    S77 VHL Power Ranking

    During the off-season I played a little with my sheets, looking at every teams and getting different informations which probably is useless unless I wanted to do a long article. Let’s be honest, a power ranking is most of the time full of flaws and it is most likely gonna be wrong but it’s a good topic for debates and also a good topic to write about. So here is my power ranking based on TPA datas and not on my personal thoughts Here is the maths: The forwards total TPA is only based on the top 6 which means the 2 first lines. The reason behind that is bec

  2. Around the VHL: April 5th, 2021 (Season 77, Edition 1) Welcome back everyone to another edition of Around the VHL! We’re well underway in the 77th season of VHL hockey as the standings start to take shape. Off-season shifts in power are starting to play out as teams like the Los Angeles Stars, Riga Reign, London United, and Toronto Legion try to transition into contenders while familiar powerhouses like Moscow, Vancouver, and Malmo drop off. The defending champion Chicago Phoenix are near the top of tables again, with a 19-10-1 record through 30 games. Most o

  3. So we approach a point in the season where we can start predicting which teams will make the playoffs or not. I'll be doing a top 5 power ranking of teams in each conference that I believe to be on top of the hockey world right now. Things on this power ranking are subject to change the next time I make a list like this, so fasten those helmet straps because it's time for a lesson. North America 1.

  4. Credits: @Zetterberg Hello everyone, and welcome to another edition of VSN's seasonal Future Watch series release. I'm your resident head scout MattyIce and this article is doubly special for myself. We get to cover another season of prospects and teams gearing up for the VHL and also, I'll have a special privileged announcement to make! Another draft has come and gone, and many players have found themselves here; in a prospect pool. The grind has begun to get to the big show and we're here to show you who's where and who's going to enter the VHL in seasons to come.

It’s been a wild ride, and there were some crazy and unexpected outcomes during the tournament ! So here we go, onto the S76 WJHC Recap. With a bang to start the tournament, Team Asia let their presence be known as they bested Canada in a 3-game sweep, and continued to ride their massive hype wave as they steamrolled through the opposition on the way to clinching the top seed. Team Europe, on the other hand, took their time as they st

  7. A Self Reflection on 60 Seasons in the VHL For those that do not know, this was my sixtieth season in the Victory Hockey League. Normally, I sit here and do a VSN article on the BOG or potentially a podcast with friends, but with there being limited to report on behind the scenes, and friends celebrating Easter, I choose to reflect instead. I haven’t always been someone that was all that well known around these leagues, with me generally being more of a football sim-leaguer for much of my time prior to VHL. That being said, after being selected in the second round o

  8. Hello, VHL! We're in the midst of an off-season that feels like an eternity, but the 77th season of the Victory Hockey League is right around the corner! But before we get to the swan song of the class of Season 70, let's take advantage of the lull in the action and take a look back at some of the big trades over the off-season. Some were major, some of them had us scratching our heads, but they all got the league talking, one way or another. It's a new season, but VSN is continuing to deliver the best media coverage in the sim sports world! Before the new season begins, take one

  10. If you’ve accessed the forums one time in the past month, you’re probably aware of the fact that community members have… feelings about the Board of Governors. I’ve stayed pretty quiet about it because I’m not one to (publicly) complain without supplying a solution. I’m coming to realize that there isn’t a clean solution for the controversy, and that’s one thing. On the other hand, though, I don’t think that means that we should collectively give up on trying to push for a better system. I get sick of mindless complaining pretty quickly. I’m really bored and kind of irritated with

    S77 Toronto Legion

    So the season begins today and I'm excited to finally reveal something we've been working on, but first I need to make a very special acknowledgement: @BOOMhas risen above and beyond for our roster by offering his time and talents for each individual we currently entertain on the Toronto Legion. He's even created graphics for players that have departed or Toronto targeted in free agency, so we all owe him a token of our appreciation. I want to state that I am not claiming any of this for TPE, and the graphics provided by BOOM are his and his only... we'll just be using them here in the Toronto

I am still working on optimizing the delivery of these articles, so if there are any suggestions for how to make this series better, feel free to leave a comment!

    VHLM Power Rankings: Week 1

    Word Count: 1505 Believe it or not, we are already a week in to the 77th season! That means 13 or 14 games played per club (as I am writing this). I have decided to do some power rankings, based on this past week. A number of variables will be taken into account, including: record (of course), streaks (winning or losing), and goal differential. I will also take a look at top performers for each team. Without further ado, here’s what I came up with: 12. Mexico City Kings Record: 2-12-0 Streak: L12 Goal Differential: -34 The Kings are currently last i

    EVERYBODY LOVE EVERYBODY! There’s been too much negativity in the league and I honestly can’t express this enough weather your just a player/ member to a gm to a BOG or whatever respect is respect. Just because you don’t necessary agree with everything the league or someone does in general it don’t mean there wrong. However, a discussion and a good debate with personal attacks left out and the being rude about it isn’t going to look good on you and your point of view of something.

Ultimately, I wanted to do an actual try at making a realistic one for this, so let's take a look at: What if @thadthrasherdidn't deny me a shot at being his AGM in San Diego and I didn't go to Mexico City under @Hylands? Now, a little backstory on this. Technically speaking, I never wanted to be apart of any sort of management when I first came into the VHL. I wanted to only focus on makin

With the Yukon Rush now 16 points behind San Diego for the fourth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference of the VHLM many of their undrafted players have started to turn their attention toward the upcoming off-season and most importantly the VHL draft and for some also the VHLM draft. In this article we will break down each player strengths and weaknesses as well as make some projections about the draft as well, followed by an exclusive interview with the GM of the Yukon Rush @Juice.

