THE 72 DRAFT IS IN THE BOOKS
Best Winning percentage in 1972
When you think winning percentages in goalies you think Dryden, Esposito or Giacomin. Not so fast !! This season it was the great ( homer here) Michel Belhumeur. Michel was 17-3-3 with a 2.56 GAA for the Flyers!. Some say it might be his only season in the NHL but as a loving fan…it was a good one

1973-74 Season Begins!
Boston Bruins– The Bruins have crazy scoring this season Espo and Orr will lead the way. If Johnston can give them top goaltending they will win it.
Detroit Red Wings– Yup I said it. They have the best Goaltending in the division in Vachon. With Dionne and Unger up front it will depend on the teams Dmen
Montreal Canadiens– Ken Dryden needs a year to reflect ..man Id have loved to have been in the front office when he called THAT in. Brother Dave will have his hands full but this is a deep team
NY Rangers – Another team loaded with offence. This team like Boston can score in bunches and has a solid defense. But Giacomin and Villemure arent the 71-72 versions.
Vancouver and Buffalo – Both teams have made great strides and continue to improve. Vancouver has had two good drafts and will contend soon…just not this season
Philadelphia Flyers – Homer Alert ..The STanley Cup champs return a Bernie Parent who is at the top of his game. MacLeish and Clarke lead a very deep team. The defense is average but solid puck handlers
Chicago Blackhawks – The Hawks again have one of the top goalies in Espo and a solid , hitting defense. Great puckhandlers and centermen. They will contend for the west,
Pittsburgh Penguins – Dont sleep on the Pens. They have had 2 stellar drafts and trades this team will make the playoffs. Billy Smith and Wayne Thomas are a top tandem
Minnesota North Stars – Another offensively deep team as they can run out two top lines. Martin is building off another great season and Goldsworthy is set for a big year.
California Golden Seals – The Seals have one of the top defenses in the league and Robinson is still just a sophomore. They had solid goaltending but will need more offense as Lafleur can only do so much.
LA Kings – Nod here goes to the Kings and Doug Favell. Still a top goalie. They Nolet and Apps will lead the offense and oh yeah they just happened to have drafted Salming on D so things are looking up
St Louis Blues – Rookies Lanny McDonald, Don Lever and Terry O’Reilly will lead the Blues as they build towards the future. Bunny should keep them in most games but the Blues are building here.
