// TO CLAIM FOR WEEK ENDING 11/21/

 

1. The World Cup is about to begin! Who do you think will win it all?

 

2. Were you called up to the world cup? If so how are you feeling? If not, do you want to eventually be called up in your career?

 

3. Calgary has made some big trades this off-season, what are your thoughts on the 2 trades that have happened so far?

 

4. Calgary has upgraded the back end, do you believe this is what was needed to help push the Wranglers closer to a cup win?

 

5.  What are your early predictions on where Calgary will finish? Why do you think your prediction will be correct?

 

6. If you didn’t have to work to make money, how would you spend your time? What would you do, or create?

1. I'd probably say Canada. They're very strong.

2. I was in the World Jrs and landed Silver.

3. I think they'll definitely help us compete next season. Should be a fun one.

4. I think it will. Defense helps a ton in the VHL, that's for sure. Goaltending and defense wins championships.

5. Top 5 overall. Top 3 NA.

6. Travel the world for sure. Meet people, spend more time with family, visit amazing beach destinations. Snowboard at every mountain I can.

1. Training camp has started...what will you be working on?

 

2. The world cup just finished, did your team you got called up for (or if you didn't get called up your prediction) finish where  you expected them to finish?

 

3. The draft was held a few days ago, what do you think of Calgary's selections?

 

4. If you followed the draft, what are your thoughts on the top 2 highest TPE prospects going late in the draft?

 

5. If you didn’t know your age, how old would you think you’d be?

 

6. How does your player measure success?

 

1. to walk through walls like Phil the Rock Johnson @Phil , and face offs

2. both teams did better than I thought tbh with Europe getting Silver and Western Europe losing the game for Bronze

3. Bad choice with the two Jansers, they are trouble ;) I think you did great and acquired players on position where there will vacancies in a season or two.

4. I was a little surprised tbh (but I am a rookie, so what do I know). I think with Spartan it could be that GM's thought he is wearing too many hats and is not as invested in the player as people who are players only (but I might be wrong and this is by no means a slight to Spartan)

5. I am 13 with 31 years of experience...

6. Every fight for the puck won is a success and if you at the end of the season have more such fights won, than lost, that is a successful season (at least on personal level). And if the whole team wins the majority of these battles, we are on the right track.

6. How does your player measure success?

1. Conditioning, this old body is getting slower with age so I need to make sure im in 10x better shape then everyone else just to keep up!

 

2. yes they did! Canada won gold baby!

 

3. I was very happy with Calgarys selections! Ricer always does a good job! So far at camp meeting the new players they seem hungry and eager to learn from us! Makes me happy knowing Calgary will be in safe hands after I’m gone!

 

4. I did not follow the draft! But I can only assume it’s because they will be moving up very soon so they aren’t of much value to any team drafting them. 
 

5. 21

 

6. Victory! Team victories, on the ice off the ice, the connections you make along the way! Life long friendships, as well as lessons you learn that make you a better parent, spouse, friend and overall better person!

1. Training camp has started...what will you be working on?

Fitness and endurance is the number one. I need to get ready for the regular season. I tried to keep active during the break, but it's always different to get back on the ice and back to playing at full intensity.

 

2. The world cup just finished, did your team you got called up for (or if you didn't get called up your prediction) finish where  you expected them to finish?

I was hoping we would win the whole thing, so in that sense the tournament did not go as well as hoped. I think next time around we need to be a lot better as a team.

 

3. The draft was held a few days ago, what do you think of Calgary's selections?

Good picks. I think Janser brothers will have natural chemistry that will help the team. Great jr and Hagstrom are also talented young players, who have all the potential to be VHL players in the future. Solid draft for CGY.

 

4. If you followed the draft, what are your thoughts on the top 2 highest TPE prospects going late in the draft?

I did not follow, but that is the way it goes. I assume teams had talks with the players before the draft and they did not like what they heard. 

 

5. If you didn’t know your age, how old would you think you’d be?

I don't know. Pretty young, I guess. I workout.

 

6. How does your player measure success?

Championship, points, money.

6. How does your player measure success?

 

1. Been working on my puck handling skills as of late. I want to be able to stick handle among the elite in the top league.

2. I played for Europe in the World Jrs and we lost in the finals. Silver is a good finish. Obviously not Gold, but Silver is nothing to be ashamed of.

