#40332 Season 2 General Chat

Posted by Erzac on July 17, 2019 - 04:04 PM

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.

"So, GM Erzac, how do you feel about your team's current performance?"

Cats are having the worst cup hangover, playoff MVP Wright decided to extend his summer vacation by 17 days, and the offense is unable to put together more than two goals per game.

 

Oh well, maybe it's just a page out of St.Louis' playbook on how to handle the regular season.

St. Thomas Stray Cats complete the reverse sweep and take home the inaugural Golden Cup.

 

Congrats, Erzac!

Thanks!

 

Really couldn't have asked for a more exciting series. The slumbering top lines finally woke up for the 5th game to bring it home.

Kegashka is really dominating last 2 rounds.


Just setting the stage for a dramatic reverse sweep...

market might be rough, people desperate to compete with a lot of cap space overspending

And even overspending isn't always enough... wasn't in the old GPHM anyway...

#39723 Cage trash talk

Posted by Erzac on June 06, 2019 - 02:51 AM

It is certainly an enjoyable run - the Union is a strong team that directly counters my playstyle, so while we will fight until the last drop, it is a tough matchup.
That said, my team was built to win in the next 3-4 seasons, all key players are signed long-term, and I am impressed with their play (and balls) this year. The offence has been dominant throughout the entire season. If we fall here, I will still consider it a success.

  

Oohhhhhhhh.  Well this is awkward.  We are also planning to win in the next 3-4 seasons.
Of course we first need to figure out what those balls are that you speak of.


You both can rest easy, for the 'Cats are built to win *for* the next 3-4 seasons.

Congratulations to Erzac on a good series. Every game was very close and decided on one goal.

Cheers. A much more even series than what the wins show. Could've easily been a sweep the other way.

Awesome thread!

I like how Cline is a runner-up in 4 out of 6 possible trophies.

The Cats have clawed back to the 2nd place in the East - down to the last game if we can keep it.

Some feline team will finish 2nd anyway...


#39435 Cage trash talk

Posted by Erzac on May 17, 2019 - 04:16 PM

Erzac - how do you continue to bait my team into penalties.  I remember our GHL/SHL playoff series from Biscuit where I took 50 more PIMs in a 3-game series.  Now in Cage over 4 games the PIMs are 44-20.  Something about the Stray Cats send the Leopards into a rage.

Simply a territorial dispute - Leopards can't handle Stray Cats wandering into their zone.




#38814 An extension to the 20 day trade lock rule

Posted by Erzac on March 18, 2019 - 05:11 AM

If FA players keep appearing they are devalueing players we currently have.


This. Any sort of FA spawning should be kept to minimum, and timed at one certain point (start) of a season.

The most frustrating thing is when you acquire a player in a trade, and then see a better one magically appear in FA a day later.

The West is currently smoking us Eastern teams in inter-league play.


This, of course, is just a mere side-effect of not having the Eastern felines meet any Western teams yet.
