    We Clinched

    In my first year in the league, our team has clinched first place in the VHLM! Our team, the Las Vegas Aces, have really done an excellent job in a tough league. For a while there we were well ahead of the pack but recently Halifax and Ottawa have stormed up the standings are are right there. It should be a really fun playoffs and run for the Aces. For my player, I am very happy with how well he has done in his first season. Just outside the top 10 in scoring for d-men is something I was hooping to achieve but didn’t think my player would achieve that so I’m very impressed with his offence. Defensively, I am very impressed and was hoping to be a top d-men in this league. Mitch has been able to be 4th best in plus- minus through 70 games as well as sitting 8th in hits. I am very happy with his defensive play as I wanted him to be a defensive defence man with an offensive touch. For improvements, I am hoping to improve on Mitch’s penalties. He took more penalties that I would have wanted but am happy with his intensity and physical play so we just have to work on finding a balance here. For now we are focusing on finishing up the last two games and going on a Long playoff run to win the championship. Congrats to our GM @Jubo07. Congrats to all my teammates. Let’s win the championship! @wcats @NathanN @BluObieZ @CurtisG93 @Rocketman04 @DaftRaincloud @Anthony Matthews @Matt_O @Ty343 @SwagSloth @jacobaa19 @Eparker24 @nymets5 @Antone10 @Goonie @Lefty @oilmandan @Philliefan @TheLastOlympian07 @SpartanGibbles @Bonzaijoe

