hedgehog337 3,385 Posted March 9, 2017 Share Posted March 9, 2017 (edited) *What the fuck I'm gon' do now?* The regular season is already over for Riga and I'm starting to think about the future. The next stop for us is an upcoming off-season, which includes the draft. Reminder: Riga has the S54 RIG 1st, QUE and SEA 2nd and some third round picks. It's obvious that I'm putting a lot of hopes on the first round pick as it will bring an established VHL player to our team. I had a nice shortlist of players that I plan to draft and one of them is arguably the best goalie of S54 draft - Markus King. Right now he's the hardest working goalie of all his peers and it's not a surprise I'm looking closely at his way. However, I received some big news from @Kendrick himself - he said he doesn't wants to be drafted by the Riga Reign. More precise version - he already played 16 seasons in the Reign with different players and he isn't interested to spend his 17th and then 18th...and then maybe 24th season with Riga. So there's a big question for everybody involved in this draft - who is going to be drafted by me? There are some situations that can happen during and after the draft. Let's look at them. 1. I don't give a fuck and Markus King goes to Riga for an entertaiment purposes. I'm usually trying to keep it quiet (that's why everybody still overlooks me and drafts my players in the second round), but now I might pull a risk card. Well, I need a goalie, you know. The main question is about his reaction - will he call me a shit GM in public; will he stop updating his player until I'll trade him or he's going to ask me kindly for a trade? Lots of interesting things can happen here. 2. I don't give a fuck and Markus King goes to Riga for my own and Riga good. No entertaiment, just business. By my own and Riga good I mean a potential deal between Riga and some other team. It would be a risky move though - there's no guarantee that I'll find that team to make a deal. Also, it might be too controversial move; it's not like I'm afraid to be shitted on, but it's probably better to not making Riga a drama place...for my own and Riga good. 3. I'll leave Kendrick alone and draft the other player. Also an option, especially if Riga gets something higher than the 4th pick. There are a lot of solid players that can play in VHL right away; this draft is pretty awesome itself with three active first-gen players and more recreates/second players. I think the first 12-13 players definitely can bring something to the table so I hope to find a steal in the second round. As for the first round pick - I see a multiple contenders for the TOP 4 spot: Gretzky, Abbott, Fook Yu, Fedorov, maybe someone else. Even Axelberry, although I don't know if he wants to play in VHL right away. Who will Riga draft? It's a mystery, even for me. Stay tuned. That's it and I'm out. 6 TPE goes to Krīgars.