3. Calgary drafted me, so I trust our GM's drafting skills.

4. It's not always about the TPE.

5. Early 20s, maybe. I'm 30 and I still do all the same things I did 10 years ago.

6. A great team culture and championships along the way.

for some strange reason(maybe age?) all my skills have gone downhill this season. So I’ve been working a little bit on everything to try to get back to where I was last season.

 

2. The world cup just finished, did your team you got called up for (or if you didn't get called up your prediction) finish where  you expected them to finish?

 

Western Europe did an admiral job. Needs came in strong but we defeated them in the knockout round so pretty decent. 
 

3. The draft was held a few days ago, what do you think of Calgary's selections?

 

I didn’t follow the draft class super closely, but I think we did a pretty decent job with our selections. Time will always tell
 

4. If you followed the draft, what are your thoughts on the top 2 highest TPE prospects going late in the draft?

 

I did not follow the draft. Who’s the top two prospects??
 

5. If you didn’t know your age, how old would you think you’d be?

 

weird question - probably exactly around the same age I actually am. I kind of act my age


6. How does your player measure success?

 

-Do i suck still

-Do I hit over 350 players in a season

- Do I get over a point per game

-Did we get close to winning the cup

Becoming better friends with my teammates as I want to grow chemistry with them

 

 

 

2. The world cup just finished, did your team you got called up for (or if you didn't get called up your prediction) finish where you expected them to finish?

 

 I have no idea tbh, I don't really know who's playing and what not.  Although I do cherry for team Sweden

 

3. The draft was held a few days ago, what do you think of Calgary's selections?

 

 Good picks definitely, can't wait until they get into the Grove and start scoring some

 

4. If you followed the draft, what are your thoughts on the top 2 highest TPE prospects going late in the draft?

 

 I did not watch the draft but the 2 highest going late isn't something I've heard of, surely a reason to that too

 

5. If you didn’t know your age, how old would you think you’d be?

 

 Probably 1-2 years older than I usually am 

 

6. How does your player measure success?

 

By giving the team success, it does not matter how good you are individually if your team can't win games

1. My impending arrival next season let all the others fear for their roster space and that is their way to tell the coach/GM 'Don't sack me. See, I am productive/valuable to the team, pick an other one.'

2. Nasherov, Johnson and Eagles

3. 6g, 3a in ten games for a two way forward is ok in my book, however the team cannot win games, so I will have to do better.

4. I sucked and probably will again (I did not pick enough Wranglers apparently)

5. I could tell but then I would have to kill you.

6. We can do a lot to eliminate some RNJesus, and I do believe that everything you did will come back at you for better or worse.

1. Everyone has boughten in! Ricer has a goal and a plan on how it will all work! Perry and other vets lead that plan in the room and on the ice! The young stars are impressing early!

 

2. Johnson, Perry, Nasherov

 

3. It has been okay, but after a career year last season, and with all the talent around him now perry is okay with being the reliable offensive presence but not necessarily main guy if that’s what it takes to win! 
 

4. finished with 5 points I think 3rd or 4th place! I think my team is very solid this year and I expect to do very well!

 

5. I see what you’re doing, nice try! It’s a secret! But let me tell you my secret Santa is getting a very good gift. 
 

6. Don’t mistake coincidence for fate!!!!!

1. Calgary is off to a hot start! What do you think are the main reasons for this?

All the players are executing the game plan. We are making less mistakes than the opposite team, and we are using our chances more often than not.

 

2. Who will finish in the top 3 for points on the Wranglers this season?

Johnson, he is a cannonball, always at the dirty areas. Fizzlebeef Jr, he is a elite offensive defender with a hell of a shot. Third one is a tough one, we got a lot of scorers in the team. I'll say Tallinder, because he is a center. He will have a strong season.

 

3. How are you feeling about your player's start to the season? 

It has been alright. I have not taken too many pims and I also have fair number points. I wish I had few more goals, but they will come - maybe.

 

4. How did you do in last seasons VHFL? Do you think you will do better this season?

I was second, I think. I did well. I'm not sure if the same happens this time around. I was happy about my team though, but no idea how well it does against the others in my group.

 

5.  The Wranglers secret santa is a few weeks away, list who you got and what did you get them?

I'm not saying I forgot, but I'm also not saying that I remembered that such a thing is coming.  I need to get on it, asap.

 

6. Is there such a thing as fate or destiny, or do we make our own future?

I believe both are true. I believe the universe sends us clues and signals. If you are a good person and live your life with an open mind - you might see and sense those clues and signals. Some people are destined to miss them. Someone missing the clues and signals could be a clue or signal itself. What does it all mean. Nobody knows
