I scoped out the competition - lot of good managers down there in the BHL playoff race but I have confidence in my boys...hopefully not too much...

Once more it's down to the last game of the season to decide whether our team has to fight to stay or sits nice and cozy in 12th...Here we go Canucks!

Team is in a nose dive - need to make some adjustments quick before things get out of hand...

#32928 [BUI] Player Fatigue / Team Info

Posted by EXXEO on March 01, 2018 - 10:24 AM

Thanks team! It is odd indeed - I've gone through a lot of scenarios as to what could be draining my players energy and technically nothing makes sense...so I'm going to give up trying to figure it out and let you guys work your magic. I'm going to stick with Kavanaugh has either an iron deficiency or has become diabetic and doesn't know it yet ;)

Assistant's Remarks on my Goalie Neskarov....


- Looked focused and determined on the ice
- Solid checking and almost never had to play dirty to keep up with the opponent
- Wasn't too much affected by fatigue during the game
- Played the game with confidence
- Looked solid and handled pressure well
- Showed no signs of underestimating the opponent

...he's the backup...never touched the ice but I'm sure happy he looked focused and didn't play dirty...but who the heck did he check?!

Yeah, I've never seen that either!

#32880 Shitty Draft Class S26

Posted by EXXEO on February 25, 2018 - 09:37 PM

I think it's all intended. It stems from a reduction in training that occurred in a previous update that reduced player development to make it more realistic from top to bottom. This year's top prospects look a lot different than seasons prior as well as only the top few picks really stand out in the crowd of prospects. I assume that as the slower leagues progress it will be seen on that playing field also. Overall, I'm all for it - just may take some time for everything to plane out.

#32567 S13 Trade Block

Posted by EXXEO on February 05, 2018 - 08:08 PM

I have just updated my Tradeblock. I'm selling a lot of talent to get a more focused roster. If you have any interest in them or even players that are 'unknown' shoot me a PM ;)

#32301 Draft Philosophy

Posted by EXXEO on January 19, 2018 - 01:19 PM

So, I'm going to keep track of the two goalies that I mentioned earlier and we're going to see how they develop and track progress until the draft, giving an update on day 20, 40, and 60. Then we can see exactly who decides to take which player and follow their progress from there. This should be interesting as the higher ranked, Higher rating goalie, Lanza, has statistics that are far less impressive than the 2nd ranked goalie, Vignaux.

Name / SOY OVR (+ Progress) / Games Played / GAA / SP / Shutouts

Lanza / 89 (+0) / 12 / 3.38 / .908 / 1
Vignaux / 84 (+0) / 11 / 1.27 / .952 / 4

#32297 Tactic Familiarity

Posted by EXXEO on January 19, 2018 - 11:36 AM

"As for the focus, I have heard conflicting opinions on this as well, all from successful managers. So I guess it's more a matter of preference. Although I don't know if this information was ever available as part of the "Hints" section that was removed long before I joined."

I agree, that I've heard the same as well. I really think a lot of this boils down to individual preferences etc. For instance, I tend to run a Two Way, PowerForward, and Playmaker on my Two Way lines. I've found that on occasion an entire line could be effected by one of these players not gelling with the others. Likewise, I've found that the one that is performing the worst, when changed, makes the entire team more cohesive. It's more complex than I give it credit for.

As for your comments on how long tactic changes take to get to a full bar, I may agree with a 20-25 game stretch a bit more as well. I am curious as to whether or not the average age of your team (experience) defines how quickly that bar changes.

#32275 Shootout Lineup

Posted by EXXEO on January 17, 2018 - 11:20 PM

I am going to add a little to this idea - there are times when one of my teams get an injury that we actually find a way to get a win but more often than not we lose. I think part of that is that it opens up wide the chances of dysfunction occurring on that line thus leading to more scoring opportunities for the opponent. In addiction to adding a SO lineup, could there just be a depth chart option? I like the idea of limiting the active roster to 23 (giving the GM a bench C,F, and D slot). Then for each line you could set who would be the secondary fill person in the case of an injury. While the bench players may not gain a ton of experience on the ice they would still get an added boost for just being present with the active roster (that's all theoretical).

Our day today following beating the (former) #1 Team yesterday:

We played on the road today against the worst team in the league who had 0 wins to their name. To be safe I left my best goalie in at net to ensure no weird upset would occur. In the 2nd my team Captain (24YO, 6'1", 194 lbs) gets into a fight...and loses to a 40 year old 5'10", 170 Lb. guy! Despite the humiliation my Captain puts us up by 1 ending the 2nd period.

Then it happens...an injury to my veteran 3rd liner. No big deal right? Immediately following that we tank and have 3 straight goals dumped on us and can't seem to score another despite having almost every statistical advantage at the end of the match...bah! To make matters worse, one of my old goalies that we departed with gets the first win for the opponent for the season. What a flaming bag of poo!

I've seen players says that they have no injury issues but my top line C went down for 10 days yesterday and one of my guysbin Biscuit send down for 9 days today. Hmm...
