You'd better draft an enforcer to protect "Killer" from that goon Sakic.

He got it done when it counted most! Those cheap bastards select:

Glenn Anderson, LW, Oilers/Maple Leafs/Blues

Although Glenn Anderson was expected to be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame (HHOF), he has not been entered as of 2006. Many supporters felt that his statistics - particularly in the playoffs - warranted inclusion. However, his playing career was clouded by problems relating to the media, and his retirement has been marred by documented failures to make child support payments.

Anderson was noted for his aggressive "to the net" playing style, typifying the NHL power forward in the early 1980s. As an NHL player, he scored 498 goals and 601 assists in 1129 regular season games, and added another 93 goals and 121 assists in 225 playoff games. Noted as a "clutch" player, he was able to score key goals when the team most needed them. He scored 5 playoff overtime goals, second only to Maurice Richard's 6. On top of that he had 17 playoff game winning goals, good for 5th in the all time history of the NHL.

5th all time in playoff goals
4th all time in playoff points
7th all time in playoff assists

When it comes to scoring clutch goals, there was no Oiler greater than Glenn Anderson. Not even Jari Kurri, Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier could match Anderson’s flair for the dramatic. His five career playoff overtime goals is second only to Maurice Richard’s six OT game-winners in National Hockey League (NHL) history. His 17 playoff game-winning goals places him fifth on the NHL’s all-time list.

Glenn AndersonAnderson, born in Vancouver on October 2, 1960, first showed his skills in the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics. Anderson was one of the most impressive forwards in Team Canada’s lineup. Playing at the University of Denver, Anderson attracted the attention of the Oilers’ scouts the year before and drafted him with the team’s fourth pick in the 1979 draft.

He debuted with the Oilers in 1980-81 and impressed by scoring 30 goals in just 58 games with the club. Anderson was famous for his straight-line skating speed and his uncanny ability to stop and turn on a dime. Confident of his abilities, Anderson would often skate full-bore towards the net, and intimidate the opposing goaltender in the process. Glenn AndersonAnderson was so confident he could cut away from the net at the last possible second, he played his own personal games of "chicken" with opposing net minders.

Anderson would remain with the Oilers until 1990-91, with a brief curtain call before his retirement in 1996. Much of his Oilers career was successful: he won five Cups with the Oilers, reached the 50-goal plateau twice (he scored 54 times in both 1983-84 and 1985-86) and registered an impressive 906 career points with the Oilers in 845 career games with the team.

Although a good player on the ice, Anderson was always a loose cannon off it, as he would regularly infuriate coach and general manager Glen Sather with his antics in practice. He would also famously use a take-life-as-it-comes attitude with reporters who covered the team. But when it came to game time, his intensity was never questioned.

After leaving the Oilers, Anderson spent parts of three seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs, before moving on to New York. Anderson won a sixth Stanley Cup with the New York Rangers in 1994, and also spent time with the St. Louis Blues. He finished his career earning 1,099 points.

Glenn Anderson also played one season at the University of Denver.

As for my pick, Slap, by being the first to take a backup goalie, scared me into selecting the netminder I've been holding out so long on. I'll take G - Grant Fuhr (Oilers/Maple Leafs/Sabres/Blues).

The amazingly quick, acrobatic and fun to watch Fuhr is the perfect goalie for the run and gun style my team is going to play. Just like in Edmonton he is going to be called upon to make a lot of tough saves, but just like in Edmonton he'll receive a ton of goal support.

He was a first round pick of Edmonton in 1981 and was also selected by the MLB San Diego Padres as a catcher.

Fuhr set (and holds) the NHL record for points by a goaltender in 1983-'84 with 14.

In 1995-'96 Fuhr set the single season record for games played in a season (79) and consecuvtive games played in a season (76).

Fuhr won 5 Stanley Cups with the Oilers, though he was the main postseason goalie for 4 of those teams with Bill Ranford getting the call in 1990.

