S75 Trivia Week 6 Answers


Recommended Posts

1. This season for the first time all 4 VHL conference finalists are expansion teams, with Moscow playing Malmo and Prague in previous seasons as well. How many times did the original expansion franchises, Cologne and Quebec, meet in the playoffs?

As we approach the conclusion of (or perhaps at the time of posting have concluded) the second ever all-expansion team final, what better time to hark back to the only time Cologne and Quebec met up, back in S42. Both made somewhat underdog runs to the finals, Quebec had been there before and won, while for Cologne it was a first ever finals appearance in their twelfth season. The Express also got their first cup, defeating Quebec and then made the next two finals too - despite being heavy favourites to win NA in S43 and S44, Quebec contrived to miss out on both chances of a rematch with Cologne. Then Cologne only made one more final (S49 against Toronto) and were contracted in S57. Quebec has had plenty of success since, including since they moved to Vancouver but therefore only met Cologne once in their history.

 

If unlike me you didn't know this off the top of your head, then the best place to check was this handy spreadsheet: https://vhlforum.com/topic/52282-an-all-encompassing-playoff-spreadsheet/

 

 

2. TRUE/FALSE: Ottawa is the only city to have had a VHLM franchise throughout the league's entire history.

Shameless plug for my latest addition to the HOF: https://vhlforum.com/topic/97303-franchise-history-visualiser-vhl-vhlm/

As you can see, the VHLM has had a very turbulent history since its founding in S2 and that story - European Conference, Screaming Seamen, etc - doesn't even cover the many commishes, GMs, rules changes, and of course its former affiliate status until S20. Ottawa is indeed the only team that has made it through 74 seasons relatively unscathed, with the exception of a name change about halfway through. Fittingly, it is also the league's most successful franchise.
