I would put Hodgson over Pietrangelo as smartest player in the East / Rinaldo ahead of Della Rovere for best body checker in the East / neither of you had Steven Tarasuk of London for Best offensive defenseman in the West - I'd have him in there, but I'm pro London...

Well Tom looks like you were right..

Hodgson and Pietrangelo were practically tied, I left him off becasue it's hard to judge seeing as he missed about 90% of the season, so I was hit or miss with him. Rinaldo belongs in the top 3, he finished 2nd, i had him 3rd. and You were right about Tarasuk. He finished 3rd, and believe me if i had a 4th pick for offensive defenceman, he without a doubt would have been #4 on my list. Thanks for the feedback!