He played in the 2003 Heritage Classic MegaStars game (played outdoors at Edmonton's Commonwealth Stadium in front of 57,000 fans) and helped shutout the Canadiens. Fuhr made some incredible saves in the game and many thought he looked like he could still play in the NHL at 41 years old.

The Kings Select.....Right Winger Richard Winston "Dickie" Moore.


Moore going for the goal.

played with the Montreal Canadiens from 1951 to 1963. Moore started playing with the Montreal Jr. Royals for three seasons from 1947 to 1950, and made his debut with the Montreal Canadiens in the middle of the 1951-52 season. Moore had played on two Memorial Cup winners, one with the Montreal Royals in 1949 and Montreal Junior Canadiens the following year. He was known for his hard accurate shot and his ability to stickhandle the puck. He twice won the Art Ross Memorial Trophy as the league's leading scorer. Dickie Moore broke Gordie Howe's record of 95 total points in a regular season play with 41 goals and 55 assists.

Moore won the Stanley Cup for the first time in 1953, and a member of the Montreal Canadiens Monthey won 5 consecutive cups in a row from 1956-1960. He retired the following season, but came back after a year's hiatus to play for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Another two year break saw Moore return to play 27 games for the St. Louis Blues.

The Kings Select.....Defenseman Marcel Pronovost.


n 1950 the Red Wings were in a tough semi-final series with the Toronto Maple Leafs when Gordie Howe was seriously injured. Red Kelly, a defender, was thrust into duty as a forward and Pronovost was called up from Omaha to take Kelly's place on the blue line. His name was engraved on the Stanley Cup when the Red Wings recovered from Howe's loss to defeat the Leafs and then the Rangers to win the championship. Pronovost was in the minors for part of the next season but won a permanent job with Detroit in 1951-52. He would win the Cup three more times with the Wings, garner seven regular-season titles and be on four consecutive league All-Star Teams including the First Team in 1960 and 1961.

A player like Pronovost, who delivered hits and took even more on his rushes, could expect to receive a daunting array of injuries. In one three-game stretch with the Red Wings, his face was struck by seemingly every conceivable hard surface in a rink - the puck, when his own goalie attempted to clear it; an opponent's stick, though not on purpose; and, on a memorable dive through two defenders, the ice, the net and then the boards. He had four long cuts requiring stitches and a broken nose from the week's work. He estimated at the end of his career that he had broken his nose 14 times, and the list of his many aches and pains reads like a medical exam for trauma care.

In 1965-66, Pronovost was sent to the Toronto Maple Leafs in an eight-player deal that involved Andy Bathgate's going to Detroit. Pronovost joined a solid core of defenders in Toronto and was an integral part of the Over-the-Hill-Gang that won Toronto's last Stanley Cup in 1967 under coach Punch Imlach. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1978.

I'm back, with a huge thanks to CO for making some spectacular picks for me. I was glad to see the Iginla pick made such a splash. Love the Footer, Kovalchuk picks.

Sorry I went off and didn't post in the thread that CO was picking for me.

Glad you like the picks. I made an oops and accidentally deleted the PM you sent me with your preferences, but I remembered some of the guys from your list (Modano, Iginla).

Glad you're back. Hope you had a nice vacation.

That's fine. The two you picked were better than some on my list!

I had a decent vacation. No one threw up in the car, that's the best part. Second best part, we didn't hit anything.

I made my family take a tour of the Pepsi Center while we were there...it was great. I was super bummed they wouldn't let us in to see the home locker rooms though, or that Joe Sakic didn't somehow drop in. I wish the ice would have been up too. It was cool all in all. That's one nice place there.

I'll take LW - Clark Gillies (Islanders, Sabres).

Gillies was a big power forward during the Islanders dynasty days and will skate with the same center he skated with back then, Bryan Trottier.