This week, we'll try and predict where everyone ends in the draft. It will be rough, as we don't even know the actual order of the draft, since the season is yet to be done, and the lottery is still in a pretty long time. Still, it should be fun to write about what every team could be targeting and where every player could end up in this first inaccurate mock draft. For the sake of it, the order of the draft will be a reversed standings, and we'll pretend Moscow drafts 6th. They will be awarded somewhere between 4th and 9th, so we'll put them near the middle. This means the order would be Davos, New York, Calgary, Toronto, Vancouver, Moscow, Helsinki, Seattle, Riga for the 2 rounds of this mock. So, without further ado, let's get into it. *Disclaimer: I don't know how everyone feels about everyone. This draft has more recreates than the other one I covered, so there might be some selections here that make sense on paper, but that have actually 0 chance to happen based on 2 players not liking each other too much. Sorry, if that happens. You can laugh about it in the comments, that'll teach me about your relationships with everyone. 1. HC Davos Dynamo selects Carles Puigdemont - C, 281 TPE I wasn't around for that long, so I can't really speak about drafts before S63, but I think Puigdemont set himself apart from the competition in the same way Kastelic did in S63 and Sullivan Jr. did in S64. There are only two players in this draft class who are over, Werbenjagermanjensen at 217 and the Spanish center at an astounding 281. @Eudaldkp also just took over Oslo, which should help guarantee his activity for a while. I could talk about how this is the pick Shawn (or any other GM, really, Puigdemont is a keeper) needs to make here if he has the #1 pick, but I'll keep it simple and just say that, even though the draft might be in like 3 weeks or so, this pick is already 100% sure to me. Puigdemont goes first, whoever has the first pick, and he'll be an offensive force for years to come. 2. New York Americans select Brady Stropko Jr - D, 154 TPE If we are being completely honest, with McWolf, Sullivan and Parker in the roster next season, the New York Americans probably need more forwards than defensemen, but I can't come around to put any forward ahead of the available defensemen. Werbenjagermanjensen is the best available player, but I think Spade goes with Stropko Jr, here. Everyone knows @Bushito is a great member of this community. He's been for a long time and he's amazing at collecting that TPE. Recently retired Norris Stopko is the leader in all-time TPE with 1623 (now tied with Quik's Mats Johnsson, actually. But Bushito should take back the lead in a couple of seasons with Jasper Canmore). Stropko Jr will probably end up as the best defenseman in this class, adding to the already pretty solid defensive core of the Americans, who'd be only a couple of strong forward free agents away from being contenders. Plus, drafting Stropko Jr with the 2nd pick prevent Bushito from drafting himself, holding to his 2 players for their complete careers and building a dynasty like he did with Stopko and Canmore. He'll probably build a dynasty anyway. 3. Calgary Wranglers select Smitty Werbenjagermanjensen - D, 217 TPE I said it right up there, Bushito would probably love to pick himself and recreate the Stopko-Canmore madness with Stropko Jr-GM player yet-to-be-named. However, he'll have to turn to Werbenjagermanjensen in the situation that Stropko Jr was drafted before the Wranglers selection. Werbenjagermanjensen is a strong alternative, as he currently leads all defensemen in TPE and is essentially capping every week. @flyersfan1453 is also a veteran member who's made solid players in the past, so unless he disappears, you know what you are getting with this one. He'd join a core of welfaring or inactive defensemen, leaving him an easy way to become the leader of the Wranglers blueline in the future. 4. Vancouver Wolves select Roll Fizzlebeef (from Toronto Legion) - C, 162 TPE Beaviss finally got what he wanted; he became a good GM the league moved a team to Vancouver and, of course, it was his own Quebec City Meute that was relocated (which I'm fine with, considering the Meute is the name of a Quebec extremist group). This crop of draftees will be the first one to be officially drafted by the Vancouver Wolves. The first of many will be Roll Fizzlebeef. @TacticalHammer is a simleague vet and he can count on welfare from affiliate leagues to safely develop. He might seem like a bit of a reach with this pick, considering I'm skipping Gritty (who I don't consider as safe a pick as Fizzlebeef) and players from other positions but, if we look at the draftboard, there are not a lot of elite forwards in this class, so it might be an idea to load up on them early. 