    Next in the world rankings is Зубры (Bisons). 
    They have the 3 Maxims leading them: the center Navitski of South Pole, winger Sadowski of Mississauga, and defenseman Kavalchuk of the Tornadoes. Their starter goalie Kovalevich is young and decent, but... an injury to him can quite bury this team. They have an impressive first line, winger depth looks good too, and lots of experienced guys on the roster (with hungry youngsters waiting to take their places already). In the cons column next to the goalie "depth" there is the lack of quality d-men, and they look like struggling in ambition, and it seems they find it hard to motivate themselves for big games..(maybe because of the lack of ambition?  )

    #12 on the rankings are the Danish Lions.
    Captained and led by an absolutely top tier center, Ulrik Kristensen. All of them come from GHL and SHL, only one assigned to affiliate. As from a north European team we expected, they are pretty big guys as well  Their talent is amazing, just look at Dam, Lorentzen, Søndergaard, or their top defenseman Rasmussen. In goal they have a very experienced squad, but as their ability is close, they can make each other perform even better..(Honorable mention is North Shore's Argus Søndergaard, who is 40 years old, but since l did the squad, improved to 87 to be #3, and is the best goalie in the SHL with 50 games started! But as he is #1 in his club l think he might be retired from internationals.. ) 
    On the downside is their big games traits, I guess they could do with more determined guys, but as #12 in real world, they look like a very decent squad.

    Well, I started with random small teams, and when l started again, first went through the already done teams, then with the new ones l decided to go according to the IIHF world rankings. The last "original" small team is Les Bleus.
    They have a few elite players, like Rodolphe Jahic of the Bandits, or the young gun El Madkouri, who is trying to build himself up in the SHL. Their core looks quite fine, and on forwards side depth is good also. But their lack of leadership (2 of their designated leaders would barely make the line up, at least they are young) and anxiety of big games could cause them serious problems. Also they have a lot of playmakers, but no scorers..:D  And at last... where the hell are the french goalies in the game? They should really look for a middle-high tier canadian guy with french name if they want to be competitive!

    Next team is Risi (meanin Lynx).
    At first they look like a good middle tier team, who are very nice off the ice, but kinda tough to meet them at the game. It looks like they have 2 quite good lines, and then quality drops a bit, but for a small nation like them, I guess it's normal. Their top attackers are Jan Kosir (Golden Flyers) and Dominik Oresnik (Razorbacks) who can pull this team in their prime years. On the D side, by far the top pair is Davor Novak (Hawks) and Alexander Pirjevec (Outlaws), who are stilly very young, so the future looks bright. In goal 3 kinda similar players: Uros Horvat looks the best, and he is quite Heroic, but here form can be a big factor when picking the starter

    Next up are the Eagles. 
    If you look at them, their core team looks like a good, stable average one, with no real stars but reliable guys all around. The D has plenty of talent with the already grown youngsters. They have even younger forwards who are not elite level, but could be good depth players in the future (didn't look at ratings..:D ). Key players will be Sandro Koch from the Black Devils who looks very good at the age of 23, the same could be said about Foresters' D-man Angelo Braun, and Razorbacks experienced  goalie Yannik Meyer. They look like a good mix in every aspects of personality traits also. (By the way, if anyone knows how to represent Belarus flag in excel, heeelp. that white-red stripe on the left is killing me, l tried, but looks lame..  )

    Some silver lining on the goals above.
    1. Bolduc vanished down the stretch and didn't even end up top 5 in goals... but thenhe turned it on in the playoffs and led the postseason in goals.
    2. Similar to above, Zluky did not accomplish the regular season goal, but ended up leading all defensemen in points during the playoffs.
    5. Same story, Cline led the postseason in +/-.
    So basically most of the player goals that I had set for the regular season where accomplished in the playoffs by those same players.

    Third of the season update:
    1) Rafael Bolduc - 89 OVR Forward ... most GHL goals.
    Bolduc has 13 goals and is currently 6 goals back of the leaders (Whitely and Breton, 19).  Probably not possible to catch them as they are playing lights out, but a Top 5 finish in goals for Bolduc would be a success.
    Bolduc now at 31 goals, currently tied for 5th, and 5 back of Elie-Breton.  Still eyeing that top 5 finish, hoping for top 2.
     
    2) Kvido Zluky - 86 OVR Defenseman ... most GHL Points by a defenseman.
    Zluky currently has 17 points.  Leader has 24.  I expect a late season surge.  Although he will have to catch his own teammate first, Nickerson, who has 22.
    Zluky has 43 points.  The leader has 54.  This one is slowly slipping away.  He is currently 3rd in +/- and the pair of Zluky-Nickerson is Corsi 60 and PDO 70.  Can't ask for much more.
     
    3a) Henri Pohl - 83 OVR Goalie ... I want this guy to win Vezina.  Given his low endurance and the fact that my team wins might be lower than usual, I don't think that is possible.  Instead, I am going to try and get him 50-55 starts with the goal of GHL's best save percentage.
    Abort!  Abort!  I folded on this one early and I'm not happy about it.  But Pohl shouldn't have been as bad as he was.  Oh well.  Time to move on.
     
