  1. Boheem Bismarck is unexpectedly rejoining the Halifax 21st, ready to wreak havoc on all the teams that passed on him. Bismarck came into the S67 VHLM draft, having been told by many scouts that he was likely to go in the 10-20 range, however he fell all the way to Halifax, his old team, at 31. There is a lack of logical reasoning for this sudden drop in the stock of this young Bolivian defenseman, and one can only theorize as to why he fell so far. The most believable theory is that the defensive market is over-saturated this season, and there was a lack of demand for such a player in the first 2-3 rounds. In fact, there is evidence behind this, as other highly touted defensive prospects fell a long way in the draft as well. Pierre Persson and Hugh Chan are both high-end blueliners who were projected to go in the first round, but neither were picked up until the late second round, while lesser known forwards such as Bud Knight and Zeno Miniti were taken way higher than expected. Another rumour about why Bismarck fell is that VHLM GMs noticed his poor play near the end of last season, as he seemed to get worse in the last 20 games, and decided to steer clear of him, in case he continued to get worse. However, this theory is hard to believe, as Bismarck have a good showing in the post-season with limited ice-time. The most popular theory seems to be the rumour that Bismarck is a cocaine adict and drug runner, and many teams would have wanted no part of that. However, this theory seems unlikely as there is no way Bismarck would have been able to stay in the VHLM for the entirety of last season if he was out doing drugs all the time. Whatever it was, Bismarck seems to have extra energy to prove the opponents wrong now, and it is likely that Halifax got a huge steal with their third round draft pick. Halifax manager Aran Thranduil stated to VSN's Aston Martin that Halifax feels lucky to have reacquired Bismarck and can't wait to see what he will bring to the ice this season. The feelings seem to be mutual. In a recent interview, Bismarck expressed his excitement to be back on Halifax, and admitted that he was a bit surprised as well, though it was a nice surprise, rather than a bad one. That doesn't mean Bismarck won't be out to teach his over-lookers a lesson this season. He plans to lay as many hits as he can this season, and to block every shot that comes his way. He has also been working on his shot, and wants to score at least 20 goals, to make his opponents pay. Already, Bismarck has been spotted at the gym, pumping iron, and reportedly now weighs in at 230 pounds of muscle. So to all the teams that passed on Bismarck in this season's draft, you've been warned.

  5. Boheem Bismarck | #69 D | 6' 5" | 230 lb. | Age: 25 | Halifax 21st SUMMARY Boheem Bismarck Born: June 9, 1993 Birthplace: Potosi, Bolivia Shoots: Right Draft: Undrafted STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES Strengths 1. Defense Defense has always been the area that Boheem Bismarck prides himself in the most. He can always be relied on to make a safe play in his own end or steal the puck away from an incoming opponent. He rarely coughs up the puck and will make amazing efforts to come back on defense, during an odd man rush. Never known to be the most heroic type, Bismarck rarely tires of playing defense. He is fine standing in his own zone whenever he is on the ice, game after game, and blocking shots. Bismarck believes that the reason defense is a position, is so that someone will spend time helping out their goalie, so that is what he does. 2. Puck Handling Not only is Bismarck good at taking the puck away from people, he also has a knack for keeping it away from them. Year after year, he has one of the best takeaway to giveaway ratios in the league, often having 3 times as many takeaways. Admittedly, part of the credit for this goes to his defensive ability, but he wouldn't have the same result if it were not for his puck handling. The way Bismarck is able to keep the puck in his own end, for minutes at a time, often leaves opposing coaches scratching their heads. Often, Bismarck is able to kill off a whole penalty on his own, not because he can out skate the other team, but because he can out stick-handle them, while using his big body to keep them away as well. Bismarck's defense, combined with his puck control makes him a deadly penalty killer and a decent powerplay quarterback as