    We've had this topic before. "Didn't even allow body checking" isn't correct.

    The Blades select 6'4 tall center Bobby Smith, who was 9th in NHL career playoff scoring when he retired, tied with Gordie Howe and Mike Bossy with 160 playoff points due to repeated great postseasons despite only winning one Stanley Cup. He was twice top-10 in NHL regular season assists and his career total is 60th all time, between Brad Park and Jarome Iginla, though Ryan Getzlaf and Nicklas Backstrom should pass him soon.

    [​IMG]
    He and his wingman Naslund were 1st & 2nd in Habs regular season scoring every one of his four full seasons in Montreal, 1986-1989, he scoring in the 1986 Stanley Cup victorious run 15 points (3rd in scoring) and leading all Habs in scoring with 19 points in their 1989 finals run. So, if you are a Habs fan, you should know him.

    He had been drafted 1st overall after breaking the OHL scoring record. He then won the NHL's Calder trophy and two years later led Minnesota in regular season scoring and playoff assists to the franchise's first-ever Stanley Cup finals, he scoring 25 points in 19 playoff games.

    Again, no full bodychecking. It was so far behind what was being played in Canada that you can barely call it hockey.

    If that's what you believe, then of course none of these players belong in the MLD, let alone ATD.

    First pick - Arkady Chernyshev, Coach

    Chernyshev NOT Tarasov was the officially listed head coach of all those great late 60s/early 70s Soviet teams.

    Tarasov was the assistant coach (though he did seem to run practices, so it seems to have been more like a co-head coach arrangement).

    Chernyshev was more diplomatic than Tarasov and less of a hardass to the players, and he will fill that role here as Jack Adam's assistant coach.

    I believe you’re back on the clock again, since TDMM made his two selections.

    VI’s selection in round 23 was Bobby Smith (to be added to the OP) and can you please correct the spelling of Alec Connell as well? Thanks!

    D, Stefan Persson

    [​IMG]

    He stepped in to the Isles’ lineup as if he had played in the NHL for years, providing puckhandling and passing that belied his lack of North American experience. - NHL.com

    24 $PPP/82

    Shoots left, played RD. Perfect guy to cover for Barkley and Hartsburg- two injury prone players. He can play either side.


    Personal Info:

    Height: 6'1"
    Weight: 189lbs
    Shoots: Left
    Birth: December 22, 1954 Umea, Sweden


    NHL Accomplishments:

    Stanley Cup Champion 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983 (NY Isles)
    Stanley Cup Finalist 1984 (NY Isles)



    International Accomplishments:

    Selected for the 1981 Swedish Canada Cup Team


    Regular Season:

    Drafted in the 14th round during a time when NHL teams did not pay a lot of attention to overseas players, Stefan Persson stayed two more years at home before coming to North America. He impressed immediately:

    Source


    As a 23 year old rookie defenseman, Persson set the NHL record for assists by a defenseman with 50. His 56 points by a rookie defenseman is still a Isles team record.

    Source

    He would reach the 50 assist mark twice more during his career.


    Voting Records:

    Norris - 10, 15
    Post Season All Star - 9, 13, 14, 18


    Playoffs:

    Persson was a core member of the Islanders' dynasty and played for all four Stanley Cup championships as well as the Finalists team of 1984.

    Twice he scored 15 points in the playoffs and was a key member of the Isles dominant PP -- one of the team's strengths.

    Nordiques Find Isles Tough said:
    ...
    Quebec found hockey's newest dynasty tough to handle, losing 4-1
    ...
    Quebec now has something else to worry about -- the return of the Islanders' smooth Swedish defenseman, Stefan Persson.

    The Blades select Jeff Carter, the 6'3 214 lbs. right winger and center who's the two-time NHL leader in regular season game-winning goals (related: 2nd, 4th, 7th in NHL goals) over a span in which he had 996 shots over three regular seasons. In two of the following three postseasons he won two Stanley Cup championships, tied for the team lead in game winners the first victorious postseason, 2nd in points the other cup-winning postseason. The two-time world juniors all-star 1st round NHL pick who tied Lindros' Canadian WJC record for scoring, has had a successful 14+ year NHL career including eight hat tricks and was on Canada's top checking 2nd line in the 2014 Olympics, scoring 5 points in 6 tourney games, the highlight being a perfect cross crease pass to Toews to assist on the eventual game winner in the gold-medal game.

    Compared to the other centers that have been selected here, Carter seems greatly underqualified for this draft.

    It is. How much RW has he played? I think everything he's done of significance in the NHL has been at center, unless I'm mistaken.
