We did an NFL draft, and we're doing an MLB one; why not an NHL one?

Oh, and Sorry Clockwork, but he was with the Hawks, just like Gretzky was with the Blues.

I'm thinking 12 forwards, 6 defensemen and 2 goalies. 20 rounds. Maybe some more for depth?

Any thoughts?

12 forwards, 6 defenseman, 2 goalies sounds good.

There's only a few more hockey fans on the OM; jori, bronx33, mtnbroncofan, socal, herc, alec raenos and a few others. Oh wait, alec is a dickhead, not a puckhead. Sorry.

killericon, Clockwork Orange, JCMElway, Jori, and Breck Bronc.

Any thoughts on draft order? Random or choice?

I say random. You can draw this time since you're running the draft.

I have a question though, does this draft include only players who played in the NHL or are guys who competed in international competition fair game too? I only ask because there were some greats who played for the Soviet Red Army team who never played in the NHL (Tretiak, Kharlamov, etc.) and I'd like to establish whether they're eligible or not before the draft gets started.

Go up through the draft order 1-whatever and back down from whatever to 1. Say we have 12....the number 12 pick will pick two times one right after the other.

Ok, we have 9....use 9 instead of 12. :)

I am very proud to select Bobby Orr, D, Bruins. (yes, I know he spent a short time with the Blackhawks, but I prefer to pretend that never happened)

http://hockey.ballparks.com/NHL/BostonBruins/orr.gif

The Bruins began scouting this marvel when he was 12 years old....and for good reason. He would go on to revolutionize the game with his free wheeling style. He was the first defenseman to join the rush and jump into the play, which was easy for him since he had the God given speed to always get back in position defensively.

8 time Norris Trophy winner
3 time Hart Trophy winner
2 time Art Ross Trophy winner
2 time Conn Smythe Trophy winner
Winner of the Calder Trophy & Pearson Award
Holds the NHL record for +/- for a season with an unreal +124
Holds the record for points (139) and assists (102) in a season by a defenseman

He would have put every defenseman scoring mark far, far out of reach had it not been for knee injuries that cut his career short.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/6/66/GretzkyHockeyNews.jpg


Wayne Douglas Gretzky, OC (born January 26, 1961) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey player who is currently part-owner and head coach of the Phoenix Coyotes.

Born in Brantford, Ontario and nicknamed "The Great One," Total Hockey: The Official Encyclopedia of the NHL calls Gretzky "the greatest player of all time". [1] He is regarded as the best player of his era and has been called "the greatest hockey player ever" [2] by sportswriters, [3] [4] [5] players, [6] coaches, and fans. Along with his many awards and achievements, he is the only player to ever have his playing number, 99, officially retired across the entire National Hockey League.

Identified as a hockey prodigy at a very young age, Gretzky regularly played at a level far above his peers. He became a full professional at the age of 17 in the World Hockey Association, leading to a long career in the NHL. He set 40 regular-season records, 15 playoff records, 6 All-Star records, won four Stanley Cups with the Edmonton Oilers, and won 9 MVP awards and 10 scoring titles. He is the only player ever to total over 200 points in a season (a feat that he accomplished four times in his career). In addition, he tallied over 100 points a season for 15 NHL seasons, 13 of them consecutively.

I select Mario Lemieux, C, Pittsburgh Penguins with my first pick. Whether he was coming back from cancer, a bad back or playing in an era of terrible clutch and grab hockey, Super Mario put up tons of points and scored some beautiful goals.

Well, see, the first hockey game I ever paid attention to was the 2002 Olympic final; Paul Kariya scored the first goal of the game. Ever since I've loved him.

Oh, and you don't have to be sarcastic. Probably a 4th or 3rd liner in this league; but he might land on my 2nd line. Across from Iginla if I get him. Man, this planning ahead of time is getting out of hand.

Oh. Well, I am constantly mocked for liking him. Remember, I live in Canada, so I can walk up to any person in the street and say Paul Kariya and they will know exactly who I'm talking about.

I also love him because he was knocked unconscious by Scott Stevens...and then went back on the ice. My favourite story about him is this one though:
Halfway through the next season, Kariya was selected to play for Canada in the World Junior Championships in Germany, joining another much talked about junior, Eric Lindros. The two became friends during the tournament and Lindros, seeing that the smaller player was exhausted and sick after so many games, suggested Kariya take a break when he returned. Kariya did not heed the advice and became sicker. He collapsed just before an All-Star game and was diagnosed with mononucleosis. He returned after missing 12 games and led the Panthers to respectability. Kariya finished his final junior season with 132 points and was chosen the top junior player in Canada.

I don't know why you'd be mocked for liking Kariya. Doesn't seem farfetched to me. Now if it was Bertuzzi, then I might have some mocking in me.

I'd certainly hope most people would know who Paul Kariya was, Canada or not. That's probably really pushing it on my part though.

I go to a school and hang out with people who consider Kariya not aggressive enough. In Calgary, Iginla is considered the perfect player.

This is an easy one.

Gordie Howe, RW, Detroit Red Wings. Selection time, 7:20 AM CST.

Howe made his NHL debut in 1946 at the age of 18 playing right wing for the Detroit Red Wings. He quickly established himself as a great goal scorer and a gifted playmaker. Using his great physical strength, he was able to dominate the opposition in a career that spanned five decades. In a feat unsurpassed by any athlete, in any sport, Gordie Howe finished in the top five in scoring for twenty straight seasons. It was said that a Gordie Howe hat trick was a goal, an assist, and a fight.

Howe led Detroit to four Stanley Cups and to first place in regular season play for seven consecutive years (1948-9 to 1955-6), a feat never equalled in NHL History. During this time Howe and his linemates, Sid Abel and Ted Lindsay were known collectively as "The Production Line", both for their scoring and as an allusion to Detroit auto factories. The Red Wings were consistently contenders throughout the 1950s and early 1960s but began to slump in the late 60s.

After twenty-five years, a chronic wrist problem forced him to retire, and he took a job in the Red Wings front office. However, a year later he was offered a contract to play with the Houston Aeros of the newly formed World Hockey Association, who had also signed his sons Mark and Marty to contracts. Dissatisfied with not having any meaningful influence in the Red Wings' office, he underwent an operation to improve his wrist and make a return to hockey possible, and he led his new team to consecutive championships. In 1974, at the age of 46, Howe was selected as the WHA's most valuable player.

When the WHA folded in 1979 the Hartford Whalers joined the NHL and the 51-year-old Howe signed on for one final season playing in all 80 games of the schedule. He helped the Whalers make the playoffs with fifteen goals and was selected to the mid-season all-star game. Another milestone in a remarkable career was reached in 1997 when Howe played professional hockey in a sixth decade. He was signed to a one-game contract by the Detroit Vipers of the IHL and, almost 70 years old, made a stirring return to the ice for one shift.

His most productive seasons came during an era when scoring was difficult and checking was tight, yet Howe ranks third in NHL history with 1,850 total points, including 801 goals and 1,049 assists. Careerwise, when his goals and assists from both the NHL and the WHA regular seasons are combined, he ranks first in goals with 975. Howe would also become good friends with Wayne Gretzky, who had idolized Howe as a young player, and who would later break many of Howe's scoring records and milestones.

At the time of his retirement Mr. Hockey's professional totals, including playoffs, for the NHL and WHA combined, were first. He finished with 2421 games played, 1,071 goals, 1,518 assists, and 2,589 points. Wayne Gretzky has since passed him in goals (1,072), assists (2,297), and points (3,369), but not games played (1,788). It is unlikely that anyone will surpass Howe's total professional games played. Mark Messier retired only 11 NHL games behind Howe at 1,756 (and counting minor league action and playoffs, 2,048 total professional games), but this is over five seasons away from 2,478 total professional games (including minor league action).

