Atlanta Fan Dispersal Draft (Welcome sabreality + Marty Straka)

Interested Former Thrasher Fans Welcome To Post Here

So apparently there's going to be a draft for the rights of former Thrasher fan's future fandom...

Info can be found on the ATL Board. You can review the prospects and goings on.

Quote:
Each team gets a selection. The remaining 9 picks are to be selected by the 9 teams with the smallest post counts as listed on the HFBoards main page as of 5/31/2011

Each team was assigned a number between 1 and 29 based on their post counts on HFBoards as of 5/13/2011. Those numbers were....

1. Minnesota
2. St. Louis
3. Chicago
4. Dallas
5. Calgary
6. Nashville
7. Tampa
8. Carolina
9. Phoenix
10. Anaheim
11. Florida
12. Detroit
13. Colorado
14. Washington
15. Columbus
16. NY Islanders
17. Los Angeles
18. San Jose
19. Buffalo
20. Philadelphia
21. Pittsburgh
22. Ottawa
23. Vancouver
24. New Jersey
25. Edmonton
26. NY Rangers
27. Boston
28. Toronto
29. Montreal

Using the random number list generator on psychicscience.org/random.aspx I generated a string of numbers and matched them to the list above. Here is the result of the Draft lottery...

1. Dallas
2. Carolina
3. Boston
4. Los Angeles
5. Toronto
6. Montreal
7. NY Islanders
8. Edmonton
9. Detroit
10. Philadelphia
11. Tampa Bay
12. Phoenix
13. Vancouver
14. Calgary
15. Chicago
16. Columbus
17. Minnesota
18. Buffalo
19. New Jersey
20. Ottawa
21. St. Louis
22. Florida
23. Nashville
24. Colorado
25. San Jose
26. Washington
27. NY Rangers
28. Pittsburgh
29. Anaheim

And the supplemental round for the 9 smallest post counts....
30. Chicago
31. Minnesota
32. St. Louis
33. Calgary
34. Dallas
35. Nashville
36. Tampa Bay
37. Carolina
38. Phoenix

Draft Rules
1. No trading of draft picks
2. There is no time limit to make picks, but please do so in a timely manner
3. Picks will be updated on this thread as they are received. Picks are to be submittied via PM another predetermined method by a moderator/Global Mod/Admin frm the respective board. ANY NON-MOD SUBMITTED PICK WILL BE IGNORED.
4. Please have a special Draft Pick avatar ready for your selection. Think of it like giving your #1 pick a jersey at the draft.
5. Mods, feel free to contact your selection after you have officially submitted your pick.
6. Have fun!
Sooooo, like the T-Pups, we got jobbed in the lottery. You can look over the members there as we'll need to figure out who to select with our #17th selection. Gopher and I have stated we're looking for:

Quote:
1. Masochist -- This is a must for following Minnesota sports.
2. General apathy towards the rest of the NHL -- Lets be honest, we Minnesota fans don't care about the rest of you.
3. Fins -- Join our large Finnish contingent.
4. Embrace the unicorn -- Or GTFO.
5. Convictions or days spent in jail during protest of your chicken bleep ownership.
6. Posters who care about a college team more than your NHL team.
7. Someone who lived in Minnesota or even looked at it on a map...if the trade board is correct, we like our own.
8. A hatred of our most bitter rival...points if you can find one.
Feel free to add anything. Which posters we should try to select. Also, you can stop in on the ATL board if you want.

I think Juzmo is a perfect fit, hes Finnish so he will fit in and he's active.

Hes also a fan of Assat, so when we draft Armia this year he will be able to provide good info on him.

LMAO at this topic. What a genius idea.

EDIT: I would love to add some Southern twang to our message board. They/he(?) can spice things up and be our resident Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Some have said they have no particular preferences.

Welp, he fits the masochist bill. In fact, I'd consider him elite in that category. Might wanna consider trading up.

If I were drafted, would I be allowed to wear my Morten Andersen gear?

We'll force them to watch a Twins 1st round playoff series that follows a promising regular season. Then, we'll follow that up by a making them endure Timberwolves draft lottery then pry their eyes open and show them their ensuing season. Then, we'll diversify their skills (liberal arts-style) with a lesson in Minnesota Wild 1st round drafting. Bring Kleen-ex. After that, we'll fully crush any glimpse of hope they might've had by giving them a history lesson of the Minnesota Vikings.

After a comment like that... due to character issues, you have been completely removed from Minnesota's draft board.

It's the greatest World Series ever. Sucks that we lost, but it truly was great. As long as you're not bringing Kent Hrbek bobble-foot dolls, I'm cool.
