Staal continued to light the lamp in the 2006 playoffs scoring many timely goals including seven power play goals. Staal's youthful enthusiasm and relentless forechecking helped the Carolina Hurricanes win their first Stanley Cup in franchise history.

Eric loved every second of it... From the moment he joined the Canes, Eric had been compared to Ron Francis, both for his ability and team-first attitude.

Carolina hardly looked like a Cup contender when the postseason began. The Canes dropped their first two games to the Montreal Canadiens, surrendering six goals in the each contest. Eric made his first significant contribution in game 3, scoring in overtime for a 2-1 victory. Energized by the win, Carolina swept the next three games to set up a showdown with the New Jersey Devils. Again, Eric netted the biggest goal of the series. After the Canes breezed to a 6-0 win in Game 1, Scott Gomez appeared to give the Devils a victory two nights later with a late third-period goal. Eric stole New Jersey's thunder, however, tying the contest with three seconds left. The series against the Sabres was a seven-game rollercoaster ride with six contests decided by a single goal. Eric registered a point in each of the first five games, running his franchise-record scoring streak to 15 games. It was the NHL’s longest since Pavel Bure’s 16-gamer in 1994... Eric answered with two goals and an assist against the Oilers in Game 5, but Carolina lost on its home ice in OT... Ward was the choice for Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP for his stellar play in goal, but Eric’s performance was not overlooked. With nine goals and 19 assists, he led the NHL in postseason scoring.

Though his scoring is down a bit, he has been feisty and intense, two of his trademark qualities. And while Brind'Amour still wears the captain’s C in Carolina, Eric has been able to rally the team with his attitude and work ethic. To veterans on the Canes, he might seem like a little brother in years. But in terms of production and energy, he's Carolina's main man.

Though he’s big and physical, he is at his best in open ice when he can use his speed, vision and stickhandling skills to his advantage. While Eric likes to control the puck, he knows how to create space for himself when he doesn’t have it. This, combined with a quick, accurate shot, makes him a dangerous goal scorer. Eric, however, is most dangerous as a playmaker. He is a great passer who regularly sets up teammates with good scoring chances.

Eric is the rare young player who understands his responsibilities on both ends of the ice. While not a grinder, he’s more than willing to mix it up in the corners. Thanks to his long reach and quick hands, he’s also excellent on faceoffs. Not surprisingly, Eric is usually on the ice with the game on the line and his team up by a goal. Due to his hard work off the ice, Eric thrives the more ice time he gets. He’s particularly effective in the third period. His work ethic and production have earned the respect of his teammates and make him a .

He is highly creative and should enjoy a long prosperous career playing at a top level in the NHL.

Base on the reactions on the Belak pick and the Belak pick itself, I do not think people are particularly eager to do it, nor do they desire to do it or see much point in doing it. Just my perceptionms though; could be wrong I suppose.

I'm personally, not too eager to do such a thing.

Let's end it at the originally scheduled date. I think a lot of us have been eager to start arguing.

I'd be up for that, but I think the majority probably wouldn't be.

I support this idea even if it is only a few GMs. That way everyone is happy. We determine a rough top 1000 and finish the draft by Christmas

Nah, your posts are just go unnoticed without that beautiful baby blue highlighting your name.

Anyways, might not be the "best players available", but whatever. I want my depth players to be good character guys, that I like. I know there are others with much better accomplishments, but these are two guys that I feel should probably be in a MLD in some capacity, so yeah.

C Cliff Ronning
and G Richard Brodeur (heh, I can have Brodeur replace Brodeur, if heaven forbid, Marty goes down!)

i say 'nay' (the Belak thing took the wind out of my sails)

and even one nay should veto it: changing rules in the middle of a game is never a good idea

look guys, why not just have a quickie draft AFTER the playoffs is all done

or....

how about everyone (everyone who wants to) submit three picks via PM when doing regular season voting and the results will be tallied and posted with the standings, multiple vote players making the final bottom-of-the-top-1000 list and those that got one vote will be listed and can be argued for or against.

The Cairo Desert Dogs round out their roster by selecting RW Bill "Bulldog" Fairbairnan a second team all-star guy who fills in very well as a backup, G Roland Melanson

For the record, I'm on board with this idea and not on board with extending the draft by two rounds.

or we could just have a free agency thread AFTER the draft is finished, like has been done after some minor league drafts before

that way if you have 2 or 3 guys you think deserving of selection but weren't, you could post it there; if you have 10 you can post 10; if you have none then post none

A no thanks from me on the extra two rounds. We've been at this for almost two months now. We've had a hard enough time keeping the attention of all the GMs as it is. Adding two more rounds is only going to make things worse. The timed part of the draft is done, and now we just need to make up skipped picks from the following GMs:

*papershoes: 7 picks (Rounds 24-30). paper is well aware, but he hasn't had a chance to make up the picks.
*Reds4Life: 4 picks. He asked to be skipped earlier.
*chaosrevolver: 2 picks.

Please make up the picks at the earliest convenience.

That year he was the sensation of the league, scoring in twelve consecutive games and finishing second only to Marty Walsh for the scoring leadership.

If we extend the draft by 2 more rounds, I'm doing zero research for them and going 100% homer, since I'll just assume these additional picks will have zero effect on how the main team does.

You may take that as a "nay" if you wish.

You know what the worst part about that pick is? Never did I once realize I was putting the Niedermayer brothers on the team team. Obviously I knew I had Scott, and knew I was going after Rob, but in my mind I kept them as seperate entities.

Very happy to have Rob, though. I've considered bringing him up to the ATD a couple times now, but his track record on paper probably hasn't justified it well enough. From what I've seen of him, though, he's an awesome asset to have. Pahlsson's a bit better defensively as him, but really if Pahlsson didn't have the Selke finishes(and the should-be win, stupid voting system), I wouldn't see too much difference between them. Rob also brings a lot of leadership and versatility(can play all three forward positions), which is very nice for a defensive forward minor leaguer. Glad to have Potvin as well. The ATD's basically half Canuck fans and half Leaf fans, and I already got the Canuck vote with Luongo, so I figured I'd grab Potvin, who I'm sure still has a soft spot in the hearts of some Leafs fans. Seriously, though, Potvin was a very good goaltender throughout the 90s, and he was probably the last goalie picked, so I figure he's close to the best I could get.
