THE 73 DRAFT IS COMING SOON !
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

WELCOME TO THE DANCE!
Detroit and California go to the playoffs
The 1972 season winds to a regulasr season finale. The usual suspects are in New York, Montreal, Boston, Philly Chicago and Minnesota. This season however we have a couple newcomers to the dance. See below the players that made this happen.
Detroit Red Wings
Bryan Sakolsky took over a floundering Red Wings team. Fresh off of drafting a phenom names Marcel Dionne he followed it up with taking sniper Steve Vickers in last seasons draft. The combo clicked for sure. Dionne has 90 points already this season and Vickers has 25 goals. Unger has 71 points and gives this team a solid two lines ( dont forget Nick Libett). Randy Manery and Gary Bergman anchor the defense and the roatational goaltending of Rutherford Edwards and Gumber have combined for a stellar 2.71 GAA. This team is young and will batlle for the playoffs for years to come.
California Golden Seals
Dan “the man” Oakes is a founding member of the VHL and has taken his lumps taking over a Seals squad that was lacking in talent . Two seasons ago the Seals drafted Lafleur this past season D Robinson and Bouchard. All have played a part in the building of this team. Myre and Bouchard have become a solid tandem 3.06 GAA. LAfleur has scored 28 goals and has teamed with Dennis Hextall ( 30g 82pts) And on defense Stackhouse and Vadnais are dangerous point man and triple threats with solid D, strong shots and are hitters! I suspect like Detroit California will be perennial playoff contenders
