Picking the second highest rated player remaining is hardly a gamble, chic.

There was a period in my life, maybe 10 years ago.. I could name every player on every team just by looking at a picture of their face. Like 1st name and last name.

And guesstimate their age at 1-2 years difference. Everytime.












I was a hit at parties!











Anyway.. about 2 days ago I learned that Eichel, Laine and McDavid actually all made their teams (and those are the only players I know from the last 3 drafts!)

Photo software AI does that for you now -recognize people in pictures, name them and group them. You don't need to do anything. Soon, AI will analyse sufficient amount of player and game footage that it will acurately predict game results (and later each player's actions at each second of the game). Then it will do the same for every person's acts outside of hockey too. Humanity was always just one of many natural events governed by the laws of physics since the creation of the space-time continuum in which it exists, but it did not know of its either preordained or completely random faith. Knowing this will change the game. Feeling helpless, we will stop acting. Losing the agency we though we had, we will decay in apathy. Of course the computers already knew this....

"You" did not stop following hockey for no reason, banana.

When I went to a Cubs game last month, it was against Washington -the former expos. World series champs vs former expos. I did not know -had not even heard of- a single player on either team. I was a decent baseball fan back in the day. Wonder if the same will happen for hockey as younger players take over and I only loosely keep informed.

OOOH yeah life goes on, long after the thrill of Vinny is gone

It's too bad all the people that could really run the Habs are busy doing talk radio, writing blogs or posting on message boards.

Now, Lajoie is an imbecile, a cretin and a plagiarist, who to use author Dany Laferrière's deliciously withering expression, "lives beyond his intellectual means."

...as serious as a poutine shortage in Chicoutimi during a curling bonspiel...

Question: if I pick a hybrid forward (one that can play both center and wing, for example) can I then slot him in either of the positions? Or do things depend on where that forward actually plays?

So far, as suggested, I am following the Yahoo designations for players.
