    Let’s get our goalers some love, shall we? We’ll move along to the Greg Clegane Trophy, awarded annually to the goaltender with the lowest goals allowed average in the VHL! This does, however, go to a starting goaltender, but I’ll take the time to acknowledge Nils Friedriksen @Biggreen10 of the London United, who put up the statistically lowest GAA in the VHL with 2.43 in 17 games. Fittingly, it’s the goaltender he backed up, Jacob Tonn @MexicanCow123, who brings home the Greg Clegane Trophy for the second season in a row! Amongst starting goalers, his 2.82 GAA was the best in the league, with Doug Dimmadome @Esso2264 of the Los Angeles Stars just missing out with a 2.89! It’s a great feeling tonight for Tonn, as he shows that his great play is of his own merit, not just the team he’s playing for. Big accomplishment for his legacy with back-to-back Cleganes!
     
    @McWolf, how hyped are you for your tendies?!
     

     
    Congratulations to Jacob Tonn, the Greg Clegane Trophy winner!

    These are my top choices to succeed @Jubo as Helsinki Titans GM. I selected based on member standing as well as connection to Helsinki and which members I think will have the most success and fit seamlessly into a locker room that is ready to compete for a cup. 
     
    @PatrikLaine
    Not a secret but my first choice based on his leadership within the locker room and his activity throughout the league. Easy member to get along with and very welcoming to new teammates. Has been a fixture in Helsinki for a while now. Basically all my insights here are first hand and if I was choosing the GM position Patrik Laine would get the job ahead of others.  The recent connection to Helsinki as well as his various roles as Assistant GM, mostly recently AGM to Jubo. I feel like the strong relationship with Jubo will allow Patrik Laine to learn on the job and have a mentor to help guide him along. This transition would probably be the smoothest.  
     
    @rjfryman
    Obviously his contributions around the VHL can't be understated. Updating player pages, work on the portal and running the pre and post draft TPE rankings. More importantly his time GMing the Houston Bulls of the VHLM. From what I have seen in my time in the Titans Discord is that Freeman is very well liked by current and past Titans alike. His player was almost traded to Helsinki in a controversial trade last off-season with Toronto. So I expect if he is named GM he will trade for his player at some point. 
     
    @Acydburn
    His experience being a VHLM GM and Commissioner should speak for themselves. A respected member around the VHL, who should have no issues dealing with other GM's. If he's hired I would be interested to see if he continues being VHLM Commissioner as that will be a lot to take on. 
     
    Honorable Mentions:
    @MattyIce
    @MexicanCow123
    @Rayzor_7 
    @Advantage
    These FOUR @Domg5 edit, have just as many qualifications as any choices above. I would also be happy with any of these members. 
     
     Clearly there are a lot of good candidates. So choose wisely @Beketov @Quik

    MexicanCow123 reacted to 16z in Looking back at the Best Shootouts of the Regular Season   
    This week I decided to look at all 57 shootouts this season and find out which teams had the best duels, after selecting my favorites and creating a list I was left with a lot of nominations so I ended up with a few lists, the best goaltending, the best goal scoring and the longest duels we've had, leaving out the shorter shootouts where there was only a few saves or goals. These are the best of the best, which one do you think is the most entertaining?
     
    the Best Goaltenders
     Jacob Tonn 
    Game 470 | London United vs. Vancouver Wolves 
    Both goaltenders duel but Tonn comes out on top with the shutout in the shootout, gloving down a the final snipe shot by Onde Sandstrom headed top shelf
     
     Jacob Tonn
    Game 550 | London United vs. Prague Phantoms
    Tonn doesn't waiver after giving up the shootout tying goal and stops 4 straight shots using all of his equipment, giving his team plenty of chances to score
     
     Jurgis Kalvelis Blazevicius
    Game 59 | HC Davos Dynamo vs. Warsaw Predators
    Backup goaltender Blazevicius shuts down the Warsaw offense with four huge saves, stopping Taro Tsujimoto with a crowd shocking toe save at the beginning and bearhugging a  slap shot from Aloe Dear
     
    Woody McPine
    Game 84 | Malmo Nighthawks vs. Moscow Menaces
    McPine frustrates the Menace shooters by staying solid and wins the game, not buying into Ryan Schwarz's fake shot attempt
     
    Woody McPine
    Game 477 | Malmo Nighthawks vs. Moscow Menace
    After round one blunder, McPine takes advice and get energized by his teammates, stopping the next three shots
     
    Doug Dimmadome 
    Game 132 | New York Americans vs. Los Angeles Stars
    Dimmadome earns his paycheck flying back and forth for the first two shots and sweats it out after the shot rings off the post, gloving it down on the line, after the replay.. SAVE IS GOOD! 
     
     Grekkark Gyrfalcon 
    Game 156 | Prague Phantoms vs. Toronto Legion
    After a huge save stopping Asher Reinhart, silencing the crowd, bench and deflating the Legion, Gyrfalcon tells Thomas to go right side with his next shot and he scores, Gyrfalcon keeps focused on the next shot and stops a bad attempt from a shaken up Jon Webber for the dub
     
     Vsevolod Askarov 
    Game 179 | D.C. Dragons vs. Calgary Wranglers
    Askarov does the dragons dirty and makes three straight saves against three shootout beasts, Groovy Dood, Alex Letang and Jeffrenomitsu The 3rd with a couple of poke checks and glove hand save on Letang
     
    John Poremba 
    Game 181 | Moscow Menace vs. Los Angeles Stars
    Shining in his back up role with three big time stops, Poremba solidifies the Los Angeles Stars as a shootout threat with shooters, goaltending and back ups ready for the spotlight
     
