Haha, no worries. I had to double check myself to make sure. That would have been the steal of the century.

Texas selects 6'4 215 lbs mobile defenseman Randy Gregg, third all-time in NHL playoff plus-minus (+71 in 137 post-season contests, +0.52/GP) and that after five Stanley Cup championships as a steady eddie on the dynasty team. He played in Canada Cup 1984 and he captained the amateur-only Olympic team in 1980 just after captaining his CIAU team to two national championships, as 1979 university player of the year, scoring against Tretiak in a 6-4 Olympic loss.



Quote:
...an ultra-calm and stable defensive presence and master of the transition game with a good first pass and lethal wrist shot
Quote:
...was not a proactively rugged player, which given his size was guaranteed to drive a segment of the fan base nuts. For one thing he eschewed fighting entirely, saying "I never fought in hockey because I couldn’t stand the thought of anybody, especially my kids, seeing me lose it, seeing me that far out of control ... My attitude toward fighting was, if you win you’ve got sore hands, if you lose you’ve got a sore face!" But Gregg used his size to advantage in other ways, positioning himself perfectly, getting in the way of any thrust towards goal, using his reach, a quick stick and his oversized feet to deflect pucks out of the danger area. He could be exposed on a one-on-one against a fleet opponent, but had a way of forcing them to go way wide into the corner where the strong goaltending tandem of Fuhr and Moog could easily handle bad angle shots. He possessed a safe and sure first pass, and wasn’t beyond jumping into the rush when the situation presented itself

With our 2nd pick in the MLD, the Carolina Hurricanes are proud to select goalie Pete Peeters.



Out of Edmonton Alberta Peeters is a welcome addition to our team. The 1983 Vezina Trophy winner had 8 shutouts in a season where over half the teams in the league had 300 + goals. He also was a 3-time all-star (1980,1981, and 1983).

More on Peeters can be found at this link:

chaos is skipped then?

The Swamp Devils select Miikka Kiprusoff, G.

Kiprusoff might have the best peak of any goalie in the MLD - a Vezina finalist 3 straight seasons including 1 win, 3rd and 4th in Hart voting, and a trip to the Cup finals.

-In 03-04, he was 2nd in Vezina voting and 4th in Hart voting, despite playing only 38 games. He led the league in save % (.933) and GAA (1.69), and had a 24-10-4 record. The other goalies on the team combined for an 18-23-3 record, before Kiprusoff took over the starting job. Overall, the team's save % was .919 and team GAA was 2.04, a far cry from Kiprusoff’s personal statistics.

(lockout year)

-In 05-06, he was 1st in Vezina voting in a landslide (25 first place votes, 140 points. 2nd place Brodeur had 2 first place votes, 48 points.). He was also a solid 3rd in Hart voting.

-06-07: 3rd (tied) in Vezina voting

Vezina record:
1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 8th (not including this season, where he’s likely to get another top 10 finish)

Hart record: 3rd, 4th

-Kiprusoff is a workhouse, finishing Top 4 in minutes played by a goalie every year since 05-06 (1, 1, 3, 3, 4).

While Kiprusoff doesn't have a Cup, he's been a good playoff performer:


-In the 03-04 playoffs, Kiprusoff sported a .928 save % and a 1.85 GAA along with 5 shutouts in taking his team to within 1 game of winning the Stanley Cup.

-Kiprusoff’s career save % rises from .914 in the regular season to .921 in the playoffs and his career GAA decreases from 2.44 to 2.32 in the playoffs.

Records:
-Modern-day NHL record; lowest goals against average, single-season - 1.69 GAA in 2003–04
-Calgary Flames franchise record; most shutouts, single-season - 10 in 2005–06
-Calgary Flames franchise record; most wins, single-season - 45 in 2008–09 (surpassed own record of 42 wins in 2005–06)
-Calgary Flames franchise record; most games played, single-season - 76 in 2007–08 and 2008–09 (surpassed own record of 74 games in 2005–06 and 2006–07)
-Calgary Flames franchise record; most shutouts, all-time - 32


Here is an incredibly flattering picture of the Finnish superstar:

I'm glad we could get Peeters as well. 8 Shutouts during the 1980's in a season is something special. Also good choice by the Swamp Devils on Kiprusoff. Really proud of our first 2 picks here and enjoying doing this.

Sorry this one took so long. I too have been busy with exams- had one this morning and studying for them hasn't left me with much time for hockey research.

