It's been a while, so what say we take another shot at a good old NHL draft?

Number of participants will be based on interest, hopefully there's a bunch. I figure we can do 20 rounds, solely NHL players, best team over three years, but I'm open to any suggestions (eg. number of rounds, participants, any stipulations, voting, etc.)

I promise it will be well run (I have nothing better to do) and a good time for all! So let's get to it.

Participants

- SuperMcGee 716-352-5469
- Xiomera 248-495-4260
- Chucky 226-919-4401
- Hines
- MJE
- Jensen
- Sniper
- sarf 626 484 5144
- djp 763.772.8961
- Todd Bertuzzi

You do rule McGee, so I'm in.

Jensen
01-10-2011, 12:20 AM
I'm good to go.

Xiomera

Can we institute a rule that says you can only draft 3 players from any one NHL team for your roster?

This becomes less fun if there's a team of, say, 10 Pittsburgh Penguins on it.

Why does it matter? Draft who you want to draft.

I support McGee's awesomeness and accept his invitation to this draft.

Xiomera
01-10-2011, 09:09 AM
Because it makes it better. Or would that be too much thinking for you?

Sniper
01-10-2011, 09:17 AM
Because it makes it better. Or would that be too much thinking for you?

Yeah, because of all the times that I drafted multiple players from the same team. If anyone's going to be challenged, it's going to be you with the Red Wings.

Looks like we have 10 solid guys. I won't keep Tim out if he wants to be in, though. So I'll leave this open until I get back from an oddly timed meal and randomize an order when I get back. Probably make a selection thread, too. We should be good to start in the evening.

I think the certain number of players from a given team is kind of unnecessary.

Put up any other ideas or concerns while I get some food in me.

MichaelJordanEberle (sabf)
01-10-2011, 03:13 PM
Yeah, I don't think any of us are gonna draft 4-5 guys from one team anyway. Lord knows I'm not drafting 4-5 guys from the Devils. There's 2 on my radar right now, max. Well maybe 3. Maybe.

Xiomera

Right, because I have a track record of drafting 20 Red Wings to my team ..... that surely is the way to win a popularity contest like this when voting time comes ...

This becomes a very forgettable and boring draft without some interesting ripples in the rules.

Xiomera
01-10-2011, 04:41 PM
When does this begin? 10 teams is plenty.

SuperMcGee
01-10-2011, 05:19 PM
We can start right now, I guess.

I'll make up a selection thread in a minute. Here's the order that was generated:


There were 10 items in your list. Here they are in random order:

- djp
- Todd Bertuzzi
- sarf
- Xiomera
- Sniper
- SuperMcGee (this guy rules)
- MJE
- Hines
- Jensen
- ChuckyTimestamp: 2011-01-10 23:16:49 UTC

Hines
01-10-2011, 05:20 PM
I never pick near the top. :(

SuperMcGee
01-10-2011, 05:21 PM
I figure we'll handle the voting at the end, ranking the other 9 teams however you like them.

Maybe let any other interested hockey fans send in some rankings, as well.

MichaelJordanEberle (sabf)
01-10-2011, 05:24 PM
Hey guys, i dunno how fast youre gonna progress through this, but im in class till 730, so if you guys get to me before then, i might not be able to pick in that timely of a fashion. I will definitely make it by 830 thought, hopefully before then. Im on my phone so yeah

If you trade me your first rounder this draft and a first rounder in the next NHL draft, I will draft Kessel for you and trade him to you.

SuperMcGee

For serio.

I don't expect a big problem with the guys that are in this. If anyone wants to follow the djp/sarf example and leave a phone number, I could keep track of those for optimal smoothness.

Btw how are we treating the oldies? Same as usual(best team over the next 3 years) or are we just going with a best team at this moment in time?

01-12-2011, 12:03 AM
I had it as a best team over next 3 years type of draft. Of course, there are some men that are just unaffected by age.

We need a two hour clock at the very minimum.

Better yet, ask people to actually leave a list of their phone number to text.

djp
01-13-2011, 03:56 PM
I don't understand why people don't leave their number. Nobody here is going to harrass you. Nobody here is going to put your number in a telemarketing scheme. You don't even have to text back. You just look at your phone, and say, ****, I'm up, I better log on and pick.

I almost took him this morning, too, when I decided on Kesler instead. I was going to take him instead of JMFJ, but the combination of star hockey player, folk rock musician and first black heavyweight champion was too much to pass up at this point.

01-13-2011, 05:13 PM

I don't think anybody could fault you for taking those two American stud boy studs.

But I have a beautiful pair of centers now for not having taken one in the first round, which is nice.

I have every other day this week, but still. I probably had the best game of my life yesterday, I don't want to lose this magic.

Okay, that's a lie. I want to sleep until it's time to go to the movies. I'll probably force myself to stay up and watch us give up 5 to the Hurricanes, though. Sigh.

Meh, he's only 31. Has 3 years left in him. That whole team has been bad this year. I'm not going to let one bad year get in the way of consistent 85 point seasons. This whole draft pool is pretty f'd up from what we are used to, sort of a transitional year in the NHL I feel like.

Truth. I was hoping he'd slip through the cracks a bit and I'd be able to scoop him since he hasn't been loud quite yet.

In related news, that was also my strategy for a lot of guys. I need to brush up on my draft skillz.