With the 8th overall selection in the draft, Killericon is proud to select the fastest hockey player of all time; Paul Coffey.

http://www.legendsofhockey.net:8080/LegendsOfHockey/members/splash/P200402S.jpg

Smooth-skating Paul Coffey embodied everything an offensive defenseman could be -- lightning fast, a skilled playmaker, a booming shot and savvy, yet still able to defend his team's zone employing blinding speed. Born June 1, 1961 in Weston, Ontario, the seventeen-year-old Coffey joined the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Major Junior Hockey League for the 1978-79 season, contributing 89 points to the Soo's offense as a rookie defenseman. During his second season of junior, Paul was sent to the Kitchener Rangers. That season, between the Greyhounds and Rangers, Coffey tallied 29 goals and 102 points, and was named to the Ontario Hockey Association's Second All-Star Team. That summer, the Edmonton Oilers used their first pick, the sixth selection overall, to choose Paul Coffey in the 1980 Entry Draft. It was perfect timing for both sides -- the Oilers were developing into a highly skilled, offensively explosive club and Coffey's skill set meshed perfectly as the quarterback of the dynamic young team.
As an NHL rookie, Paul scored nine goals and 32 points, but it was in 1981-82 as a sophomore that Coffey really hit his stride. In his second season, Paul led all NHL defensemen with 89 points and was chosen for the NHL's Second All-Star Team. In 1982-83, he collected 96 points (29 goals and 67 assists), but it was his 126 points in 1983-84 that put him second only to teammate Wayne Gretzky in the NHL scoring race that year. That same season, the high-flying Edmonton Oilers won the first Stanley Cup in franchise history.
In 1984-85, on his way to helping lead the Oilers to their second straight Stanley Cup, Paul Coffey won the Norris Trophy as the National Hockey League's best defenseman and was selected to the First All-Star Team, a feat he replicated in 1985-86 in a season that can only be considered extraordinary. Coffey finished third in scoring with 138 points, including 48 goals and 90 assists.
Prior to the 1987-88 season, Coffey was traded to Pittsburgh, heading east with Wayne Van Dorp and Dave Hunter while Craig Simpson, Dave Hannan, Moe Mantha and Chris Joseph moved to Alberta. In both 1988-89 and '89-90 while with the Penguins, Paul cracked the 100-point plateau for the fourth and fifth times. The blueliner helped the Pittsburgh Penguins win their first Stanley Cup championship in 1990-91.
On February 19, 1992, Coffey was moved to the Los Angeles Kings in return for Brian Benning, Jeff Chychrun and a first round draft pick. L.A. would be the third of nine teams Paul would list on his NHL resume. In January 1993, Coffey was packaged with Jim Hiller and Sylvain Couturier and sent to Detroit for Jimmy Carson, Marc Potvin and Gary Shuchuk, but an injured knee hampered his play that season. By the following season, he had rebounded and not only led the Red Wings in scoring but was once again awarded the Norris Trophy as the league's top defenseman. Paul scored 14 goals in three consecutive seasons as a Red Wing, starting in 1993-94.
Paul's stay in Detroit lasted until October 1996 when he was traded with Keith Primeau and a first round draft selection to Hartford for Brendan Shanahan and Brian Glynn. Midway through the season, Coffey landed in Philadelphia, sent to the Flyers with a third round draft pick for Kevin Haller and two draft picks. During the summer of 1998, the Flyers traded Paul to the Chicago Blackhawks for a draft choice, but after ten games, he was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes. Coffey's last stop was with the Boston Bruins, where he signed as a free agent in 2000. After eighteen games, Paul ended his terrific National Hockey League career; one in which he reached pinnacles seldom even dreamed of -- 396 goals and 1,135 assists gave the skilled defenseman 1,531 points in 1,409 regular season games. Paul also contributed 196 points, comprised of 59 goals and 137 assists, in 194 playoff contests.
Through twenty-one NHL seasons, Paul Coffey was named to either the First or Second All-Star Team eight times, and as the Norris Trophy winner on three occasions. He also appeared in fourteen NHL All-Star Games and represented Canada at four Canada/World Cup tournaments. Paul retired as the highest scoring defenseman in NHL playoff history and the second most proficient defenseman in NHL regular season history, sitting behind Raymond Bourque in career goals, assists, and points.
In 2004, the spectacularly gifted Paul Coffey was selected to be an Honoured Member of the Hockey Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. "I had a chance to see Grant get elected to the Hall last year (2003) and it's a tremendous honour to join all of my Oilers teammates," said Coffey after being notified of his election to the Hall. "When we beat the Islanders to win our first Stanley Cup and later watched the stars from that team get into the Hall, it's amazing to receive the telephone call that Grant, Wayne, Jari and Slats got."
Scotty Bowman, writing in The Hockey News in November 2004, stated, "Coffey was one of the most unique defensemen to ever play in the league. He was often referred to as a 'rover.' The biggest thing about Coffey was his tremendous speed. If he couldn't skate like he did, he would not have been able to move up and play like he did. He was like a fourth forward on most attacks."

With the 9th selection in the All-Time NHL draft, the Philadelphia Flyers select G- Dominik Hasek (Blackhawks, Sabres, Senators, Red Wings). The Flyers finally have a consistant goalie who will last a long time with the team. This selection was a hard one. Hasek, while he may not have the career stats of some goalies, was so utterly dominat during his prime that to not take him feels cheap. Also, I hate Martin Brodeur.

And with the 10th selection (1st of the 2nd round), the Flyers select C- Steve Yzerman (Red Wings). Yzerman wil give the Flyers the leadership and toughness they need, and with 1.16 points per game, he ranks up there with the best. Yzerman over Messier comes due to his higher points per game, as I believe that both would be great captains.

If there are any Bruins fans out there, I'm sorry.

With the 11th overall selection in the draft, Killericon is proud to select THE Bruin; Raymond Bourque.

http://www.legendsofhockey.net:8080/LegendsOfHockey/members/splash/P200401S.jpg

Raymond Bourque, a model of proficiency and consistency at an elite level throughout his career, was born in Montreal, Quebec on December 28, 1960. Inspired by the firewagon offense and oppressive defense of his hometown Canadiens through the dynastic seventies, Ray climbed the rungs of minor hockey, joining the Sorel Eperviers of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in 1976 at the age of sixteen. After a final freshman campaign, the franchise moved from Sorel to Verdun, and Bourque kicked his career into an entirely new gear. In 1977-78, Bourque scored 22 goals and added 57 assists and was subsequently named to the First All-Star Team in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The next season, 1978-79, Bourque repeated his All-Star status, but increased his offensive output with 93 points. After three sterling junior seasons that merely hinted at the incredible potential held by the under-aged defenseman, Raymond Bourque was chosen by the Boston Bruins with their first selection, eighth overall, in the NHL's 1979 Entry Draft. That fall, Bourque made his NHL debut amidst the accolades of teammates, media and opponents. Quietly, methodically, Raymond dazzled, racking up 65 points; the most for a rookie defenseman in NHL history up to that time. He was the obvious choice for the Calder Trophy as the NHL's Rookie of the Year and also earned selection to the NHL's First All-Star Team; the first non-goaltender to win both honours in the same season.
Bourque consistently provided leadership from his spot on the Boston blueline. Through twenty seasons with the Bruins, twelve as team captain, Bourque dominated, earning 17 selections to NHL All-Star Teams. He was a five-time recipient of the Norris Trophy as the NHL's best defenseman. Only Bobby Orr with eight and Doug Harvey with seven have earned more. Bourque enjoyed a career season in 1983-84. His 31 goal output was a career high, and his 96 points were not only a career best, but led all defensemen that season.
Wearing jersey number 7 through his first eight seasons with Boston, Bourque surrendered that number in December 1987 when the Bruins honoured Phil Esposito. At centre ice in front of Esposito and the Boston faithful, Raymond removed his jersey to reveal a second Bruins' sweater -- this one numbered 77. Esposito's number could be retired and Bourque initiated wearing a number that he quickly established as uniquely his own in Boston.
Yet, in spite of all the personal accolades, the one achievement that had eluded Ray was hockey's ultimate team award -- the Stanley Cup. Although Boston had twice reached the final (1988 and 1990), the prize had eluded Bourque and the boys in Boston both times.
When the opportunity arose to join the Colorado Avalanche at the trading deadline in March 2000, Bourque deliberated, then decided to join the Stanley Cup contenders. Although Colorado wasn't successful in achieving its goal that first season, in 2000-2001, a pursuit Ray labeled 'Mission 16 W', the Colorado Avalanche made Bourque's dream a reality when the team was crowned Stanley Cup champions in 2001. It had taken twenty-two seasons, but Raymond Bourque had finally achieved his lifelong hockey goal. That summer, he retired. Nothing like going out on top!
During an extraordinary NHL career, Ray Bourque collected 410 goals and 1,169 assists for 1,579 points in 1,612 regular season games. He retired as the most proficient scoring defenseman in NHL history. In 214 playoff contests, Bourque added 180 points on 41 goals and 139 assists. Ray played in nineteen consecutive NHL All-Star games, surpassing Wayne Gretzky for the league record, earned the King Clancy Trophy in 1992 for his on and off ice contributions to the game and represented Canada in three Canada Cup tournaments (1981, '84 and '97). In addition, Bourque participated in the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano Japan, representing Canada.
In honour of his great contributions to hockey, both the Boston Bruins and Colorado Avalanche retired Ray's #77 jersey. In 2004, Ray Bourque was selected to join hockey's elite in the Hockey Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. "I was hoping to get the call, but when it came, I was completely speechless," said Bourque after receiving notification of his election to the Hall. "When I started out playing in the NHL, my goal was simply to establish myself as a player and I never contemplated this type of honour."
Scotty Bowman, an Honoured Member of hockey's Hall of Fame, stated, "He was a two-way player and he was so durable. He seldom got injured even though he played more than half the game. He played on some good teams in Boston because he made them good." In the November 2004 Hockey News article, Bowman continued, "I always felt Bourque was very similar to (Denis) Potvin. Both were great passers, had a terrific feel for the game and they were strong. Nobody ever would push them around."

