    Picks:

    G Glenn Hall

    [​IMG]

    First-Team All Star: 7 (1957, 1958, 1960, 1963, 1964, 1966, 1969)
    Second-Team All Star: 4 (1956, 1961, 1962, 1967)
    Vezina Trophy: 3 (1963, 1967, 1969)
    Conn Smythe: 1 (1968)
    Calder Trophy: 1956
    Stanley Cups: 1 (1961)

    Hall was an innovater, credited as the first to use the butterfly style now prevalent across the NHL - this despite the fact that he didn't wear a mask. He was a post-season All Star a remarkable 11 times, a record among goalies. He also started 502 consecutive games (plus 50 more during the playoffs) which attests to his durability. He's the ultimate combination of longevity and dominance.

    D Earl Seibert

    [​IMG]

    First-Team All Star: 4 (1935, 1942, 1943, 1944)
    Second-Team All Star: 6 (1936, 1937, 1938, 1939, 1940, 1941)
    Stanley Cups: 2 (1933, 1938)

    Seibert was one of the toughest players in his day - even Eddie Shore once commented he was the only man he was afraid to fight. He played a strong positional game defensively and was an excellent shot blocker. He also had a quick first pass and was underrated offensively, although that wasn't really his game. He was also a key contributor on two Stanley Cup winners, and even finished second on the Blackhawks in scoring in the 1938 playoffs.

    C Edouard "Newsy" Lalonde

    [​IMG]

    Art Ross Trophy: 2 (1919, 1921)
    Stanley Cups: 1 (1916)

    Newsy was a scoring champion five times in different leagues and was the preeminent offensive talent of his time. A combination of speed, skill and toughness allowed Newsy to excel at every aspect of the game. He also brought leadership as the captain of the Montreal Canadiens for 6 years from 1915 to 1921, and leading them to the Stanley Cup in 1916. He was a clutch playoff performer and also holds the record for goals in a single game, with 9. In addition to his two Art Rosses, he also had a second and a fourth place finish in his five years in the NHL.

    D/F Fred "Cyclone" Taylor

    [​IMG]

    Stanley Cups: 2 (1909, 1915)

    Cyclone Taylor was another of early hockey's true superstars. One of the fastest skaters the game has ever seen, he was a dynamic offensive player with a dazzling array of moves. He was also incredibly versatile, capable of playing forward, defense, or rover with equal efficiency. Taylor has the remarkable distinction of being named to the First All-Star 18 straight times, or every year that he played hockey.

    LW Doug Bentley

    [​IMG]

    First-Team All Star: 3 (1943, 1944, 1947)
    Second-Team All Star: 1 (1949)
    Art Ross Trophy: 1 (1943)

    Doug Bentley, despite his slight frame, was known as a "complete" player. With speed to burn and nose for the net, Bentley was both a great playmaker and goal scorer. Unfortunately for Bentley, he was stuck on some very bad Blackhawks teams, and as a result, is one of the best forwards to have never won the Stanley Cup. He was a top-10 point scorer 6 times, including 4 top-5 finishes. He also led the league in goal scoring twice and assists twice. His strong two way play is something we covet on the Clippers.

    C Adam Oates

    [​IMG]

    Second-Team All Star: 1 (1991)
    Lead the League in Assists 3 Times (only Orr and Gretzky did it more)
    Was Top-5 in Assists 9 Times (only Howe and Gretzky did it more)

    Adam Oates is quite simply one of the greatest playmakers of all time. With his innate ability to make his linemates better, Oates is an extremely valuable player to have. In addition to his excellent offensive abilities, Oates was a very good defensive player, capable of playing on the PK and in late game situations. He's also a top-notch faceoff man, one of the best of his generation, if not one of the best all-time.

    D Allan Stanley

    [​IMG]

    Second-Team All Star: 3 (1960, 1961, 1966)
    Stanley Cups: 4 (1962, 1963, 1964, 1967)

    Old 'Snowshoes' wasn't the most fleet of foot defenseman in his day, but he made up for it with excellent positional defensive play, often doing the small things that few would notice. He combined this defensive play with a touch of physical play and an underrated offensive game. An excellent passer, Stanley was a top-5 scorer from the backend 5 times in the regular season and was top-4 7 times in the playoffs. Twice a runner up for the Norris, Stanley also has four Stanley Cups to his name.

