  2. Hello everyone, and welcome back to another VSN draft update! 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! The past couple weeks have drastically changed the outlook of this draft's depth, so let me not waste any more time in covering it all.

  3. Well it took me a week of pondering if I should do an actual version of this rather than my meme one of 'What if I wasn't a @dlamb multi' alternate universe. 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

  4. 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.

    Alternative Rulebook

    Alternative Rulebook At first, I thought this was a dumb idea, we will just read about what if I was not drafted here or what if I was not traded, etc. Then I had the thought that this topic could be a great way to bring up changes to the league. The ideas that people keep suggesting in passing they could make a detailed media spot about their changes and how the league would look if this change were already implemented in the past. So let us go through some of the suggestions that have been made in passing and see what the league would look like if they were already written in the

  8. Sooooo hey there! As you are probably guessing by the title, I've been a year since I joined the Victory Hockey League. 1 whole year. Yes, true, I didn't really do anything for the first month or so, but it still counts. I think. ANYWAYS, I have some people to thank. Quite a few, in fact. A lot of GM's, a lot of friends, all of whom helped me throughout this year. We'll start from the beginning. @Berocka. One-time GM of the Mississauga Hounds, approached me with my first contract. @Rayzor_7 GM of the Minnesota Storm, GM when I put up my 95 point season (great

As the season begins to wind down, many teams are in the tightly-contested playoff race, with some teams such as the Warsaw Predators, Helsinki Titans, and the Chicago Phoenix leading the pack. On the other side, some teams such as the Los Angeles Stars, New York Americans, and the Toronto Legion try to shake off their old losing ways, and adopt a winning culture. With many trades occurring, many storylines developing, and the playoff picture becoming ever-so-clea

California Rapper/Singer/Songwriter and Actor Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) brought that light and more on his fourth studio album 3.15.20. The LP sees Gambino take on a more futuristic, dystopian vibe–talking about how computers are altering the world as we know it, with references to human evolution on Algorhythm. That’s just one example. 3.15.20 is all about moving forward, and recognizing the

    dear diary (round 2)

    Dear diary, It’s late. I read a book today. It was nice. It really made me think about how tiny decisions can really snowball in your life to end up having a huge impact on the big picture of things. I think that applies to the Phoenix just like everything else. Of course, last season could have gone very differently. Had each individual person not joined us, had we not run the lines that we did, had we lost touch with each other - it all could have come crashing down. But it didn’t. Well, I guess it kind of did, but the best place to start when sharing a thought i

  16. You look around the league and you see the same commonality in all of the logos......They all reflect their city or team in some way. But when it comes to Mexico City’s logo, that isn’t the case. When you look at the Mexico City logo it looks to be an indigenous chief, holding the letters that spell out the team name. Nothing to do with Mexico. Mexico needs a new logo that reflects the rich culture of Mexico, something that makes sense. The colour scheme of the team are fine as is, but we need a more representative logo. This logo just doesn’t sit in line with the rest of

The San Diego Marlins are a VHLM team on the rise under the capable leadership of GM @thadthrasher, AGM @Eldredman, and Captain @LuluSalesAway From the bottom of the juniors barrel to a winning record of 30-28-6 and 66 points in one season is quite a feat and good enough to have already clinched a playoff spot. Once we get to the playoffs, we know we will be playing the part of David to the Goliaths of the VHLM, Mississauga, Saskatoon, and

  18. I always remind myself to be humble. Am I the best at sim league graphics? No. Do I suspect that people actually say 'wow awesome graphic' just because they are scared I'll bully them if they don't? Yes. Due to no trivia, I have to do another written on top of BUST OR LICK™ so I decided to officially update the graphic tiers of VHL. The last update (original ranking) was done in S73, so there's been 4 seasons worth of time for people to establish themselves in the graphic game. People can work their way up the tiers or fall down the tiers with inactivity. You can make whatever tier

  19. Hi everyone, it Sunday and I need TPE. I'm gonna write about how I was recruited to the league. I joined the VHL in early September 2020, narrowly after my 13th birthday, which was a relief considering the disocrd age policy. Anyway, I hadn't heard about the VHL until around then, from a site called capfriendly. Capfriendly was meant to be a site where you could follow cap space, signings, trades, etc. in the NHL. I, as a massive hockey fan, got into the forum part of it, which allowed you to play as a GM of a team, managing cap space and trades and such. Then one fateful day, when I was looki

To be fair I think I was pretty lucky to get the first expansion GM job back in S65 as I mentioned my interest while it was being discussed in the BOG and blues just went with it – I guess there was a bit of name recognition and a lot of the new member base wasn't ready for such responsibility. However, although I was giving off a good impression 3-4 seasons into my comeback, laying my hands on all available TPE like in the good ol' days, I kne

And to be honest like everyone I had zero clue what I was doing or in for. I tried looking through forums on how to’s and honestly after accepting my what had been a good relationship with Ir I ended up loving the league.