Not a bad top pair of defenders, eh?

Defenseman Doug Harvey 1947-1969 Mon/NY/Det/StL.

The best defenseman of his era, as evidenced by an amazing seven Norris Trophies in an eight year span. He hoisted six Stanley Cups with the Canadiens and spent a year as team captain. He was a driving force behind the establishment of an NHL Players Union.

OK, back on track

I was thinking of taking another offensive guy, and I usually prefer old-timers, but I cannot argue with this guys production in the relatively short time he's been on the ice.

Those Cheap Bastards select:

Martin Brodeur, G, New Jersey Devils. He's just in his 14th year, and most of these HOF goalies were able to play anywhere between 18-22 years. I think he's going to move up most of these lists by the time he retires and will definetly be in the conversation for greatest goaltender of all time.

--4th all time in wins, 446. Will pass Sawchuck in wins with 2 wins this season.
--9th all time GAA, 2.21. However, his 813 games at least doubles the eight other goalies ahead of him on this list.
--7th all time in shutouts. With 5 more shut outs he will move to 3rd on the all time list.
--3rd all time in playoff wins. Will become 2nd with 4 playoff wins.
--2nd all time in playoff shutouts. Will become 1st all time with 2 more playoff shutouts.

--NHL All-Rookie Team - 1994
--Calder Memorial Trophy - 1994
--William M. Jennings Trophy - 1997-(shared with Mike Dunham), 1998, 2003 (tied), 2004
--Vezina Trophy - 2003, 2004
--Stanley Cup - 1995, 2000, 2003
--NHL 1st All-Star Team - 2003, 2004
--NHL 2nd All-Star Team - 1997, 1998, 2006

This is an easy one for me. With my second selection I take Joe Sakic, C, Quebec/Colorado.

Super Joe currently sits 11th in all-time NHL scoring and still has a few good years left in front of him. He's led his team to two Stanley Cups (1996, 2001), has won an Olympic gold medal (2002), a World Cup of Hockey championship (2004), a World Championship (1994), and a World Junior championship (1988).

Sakic has also won the Hart Trophy, Conn Smythe Trophy, was the MVP of the 2002 Olympic hockey tournament, and won the 2004 NHL All-Star game MVP.

He's one of the classiest professional athletes to ever live and the state of Colorado is lucky to have had him for over 10 years.

I will proudly select the greatest player who never played in the NHL, Vladislav Tretiak, G CSKA Moscow/Red Army.

http://www.hockeygoalies.org/bio/images/tretiak.gifhttp://www.legendsofhockey.net/graphspot/one_tretiak02.jpg

While he never got a chance to play in the NHL, he led the USSR to dominance in international competition that the world had never seen before or since. In his 13 years as the starting netminder for the Red Army, they captured 3 Olympic gold medals (1972, 1976, 1984), 10 World Championships and 9 European Championships. In 98 career international games, he put up an amazing 1.78 GAA.

He was first team All-Star goaltender in the Soviet League every year from 1971-84, won 13 League Championships and was named League MVP 5 times. He shined in Canada Cup competitions, which he began participating in at the age of 20 in 1972. He came in to that series lightly regarded as being "inconsistant" with "a weak glove hand that could be exploited at will." When that grueling 8 game series was over, the hockey world was buzzing about him.

He's a victim of the cold war in the sense that politics prevented him from showcasing his skills in the NHL, but that shouldn't tarnish the fact that Tretiak is one of the best ever to suit up and man the net.

I have studied the game of Hockey and read alot about the old-timers. I like this guys playing style and he would shore up my Defense pretty damn well. I select one of the toughest SOBs to ever play the game of Hockey....

The Kings select

EDDIE "The Edmonton Express" SHORE




http://www.legendsofhockey.net:8080/LegendsOfHockey/trophies/winners/HMT1933.jpg

Edward William "Eddie" Shore (born November 25, 1902 in Fort Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan, Canada - died March 16, 1985) was a professional ice hockey player in the National Hockey League (NHL). His nickname was "The Edmonton Express".

In 1924, Shore began his hockey career with the Regina Capitals in the Western Hockey League (WHL). Originally a forward, he converted to defense while playing for the Edmonton Eskimos.

When the WHL folded in 1927, Shore was sold to the Boston Bruins of the NHL. As a rookie, he scored 12 goals and 6 assists for a total of 18 points. This was during an era when defensemen scored few goals.

Named to the NHL All-Star team for eight of the team's first nine years, Shore was the only NHL defenseman to win the Hart Trophy as the league's most valuable player four times. While playing for the Bruins, he won two Stanley Cups.

A bruiser known for NHL violence, Shore set an NHL record for 165 penalty minutes in his second season. He frequently ran over players and skated in a trademark crouch so that it was hard for rivals such as Billy Coutu to knock him down. In the 1925/26 season, defensemen Coutu and Sprague Cleghorn of the Montreal Canadiens were traded to the Boston Bruins. During their first practice with the Bruins, Eddie Shore strutted back and forth in front of Coutu and Cleghorn, presumably to show his authority as lead defenseman. Coutu body-slammed Shore, headbutting his skull and severing the ear. Shore visited several doctors who wanted to amputate the ear, but, at the end of that day, finally found one who sewed it back on. After refusing anaesthetic, Shore used a mirror to watch the doctor sew on the ear. Shore claimed Coutu used his hockey stick to cut off the ear, and Coutu was fined $50. However, Shore later recanted and Coutu's money was refunded. Coutu is quoted as saying he always gave Shore a "limp hand" after that. He also ended the career of Toronto Maple Leafs star Ace Bailey with a vicious body check.

The Kings select.....

Jacques Plante
http://www.legendsofhockey.net/graphspot/one_plante01.jpg
Jacques Plante began playing in the NHL in 1952 for the Montreal Canadiens, where he became well known and played the majority of his career. He was a flamboyant, popular player, known for raising his arms high over his head in a "V" victory salute when his team won a key game.

One of the greatest goalies of all time, Plante's contributions to how the position of goalie is understood are beyond that of any other individual. Plante was the first goalie to skate behind the net to stop the puck (a now common practice). He also was the first to raise his arm on an icing call to let his defensemen know what was happening. He perfected a stand-up style that emphasized positional play, cutting down the angles and staying square to the shooter.

He also the first one that created the goalie mask.

He's also won a Stanley Cup as a head coach, but I didn't select him for that.

I thought about going for some bigger name and seeing if this guy would slip a few rounds, but if I let his production go I'd have to shoot myself. So, to avoid blood letting, Those Cheap Bastards select:

Marcel Dionne, C, Red Wings/Kings/Rangers

--4th all time in scoring; 731
--9th all time in assists; 1,040
--5th all time in points; 1,771

Not a bad guy to get in the third round.

