    Peekaboo reacted to Paul T in Greatest Single Game Performances   
    This doesn't qualify as a great single game performance, but sometimes it's the little things.
    Today the St. Thomas Stray Cats led the Big Delta Stealheads 1-0 early in the 3rd period.  At the 4-minute mark, Stealhead defenseman Aarno Reijonen dropped the gloves with Stray Cat (and former Stealhead) Zinedine Argouin.  Reijonen got his @ss kicked... bad... but that's besides the point.  The fight lit a fire under Big Delta and over the next 8.5 minutes, they out-shot the Stray Cats 11-1, scoring on 2 of those 11 shots and eventually holding on for the 2-1 win. 
    Aarno Reijonen took one for the team and that sh!+ doesn't go unnoticed.
    His stat line:  no goals, no assists, no hits, no shots, no blocks, no giveaways, no takeaways, 1 fight, 74 performance.

    Ah, Rackley...
    Yeah, I like Huthala, he's on my (well, not too short) shortlist for quite some time. I think I did try to claim him last season as well, hehe.
    Anyways, nice performance and rarely (if at all) seen by skater

    I'd love a targeting option.  For instance, we already have Left Wing Lock, why not have a target for certain player, etc.  I also wish we could differentiate between lines the tactic they use.  Some I want to be assholes, others I want to only take a punch and walk away.  Having everyone on the team with the same tactic takes away the point of having different lines.  But realize I am nitpicking at this point!  But there are teams where all I really care about is hurting them as much as possible no matter the final score, haha.  Just give us THAT option and I'll be happy!

    This is what I like to see.  Arrogant Lazy Agitator takes a cheap shot and our guy immediately drops the gloves.  And if we lose the fight, we take a cheap shot of our own a minute later.

    In addition to Fair Play tactic, I kinda wish Scrum logic was an option.
    A) Always play smart
    B.) Retaliate when necessary
    C) Get revenge at all costs

    follow him this season.  Season 2 he was reliable.  Very rarely any great games, but no horrible games either.  Last season he would get 2 shutouts followed up by 3 games of getting pulled.  But it's going to be the same thing again this season, I'll have to out shoot opponents by 10+ in order to win.  It's just how we roll.

    I use him with Ranta-Lamoreux-Chene... I'd say one of the best 2nd lines in the league
    Anyways... due to his bad faceoffs, I did all kinds of experiments... At one point, he was centering my 4th (energy) line as powerforward... but used him on all special units as a winger (both 1st and 2nd pp and 1st pk). His minutes varied from 10 to 20+. But as you could anticipate, his results were not so consistent. I moved him on winger on the 2nd late in last season and he seems to be ok there.
    I do play my 2nd and 3rd line as twoway, so he fits my playstyle perfectly.
    I guess time will tell
    He is always valuable trade asset, due to his skills and traits.

    Truth be told I was going to trade Lang either this season or next. The core of my skilled forward group is almost all 30+ right now and he was the best trade piece I had to address it. While I could have asked for Lamoureau or Chene in return, as I would have wanted a center back if I got a player, I wanted to go the more diverse route that gave me more options. I have Grimard at where Lang was at S1 with a, for the moment, better team in front of him than Lang did during S1. I'm not expecting quite the same miracle play from Grimard like I got from Lang as the league is better as well but I am hoping to get something between last season and the season before in terms of performance from Grimard. If he gets off to a good start I should be fine relative to my expectations. If he doesn't, this could be a difficult season.
     
    While the picks I got for Lang don't add up to Lamoureau or Chene themselves the loss in the performance from not having Lang should take me lower in the standings which should improve my own draft picks. I'm hoping to pick around 12th in the draft with my pick and no higher than 25th with the other 1st round pick. If the upcoming draft is as good as the last that potentially means I will have a crack at a mid 80s overall player with my first 1st round pick. If I pick below 16th with my pick either I got shafted in the draft order or... Well, to be blunt, you all suck. Edit: I joke. If my team does end up in the middle of the playoff bracket I would be amazed at the performance from my team to have done that but I am not expecting that. I wasn't expecting to finish 1st in the conference and 2nd in points overall last season with the ~20th ranked team talent wise either though so who knows?
     
    Then again I did try this vaguely similar thing with my other team. It was looking fine with 10 games left in the season and more than 10 points up on the team in 11th place. However the players inexplicably quit playing after a sudden drop in team confidence from blue 'ok' to yellow 'concerned' after losing to a top team in a fairly respectable manner. The prior 3 games were all wins, with one being against another one of the better teams in the league, and my team had a positive record over the last 10 games, including those 3 wins. Yet for some reason the game said, "Nope, screw you" and I said "ok" as nothing I did changed anything. Granted, that team I intentionally built flawed from the outset with no proper playmakers what so ever and I went rather cheap on a few fill in players as well. However, after starting off very poorly I did actually sign a playmaker from FA and my team was above .500 from that point on until the final 10 games of the season where the players altogether stopped playing. Such is how it is. It actually doesn't bother me that much as I get to play a few players on my main roster this season that I really like and couldn't play in the SHL.

    OK, so there's a few interesting storylines heading into Season 4, but I think the one I am interested in the most is Cedar Rapids.  It is fairly well documented that this team always overachieves, but after trading away their stud goalie, Lang, they go into the current season with only a single player rated in the 90s.  That player being Vendelin Jaros... a 163 lb. friendly yet nervous winger from the Czech Republic.  Overall rating in itself doesn't mean everything, but it does give a clear indication of how well rounded players are.  This team could easily finish 1st or 10th.  Only time will tell.

    I should show you the offer I got yesterday.  It was worse than that.  But would never make a human trade public.  Granted it was a counter to an offer of mine, so maybe they just hated mine so bad it was more of an F off response (even though mine was somewhat fair), but still.  Makes that Computer trade look like a steal.

    If you're a whisky drinker and got some cash to spend I'd suggest Johnnie Walker Blue Label. Bowmore single malt is great, but also pricey. If you want something to enjoy more often, Famous Grouse is a good choice.
     
    From mixed drinks, I always choose Jack n' Coke. Better taste result than any rum I've ever tried with coke. I know rum n' coke is a thing, but I like my rum straight.
     
    From rums I like to go for the smoother ones, which means spiced mixes. Captain Morgan Spiced Gold and Negrita Golden Spice are both great ones to down while going through FA's during off season. 
     
    From whisky liquors Southern Comfort is the way to go. Sweet and easy.
