ATD 2014 Draft Thread II

The draft will last 25 rounds. You must draft 2 goalies, 6 defensemen, 12 forwards, a coach and 4 extra picks.

Now on a 8 hour clock.

2). The time windows will be tight but reasonable.
  • 12 hour clock for the first two rounds, (sending a shortlist to another GM highly encouraged here)
  • then 10 hour clock for rounds 3-6,
  • then 8 hour clock for rounds 7-14,
  • then 6 hour clock for rounds 15-20,
  • then 4 hour clock for rounds 21-25
One hour time window deduction for each skipped pick (two hour deduction for missing a 12 hour clock - leave a list), with a minimum 4 hour clock guaranteed regardless of deductions.

3). Trades - No trades!
  • Swapping your entire set of draft picks with another GM before either of you has made a single pick is allowed, however.
4). ADD/DROPS - At the conclusion of the draft, there will be a 7 day period for add/drops. All add/drops must be 1-for-1. Dropped players will NOT be eligible to be added by other teams.

5). At the conclusion of the draft, there will be a 10 day period for lineup assassinations. Assassinations will be divided by division.

6). Regular season rankings MUST BE VOTED ON by at least one GM (if the team is co-GM'd) per team. The penalty if not done is a potential lowering in the standings because each GM will rank his own team first. Co-GMs who both vote each get half a vote for the regular season rankings in their own division.

GMs who vote in every round of the playoffs will get preference of their draft positions in the following draft.

7). All Teams make the playoffs. The conferences will be divided into two divisions of 7 each, with the regular season divisional winner getting a 1st round bye in the playoffs. The first round of the playoffs will feature three intra-divisional matchups in each division, after which the remaining teams will compete in divisional semifinals (standard high vs. low seed) and divisional finals rounds. Winners of the divisions will meet in the conference finals, and winners of the conference will meet in the draft finals.

8). NO MENTIONING UNDRAFTED PLAYERS!!!

9). PM the next team after you have made your pick. THIS IS NOT OPTIONAL!

Good pick with Devlecchio there Mark. I read somewhere that he was good defensively, but can't remember where. I hope you can find something on it.

I think Delvecchio's drop was deserved, but this is a good place for him.

And yes, he was a strong defensive player. I thought of him briefly, but decided I preferred Toe Blake's grit.

Blake was a nice pick, I was likely going to take him with my upcoming pick to play with Mario. Now I have no idea who I am going to take or even what position.

IMO, Blake's value increased quite a bit after overpass showed last time that he was a gritty, digging player, who was strong both ways. I think we all assumed that he probably was that type of player, but overpass's work really confirmed it.

Delvecchio was the perfect center for a puck-dominant winger like Bobby Hull, there goes my entire plan with Ullman and Delvecchio gone.

Looks like I scooped you both times with he and Seibert, nothing personal but with you in my division I can't say i'm upset

I think one thing that needs to be mentioned is how often Delvecchio Was not on Gordie Howes line. His legacy gets laced with "well he played with Howe" etc...but as Overpass showed in the HOH top Centre thread Delvecchio was not a product of Howe.

Eh, he was on Howe's line for the large majority of his career, but he did have a few strong seasons without Howe as a regular even strength linemate (including the one season he was actually a 2nd Team AS C)

Edit: Though I must say, I am finding it ironic that you are happily using Delvecchio at LW after getting on me for using Sid Abel at LW last year, when Abel spent more time at LW than Delvecchio did.

That implies that the Ducks were better off, or just as good without Pronger, which definitely wasn't the case. That Ducks team went 16-5 in those playoffs. They were dominant.
I dont think they were better off without Pronger but he wasnt going to win the smythe being out two games which his team won certainly not when he missed those games because of suspensions for trying to open up skulls with his elbow.

Either that, or it overrates him because his offensive explosion happened when Bobby Orr came to Boston, not to mention playing with Esposito on Boston's dominant PP.

Bucyk did have incredible longevity as a first line player, though. (And was a beast in corners without taking penalties)

Excellent pick, but those offensive numbers are a bit misleading.

Unfortunately for myself and everyone else Bucyk was the last guy on the short list I made last night for work today.

I'll probably be at work another couple hours at least, then have to commute home in a snowy mess, then have to research a pick. So best case scenario, I pick in about 4 hours.

I think there's a tradeoff; some of the work done last year also illuminated possible issues with Blake's offense. These are his VsX scores in chronological order:

75, 107, 84, 73, 83, 82, 77, 92, 96, 79

The bolded are 1944-45 and onwards, when Blake experienced a "second peak" in his thirties in a war-depleted league playing on a line with a peaking Maurice Richard. These results can probably be thrown out, and the first seven years of his peak taken to get a truer accounting of his 7-season VsX totals (luckily he had seven peak seasons before things start to look distorted). The 77 is from 1943-44, but for the sake of not splitting hairs and because it is close to his old baseline, we'll just assume it is undistorted. Using the non-bolded years of the above, Blake's 7-season VsX score is 83.2, a good bit lower than the 92.6 that he has without adjustment. Taking the long view on Blake, he looks like a guy who produced at around the 80% benchmark consistently, with a one-time spike in his career year.

