    S64 Draft in Review

    Finn Davison big bust.
  2. With the S65 draft upcoming, the HC Davos Dynamo have 2 first round picks at the Number 2 pick and the Number 6 pick. The UK Goaltender, Finn Davison is excited as his team had a rough year, but a bright future ahead. We had a chance to catch up with Finn Davison where he had this to say: Now, we had a chance to sit down with him to discuss some of the players that are in the draft, people that stood out to him and impressed him, this is what he had to say: Not being part of management, he has no idea what will be next or where the team will go. He is impressed by this draft, without question. Tune into next week!

    S64 Draft in Review

    I decided to do a little bit of a recap of the last draft. We will look at where each of the players are now as well as the amount of TPE in which that player has. Without further waiting, here is the article! Round 1 1. NEW YORK AMERICANS (from Toronto Legion): D - Ryan Sullivan Jr TPE Now: 422 Current Team: New York Americans Last Update: 2/10/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: Right on. I think that the Americans made the right and easy pick with this. He has been a consistent earner, exactly what the Americans were looking for from this pick. When you take the first pick, you want a consistent earner who is definitely reliable. 2. HC DAVOS DYNAMO : LW - Elias Dahlberg TPE Now: 411 Current Team: HC Davos Dynamo Last Update: 2/17/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: Right on. I think, yet again, Dahlberg was the easy pick for this selection. He is staying consistent with Sullivan as well with over 400 TPE. He is looking like a steal and a stud for the Dynamo. This is someone you are going to want to build around. 3. NEW YORK AMERICANS : C - Joel Ylonen TPE Now: 341 Current Team: New York Americans Last Update: 2/17/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: I really like Joel, but he has fell a little behind the guys below in terms of TPE. I think that he is not exactly a bust, but there are other guys that they could have taken. Personally, I like Gebauer and Svoboda, so I would definitely rather have either of those guys. I do like Joel, but I would prefer the other two. 4. CALGARY WRANGLERS (from Helsinki Titans): C - Mark Gebauer TPE Now: 354 Current Team: Calgary Wranglers Last Update: 2/10/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: Right on. Mark is someone that works hard, someone that Calgary will look back and be happy they made this selection. He is over 350 TPE which seems consistent where you want to be in the first round. 5. QUEBEC CITY MEUTE : RW - Pat Svoboda TPE Now: 393 Current Team: HC Davos Dynamo Last Update: 2/17/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: Steal. This guy is an absolute stud to be taken 5th. He could be right up there in the top 3, he definitely is there in terms of TPE. He is someone that updates every week. He is someone to build around. Davos got a gem with this guy, this is someone you will build around. 6. HC DAVOS DYNAMO (from Seattle Bears): RW - John Madden TPE Now: 328 Current Team: Halifax (DAV) Last Update: 2/17/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: Right on. I think you could have gone either of the next two guys. They are two guys that are similar in terms of value. They are about the same TPE, same update, I could see either of these next two picks being the right pick. Davos preferred this guy, I think he's a solid pick. 7. CALGARY WRANGLERS : RW - Diljodh TPE Now: 336 Current Team: Halifax (CGY) Last Update: 2/17/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: Right on. I pretty much listed what I thought above. 8. RIGA REIGN : LW - Kyson Blake TPE Now: 295 Current Team: Ottawa (RIG) Last Update: 2/3/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: BUST. I really think there were better options on the board than Blake. You had Jerwa, Philliefan, Garopp who were still on the board among some others. I think that Riga really made the wrong pick with this guy. Round 2 9. HC DAVOS DYNAMO : D - Piotr Jerwa TPE Now: 327 Current Team: HC Davos Dynamo Last Update: 2/17/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: STEAL. 10. NEW YORK AMERICANS : C - Ryan Zabby TPE Now: 289 Current Team: New York Americans Last Update: 2/3/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: BUST 11. QUEBEC CITY MEUTE (from Helsinki Titans): D - Jagger Philliefan TPE Now: 302 Current Team: Las Vegas Last Update: 2/17/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: STEAL 12. CALGARY WRANGLERS (from Toronto Legion): G - Brick Wahl TPE Now: 424 Current Team: Calgary Wranglers Last Update: 2/17/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: MEGA STEAL. 13. NEW YORK AMERICANS (from Quebec City Meute): D - Eric Parker TPE Now: 214 Current Team: Las Vegas (NYA) Last Update: 2/3/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: BUST 14. SEATTLE BEARS : C - Gucci Garrop TPE Now: 320 Current Team: Seattle Bears Last Update: 2/10/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: STEAL. 15. QUEBEC CITY MEUTE (from Calgary Wranglers): RW - Nathan N TPE Now: 231 Current Team: Las Vegas (QUE) Last Update: 2/10/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: Right on. 16. RIGA REIGN : C - Curtis Gary TPE Now: 215 Current Team: Las Vegas (RIG) Last Update: 2/3/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: BUST Round 3 17. HC DAVOS DYNAMO : G - Finn Davison TPE Now: 357 Current Team: HC Davos Dynamo Last Update: 2/10/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: BUST 18. NEW YORK AMERICANS : RW - Matthew Materazo TPE Now: 226 Current Team: Las Vegas (NYA) Last Update: 2/17/19 Bust/Big Bust/Steal: Right on. 19.

