    VHL Trades Analysis

    (This was requested by the amazing, @Beaviss) There always a lot of trades in the NHL, but there are also a lot of trades in the VHL! I'm going to analyze 2 pretty recent trades to see who came out on top! TRADE No. 1 (The New York Americans traded Casey Jones to the Quebec City Meute for Bryce Zhields and Roctrion King.) Quebec City picked up a player who has showed that he is elite throughout his entire career. Quebec City gave away two younger players to go all out so they have better chance of winning the Cup. The New York Americans are second to last in the standings and are currently rebuilding. In the trade, the New York Americans received two young players in Roctrion King and Bryce Zhields. Who won trade No. 1? I personally think that the NYA came out on top. Casey Jones is in his last year which really hinders the Quebec City Meute. The NYA got two really good young players that will both make a big impact. The trade is only worth it for the Quebec City Meute if they win the Cup. Expectations are super high for the Quebec City Meute now. This trade was somewhat related to the VHLM Halifax trade where GM Shawn traded a ton of picks for two people who are going to the VHL next season. TRADE No. 2 (The Helsinki Titans traded Jack Shephard to the Seattle Bears for a S63 2nd round pick and 3rd round pick. The Titans also received an additional 3rd round pick for the S64 draft) The Helsinki Titans traded away Jack Shephard who is currently in his last year in the VHL. Seattle got a few picks in the trade. The Seattle Bears aren't even up there to be Cup contenders. Helsinki is currently re-building so the picks really help them. Who won trade No. 2? I personally think that Helsinki won the trade. Seattle is nowhere near to be considered a Cup conteder in the VHL. They shouldn't have traded away those picks as those picks could have been beneficial to them.

    Rylan Peace - Rookie Profile [1/2]

    Rylan Peace | #36 RW | 6'1'' | 212 lbs | Age: 18 | FREE AGENT Rylan Peace Born: September 6th Birthplace: Cardston, AB, CAN Shots: Right Draft: Undrafted prospect Junior Career [S59 - Cardston Steelheads (AA)] || 60 GP // 45 G // 28 A // 73 P // +24 || [S60 - Cardston Steelheads (AA)] || 55 GP // 49 G // 30 A // 79 P // +29 || [S61 - Lethbridge Hurricanes (CHL)] || 68 GP // 25 G // 20 A // 45 P // +01 || [S62 - Lethbridge Hurricanes (CHL)] || 72 GP // 37 G // 29 A // 66 P // +11 || CARDSTON, ALBERTA --- The lights of the Enmax Arena have long shut down, but yet their shining young star still brightly lights up the moderate sized city of Lethbridge, Alberta; Rylan Peace - now eighteen and a free agent of the Victory Hockey League - was never truly able to lift the Cardston Steelheads or the Lethbridge Hurricanes into the next realm, but the young adult was able to give a small town something to cheer and hope for in the future - a future of, just maybe, the crowned achievement making its way down main street in the next decade; Lethbridge on the other hand would be satisfactory to have a great alumni player to add to their growing list. Rylan Peace has a magnitude of tools in his handy-dandy utility belt, but let's be real - he won't be a batman of the VHL anytime soon - but he could be the super hero a struggling team needs, a person to inject hope and inspiration into the club's identity. His most prolific tool is his deadly shot, which some would compare to highly accomplished players even at his young age. Rylan Peace accomplished what many thought was impossible with the ever struggling Cardston Steelhead AA high school team, he showed that his near legendary work ethic and unfaltering determination was more than enough to carry a smaller less talented team into the playoffs not once, but twice, even if they were eliminated in the first round in their back to back appearances. Rylan was also modestly successful at a higher level of competition in the CHL, becoming an asset for the Lethbridge Hurricanes while they pushed for a Memorial Cup, although both attempts were in vein as the club never progressed beyond the conference finals. Having success in two entirely different competition levels means that Rylan Peace has the tools to adapt to scenarios, learn the flow of the game and make it work for the type of player he is. Rylan also thrives in the twilight zone between heavy spotlight exposure... and the blank articles fourth-line grinders rarely gets, which just happens to be about as dark as a moonless light in the middle of a forest; however, like many youngsters, Rylan struggles when expectations are set to high for him to accomplish - but perhaps his most respected attribute is his sportsmanship. Overall, the young prospect just might make a good first line player in the VHL, but for now he's just an extra ordinary young man anyone can approach and get a laugh from. STRENGTHS SHOT: Rylan's shot - as mentioned above - is absolutely deadly. You couple his shot speed and accuracy with his quick, clean releases from in tight and as far out as the faceoff hashes in the attacking zone, you're going to get a high scoring individual. If you're able to put the puck on his stick, he'll more than likely get a good shot on goal faster than a defender can react. STRENGTH: Rylan is fairly strong for his size and age. He is able to hold people along the boards - which in turn allows him to battle for the puck along the boards if he wasn't the one who initiated board play - on top of having the strength to compete in a mans game, although the young man still needs to bulk up in places to be more competitive in the future. PERSONALITY: Rylan has a 'never give up' attitude and a strong work ethic that has a tendency to slowly radiate around him. He's one of those players who will be on the ice until management tells him to get off, he's one of those players who will take three hundred shots at an open net aiming for a tooth picks hanging down from the netting just to improve his accuracy. What ever the task, Rylan will try his best to achieve success in it. WEAKNESSES: SKATING: Rylan is - unfortunately - a little underwhelming with his skating ability. Becoming faster and more agile on the ice should be Rylan's highest priority this offseason, especially once teams start showing an interest in the young draft-eligible prospect. Although Rylan isn't fundamentally fast, he is still a physically strong skater and doesn't get knocked around easy. PASSING: Rylan isn't a play maker by any sense of the means - his offensive tools rely on his accurate shots - but he certainly needs to improve his passing skills in order to compete in the VHL beyond bottom six roles. While Rylan isn't the worst passer out there, he'll struggle on stretch passes and collecting flip passes on the rush. If he focuses on Improving his passing abilities and hand eye coordination in relation to passes in the air, he can become a far more effective player. CHECKING: Rylan needs to utilize his large frame and VHL ready weight before he can truly elevate to the next level in the VHL. Although he isn't afraid of taking a hit, the youngster rarely - if ever - throws a check of his own despite his relatively modest size and good strength. When Rylan does throw a hit, he struggles finishing his checks which can (and has) resulted in the opposing player gaining the advantage on Rylan both offensively and defensively due to his poorer skating abilities.