Yes, sadly the top of the VsX table for LWs is littered with pretty obvious distortions.

I don't think the "issues" with Blake's offense are new - everyone knows he played through the war when other players weren't in the league. I completely agree with throwing out his 1944-45 year when the Punch Line roflstomped the war-depleted league in the regular season. I do not think we should just throw out 1945-46 entirely, however - most (not all) of the league was back from the war.

I get that there was a Maurice Richard factor involved in 1945-46, but if we are going to throw it out entirely because of linemates, we need to start looking at knocking Dickie Moore and others down.

Basically, I think that 83.2 (which is what you get if you pretend Blake retires after 1944) is a bit too low, but is a lot closer to his true value than the 92.6 raw VsX score (which would have him as the 4th best offensive LW of all-time, which nobody believed to begin with).

Heh, yes. Basically, every LW in the table Billy listed could be argued to have his numbers inflated by his linemates, playing through WW2, and/or team situation, other than Bobby Hull, Alex Ovechkin, and Frank Mahovlich.

(That's why I questioned throwing out Toe Blake's 1945-46 season entirely, even if I agree with throwing out his 1944-45)

It is not necessary to treat Blake's 1945-46 season as though it didn't happen in order to ignore it for VsX purposes. The question is whether we think he was legitimately performing above his already established baseline (a tick below 80%), or whether the scoring spike was due to some improvement in his play. I think it's entirely possible that Blake had a good season that year, up to his normal standard, but unlikely that his scoring totals that year represent a true spike in performance.

Take his normal baseline and add it into the VsX formula in place of his 7th best season, and it doesn't move the needle much, and that is giving him the benefit of the doubt for the 1943-44 score. Basically, I think Blake's later performance is legitimate in that it adds meaningfully to his longevity (ten seasons as an impact player is strong for his generation), but I think it can be essentially ignored when calculating his peak offensive value because he already has a seven-year peak we can use.

Out of curiosity, what is the relevance of your second asterisk?

I'd also like to hear peoples thoughts comparing Bentley, Blake, and Bucyk. I had a pretty difficult time differentiating the three when it was my turn to draft. They all possess several advantageous intangibles, but I went with Bentley who was known as a tenacious back-checker (seems like him and Blake are very similar, Blake playing a rougher, grittier style of hockey.

That was included in the original VsX table that I copied the numbers from. I'm not sure the exact details, but I think it was that there was some belief that the scorekeepers in Chicago were very liberal in rewarding assist totals during the late 1940s. I think there was an article about it somewhere. Sturm created the table, so I think he would know.

It's possible that Blake's 1945-46 statistics are majority distorted like his 1944-45 ones. But I think it's just as possible that it was a legitimate late career spike year for him, similar to how his Hart year was an early career spike year (though not as good as his Hart year obviously).

In 1944-45, the Punch Line finished 1-2-3 in scoring, way above everyone else, Blake was the third, and Lach and Richard finished 1-2 in Hart voting.

But in 1945-46 (after most but not all players returned from the War), Blake actually led the Montreal Canadiens in scoring - 50 points for Blake, 48 for Richard, 47 for Lach. All 3 members played all 50 games: http://www.hockey-reference.com/teams/MTL/1946.html. Hard to tell anything from Hart voting, as only Montreal's goalie finished in the top 5, and we don't have anything past that for that year.

I think Bentley and Blake are very close - Bentley was faster and has somewhat better regular season stats, I believe, even after adjusting for distortions. Blake was grittier, a better leader, and has an outstanding playoff resume. (Bentley's playoff resume is basically an "incomplete," since unfortunately, he was stuck on a crappy Chicago team for his career). Both were strong two-way players (we already knew this about Bentley; I think Blake's two-way game wasn't really explored until last draft).

Bentley is LW/C eligible, which gives you useful versatility this early in the draft.

I think Bucyk is a clear step down from them as an overall player. Keeping in mind that Bucyk is one of those long-career, relatively low peak guys that others might rate higher than me.

But Bucyk has some specialized skills (body checking, winning battles in corners, overall physicality without taking penalties) that can be very useful in the ATD.

Edit: I think ordering this group of LWs will be a very interesting part of the HOH Top Wingers project, if that ever happens.

I think his offense is a bit overstated by vsx for obvious reasons but his longevity is awesome and being able to be physical without the drawbacks of doing so are very nice to haves as well..

Even straight up removing some seasons for vsx he will be stronger than many left wingers all around.