  6. Well, as someone that came into the draft really knowing nothing about where I would go, there was a lot up in the air. Now, with the season over, we can look back and see where I am not and how I did. Let's see how I did in terms of statistics. Record: 6-21-5 SV%: .918 GAA: 3.30 GA: 109 SA: 1,322 When you look at this, Finn was 6th in the entire league in Save Percentage, he is still does not make the Goals Against Average. Now, when you thought about the draft, you always had competition with Brick Wahl of the Calgary Wranglers. Let's compare how Brick did compared to Davison. Record: 22-34-5 SV%: .914 GAA: 2.73 GA: 164 SA: 1,906 Who do you take? These two will always be compared, but it will be always interesting to project these two, but looking back, I am a little bit disappointed in my year. I got shelled, it really is disappointing how bad my year was. It just pushes me to do better and be better. I will keep moving, This is going to be my time. I am moving forward as the HC Davos starting goaltender, this just moves me to be better, to do better. Rookie year is just the tip of the iceberg. Tune in to see the fun that I will be having.
  7. With the VHL Expansion coming up, the Moscow Menace will have the fun task of being about to select a team based off other team's protection lists. Each team will leave a list of players unprotected which they will get to choose from. I am here to project who will be exposed and who will be selected by Moscow. Without further waiting, let's first remind you of the rules, then I will go by team to list who will be protected and who will be not. Calgary Protected: G - Brick Wahl C - Mark Gebaur D - Lando Baxter C - Oleksiy Revchenko RW - Wlodzimierz Zajackowski C - Jasper Canmore D - Cayden Saint Unprotected: LW - Aksel McKnight - 324 TPE D - Johannes Vihjalmsson - 292 TPE LW - Karl von Moltke - 266 TPE Quebec City Protected: G - Tristan Iseult C - Beau Louth D - Colton Rayne RW - Jake Davis C - Rauno Palo LW - Marvin Harding D - Casey Jones Unprotected: RW - Jorgon Weyed - 381 TPE LW - Konstantin Mulligan - 460 TPE D - Samuel Gate - 605 TPE D - Toby Fitzgerald - 200 TPE HC Davos Protected: G - Finn Davison LW - Elias Dahlberg RW - Pat Svoboda LW - Randoms D - Piotr Jerwa D - Alvaro Jokinen D - Jacob Smith Unprotected: D - Bastion Logan Mac Finsceal - 89 TPE C - Elias Sobeck - 196 TPE LW - Jose Gonzalez - 237 TPE RW - Paul DiMirio Jr. - 111 TPE G - Cole Mertz - 200 TPE Helsinki Protected: G - Alexander Pepper D - Jesse Wilson RW - Joey Boucher LW - Julian Borwinn D - Mats Johnsson LW - Vesto Slipher C - Kronos Bailey Unprotected: C - Dan Montgomery - 459 TPE D - Paolo Nano - 345 TPE D - Sidney Crosby - 466 TPE C - The Charm - 657 TPE RW - Vaydar Odinsson - 462 TPE New York Protected: G - Ismond Kingfisher RW - Dan Wilinsky D - Joseph McWolf RW - Roctrion King D - Ryan Sullivan Jr. C - Ryan Zabby C - Joel Ylonen Unprotected: C - Scott Shawinganen - 341 TPE Seattle Protected: G - Roger Sterling LW - Matt Thompson D - Maxim Kovalchuk LW - Veran Dragomir C - Vyacheslav Smirnov D - David Kiaskov D - Robert Malenko Unprotected: C - Gucci Garrop - 289 TPE D - Mountain Thunderfist - 240 TPE C - Otto Axelsson - 419 TPE RW - Sergei Kovalev - 447 TPE Riga Protected: G - Kallis Kriketers RW - Edwin Preencarnacion D - Joseph Bassolino C - Podrick Cast D - Ryan Kastelic RW - Ryan Peace LW - Ryuu Crimson Unprotected: C - Anthony Dabarno - 200 TPE D - Dylan Nguyen - 315 TPE RW - Kisshan Shan - 342 TPE LW - Leph Twinger - 665 TPE C - Mikka Pajari - 440 TPE D - Shawn Glade - 508 TPE Toronto Protected: D - Luc-Pierre Lespineau-Lebrunette LW - Oyorra Arroyo C - Sebastian Ironside LW - Chace Trepanier D - Tzuyu LW - Evan Lawson D - Adam Warlock Unprotected: G - Johnny Havenk Carison - 405 TPE D - Boner - 179 TPE RW - Lavar Ball - 222 TPE D - Lew Bronstein - 279 TPE Now, with all of this said, I am taking a real close look at Helsinki and Riga. Those are going to be the guys that I am going to want on my team. There are even actives there. How I chose who to be protected and not, I went though many criteria. I clicked into every update page of every single player in the league. I prioritized my people like such: Are they active? When is the last time they updated? Do they claim welfare, average TPE claimed per week Draft Season Based off those things, I designed who I would keep protected and unprotected. What do you think, who would you choose off this list?