5. Vancouver Wolves select Bald Guy - D, 160 TPE The Wolves actually have a second pick in a row (if things go my way) and with it, they select Bald Guy, an actual sumo wrestler on skates. @Galdoblame is fairly new in the sim league scene, but he got used to it pretty quickly and he doesn't seem like he's going to stop anytime soon. Plus, this might be an unknown fact, but the guy is a STHS wizard. He knows about the most efficient way to build his player and it showed, as Guy is almost going point-per-game over the course of the season, despite joining after it actually started. The fact that he's capping most weeks helps with that too. In fact, Guy went from a waiver pickup one week into the season to now the 7th spot in the rankings. 6. Moscow Menace selects Elasmobranch Fish - D, 149 TPE Let's be absolutely honest, no one know what the Menace will need when the drafts unrolls. It will depend on the result of the expansion draft (which just now makes me realize I'll need to wait for the expansion draft to release my final mock draft, fuck me.) In that regards, I'm simply putting the best player available here. Elasmobranch Fish was a waiver pickup this season and he's been as solid on the ice as @Sharkstrong has been a fun locker room presence. Just as it was the case with Fizzlebeef, Fish got extra points for claiming affiliate welfare weekly, as it's a safe way to gather strong TPE without needing too much time. He still takes the time to get close to the TPE cap weekly, though. 7. Vancouver Wolves select Mitch Matthews (from Helsinki Titans) - D, 148 TPE Quebec/Vancouver mainly needs help on defense. They're losing both Colton Rayne and Casey Jones this offseason, as they are both hanging the skates, meaning Samuel Gate and Bald Guy (supposedly drafted earlier) are now the only active member on their blueline. Beaviss continues to draft defensemen, as he brings first-generation player Mitch Matthews aboard. @Antone10 has been steady since joining, claiming between 6 and 8 TPE every week and never missing a single week. He's not going to become a future elite defenseman, but if he can keep on his activity, he'll line up perfectly behind the two other defensemen named right above. 8. HC Davos Dynamo selects Dallas Jones (from Seattle Bears) - D, 197 TPE Dallas Jones is the player with the third most TPE right now, but I see him slipping down to the 8th pick. Maybe farther. Maybe not either. You gotta understand that @Trifecta comes with some level of risk. I put 3 straight first-generation defensemen above him, who all come with some sort of risk too. At some point, you gotta ask yourself which is most likely to happen. Is Galdoblame, Antone10 or Sharkstrong going to desert the league in a couple of seasons? Maybe. One thing about Trifecta is he won't desert for an extended period of time. He might however retire Dallas Jones (please don't though) and recreate after some brief inactivity. I joined before S62 and I have yet to see Trifecta reach the VHL. Hopefully this is the good one and Davos gets a steal with this 8th pick, as I know they're looking for defensemen in this draft (good thing there are a lot of them). 9. Riga Reign selects Matthew Kai - RW, 135 TPE Riga won last season and they're looking like the favourites to win again this season. They don't have a lot of place in the roster, but they might be facing some cap issues soon. Still, their roster and prospect pool are both stupidly deep, so I see the team just getting a solid future player here. Matthew Kai is nothing fancy. He looked like he was barely active at the start of the season but, since then, @FBR started gathering more and more TPE, accepted a job a Oslo's AGM, looked for other ways to get involved (like simming a potential VHLM All-Star Game) and he let the world know he's team tfong, when it comes to general opinion on k-pop and Asiatic culture. Good for you. 10. Helsinki Titans select Viktor Kozlov (from HC Davos Dynamo) - C, 147 TPE The Titans are in an interesting position right now. They bought one season-worth of retiring players in Johnsson, Louth and Kane and seem like their window is closing as soon as next season. The rest of their roster is fairly young though so, if their progression goes well, the team chould be exiting rebuild mode as soon as this very offseason. For this reason, I see them simply adding to their impressive bank with players getting a lot of TPE. Viktor Kozlov might not make the team this season, but he'd join in S66, when the team's back in their true contending level. @Kuch9 has been a great member here so far, getting 8 to 12 capped TPE weekly. The only thing holding him down is really the choice of building an enforcer. It might pay off but I kind of doubt he gets look over similar players with more traditionnal builds. 