    LW Roy Conacher

    [​IMG]

    Art Ross: 1 (1949)
    First-Team All Star: 1 (1949)
    Stanley Cups: 2 (1939, 1941)

    The brother of Lionel and Charlie, he's one of the most underrated players of all time, IMO. Despite missing four seasons in the middle of his prime fighting in the war, Conacher was able to still finish top-2 in goal scoring a remarkable 5 times, top-10 8 times and also won an Art Ross. He was also a big man, though not as much of a power forward as Charlie, he was capable physically and in the corners.

    LW/D Babe Siebert

    [​IMG]

    Hart Trophy: 1 (1937)
    First-Team All Star: 3 (1936, 1937, 1938)
    Stanley Cups: 2 (1926, 1933)

    Siebert was one of the toughest players of his day. Originally a LW playing on the S Line with Hooley Smith and Nels Stewart, Siebert was known for his strong defensive play and ability to rush the puck. Half way through his career, he was traded back to the Canadiens, and was moved back to defense, where he won three consecutive First-Team All Star selections and a Hart trophy.

    D Sylvio Mantha

    [​IMG]

    Second-Team All Star: 2 (1931, 1932)
    Stanley Cups: 3 (1924, 1930, 1931)

    Mantha was one of the best defensive defensemen of his time. A two time post-season All Star, he was the defensive conscience on the high flying Morenz/Joliat Habs. Also an adept offensive player, Mantha was a more than capable passer and clutch goal scorer. A great leader, he was the Habs Captain for 9 seasons. He's also a natural right handed shot/right side D-man.

    RW Terry O'Reilly

    [​IMG]

    An extremely tough player with a 'take no prisoners' type attitude, O'Reilly was the heart and soul of the late 70's/early 80's Bruins teams. Despite his reputation as a grinder, O'Reilly was a top-10 scorer in 1977/1978. O'Reilly was also an excellent defensive player, often responsible for shutting down the opposition's best.

    LW Don Marcotte

    A tireless worker, Marcotte was one of the best defensive players of his day, capable of logging huge minutes on the PK. He was also a relentless forechecker and a more than capable hitter. Despite usually taking on the other team's top line, he managed to be a consistent 50-60 point scorer through out his career. He also has his name on the Stanley Cup twice.

    RW Didier Pitre

    Pitre will fit in perfectly on our top line as he was the long time wing man of Newsy Lalonde. A big man even by today's standards, Pitre was also a phenominal skater, and one of the few big RW's with the scoring ability and speed to keep up with Lalonde and Bentley. He was arguably the greatest scorer in the NHA, and was a top-5 scorer once and a top-10 scorer once in the NHL, despite those years coming at the end of his career. He won one Stanley Cup. His chemistry with Lalonde should give me potent first line.

    LW Paul Thompson

    One of the most underrated players of all-time, Thompson was one of the most consistent stars of the thirties. He was an excellent defensive player and had one post-season All Star selection and 3 Stanley Cups. He was a top-10 point scorer 5 times (top-5 twice) and had 4 top-10 goal scoring seasons. He'll bring great two-way play to our third line.

    RW Bobby Rousseau

    An excellent defensive player often responsible for shutting down the opposition’s best, Rousseau was top-5 in assists three times and top-10 in points twice. He also was a big part of four cup winners and has a post-season All Star selection to his name. He’ll fit in perfectly on our third line with Thompson, providing extremely strong two way play.

    Coach Hap Day

    Though he wasn’t the longest serving coach, Day was incredibly successful. In his 10 seasons as the Leafs’ coach, he won 5 Stanley Cups (and was 5-0 in Cup Finals). His focus as a coach was on defense, and his teams were always the best prepared teams in the league. He rewarded hard work, as status alone wouldn’t get you ice time. His philosophy fits into the group we’re assembling on the Clippers, with a top-notch goaltender, a strong defense corps and a forward group filled with players who are very good to excellent defensively. Ted Kennedy was once quoted as saying, “We won five championships basically because of our coaching.”

