  1. 1. How do you feel Warsaw performed in our opening weekend? I think we underperformed a little bit, but it may be more indicative of a larger problem. I suspect it'll take time for us to gel a bit, as we're working with multiple new players. The first 15 games or so are ones I never put much stock in. 2. How has your player performed so far? Aloe has similarly underperformed a bit. It can be a bit frustrating at times to work with brand new teammates, but I think it'll work better with some time and adjustments. 3. Does our record (2-2-1, 4th in EU Conference)
  2. Warsaw, Poland - A narrow win over the Moscow Menace was followed by a crushing 8-4 loss immediately thereafter. It was a miserable performance all around, featuring a second line that went -4. "Here's your seasonal reminder: do not pay too much attention to the first ten or fifteen games. They're always misleading," veteran and assistant captain Aloe Dear stated, beaming, "and remember Toronto from last season or Malmo from several seasons ago - a handful of early wins don't make you a world-beater." "We've been very bad and championship material on separate occasions
  3. 1. The S79 VHL draft finished up earlier tonight, we added a solid goaltender in @Donno100 . What are your thoughts on the draft for Warsaw? I'd say the draft went well. From a user perspective, I'm definitely a fan of Donno and am optimistic about the future of Warsaw. 2. What are your player's goals for this upcoming season? Wins. I've had my day in the limelight; if it turns out Chris or Dakota want to go all-out this season and win some individual awards, it's important to share the love! If not, I want another championship. 3. Do we have another shot at t

  5. Is this a stock photo? You're darned right it is. "I Don't Have Much Free Time. How Do I Maximize My Sim League Experience?" I wish I had a clever intro for you, good reader. But I want to cut to the point: with limited free time, what strategies work to make sim leagues and their vibrant communities enjoyable? 1) Be intentional about WHEN you engage with sim leagues. I know that the busier I am with work, the less I want to do it. It's tempting to try to alt-tab to or pop the app open for Discord depending on whether I'm sitting at my laptop or trying
  6. Warsaw, Poland - Well, just some 32 hours into free agency, the theoretical biggest agent on the market has made their decision: it's back to Warsaw for reigning MVP Aloe Dear. She signed a 1-year, $5,500,000 deal with the eastern European team, who capped off last season with a finals series for the ages after placing first in the European Conference during the regular season. "I'm beyond pleased to remain here in Poland for one last go," she commented, waving her Predators flags at a recent presser, "after Dakota's agent was named GM of the team and he clearly wasn't going to be

  8. 1. After winning our 1st cup in franchise history, where does the team go from here? I think we should try to run it back. Depending on how the team looks after free agency, that's a distinct possibility. 2. Describe former Warsaw GM .sniffuM's tenure in 3 words. Bottom to top! 3. What player, NHL or VHL, do you model your game after? NHL? What is the NHL? I model my game after Mike Szatkowski, one of the original great scorers; this is especially the case after switching to center. 4. Is there a city that you thought deserved a VHLE franchis
  9. Review Drafting goalies is always tricky! I feel like we've seen them drop so much further than anticipated (especially with excellent classes) in prior drafts because there are so few slots, and oftentimes middle earners don't get a good shot at playing anything beyond a backup role. You did a good job in reading these four teams' current goalie situations (especially Chicago/Prague, as it's easy to have rose-colored glasses on when a team is really good). One consideration for this article I'd have put forth was Warsaw, who has an IA goalie who's right around the middle in TPE (500
  10. Review Free agent prognostication! This is one of my favorite parts of the off-season, and perhaps even moreso this season since both dlamb and I are up to go to different teams. I think it's interesting that you've thrown several factors into play, e.g. Lamb's current GM candidacy and Su's prior stint with Vancouver as motivations for their likely future destinations. But I also would've liked to see some more consideration for teams that would be willing to offload some players to rebuilding teams so that more options outside of Davos & NY could be considered. Overall, I think this
  11. In! Don't have enough time to manage though
  12. Warsaw, Poland - As the Predators lifted the cup -- a grueling six-game series against a dynastic Seattle franchise that's claimed five championships from the last ten seasons -- forward Aloe Dear couldn't help but sit back and bask in the glory just a little. "I was speechless," Dear commented, just an hour or so after scoring the game-winning goal, "I know things can't be the same in the VHL - it changes too fast - but realizing we finished the season on top was incredible." The Dane, now five full seasons into her career, shared her rookie season (S74) with fellow ce
  13. 1. We just won the first cup in franchise history. WARSAW WHERE YOU AT??? Asleep. Because I'm so tired FROM LIFTING THE CUP AYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY 2. Got an early prediction for next season's cup winner? This one's hard to say. Lots of possible off-season movement this time around, so I don't think we're likely to see the same landscape we do now. 3. How do you think the addition of the VHLE in S80 will affect the quality of VHL play? It'll be tougher to be a star with stand-out stats now that the 'floor' of the league will be higher. 6. What sh
  14. 4 July Season 78 – "Even when I'm in Prague or Warsaw I hear so much about the American Independence Day!" Predators forward Aloe Dear followed up a narrow 2-1 Warsaw victory over Prague with the above exclamation after a reporter asked her about her old VHLM teammates in Houston and Las Vegas. Relatively few of her minors teammates were actually American, but the veteran had nothing but positive words for them. "I think it's always exciting to celebrate the birth of a nation! Chris [Reynolds, winger and linemate] is an American and we have had little flags flying aroun
  15. 1. We survived an early scare from Malmo to take the series 4-1. How do we stay fresh going up against Prague in the European Conference finals? We'll do what we can from the player perspective. Our approach to the game comes from coaching down otherwise. 2. What has been the most surprising moment of the postseason so far? Dropping the 2OT game to Malmo. That was pretty unexpected and a bit frustrating, but we turned it around in quick order. 3. Who was our MVP in the Malmo series? I would have to think Uhtred and Dakota would be our MVPs. They had multi
  16. Warsaw, Poland - After a full regulation and two overtimes, the Warsaw Predators found themselves at a loss, literally. Malmo's Tui Sova -- assisted by Muffbeav, the former Predators defenseman-turned-forward who joined Malmo this offseason -- knocked the puck in just over eight minutes into the period to hand a 1-0 series lead to the Nighthawks. "It's frustrating to face Malmo," Warsaw forward Aloe Dear commented in the post-game presser, "we were 1-4 against them in the regular season in spite of a clean 12-point margin of victory for first in the conference. They squeaked into
  17. 1. We have made the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season. What can you take from past playoff experiences into this latest round of postseason play? More experience. My stat for experience literally went up this past season, but otherwise my build is pretty similar to how it's been. 2. We won the Victory Cup for the second consecutive season, this time sharing the award with Chicago. What does taking this award mean to our team and the legacy of this group of players? I know some people say it's cursed (it really isn't), but I think it's a double-edged sword at the

  19. Review Most people enjoy a redemption arc, and I'm certainly among them. This is written well, offers sincere appreciation for members that do hard work, and more importantly offers constructive criticism both for the site/community and self-reflection presented in a manner that flows logically from paragraph to paragraph. I think it's incredibly important to examine your past actions whether you're well-respected or even beloved in the VHL -- or, as you've ostensibly personally experienced, feeling looked down upon or even turned away at your low points. Both the VHL as a who