11. New York Americans select Jack Lynch - RW, 139 TPE The Americans are nearing the end of the rebuilding efforts and are soon entering their Cup window. Adding Jack Lynch here means adding a forward prospect that might be able to join the team either this year or next one, though it's probably going to be next one, as @xsjack has been a steady welfare earner, getting between 6 or 8 capped TPE every week. He'd be a great depth piece in New York's quest for the Continental Cup. 12. Helsinki Titans select Denver Wolfe (from Calgary Wranglers) - D, 126 TPE Again, the Titans just pick a player that's been one of the best earners in the recent weeks. @Goonie claims between 8 and 12 capped TPE weekly, adding uncapped event TPE along the way, which helps Wolfe develop into an interesting two-way defenseman. He'll need a lot more TPE to make his build efficient though, so hopefully he keeps going. 13. Vancouver Wolves select Gritty (from Toronto Legion) - C, 174 TPE I feel bad for dropping Gritty so low. But it's basically the same story as with Jones. More TPE than a bunch of guys selected before, but @eaglesfan036's past players have been far from impressive and he tends to retire them early too. Still, I do believe he's motivated with Gritty. He already has more TPE than the amount Chat and King Gow had when they got retired (definitely separately, but maybe combined too, I'd have to check). Plus, Gritty is the VHLM's best dangler right now, as he'll try to prove to the world that, like science suggested, Puck Handling is the best attribute for offensive players. 14. Helsinki Titans select Matteo (from Vancouver Wolves) - LW, 102 TPE Another Helsinki selection? Another Helsinki selection. No need for an introduction, they want the best earners, they're getting one. Matteo has been playing great in a mid-6 role so far this season in Halifax and it's all thanks to @tunedtorock TPE earning ways, as he's quickly learning to do better graphics and really seems to enjoy doing them, claiming 6 or 8 capped TPE everyweek thanks to them. He'll be a good depth piece in S66, when Helsinki are going to be really dangerous, probably. 15. Moscow Menace selects Joe Nixon - G, 184 TPE Another draft, another goalie dropping way below his actual ranking due to needs in goaltending throughout the league. One good thing about the draft this season (for goalies, mainly, but also for everyone, really) is that there's a new team in town and they got literally no players at the moment. Sure, the expansion draft will change everything before the entry draft, but still, I don't think there's a goalie that will be made available in the expansion draft that is more interesting than Joe Nixon. @Bonzaijoe, like many before him, was given the choice of changing position and swiftly turned the offer down. It might pay off for him in the end, as Nixon is the best goaltender in this draft class by a wide margin, as he's been capping every week. In the event of Moscow getting away from the expansion draft with another goaltender, I'd still see Nixon being selected around this pick by the team that lost the goalie to Moscow, but I doubt this is happening. 16. Calgary Wranglers select Anthony Matthews (from Helsinki Titans) - C, 122 TPE The Wranglers get the last 100 TPE skater with this pick. Anthony Matthews is developping as a fun puck handling playmaker, testing eaglesfan's build advice. The result has not been so good for him so far, but it can be blamed on his time on ice being limited due to the fact that Las Vegas is stacked. @Anthony Matthews has been a good member so far, but he's been fairly inconsistent with earning TPE, claiming between 4 and 10 chained TPE. Hopefully Bushito can convince him to claim closer to 10 and he'll become an important piece for the the Wranglers in the future quest for Continental Cups. 17. HC Davos Dynamo select Dick Rash (from Seattle Bears) - RW, 89 TPE The most abrasive name in this draft class finally founds himself a team as the Dynamo could pick him with the 17th pick. @nick_716 was steady as a swiss watch, getting exactly 8 capped TPE in every of his first 4 weeks. Since then, he dropped to 2 last week and still nothing this week. Maybe tagging him here and showing how he dropped in the draft rankings will motivate him to come back and unleash his full potential. Hopefully, it works, or else Davos is picking an inactive minor leaguer in the 2nd round and Shawn would hate me for it. 18. Riga Reign selects Fylo Gibbles - D, 79 TPE A very recent recruit, Fylo Gibbles has been drawing attention as the best player to commit to the league in the last couple of weeks. @SpartanGibbles claimed a total of 19 capped TPE over the last two weeks and already wrote his rookie profile, marking him as an early fast-riser. Joining late in the season means he still definitely has a long way ahead of him before he joins the VHL, but it's fine because Riga doesn't even have room for more players at the moment. Perfect fit.