    C Doug Risebrough

    A chippy and agitating player, Risebrough was usually dispatched to match up against the opponent’s top line. He was able to get under their skin while contributing 50 to 60 points a season. He has four Cup wins to his name, and also made it to the Cup finals as the captain of the Flames.

    RW Odie Cleghorn

    A rough and tumble competitor (though he didn't have the same temper as his brother) he'll make room for Oates and Conacher. He'll also be able to chip in offensively, as he was a 4 time top-10 point scorer, as well as a 4 time top-10 goal scorer (including three top-5 finishes) and has his name on one Cup. He was also a very productive player in the NHA and likely would be better remembered if he had spent more time in the NHL.

    D Bill Hajt

    Hajt provides a steadying influence on the back end. He seemed to thrive in a role when paired with an offensive wizard, so he should make a great partner for Cyclone Taylor. He's a big body, though he wasn't overly physical, he'll play great positional defense and allow Taylor to utilize his rushing skills. For a player that usually played against the opposition's best, he also has one of the top 25 +/-'s of all time, which is impressive in context. He also took very few penalties, meaning he is an extremely reliable player.

    G Normie Smith

    While Smith may not be the best goaltender left, he has shown that he is able to carry a team to the Cup, given by his retroactive Conn Smythe for 1936. He posted a 0.20 GAA during the Finals, including an 89 stop performance in a 1-0 OT win. The following season he was a First-Team All Star and Vezina winner, backstopping the Red Wings once again to victory. Busher Jackson was quoted as saying "That bird Normie Smith robbed me more than any goaltender I ever fired at." Unfortunately for Smith, a spat with Jack Adams essentially ended his career leading to a trade to the Bruins. He was stuck behind Frank Brimsek which led to his premature retirement.

    D Ted Harris

    Harris gives us a doubly tough defender, one of the best fighters of the 60's and a player who can play a regular shift on defense. He was a member of 4 Stanley Cup winning teams and was a Second-Team All Star once. At worst, he can sub in for Hajt as our sixth d-man if we're up against a more physical team. In addition, he's capable enough to allow us to move Cyclone Taylor up front if we need more scoring on our top lines.

    C Phil Goyette

    Goyette is an excellent defensive player and PK'er. He won four Cups with the Canadiens as a key shut down player. Stuck behind Beliveau, Richard and Backstrom, he wasn't able to display his offensive talent. After leaving the Canadiens, he blossomed as an excellent offensive player, finishing as a top-10 scorer three times and was an All Star four times. He brings strong two-way play that should complement Rousseau and Thompson on our third line.

    RW Marian Hossa

    A two time top-10 goal scorer, Hossa provides good all around play. He can fit in anywhere from our second to our fourth line if need be and chip in offensively while playing solid defense.

    Clippers Team Strategy

    I want to make a note of a couple things that may seem odd about my team by explaining several of our planned strategies.

    First, it seems like a waste of Taylor's talent having him on the third defensive pairing. What you will likely see from our team on average is Seibert playing 25 mins/night, Stanley, Mantha and Siebert 22 mins/night, Taylor 16 and Hajt 13. Depending on the situation, Taylor will either see his minutes bumped up on the backend or will spend his remaining ice time along side Bentley and Lalonde up front. This creates a situation where both Pitre and Cleghorn will play less minutes than you might expect from first/second line players (as Pitre will also play along side Oates/Conacher).

    Second, in terms of matching, we feel that we have two lines capable of playing a shut down role, and both will match up against the other teams best depending on the opponent. Against teams with gritty first lines like Vancouver and Edmonton, you'll see Marcotte-Risebrough-O'Reilly playing the majority of the game against that line. Conversely, against speedier, skill based first lines, Thompson-Goyette-Rousseau will get the matchup. In terms of defense pairings, Stanley will be paired with Seibert in the first case and Mantha in the second.

    If we feel there is a need for more offense, you'll see Harris draw in and Taylor moved to the first line along side Bentley/Lalonde and Pitre moved down to the second line. You'll also see all four lines rolled fairly regularly.