    3b)  I will play the hot hand in goal and Pohl will be given a long leash to keep the starting job.  In the event George Mercredi earns the starting job from Pohl, the same goal applies.
    This guy has been a dud as well.  A couple of games ago he blew a 4-0 lead halfway through the second.  High expectations for a pair of Heroic veterans did not work out.
     
    4) Svend Clausen - 82 OVR Forward ... most GHL Points and/or Goals by a rookie.
    Another dud.  Clausen has 1 point in 10 games and has spent most of the season in the AAHL.  My goals for the less skilled players were a bit unreasonable.  Lesson learned.
    4 points in 20 games.  All assists.  Hopefully he bounces back next season with a more consistent role.
     
    5)  Jeremie Cline - 97 OVR Center ... best GHL +/-.
    Cline is sitting at +18.  Leader is +24.  This can change in a blink.
    Cline is a +38.  The leader is +46.  This one is still in reach, although there are 2 other Stealheads, Nickerson and Zluky, sitting at +40.
     
    6)  Any single player on the Stealheads to record a Gordie Howe Hattrick.  If accomplished, that player will earn a $2M roster bonus.
    Not yet, but hopeful.
    Still nothing.  Very disappointing.

    First up - GEORGE MERCREDI (Goalie)
    As Cage took off in Season 1, George Mercredi, the then 89 overall keeper, found himself in a tough scenario as backup goalie on the St. Thomas Stray Cats.  The team appeared dominant from the get go, but he sat behind 28 year old Gregoire Wright (95 overall) on the depth chart.  Looking to clear cap space to build out his roster, manager Erzac scoured the league for potential suitors for Mercredi when he came across the Deferiet Leopards (now Big Delta Stealheads) and noticed that their goalie situation was garbage (two 83 overalls).  Erzac quickly messaged the Leopards manager, Paul T, looking for a trade.  The asking price... a mere GHL 2nd round pick.  Not knowing what the upcoming drafts would look like, Paul T hesitated for a split second before accepting the offer, which thrust Mercredi into a starting role.
    Mercredi's confidence after the trade seemed to be sky high as he led the Deferiet Leopards to a 20-0 start, making them the last team to lose a game in any game world after the GPHM refresh.  Mercredi would finish the season with a 35-11-3 record with a .936 save percentage and 1.92 GAA.  Unfortunately Paul T was aware that Mercredi was aging and jumped at an opportunity to acquire a much younger goalie at the time in Zach Woodley.  The 23 year old 91 overall Woodley appeared to be the long term solution for the Leopards in net, but the love affair never really worked out.  Both goalies posted respectable season 1 numbers, but the Leopards were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the #7 seed Bulldogs 3-1.  Mercredi's old team, the Stray Cats, ended up winning the Gold Cup in season 1 leaving Mercredi wondering what could have been.  The Leopards decided to move on from Mercredi at the end of season 1 and they would regret it a few seasons later. 
    After his dominant stint with the Leopards, Mercredi went on to guard the crease for the Parkland Lightning Bolts (season 2) and Miami Angels (season 3).  Both teams would relegate and Mercredi would comtemplate retirement.  After long talks with his family and agent, Mercredi decided to test the waters in season 4 and signed on with the newly promoted Bodmin Bangers.
    Season 4 with Bodmin turned out to be highly successful as he went 37-18-3 with a .914 save percentage and 2.63 GAA and a 4th place finish.  In the 2nd round of the season 4 playoffs, Mercredi found himself facing a familiar opponent, his old team, the Big Delta Stealheads (formerly Deferiet Leopards).  After going down 0-2, the Bangers, led by Mercredi, turned it around and ended up winning the next 3 games to defeat his old club.  Unfortunately the run came to an end in the conference finals where they lost to the eventual champions, Dragons.
    At the end of season 4, Big Delta showed an interest in acquiring back their old keeper as they were frustrated with their current goalie Michele Amick for his lackluster performances in big games, and they were not confident that 83 overall Henri Pohl was the answer either, despite a dominant season 4.  Mercredi was traded for Amick and he decided to give his career one more shot with his old club, despite multiple opinions around the league that he would retire.  Mercredi returned for season 5 knowing that he would be completing with Henri Pohl for the starting job.  Both Pohl and Mercredi struggled early on and Big Delta played musical chairs in goal, eventually settling on 19 year old Colby Gloria.  With Pohl's skills fading quickly, Mercredi earned the backup job mid season and throughout the playoffs.  The season ended in dream fashion with Big Delta winning the Gold Cup.  After captain Jeremie Cline hoisted the Cup, he immediately handed it to Mercredi.  His glory had finally been achieved as he skated around the Delta Dome with the Cup held high over his head.
    At the end of season 5, at age 40, George Mercredi decided to call it quits.  His career complete.  He will go down as one of the greatest Cage goalies of the early seasons.