Mats Sundin - Mario Lemieux - Guy Lafleur
Valery Kharmalov - Joe Sakic - Pavel Bure
Clark Gillies - Bryan Trottier - (RW)

Larry Robinson - Brian Leetch
Guy Lapointe - Scott Niedermayer

Wow. This kind of draft has been easier with football (I know more about it) and baseball (because my Dad knows a ton about it.) My hockey knowledge is limited, so I'm having to research a loooong while to find guys that most of you prolly already know. Anyway, I think I found a real winner with my next selection. He'll fit nicely on my grind line with Probert, maybe calm him down a bit.

Those Cheap Bastards select:

Dit Clapper, RW/D, Bruins

While demonstrating a high level of skill both as a defenseman and as a forward, Aubrey "Dit" Clapper became one of the league's most versatile performers. In a career that lasted two decades, he forged a reputation as a tenacious yet honest competitor. He rarely looked for trouble on the ice, but if the game turned rough, he was one of the league's more accomplished pugilists. Throughout his pro tenure, Clapper was a respected leader on the ice and in the dressing room. This quality was an asset after he retired and become a coach in the NHL and the American Hockey League.

After a year of seasoning with the Boston Tigers of the CanAm league, Clapper was sold to the parent club in October 1927, and he'd remain in the Bruins' lineup for the next 20 years - becoming the first 20-year man in NHL history. As an experiment, Boston coach Art Ross used Clapper as a right wing, and Clapper adjusted well to his new position. He scored a key goal in the Bruins' first-ever Stanley Cup win in 1928-29, which came at the expense of the New York Rangers in a best-of-three finals.

Eventually Clapper formed the ever-dangerous Dynamite Line with Cooney Weiland and Dutch Gainor. This unit reached its zenith during the 1929-30 season when it led Boston to an unprecedented 38-5-1 regular-season mark. Clapper scored 41 goals in 44 games, second only to Weiland's 43. In 1931 and 1935 Clapper was chosen as the right wing on the NHL Second All-Star Team.

By the 1937-38 season, the Boston defense corps was in need of an overhaul. Meanwhile, the Kraut Line of Milt Schmidt, Woody Dumart and Bobby Bauer had taken on the lion's share of the scoring chores. Clapper was therefore moved back to his original position on defense, and the reassignment inspired him to play some of the best hockey of his career. The work of Clapper and Eddie Shore was crucial to Boston's win over the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1939 Stanley Cup finals, and between 1939 and 1941 he was named to the NHL First All-Star Team three consecutive times.

Clapper demonstrated his well-known sportsmanship when he scored his 200th career goal at Maple Leaf Gardens on January 8, 1941. After the game, he presented the stick he used to reach this milestone to Maple Leafs assistant general manager Frank Selke as a token of his admiration. Later that year, Clapper contributed five playoff assists as the Bruins won their third Stanley Cup by sweeping Detroit in four straight games.

During the 1941-42 season, Clapper suffered a severed tendon and it was believed that the injury would end his career. Typically, Clapper's resilience and determination inspired him to return the following year with his customary effective play. After the 1943-44 schedule, Clapper was chosen to the NHL Second All-Star Team. In 1945-46, he assumed the role of player-coach and guided the Bruins to a Stanley Cup finals against the eventual champions, the Montreal Canadiens. The following year, unhappy with his diminishing ability, the 41-year-old retired as a player six games into the season.

In an emotional ceremony at the Boston Garden on February 12, 1947, Clapper was honored for his multitude of accomplishments and the Bruins retired his number 5 sweater. In all, Clapper was responsible for 228 goals and 474 points in the regular season as well as 13 playoff goals. He was Boston captain from 1932 to 1938 and again from 1939 until his retirement in 1947. He also served as the Bruins' coach for four seasons and led the team to 78 regular-season wins.

A member of Canada's Sports Hall of Fame, Clapper was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1947 when the customary waiting period was waived in recognition of his obvious greatness.

Thanks 24. You've made solid picks. When I can nab a guy you liked I feel a bit more confident.

Dit Clapper is a solid hockey player. If I could compare him to a modern day player it would be Steve Yzerman.