    The wild world

    In one week, it went from thinking Finn Davison could end up heading out of Davos, to thinking that he is someone that will be staying there for a while. With the surprising retirement of the other goaltender, Rhett Stoffiday, the UK Goaltender found himself as the only active goalie on the Roster, something that was really unheard of which is why he went so late in the draft. Considering that he is only 24 TPE back from Rhett and a season behind him, this looks to be a good thing for HC that they grabbed him when they did at 17th Overall. That is looking like a real steal considering he will likely be protected when the draft protections list comes out. Now, this season has been less than ideal for the 6'3" goaltender. He is 6-21-5 on the season with a 3.30 GAA and a .918 Save Percentage. He also has not shutout anyone but allowed 109 goals on 1,322 shots against. 1,322! That is insane. Now, let's take a look where he stacks up against his fellow goaltenders. Save Percentage: 6th in the league (behind Stopko, Pepper, Brodeur) GAA: Not top 10 It is crazy how the world turns, but this is the fun of hockey. We will see the official list, but it has to be pretty sure that Davison will be staying put in Davos.

    S64 WJC Semi-Finals: World vs Europe

    I got that win baby boy.
  10. With the VHL Expansion looming, there is a question about the future of goaltender Finn Davison. With the Moscow Menace coming into the VHL, there is some uncertainty to his future with HC Davos. When you look at what HC Davos has currently, they are sporting 3 goaltenders which are Cole Mertz, Finn Davison, and Rhett Stoffiday. Rhett is definitely a little bit more developed than Finn Davison as he was drafted 22nd in the Season 63 draft with Finn Davison being picked in the S64 Draft. Looking around the league, it is clear that Moscow will be looking for a goaltender, what are other options that may be on the board if Finn/Rhett are protected? There really are not many other options, but with backup goaltenders not really being needed, it will be interesting to see which 7 players HC Davos will protect. If I had to guess, this is what I would presume: LW Elias Dahlberg RW Pat Svoboda D Piotra Jerwa D Alvaro Jokinen LW Randoms D Jacob Smith G Rhett Stoffiday This would leave Finn Davison exposed. Will the UK Goaltender be finding his time in Moscow with the new team? This will definitely be interesting to find out. Note: I have no confirmation on this at all, this is just me guessing what could be next. I am not reporting anything, again, just taking guesses at what is next.