well. 3. Checking Bismarck is one of the better hitters on his team. Throughout his minor career, he has averaged over 3 hits per game. At 6'5, Bismarck is quite a big guy so getting nailed into the boards by him can be devastating for the opponent. Bismarck is also extremely good at the stick-checking aspect of his game. He has no trouble stripping the attacker of the puck, almost every time they enter his zone. Being hard-hitting and good with his stick makes Bismarck one of the top checkers in the VHLM and most opponents choose to steer well clear of him when they are on the ice with him. His physicality is a deadly combo with his puck handling and defensive ability, making him one of the toughest players to play against. Bismarck is a big, physical, intimidating presence and his style of play lets him perform even better in the playoffs. On Bismarcks highlight reel, you can see multiple occurrences of giving the body to the make a play as well as to protect his fellow teammates. 4. Skating Bismarck is a great skating, going from end to end with ease. Coupled with his puck handling ability he is a great two way defenseman that can beat most players with ease. He is deadly on the breakout, being able to take the lane. His speed along with his size and weight, make him an unstoppable wrecking ball down the ice. Skating coupled with his ability to throw his body around, makes for some unbelievable hits on the ice. Weaknesses 1. Discipline Bismarck has a bad temper, which he quite often lets get the better of him, resulting in boatloads of penalty minutes. So far this season, he has received 54 PIM in only 33 games with Halifax. Some say Bismarck needs to get better at controlling his emotions, while others think that it is the emotions that fuel him to play such a tight-checking game year round, without ever getting tired. One thing that is clear is that his lack of discipline has costed his team more than once this season 2. Passing Bismarck likes to take the glory when it comes to how he gets his points. He’s more of a scorer than a passer and likes to go from end to end on most of his plays. He seems to shoot the puck at the net from the blueline instead of passing it up to the forwards to crash the net. Even though he has a deadly shot on the PP there has been some concerns about his needing to spread the wealth. 3.) Penalty Shots Bismarck does not see himself as much of a penalty shooter, he would rather take care of the game during regulation. He’s more of a distance shooter than playing some one on one with the goalie. 4.) Faceoffs As a defenseman Bismarck does not take any faceoffs, this is something that is very foreign to him and rightfully so.

  6. The members of the Halifax 21st took place in a charity boxing tournament throughout last week, sponsored by Haterade. The finals featured featured early favourite Kenji Hachimura and Bolivian drug dealer / defenseman Boheem Bismarck. These two giant men had both been annihilating their competition, all throughout the tournament, both looking equally strong doing it. In the semi-finals, Bismarck drilled Papa Gage with his left hook, knocking him out cold. This was a shocker to much of the team, as Gage is no slouch in the sport of boxing either, standing 6'3 and weighing in at 225 lbs, he's one of the heaviest hitters on the team, and has been top 3 in team PIM in both of these past 2 seasons. The much anticipated matchup between Hachimura and Bismarck was advertised all through the city. Posters were plastered on walls, and TV ads played non-stop. Every hockey fan in town came out to watch the fight between the two giants. As they stepped into the ring, it was clear Bismarck had the advantage in the size category, standing a full inch taller, and 20 pounds heavier than Hachimura, however Hachimura was considered the easy favourite as he was better know by the team and all of them knew how he could throw punches. The two men stared at each other, the bell went off, and the fight began. The television commentary was as follows: Hachimura with a right and another right and another right and another right! Hachimura with a right! Another right! Another right! Hachimura with a another right and another right and another right and another right! Hachimura was a right! Hachimura with a right! Hachimura with a right! Two, three, four more to ten! Ohhhhh Bismarck's getting pounded! Hachimura with another right, TAKES BISMARCK DOWN!
