Hello! As i saw several GHL power rankings, I felt that why not see what's going on a league below, this feeling combined with how I love power rankings made me to create this ranking. I calculated using erzac's method (http://forums.gmgames.org/topic/7614-ghl-s10-power-rankings/?do=findComment&comment=27461), after day 5, so right before the season starts. So here is the ranking of Howitzer SHL 1. Stockton Thunderbolts (GM: Emille Hamilton) OFF: 86 DEF: 86 SG: 82 OVR: 84.2 Previous Finish: Relegated from GHL (They had only 7 Attackers, 4 Defenders and 1 Goalie) 2. Walkerton Blue Knights (GM: Charlie Burnaby) OFF: 71 DEF: 84 SG: 90 OVR: 83,7 Previous Finish: Relegated from GHL 3. Parkville Kingsmen (Computer) OFF: 79 DEF: 82 SG: 86 OVR: 82,8 Previous Finish: 13th 4. Coquitlam Seahawks (GM: Dean Turner) OFF: 81 DEF: 84 SG: 83 OVR: 82,8 Previous Finish: 3th, Eliminated second round 5. Green Lane Citizens (Computer) OFF: 82 DEF: 81 SG: 83 OVR: 82,0 Previous Finish: 2nd, Eliminated first round 6. Buckingham Breakers (Computer) OFF: 82 DEF: 84 SG: 80 OVR: 81,9 Previous Finish: 6th, Eliminated first round They have only 10 Attackers 7. Bakersville Bears (GM: Brett McLellan) OFF: 81 DEF: 80 SG: 84 OVR: 81,8 Previous Finish: 4th, eliminated second round 8. Batchawana Speedy Cats (GM: Máté Csizmadia) OFF: 81 DEF: 81 SG: 83 OVR: 81,7 Previous Finish: 9th 9. Walleyview Pharaos (Computer) OFF: 80 DEF: 80 SG: 84 OVR: 81,4 Previous Finish: 7th 10. Deadwood Desperados (GM: Mario Lemieux) OFF: 80 DEF: 80 SG: 83 OVR: 81,2 Previous Finish: 8th 11. North Atlanta Bearcats (GM: John LeClair) OFF: 80 DEF: 80 SG: 83 OVR: 81,1 Previous Finish: Promoted from BHL 12. West Rushville Oilers (Computer) OFF: 81 DEF: 80 SG: 82 OVR: 80,8 Previous Finish: 12th 13. Copper Mountain Bandits (GM: M. Holmes) OFF: 78 DEF: 78 SG: 84 OVR: 80,4 Previous Finish: Promoted from BHL 14. Tway Twisters (Computer) OFF: 78 DEF: 80 SG: 81 OVR: 80,0 Previous Finish: 11th 15. Arkadelphia All Stars (GM: Kirk Regan) OFF: 78 DEF: 78 SG: 81 OVR: 79,0 Previous Finish: Promoted from BHL 16. Miami Phantoms (Computer) OFF: 81 DEF: 77 SG: 76 OVR: 77,6 Previous Finish: 10th As you can see, the teams relegated here have some roster problems, for the Thunderbolts I'm sure it's affecting the strenhth, but that's their team at the moment. I will be eager to see how can they cope with the lack of depth, and who can they sign so late. For me the biggest question is that can the Blue Knights' defense and star goalie win matches instead of their weakly looking offense ( or as they say Defense wins championships- can it happen in hockey also?) Good luck to everyone, it looks like a close season, maybe only the Phantoms look a bit weaker than the others, everyone else looks to have a chance. If you want some updates, tell me, I don't know how much time will I have, but I will do my best!