    -#11 Daniel Alfredsson "He's one of the best all-around, two-way players in the game. He's an excellent skater, a creative puckhandler and an opportunistic scorer. He's nearly as good a finisher as he is a playmaker. Plus, he kills penalties, he'll give up his body to block shots and he's got a lot of grit to him. He's not a huge banger, but he plays through pain and gives you a point a night. He's as honest as the day is long." - Ultimate Sports Hockey 2000-2001


    #14 Dave AndreychukGilmour to Andreychuck He scores is a common refrain! He is a true finisher A big winger with good hockey sense around the net. His major asset is tremendous hand skills in traffic that allow him to bang home rebounds. He is also a great special teams player.

    #21 Bobby Baun A prototypical defensive defenceman his game? Look up the term "hard rock" in the dictionary and there would be a picture of #21. Also check out "irrepressible". He was a force to be reckoned with on the Leaf defence. His philosophy was "You don't have to kill every forward coming down the ice, just slow them up a little." Few opposing players coming into the Leafs end of the rink ever came in with their heads down against Baun.
    Baun played a lot of minutes for a very long time, he could hit like Scott Stevens !! As for his fighting, he always showed up for the fight, he was fearless.


    -#20 Mike Bossy-Mike Bossy was magic on ice. Bossy game was one
    of suddeness and speed. He was a wonderous apparation: time and time again Mike would seem to materilize unchecked, in perfect scoring position with the puck dangerously positioned on his stick. He would use sleight of hand when he would shoot the puck. He doesn't even look like he touches it. Poof: red light. Just perfecto magic on ice! Bossy usedhuman nature to suceeed on the ice,. He used other players beleifs that he was tied up, that the penalty was almost over and that the epriod would eventually would play out. Alot ofplayers look at the clock and say it is too late to score. With mike it was never too late!He was a devestating marksman.He scored 2 cup winnign goals.He is the only player to do in back to back seasons.

    -#21 Guy Carbonneau - He was also one of the league's most persistent and effective shadows: he always played against the league's skilled players in an era when offense meant everything. His skating was well above average, although he didn't have straight-line speed. He had a nice wrister that seemed to catch goalies off guard.He could hang on to the puck like it was glued to his stick. Great vision and understanding of the game made him one of the most dominant defensive forward of his area. Carboneau played his best hockey alongside Mike McPhee. They were an fiesty, dangerous duo who could take care of both ends of the rink.

    -#3 Zdeno CharaA workhorse that loves to hit people. Plays with tremendous intensity and grit. Is a very popular player in the dressing room. Possesses underrated offensive ability.He is a mean uncompromising crease clearer blessed with supreme size strength andreach. He boasta a overpowering shot and is a profocoent take charge puck mover due to his increasing mobility and surprising top flight speed.

    # 1 Alec Connell Alex personal trademark was a black cap which he wore while in goal to keep himself warm. His best of many great seasons was 1925-26 in Ottawa recording 15 shutouts and amassing a superb 1.12 goals-against average. Alex set and still holds an NHL record when in 1927-28 he recorded 6 straight shutouts and 461 consecutive scoreless minutes. His career goals-against average of 1.91 ties him with George Hainsworth for the lowest mark in NHL history. Won 2 Stanley Cups while playing with Ottawa (1927) and Montreal Maroons (1935)


    # 4 CG Drinkwater-One of the most versatile stars of the early days of the game, Graham Drinkwater was a fixture in the Montreal Victorias' lineup. He was a rare breed with an ability to function equally well at the defense and forward positions. Brilliant stickhandling, a natural scoring touch and team-permeating enthusiasm characterized Drinkwater's play. He was an integral component of the Montreal Victorias squad that became hockey's first dynasty with four Stanley Cup triumphs in the 1890s

    In 1895 Drinkwater scored nine goals in eight contests to help the Victorias win the Amateur Hockey Association of Canada championship, and the title earned the club the distinction of being holders of the Stanley Cup.

    Physically the biggest members of the team he was also a fine centerman.

    Graham Drinkwater's smooth-skating and well-rounded game made him one of the top stars during hockey's formative period. He was always a key player on the teams for which he played.