A naturally gifted goal scorer and playmaker, center Marcel Dionne was one of the most productive offensive performers in NHL history. His consistency at such a high level earned him respect and accolades throughout the league. And Dionne's accomplishments would have been more widely recognized had he not spent the bulk of his career in the relative hockey obscurity of Los Angeles. Hockey was never a top sport in that city, and his yearly excellence was rarely seen on television in the larger markets of the east.

The native of Drummondville, Quebec, was a junior superstar with the St. Catharines Black Hawks of the OHA. He accumulated 375 points in three junior seasons and helped his team reach the Memorial Cup finals in 1971. Dionne led the OHA in scoring in 1970 and was selected to the league's Second All-Star Team. He defended his scoring title in 1971 and was elevated to the First All-Star roster.

Despite his brilliance as an amateur, Dionne was overshadowed by Quebec Remparts phenomenon Guy Lafleur. In most years, Dionne would have been the top choice in the NHL Amateur Draft, but not in 1971. After Montreal snagged Lafleur first overall, the Detroit Red Wings happily selected Dionne second.

The young Detroit rookie shone with 77 points in 1971-72 and earned an invitation to Team Canada for the 1972 Summit Series versus the USSR. His 49 assists that year had set a new NHL standard for first-year players that was broken by Bryan Trottier in 1975-76. In all, Dionne enjoyed four productive years in Detroit, especially 1974-75, when he recorded 121 points. That year he also set an NHL record with 10 shorthanded goals, a mark that stood until Wayne Gretzky established a new standard in 1983-84. According to Detroit general manager Ned Harkness, Dionne gave the fans some excitement to compensate for the loss of Gordie Howe.

A contract squabble with the Wings brought about Dionne's trade to the Los Angeles Kings prior to the 1975-76 season and he went on to play the prime of his career on the West Coast. Over nearly a dozen full seasons with the Kings, Marcel topped the 100-point mark seven times, was a two-time winner of the Lady Byng Trophy and the Lester B. Pearson Award and was selected to the NHL First and Second All-Star Teams twice each. In 1979-80, he was declared the winner of the Art Ross Trophy after he tied young superstar Wayne Gretzky with 137 points but edged him in goals scored. Between 1975 and 1983, he was the top point-getter on the Kings every year.

Beginning in the 1979-80 season, Dionne formed the lethal Triple Crown Line with Charlie Simmer and Dave Taylor. They became one of the highest-scoring trios in league history before a serious injury to Simmer split the line up for a lengthy period. The trio was machine-like in its efficiency. The crafty pivot, Dionne, feathered passes to his linemates, who worked the corners and the slot to perfection.

The only element lacking in Dionne's career was playoff success. His best post-season came in 1981-82 when he scored 11 points in 10 games to help the Kings stun the record-setting Edmonton Oilers in the first round before losing to Vancouver.

During the early 1980s, Dionne began establishing a number of personal milestones. On January 7, 1981, he recorded his 1,000th point in his 740th game. This represented the fastest trip to that scoring plateau in NHL history until Guy Lafleur set a new record a short time later. On December 14, 1982, Dionne scored his 500th NHL goal when he beat Al Jensen of the Washington Capitals.

Dionne joined the playoffs-bound New York Rangers just prior to the March trading deadline in 1987, but the Blueshirts didn't fare any better in the post-season and were eliminated in the first round. During his first full year in New York, Dionne recorded the 14th 30-goal season of his career. On October 31, 1987, he registered his 700th goal when he beat Kelly Hrudey of the New York Islanders. Later that season, on February 14, 1988, he passed Phil Esposito to become the second-highest goal scorer in NHL history.

He retired after 37 games in 1988-89 with 731 goals and 1,771 points. At the time of his retirement, those totals placed him third on the NHL all-time scoring list behind only Gretzky and Howe.

The popular and gregarious Dionne was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1992.

G - Ken Dryden Montreal Canadiens 1970-1979


In eight seasons, Dryden won 258 games to only 57 losses and 74 ties. His .758 winning percentage is the best in NHL goaltending history.


He had 46 career shutouts. Incredibly, he had only nine more losses than shutout wins for his career.


2.24 lifetime goals-against average.


He appeared in 112 playoff games, winning 80, with 10 shutouts and a 2.40 average.


Helped lead Montreal to six Stanley Cup victories, including underdog wins against the Blackhawks and Bruins.


The Canadiens called Dryden up from the minors to play goal near the end of the 1970-71 season. In 6 games, he gave up only 9 goals, and he started for the Canadiens in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Dryden won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player in the playoffs.


The following season, he won the Calder Trophy as the NHL's outstanding rookie.


Won the Vezina Trophy, awarded to the league's top goaltender, five times: 1973 and from 1976 through 1979.


In September of 1972, Dryden shared goaltending duties with Tony Esposito on a victorious Team Canada in its legendary 1972 Summit Series against the Soviet Union.


An All-American at Cornell, Dryden sat out the 1974-75 season to earn his law degree at McGill University in Montreal. He retired after the 1978-79 season to practice law.


A member of Canada's Liberal Party, the popular and influential Dryden may one day wind up as the Canadian Prime Minister.

Killericon is proud to select Tony Esposito.

http://www.legendsofhockey.net:8080/LegendsOfHockey/members/splash/P198801S.jpg

As one half of perhaps the most colorful brother act in NHL history, Tony "0" revolutionized goaltending in the NHL with his legs-open "butterfly" style and his spectacular flop-on-the-ice saves during the 16 years he spent in the league, all except one with the Chicago Black Hawks. As the younger brother of scoring star Phil, Tony had something to prove when he entered the league in 1968. After a collegiate career with the Michigan Tech Huskies and the Vancouver Canucks of the Western Hockey League, he spent time with Houston of the Central Hockey League. His first partial year with Montreal was unspectacular - the Canadiens had Gump Worsley and Rogie Vachon ahead of him - but after being traded to Chicago, he was impressive in his first full season, recording a Calder and Vezina Trophy-winning year in 1969-70 with a 2.17 goals-against average and a modern-era record of 15 shutouts.
Fans of the game were quick to point out that the Hawks under coach Billy Reay were a defensive-minded squad and that at 5'11" and 190 pounds, Esposito was a stocky, very mature 26-year-old rookie. But more important, he was fast gaining a reputation as having the quickest glove hand in the game and an unorthodox style that was confounding but nevertheless extremely effective. The Vezina win in his first year made him the first rookie to win the trophy since Frank Brimsek in 1939.
Even so, Tony was good enough between the pipes to win a scholarship to Michigan Tech, graduating in three years with a business degree and attaining all-American status each year. As a pro, he quickly gained a reputation as an emotional, vocal goalie who would yell regularly at his defensemen and stay well back in his crease except when he came out to poke-check skaters. He added to his rookie Vezina win by sharing the trophy with Gary Smith in 1972 and tying Bernie Parent in 1974. In his career, he totaled 76 regular-season shutouts.
Incredibly, the Black Hawks never failed to make the playoffs while Esposito was on the team. Internationally, he was a standout as well. In 1972 he shared the goaltending role with Ken Dryden on Team Canada in the Summit Series. And in 1981 he tended goal during the Canada Cup, but this time for Team USA, his country of residence.
Later in his career, Esposito began to gain a reputation as one of the grand old men of the NHL. But it wasn't always easy. By the early 1980s, he'd become dissatisfied with the way his teammates were performing in Chicago. But by 1982, with Tony's help, the Hawks turned their game around again. As the oldest player in the league, Tony started to play like he was a decade younger in the 1982 playoffs, with a goals-against average under 2.00.
By 1983-84, Tony was the oldest player in the league and the only one over 40 years of age. Observers started to notice that while he was once the type of player who insisted on playing every minute of every game, he wisely realized that, at his age, he had to pick his spots and he happily shared the goalie's duties with backup Murray Bannerman.
But it was eventually time for Tony "0" to hang up the big pads and he was released by the Hawks in 1984. He wasn't long out of the pro game, though, before the Pittsburgh Penguins made him director of hockey operations.
After his time in Pittsburgh, Tony joined brother Phil in the front office of the expansion Tampa Bay Lightning. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1988. But he will be best remembered as one of the true pioneers among netminders in the NHL.

Oh db31, your time is running short.
Matter of fact, it's run out.

Killericon is proud to select another tragic member of the Bruins; THE prototypical power Forward; Cam Neely.

http://www.legendsofhockey.net/graphinduct/ind05Neely.jpg

Cam Neely's career was cut tragically short by a series of nagging injuries, that stopped him from playing out even one full season; yet he still managed to score 395 Goals.