    VHLM: Scoped - Segment Three [1/2]

    VHLM: Scoped Jan 14 - Jan 23 Games 92 - 154 Nyko's Message Third segment of this terrible series amazing series. Would've had it out on Sunday/Monday but I got some exams and stuff so its a little delayed but I'm sure you guys don't mind cause no one reads this. Anyways ton of big trades as Oslo tries to rebuild for the third season in a row. So I guess I'll talk about that and it'll be pretty cool. So keep reading because if you don't @DilIsPickle will whip me. Trade Center This week was an active week of trades, with lots of players and picks exchanging hands. With the trade deadline coming trading has certainly picked up as teams realize what they need for the playoffs, and what they can lose to make it happen. As with last times segment I'll go over each of the trades, and give my opinion on who I think won the deal. Las Vegas receives: Josh Harris Rocky LaGarza S65 OSL 5th Oslo receives: S66 LVA 1st This trade was the start of Oslo's selling, which saw numerous stars change locations. Oslo once again tries to rebuild, and they start off with selling Harris, LaGarza, and a 5th to Vegas for a 1st round pick in S66. Harris is an active earning right winger who has 22 points on the season. He's sent with fellow Vegas player Rocky LaGarza, another semi active earner who mainly claims welfare. LaGarza has 31 points this season. In return Vegas sends a 1st for these players and the 5th that Trifecta used to sweeten the deal. In my opinion Vegas won the trade. They received two depth players that will help boost them into the playoffs (which they've already clinched). Oslo receives: Matthew Kai S65 SSK 2nd S66 OTT 1st Ottawa receives: Carles Puigdemont Dallas Jones A huge trade here from Trifecta, that sends the first VHLM pick and his own player to Ottawa, in exchange for Matthew Kai, a 1st, and a 2nd. Matthew Kai has 18 points this season and is a decent earner claiming the +5 welfare among with other things. On the other side of the trade is Carles Puigdemont. Carles is a top prospect this VHL draft, and a VHLM all star. He has 64 points this season and is a +33. Ottawa also bolsters their blueline by acquiring Dallas Jones. Jones had 34 points this season, with 27 of those being assists. He excels in the hitting department though, having 87 this season. Overall I think Ottawa won this trade. They need to push for the Founder's Cup and beat out Vegas, who is top of the league right now. Oslo didn't get short changed though, they received a valuable first and a good 2nd round pick in exchange for the players. Oslo receives: S65 HFX 1st S65 HFX 3rd Halifax receives: Diljodh S65 OSL 6th Halifax didn't want to be left out of @Trifecta's garage sale, and with another top player in the VHL @DilIsPickle still being on the team, Halifax wanted him. Halifax sent a 1st and a 3rd for Dil, who has 79 points in 54 games. Not much exchanged in this trade except a player and some picks, but in my opinion Halifax lost this trade. They acquired a single player who will be there for a season, in exchange for this a 1st and 3rd, which can be very good picks. Halifax did need something to boost them though, with Vegas and Ottawa also acquiring players they needed to too. Over the rest of the season we will see how this trade plays out, and if Dil will become very valuable to Halifax. Las Vegas receives: Jagger Philliefan S65 SSK 6th S65 OSL 7th Oslo receives: James Lombardi S65 SSK 3rd S65 OTT 4th Vegas once again wanting to do business with Oslo, after seeing some more left over players. They send James Lombardi, an inactive with 35 points this season, and a 3rd and 4th for Jagger Philliefan. Philliefan is a point per game defensemen, with 54 points in 52 games, 47 of those points being apples. He also plays a good defensive game, blocking shots whenever he needs to. They also received two late round picks. I believe that Vegas won this trade. A point per game defenseman is very valuable in the VHLM, and only needing to give up an inactive and a 3rd and 4th for one is a great deal. Las Vegas receives: S65 OSL 6th Halifax receives: Basaraba Moose The final trade of this week, and shockingly not one involving Oslo is a small one. Vegas trades Basaraba Moose, an active player who has 7 points this season for a 6th round pick. Not a huge trade in any sense but is Basaraba keeps active this could be a very nice trade for Halifax. Milestones Milestones are recognized throughout sports, when a rookie scores his first goal he keeps the puck. Players are celebrated when they hit 100 goals, 1,000 games, 50 shutouts. Just like nhl.com's milestone watch, I'm going to be do something similar, where I take the players and show how close they are to hitting a special VHLM milestone. Points 1. @NathanN just hit 150! 2. @Philliefan 4 from 100! 3. @Rocketman04 5 from 100! Goals 1. @Thranduil just hit 50! 2. @wcats 6 from 50! 3. @caltroit_red_flames 14 from 50! Assists 1. @Eparker24 just hit 100! 2. @kayfabe just hit 50! 3. Smitty Werbenjagermanjensen 7 from 50! Wins/Shutouts 1. @DrHexDex 1 win from 50! 2. @Devise 8 wins from 50! 3. @Bonzaijoe 8 wins from 25! Games of the Week The VHLM is full of many interesting, exciting, and just plain out weird games. Some games are blowouts, some are high scoring, and some games are very tight. This part of the segment will highlight the 3 games which I think were the best games during the whole week. If you disagree with me, post your top 3 games in the comment section. Game 120 - SSK vs LVA Saskatoon shouldn't even be a team after this game. They just decided to play make a wish kids all game or something, and got murdered 10-0. They had a whopping 8 shots compared to Vegas' 52. In the first period Vegas holds Sask. shotless while Baillie scores 22 seconds into the period. Parker follows up and scores one after, before the game goes into the brutal second period. The floodgates open 2 minutes into the period as Matthews scores his 4th of the season. 40 seconds later Sask goes to the box and Vegas notches one on the powerplay. Saskatchewan can't stay out of the box and Vegas keeps scoring on the powerplay, with the other 4 goals of the period coming on the man advantage. The third period begins and Vegas keeps on scoring, putting up 3 the last 3 goals in that period, with another one on the powerplay. @Eparker24 has a whopping 4 goals and 1 assist for 5 points, and @NathanN has a huge 6 point night. Game 94- YUK vs LVA Another day another team slaughtered by Vegas. An intense 7 minutes of hockey passes before Vegas is able to start scoring. Baillie is able to notch his 22nd, while Matthews follows with 2 more goals. Materazo grabs his 15th on the powerplay. Nathan N then scores the only goal of the second, assisted by Parker and Baillie, which seems to be a line that is clicking on all cylinders. In the third Materazo gets his 2nd of the game, and scores the final goal of the match, leading Vegas to an easy 6-0 win and another easy shutout for Joe Nixon Game 104 SSK vs OTT Now not a blowout like the other two, but this one was a close and hardfought game. Saskatoon gets the first 2 goals inthe first, Kachur scoring his 6th of the season on the PP, and LaVey finds the second with 4 minutes left in the first. Ottawa ties up the game in the 2nd, with Roll Fizzlebeef scoring 9:13 into the period, and with 2 minutes left Gritty gets a break on the penalty kill and finds the back of the net. The third period is silent as this game goes to overtime. A boring overtime is finally over and a shootout follows. @Peace doesn't know how to set shootout lines so a saskatoon bot shoots first, and misses. Kyson Blake follows that up with a miss, and the next two shooters are also stopped. The third saskatoon shooter Kip Baier misses the net, and that allows Gritty to win the game for Ottawa, which he does. Players of the Week 1. Nathan N @NathanN Nathan N had some huge games this week, with the primary one being his 6 point night vs. SSK. The VHLM leading scorer has 81 points in 52 games, with 36 of those points being goals. He's been a major key to Vegas' success. He's a +45 and has 92 hits this season. 2. Diljodh Starload @DilIsPickle Diljodh is second place in VHLM scoring, he has 79 points and is 2 points behind Nathan N. Dil scored back to back hatricks after being traded to Halifax in games 146 and 149. In those games he had 9 points combined, and has clearly shown that he can be a key to Halifax's comeback in the standings. 3. Eric Parker Parker is a high scoring defensemen this season. He has 56 assists and 18 goals for a total of 74 points in 52 games. He's been driving the Vegas' offence from the blue line. He had the huge 4 goal night and has been playing a solid defensive game with 70 hits and 67 shots blocked. He's a +45 this season and is going to be a major key in Vegas' success.