  17. 8:00 PM - Sunday, March 14th - Helsinki, Finland. I was landing in Helsinki after an absolutely amazing WJC. Turns out that the board over there wanted to bring me in as a GM, so I ended up logically with Team Europe. I knew I had to stay in shape, so I had full gear on during morning skates, practices, scrimmages, etc. The only time I wasn't practicing with the team was during the games when I was behind the bench. I brought in my good buddy Jiggly Gumballs as my AGM, so we coached them together. Also got to see a few familiar faces. Gunnar Odinsson who had previously played on a

In these biweekly articles, I will discuss my experience in the league and touch upon questions relating to forums, GMing, and my player careers. It will not be necessarily bad things or things I didn’t like, it will feature things that still hold meaning to me and have shaped my path in the VHL. To start this series off, I will be touching upon an important question I have asked myself: What was the first blunder that any of John Frostbeard’s GMs had made? There aren’t many, but there are a few that ma

You've been a thorn in my side for far too long, from stealing new players with your low-tier video creations to your Mar-lames winning and thinking you're all cool with your "haha get wrecked" attitude after your first win against the Rush. You think one win over our long season ahead is enough to trash talk? Enough to attempt to ruin my first year of being a GM? If anyone is wondering what I'm referring to, please find this wonde

  23. Great piece overall, nice to see players express their feelings or concerns with an organization publicly sometimes rather than the usual boring cookie cutter hockey interviews. The part where you called out your GMs was especially exciting, generating lots of discussion and drama in the thread. Next time it'd be nice to add some photos or gifs for extra comedic value, but keep it up! Hot threads are what keeps this league exciting, even if its at the expense of all the VHLM GMs fighting. I'd rate this an 8/10.

  25. Hello Members, It's no secret that the VHL has been expanding rapidly over the last few seasons and an internal goal has been to eventually beat out the NHL for number of teams, which will sit at 32 once Seattle joins the league. With that goal in mind we have decided to bring forth the largest change to the league in decades, potentially ever. Starting in S78 the VHLM will be disbanded with it's teams all being moved to the VHL, giving us 28 teams in total. This gets us close to our goal but not quite there so we will be also adding 6 new teams to the league, all based

  30. I understand that the goal here is to kill two birds with one stone: increase forum activity and make the GM job more "prestigious" in a sense by forcing GMs to produce team-specific content. However, on the other hand, this post has been up for an hour and both current and ex-GMs have basically expressed that producing the kind of content you're proposing wouldn't be sustainable. I think they're right - forcing people to write media spots is a great way to fast-track member burnout, just like Quik pointed out. I also think that whoever mentioned the equivalence of forced MSs and c

  33. Hi everybody, As many of you are aware, this week is Theme Week, with the S77 Trade Deadline coming next Monday, April 19th, at 3PM EDT. This season's theme will be VHL Alternate Reality. Pick a moment in time of the VHL, change how it goes, and run with it. That time when your team lost to an upstart underdog? Change the narrative and tell us how things would've gone had you won that series. A star player got traded when nobody expected? What happens if they don't leave or went to a different team?

  36. Is...is Rico's media spot really taken this harshly. I took it as a bit of roleplay on top of a trade request, which honestly if a player wants a trade request it's their career and although I'd talk with them to make sure, it's what they want. I like RJ and Hex, but I don't really see any sort of insults being thrown besides that the Locker Room is inactive, so to see this exploding and people (including GMs) shitting on Rico for this is honestly kinda insane to see and @Sonnetreally broke it down best.

Going on about "hashing things out privately" while ironically keeping everything in this thread and doing absolutely nothing to de-escalate or handle things with any sort of grace? Fuck outta here with this, you guys are supposed to be the heads of player development in this league. You should all know better.

Now that I have your attention, allow me to talk to you about one of my new favorite members of the site: @fishy I've gone on at length about how much the trade to Chicago has re-energized my interest in the VHL as a whole, but I don't think I've given enough credit to one person in particular. Fishy, in particular, is just one of the most fantastic people to be around at any given point in the day. I can attribute this to a lot of different things- from having a great sense of humor, to bring actively engaged with the team at all times, to being incredibly supportive of the peopl

  41. Giving the GMs more responsibilities just so we can cut those unwilling to take these responsibilities seem counterintuitive. If there are so many people that want jobs, why not create a position that is exactly what you said? A team-media liaison or something, that writes weekly articles about the team, sets interviews with players and stuff like that.

  42. I don't think anyone wants to read shitty game summaries just because GMs have to do them weekly. It's not like there are special things to talk about every week, so you damn right know it would end up being media spots about boring game summaries every other week, just so they can check it off their checklist.

Aside from one team, 11 of our 12 teams are at least in playoff contention in some way or another. A couple teams have certainly pulled ahead overall, but it's been a pretty interesting season and there's potential for a decent amount of movement both in the standings, and in the Power Rankings. Because of this, I expect there could be a very interesting trade market leading up to the trade deadline this year,

  45. So today I'm going to go over the three best positions in hockey to play, ranked by the ease of their role. Now Nick, you can't just rank positions by how easy they are, each role is nuanced right? That's what you're thinking, and you're wrong for thinking it, never contact me again with your hippy every role is equal bullshit. There's a reason people watch hockey alright, it's the fighting and the goals. Now if you're unfortunate enough to not be able to do that, well I got good news. You're perfect for these three roles since you're not built to be a real man. 1. Goalie Yea
