  2. Thanks for the comment. Knew there had to be a good reason...
  3. Who is the nest up for trade bait? Cgy has traded a lot of assets who are we moving next and why? I'm thinking I (Lando Baxter) could be. I'm one of the oldest and am enjoying my best offensive season ever. I've been told I'm not going anywhere but never say never. If you could change our team colours what would you change them to? Green and black. Red and black fit Calgary better, but I'm from Ireland and am down with hockey teams in green. Who is the weirdest Player in our locker room? Wlodzimierz Zajaczkowski. Dude is built like a truck and I think has been punched in the head too many times. Are you more of a forum LR member or a Discord LR member and why? I've tried Discord a few times, but keep running into issues so I guess I'd say forum for now. What inspires you to keep going in the tough times. My Lord and Savious Jesus Christ. And Redbull. Oddest thing you have slipped into someone else's hockey bags. I've put a Bible in everyone's bag. The guys don't appreciate it very much. But they tell me the pages are good for rolling joints with, so whatevs.

  5. I was interested to know how many times my guy, Lando Baxter was drafted in the Victory Hockey Fantasy League. He wasn't good enough in his first two years, but this year I was happily surprised to see his name popping up. That gave me the idea to analyze which players were drafted the most and if there were any surprises. I also linked their TPE and fantasy points so we can see who’s hot and who’s not. Disclaimer: I did my best to capture all the counts, but I could have missed one or two here or there. The stats and TPE were also captured a few days ago. First we look at the goalies. GOALIE NAME COUNT POS TPE Wins Shut Outs Saves Fantasy Points Alexander Pepper 15 G 778 10 0 472 43.04 Kallis Kriketers 14 G 750 13 2 530 60.1 Roger Sterling 14 G 691 17 2 630 71.1 Tristan Iseult 13 G 758 8 0 412 36.84 Ismond Kingfisher 12 G 754 11 2 712 70.84 Johnny Havenk Carison 8 G 464 14 3 552 67.64 Brick Wahl 6 G 528 8 0 703 57.21 Finn Davison 6 G 451 10 1 794 70.58 It’s easy to see why Alexander Pepper was the only goalie chosen in every draft—he has the highest TPE. However, he's off to a really slow start with only 43 points. Compare his numbers to Johnny Havenk Carison and Finn Davison who were left off almost half the fantasy teams. They are bringing in the most bang for your buck if you drafted them quite late. It will be interesting to see if Pepper can make up the difference by season’s end. I wonder if I shouldn't have linked the games played as well. After a quik glance I can see one big issue for those that drafted Tristan Iseult. He seems to be splitting time with his back up, Joe Nixon. Thirteen managers drafted him and are now cursing Vancouver's goalie rotation. Next up, our defenseman: D-MAN NAME COUNT POS TPE Goals Hits Blocks Assists Fantasy Points Joseph McWolf 15 D 784 4 79 55 18 85.8 Robert Malenko 15 D 636 11 56 42 27 93.8 Tzuyu 15 D 589 4 21 35 29 69.2 Ryan Kastelic 14 D 828 6 13 37 16 60.2 Maxim Kovalchuk 14 D 689 5 72 44 24 83.6 Paolo Nano 13 D 418 6 36 50 28 87.2 Marvin Harding 12 D 757 9 83 40 18 84.6 Samuel Gate 12 D 610 4 74 45 26 84.8 Alvaro Jokinen 12 D 554 5 12 67 20 86.0 Ryan Sullivan Jr 11 D 505 4 47 42 15 66.0 Shawn Glade 8 D 639 6 52 37 24 76.0 Sidney Crosby 8 D 590 3 49 48 19 73.2 Lando Baxter 7 D 423 2 5 54 22 70.2 Piotr Jerwa 5 D 422 7 23 53 14 75.0 Luc-Pierre Lespineau-Lebrunette 4 D 576 2 125 55 6 79.0 Dan Montgomery 3 D 491 4 49 57 11 74.4 Elasmobranch Fish 3 D 259 6 81 62 9 86.8 Rauno Palo 2 D or F 798 14 5 21 10 55.8 Jagger Philliefan 1 D 370 1 14 43 14 53.2 Robert Malenko and Joseph McWolf were picked in every draft and they are looking as good as advertised. Tzuyu, on the other hand, is not. It’s easy to see why—the hits and blocks just aren’t there. If the fantasy league was based on points only, I’d understand, but since hits are worth 0.2 and blocks are worth 0.8 Tzuyu just shouldn’t be a top pick. Ryan Kastelic is also an interesting pick. His fantasy points are even less than Tzuyu but you have to wonder if he just hasn’t taken off yet. His TPE is far and away the highest, but the assists and the hits aren’t there. His hit totals in his last two seasons were 71 and 