    Drinkwater took his rightful place in the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1950.Stanley Cup Champion in 1895 1896 1897 1898 1899

    -#9! Billy Gilmour Hamilton "Billy" Gilmour was one of the seven Gilmour brothers, three of whom played for the famed Silver Seven of Ottawa. He played on three Stanley Cup teams with the Ottawa Silver Seven in 1903, '04, and '05 and was also a member of the Cup winning Ottawa Senators in 1908-09. Gilmour was named to the Montreal City Hockey League first All-star team in 1907 and was an Eastern Canada Amateur Hockey Association first team All-star in 1908 after finishing the season with 11 goals in 11 games. Along with his scoring prowess, Gilmour was regarded as one of the greatest stickhandlers of all time. Gilmour served in World War I and had resided in Paris, France, prior to the outbreak of World War II before retiring to Mount Royal, Quebec.Billy G was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1962

    -#93 Doug Gilmour-He was the best player, pound for pound his october playing weight was 170 when the season started but it would get dangerously close to 160 by the time april rolled around. Dougie epitomizes how a small man can play at such a high level in the NHL. Dougie had a ferocity about him that belies his size. He played on the edge of rules, with a little late push here, a sneaky lilttle cuff there. On his best night Gilmour could get into a emotional zone that lifted him into a class with the all time NHL elite. You would see it in his first shift, if he theres an extra push of energy in his stride and if there was then you knew he would be a pain all night long and a force to be delat with. He was one of the few who was in the top five players in the league offensively and defensivley. Dougie needed to be hungry to thrive. He combined great vision and shifty skating to drive opponents nuts. Primarily a playmaker he needed wingers like Andreychuck or Wendel Clark to feed the puck too. When he wasn't attacking the opponents goal he was defending his own with relentless checking. He didn't just score big goals he scared the top players on every team. He was the heart and soul of Canadas team and became a national star and a beloved hockey legend.

    #11 Bill Hay - Bill joined the Chicago Black Hawks in 1959-60. He was a big strong centre with offensive flair..He played on the Hawks with fellow greats Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita, Elmer Vasco and Glenn Hall in net. In 70 games with the Hawks, he had 18 goals and 37 assists, and earned the Calder Memorial Trophy. He spent the rest of his NHL career in Chicago, helping his team win the Stanley Cup in 1960-61 while centering the million dollar line. He stayed with Chicago until 1967, consistently putting double digits in the point column

    #7 Tim Horton is regarded by many as the strongest man ever to lace up skates in the NHL. Strong beyond words, he would grab anyone foolish enough to invade his space on the ice and introduce him none too gently to the boards. He also earned a reputation as a peacekeeper over the course of his career, deterring opposition with a grasp known as the “Horton Bear Hug.” He was also a solid offensive threat and a strong skater with a cannon for a shot

    #33 Al Iafrate- - A gigantic defenceman who could skate like the wind, Al was a rugged d-man who could throw thunderous body checks when needed but his offensive game was the most important element of his play as he possessed copious amounts of raw skill. It took him four years to settle into the NHL, but he once he matured, Iafrate made a solid impact as a big leaguer. His talents were equal to that of the best defenceman in the nhl. He could be a human high light wheel The wild thing could lead your team to victory by taking over control of the game. He is perhaps most famous for his rocket slap shot that set the NHL Skills Competition record at 105.2 MPH.

    #15 Tomas Kaberle -Tomas kaberle has become an all round star on the blue line kabs has superior hockey sense and this allows him to play with a healthy self-confidence and collects points because he possesses tremendous hockey smarts and has the ability to find his teammates on the ice. A fluid elegant swift skater, he can wheel with the puck and loves to join the attack. Is an excellent accurate passer.Tomas Kaberle provides constant support for his team while becoming one of the top defencemen in the league.He is 4th all time in franchise scoring for a leafs defenceman.


    #8 Joe Klukay Stanley Cup wins with the Leafs.

    Klukay joined the powerful Toronto Maple Leafs in 1946 and promptly learned how to win and be a professional. He and linemate Nick Metz became the league's most effective penalty killing tandem on a team that won through discipline and defence. Led first by Syl Apps and then Teeder Kennedy, Toronto won three consecutive Stanley Cups from 1947 to 1949. Klukay also spent some time working alongside talented centre Max Bentley. Any serious Stanley Cup contender needs a crasher, a big intimdating forward who can turn a game's flow with one huge hit. The Toronto Maple Leafs were fortunate in 1946 to have found their crasher in Joe Klukay. Klukay was one of Leaf boss Conn Smythe's prize scoring prospects down on the farm. But Klukay soon found that the Leafs already had enough offense. He adjusted to become one of the top penalty-killers-defensive forwards to ever step on the ice.