    What Odd VHL Things Do You Do?

    Everyone has their quirks. What are some of the odd VHL related things that you do? For example, I: Used the same last name for all of my players Always tried to play at least one season for the Ottawa Ice Dogs/Lynx while in the VHLM Look at the games simmed each day in game number order, no matter where they stand in the "most recent posts" Haven't changed my profile picture in way over a calendar year Almost never hit free agency and stay with the same team unless traded Of the above, two or three of them are most likely going to end at some point. I'm not sure what my next players name will be, but I'm not sure if it'll include the same last name. I'm terrified of someone work-related finding my account on here. I actually planned on changing my profile picture when @Devise asked about it in a press conference. I'm unsure what my free agency plans will be this year. I'm enjoying my time with Quebec this year (more than I thought I would, and that's nothing against @Beaviss and the rest of the Meute), but I may want to hit free agency and choose my own spot for my last year with Jeff.

    Rylan Peace - Biography [1/2]

    I was so tired when I wrote this... It's Rylan, but every time I put in Dylan I was actually talking to my friend Dylan on an Escape From Tarkov server I have so, yeah, my brain was like 'Oh yeah his name is Dylan now, not Rylan, you're tired and won't notice the difference'. I will correct immediately, thanks for noticing! As for Ryland the free agent page was mis-spelt, so I was going to change to Ryland, but I kinda like Rylan I was just too shy to say 'Hey that's wrong'. lol

    They will score goals that's forsure. But the D is not even in the top 15 in the league. They will cough up a lot of quality scoring chances. Anderson faltered last season to the point they thought about a upgrade. We will see. But I do not see a cup in the future unless they fix that D. Which will be hard with the money they spend on Forwards. Still need to re-sign Nylander. Then Matthews and Marner next season. They need to get rid of some forwards to fix that D

    @Peace Las Vegas has spent the cap maximum and will not be able to offer you a contract. Regardless, best of luck with your return to the VHL. Had some free time and did you up a player signature as a welcome back gift.

    WJC and other fun facts for TPE

    So with the lack of simming, thanks @Higgins, we've been relegated to suckling on the teet that is the world juniors, spelling it out for word count points. The tither tather of wishy washy performance has, me personally, slacking in the TPE department. My creative juices are being whipped with folks like @Enorama racking up maximum uncapped TPE via hof articles, watch out Gabriel McAllistar (sp?). But, what can ya do as a youngling right? You can just do what you can, hit the capped TPE, and roll with it, hope to be an impact player and perform within the shadow of these behemoths. Will uncapped TPE opportunities arise, will they be exploited and abused? Perhaps, but I guess that's anywhere you go, parity, alas. Here's an interesting tidbit, I'm writing this within the editor on the forum site, and I can't press the enter key .... I'd really much like to format this POS article for the three (3) people who will potentially read it ... But honestly, they're just here for the reviewing TPE since the trivia is fkin hard (for me). I want to see our team excel, but I would also rather a few games consistently than 5 games one day and then a 3 day break, bruv. So, without further ado, RIP my enter key, let's get to the meat of this proverbial sandwitch. The world juniors. Why is there no link on the home page to this? No link on the portal. I have to thumb through forum tabs to get to the games? oof. With that said, team Asia or team Europe, or whoever the fk switched from Canada, first of all, fk you. Second of all, Europes "super star" Oilstain Revchokeblow is having a "career" year, after being torched by his VHL affiliate (seriously, who would draft this guy), he was relegated to the VHLM where he has been riding the coat tails of Borwinn and the other winger we have .... But on the world stage, when he's leaned on to be "the guy" it seems like he cant quite locate the top shelf where mama keeps the peanut butter, or the bottle of frenchies mustard for that matter. But what did you really expect? Something of substance? Go read an actual magazine. It's 379 words so far, and I had to copy paste it into a new tab into google docs, fml. 150x2 good for 4tpe, sure, I'm a hore(s).