  7. Yesterday, Boheem Bismarck went on a quest to buy skim milk. He is a milk fanatic, but never likes to drink it before the game, because it doesn't mix well with the meth while he plays. On Tuesday, teammate Thorvald Gunnarsson recommended skim milk because it doesn't have the concentration of fat. Boheem decided he would go out looking for some skim milk the next day. He made sure to get to bed early that night, and after watching the last segment of a trashy remake of The Princess Bride, he took some insomnia pills with his evening meth and went to sleep. That night, Boheem had lots of nightmares and wacky visions. He dreamed of throwing up all over the team bus and having to clean it up in front of Guillaume Fontenette, a Frenchman off of Mexico City who Boheem considers his biggest rival for no apparent reason. In the dream, Fontenette laughed at him and filmed Boheem's distress while he cried all over the floor, making an even bigger mess. After this nightmare had subsided, Boheem had another, this time about losing his monthly paycheck from Halifax management and not being able to find it, only to notice empty meth packets piled into the garbage, which made Boheem come to the realization that he had blown all his money on meth and was so high the night before, he didn't even remember doing it. All through the night he thrashed side to side, hopping from one dream to the next, but never once waking up, until his alarm clock went off at 3 AM. Boheem shot out of bed like a cannon, still profusely sweating from the action of his dreams. Once he had realized nothing was wrong, he sat down in an armchair and rocked back and forth. Being from Bolivia, Boheem is a very spiritual guy. He believes in omens and other stuff of that sort. He thought that perhaps the bad dreams were an omen, a warning, attempting to tell him not to buy the skim milk. He chose to ignore whatever warning he had been given and set out, his rake over his shoulder. Boheem walked to the pharmacy, picked up the skim milk and went back to the hotel, but suddenly realized all of his teammates were either gone or still asleep. Boheem, never having been the most reasonable, assumed that they had all been kidnapped by Guillaume Fontenette and his cronies. So, without checking their beds first, he began walking to Mexico City. Boheem is no stranger to walking. He spent 4 years walking from Potosi, Bolvia to Halifax, after initially signing with the team in S62 but not arriving on the scene until S66. He is also no stranger to Mexico City. The metropolis was right in the middle of the route Boheem took to get to Halifax, and he spend 4 months there working in the drug market, so he could save enough money to buy food along the way. Boheem was ready to make a return visit to his old domain. Guillame Fontenette was about to pay for what he had done. PART 2 NEXT WEEK
  8. 1. My favourite team is HC Davos Dynamo. I hope to get drafted by a rebuilder that can use me right away. 2. Is meth allowed on your team? 3. Blue and yellow with an old fashioned boat as the logo. 4. We gotta all be active if we wanna win this year. We have to catch the top teams in TPE. 5. Meth. 6. Basaraba Moose. A good friend of mine from real life.
  9. HALIFAX - Halifax 21st management recently completed a trade for Las Vegas winger Emil Passerelli. Passerelli is an experienced forward, in his 2nd VHLM season, and has been having a breakout year for Las Vegas, after being traded out of Saskatoon early on. He has a reputation for not being afraid to speak his mind and has been wrapped up in plenty of controversy recently. Las Vegas, knowing they weren't competing, sent their star forward off to Halifax, where upon arrival, he immediately took a brotherly liking to rookie defenseman Boheem Bismarck. Though there are a few similarities, the two are quite different, and you would never expect them to be friends. Bismarck is a meth-head from Potosi, Bolivia, and is generally quite quiet, while Passerelli is one of the biggest personalities in the league, but hasn't been known to do anything illegal. Passerelli is a lot more experienced, and not even close to the same type of player as Bismarck. This friendship is just one of the many surprises in Halifax this season. The next one will surely be Halifax winning the Founder's Cup.
  10. 1. Seems we have good battles with Saskatoon often. But honestly any of the competing teams are our rivals. 2. I think it will always be close. 3. Just to improve here and there. Obviously year one, I'm not going to be looking to score 70 points or anything. Besides I'm more defensive. 4. I think it is good. Lines seem to jell well. Everyone seems friendly with eachother on the site. 5. I am mostly leaning towards checking, defense and maybe puck handling or something like that. 6. The league parity.