The Toronto Marlies are happy to select one of the best peak defencemen in the MLD, with a 1st and a 3rd in defenceman in scoring in the 1950s as well as good two-way and all-around ability, along with a 2nd team AST.- Hy Buller

I looked at Hy Buller, who is apparently the prototypical MLD defenseman. And I just couldn't get over the fact that he only played 2 full NHL seasons in his career. Duncan Keith has definitely had a better NHL career so far than Buller. What do we make of Buller's many years as a star in the AHL during the O6 era?

Also, is he physical or isn't he? His legendsofhockey profile says he can deliver jolting body checks, but his Pelletier profile compares him to Quackenbush's Lady Byng style of play. Edit: His PIM totals indicate that legendsofhockey is probably right.

Duncan Keith has an arguement, certainly. Though Buller only played 2 seasons, he did have a partial season that was pretty solid at a 12th in defenceman scoring. At this point though, I'll usually take the super peak guys over guys who played for longer but didn't really do anything that special. Buller was one of the few remaining defencemean with an AST, and his all-around play made him worth taking in my mind.

Not sure what to make of those stars. He was really dominant down there, but then this is the AHL..I leave that to people's disrection.

I'm inclined, with the PIM totals, to believe LOH more. The Pelletier Quackenbush comparison mainly talks about their styles of offense and defense more- at the beginning is the only real comparison about toughness, talking about Buller's not being aggressive and Buller not cracking opposition. That suggests to me Buller wasn't a guy that dished it out that frequently or ran around looking to hit, but he wasn't soft, could dish out after taking it, could make some good hits and finish his checks, and "played with a chip on his shoulder"

The Eagles draft Alex Shibicky.



Goals

1937-38 NHL 17 (10)
1938-39 NHL 24 (2)
1941-42 NHL 20 (7)

Assists

1939-40 NHL 21 (6)

Quote:
The highlights of his career were when the Rangers split the first four games of the 1940 Stanley Cup finals against the Toronto Maple Leafs, then won the next two games and the championship. Shibicky played those last two games on a broken right ankle.

"We had the best skating team," he was quoted as saying by The Chicago Tribune last year. "We had the best fundamental team. When you're like that, you're loose as a goose. You play a lot better. You think a lot better. We scored goals that you don't even dream about on our line."

His stats are really interesting. 3 Top 10s in goals, 1 Top 10 in assists (in a different year), 0 top 10s in points.

In 38-39, he had 24-9-33 and in 39-40, he flipped it with 11-21-32.

This tells me that he's versatile, though not necessarily the best offensive producer. Looks like he focuses on goal scoring or playmaking in a given season, but doesn't do both at a high level at the same time.

He also has some interesting playoff stats, a passer in their cup win but a leading goal scorer in three of the Rangers' other postseasons:

- Shibicky was tied for 3rd in points in the Rangers 1940 Stanley Cup triumph (7 assists and 2 goals in 11 games).
- Shibicky led the Rangers in goals with 3 goals in 7 games in '39 playoffs.
- Shibicky tied the lead in team goals in '38 (2 in 3 games) and '42 (3 in 6 games) playoffs.

Question: Why is he listed as a right winger if he was the left winger for most of his career on the Bread Line? Should I play him on the left side?

He is a left winger. Perhaps he was listed some places as a RW because he might have played that position late in his career? *shrug* All references to his longstanding role on the Bread Line, going back to even his pre-NHL days, has him as the left wing to the Colville brothers.

I was hoping to get Jaroslav Holik for our 4th line - I love his attitude and underrated goal scoring - but that's just greedy. Hell, I briefly considered him for my ATD 4th line to play with brother Jiri.

I'm not sure what I think of him here in a bigger role. He did lead the Czech league in scoring once in the late 60s, but he didn't have all that big a role on the national team (compared to some peers) and wasn't really a factor in Golden Stick voting. His Czech league stats are very good, but I have to wonder if he's the case of a guy who might be too slow to play in the big leagues. (Or is it just on the bigger international ice which the MLD isn't using?)

Here's an example of Holik's attitude in the 1969 USSR/CSSR games. Obviously, there are no politics in the MLD, but I think the feistiness and fearlessness carry over:

Quote:
Playing with unprecedented national fervour, Team CSSR outhustled the Soviets 2-0 on March 21 and 4-3 one week later in the return game. In the footage from game one, after defenceman Jan Suchy had given CSSR a 1-0-lead, one can see how Jaroslav Holik taunts Soviet goaltender XX after the goal, poking his stick repeatedly at xx’s face, calling him a “bloody communist”. Holik even put hockey tape over the Czechoslovak crest on his jersey, covering the star that symbolized the country’s allegiance to the Warsaw Pact.
http://www.iihf.com/iihf-home/the-ii.../story-18.html

Markov is a solid all-round guy - pretty good but not great at both ends of the ice. Prototypical MLD defenseman.
