I finally feel like my teams are starting to settle in - had a chance to look around at the GHL and I’m loving it! Not seeing a stacked, all 90+ team is amazing. To have above an 85 average for your team is good...wow! Combine that with no free agent replenishment during the season and it makes me super stoked! I did get a little sad for two reasons today:

1: My arch nemesis is leading his Conference in the GHL (not you Anders)...and he’s not like a super villain...just always stole my free agents out from under me and defeated me several times...

2: I had forgotten there was now a CHL...and I have a whole, other league to fight through to get back on top - ha!

I have yet to even look up at the GHL in this world.

 

That said the team I have is surprising me in its results.

I've hit quite a few up and down moments with my team. I was once first in the East in the SHL, but after losing the last 7 of 9 games, I'm hanging onto a playoff position.
I'm not entirely sure why the team is failing so badly, I was hoping to reach the GHL for the first time ever, but maybe not.
I may have made a mistake by trading my 1st and 3rd draft picks away if the result of the players I received is so inconsistent, but that's the risk we take I guess.

My Prince Rupert Regals are on their 21st straight win, looks like a promotion to the CHL this year! (knock on wood)

My team has been extremely inconsistent of late. I just lost to a 4-1-0-22 team after crushing it for about 15 games straight. A lot of the matches I’m losing, I’m also dominating the stat lines...really hard to feel as if your team should be winning but somehow keeps losing. In the last two matches my goalies both looked like they had each tanked a fifth before getting in net...

Look into how and why your team lost. Were the games close? Was the opposing team better than yours at something? Tactics? Did your goalie or team just have a bad game?

10 games till the playoffs, Eastern conference teams that are currently on the playoff spots are fairly balanced. Every round the table changes and only 10ish points from 1st till 8th spot. I think playoffs are going to be very close, there is no a single team that I can say I want to meet in the first round.

 

Western top teams got away from the others, while there is some close race for last few playoff spots.

 

So, what is your goal, for the first season? :)

I now have 5 Forwards out (4 on the IR) heading into the playoffs. Man, what a terrible time to have half my forwards go down...

I had same problem with my two top-4 defenders. Luckily Coronado is now back in the line.

I think I misread the days and games played - looks like we will be in better shape heading into the playoffs with a few extra days ahead - whew!

And I’m super pumped for the new playoff format!

We can easily end playing each other in 1st round. But all 8 teams are really close, will be quite even eastern conference first round :)

Two wins into the first round but they have been costly! In the first round I lost my 1st line Sniper, the second game, I lost my top scoring Playmaker for 9 days. Even if we make it through this round, the injuries don’t look good to start...

Yea baby

Still think we should be in the east Final.  That finishing 1st is a good advantage.

I just gotta say, I'm fn ecstatic right now. It's taken me 8 or 9 seasons, but I've finally taken my Golden Flyers from the LIHL to the GHL.
Here's to hoping I stay there