If he had played as many games a Steve Yzerman, and had scored at the same pace he did over his career, he would've finished with 824 goals; which would've placed him 2nd all time.

Cameron "Cam" Michael Neely (born June 6, 1965, in Comox, British Columbia) played right wing in the National Hockey League from 1983 to 1996. He was originally drafted by the Vancouver Canucks and played three seasons in Vancouver. The Canucks traded Neely and a draft pick (1st choice, 3rd overall in the 1987 NHL Entry Draft, used to get Glen Wesley) to the Boston Bruins for Barry Pederson. Almost immediately, it became apparent that the Bruins had received the better of the deal. In his first full season following the trade, Neely's 36 goals led the club, and his 72 points more than doubled his previous year's performance.

Neely's success stemmed largely from his hard, accurate shot, quick release, and his willingness to engage in the more physical aspects of the game. At 6 ft 1 in and 215 lb, Neely was as devastating with his body checks and fists, as he was with his goal scoring exploits. He became the archetype of the ultimate power forward and earned the nickname 'Bam-Bam Cam' (in draft after draft, general managers would say that they needed to find a "Cam Neely" type).

Neely would play ten seasons with the Bruins, and though increasingly injury-prone, recorded some remarkable scoring feats. Only Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, and Brett Hull scored a better goals per game average over the course of an NHL season than Neely did with his 50-goals-in-49-games in the 1993-94 season. Also, only ten players in NHL history scored a better goals per game average over their career than Neely. He reached the fifty goal mark three times, played in five All-Star games, and was named the league's Second Team All-Star at right wing in 1988, 1990, 1991, and 1994.

Scoring 50 goals in 50 games is considered the bench-mark of great goal scorers. Maurice Richard, Mike Bossy, Wayne Gretzky, Brett Hull, Mario Lemieux, Alexander Mogilny, and Jari Kurri are the only other players to score 50 goals in 50 games or less. In the 1993-94 season Neely scored his 50th goal in his 44th game, only Gretzky has scored 50 goals in fewer games. Unfortunately, Cam Neely's 50 in 44 does not count in the record books because the record books state "50 goals in 50 team games or less". Neely was injured for much of the 1993-94 NHL season and did not score his 50th goal in his team's 50th game or less.

In addition, Neely's intense efforts to come back time and again from his devastating injuries were recognized with his winning of the Masterton Trophy after the 1993-94 season. Sadly, a degenerative hip condition forced Neely into a premature retirement. His #8 jersey has been retired by the Bruins, making him the tenth player to have a number retired by the team.

Neely was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2005.

C Phil Esposito 1963-1981 Blackhawks/Bruins/Rangers

http://nhl.speedera.net/image-upload/esposito_phil_bos_2.jpg

Height: 6' 1'' Weight: 205
Born: 2/20/1942, in Sault Ste. Marie, ON, CAN


Greatest scorer of his day. He became the first NHL player to score 100 points in a season with 126 in the 1969 season.


Utterly destroyed the single season goal mark with 76 in 1971.


Also set the single season point mark in 1971 with 151.


Won the Hart Trophy as the league's MVP in 1969 and 1974.


Won the Art Ross Trophy in 1969 and 1971-1974 as the top regular season scorer.


Named to the NHL's First All-Star team six consecutive times (from 1969 to 1974).


Fifth on the all-time goals scored list with 717.


Eighth all-time in points with 1590.


Esposito and fellow superstar Bobby Orr led the Bruins to Stanley Cup victories in 1970 and 1972.


In Boston, Esposito's play in front of the net inspired the bumper sticker: "Jesus saves, Espo scores on the rebound."


His emotional speech on Canadian television immediately following Team Canada's loss to the Soviet Union in game four of the 1972 Summit Series fired up the national team and inspired them to come back and win the series.

JCMElway had a brilliant idea.

If you miss three picks, your team will be assigned to someone else.

Of course, dbroncos31 is a different case; his back to back picks count as one pick. This applies to the clock managment as well. He only gets 2 strikes though.

ok, so teams at the top and bottom of the draft order would have to miss a total of 4 picks. Got it.

I'm going to make my pick tomorrow for a couple of reasons. 1) The site I do my hockey research on isn't running properly right now. 2) I think that DB31 may jump on the Mane at work. We'll see if his pick gets in at aroun 9 or 10 AM.

I'll have my selection in around 6 PM CST.

Damn, CO. I was hoping Foppa would fall to my next pick so I could reunite he and Sakic.

Icon, left wing is just not a strong position historically after Bobby Hull. Luc Robitaille was a great scorer, though he never really scared you as an opposing fan. I'd rather just move over some right handed centers to left wing.

Kings with the 36th overall pick select Jean Beliveau-




Jean Arthur Béliveau, CC , CQ , D.h.c. (b. August 31, 1931 in Trois-Rivières, Quebec, Canada) was a professional ice hockey player. He is a Canadian icon, and one of the most respected figures to have ever played the game.

A star at an early age, he won the Quebec Senior Hockey League scoring championship with the Quebec Aces in 1953 then joined the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League (NHL). Three years later, in 1956, Béliveau won both the Art Ross Memorial Trophy as the league's scoring champion and the Hart Memorial Trophy as its most valuable player. During his 18 year career in Montreal, he played on 10 Stanley Cup winning teams and was team captain for five of them. A powerful skater, he had a polished air of composed confidence that made him a natural leader both on and off the ice. Admired and respected by fans, teammates and his opponents, he was the first player to win the Conn Smythe Trophy for his performance in the 1965 Stanley Cup playoffs.

Jean Béliveau retired at the end of the 1970-71 NHL season as his team's all-time leading scorer and the NHL's all-time leading playoff scorer. He scored 507 goals and had 712 assists for 1,219 points in 1,125 NHL regular-season games plus 70 goals and 97 assists for 176 points in 162 playoff games. His jersey number (#4) was retired on October 9, 1971. In 1972, he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

The Kings with their 37th overall pick select...

Luuuuuuuuuuc Robitaille


http://www.ushl.com/img/0506/news/20051015luc_robitaille_action.jpg

"Lucky" Luc Robitaille (born February 17, 1966 in Montréal, Québec, Canada) is a retired professional ice hockey player. In a 20-year NHL career from 1986 to 2006, he played for the Los Angeles Kings, New York Rangers, Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins. Robitaille retired as the all-time highest-scoring left winger in National Hockey League history and the holder of the Kings franchise record for goals.

Robitaille starred in junior hockey for the Hull Olympiques of the QMJHL, scoring an amazing 191 points in 1985-86, and being named the CHL Player of the Year that season. However, due to perceived skating deficiencies, Luc was not drafted until the 9th round (171st overall) by the Los Angeles Kings in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft; five rounds earlier, the Kings had drafted Tom Glavine, who would become a star pitcher in Major League Baseball. Somewhat ironically, only Robitaille's former teammate Dave Taylor has ever had as many as one thousand career points after being drafted so low.

Despite such an inauspicious start, Robitaille burst onto the NHL scene in 1986, garnering the Calder Memorial Trophy for rookie of the year honors after scoring 45 goals and 39 assists in his first year. He would never look back, scoring more than forty goals in each of his first eight seasons for Los Angeles (a string broken only by the shortened strike year of 1994-95), registering three seasons exceeding fifty goals in that time. In the 1992-93 season, holding the team's captaincy in place of injured captain Wayne Gretzky, he broke Steve Shutt's record for goals by a left winger with a team leading 63 and John Bucyk's mark for points by a left winger with a team leading 125, marks which both still stand. He followed that up with being the third leading scorer (behind Gretzky and Tomas Sandstrom) for the Kings in their run to the Stanley Cup finals that season, making him the only person to ever dethrone Wayne Gretzky as his team's leading scorer during a season.

Somewhat astonishingly, Robitaille was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins after the 1993-94 NHL season for Rick Tocchet and a draft choice. After a single season in Pittsburgh, he was traded to the New York Rangers, where he spent two seasons before being traded back to Los Angeles for winger Kevin Stevens.