109, but is on pace for 41. His fantasy managers (including me) are hoping for a big improvement from Kastelic over the rest of the season. Because hits and blocks are a big part of this fantasy league, rookie Elasmobranch Fish is looking like a future stud. He has the lowest TPE among those chosen, but has a perfect storm of playing on a team (Calgary) who is struggling and is built for hits and shot blocks. Since Calgary spends a lot of time in their own end, Fish has ample time to get defensive stats (3rd in hits and 2nd in blocks) and help his fantasy managers Lastly, the forward group. FORWARD NAME COUNT POS TPE Goals Hits Blocks assists Fantasy Points Jasper Canmore 15 F 1583 13 52 22 14 68.0 Edwin Preencarnacion 15 F 1061 10 18 12 20 53.2 Veran Dragomir 15 F 1058 21 35 9 25 81.2 Podrick Cast 15 F 1053 14 11 10 18 56.2 Matt Thompson 15 F 1042 16 60 12 16 69.6 Beau Louth 15 F 1003 22 14 25 23 89.8 Oyorra Arroyo 15 F 920 27 20 12 24 91.6 Sebastian Ironside 15 F 843 15 67 10 26 77.4 Jake Davis 15 F 733 16 52 12 25 77.0 Vyacheslav Smirnov 13 F 731 16 10 10 15 57.0 Elias Dahlberg 13 F 542 14 79 19 23 82.0 Rylan Peace 12 F 560 19 25 20 19 78.0 Mark Gebauer 12 F 399 15 22 11 21 64.2 Julian Borwinn 11 F 796 13 35 12 11 53.6 Vaydar Odinsson 11 F 572 13 115 5 13 66.0 Leph Twinger 10 F 778 12 103 12 13 67.2 Kronos Bailey 10 F 680 13 127 8 20 77.8 Vesto Slipher 9 F 811 9 17 17 20 55.0 Ryuu Crimson 5 F 732 17 57 6 15 65.2 Dan Wilinsky 5 F 634 11 65 9 9 51.2 Smitty Werbenjagermanjensen 5 F 393 1 98 56 12 78.4 Randoms 4 F 549 11 115 5 4 53.0 Roctrion King 4 F 502 9 14 5 6 30.8 The Charm 3 F 785 13 16 6 20 54.0 Carles Puigdemont 3 F 396 10 11 9 10 39.4 Evan R.

But all 9 were not equal. Podrick Cast and Edwin Preencarnacion are almost 40 fantasy points behind the top two guys— Oyorra Arroyo and Beau Louth. These four offer an interesting comparison. Their hits and blocks are all comparable. The difference? Goals. Since goals are worth 2, while assists are worth 1, this fantasy league rewards the big goal scorers. Arroyo and Louth are #1 and #2 in VHL goals and are therefore the most valuable fantasy forwards. Smitty Werbenjagermanjensen is the forward version of d-man Elasmobranch Fish. Young and relatively low TPE, they both have high hits and blocks. Among the top hitters, Werbenjagermanjensen is also far exceeding all forwards at shot blocks. At the time of writing, his 78 fantasy points is right up there with some of the league’s best scorers like Veran Dragomir and Sebastian Ironside. Some fantasy hockey leagues put a cost on NHLers (like their cap hit) and only allow each team a set amount to spend on their players. It crossed my mind to do it here but use the VHLers TPE as the player cost. While it would take probably too much administration, it would be fun looking for cheap players that put out big fantasy points. It would also mean guys like Jasper Canmore would never get picked. 1,583 TPE for only 68 fantasy points would be a team killer. Vesto Slipher is also interesting. You’d think a player with over 800 TPE should have been picked in almost every league—but he wasn’t. And it’s a good thing too. His 55 fantasy points is one of the lowest tracked in my analysis. Overall, the players chosen the most are often the players with the highest TPE (notable exceptions include Shawn Glade, Vesto Slipher and Rauno Palo). This makes sense if a manager isn't interested in putting in the effort to win their fantasy league. However if you look closer, there are hidden gems that are built for doing well here. Finding guys like Smitty Werbenjagermanjensen, Kronos Bailey, Elasmobranch Fish and Luc-Pierre Lespineau-Lebrunette, especially with a late round pick, go a long way to getting you some juicy TPE from the Victory Hockey Fantasy League. - 1,465 words
  6. ARGH! Baxter's point streak ends at six... That'll do. I guess.
  7. 94 Vancouver Wolves @ Calgary Wranglers 95 Moscow Menace @ New York Americans 96 Seattle Bears @ Helsinki Titans 97 HC Davos Dynamo @ Riga Reign
  8. Top 10 Rookies on Stats Leaders page (https://vhlportal.com/stats/individual) are showing players who are not rookies.
  9. Anyone else notice that this season's Top 10 Rookie Scoring Leaders are not really rookies at all?  I know this because my 3rd year Baxter is in the Top 10.
