The NHL's first "Japanese-born" player selected in the Draft was also imaginary. What was "his" name? For extra credit, what was the reasoning behind inventing a draft pick?

His name was Taro Tsujimoto. Punch Imlach drafted him in 1974 as a joke. His name in Japanese means Sabre. I've heard that he pulled the name out of the Buffalo phonebook, but I don't know if that's ever been confirmed or not.

Correct.

Imlach drafted him to pull a fast one on the NHL. The NHL conducted the '74 Draft through a complicated secret process so that the WHA would not know what was going on. Because of this process, the draft was taking forever, and Imlach was pissed off. Some people actually thought the Sabres had found some diamond in the rough.

In the last National Hockey League instance of a goaltender crossing the centre red line (legally) in an attempt to score, this netminder was rocked by a Jean-Claude Tremblay bodycheck. Name him.

 Gary "Suitcase" Smith may have only played five games for the Toronto Maple Leafs, but this one will be remembered for awhile. Smith claims that he made his mad dash into history because he figured that he'd be sent back to the minor leagues anyhow. The "Gary Smith rule" is section (i) of Rule 31.

There are at least two relatively well known statues of famous sporting figures in the city of Boston.  Name the sporting figures represented.  For extra credit (1/2 point apiece) name each statue's location.

Red Auerbach- located at Faneuil Hall Marketplace

Harry Agganis- located at Meze Restuarant

I know Bird has one too, but not sure of where exactly the hotel is

Larry Bird- located at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel

Lookit the big brain on JB5!  I wasn't even thinking of the Agannis or Bird statues--in fact, I didn't even know they existed--but some research proved they do in fact exist.  (The best part is, Agannis has a much more famous statue outside of the aptly named Agannis Field; you chose the more obscure likeness.)

For the record, the other statue I had in mind was the Ted Williams statue outside of Fenway Park.  You took the more difficult route, though.  As far as I'm concerned, you get the full two points.

Yer up...

Ok, let's try an obscure one.

Which MLB player holds the record for biggest home/road home run differential in the season after he won the home run title?

Not to hijack JB5's question, but carpetbegger, could we get a score update when you get a chance?
