Most head coaches have also worked as assistants first, so I'd say yes, absolutely.

Absolutely you can draft an assistant coach. And Red Kelly is the best available. Games played rules apply, and are much harder to find, so be careful. I would only recommend head coaches that meet the GP requirement to be honest. Anything else, unless a super specialist, is a bit of a reach I think.

Non-Penguin examples of "super specialist" assistants: Larry Robinson for defense, Warren Strelow for goaltenders, etc.

I can't really think of anyone that fits that "super" mold in Pittsburgh's history, but maybe you can...

More defensive specialist/faceoff guys for me.

John Chabot, C

Image

A quick glance shows, I think, that he's the only eligible player in the top-50 in points per game in Pens history that hasn't been selected. Not bad for a player that was used infrequently on the power play for most of his time here. He did lead all players in PK time in 1986 it's estimated and he led all forwards in 1987 in PK time (estimate). Despite limited use at even strength, Chabot was 2nd in assists (Lemieux) on the club when he was acquired early in the 1985 season, he was 6th on the team in points in 1986, 6th in goals/8th in points in 1987. Despite his frequent use against higher quality competition, Chabot was a remarkably clean player - in 216 career games as a Pen, Chabot was only handed 26 minutes in penalties. Unfortunately, I just miss netting another forward with Selke candidation - Chabot received some the year after he left...:(

More defensive depth:

Paul Stanton, D

206 regular season games (11 + 38), and a mainstay on the 91 and 92 Cup winning teams (44 GP, 2+10)

I'm going to make sure that nobody **** with my star forwards and claim

Paul Baxter, D

202 GP for the Pens with 25 G and 69 An ot to mention 800+ PIM. Fierce competitor and hated über-pest who played much bigger than his modest height of 5'11 suggested.

Little extra offensive punch to my lineup that I can add in a pinch...only 2 years with us: 2nd in goals, 1st in assists (by 39.2%), 1st in points (by 37.2%) in our first season. Finished 1st in the West Division in points! First goal in Penguins history. Had the first hat trick in Penguins history. 2nd season was in 1971, 3rd on the club in assists (3 short of the leader), 3rd on the club in points (3 short again). 150 GP: 35 goals, 68 assists, 103 points. He's the only eligible player remaining that's in the HHOF as a player that hasn't been picked yet I believe. Also, he gets an asterisked top scoring finish for leading all expansion players in 1967-68, which is the best that he could have reasonably done. Good peak value for this time in the draft I think.

Totally irrelevant: But if the goalie cut-off was 150 instead of 100, do we think Pietroangelo is eligible? I eyeballed it for literally 10 or 15 seconds, and I thought it might come out close. Depending on how much they yo-yo'd him between the NHL and IHL in those early years.

With the 136th pick in the LGP Draft, the Degloving Kings select from Framingham, MA:

LH D Peter Taglianetti

Image

A good 7th defenseman capable of being a starter over a period of time if injuries occur. Nothing flashy at all.

Sorry it's taken me so long. I'm currently packing to make the trip back to school later today. I could have the picks done before 7.

Thanks...feel free to pick, the clock has long expired on these two picks. He can make them up at his leisure. Order doesn't matter so much in the last couple picks I don't believe. Especially given the lack of depth in the organization's history.

My two picks will be picked from HockeyDB off the list of players by games played.

Also, really sorry. Drove the 3 hours to Columbus and forgot about it whilst unpacking.

I'll take Markus Naslund, LW.

151 regular season games with the Pens. I realize this isn't about what they did with other teams, but Naslund had the potential, scoring 19 goals and 52 points in 1995-1996 before he was traded to the Nucks.

Please don't apologize. The effort to make timely picks from everyone throughout has been so far above my level of expectation that I couldn't begin to describe it. I appreciate that this was even top-10 on the list of things people did on the internet, much less life all together.

Invalid...he's right-handed... :wink: :slug:

I think McCallum is a quality pick here. He wasn't much of a special teams player, but logged a lot of even strength time on the early Penguins teams...led the team in ES TOI in 1971 before his departure...I wonder if anyone can find out why he ended up in the minors (WHL) in 1972 before going to the WHA the next year...it seemed like '71 was his best season.

Fun fact: In the WHL (now a junior league), the trophy for Coach of the Year is named in his honor.
