  2. This week, Halifax 21st GM, Shawn Glade announced his resignation from his post after two successful VHLM seasons in a row. In his first season with the 21st, he led the first year expansion team to a first place finish, in the process putting together a very stacked team of players, many of whom are now big name VHL players. The team showed a lot of promise and the season included a big showing from youngster Karl von Moltke (KVM), who, after being picked up in one of the most one-sided trades in VHLM history, posted astounding numbers, with 45 goals and 80 assists for 125 total points. Everything seemed to be in place for Halifax and they dominated semi-finals, beating the Saskatoon Wild four games to zero. Halifax had all the pieces to win the founder's cup but ultimately fell short, dropping the final series in four games, to the third seeded Ottawa Lynx. Although it came to a crushing end, this inaugural expansion season was still a huge accomplishment for first year GM, Shawn Glade and he began to prove himself as a crafty, quality general manager. In season 63, Halifax wasn't left with a lot to work with but Shawn remained confident and utilized what he had. Not being able to snag anyone decent in the draft, he turned to the only other way he could add roster players: Free Agency. The first player to catch his eye was a young enthusiastic winger who was passed over by everyone in the draft and was willing to play for anyone who wanted him. This player was John Madden. Shawn quickly signed Madden to a deal before anyone else had the chance. The signing marked the completion of one of the best line in the VHLM in season 63, which would be made up of second year Halifax players, Nathan MacKinnon and Nikita Flipachyev, along with Madden. The team got off to a fast start and took hold of the first place spot in the first 30 games of the season. Shawn bolstered the blueline by adding offensive defenseman, Jesse Wilson and shut-down specialist, Evgeni Komarov, as well as two-way forward, Wlodzeimers Zajaczkowski up front. Halifax once again had a good regular season and finished 3rd in league standings, led by Nathan MacKinnon who finished second in league points and first in plus / minus. The 21st played the Saskatoon Wild in the semi-finals and after taking a commanding 3-1 series lead, dropped the series in seven games. Game 7 marked the last time Shawn Glade would GM the 21st, and although he never won a cup with the team, he still proved in only two seasons that he could be a top-class GM. Shawn was given the nod to take over operations of HC Davos and began this week. He says he would have liked to have stayed with the team long term, but the position with the Dynamo that was offered to him was too good to pass on and he decided a career as a VHL GM was too good not to pursue. Shawn, having no AGM to immediately step into his role, left Ottawa Lynx AGM, McWolf to take control of the team. Shawn has expressed his confidence that McWolf will be able to fulfil the expectations others have laid out for the team, in year three of its existence.

    Semi-Finals 2, GM 7: Halifax 21st vs. Saskatoon Wild

    Yeah I'm on Halifax. GM said he was updating lines. Moving Wlod up. The lines still have him listed on line two. I'm sure it wouldn't have made a huge difference but it could have considering Wlod had a four goal performance in one game and like 7 goals in the series and taking in to account how close the score was.

    We needed Wlod on the first line to carry us to another comeback from 7-1 with another 4 goal game. Didn't have the boys to play with.

    VHLM Player Hockey Cards

    Put together cards for a few players and so I thought, why not use them as my graphic TPE as well? Harris and Donald are teammates, and Wahl and Dahlberg are big stars now. Loving it.

    John Madden's Press Conference

    @Banackock 1. As you can see Bana, both are very good fighters. Neither require a weapon to beat each other up. Trudeau beat a big boy up in the boxing ring a few years back. Trump is also very skilled with a fist as he once destroyed fellow billionaire, Vince McMahon. Just watch and be amazed and the American president himself, shows off his knuckles of iron. Overall Bana, I think Trump would have a big edge as he is the bigger of the two boys and he doesn't wear gloves so his punches will be much more devastating. Twas a very good question you asked and I hope this gives you a better idea of why you should never mess with em. 2. Cigarettes. They smell like tobacco before lit which isn't a bad smell. 3. Favourite to watch hockey and I like the Anaheim Ducks. I don't play hockey as much as soccer though and if I had to pick a favourite soccer team, it would be my province local team, the Vancouver Whitecaps. 4. If these are the women you like, then our tastes are very different. I probably wouldn't fuck any of em. But if I was trying to pick the best order, Margot Robbie is kinda hot so I'd fuck her, then I would marry Blake Lively and kill Beyoncé. 5. Self tying shoes because tying my shoes is when I'm at my lowest in life.
