The Belleville Bulls will take a gritty winger who was fantastic in his own end.

LW - Rob Zamuner
I object to this pick. Any selection of Rob Zamuner has to be accompanied by a joke about the 1998 Olympics.

I didn't even know this 300 game minimum existed, but, since it does, Doughty cannot be drafted. We know better next draft, but we can't change the rules when the teams are already half done.

Question:

Shorty Green played his first season of Sr. A in 1916-17. Does that count as professional hockey for the era requirements?

Whether he deserved it or not, at this point in the draft...he may very well be the best pure defensive forward available..or at the very least at left wing.

I remember trying to trade Rob Zamuner for a 7th round pick in NHL 2005, and getting rejected.

You were here posting and had the chance to object earlier. Doughty's eligibile; your choices are to give up a drafted player for him, or decline. Since you stated he was "getting to the top" of your D-men list, I am assuming you're fine.

Literally no, because it's not pro, but the rule should really be "senior", not "pro". I don't think junior accomplishments typically add to a player's legacy, but minor league and Senior hockey achievements (particularly before expansion) do, and the point of the "pro" distinction was really to say "hockey that added to the player's legacy" - which Senior A generally does, or at least could.

I would be open to a reinterpretation of this rule retroactive to the start of this MLD, as long as no one vehemently disagrees. It just makes sense.

Allison is 13.56% better offensively.

Screw it, I started this Doughty mess last year and I'll continue it. I'll offer up Keith Brown for him.

C Michal Pivonka



2x Top 10 SHG(4, 10)
3x Top 24 Assists(13, 16, 24)
9th in AS/G, 95-96
SH TOI/G(89 to 96): 3, 5, 3, 3, 5, 3, 5
21st in NHL in assists during 7 year peak(89 to 96), everyone in top 33 already selected

Quote:
Michal Pivonka first caught the attention of NHL scouts as a result of his standout performance at the 1983 European Junior Championships where he was named to the tournaments all-star team. He kept up his stellar play at World Junior tournaments in 1985 and 1986, winning a gold medal in the latter outing.

He was selected 59th overall in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft by the Washington Capitals. Pivonka expressed a strong interest in defecting to the NHL but insisted on completing his required military service before making the jump.

He joined the Caps in 1986-87 and filled an important void created by the retirement of Bengt Gustafsson. Pivonka centred a line between Bobby Gould and Gatean Duchesne, making a good impression from the start with his strong skating, excellent passing, and willingness to play physically.

Pivonka remained as a fixture with the Caps for 12 seasons. By the early nineties, fellow countryman Petr Bondra joined the club, uniting with Pivonka to make an effective offensive duo. In tandem, they raised each other's game with Pivonka scoring a career- high 80 points in 80 games during the 1991-92 campaign.

Quote:
Michal Pivonka is often the forgotten man in the list of Caps greats. He was over-shadowed by Gartner, Carpenter, Hunter, Iafrate, Langway and Bondra, but few players have done more for the franchise. A top defensive centerman, Pivonka contributed in all aspects of the game and deserves most of the credit for making Peter Bondra the offensive force he became. Forced to retire due to debilitating injuries, Pivonka faded from the scene but won't soon be forgotten.

Quote:
It seems that at times Bondra will do anything to get a goal and he has worked very well with center Michal Pivonka during his entire career in Washington. Pivonka knows how to feed Bondra perfectly, assisting on 60 percent of Bondra's goals...

Michal Pivonka, 20, star of the Czech national team, was first approached by Washington scout Jack Button.

Doughty might not exactly fit my team dynamic, but I'm definitely going to have one of the best puck moving defensive corps in the draft with Wilson, Smith, Dorey, Johnsson, and hopefully Doughty.

Just clarifying, the era requirements can be met by anyone on our team, not just our starting roster?

Based on other players comments and his recognition at times, I think it's a fair statement.

Blatant trip, consensus = takes to many arbitrary penalties = negative factor

Only kidding, I like the pick to be honest, he's someone I think fits well with Krusha and I would've considered him in a later round.

I'd say this is pretty much a givem, otherwise players from the pre-pro era could never count for anything.

I was on my phone, and was only kind of paying attention. I assumed people would make the right choice and not change the rules.


I will give up my pick that is on the clock.... and select Drew Doughty, who is apparently available now.

True.

Please don't be difficult. I know you realize how unfair it would be to allow this. I already said that just declaring Doughty available would be the least desirable of scenarios, as it just allows whoever is fortunate enough to be picking next, to take him. You could have had him, as long as no one else expressed that they would have taken him earlier had he been available at the time. Clearly, at least two GMs feel that way, so he'll be going to one of them.

Reen's bid of Brad Stuart is in the lead.

Does anyone have any idea how VI managed to convince HHH to take Rudy Migay at 994th in the ATD? Or, why he chose to pimp Migay over Hinky Harris?
