    TB's defense is underrated and Brady has a habit of bringing out the best in his teammates. Brady may no longer have the tools to singlehandly bring a SB to a team, but a possible "Brady effect" might just be enough to get them into the running.

    I think the Bucs stand a chance, still wouldn't say they're a top 5 team yet though.

    While there is no question that Drew Brees is a future HoF, it is difficult to see how he would ever be rated ahead of Tom Brady.

    I think he has one more year left in him, but he's definitely not as good as he has been. Especially without Gronk there to bail him out.

    While I am not a fan of Brady, I do have to agree with Blackbeard that he is one  of the best ever. The truth is, he succeeds because he meshes well with Belichick's system though. If I had to build a team of players from any era, my QB, hands down would be Joe Montana

    Paul T got a reaction from MarkZ in Injuries   
    I'm afraid your situation can't be easily explained.  Think it's a bit of randomness and bad luck at a bad time in the season.  I noticed some of the skaters that were injured had low-ish endurance, but nothing out of the ordinary for your league level - and you definitely aren't overplaying them.  Your goalies also seem to have a nice rotation.  If you or your opponent were playing Hard or Dirty it might explain things a little more, but I have no insight into that.
    As far as what leads to players getting injured more frequently in the game, there are numerous factors.
    - Injury proneness of the specific player
    - Player fatigure... players being exhausted are more at risk of suffering an injury.  There's a few things that impact player fatigue... too much ice time, low endurance, training intensity.
    - You or your opponent playing Hard or Dirty

    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!