His return to Los Angeles was not immediately triumphant. In an injury plagued 1997-98 season he had the lowest point total of his career to that time, but the next three years proved otherwise, as Robitaille returned to form as one of the great left wingers of hockey. However, wishing for a shot at the Stanley Cup, which playing for Los Angeles was unlikely to grant, he signed as a free agent in 2001 with the star-studded, veteran Detroit Red Wings. Robitaille scored thirty goals that year and was a key component to the Red Wings Cup win.

After a mediocre following season, the worst of his career, Robitaille, hoping to finish his career back in Los Angeles, signed as a free agent in the fall of 2003 with the Kings. He led the team in scoring the next season at the age of 38.

On the night of Thursday, January 19, 2006 during a game against the Atlanta Thrashers, Robitaille broke the Kings' all time franchise scoring record with his second goal of the night, his five-hundred and fifty-first (551st) goal in total. He went on to score a hat-trick third goal on an empty net in the final seconds of the 3rd period, embossing the new record, at least temporarily, at five-hundred and fifty two (552) goals. His record breaking goal was met with several minutes of a stadium-wide standing ovation and a video-congratulation reel was run on the in-house monitors for fans to watch.


Robitaille finished his legendary career with 668 goals, and 726 assists for a total of 1,394 points in 1,431 games played over the course of 19 NHL seasons (1986-87 to 2005-06).

With the 41st selection Those Cheap Bastards select:

Adam Oates, C, Red Wings/Bruins/Capitals.

I may move him over to RW, I'm not sure yet. He's a rightie, so the transition whouldn't be out of the question. Not every guy can be an all-out scorer. Oates was great a giving it up so others could "put the biscuit in the basket."

--13th on the all time points list
--6th on the all time assists list

Oates initially did not have much hope of an NHL career, until Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute offerred him a scholarship. He played for the college from 1982 to 1985, where he was a major contributor to RPI's 1985 NCAA Division I championship. After that season, Oates signed as an undrafted free agent with the Detroit Red Wings, with the richest rookie contract up to this time at $1 million over four years. Oates eventually graduated with a Management degree from RPI in 1991.

Although the team's second centreman behind Steve Yzerman, Oates solidified his reputation as an elite NHL playmaker with the Red Wings, and by his last season with the club 1988-89 he was scoring at an almost assist-per-game pace. However, he was traded to the St. Louis Blues after the season along with Paul MacLean for Bernie Federko and Tony McKegney.

Oates prospered in St. Louis, where he teamed up with Brett Hull and became part of the "Hull n Oates" tandem, a reference to the musical duo of Hall & Oates. Mostly thanks to Oates, Hull had three consecutive seasons with at least 70 goals, including the 1990-91 season when Hull scored 86 (a record for right wingers) and won the Hart Trophy. Oates also had a spectacular season, as he had 90 assists and 115 points in only 61 games, earning him a NHL Second Team All-Star. However, as Oates was paid far lower than his market worth, he held out for much of the next season until he was traded to the Boston Bruins in return for Craig Janney and Stephane Quintal.

Oates had perhaps his best seasons yet in 1992-93, as he scored a career-high 45 goals, 97 assists and 142 points to finish third overall in regular season scoring behind Mario Lemieux and Pat LaFontaine. Ironically, the only other player to score 100 points for the Bruins that season was fellow RPI alumnus, Joe Juneau. As well, Oates' 97 assists were more formidable than his totals in his St. Louis years, considering that he did not have a bona-fide sniper playing alongside him the whole season, as Bruins sniper Cam Neely was injured for all but 13 games during the season. The next season, Oates again finished third with 32 goals, 80 assists, and 112 points, behind Wayne Gretzky and Sergei Federov.

Oates played with Boston until the 1996-97 NHL season, when he was traded to the Washington Capitals with Bill Ranford and Rick Tocchet for Jim Carey, Anson Carter, Jason Allison and Washington's 3rd round choice (Lee Goren) in 1997 Entry Draft, March 1, 1997 in a blockbuster move near the trading deadline. Oates helped lead the Capitals to the Stanley Cup Finals the next season, but failed to win as the Capitals lost to the Red Wings, Oates' first NHL team. Oates had a few more productive seasons with the Caps, leading the league in assists in 2000-01 and 2001-02, both feats were done in the two seasons leading up to his fortieth birthday which also made him the oldest player to do so. On January 14, 2002, Oates became only the eighth player in NHL history to earn at least 1,000 career assists, a tribute to his playmaking skills.

In 2002-03, Oates made his second trip to the Stanley Cup Finals, this time with the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, but again his team was beat out, this time in seven games by the New Jersey Devils. His career looked to be over after the season, but on November 17, 2003, the Edmonton Oilers desperately needed a center, and signed Oates to a contract. However, the season was a disappointment as he scored only two goals and 18 points, although the Oilers stayed in the playoff hunt until the end of the season. Oates announced his retirement on April 3, 2004 after his team was narrowly eliminated from the postseason

Legacy

Next to Gretzky, Oates is considered one of the most creative and effective playmakers in the modern NHL era, as Oates had more assists than any other player during the 1990s except for Gretzky. Brett Hull and Oates united to form a high-scoring tandem for three years, with Oates supplying the playmaking for Hull, who was a natural sniper. During those three years, Hull's goal totals were 72-86-70. Outside of the three season, when Hull was not centered by Oates, he never surmounted the 60 goal mark.

Despite his skillful playmaking, strong face-off win percentage, and impressive scoring statistics, Oates never won the Stanley Cup in his career. He was also well known as a clean player, being a six time finalist for the Lady Byng Trophy but losing to Wayne Gretzky, Pierre Turgeon, Ron Francis, and Joe Sakic. He finished third in regular season scoring three times (1990-1991, 1992-1993, and 1993-1994), but only made the postseason All-Star Second Team in 1991. The other two seasons near the top, Oates narrowed missed out because players that finished ahead of him in the scoring place also played centre. Oates's lack of honours meant that he was often underrated compared to his peers.

Oates is considered by most hockey experts to be a favourite for the Hockey Hall of Fame when he is eligible in 2007 but has a lot of competition (Mark Messier, Scott Stevens, Al MacInnis and Ron Francis all become eligible the same year) so it may take a few tries before he gets inducted.

Just to be clear are we moving players to positions they dont play? Are we moving Centers to play wing?

Just to be clear are we moving players to positions they dont play? Are we moving Centers to play wing?

I think that's a question for our intrepid leader, Killericon. I would think it would be a fair thing to do. Moving from C to either Winger spot is not a huge jump. I wouldn't however, think that it's fair to move a winger to D, or something like that.

But, if KI wants to keep all of the positions pure I'd be down with that. Whatever he decides.

Killericon
08-02-2006, 11:00 PM
Just to be clear are we moving players to positions they dont play? Are we moving Centers to play wing?
Yes, we can do that. Heck, if you wind up with Yzerman(See below) you could get him to play Goalie.

Looks like dbroncos31 is not coming back. JCMElway had a nice idea about what to do to correct the situation.

It looks like DB31 isn't coming back. If we can't find someone to take over his team, than I think we need to find a fair way of releasing Hasek and Yzerman for people to pick up.

Perhaps a lottery. You draw names out of a hat. Say for instance the order was Jori, CB24, and Killericon..... If he was first, Jori would have the option of taking Yzerman or Hasek. He would then have to release one of his already selected players. If he was not interested he could pass. CB24 would then have that option. I think that's a fair way to get them on a team.

Another way to run this would be to do it in reverse draft order. So the people with the option to pick up those players up first would be, in order: KI, Slap, Jori JCM......

Actually, I think the reverse draft thing is the most fair. The person to pick up that player would still have to drop a person from their roster, tho'. That makes the decision a bit tougher.
Any objections?

Of course, just to be Fair, since I'm the moderator, I'll decline any option at either one.

Also, you may only take one of them, unless noone else takes them until you would be back on the clock.

We won't find a replacement for him, since he only did one round.

I do think that reverse draft order is the fairest way to go. Very nice move to take yourself out of the running, KI.

So, that means that Slap has the first option whether or not to pick up Hasek or Yzerman. And if he picks one of them up he has to release one player. Jori and myself are next in line.

So Slap, are you interested in picking one of these two up?

I don't want to reveal the identity of the next player on my board now, on the chance I'll wind up dropping him for Yzerman, though.

It seems a little unfair to award such great players to two teams, though. Maybe we should just eliminate those two guys from the player pool.

