Big win today over the Praire Stars! Phillipe "Big Bill" Haywood is now averaging a .943 save percentage with three shutouts (including today).

And again against my Hawks... Haywood and your defense are insane.

ha!  Yeah, I've been on RL vacation for a few weeks so not very active here, but have been wanting to ask you what is different this season?!?!  Plenty of time to turn it around, trust me!

Welp, the biggest issue I suppose is my starter getting injured for 17 days. And my backup... at this point I can only assume he has misunderstood the term "goaltending" as guiding pucks into his own net.

 

Even still, I feel I'm having a streak of bad luck on top of that. After the injury, riding the backup, the team has gone 2-0-4-9. Wright is a big factor in the team, sure, but there should be enough quality in the team to pull off a (much) better record than that even when he's out.

 

But I still have my mind set on another cup run - will be all the more satisfying after climbing from the bottom of the standings.

The next 8 or so games for me will show if my early success is fleeting or if I've truly turned the team around from last season's mess.  All 8 games are against teams currently in the playoffs and most in the top half of the standings.  Lost a weird one against Leopards last night.  We each had a SHG and he went 1/2 on PP against the #1 PK unit in the league (well, before last night, haha!) by getting three goals in the 3rd to win 4-2.  Didn't help I was short handed the last 3.5 minutes of the game either!

There's been a SHG scored in just about 50% of my games this season.  Think that's the 9th one scored against me in 22 games - and I've probably scored 4 or 5.  Crazy.

Just a courtesy post to say that I'll be on vaca for the next 8 days.  Phone service will be limited.  Will respond to messages, offers when I can.

5 injuries in two days - can’t catch a break - it’s non stop for both teams.

And the final piece of puzzle for the season is here, goalie.

 

Now we have mighty offense and somewhat shaky defence and decent goalie. Tho current one was surprisingly good.

 

Traded away all my picks, I guess I am way to impatient for that :DDD

Big game against Leopards today. Last time it was 7-2 for Pauls side, worst defeat in franchise (tho short it is) history. However, many players changed teams from both sides and this will be whole new game...

 

Dragons have streak of 8-1-0-1, while Leopards are at 7-1-2-0 coming from a 6-1 win against Tomahawks. Also, both team are using different styles... a true test for my new tactics :)

You've got a deep young squad, they will rebound. Could use a better keeper though, if you aim for the top half of the standings.

I held the Fab Five (Breton, McGraw, Arnesen, Viviers, Ranta) to 1 point and a combined -2.  Unfortunately, Hector Hoglund, the 81 Overall, 176 lb. stud scored a goal and 2 assists +3 for the win.  Crazy stuff.

Paul, yeah... first time this season that my energy line did something :DDD

 

Sry, doesn't feel right :D

 

Do I need to tell you that my fellow assitant informed me that Hoglund wasn't happy with his game perfomance and that it dented his confidence? The boy surely set his goals high.

Here, I talked to assistant to clear some things.

IP: Hi mate, lets talk about the game yesterday. And some other reports from last week.
A: Ok.
IP: We won 5-2 yesterday.
A: Yes.
IP: Lets discuss your report.
A: Ok.
IP: Team showed no signs of underestimating our opponent.
A: No, they didn't. They went in the game fierce and furious.
IP: But the team captains failed to prepare the team on our opponent?
A: Well, yes...
IP: How so?
A: I don't know... maybe they didn't prepare... uhm... maybe they didn't motivate players enough.
IP: Lets talk about Hoglund. 3 points for 6 minutes of ice time. Awesome.
A: Yeah, but he wasn't quite happy with his performance. His confidence is dented and he is crying in locker room now.
IP: How so?
A: He had 0 hits and 0 takeaways.
IP: But he scored a goal and had two assists.
A: No hits, no takeaways...
IP: Lets talk about Breton. He didn't have best of game, but you said that his bodychecks really boosted his confidence.
A: Yeah, but he displayed some very weak bodychecks.
IP: Ok?
A: Well, he is a player who gets his cofidence boosted only if he does weak bodychecks.
IP: Oh, ok. I didn't know that. Lets talk about game against Tomahawks, where our goalie got pulled out in first peried after allowing 4 goals from 7 shots. How did he feel after the game?
A: Great, he was very happy with his performance and it took his game to whole another level.
IP: I can see that. I see you mentioned that he didn't fit his role good? (Role 30)
A: Ah, yes. Well, he is a goalie, but naturally he is soccer goalie and being on the ice really makes it hard for him.
IP: Berthellete had a fine game. You mention that he protected the puck really well in the offensive zone.
A: Yeah, he was awesome.
IP: He also had great checking game.
A: Yes, thats what he does. I gave him 80 for his physical performance.
IP: But your report states that he failed in physical play getting past the opponent with the puck.
A: Yeah, he can't handle the puck.
IP: But he protected the puck really well?
A: Yeah, when he got the puck he protected him along the boards great, but if he skates with it then he failed.
IP: Ok. One more thing comes to mind.
A: Yes?
IP: You said that Arnesen wasn't affected by fatigue during the game at all.
A: Nope, he is incredible.
IP: But you said that he had problems with endurance and failed in recovery. Recovery of what?
A: I don't know.
IP: How he wasn't affected by fatigue if he had problems with endurance?
A: Uhm, maybe he was saving himself for last period and then, I don't know, game finished and he realised that he isn't fatigued at all.
IP: Ok. Cya tomorrow.
A: Bye.