I was looking to take him, but then I looked at my phone and saw that sarf had texted me a half hour earlier saying he wanted him. Oh well. Hemsky and Vanek are sexy enough for me.

Todd Bertuzzi is on the clock for another 15 minutes before he is skipped and DJP can pick.

Do you people not consult the list of who has been selected?

Kris Letang was taken in Round 3.

Sniper is OTC, but already skipped once today. McGee can probably pick now as well.

01-16-2011, 06:31 PM
Been another hour since the last pick (though Sarf picked a previously-selected player).

By my count, MJE is on the clock.

I probably would've taken Staal if not Edler. Staal is a great complement to a lot of the offensive types that go in these drafts, but Edler is impressive all around. Both are great young players.

SuperMcGee

It seems like forwards are going to run a lot more thin than defense, to me. But I already have 4 defensemen. I'm glad to have Clowe, he's having a good year and most people wouldn't complain about him being in their bottom-6.

Jensen

Since he's only on emergency call-up basis, Schenn probably shouldn't be eligible. I can see how this would be an issue and it's a bit of a gray area. I'll say he's not eligible.

Bogo has been terrible ever since he injured his leg, particularly this year. Only reason he would've went any higher was based on his potential as the #3 overall pick.

SuperMcGee
01-23-2011, 11:18 PM
Yeah, Bogo's struggles make me a little sad. I was huge on him coming out. It's been a disappointing, even worrisome run for him the past couple of years. But he's only 20. Still, if I was taking a young defenseman at the end of this draft, I might have gone with Hamonic.

Xiomera
01-23-2011, 11:25 PM
You guys should consider doing PP, PK and shootout lineups on your roster page.

How are we handling the voting?

MichaelJordanEberle (sabf)
01-23-2011, 11:28 PM
Way I look at it is if he overcomes all this and excels, he can be dominant. If not, he's my 6th defenseman and it doesn't hurt too much, especially since I have 3 guys capable of eating huge minutes(Keith, Johnson, Martin) and two other guys who will be huge minute eaters soon(Subban, Karlsson). That and I don't know who Hamonic is! Also since I already had Karlsson and Subban, I wanted someone who was big and could put da team on his back physically. All in all, I like my team.

TO NHL 11!!

Not bad, it's really old up front though, and you don't seem to have a lot of upcoming depth to overcome that. Guys like St. Louis, Heatley, Briere, Gagne, Marleau and Savard aren't nearly going to be the same in three years. Nice defense, really underrated third pairing, I love some Scuderi.

Miller and Howard is a nasty combo too, and there is a lot of talent with the forwards. If you tell Lucic he isn't Gretzky and have him actually hit and fight not just try to score goals you could have yourself a very third line along with those sweet first two.

FINAL RESULTS


The votes have been tallied and we have our winner. He's kind of a turd, but he took the crown by a decent margin. So congratulations to...


DJP!

Mr. Hockey took this one without much difficulty, receiving 60% of the first-place votes and never being ranked lower than 3rd. I attribute all of his success to the random draft order.

In second place with decent comfort was none other than...

Todd Bertuzzi-Aasen-Wright-Phillips

Todd's team was very strong and youthful down the middle and loaded with solid two-way players. It was enough to set him apart from the clutterbuck of teams that followed in the rankings.

And rounding out the Top 5 was actually a three-way tie, including one very sexy draft organizer:

T-3. Jensen
T-3. Xiomera
T-3. McGee


These three American enthusiasts could be found in most people's rankings, though with only one first place vote between them. I personally believe Jensen had one of the best teams, but certainly the best collection of people that are totally ******* awesome, as I often found myself cursing him for taking the likes of Suter, Benn, Wilson, Kulikov, Backes, ...

Again, every team appeared on at least one set of rankings and all of the teams looked very good. The rankings were kind of all over the place. The team that finished with the 6th-most points actually received two first place votes, and the 7th ranked team got all of their points out of some 2nd-place votes. Good draft!

I think I had a pretty great defense in this thing, probably the thing I liked best about my team. I loved the back of my powerplay units, especially. Yandle, Richards, Edler, and Pronger is the stuff dreams are made of.

In all honesty I think my D probably tops yours. Chara is thebomb. Green and Staal is a pairing that dreams are made of. Pietrangelo and OEL will be faptastic in two years

I just don't see it. You can only put Chara clearly in front of Pronger if you think Chris is due for massive breakdowns in the near future. Timonen is faptastic as it is and that's not all going away in those same two years, while those two young guys paired together would have some tough growing pains. Staal is the guy to pair with Green, yes, but Yandle has taken over Green as the highest scoring defenseman out there and is not as much of a joke in his own end. Hammer is a steady partner for any defender and I love him as a 3rd-line guy here. Regehr and Bouwmeester work well together in their separate ways over in Calgary and both can complement our big guns very well as we have them doing. Edler was having a fantastic year before his recent injury, he's become one of the best all around defensemen in the game and I feel it to be a luxury to have him on my second pairing.

Woo! Thanks fellas. I believe that is 3 for my last 3 in hockey drafts :)

First pick does help, especially since Crosby has been so thoroughly dominant. I did like my entire team though. 4th line is pretty sexy.

My team is better. I have Darren Helm, and god knows Helm > Crosby.

Good stuff guys, had a lot of fun. Need something to do over the all-star break now, maybe a prospects draft? I don't know really, just something to think about.

Under 25 draft would be better imo.