Killericon can't risk seeing his favourite player falling off the board to someone else's squad...So he will make this player the 4th LW taken.

Killericon is happy, proud, and overjoyed(but a little ashamed to be reaching) to select LW Paul Kariya.

http://www.cuttingedgeathletics.com/images/Kariya.jpg

If Paul plays as many games as Steve Yzerman, and continues his per-season level of performance, he will retire with a total of 701 goals, which would place him 7th all time.

Kariya's development into a top-tier player came from his devotion to the game and the support of his sporting family. Of Japanese descent, Paul was born and raised in North Vancouver, British Columbia. His father, Tetsuhiko, toured for several years with the Canadian national rugby team. Paul took to the ice early, beginning at age three as a figure skater and then as a hockey player a year later. He had an instinctual balance on skates and excelled as a youngster, moving easily around the ice while the other kids struggled to stay upright. He moved up quickly and began playing with older players, listening to his father who coached him as an under-aged Atom. Though a diminutive player, Kariya was head-and-shoulders above the competition as a 15-year-old. He made the trek north to Penticton, a hockey factory that produced such stars as Andy Moog and Brett Hull, and with the Panthers he was able to attend a high quality school, which his parents always stressed. Kariya was the youngest of the 170 teenagers trying out for the Penticton Panthers, a new team in the BCJHL. Not only did he make the team, but he was voted its captain. The Panthers struggled, but Kariya averaged almost two points a game on his way to winning Junior Player-of-the-Year honors in the province.
Halfway through the next season, Kariya was selected to play for Canada in the World Junior Championships in Germany, joining another much talked about junior, Eric Lindros. The two became friends during the tournament and Lindros, seeing that the smaller player was exhausted and sick after so many games, suggested Kariya take a break when he returned. Kariya did not heed the advice and became sicker. He collapsed just before an All-Star game and was diagnosed with mononucleosis. He returned after missing 12 games and led the Panthers to respectability. Kariya finished his final junior season with 132 points and was chosen the top junior player in Canada.
Kariya received scholarship offers from all over the United States, as well as a lucrative deal to play in the WHL with the Tri-City Americans. He decided to further his education and play for the University of Maine Black Bears in the United States collegiate ranks. In his first season, 1992-93, Maine was chosen the pre-season favorite to win the national championship. Fans filled the arena for practices and the Black Bears did not disappoint, losing only one game in the regular season. Kariya had 93 points and won the Hobey Baker Award as the nation's top player, the first freshman to win that honor. The day after winning the award, he led a third period comeback against Lake Superior State to secure the national title for Maine.
That summer, Kariya was selected 4th overall at the NHL Entry Draft by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, and was the fanchises first player, but one of Kariya's dreams was to play for Canada in the Olympics, an assignment the Mighty Duck management agreed might help the winger ready himself for the pro game. He began his season with Maine and then joined the Canadian Olympic team as it readied itself for the 1994 Games in Lillehammer, Norway. After a strong exhibition schedule, Kariya was Team Canada's top scorer in the tournament with four assists and three goals, including an overtime winner against the Czech Republic in the quarterfinals. In the gold medal game, the final event of the Olympics, Canada and Sweden had to go to a sudden-death shootout to decide the winner. After five shooters for both teams, including Kariya, who scored one of Canada's two goals, the teams were still deadlocked. In the sudden death encore Kariya had to score to keep Canada's chances alive after Peter Forsberg scored on a nifty deke. However, Swedish keeper Tommy Salo made an acrobatic save on Kariya's close-in shot to win the game and the gold for Sweden.
Despite the disappointment, watched by millions of Canadians, Kariya rebounded to give everyone a taste of what was to come in 47 games with the Mighty Ducks and as a member of Canada's entry in the World Cup. The next season, 1995-96, he exploded for 108 points in his first full year in the NHL. It was a pace he would continue over the following three seasons, collecting 227 points in 220 games.
In February 1996 Kariya was named a starter for the All-Star Game. He was still in awe of his fellow stars, making comments to that effect to the man he stood next to during the introductions, Winnipeg's high scoring Teemu Selanne. Three weeks later Kariya became more familiar with the talented Finn when the Mighty Ducks made a trade with Winnipeg to bring Selanne to Anaheim. Selanne had the speed and goal-scoring touch to take advantage of Kariya's innate ability to find the open man. The twosome formed a dangerous and fast combination, often teaming with center Steve Rucchin who, like Kariya, was a product of the post-secondary hockey system, joining the team after starring at the University of Western Ontario.
Anaheim was improving but still had not made the playoffs during Kariya's stay when the 1996-97 season began. Kariya, named the team's captain, missed the first 11 games of the season due to injury, and his importance to the Mighty Ducks became apparent. The team won only one game during his absence. When he returned, Anaheim began to climb in the standings, earning a playoff spot by the end of the season. Kariya scored an overtime goal to keep the team alive in the first round against the Phoenix Coyotes as the Ducks rallied to advance to the next round in seven games. The Detroit Red Wings, the eventual Stanley Cup champions, had too much depth for Anaheim in the conference semifinals, sending the upstarts from the West home in four games. Kariya's 99 points in his shortened season and Anaheim's success ensured his name was among the final three considered for the Hart Trophy as the league's Most Valuable Player.
Just before he was to play in the 1998 All-Star Game, Kariya sustained his fourth concussion in a nasty incident involving Chicago's Gary Suter. Kariya never lost consciousness and could remember the details of the game. Only later did he feel the effects of the hit, the headaches and the memory loss. He missed the rest of the season and the Nagano Olympics because of post-concussion syndrome.
He returned to form the next season. Terrorizing defenders and goalies with Selanne, Kariya finished third in overall scoring in 1998-99.
In the summer of 2002, he was one of the original eight players named to Canada's Olympic Team. Kariya played alongside Mario Lemieux at Salt Lake City, and helped power the Canadians to the gold medal with three goals and an assist.
Following a sub-par 2001-02 regular season in Anaheim, Kariya and the Ducks were looking to get back on the right track, and they did so with Kariya finishing the regular season with 81 points on the strength of 25 goals and 56 assists while the Ducks qualified for the post season for the first time since 1998-99. Not only did they qualify, but they reached the Stanley Cup Final only to lose to the New Jersey Devils in a hard-fought seven game series.
After nine seasons in Anaheim, the former Hobey Baker winner was acquired by the Colorado Avalanche in the summer of 2003. Upon his arrival with the Avs, Kariya went on to play a mere 51 games with the club due to injury and subsequently signed as a free agent with the Nashville Predators in the summer of 2005, where he scored 31 goals and 54 assists in his first season with the team.


The Moment he became my favourite player:

Killericon selects his first pure hitter, D Rob Blake.

http://www.legendsofhockey.net:8080/LegendsOfHockey/gallery/000078/0256.jpg

In the late 1980s, as a means of developing their skills, an ever-increasing number of Canadians were choosing American college hockey over junior hockey. Rob Blake was no different. A native of Simcoe, Ontario, he opted to attend Bowling Green University, and in 1987-88, following his second year, he was selected 70th overall by Los Angeles in the NHL's entry draft. Ironically, he also considered leaving the school at the time because he did not feel he was making enough progress in his game. Blake stayed on for a third year, making the M division's First All-Star team, being named a Hobey Baker Award finalist, and getting called up to the Kings for the last four games of the regular season to experience a taste of NHL life. The following season, he made the team with an outstanding performance in training camp and became the team's number one defenseman.
Blake was thrilled to be joining an L.A. team that featured Wayne Gretzky. An offensive defenseman who was equally adept in his own end, Blake cherished the opportunity to join the rush when Gretzky had the puck, and in his first year he had 12 goals and 46 points from the blue line. Gretzky took to Blake immediately, and likened him to a young Paul Coffey due to his offensive talent and his superb shot, which became an integral part of the Los Angeles powerplay that Gretzky orchestrated.
In each full season Blake played, his numbers increased, but at the same time injuries were forever taking up a large part of his season. In 1994-95, he missed 24 games with a pulled groin and the next year he tore an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) just six games into the season and missed the remainder of the year. He has also broken his hand and foot, resulting in further long stretches away from the ice.
An early highlight of Blake's career came during the 1993 playoffs when the team, led by Gretzky, made it to the Stanley Cup finals. Along the way they beat Calgary and Vancouver and then eliminated Toronto in game seven at Maple Leaf Gardens. But in the finals Blake and the Kings faced a Montreal team that had won 10 overtime games in these playoffs, and the Kings lost in six games. Blake had 10 points that spring and anchored a defense that was virtually impenetrable until that Habs series.
The Kings performed well on a regular basis during most of the 1990s, but never fared well in the playoffs beyond 1993. The result was that Blake had a chance to successfully represent Canada internationally on many occasions, each time happily taking advantage of the honor and experience. He played at the World Championships in 1991, 1994, 1997, 1998 and 1999, winning a gold medal on the 1994 and 1997 teams and a silver in 1991. He also played in the World Cup in 1996, and was key to Canada's defense at the Nagano Olympics in 1998, where he was named the best defenseman in the tournament. Following Nagano, Blake returned to the Kings lineup and continued his strong play, enabling him to capture the 1998 James Norris Trophy as the league's Top Defenseman.
After parts of 12 seasons with the Kings, Blake was acquired by the Colorado Avalanche in the latter stages of the 2000-01 season. Upon his arrival with the Avs, Blake was instrumental in leading the Avs to the 2001 Stanley Cup title and one year later helping Canada capture Gold at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