    He showed himself to be a strong skater, one who prided himself on his mental toughness, his cool under fire. He never appeared to be out of place, playing an amazingly sound, technical brand of hockey.

    Were you protecting a one-goal lead with two minutes remaining? Klukay was your man! Using one part technique and one part barbarism


    -#25 Darren McCarty -He had great hands which he used equally well while scoring and scraping whenever called upon. Darren was sound defensively, played well within a system and was a great team player. He had excellent hitting ability and he usually protects his teammates.

    #1 Frank McCool - He was a talented enigmatic goalie who was so nervous before every game that he would vomit in between periods. Frank was discovered playing senior hockey in Calgary Alberta, his hometown, and was signed as a free agent by the Toronto Maple Leafs. McCOOL, nicknamed "Ulcers" because of his nervous condition, joined the Leafs and had a season to dream of. Playing every minute of the 50-game season, McCOOL led Toronto to a third place finish, and led the league in shutouts with four.


    -#27 Scott Niedermayer Possesses a terrific combination of vision and skating ability. Is one of the most mobile defensemen in the NHL. Has awesome recuperative ability in the defensive zone. Can put up points and lead by example.

    #8 Alexander OvechkinHas natural scoring instincts and an all-around game. Possesses offensive flair like Ilya Kovalchuk and Nikolai Zherdev, but is more physical and uses his frame better. Owns a deadly right-handed shot, and likes to play from his off-wing. He is a complete scoring machine who is elegant and explosive with great passion footspeed and bravado. Hecan overwhelm defenders 1 on 1 with great unescapablity and unparalleled ability to execute deftly at supersonic speeds. His shot has velocity is superman like due to his amazing wrist strength. Heworks feverishly without the puck and he is tough and physical and is good for at least one wipe out hit per game.

    #94 Ryan Smyth- Has underrated playmaking skills. Goes to the net with ample vigor and scores the majority of his goals due to supreme determination. He makes smart poised plays under pressure, Is strong along the boards and displays a sound overall game.He is a fearless energetic warrior he has agift for driving towards the net and screening goalies.A leader who iscomfortable playing any style of game.

    -#13 Mats Sundin Captain Mats is a durable elite forward who has an excellent package of size strength and finese He uses his reach to a degree that it is very hard to get the puck from him. Is extremely slick, loves to find the holes and has a wide variety of shots. Consistency is the name of his game.His shot is feared because of its accuracy.He is used in all game situations power play pently killing and is a great faceoffman especially when the game is on the line. Universally offensive talent can be unstoppable when driving his prodigious size and strength towards the net. He has one of the best backhand shots in the history of the league.

    #16 Darcy Tucker LW is a under sized pest who plays at full speed all the time.He brings a little bit of everything to the playing ice arena.He can kill penalties and can contribute to the powerplay.Always comes to play and forechecks very well. Provides an energy boost for his team every shift and has a decent set of hands around the net. Is absolutely fearless on the ice.Darcy has a knack for getting in the open and he wins battles for the puck using his quickness and ferocious competitiveness.He is a dangerous prescence when shooting from the half point.A valued soldier and a team sparkplug!


    # 30 Mike Vernon-The small but highly intelligent and experienced netminder was an extremely valuable and effective man in the crease was adept at handling the puck.He controls shots so that rebounds are limited. He plays his angles well. He positions himself on the top of the crease to make himself look bigger.Quick glove, good skating skills. Experienced, with great mental strength, and highly competitive.

    Paul Maurice - Coach The Current Coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs 2006- 07

    Paul Maurice (born ca. 1967 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario) is a professional hockey coach. He is currently the head coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League.


