    1. I think we needed some change and a few moves were a good idea. Sad to see Steele go he was one of my first teammate's in the VHLM.
    2. I'm going to think positive and say VERY HIGH!
    3. I don't know yet might have to talk to the teammate's to help me decide.
    4. Go's to his practice facility on Mars ūüėŹ
    5. I'm haven't looked into the other roster so I'm going to watch out for every team so I will be extra prepared.
    6. To be honest I don't know what that is.

    2hawk reacted to Beketov in Happy 14th Birthday VHL!   
    Hey VHL @Members!
     
    Anyone who has been around the VHL for awhile will surely know, or at least be vaguely aware, that July 18th, specifically July 18th, 2007, is the VHL's birthday! That means today marks the day that our community turns an incredible 14 years old. As an old fart that has been around since that day I can say that is stuns me every year when this post goes up that we're still going when you consider that leagues back in 2007 rarely made it to 3 years, let alone 14. As always though, we aren't just putting some gifs up and calling it a day, we aren't stupid. We know you clicked on this for the TPE and intend on delivering.
     
    To commemorate the league's 14th birthday, we are giving all members a Triples Week, which adds 12 Uncapped TPE to any 6-TPE Point Task (Welfare/Pension/Affiliate PT are not included but as usual if your pay covers your PT that counts), as well as 2 Uncapped TPE. To claim these perks, which naturally add up to 14 Uncapped TPE, all you need to do is post in this thread and then link to that post in your update; that's it. We aren't even making you come up with a memory or anything this year, just a post.
     

     
    Not only are we giving TPE away this year but we're also giving away some bonus items as well because really, what's a birthday without presents? Anyone who comments on this thread, thus getting the bonus mentioned above, will be entered into a draw that contains three copies of NHL 21 (for your console of choice) and an NHL Jersey of your choice. We'll have a live draw for these prizes sometime after the post closes in a week so stay tuned for that.
     
    So, to summarize quickly, that's a max of 14 uncapped TPE just for commenting and 4 winners will receive some gifts curtesy of the VHL. All you have to do is post in here and you're good to go.


     
    Notes:
    ‚ÄĘ This thread will remain open until 11:59PM PST on Sunday, July 25th.
    ‚ÄĘ Birthday perks may only be claimed on one player per member.
    ‚ÄĘ Birthday perks must be claimed before the S79¬†Trade Deadline.
    ‚ÄĘ If you win a copy of NHL 21 and own it already you may swap it for a game of equal or lesser value.
    ‚ÄĘ No prizes can be exchanged for cash value or any form of digital currency (yes, that includes TPE).

    2hawk reacted to NickSunderbruch in Good Or Bad #4 New York Americans   
    So last time on Good or Bad, I listed London United as Good, and rightfully so as currently they are second place in their conference. But this time I'm going over a team that's already looking good, but I'll still try my best to label them as either GOOD or BAD. 
     
         So today we're looking at the New York Americans, who are currently tied for 3rd place in the North American Conference with 27 wins 22 losses and 4 OT losses for a total of 58 points. This teams record might not look amazing as it's just a bit over a .500 win percentage, but you gotta remember that the NA conference is being absolutely DOMINATED by Seattle and Chicago. So without any further delays, lets take a gander at this team. 
     
    FORWARDS:
    Ryan Schwarz, TPA 765 LW @Enorama
    Red Lite, TPA 750 RW @Tate
    Rhynex Entertainment, TPA 741 C @Rhynex Entertainment
    RJ Thatcher, TPA 455 RW @jhatty8
    Nathan Steele, TPA 375 C @73MPL4R
    Calvin Hobbes, TPA 361 C @2hawk
    Brussels Sprout, TPA 298 C @Liberty_Cabbage
     
    DEFENSE:
    Chicken Wing, TPA 645 @chikn
    Kosmo Kramerev, TPA 683 @Mongoose87
    Tanky, TPA 353 @TXC
    Zeedayno Chara, TPA 512 @Jubis
     
    Goalie:
    Thadius Sales, TPA 746 @thadthrasher
     
    The following Average TPA for these positions are as follows;
    FORWARDS: 535
    DEFENSE: 548
     
         This team has a lot of talent on the top end of the lineup, and the rookies and younger players seem to make up the lower half of the list, dragging the TPA totals down a little bit, however that's not a bad thing at all. This team as a young core coming in and developing, while also maintaining an awesome goalie, and a very solid defensive core. This team is solid, and I think they could surprise us all with a deep playoff run this year. They also have nearly eight million dollars in cap space still. This team was the bottom of the league a few seasons ago, and now it appears that they've shrugged that off and continued pushing forward to a third place position in their conference. 
     
         I see almost no real glaring problems with this team, it's built smart and it's built by a GM who obviously knows what he's doing. So a quick hats off to @Esso2264for putting together this roster as well as they have. I think this team has more than what it takes to do well not only in this season but many more to come, dare I say... Dynasty? I don't think I could label this team as bad, and I think that it's more than fair to give them a GOOD, and potentially even a GREAT. 
    Want to know what else is great about this team? While Seattle and Chicago are expected to win big, this team isn't and still does anyways. I don't see any team in NA beating them, and we'll see how long of a run they can go on this post season, and we'll see what moves they make in the offseason as well. 
     
         Anyways I hear my dad coming home from the bar, I'd better grab my helmet, jockstrap, and mouthguard. Stay warm and stay Icey seacrest out.

    Could have waited until next week, but it's memorial day weekend, I'm traveling to New York tomorrow for work, and then who knows where next week so I might as well dump it now while I'm at my computer. I think it's done, might mess with the text a little more, but I went in a direction and kept rolling with it. Didn't want to do lady liberty, that just get's too close to the Rangers alternate logo. Could have done the Liberty Bell, but I personally like this way more.
