    Where are they now?

    So after rising from the dead to come back into the VHL, I decided I should catch up on how some of my favorite VHLM stars are doing in their rookie seasons. I also wanted to see who was drafted to Davos with me because I missed the draft. So, here's some big VHLM names and how they're holding up one season later. 1. Ryan Kastellic @Enorama was easily one of the best defensemen out of the VHLM last season and I did a lot of work with him when I was here. He went to the Riga Reign first overall and the team currently sits atop the VHL with a 12-2-3 record. Kastellic looks to be in the same form from the VHLM with 7 points in 17 games, although his -6 looks a little shaky. However, Riga can't be upset with this pick and Ryan has shown to be a solid addition overall to their backend thus far. 2. Joseph McWolf @McWolf is just another one of those guys who you always have a positive interaction with. He also happened to go second overall to the New York Americans, who have had significantly less fortune, sitting just one spot off the bottom. McWolf may be what one calls a forward playing defense, with 12 points in 16 games but a crippling -22. I'm just gonna blame STHS for this one because this don't add up chief. 3. Sidney Crosby @SidTheKid87 look I love this guy but HOW DID YOU GO FOURTH OVERALL I'M SORRY BUT WHO LET THIS HAPPEN HELSINKI EXPLAIN. Like the kids good, real good, dominated in the minors, but fourth seems mad high. Similar to McWolf however, although he's looking a little better, 13 points in 17 games but only -13. Helsinki also isn't doing too hot sitting only one place above the Americans but there may be a reason for that. The reason being 4. Alexander Pepper @Sonnet come on now guys, you took this guy? Sievski McGee over here? This is why you're tanking. Actually though the league looks dominated by strong goaltending this year and Pepper, despite being low on the leaderboards, is still posting pretty strong numbers. His .912 save percentage makes the Helsinki defense look embarrassing (sorry sid) when you see he still averages 3.62 GA. Also I can't give him as much shit anymore as he has 300 some TPE... dammit... 5. Rhett Stoffiday @pierogituxedo (uhhhh @ broke) Rhett I've always thought was a nice guy, and through a complex series of transactions, he ended up in Davos with me. He's improved greatly since I've last been here, as has most everyone, and is one of the top goalies in the VHLM right now. Can't take the Deverux from me though, buddy, that's mine this year. 6. Tyler Smith @DrHexDex sad day, Hex went inactive before I did, and he hasn't come back. Kind of sucks as I loved playing with him and he was really involved when he was here, but sometimes people gotta dip. So now he rides the pine in Halifax. Rip.

  8. Hey boys, been a minute. I was kind of a hypocrite for getting on people for disappearing with no communication but life gets in the way sometimes. I’ve had a lot to sort out in a short period of time and how my imaginary goaltender was performing wasn’t exactly my top priority. I want to apologize to everyone on the magazine because you guys are great and put in a lot of work on that, but I can’t put the time commitment to it anymore. I’ll try to come back to the league though, I just needed to drop this for a while. I lost and uncle, almost lost a brother, so as you could imagine I wanted things sorted before I came back. Once again I apologize to everyone I ended up screwing over by vanishing but I’m back for now. This league was honestly really fun and it sucked to have to leave it especially knowing how great a lot of you guys are but I promise I’ll be around here for a while now. Also I don’t remember the word count for VHL.com articles so this is like 200 words if it’s supposed to be 250 then rip. #bringbackthepeppervmertzbeef

  14. VHLM Weekly Article by: Riley Johnston The most recent VHLM draft saw the beginnings of a new Halifax based franchise begin to take shape. Luckily for the expansion team the draft was incredibly deep, allowing them to pick up a lot of young talent. Today we dive into who will establish the franchise this upcoming season. 1st round, 3rd overall, 160 TPA Defenseman Tzuyu With their first pick Halifax looks to build a back end that can help fill out their front end too. Tzuyu is a talented puck moving defenseman, her short run in the VHLM last season doesn't give a whole lot to go on, but her playstyle looks promising to help generate offense out of the back for Halifax. 2nd round, 9th overall, 65 TPA Right Winger Nikita Flipachyev A sniper in the most definitive sense, Flipachyev looks to be the goalscorer in Halifax this coming season. With no previous VHLM experience the Russian Rookie may very well become the next scoring phenom out on the ice. 2nd round, 12th overall, 145 TPA Defenseman Shawn Glade Another veteran offensive defenseman, Glade has played an entire season in the VHLM before being drafted to Halifax. His numbers prove promising, ending the regular season +52 with 27 points. Glade also proved to be a key playoff players, averaging 1.1 PPG in the playoffs. 3rd round, 15th overall, 76 TPA Defenseman B.B. Nat Continuing to build a strong D core, Nat put up crazy numbers in the VHLM last season, scoring 71 points in 72 games. There are some concerns about Nat playing too aggressively, with his +- coming out to only +16, but paired with a defensive defenseman Nat will prove a powerful addition to the back end. 4th round, 21st overall, 40 TPA Goaltender Cole Mertz Mertz is the first of two goaltending prospects Halifax acquired during the draft. Mertz relies on speed over technique to make saves, making him a high risk/high reward player for the time being. Given time to develop though he may become a starting goaltender for Halifax in the coming seasons. 4th round, 23rd overall, 47 TPA Center Mike Lavallee Lavallee is a very well rounded rookie center, there's no real holes in his play other than him being inexperienced. If he continues to develop in the way he is now Lavallee will prove to be an excellent power forward for the team. 6th round, 32nd overall, 30 TPA Left Winger Aaron Butcher Halifax waited until late in the draft to start developing offense, and as a result we see a lot of prospects with potential, but not a whole lot to assess them on. Aaron Butcher is one of those players. We expect to see a lot of growth out of him but right now it's hard to determine the direction he will go. 6th round, 33rd overall, 36 TPA Center Hunter Kidd Kidd played a season with the Las Vegas Aces last year, and didn't prove much. He posted a 13 point season, ended with a -21, and ultimately showed little to no development. This will be a hit or miss pick for Halifax, as Kidd may not develop at all. Should he start to develop though, Halifax will have landed themselves a nice addition to their offense. 7th round, 39th overall, 0 TPA Center Nathan MacKinnon There's nothing to be said about MacKinnon, he may exhibit growth later but as of right now he hasn't even shown potential. 8th round, 47th overall, 32 TPA Goaltender Tyler Smith The second goaltending prospect out of the draft for Halifax, Smith is a well rounded goalie who similar to Lavallee, is only lacking in experience. Given time Smith will become an outstanding goaltender in all aspects, and is expected to grow into a potential starter for Halifax. 9th round, 51st overall, 30 TPA Defenseman Jeremy Myalls An interesting prospect, Myalls looks as though he will grow into a strong defensive defenseman within a few seasons. Should he develop quickly he could be the perfect pairing for B.B. Nat to counter his aggressive style of play. 10th round, 57th overall, 0 TPA Goaltender Potato Akin to MacKinnon, there's nothing to be said about Potato. (This article was written on the 10th so any TPA after that point will not be reflected)

    Have we Exhausted V1?

    Maybe I’m just an idiot but doesn’t this aspect of randomness kind of lend to some realism? If the team with the best guys won every time the sim wouldn’t be that exciting, but if the underdogs get lucky here or there it certainly makes things more interesting. I mean it doesn’t happen often but every once in a while the WC makes the finals in real life too.