    Reapers First off, congrats to @BladeMaiden for getting an expansion franchise! Unfortunately, you have a long line of Reapers to live up to. Are you up for the challenge? Let's break down the famous Reapers who have come before and how your new franchise will live up to and even incorporate elements of the other Reapers. The Grim Reaper So right off the bat, you gotta live up to death itself. Not an easy task to be sure. Your team is going to be a constant reminder of the mortality of this league. No one lasts forever, especially in the VHLM where players are chewed up and spat out constantly. You either get to the bigs in a season or two or your pretty much stuck in minor league purgatory for the rest of your career. On the upside, Philadelphia is used to this sort of grim outlook on things, so you'll fit in well. Plus you get to use cool scythes for your hockey sticks. Heck, opposing teams should be scared that they won't return home after facing you! What other teams instill fear in everyone just by their name? Storm? Boring. Bulls? Yawn. Aces? Nah fam. 21st? The hell does that even mean? Rush, WIld? None of them have the same impact as Reapers. Reaper Who needs real sports when you can go into esports!? Reaper is one of the damage heroes from Overwatch, and in close quarters combat, few can face him and survive! Sure, maybe he gets a lot of flak for being a gothy Hot Topic reject, but seriously, if you saw someone with two shotguns in the ice rink, would you want to face that? Hell to the no. Reaper is the ideal way anyone should play hockey: slowly stomp up to the other team to knock the crap out of them, then teleport to the other side of the rink and straight up murder half their team. With half their team dead for a few seconds, you should be able to score on just about any goalie! Who am I kidding, damage heroes never go near the objective. The puck will just sit there untouched until the other team comes back. The Carolina Reaper You thought those first two were scary? Prepare yourselves. This thing will put fear in the hearts of even the toughest foe! Guinness World Records declared the Carolina Reaper the hottest chili pepper in the world (although it refused to make the claim that it was the hottest in the universe). Feed one to an opponent midgame and they are going to be needing a "penalty box" in short order. You'll be so hot, you'll melt the ice rink! Actually that might turn things into a game of water polo, in which case all bets are off. Hell just teach your whole team how to swim and cackle madly when the others drown! Who needs points in Skating when there's nothing left to skate on! Use these tactics to your advantage and you will turn your expansion franchise into a bona fide contender in no time at all!

