  1. Hello FHMers, EHMers, other sim gamers I am not familiar with, and hockey fans alike, I wanted to share with you a wonderful, long lasting community that is looking for more hockey fans/gamers/sports nuts to join us called the SHL. The SHL, Simulation Hockey League, is always open to new members. If you've ever fantasized about what it would be like to live the life of a hockey player, to be drafted in juniors as a young prospect and create your hype in the hockey world then this community is for you. You have the opportunity to live out your hockey career, from juniors to the eventual big league, leaving your name in the history books. We are going into our 25th season and would like you to be a part of our established and affectionate community, more on that later. First here is what the site is all about and what you can expect to get out of it! 'BE-A-PRO EXPERIENCE - A rich, personal hockey experience. Build your player the way YOU want him/her to be. Be a player and try to live out a hall of fame career and find the rewards of your success eternally inscribed in the SHL Hall of Fame. Success is based on your activity within our community. There are entertaining activities you can do on your own time and weekly training that allow you to improve in skills you need to succeed. Every game is simulated on the STHS hockey simulator, an advanced program that has been the backbone of our league since inauguration. (Similar to EHM) PROGRESSION SYSTEM - When you first embark on your hockey journey you will create a young player just eligible for the SMJHL (Junior) Draft, from there you will show the world what your potential could be. Next you will find yourself eligible to the SHL (Professional/NHL) Draft and your future within the SHL will just be beginning. Each team is owned and operated by real humans, these members have established themselves as helpful and highly participant bodies of our community. They choose you to be the next face of their franchise. DRAFT DAY - Experience what it is like to wait for your name to be selected. This is a full draft experience where real people will draft you and spend their resources on your potential. Become the next big steal, or potentially the next big bust. Every decision made is personal and rewarding because of our community. Will you be the next McDavid/Eichel? REAL PEOPLE, REAL OWNERS - Every aspect of the league is ran by real people for the progression of the league, from junior player hoping to one day make the big leagues to SHL superstar, to even owner of an historic franchise. Every detail is ran and executed by real humans. Every decision from team lineups, draft day selections and last minute trade deadline deals are done by real human owned teams. Will you find yourself a part of that trade deadline package sending you to a playoff contender? Or will you be a young and coming prospect dealt in a deal to a team on the rebuild? COMMUNITY - Once your player is drafted onto a team you will gain access to a private locker room for your organization. Here is often where the closest relationships develop. This is an area just for your team to talk about whatever you want and reflect on the season in front of you and what the future may hold. This is a hockey community who is passionate about their sport but even if you're not a hockey guru or follower but enjoy the idea we are a welcoming and friendly bunch to all! CASUAL OR HARDCORE - Your experience is completely determined by you. Busy life? You don't need to spend hours a week to improve your player or participate, all activity levels are welcome. You can be a casual player, or take on a larger role and find yourself taking jobs within the league, or even becoming an owner of a franchise yourself. You get what you put in, but time is not the most important factor for SHL success. You will have a pleasant and fun experience by just hanging around with us. ESTABLISHED LONGEVITY - We are going into our celebratory 25th season and have been in place for over half a decade! Although our community is old, our members are both veterans and rookies alike. We're a very welcoming bunch, and it is quite easy to jump right in and have fun with all of us! Very friendly community that is always there to answer any question you may have, regardless of how silly you may think it is. FREE - To clear up any confusion, I want to emphasize that our community/site is completely free. Its free to join, free to participate, free to do what you want. Our league runs off the hard work of our community, we all serve each other in that regard. I'm not selling you anything here, just offering you a welcome to our community. You have nothing to lose by checking us out. =] Besides we're a helpful friendly bunch.That sums up an overview of what the Simulation Hockey League has to offer. We're a growing, established and loving community that has been around for many years now. We hope you take a moment and check us out. You can find us at -- I would highly appreciate it if you could list BeanSobie as your referral when creating your player. =] Best Wishes,

  3. Friday August 15th, 2014 Mr. Timothy Coxe 2699 Eagle Mountain Drive Abbotsford, BC Tim, I can honestly say out of the 18 forwards we had here at camp Dylan Bailey was the worst. He played a lot on a line with Jerry Dupont’s nephew. Let me tell you that kid is gonna take someone’s head off if he doesn’t cool his jets. Dylan on the other hand has the exact opposite issue, I think he might be too nice for such high level hockey. He gets called for a lot of tripping, hooking, and holding penalties; but never a slash or rough. His skating is above the rest of the kids here, and I think some of them even resent him for it. It’s easy to tell he used to be a figure skater, but looking at how he’s growing I think this is going to be the better career path for him, once he learns what to do with the stick. I don’t think he’s going to be a very good Bantam player, or even Midget; but the team that takes a shot on him in the draft is gonna have a pretty good hockey player in three or four years. I’m excited to see how far he will go. Billy Byrne
