I'd just like to point out that Claus was drafter higher than Russell.

Wow, how'd my determination drop from 14 to 7, I thought that was relatively fixed value? Otherwise small marginal improvements in most areas. Gonna struggle to make the NHL as a defenseman who can't check.

November 2nd 2009
Claus Merkwurdigliebe and David Alexander have re-upped with Dusseldorf for one year each. Alexander will earn 256k and Merkwurdigliebe will earn $99,500.00 (couldn’t give you that extra 500?) Both players have NHL release clauses.

Alright here's what ended up happening to everyone. I lost some stats on some of the players when they retired but they were all scrubs anyways :-p Icicles, any suggestions on maintaining their stats when they retire? Also, this is gonna be kind of brief because I want to start the new game.

David Alexander: Alexander has played 16 NHL seasons to date with eight teams. His longest stretch was with the Oilers for 4 1/2 seasons. In 1210 NHL games he had 565 points (247g 318a) and was an acceptable 2nd/3rd line tweener and valuable player. He topped out at 58 points but broke the 20 goal and 50 point barriers six times each. He was the most traded player, being shipped out 5 times, and was the next closest player to touching the cup, losing in the SCF in 21/22 and 25/26. Alexander continued to be a key player for Germany in International play scoring 27g-27a-54 pts in 74 games played.

Cap Dempsey: This one really Bugged me. He put up solid statistics in the AHL for about five years, never scoring less than 32 points in an AHL season playing in Albany with Duddy. He just never really got a fair shake. He had a cup of coffee in his second professional season, playing 6 games for the Canes and putting up 1 assist. He never played another NHL game. He stuck to his guns in the AHL for a few years, continuing to put up acceptable totals but was getting bouced around the feeder league. He finally bailed to Europe and put up points in the upper 20's to a peak of 49 in 50 game seasons in Russian and Swedish Elite Leagues. I felt bad that Cap never really got a fair shake.

Thomas Duddy: Despite being the #1 Pick in the 2007 NHL entry draft Duddy never played a game for the Penguins. He was traded to the Avalanche who sent him to Albany of the AHL. He cut his teeth there for about five years putting up very good point totals, mostly in the 70s, but never getting a sniff at the NHL level. Finally the Avs brought him up and he put up points in the 40s,50s, and 60s in his first 3 seasons. His 4th season in the NHL was his best as he put up 77 points and broke the 35 goal plateau. He bounced around for 5 years after that from NHL team to NHL team putting up points in the 50s to 60s playing on various 2nd lines. He fell out of favor with NHL GMs for a year and went to the SEL for a year, tore it up, and came back to captain the Islanders for 3 years, again putting up points in the 70s range. Then he fell out of favor once again and just kid of disappeared. He probably never met his full potential, because he didn'tt play a lick of defense, but he had an acceptable NHL career. The bottom line was he was frustratingly inconcistent. Retired.

Trent Edwards:Bust. Bounced around the AHL for the majority of his career never topping 20 points in 80 AHL games. He played in the AHL for about 8 seasons and didn't get much ice time. He jumped over seas and bounced around on a yearly basis between the DEL, SEL, and KHL. His best statistical season saw him put up 10g+13a-23pts in the DEL with Hannover. He played once again in the AHL for the past couple of years and registered a whopping 3 pts in 68 games for Iowa two years ago. He is currently unemployed in 2026 and I expect him to retire shortly.

Claus Merkwurdiglebe: Bust. Never played an NHL game. Never stepped foot on North American ice again after leaving Boston College. He bounced around the DEL and other European leagues for the majority of his career. His best statistical season was 25 points (8g, 17a) for Berlin in the DEL. His glory days were clearly with Germany in the WJC. Retired.

Trucker: Bust. He played 2 NHL games for the bruins and didn't record a point. Then he bounced around between the German, Russian, and Czech 2nd leagues and never was even a .5 ppg player. Didn't play for Team USA in any international games. The only thing noteworthy about Trucker was the one season where he played with Taub, who launched 80 pucks off his fat ass and into the net. Retired.

