1. Thoughts on the new expansion teams - any you like in particular, any you don't think were the best decisions?

2. If given the choice, would you rather join an existing team or Moscow in the draft?

3. What is your favourite VHL memory?

hello new teammate

 

When did your love affair with Gritty start?

why do you love Gritty so much?

Why is your name so long and hard to pronounce?

Are you satisfied with your production so far?

Do you have a favorite teammate?

1) Do you think we should add another VHL expansion team soon?

2) What is your opinion on theme weeks? I personally think it's kind of lame seeing the same topic talked about over and over again, though it is good to get people who don't usually do media spots to do them. 

3) Do you think everyone having an assistant GM is dumb?

4) Do you remember our first trade neogotiation in the VHLM when we were both at mom's and I gave you two 2nd round picks for some inactive whose named started with J for like 160 tpe?

5) Do you ever go on discord?

The Ottawa Lynx of course. We'll have 4 capped (maybe 3 with 1 very close to being capped) defensemen, some good forwards, and a capped goalie. We're up there with the best and will beat Los Vegas.

I couldn't tell you because of my answer to number 3. I'll say Riga because I like them and I know they're good. They have top players and depth.

Not especially. I couldn't tell you much about how the VHL is going this year. When I'm in the VHL, I'll check the VHLM Index from time to time to see what new players/members are putting up points and TPE, but that's about it.

I'm not going to say you because that's too easy. It was @Squinty but he hasn't been here in forever. I don't actually talk to too many people on the site anymore outside of the "yay team" stuff, but @Smarch and @Victor are always cool dudes.

Hm...I don't really have one. There are a couple people who have different personalities and ways of thinking than me, but that doesn't mean they're bad guys. @Devise and @Banackock are always gung hoe about changing things up and I'm always like "no way, the way we've been doing it forever works fine", but I don't dislike either of them. The site needs people like them to put ideas forward and needs people like me to tell them to slow down.

Obviously I'm happy to get a team in Philly, but I just wish the team name made more sense and tied in to the city. I feel like we found logos and tried to make them fit instead of coming up with team names and then finding logos. Obviously the latter takes more time and effort and admittedly it's not something I have interest in doing or would be good at. I know there was talk about putting the Houston team in Dallas or just Texas so I'm glad I brought up Houston and the old Aeros, because Houston makes much more sense than those other locations...even Austin, TX would have been better. Moscow is pretty good if we have to have a European Conference...:p

Both have their positives. On one hand, if I join Moscow, I can become a top player for the team and anchor the defense for a long time. Similar to when I was on Cologne, I can top the franchise leader boards for at least a little bit. On the other hand, who knows how long it takes Moscow to become competitive? How many seasons would I actually have a chance to win a Cup?

I'd like to say "winning the Continental Cup as GM of Riga" but that felt more like a relief than pure joy considering how much we failed beforehand. The happiest I was at a single point in time was when I won my first Founder's Cup as GM of Ottawa in season 30 something. Looking back on it, it obviously doesn't mean that in the grand scheme of things, but I was still a newer member and GM at the time so it felt really cool. 

 

Being trusted to be a commissioner felt good as well, for as short a time it was.

3) Thoughts on Chiarelli being fired.

 

It's a shame Fletcher wasn't able to trade Simmonds there first 😛 Long time coming for a GM that is basically throwing away a good portion of McDavid's career.

4) Thoughts on VSN?

 

It's a pretty cool idea that seems to be a good replacement for the mag. Admittedly, I don't read most of the articles, but from the couple that I have read they appear to be well written and entertaining. I know others really like them though, so that's good for the league.

5) What do you think is the easiest way to get TPE?

 

Welfare + 2 press conference + fan590 + trivia is the "easiest" way to get close to the cap. Can add in a PT and/or reviewing to hit the cap.

I actually hated him at first. I was at work when he first dropped on twitter, and me, my boss, and a co-worker thought he was the dumbest thing ever. He's grown on me insanely though, considering how goofy he is. He's annoying at games though.

The eyes. They move. But outside of actually being at the game, he's pretty funny. He's funny during pre-game and intermission. He's extremely annoying while the game is going on though if he's in your section.

It's not actually that hard to pronounce. You say it exactly how it looks. I'm also starting to wonder what the age cut off is for people who wouldn't recognize this from Spongebob...

So I'm answering this after the fact now, but yes, overall I was satisfied with my production, especially in the playoffs. My point totals tailed off towards the end of the season, but if I look at them in the aggregate, I think they're pretty good, especially when you consider how stacked our defense was.

Gritty!

Depending on what "soon" is. Next season? Meh. After a couple seasons when we see if recruitment and detainment stays up? Then yes.