A thought occurs: Kariya was the first player who ever donned a Ducks uniform to be taken.

Quick reminder:

Oh, and since we're getting pretty far into it, could you guys try to post up a player's info in the format I've been displaying on the draft history? You know...

{Posistion} - {First Name and Last Name} ({Teams played for, seperated by a comma})

Ex.

C - Wayne Gretzky(Oilers, Blues, Kings, Rangers)

Scotty Bowman Bio:

Bowman became the league's most successful coach over his 30 years of coaching with 1,244 wins in the regular season and 223 in the playoffs. He won a record 9 Stanley Cups with Montreal Canadiens (1973, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979), Pittsburgh Penguins (1992) and Detroit Red Wings (1997, 1998 and 2002). He won the Jack Adams Award in 1977 and 1996. In the 1976-1977 season he won a record 60 games then, in 1996, won 62, breaking his own record for regular season wins. He won a 10th Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh in 1991 while serving as the Director of Player Development.

Bowman moved into the NHL in 1966 when he became the head coach of the first-year expansion team St. Louis Blues. He led the Blues to the Stanley Cup Finals in the first three consecutive years of the franchise. He coached in St. Louis until the end of the 1970-71 season (his first NHL season with a losing record), and became the head coach of the Montreal Canadiens after the firing of Canadiens head coach Al MacNeil. It was with the Montreal Canadiens that he had his most success, as his new team lost in the first round of the playoffs in 1972 but won the Stanley Cup in 1973. The Canadiens would make the playoffs over the next two seasons but bow out in the first and third rounds, respectively as the rival Philadelphia Flyers won the Stanley Cup. From 1976 to 1979, he led a talented Canadiens squad, with players like Guy Lafleur, Steve Shutt and Ken Dryden, to four consecutive Stanley Cups. Bowman's team won at least 45 games in each of his eight seasons as the Canadiens head coach.

The 1980s

The dynasty in Montreal ended as Bowman stepped down as head coach to become the new General Manager and head coach of the Buffalo Sabres. After failing to turn the Sabres into the winner he had in Montreal, he quit hockey temporarily in 1987 to become an analyst for the CBC's Hockey Night in Canada. He became the Director of Player Personnel of the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1991 and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame that year as a builder.

The 1990s

Bowman was thrust back into the head coaching duties in the Fall of 1991, after the untimely death of Bob Johnson, who had just won the Stanley Cup with the Penguins the previous season. After winning the 1992 Stanley Cup, his sixth, the Penguins were upset in the 1993 playoffs by the New York Islanders, after acquiring the regular season's best record. Bowman then became head coach of the Detroit Red Wings.

The following season he saw his Red Wings defeated by the young San Jose Sharks. In 1995, the Red Wings made it to the Stanley Cup Finals but were swept by the New Jersey Devils in four straight. This was the Red Wings' first appearance in the Finals in 29 years. In the 1995-96 regular season, he won a record 62 games. However, they lost to the Colorado Avalanche in the playoffs third round. In the 1997 playoffs, Bowman led the team to its first Stanley Cup in 42 years by sweeping the Philadelphia Flyers 4-0. The Red Wings repeated the feat the following season by sweeping the Washington Capitals. In 1999, they were upset by the Colorado Avalanche in the semi-finals.

Retirement

Bowman decided in February 2002 that he would retire at the end of the season and he went out as a winner as his Red Wings won the Stanley Cup by defeating the Carolina Hurricanes 4 games to 1. It was after the presentation of the Cup on the ice that Bowman publicly announced his retirement from coaching. He remains with Detroit as a senior adviser to the team's management, and also occasionally makes appearances on ESPN as a pre-game analyst.

Tickets are hard to come by these past few seasons...

I've never even been to Denver, outside of a layover.


I got to go to Calgary this year to watch my first hockey game ever and it was awesome. It's the closest venue for me. Of course, nothing would match being able to go to a home game in Denver...especially if some of the group from here was there. :)

CO is my advisor and he said he was willing to help me finish up my draft, so that's who'll be doing mine for me. What a guy! ;)

Already used my vacation fund this year (not to mention the XBOX 360 I bought). The wife has plans for whatever $$ comes next, so it may be a while before I get out of town again, unfortunately.


Oh I hear ya. I'm cringing right now at the thought of driving to Colorado with the gas like it is. We were maybe considering going to Waterworld ?, I think it's called. Not sure if we can afford tix for the whole family though. Maybe we'll draw straws. Ha!

Anyone from here been there and is it cool enough to warrant the admission?

Man, you obviously have'nt been around Calgary during a playoff run.

Did you know that during the 04 finals, when the games were in Tampa, the Saddledome staff brought in two giant screens onto the ice, back-to-back, and let anyone who brouhgt a non-perishable food item as entry fee. The place sold out every time.

Man, when we're down, Calgary fans suck, but when we're on the top...we can't be beat.

Has nothing to do with your post, but hey.

I believe tickets are $29 for adults and $23 for children, which isn't bad if you ask me.

Has nothing to do with your post, but hey.Considering the Flames have had one good playoff run in the past 16 years it's not out of the ordinary for the fans to go crazy like they did in 2004.

It's not unique for a team to bring in video boards for an away game and sell out the arena when they're in a championship series. The Avalanche did this in 1996 and many other teams have, too.

I was in the Saddledome and the streets of Calgary when the Flames clinched the 2006 Northwest Division vs. the Avalanche. I was impressed by the fans, but I wouldn't say they can't be beat. I've lived in Denver for the 1997 & 1998 Bronco Super Bowl runs and the 1996 & 2001 Avalanche Stanley Cup wins, as well as South Florida during the Marlins' amazing 2003 World Series run; every city that wins a major championship goes pretty crazy for their team. The Red Mile in '04 was cool, for sure, but saying Flames fans can't be beat is being naive.

Well, fine, kill my thunder.

Not as if I have much experience in the matter, anyways. I am 16, you know. In any case, my use of the qualifier 'man' was'nt in reference to the person I was speaking to, so the correction was unneeded. ;)

I was just happy we weren't hassled too much, being opposing fans. We were in a spot I was worried about being in. There were a lot of people with food behind me and I was sure I was going to be walking out with gunked up hair and a stained jersey, but I didn't!

The most grief I got, ( very embarassing to me ) was from that damn wolf mascot. He let me have it.

Thanks, Breck. I originally saw it on the Travel channel. They were doing a special on America's best water parks. It was number 3 on the list. I checked and admission is $29 for 48" and over. That's odd, I've never been to a park where they charged based on height. Unfortunately, I think all my kids are over that mark.

Heck, about a week after it happened, they started circulating TV Spots for the Flames with an epic Rocky style Montage of Harvey sewing his own tongue back on.

As far as I can remember, there was a streaker in 98, 02, and 06. Probably more.MacTavish ripped out Harvey's toungue on January 20th, 2003. By my calculations that incident didn't happen last season.

The most famous Calgary streaker was the guy in October 2002 who jumped over the boards wearing only red socks. He knocked himself unconcious when he fell to the ice after jumping the boards.