    Paul MauriceIn 1985, Paul played defence for the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League. He was struck in the eye by a puck, which had ricocheted off his stick, during a charity hockey game in which he was participating. He still has a blind spot and suffers fuzziness on the right side of his field of vision. When goalie Pat Jablonski was sent down by the St. Louis Blues, the Windsor Spitfires were therefore in excess number of players. At this point he was given the option by team owner Peter Karmanos to be traded or step behind the bench. He thus began his coaching career with the Detroit Jr. Red Wings (a team Karmanos operated) of the OHL from 1993 to 1995, leading the team to the J. Ross Robertson Cup and a second place finish in Memorial Cup in 1995.

    He was then hired to coach the Hartford Whalers (later the Carolina Hurricanes) of the NHL in 1995, at the remarkably young age of 28. Throughout much of his tenure, he was the youngest active coach in the NHL. The high point of his NHL career came in the 2001-02 NHL season, when the Hurricanes reached the Stanley Cup finals, losing to the Detroit Red Wings. After coaching 604 regular season games he was fired by the Hurricanes in 2003, after the team started the first 20 games 8-12.

    On June 24, 2005 he was hired to coach the Toronto Marlies, after the team had relocated from St. John's, Newfoundland. In the 2005-06 season, the Marlies qualified for fourth playoff spot in their division. They were subsequently eliminated by the Grand Rapids Griffins in the first round.

    On May 12, 2006, The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Paul Maurice as the head coach of the team starting in the 2006-07 NHL season, replacing former head coach Pat Quinn, who was fired on April 20, 2006.Maurice, 39, becomes the Leafs’ youngest head coach since Dan Maloney led the team during the 1984-85 season at the age of 33

    His first leafs team just missed the playoffs depite having injuries to several key players during the 2006-07

    He incorporates many ideas into his gameplay such as heart monitors on the benches. He favours short (30 second) shifts over longer ones.

    Maurice's 2-man forecheck system, a key to Offensive Success.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The All Time Drafts Coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs

    Introducing Maurice's 2 man forecheck system:

    We have a Intellectual coach who will be able to adapt mid game by implmenting trends used around the league by installign a system that best helps the team succeed.

    The leafs have good defensive centers (Sundin, Gilmour Carbonneau etc) to allow the wingers to ATTACK the offensive zone with abandon.. The leafs forwards will cause many turnovers in the offensive side of the ice.

    Couple the two-man forecheck with a much stronger defense, and mobile defensemen who can retrieve and control the puck well after picking up the turnovers caused by the opposing teams forwards.

    Maurice is the type of head coach that can instruct his players and communicate with his troops during a game when situations on the ice changed (such as a penalty or a game changing momentum play)

    what I love about this strategy (and system) is it makes the leafs very hard to play against.. Opposing defenseman have to be VERY alert because they have 2 forecheckers barreling down on them all for most of the game.

    That's not easy..

    It will be harder for teams to just stroll their way into our zone. They have to think about how to get the puck out of their own end first !

    we have the right kind of team to have an effective 2-man forecheck.. The make-up of the team is perfect for it.

    #1. We have good defensive centers to cover defensively for the rushing wingers like bossy Alfredsson Billy Gilmour and Ovechkin.. Sundin, Douggie Gilmour, Carbonneau plus my team has soem great terrific defensive wingers
    Dave Andreychuk Mike Bossy Joe Klukay Darren McCarty and Ryan Smyth

    #2. We have good mobile defensemen with good puck handling skills to retrieve and control the pucks caused by the wingers creating the turnovers..
    Tim Horton Scott Niedermayer CG Drinkwater Tomas Kaberle.

    This team also have smart tough rugged punishing physical defensive rear gaurds like Bobby Baun Zdeno Chara Tim Horton and Al Iafrate

    Maurice is definitely a young bench boss who could out coach any old timer!

    *Co-Captains alternate captaincy each game, with the non-captain wearing an A in games where he is not captain.
    **/***I am interpretting Suchy's long career/short peak as meaning he'll be inconsistant over the course of the season. His double entry on the right side indicates that he'll be the #1 RD when he's hot, but, when cold he'll split limitted time between the two sides when he's cold. So, **=Suchy is hot. ***=Suchy is cold.
    ****Players in red are anticipated to be healthy scratches.

    NEW JERSEY DEVILS

    :devils
    Coach: Pat Burns
    Even Pat Burns wont be able to find fault with the attention to defense put forth by this line-up. With a wide selection of multi-positional players, “Selke”, “Norris”, “Hart” and “Conn Smythe” winners to play with, he will find plenty of reasons to smile behind the bench.

