    Jeff Gow Career Recap [1/2]

  7. So to start, I'd like to thank you for writing a thoughtful, well-written list of ideas. Bringing up, discussing, and being open to change is always a good thing. With that said, I am now going to disagree with basically every single idea that you just proposed. Section 1 - Roster Limits VHL - The salary cap and brackets are in place to place an artificial soft limit on roster sizes. Riga's large roster (and I don't believe there are any others currently in the VHL, but I have not actually checked) are the extreme exception and not the norm. I cannot remember a team, competitive or re-building, that had as many skaters as they currently do. If rosters start getting to large, then there is a problem with the salary cap and/or brackets. No to any sort of soft cap or salary cap extension. At the end of the day, the VHL is a sim league and not our jobs, and some simplicity is needed in the structure of the league. VHLM - The waiver cap should always be able to be adjusted based on recruitment. It was only put in place to make sure that team's don't become too strong just due to new players, specifically trade deadline re-creates. Inactive GMs (and I don't mean your 24 hour rule) should be removed. Regarding 24 hours...people are going to be off this site for over a day from time to time. Again, VHL is a sim league hobby, not a job. Section 2 - TPE Limits VHLM Cap to 300 - No, no no no no no. I am one of the biggest proponents of the VHLM there is. Hell, there was a serious argument at one point to completely remove the VHLM, which needed protection at that time. With that said, the goal of the VHLM is to develop and retain members for the VHL. The VHLM is and always should be the secondary league. With only 8 seasons in your career, you really shouldn't want to spend extra time in the minors, because at the end...the results don't exactly matter. Yes, it's fun when you're there, but at the end of a player's career, no one really cares how many Founder's Cups. Don't know enough about World Juniors to comment. VHL call ups - again, VHL is the primary league. If a member does not want to play in the VHLM or if their VHL team needs them, then they should not be forced to play in the minors. Section 3 - Expansion/Regression I disagree that hard rules are needed here. This is something that comes down to the BoG and respective Blue/Green teams, and I don't believe team numbers should be changing too often. Section 4 - AGMs/Head Coaches I don't see the point in this. AGMs can still learn from GMs. Anyone can send in lines the GM can't. It happens all the time. If VHLM GMs want to give some of their pay to their AGM since there's more daily activity in the VHLM than the VHL, sure, whatever. In my mind, the AGM is there to learn GMing and the VHLM rules, and to also be able to send offers to players in the event the GM can't. This role is not needed in the VHL. Section 5 - Expansion Draft All I have is that I think your protections are about 1 skater too short on all of them. Other than that, whatever we did before worked pretty well I think. Section 6 - Player Career No to extended careers. One of the positives (in my opinion) of the VHL is the high turnover in players. This doesn't allow a single player or a single member to dominate the league for an extended period of time and keeps the leagues/rosters fresh. Player careers are already a little over a year long if you go the full 8 seasons. Changing the sim speed drastically changes how much TPE is earned in a season, and changes what the VHL is balanced around. You're also putting even more stress on an already stressful job. And damn...I want to claim this as a media spot too.

    Late Night With Lawson

    1.) What's the single biggest change you've seen the VHL go through since you first joined? 2.) Are you still upset Ottawa change to the Lynx from the Ice Dogs?

    Smitty Werbenjagermanjensen Press Conference

    I would like him to be so...but I said the same thing for Shayne and Jeff. Neither of them were bad players, but none of them could hold a candle to Robin. I think where I am in work and life though, he actually could be. More motivation to make a good player, back on a defensemen, which I enjoy more than forwards and 100x more than goalie, and the VHL itself has picked up a lot of steam recently. Would be interesting, but I wonder what the overall effectiveness would be once you get to higher TPE levels. Have to make sure he's small too, since obviously small defensemen can't play defense and can only play offense.

    What keeps you around?

    As far as what keeps me here: I like winning Continental Cups Community is pretty decent I still don't have a player in the HoF, but that may be a pipe dream.

    Free Position Change in VHLM

    I'm pretty sure VHLM goalie bots have been at 50 TPE for a while now actually for this very reason - to give a team somewhat of a chance if they don't have a goalie on their roster. Previously, it was just the standard no TPE goalie, and teams would get absolutely shredded. I feel like we made the VHL back up 250 TPE for the same reason. RE: goalies...this might be a temporary problem anyway if VHL expansion is something that's looked at.