Eric Taub: Taub had a very solid NHL career playing 18 NHL seasons for 4 teams, the most being with Nashville. (DET, TOR, NSH, VAN). In 1251 NHL games Taub scored 612 points (124g, 488a) while being a +113 in his career. Taub's best offensive seasons were 13g, 45a and 55pts. Taub was a two time all star, was the Calder Trophy runner up in 09/10 and was named to the NHL Rookie All Star Team in the same season. Taub was also a three time time NHL defensive player of the week, an NHL defensive player of the month, and a two time All Star. He also won the hardest shot competition both years he made the All Star Game. Most recently Taub finished 3rd in Norris voting. Taub's best hockey however was played on the international stage as he lead team USA to a Gold Medal at the World Championships in 2016 also winning a Bronze at the 2015 World Championship. He was named to the World Championships All Tournament Team in 2014 and 2016. In 49 international games he put up 32 points and was a +36 for the Americans. My favorite part of this player, given that I dislike the Leafs, was this: The Red Wings (who drafted Taub) traded him to the Leafs for Martin St. Louis. Taub played 17 games for the Leafs and then was waived and claimed by Nashville and tore it up once again. Then the Leafs signed him once again ten years later. He had one good Season for them and then the next year he tore his ACL and missed 3/4s of the season. The Leafs traded then him for two players who were young, former top 5 NHL picks, and they both busted hard!

Stevie Tornquist: It's arguable whether Taub or Tornquist was the second best player. Tornquist has played 17 NHL seasons for 4 teams, most with Nashville (NSH, ANA, FLA, TOR) In 1247 NHL games Tornquist racked up an impressive 611 points (143g,468a) for a defenseman. He was however a dissapointing -170 and was -40 or worse twice. His best statistical seasons saw him compile 14g, 42a and 52 points. Tornquist was also on Team USA for the 2014 Olympic Silver Medal. Tornquist finished 3rd in Calder voting in 09/10 and was named to the NHL Rookie All Star Team in the same season. Tornquist and Taub played together in Nashville for six years and were partners on the Predators top pairing. Tornquist's best hockey however might have come for team USA putting up 21 points in 31 games played with a +18 rating in international play.

Connor Vile: Far and away the best player of our prospects. He will be a 1st ballot HoFer. Vile has played 18 NHL seasons as of this writing for 6 different teams, the highest being the Jackets (CBJ, SJ, BOS, NYR, VAN, PHI). Vile never won any trophys but he finished 2nd in the Rocket Richard race in 2015/16 and third in the art ross race in the same year. He finished third in the art ross twice more in 2024/25 and 2025/26. Vile was a six time all star (3 east, 3 west), was voted as the fans' player of the year on his team 4 times, and was the NHL's offensive player of the week 3 times. He was the only prospect to hoist the cup, doing it in 2013/14 with the Blue Jackets, but never reached the Cup Finals again. He was a silver medalist for Team USA at the olympics in 2014, won two Golds at the WJCs. In 1254 games he tallied 1390 points (611g, 779a). He broke the 40 goal barrier 8 times, the 100 point barrier 5 times. His best statistical seasons saw him score 56 goals, 68 assists and 115 points. He couldn't maintain that stellar play at the national team level scoring 31 points in 37 games. Vile played with Taub in VAN for 3 seasons.

Some interesting notes around the NHL during the time period.
Kovalchuck dominated. He won 9 Art Rosses in a 14 year span and made 7 consecutive NHL first team All Star teams. He also won 7 Harts in the same time frame. He's sick nasty in this game.

The Rangers won the most cups in the time period (4).

Kovalchuck set a new record for career goals at 1137 but all of Gretzky's other goals, assists, and points records, both career and single season, remain intact.

No suggestions on stat retention other than simming to June 20th and taking screenshots in case someone retires.

Too bad Trucker was busty. I mean, a bust.

Wow that's a pretty solid career. I never thought I'd last 17 years as a defenseman who doesn't play defense. The best stat was a career -170

I simmed another year ahead and ornquist put up 62 pts and won the cup in 2026/27 . He also won the Norris making him the only prospect to win an award. Alexander also broke the 70 pt barrier and 30 goal barrier with the sharks in the same season.