    Notable Retire Season 5 - Manuel Wyss - Defenseman
    A team is only as strong as its weakest link.  The big contracts, the scoring titles, and stars of the game often go to the household name stars, but it's the players battling it out on the front lines lower on the depth chart that make or break a team's true success.  Manuel Wyss was always in the trenches shoring up his teammates' weakest links.  In only five short GHL seasons, he played on five different teams, often going unnoticed on each change in scenery, but always over performing above his expectations.
    Beginning in Season 1, Wyss began with the Lake Viking Bulldogs.  To say it was a tumultuous start to a new league and new team would be an understatement.  At 30 years old and a rating of 83ovr, Wyss found himself in a top 4 roll with the Bulldogs.  After an 8-12 start, the Bulldogs continued to juggling their lineup, going through 10 D-men on the roster during that first year.  Wyss found himself a casualty of that slow start and was traded to Enigma Rage in a swap that included Mario Vuillermet and Rowan Talbot-Gervais (step-brother to Ricky Gervais).   Wyss was able to solidify a roster spot, getting 19 pts (8-11) for the remaining 60 games of the season and a 7th place playoff spot.  After netting a goal in a hard fought 3-2 series loss to the West Chicago Hawks, Rage's season was over and so would be Wyss's time with the team.
    At the start of Season 2, after being waived unceremoniously by Rage, the Lightning Bolts picked him up for a two year stint as the team underwent the transition to the Miami Angels.  Teaming up with the goalie George Mercredi,  Wyss continued to show his ability to outshine some of his teammates as he scored 33 pts (15-18) in a strong depth role.  However, once again Wyss found himself on the losing end of a first round playoff loss after going down three games to two in the five game series.  The transition to Miami Angels for the team was not successful and Wyss only found himself starting 48 games and by far his worst year of his career.  
    Following Season 3, at the start of Season 4 perennial under performers Eldred Elite picked Wyss up on a no frills one-year, $1.5 million contract.  It was a chance for Wyss to prove he belonged in the GHL and Elite to garner some defenseman depth.  Starting the season in the AAHL, Wyss made the best use of his opportunity and had 34 pts (17-17) in 49 games before being called up to the top six of Elite and finished the season with 13 pts in 24 games and a 0 +/- rating and a Corsi of 51.7%, all which caught the attention of Elite management of his ability to be a clutch performer in a depth role.  With Wyss in his role on the the 3rd line D corps, Elite crawled up the standings to finish strongly in fifth place.  Unfortunately, both for Wyss and the Elite, the playoffs ended almost as quickly as they had started and were swept out by the eventual Western Conference champion Victoria Regals.  
    Now at the age of 35, Wyss resigned with Eldred Elite to try and continue both teams late season 4 success at a very paltry $1,147,000 for another year of service.  Wyss continued to make the most of his time on the ice putting up a career tying 33 pts (12-21) in 80 games and a +8 with averaging only 14 mins a game, his lowest total ice time of his career.  After a strong season both for Wyss and Elite, the storybook season came to an end during game five against the West Chicago Hawks in the conference semi-finals.  Wyss played strong for the club putting up four points (1-3) in nine games in limited action as the #6 d-man. 
    Following the season, Wyss was offered another one-year contract by Elite and all indications were that he would return as a strong veteran to help transition the defensemen corps to the new guard that will lead the team over the next 5-10 seasons.  Unfortunately, facing age 36 and the current health crisis facing the world, he decided he would now take some time to spend with his family and go out on a high note with his season with Elite.  Some champions never get rings, but will always be remembered by the fans and fellow players for what they bring to the rink each and every day.  
    Manuel Wyss finished his career after five GHL seasons with  310 games, 50 goals, 75 assists, and a takeaway to giveaway ratio of 85/8.

    Since we already track all player stats and records season by season, it is even clear post-reset that a historical league leaderboard is needed to make league seem more “living”.
    Many of us would see huge value and added motivation if the League History page displayed player categories like Most Career League Goals/Assists/Points  in a Top 20 format. 
     
    This could be extended to a team format as well, with categories like Team Wins in [League Level], clearer records like Most Wins in a Season, etc. 
     
    With elements like Team Stories and the blog becoming more active, these categories will let us keep better track on the league history and create more storylines to follow for our teams. 
     
    Anders, I hope this is something you consider adding, as this was mentioned multiple times by a fair number of managers.

    Actually did this, Patrushev from Sharshin and Nazarov. Surprising.
    5)   Sagiv Schuppan - (87 G (rookie)):                                                  40 wins 
    31 wins, 4 shutouts, and finally settled in and been amazing late in the season with a couple of shutouts. Living up to his potential and 40 wins next season is not unthinkable. 
    6)   Roger Muller - (92 C):                                                                     FINALLY HIT GODDAMN 50 POINTS
    DONE! Just - exactly 50 points on the season. Frustrating, but there is progress.
    Team Objective:                                                                                   Score 300 goals, win 45 games
    DONE. 54 wins total including OT wins, good for 1st in the East. 318 GF. Record 1866 CF, and 57.9 CF%. This team absolutely destroyed at even-strength.