    Too Much to Handle..?

    Being drafted into the VHL and VHLM at a young age is a privilege that most athletes don't always have, especially being a key player on your team from the start. Nicholas, at just 18, is living his best life. He is the San Diego Marlins line one winger as well as their superstar from the shadows. He has been averaging just over a point a game with 61 points in just 54 games played. Being San Diego's points leader is not an easy job, especially coming from a rookie. Nicholas is doing all that he can just to prove he belongs on the roster, but thankfully he isn't alone. His teammates have guide

What we want to do is bring to you, the readers, some sweet knowledge about the VHLM's draft eligible players. The S78 class is complete and S79 draftees are already flocking to the waiver wire i

  27. Fun fact, it has lots to do with Mexico City! Mexico City is the modern day name for Tenochtitlan, the capital of the Aztec empire. Aztec kings wore ceremonial headdresses like the one in the logo. I had no part in choosing or making the logo, and agree that it's not a super great one, but it does have strong ties to Mexico City. The logo makes sense, it is friggin badass, and I love the Kings nickname because it's not the classic stereotypical Mexican team and pays homage to the history of the country. The eagle is more symbolic of modern day Mexico, yeah,

It's hard to imagine very many athletes appearing on the world stage from Nuuk, however, one family has managed to have a group of three siblings all make it to the VHLM with a fourth sibling coming next season. This family is of course the Reinharts. They are composed of Asher, Reylynn, Jerome, and Tyler Reinhart. Tyler Reinhart and his twin Jerome Reinhart both grew up playing hockey on a line together for Greenland's

  34. in to the S68-69 offseason, Charlie Paddywagon had a decision to make. Should he re-sign with Davos or explore the opportunities in free agency? Paddywagon felt gratitude toward @ShawnGlade, the GM of Davos at the time. In the S66 VHL draft Mr. Glade took a huge risk on Paddywagon, making him the first defenseman taken in the draft at 6th overall. That meant a lot to Paddywagon. It made the decision of who to sign with pretty simple. Paddywagon told Mr. Glade he wished to re-sign with Davos, but because this was his agent’s first player in the VHL, he wanted to experience what bein

Let me explain how this league came around. The year was about 1967 and a guy named Steve and his friend Bill raced to see who could eat the most hot dogs in 10 minutes. Well, this intrigued many people and they would line up to come to see it happen. Then people would start having competitions of their own between friends and family. This would slowly over time turn into an annual event

As for the VHL, I was able to get back on my feet and start on a new player retiring my old one with the help of some people I met last time I was here and some new people. Pretty funny how a kid who can’t use discord retired his player. Anyways moving on to what I’ve been doing recently, it’s been filled with a ton of exciting stuff. During my time off, I’ve focused mainly on baseball and g

    Pick Again...

    Everyone pretty much knows at this point there are two things that go together well: the Prague Phantoms and late round draft picks (early round draft picks, not so much). However, let's say our current picks were not available to us in the last 2 drafts. With the benefit of hindsight, who should we have taken, if we were prevented from taking the people we did? S77 draft, 43rd pick: Kirby Pandora This was a particularly hard one - Nicholas Mariani @Mistxh J is already 26th in TPE for this draft class, despite being picked 43rd and being a good bit lower than 43rd at th

Unfortunately I'm not an expert explicitly in shower related stuff as I go with getting the "50 in 1 shampoo, conditioner, Bluetooth enabled, etc." products, but I would say for soap bars in general when using them, I just rubbed them enough into my hands and then ran my hands through my hair. I'd be guessing it's easier with the shampoo bar to get it all over your hands, but maybe just rub it hard enough into your hands and try that?

I'm pretty sure there's a discord channel and thunderdome thread for people to bonk me, and I GM the Las Vegas Aces who has done nothing but lose the past 10 or so games. So why am I saying this? Well as I have expressed time and time again, my current and only player so far in the VHL has a passing build. What does that have to do with what I said earlier? Well I like pain and passing builds are somewhat pain. Well som