    Ajay Krishna
    Game 228 | Warsaw Predators vs. D.C. Dragons
    Krishna keeps his team in it by stacking his pads against Groovy Dood's speedy left, right dangle while staying big the rest of the way, taking space and not giving any opportunities against The 3rd or Letang, getting the easy win for his team
     
     Calvin Harvey
    Game 272 | Los Angeles Stars vs. Riga Reign
    Harvey shuts down one of the best shootout teams, proving he can go one on one with the best, stopping dangle god Jeffrey Pines with the pads, hard shot John Merrick's laser went into the glove and the creative Its Gucci tried to slow it down but Harvey shut his five hole just in time to give his team the victory
     
    Artem Tretiak
    Game 567 | Malmo Nighthawks vs. New York Americans 
    Stopping three straight shots toward the top of the net, Tretiak holds the fort for his team with excellent reading and glove work
     
     
    the Best Goal Scorers
    Brendan Telker & Druss Deathwalker
    Game 423 | Moscow Menace vs. Malmo Nighthawks
    Malmo ends the shootout quickly without a commercial break as Telker and Deathwalker end Moscow's chances with a few easy dangles, going five hole both times
     
    Chris Hylands &  Thomas Landry II 
    Game 303 | Prague Phantoms vs. Malmo Nighthawks
    In an electric shootout where we saw five goals, Hylands and Landry II exchange highlight reel goals, first Hylands goes in very slow and gets close to the goalie, dangles the puck left, right really quickly which gets the goalie out of position and toe drags it into the empty net. On the other side we saw Landry II shoot the puck off the goaltenders helmet but miss, hit off his helmet and into the net
    Pekko Viitanen, John Merrick & Its Gucci 
    Game 466 | Los Angeles Stars vs. Chicago Phoenix
    Playing it perfectly against the former champions we see a trio of players leave no errors against a tired goaltender, outwaiting and scoring their first two attempts blocker side, the last one under the glove
     
    John Merrick & Jeffrey Pines
    Game 280 | Los Angeles Stars vs. Vancouver Wolves
    The Stars shine and end the shootout with perfection, leaving no errors with a top of the slot wrister through legs by Pines in the crease and a trickling over right pad goal by Merrick to stun the Wolves
     
    Red Lite
    Game 398 | Prague Phantoms vs. New York Americans
    This shootout had to go to a few round into sudden death after both teams failed to solve the opposition and after a long wait and nervous crowd Red Lite wins the game with a slick move that fakes out the goaltender, leaving the top half of the net wide open
     Alex Letang, Groovy Dood & Jeffrenomitsu The 3rd
    Game 368 | Los Angeles Stars vs. D.C. Dragons
    D.C. flips the script on a comfortable in the shootout Los Angeles, scoring three straight goals for the sure win. With the first shot Groovy Dude lifts the puck up a few feet in the air and bats it past Doug Dimmadome's blocker, scoring one of the best this season, second goal we saw The 3rd easily slapping it home through the five hole and the last shot we see a confident Letang skate in with the puck, snapping it past the glove hand
     
     Wolf Weiss
    Game 337 | Helsinki Titans vs. Vancouver Wolves
    In a shootout where both teams could have left the net empty we see give goals from each team, three for Vancouver and two for Helsinki, they always say save the best for last and Weiss was just that, dangling the puck like a madman through his legs confusing the goaltender, easily opening up the net for a wrister upstairs 
     
    John Merrick, Cole Newhook, Roque Davis & Pekko Viitanen
    Game 444 | Los Angeles Stars vs. Moscow Menace
    Seven total goals were scored in this one and both water bottles got a workout after a good start from the goaltenders but it would be the scorers left to show off their skills in an exciting duel, in the end though it was Viitanen who took his chances with a creative move, failing along the way and losing the puck we saw an awful pokecheck attempt totally missing the puck and Kevin Malone drags it into his own net
     
    the Longest Duels
    Game 491 | HC Davos Dynamo vs. Toronto Legion
    This game went 9 rounds and both teams didn't give up after a nail biting start going back and forth, in the end it was the goaltenders who prevailed but it would be veteran Jaxx Hextall coming out victorious with a save against a defender, Shawty Nananana, giving his team the edge in the next round with a sniper Jon Webber who stops the nightmare with backhand fake, forehand wrister past a stretched out Kunibuni UnGuri's glove
     
    Game 340 | Warsaw Predators vs. Malmo Nighthawks
    In our longest shootout of the season we see a back up goaltender duel it out with a starter, Jacob Carson and Artem Tretiak, who both had 8/11 stops in a 22 shooter shootout but it would be the Predators Carson to stop a shot against an offensive defense Alexei Kamenov and a depth player Gino DiGiannantonio who finally solved Tretiak 
     
    Game 541 | Riga Reign vs. Helsinki Titans
    In this one we saw another outstanding effort from both goaltenders, stopping shots from some of the best shooters the league has to offer, in the end though Ray Sheilds snaps the puck under the armpit of a standing Zamboni Driver
     
    Game 44 | Warsaw Predators vs. Chicago Phoenix
    It was early in the season and both squads were fighting it out for top spot which made for a nail biter of a finish, starting things out we see slick moves from both sides in Round #1 and a few more in Round #4, after that we saw the goaltenders take over and extend the shots all the way to Round #8 when Matty Socks broke the silence with an absoloute rocket from the top of the circle
     
     
    Well that ends my list, hope everybody enjoyed.. See you next season!