  4. Monday August 11th, 2014 Rosemary Jennings 33452 Tessaro Crescent Apart. 432 Abbotsford, BC Dear Mom, I hope this letter finds you as well as my last two. Things have been going really good. Cuddles, that’s Travis Cuddlichuck, has been working with me on some of the basic defending tactics. He said because I’m such a good skater I could be a pretty good 2-way forward, like Jonathan Towes. That might be getting a little ahead of ourselves. But it is so nice of him to help me out like he does. I wish he did not live in Ontario, it would be so much fun to be in the same league as him, or even on his team one day! Speaking of Cuddles and our team, I think we have the best team here. We’ve won a lot of the scrimmages, no thanks to me. I get called on a penalty almost every other shift. The penalties are a bunch of stupid things that I do because I get out of position or I don’t read the play right. Marc Dupont has scored the most goals out of everyone here, but he isn’t really that much fun to be on the ice with. When things don’t go his way he always is yelling on the bench. Coach B had to take him into his office after one outburst. I think he threatened to send him home, because he’s been a little bit better this week. If you see Mr. Coxe let him know how I am doing, and thank him again for this kindness. He really blessed me with this opportunity. I love you. I miss you. And yes, I am having fun. Love, Dyllie
  5. From: Travis Kudleychuk Sent: Sunday, July 27, 2014 22:02 To: Thomas Kudleychuk Subject no subject Dad, Thanks for letting me come to this training facility, it's a lot colder than I would have expected in July... but that's Calgary for you. The programs being run are incredible. We’ve been divided up into three “teams”, and guess what!? They named me captain! Do you remember Eli Dura from Dryden? He moved to BC last year and he is here too. One of the coaches heard him call me Captain Cuddles on the first day, everyone thinks it’s hilarious so they voted me captain of my team. I really like a lot of the guys over here. Most of them are going to be drafted into the WHL next year, so it’s kind of fun to talk about who we think will be drafted where. I think Jordan Boyle is the real deal (he’s one of the other team captains). He’s got to be the best stickhandler I’ve ever met. The other captain is Jay Henry. Jay is my easily the best defenseman here, he is 10 months older than me so I’m not too ashamed to admit that, but I really wish I could skate like he does. His slapper is also really nice, but he’s helped me work on mine and I think it’s already getting better Jack Wandowhich is the best forward on Jay’s team, he isn’t quite as good at stickhandling as Boyle, but he has a good pokecheck and works harder on the PK drills than any other forward, I think he’s like a young Datsyuk. As far as my team goes we have a real mix of talent, but the best player far and away is this blond kid from Quebec, Marc Dupont. Dupes is a real good goal scorer and can move around the other team’s defense with ease, I’m glad I don’t have to deal with him playing against me. He does have an anger issue though, we don’t really check each other that hard but the other day he buried Wando into the wall and I had to hold back Jay from trying to kick Marc’s French butt. There’s one guy who’s really taken a liking to me as well. I forget what Dylan’s last name is, but there is one thing you won’t forget about him, he has wheels. I think he said he used to do figure skating but he wasn’t really interested in it anymore and wanted to try something new. He’s only been playing hockey for a little over a year, so he makes some bad plays sometimes but he is trying and I think he will get drafted by a WHL team based on his skating alone. He’s a shy kid, but when he comes out he is really quite nice. Anyway, it’s getting late and we have an early scrimmage tomorrow. I’m really excited for my bantam year to start when I get home, I think I’m gonna do pretty good with everything I’m learning here. Tell mom and Kathryn I say hi, and I miss them. Thanks again, Travis
  6. The Skaters Name Travis “Cuddles” Kudleychuk [kood-LUH-chuhk]DOB December 16, 2000Hometown Kenora, ONHeight 6’2Weight 205Position Right DefenseStrengths Incredible leader, will be able to step into a captaincy role at any level. Is a great checker and is willing to take a lot of character roles in the backend. Has a strong understanding of hockey and is willing to work to make himself a better players.Weaknesses Lacks a second gear in his skating that will prevent him from joining the rush when he has to. His puck moving and slapshot need to get better. Right now projects to be a penalty killing defender only. His selfless style of play will cause him to have a lot of injuries, and he will take a bad penalty on occasion.CHL Draft 2016NHL Draft 2019 Name Marc Dupont [doo-PONT]DOB April 11, 2000Hometown Lévis, QCHeight 5’10Weight 195 lb.Position CentreStrengths Marc is a great hockey player for his age. His skating ability is above average, and his puck skills make him a top line talent. Will have no problem getting to the next level. Can one day become a true sniper.Weaknesses: His defensive abilities need to go a long way for him to ever think about professional hockey. His competitive nature often leads to him taking bad penalties and he has a mean streak unnecessary for his role on the team. Overconfidence also can lead to him driving a wedge between himself and his coaches.CHL Draft 2016NHL Draft 2018 Name Dylan Bailey [bEY-lee]DOB March 27, 2000Hometown Richmond, BCHeight 5’8Weight 150 lb.Position LWStrengths Dylan Bailey’s potential as a hockey player is hard to tell. Still new to the game he is learning and getting better everyday. His skating is top notch and will be his meal ticket to better leagues. He takes his conditioning seriously and hits the gym regularly.Weaknesses Undersized and underdeveloped at this age, Bailey still has a lot of developing to do before he is ready to move to the WHL. Has no real stick skills and is still learning the game. His Bantam year will be a huge year to see where he ends up eventually. CHL Draft 2015NHL Draft 2018
  7. Hello All, I'm looking to shake up the Dynasty boards and start a new type of dynasty, one that focuses not on the general manager but on the development of the players. I started a game with Mar. 2014 rosters and simmed the game ahead one year. I then went to the Bantam league and customized three newgens to be the starts of the show. I will be chronicling their careers as they try to make it to the NHL. I tried to vary their skill levels and potentials to hopefully get them into the NHL as realistic players. It'll be an interesting case study for the player development system, and something fun to do while we all wait for FHM2. The story will be done in a style similar to Big Six's The Base Ball Life of Patrick O'Farrell (an absolute classic dynasty), being told through emails, newspaper articles, letters, and maybe even some tweets. So without any further ado, let's dive into...