    Since Peace has been busy recently, I'll go ahead and extend an official offer here. The Saskatoon Wild would love to bring you on as we close out the season as our 2nd line center, with the potential to start the playoffs on our first line if you go hard on some of the early TPE opportunities!

    Expansion Eminent

    Big news has hit the wire this week with both the VHL and VHLM announcing plans for Expansion. The VHLM will gain 2 teams while the VHL will only gain 1 for the time being. This news comes after a highly successful recruitment leading to many new players in the league. The VHLM expansion will primarily focus on North America while the VHL's expansion will continue the leagues international focus. Starting with the VHLM, the first expansion franchise has been granted to the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The city has strong ties to the game of hockey as well as being the only eastern American city to be granted a team. The fans in the east have long been clamoring for a team of their own to root for. The new team will be named the Philadelphia Reapers and boasts a blue, red, and yellow color scheme. With no nearby teams, the Reapers will likely look to Ottawa and Halifax as potential rivalries. Fans are already clamoring to find out what kind of cuisine will be featured at the arena. Many expect traditional Pennsylvanian fare such as cheesesteaks, scrapple, and traditional Amish foods to be among the new delicacies.The first General Manager of the team will be BladeMaiden. The second VHLM expansion team has been awarded to the city of Houston, Texas. With this expansion we have a second team located within the southern United States(the first being the Las Vegas Aces). Many fans bemoan more teams being created outside of traditional hockey markets but the league feels that in order to grow the game they must reach out to new territory. The city has long been starved for a hockey team and the VHL hopes to capitalize on this demand from local fans with a new team. The team will be named the Houston Bulls and will feature a color palette of red and yellow. Many hope that the recent expansion to the south will open up the sport to new audiences not used to the game. The most obvious rival for the Bulls will be the Las Vegas Aces. Although the Bulls will have a challenge as the Aces currently sit atop the league. The inaugural GM of the Houston Bulls will be Sonnet. The lone VHL expansion will happen halfway across the world from the VHLM expansion. The city of Moscow, Russia will be the latest site for hockey excellence. Following the trend of having the league spread across the world; Russia seemed like an obvious choice for growing the league. Russia is a country with a rich hockey history and a huge fan-base waiting for a team to support since they last lost a team in Season 10. The team will be known as the Moscow Menace and features a gold and white color scheme. The team logo is fierce and will likely lead to many merchandise sales. The GM for Moscow will be Victor who has a history of building top notch teams. Of course this expansion will affect all teams as both leagues will feature an expansion draft prior to the 65th season. We look forward to the changes that expansion will bring to the league. With so many changes the VHL must continue to adapt and improve itself to keep itself relevant. (Word Count 549) Claiming for Theme Week

