Saskatoon GM congratulates Ottawa in press release.


Recommended Posts

SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN -- Saskatoon Wild GM Rylan Peace released a short video today some would call 'blog style' after the Ottawa Lynx completed their sweep of the Minnesota Storm at the conclusion of game four. The Wild GM congratulated the relatively new Lynx GM on a job well done and their first championship in the VHLM. Peace also briefly applauded the Storm's efforts throughout the playoffs, especially defeating a powerful Philadelphia team, but the majority of his press release was addressed to John  Perdue and Anthony Amberback

Amberback played a critical role to Ottawa's post-season success with twenty six points. The strong defender is second in team scoring, landing just under Underyew - who's immensely impressive 34 points likely wins him the playoff MVP award - while achieving the highest points per twenty minutes among any defender in the playoffs. Of course Ottawa's offensive nature made it possible for such a strong performance. 

Perdue, unfortunately, was benched for the entirety of the playoffs as the rules that govern VHLM GMs dictate inactive members are played below active and engaged members and their players. He averaged just over three minutes a game during the regular season, where the left winger managed to pot eleven points in seventy one games before sitting the final regular season game. Perdue was once a reliable scorer for Saskatoon, so his disappearance into inactivity is truly disappointing. 

The Lynx defeated the Aces in the first round in five games, moved on to defeat Halifax in six before sweeping Minnesota in four. 

Minnesota on the other hand swept aside the Bulls in four, and impressively dispatched the Reapers in five before being unfortunately swept under the rug by the Lynx. 

It was a good and surprising playoffs this go around.
