  1. 1. Not really. If it ain't us then I don't necessarily care. 2. You really couldn't go wrong with either pick, but I'd give the edge to Walker so solid choice. 3. I like my sticks to be really bendy, maybe rocking a 75 flex. I don't like them too stiff. 4. I clutched the 8th grade dodgeball tournament. There was one guy left on the other team and he got my last teammate out and was celebrating while I was running to grab a ball. Best moment was when I ran at him he fell over. 5. Earlier this year, unprompted, I took my pants off and used a broom as a mic and sung a song in
  2. 1. Players should give their gms a kiss on the cheek after every win. We need some more love in the sport 2. There was a theme week? I just wrote about what's about to happen during the VHL revamp. The Big Dave is coming. Be ready. 3. It might be fun for there to be a Create-A-Team theme week, where people make a graphic for a new team or write about a team they'd want to see put into the league. I'd love to see the fun stuff people come up with. 4. There may be a lack of roster space on some teams but other teams have plenty of room. There should be a promotion of trading and pari
  3. The Big Dave It was the first season of the VHL, and many teams were eager to etch their name in history right off the bat, to become the first champion of the league, and perhaps even the first dynasty; however, everyone was unaware of an undisturbed god about to make its power known to all. From the shadows, it emerged and took the league by storm. It became the champions of the first season, then the second, then the third, and continued unquestioned until the 10th championship. Maybe the GM was just really good. Maybe they’re just getting lucky in the sim. No. HC Davos was being l
  4. 1. Well there wasn't much expectation for this year, so no matter where we end up, I see it as a victory. Who knows. Maybe we'll still squeak in. If not at least we can go out and play spoiler. 2. Maybe. There's a good few players that we can see moved but you never know with GMs. They can get cold feet. 3. Screw it. Toronto takes it all. 4. Hanging out with friends hopefully. Seeing the boys again this summer will be great. 5. Nah I'm dedicated to the VHL. I would try and get into other sim leagues but hockey is the only sport I kinda understand so I wouldn't do too well in any oth
  5. 1. A win is a win, so I like seeing us beat every team we go up against, although, I'm a big fan of beating the top dog. Big hit on morale for them losing to David. 2. Not really. We got a solid setup right now and are staying competitive at least. Near the end of the season it might be fun to just try out a bunch of different lineups just to test them out. 3. The David joke is one that, although overused, can never die. Run it back. 4. Looking eastward towards either Japan or South Korea. Love their cultures and their arts. Definitely trying to do a study abroad over there. 5. I hate
  6. 1. The sim is weird sometimes and it's being really weird right now. Signs would point to us not being so good but I guess anything is possible. We're riding hot so we just gotta keep on it. 2. I feel that my player is doing pretty well this season. Rocking with 15 points and been in the top ten in the league for blocked shots so I'm pretty content with that. 3. Well I hope so. We got a good few rookies playing really well but it's still a pretty tight race. We'll just have to wait and see 4. Probably just sleep. I can grind out at least a couple days doing that. 5. Probabl
  7. Most players in this league follow the same build, and there's nothing wrong with that. The meta build produces consistent producers and is proven to be successful. The issue, however, is the entertainment value of this. Your first player, sure it's fun. It's always to be introduced to success and provides a good initial experience, seeing your player dominate at least the VHLM. Second player, the fun starts to dissipate. It's just a rinse and repeat sort of deal. You get a little better because you understand the system better, but that's about it. The fun of following the same thing over and
  8. 1. I feel like the team has played pretty well so far. Obviously there wasn't much expectation to compete this year but I think a lot of guys are putting in some good work. 2. I'm aiming for at least 35 points, hopefully all assists. I'd also like to get a minimum of 140 shot blocks. I think those are some reasonable goals for my player. 3. I don't necessarily care for the drama. People are going to do what they want to do. At the end of the day, none of this matters that much so no reason to be that serious about it. 4. Probably put a good chunk of that money in property. It's a safe
  9. This is a certified hood classic
  10. may as well just hire me right now
  11. I mean if you're looking for a guy with no experience and a dogshit sleeping schedule then hell I'm a perfect match
  12. I simply do not know how some goalies can even continue playing knowing that Shawty Nananana scored on them. It's even worse that it has happened five times already. I mean, one of them was a shorthanded goal too! It's amazing that none have decided to retire then and there, right as the red light comes on. Shawty's shot has the accuracy of an alcoholic peeing into a toilet with the lights off and the power of Stephen Hawking throwing a football. When Shawty went to a charity event and was showing the kids how to do a slapshot, their shot was so weak it went backwards. The frictional force of
  13. 1. How do some goalies sleep at night knowing that Shawty Nananana scored on them? 2. I guess it depends on the person and the mood. If you're really flowing with creative juices, it can come pretty easily, but sometimes you just get stuck in a rut. 3. Make Leadership the most important stat in the game. Max Leadership, best player. 4. Place it right smack in Lichtenstein. Gotta get hockey to the best country in the world somehow. 5. My player's arms are like pasta noodles. I think preschoolers would beat them in a fight. 6. I'd like to see what Gustav can do. Either way I'd probably
  14. 1. Sad to see all those guys go but it's what had to be done. I think you got a pretty decent haul for them all. Should be a good start to the rebuild. 2. Well I feel like you probably held out with some deals a little longer. It didn't feel like you were in too much of a rush to move some pieces so you were able to build up the deals a little more. With Malmo it must've happened pretty quickly, with not as much negotiating. 3. I don't necessarily know who should take that spot, but I feel like the right decision will be made. Someone with at least a little bit of a history of succes
  15. Writing this > Focusing on classes
  16. Shawty has had a tough time getting in some much needed rest and relaxation. Although there always seems to be a good amount of time between each season, something always ends up going wrong. Everything is planned out and they’re ready to go then BOOM, it falls through. Season 72 Offseason After coming over from Norway to play a handful of games with the Houston Bulls, Shawty looked to go back to their home country before the draft and spend time with their family at their summer home. Houston is way too hot in the summer anyway, especially by Scandinavian standards. Wi
  17. Shortly after signing a four season deal with HC Davos, Shawty Nananana finds himself on a team heading towards a rebuild after a poor record early in the season. Shawty released a statement to the media "Obviously it is unfortunate that we won't be competing this year, but I asked to be signed to that contract knowing that there were going to be good and bad seasons within its duration. I don't care if this team is at the top of the league or a bottom feeder. I have faith in my GM and believe that they will make the right decisions regarding the team in the end and I cannot wait to be a pa
  18. 1. Yea I'd agree that that's the right call to make. The team has been struggling and it's not likely that we really make anything out of this season. It sucks but it is what it is. 2. I could see Jensen and Jokinen being dealt, maybe even Dawson or possibly even Hornet. A lot of guys who could be on the move, but I doubt we really want to sell off everyone. 3. 2-4 seasons. Depends on how well we draft and also free agent signings 4. I highly value transparency in a gm. It doesn't matter what the state of the team is and what the intents of the gm are, as long as you're open and
  19. I'd give a dollar amount, but I know no matter how much I say, I'm going to end up remembering about this like 5 years after leaving and come back just to see if the sim doesn't hate Davos anymore.