    Welcome in the league, @Keller X I9I.  If you need any help getting started, there's a channel dedicated to helping newer members in the VHL Discord where veterans can answer every question you have or help you in any way you need. Or you could send a PM on here to either @Sonnet or I. Or you could ask your questions directly in this thread. VHLM GMs will come in this thread and offer you contracts to play for their team for the rest of the season. Every contract offer will be for $1,500,000. I suggest you take your time before finally accepting an offer. Think about what's best for your player.

    Kandee Cain is looking to score

    Its no secret that everyone has eyes on the stunning new goalie that has entered the league. Wendy Cain, affectionately known as Kandee, is noted by scouts for her mediocre goaltending but captivating looks. There is no doubt that she will go far in the league, but it is based on her ability to take advantage of men that people see her rising as the next hot goaltender. Available for the next VHLM entry draft, everyone has their eyes on her. Cain has been spotted walking and holding hands with S66 classmate Walter Clements, and paparazzi even caught a kiss on the cheek before they departed last Thursday night. This is of course awful news for all prospective lovers as she seems to be interested in an exclusive relationship at the time. When asked about the development, she tried to deflect by keeping the subject on hockey and her career. We will update you with future news as we learn of it. (I know this isnt 500 words idk why i put this in here lol) @BladeMaiden @cpetrella

    Ottawa Lynx press conference

    1. What do you think about getting your careers started with the Lynx? It's gonna be great, I'm super excited about joining such a great team! 2. Any preliminary opinions on which teams at the VHL level you might eventually want to play for? Any you'd rather avoid? If you don't know, that's fine I wanna play for whatever @BladeMaiden @Dangles13 @bluesfan55 and @SlashACM are on 3. How are you looking to build your player? Stylistically, and/or players you're modeling after? I just wanna be a grindy center who can help his teammates out with slick passes. 4. Long term goals? Cups, HOF, etc? Cups on cups on cups please 5. Member-wise: favorite hockey team? Bruins for sure

    S64 All-Star Game

    Honestly we used to do a top prospects game (so no one in their later seasons, just draftees) for the VHLM so if the @VHLM Commissioners want to select some teams (I don’t think it’s worth the full voting process) for it and you wanted to do one you could.

    I'm not going to say you because that's too easy. It was @Squinty but he hasn't been here in forever. I don't actually talk to too many people on the site anymore outside of the "yay team" stuff, but @Smarch and @Victor are always cool dudes. Hm...I don't really have one. There are a couple people who have different personalities and ways of thinking than me, but that doesn't mean they're bad guys. @Devise and @Banackock are always gung hoe about changing things up and I'm always like "no way, the way we've been doing it forever works fine", but I don't dislike either of them. The site needs people like them to put ideas forward and needs people like me to tell them to slow down. Obviously I'm happy to get a team in Philly, but I just wish the team name made more sense and tied in to the city. I feel like we found logos and tried to make them fit instead of coming up with team names and then finding logos. Obviously the latter takes more time and effort and admittedly it's not something I have interest in doing or would be good at. I know there was talk about putting the Houston team in Dallas or just Texas so I'm glad I brought up Houston and the old Aeros, because Houston makes much more sense than those other locations...even Austin, TX would have been better. Moscow is pretty good if we have to have a European Conference...:p

    Possible Icelandic Expansion?

    It's interesting that the portal correctly shows Oskar Ingolfsson, who would be retired if the member behind him (Meg) had still been around for the full 8 seasons rather than going inactive, but you missed both of Vilhjalmsson's brothers, Jonas and Jakub (who would definitely still be under 8 seasons) because no one ever bothered to fix them after the portal made everyone Canadian. They're also Icelandic. @Shaka @Týr and @MWHazard created at the same time and made triplets, but MWHazard was the only one to earn enough to make it into the bigs.
