994-2000) and before returning to the international stage at the 2003 Worlds.
Between all of the international outings, Peltonen did manage to pop up in the NHL from time to time. He got his start with the San Jose Sharks where he played 31 games in 1995-96. He completed the year, however, with the Kansas City Blades of the IHL. The following year, he made it back to the Shark Tank where he put in another 21 big-league games before being dispatched to the Kentucky Thoroughbreds of the AHL where he rounded out the season.
Peltonen then returned to Finland for a year before joining the expansion Nashville Predators for the start of the 1998-99 campaign. He got off to a decent start, scoring ten points in his first 14 games. But a serious shoulder separation put him out of action for the remainder of the year.
He bounced back the following season, however, playing his first complete NHL campaign to date. By season's end, he had tallied personal-best six goals and 22 assists. Since that time, Peltonen has appeared in only 23 Pedators outings, having spent the remainder of the 2000-01 season with Milwaukee of the IHL. In 2001-02, Peltonen opted to return overseas signing with Jokerit Helsinki in Finland.
In the summer of 2006, Peltonen was signed by the Florida Panthers.
The pivot from the Kid Line at the '72 Summit Series who went on to become the Soviet League's top scorer in 1974 joins goaltender Hrudey as players who have already signed a contract with the Dawson City Nuggets.
Keep those top-10 next-best lists coming (today!).
Hart and Vezina trophy winner Jose Theodore joins Kelly Hrudey in net for the Nuggets of Dawson City. Together they form a formidible duo at this level of competition, providing longevity (Hrudey's 271 wins plus 36 playoff victories) and peak (Theo's fantastic 2002). Will a third goalie join them on the team? Only time will tell.
Keep those top-10 next-best lists coming (today!).
The Memorial Cup top scoring defenseman who became a leading Calder trophy contender and one-time NHL captain, developed into "a rugged stay-at-home defenceman who could also provide crisp outlet passes to his forwards", bringing 14-year veteran leadership to the blueline of the Dawson City Nuggets after signing a contract today.
A couple more may or may not be signed prior to training camp, as two members of the managerial team are still expected to finish submitting their input.
The IIHF HOFer 10-year captain of the Czechoslovakian national team, an 'aggressive defender' who as a three-time Olympic bronze medalist defenseman scored an impressive 35 goals in 114 international matches between 1952-64, was named best defenseman at the 1955 world championships, and was a longtime defensive partner of Frantisek Tikal, today signs with the Nuggets of Dawson City and becomes a leading candidate for one of the captaincy positions.
"...The captains of both teams, back Karel Gut and forward Vseolod Bobrov,are exchanging flowers and flags before the first official match against the Soviet Union at the Prague’s Štvanice island in January 1957. This match preceded the World Championship that for the first time was played in Moscow at that time still at an open stadium..."
VI, some clarification on what happens next... I have challenged Michigan. Mighigan never responded to my challenge and challenged Prague, who I think is now a ghost team.
Apparently Mighigan doesn't want a piece of Regina. Should we consider my challenge declined, his Prague challenge accepted, and put Regina up against Dawson? Dawson would be the only "free" team for me to challenge.

RULES: Players with a +3 at the end of the day make the team. Each GM is entitled to one and only one +1 or -1 per player (unlimited number of players can be given a +1 or -1, just don't try to give +/-2 or +/100, etc.). And with every +1 or -1 YOU ARE TO STATE A REASON. (even if the reason amounts to 'agree with what he said')