    Forwards:
    Bun Cook - Frank Boucher - Bill Cook (C)​
    The Bread Line dominated opposing defenses for 10 years with their precision passing and relentless effort. During the period from 26-27 to 35-36, Bill Cook led all NHLers in goals, Boucher led in assists and points, while Bun Cook fell in between Frank and Bill in goals and assists. All three ranked in the top 10 in goals, assists and points over the period. Bun and Boucher were also known for their excellent defensive efforts.

    The second line is a solid combination of two-way play, grit and dazzling offensive ability. It’s also a good description of Barber and Petrov, both of whom are at home on both the PP and the PK. While Maltsev doesn’t have the same gritty two-way game as the others, he is the slickest offensively, and is also a versatile forward with strong leadership abilities.

    This is a slick defensive unit with huge offensive upside, and the ability to stay out of the penalty box. Walker is the best defensive forward in PCHA history, and while not being a elite scorer, he did manage to lead the NHA in assists, and tied for the team scoring lead on two Stanley Cup winners. Mickey MacKay is one of the slickest two-way players of all-time. Three times led the PCHA in goals, and once in assists, and while almost forgotten now, was regularly compared to Cyclone Taylor and Frank Nighbor in his playing days. Nevin was a solid contributor to the early 60’s success of the Leafs, and his two-way play and leadership helped the Rangers climb to respectability in the late 60s.

    A line of gritty two-way players, that doesn’t lead to penalty trouble. Tonelli can more than hold his own in the corners with anybody. Linden is the man to handle any of the really big centers, and will see duty on the #1 checking line when necessary. Duguay is better known for his looks, but he brings that ”old-time hockey” work ethic and multi-positional versatility that will allow for countering specific threats by line juggling as needed. While this line lacks the offensive pop of the other lines, the trio still managed to rack up 14 30+ goal seasons, with all three reaching the 30 goal and 80 point mark.

    While he may be a little undersized for a regular role on defense, Marshall gives you just about everything else. He played every position except goaltender, and played a robust all-around game. He won two scoring titles, and was selected by the authors of Ultimate Hockey as a two-time “Selke” winner as well.

    Larry Robinson is one of best all-around packages on defense to ever play the game, a huge physical presence and a mobile puck controlling force in one package. Goldham is a rock solid defender, and one of the best shot blockers of all-time. This unit will be able to shut down both flashy and power offensive lines, and not take penalties, so will see monster minutes.

    While not quite as big as Robinson, Fetisov also is an elite level all-around package. He will see action in all game situations. Dutton is a physical defensive hard rock with good mobility. He will primarily see action on the second unit and the PK. While a more mature Dutton will see less time in the box, we take comfort in the fact that the younger Dutton will usually take someone with him when he goes.

    Reed Larson’s primary role will be that of righty point man on the PP, as he finished in the top 5 of defenseman goal scoring 7 times. He has good mobility and is a willing scrapper, but his lack of defensive polish will limit his playing time. Moose Johnson while fleet of foot and able offensively will have a primary role of shutdown defenseman and PK duty. His unique combination of mobility and huge 99” wingspan will give attackers fits, as he forces them wide and clogs passing lanes with his active stick.

    An intelligent defender, a fine rusher, and one of the best passers of his time, Lester Patrick will be more than able of filling any hole that opens up.

    Goaltenders:
    Chuck Rayner
    Rayner is a highly mobile puck moving goalie, with a lightning quick poke check. While playing behind less than stellar teams for his entire career, he managed to get the Rangers within a goal of the Stanley Cup in 1950. The Rangers played 5 of the 7 games in Detroit, with the other two being played in Toronto. Rayner is also an able scrapper, having once thrashed Kenny Reardon in a fight. One of only two goalies with a Hart and a “Conn Smythe.”

    Chabot was a big but quick goaltender with a career playoff GAA of 1.54. He led both the Rangers and Leafs to their first Stanley Cups.

    A talkative and friendly goalie who was popular with teammates, fans and the press. He wont see much playing time, but his heroics in the Isles come from behind run in the 75 playoffs, shows he is capable of getting the job done.
