  1. This is beautiful! Thank you for making this!
  2. I arrived at the house of Apollo Skye. For those who don't know, Apollo Skye is one of the best goaltenders in the history of the Victory Hockey League. He is 4th on the all-time shutout leaders list and has won 4 individual awards and 1 cup. I knocked on his door. After a few minutes, he opened the door and invited me inside. We talked for a bit, just hanging out. Apollo went back to school after his esteemed career, getting a business degree and starting a non-profit organization called "The Skye Project", which tries to provide clean water to developing nations. After talking, we had dinner and I went to sleep. I always seem to arrive at night. I woke up at 4 in the morning, but Skye wasn't awake, so I just made myself some coffee. Skye woke up at 6 and made us a breakfast of toast, bacon, and eggs. Who knew a former goalie would be so good at cooking? Then at 7:30, we went to the gym and worked out. I noticed, almost every single former star I visited seemed to work out everyday. He then went for a meeting at his job and is currently a Business Analyst. At noon, he came back and we had lunch, which he also cooked. Then we went to one of "The Skye Project" charity events at one, which was a charity golf classic. We came back at 5 and we relaxed. Then, at 6, we went to a pickup hockey game and had a fun game. At 8 we came back and watched the NHL Playoffs. We kept watching until it was 10, then we went to sleep. I began my interview. "What part of your career are you most proud of?" I asked him. "That's a tough one, but I would have to say my two MVP awards. There are so many great players in the VHL and you only get to play 8 seasons. Only 1 player a season gets the MVP and to be awarded it twice is quite the honor." He replied. To win one MVP is impressive enough, to win two is really impressive. I then asked him, "Now, on the flip side, any part of your career you regret?" He thought about it for a while and then answered my question. "Probably my rookie season. I came into the VHL overconfident after a great season in the VHLM. I wasn't ready for the big leagues. I had to refine my style and learn to control my rebounds better. I wish I could have started off on a better note. I also regret my last season, even though my individual numbers were good, we only put up 15 wins. I feel like I still had the skill to put up another MVP like season but it just wasn't in the cards." His first and last seasons. Not much of a surprise considering those are usually 2 hard seasons to go through. I asked him my final question. "What do you think was a key part to your success in the VHL?" "I think my work ethic and consistency were big contributors to my success. Every week I was training to get better. I didn't let the ups and downs of my career get to me and kept pushing to become the best I could be." I thanked him for his time and he brought me to the airport so I could go back to Davos. We said our goodbyes and I went on the plane.
  3. "I just wanna say as much as I love Stephen A., I have never talked to him, but if I did, his take on my reaction was correct. I was befuddled."
  4. 1. What kind of player would you describe yourself as? 2. What's your favourite chirp? 3. If you weren't a hockey player, what would you be? 4. What's your jersey number and why? 5. What is your biggest pet peeve?
  5. 2) Rylan, as I have had experience with him and as he is a close friend and a great player. But, if you mean "new" new, then it has to be Dragomir. Always admired him and I'm excited to be able to play with a veteran like him. 3) I don't just believe, I know we will. 4) I got a message from Riga's GM at the time, Hedgehog. He told me I was traded.
  6. 1. What's your jersey number and why? 2. Favourite NHL Team? 3. What are your goals in the VHL? 4. Would you rather play with wet gear or no cup? 5. What city would you want to give a VHL/VHLM to?
  7. 4. My favourite thing about the VHL is the community. It's great and fun! 5. If I could, I would add more TPE opportunities. 1. Although we aren't at the top of the league, it's still has been a fun and a good season.
  8. A: (Oyorra) Arroyo Age doesn't seem to be a problem when it comes to Arroyo, who is currently in his 7th season in the Victory Hockey League. While he might not be as noticeable as he was last season, the left winger has still been a star, getting 25 goals and 19 assists for 44 points in 40 games. Despite he might not be topping the lists like he did last year, there's no doubt that he is one of the best players in the league and is the best "A" player. B: (Julian) Borwinn This was a hard letter to do, due to the scarcity of B names in the VHL, but it's no question that Borwinn is a great player. While he might not be talked about as much as the other players, he is still a star and is doing great. The Helsinki winger has 26 goals and 31 assists for a total of 57 points in 57 games. The former top rookie and 3rd overall pick has been doing great in the VHL and is one of Helsinki's most reliable players and one of the VHL's best players. C : (Ryuu) Crimson Before you shout "bias", I have to say I discussed this with some other writers. Crimson was great in Riga, where he won the cup and became the first rookie to win Playoff MVP, and he is doing well in Davos, scoring 20 goals and having 21 assists in 41 games. The winger has been making a name for himself in the past couple of years and is a great player overall. He is a great goal scorer and has proven himself to be a star. The trade has given an opportunity to prove that he is a great player.  Honourable Mention: Johnny Havenk Carison I'm not going to do Honourable Mentions for all of them, only for ones where I feel like it's close. Carison might not have as much stuff on his résumé as Crimson, but he has proven himself his season. When Carison is in between the pipes, you can trust him to be reliable and spectacular. So far, Carison has a record of 20-19-1, 2.86 GAA, and 0.916 Save Percentage in 40 games. Carison is on fire this season and has proven himself to be a great goalie for the Nighthawks. D: (Veran) Dragomir Dragomir was an offensive force last season and is still showing his offensive prowess this season, so far scoring 19 goals, 17 assists, making a total of 36 points. The veteran winger has been one of the best forwards for the Dynamo and one of the best players in the league. This superstar is one of the most exciting players to watch and Dragomir is probably the best player in Davos. Honourable Mention: Elias Dahlberg Dragomir has a teammate who was kind of close when it comes to the best active D player. Dahlberg is a great young solid forward for Davos with 17 goals, 20 assists, making 37 points. He may not be as good as Dragomir but Dahlberg is a great player too. 
  9. 1. It's great! I get to reunite with Peace, Glade is coming over, and it's a great opportunity for me to have a new start. 2. Don't really have an opinion because it already happened, but would've been nice if we got Shawnomir. 3. Yes because I feel like every team has their plans and not much will include trading.
