  1. El Madkouri was a 70 point player in the GHL in his rookie year and the CF% leader on my team that season. Hope to see him back soon, and eclipsing those numbers, great player.
  2. I like that you're moving through some of the smaller nations - interesting to see. Can't wait for Russia .
  3. Season 9: GHL 1st place: 51-4-4-21 3rd Conference Title in 3 seasons. I Months later, when recounting the events of the statistically greatest and yet the most fundamentally disappointing season in the team’s history, Rasputin and Bure would share a look of disgust. “It was the bird”, firmly says Bure. “It was the goddamn bird.” Rasputin nods, still visibly angry. With the fourth season of the Five-Year Plan approaching, the rivalry with fellow East superpower Harrow Hawks is in full swing. Both teams realize that their path to the Cup is likely to run through each other, and so their regular-season meetings take the form of heavyweight bouts of two boxers feinting, testing each other out for the final battle to come. The teams are also competing in the FA. With a wave of high-profile forwards retiring and high-end attackers at a premium, Devils and Hawks target the same two young free agent forwards, Karacan and Willis. With 6 teams bidding and Vermilion low on cap space, ultimately Harrow gets both and beats Devils in the window. The teams are clearly operating with a similar squad building approach, targeting young, fast, physical players. Top among these is last year’s 2nd overall pick El Madkouri, who has publicly expressed his discontent on the bottom of the table Foxes and a desire to move to a contender. El Madkouri flirts with the Devils, calling out Rasputin’s project as emblematic of the kind of organization he wants to join. Rasputin, never one to turn down players that fit the Vermilion philosophy, responds in kind. Hawks, always quick to follow Vermilion’s lead, also enter the race, throwing offers at the Foxes. At first glance, El Madkouri is exactly what Vermilion needs. A young, hungry, extremely skilled powerforward with elite size and power, with a fair amount of speed and good hands, he is also a YouTube/Instagram sensation due to his flair and ability to engage his fans. Off the ice, there is a friendly rivalry between him and Hauk, already a social media darling. Tongue in cheek, El Madkouri challenges Hauk to a set of shooting and puckhandling drills, promising to join the team if Hauk beats his time. Hauk, confident as ever, stakes his Vermilion mansion on his victory. Rasputin only smirks. He welcomes the media attention. The planned event, billed as the Battle for the Frozen Throne, is a massive social media hit, with more than 200,000 viewers tuning into Twitch to watch it live. Foxes management does not object to the deal, especially after Rasputin promises to divert all the funds from the event as compensation for the breaches in league policy that are bound to occur. Black Devils staff build out a massive and imposing throne of ice at The Chasm. Sponsorships from Red Bull, Nike, and other media companies roll in. The attendee list at the live event grows. And, in front of a full house and hundreds of thousands of virtual viewers, Dieter Hauk overcomes El Madkouri by 3/4s of a second to claim the Frozen Throne. A deal is quick to be achieved, Vermilion shipping out a slew of picks and promising dman Eaglesham to the Foxes in return for their star. Welcomed quickly, shirts with El Madkouri’s name are a hit and crowds gather to watch his first skate with the Devils. After the first few practices, Rasputin announced that the young star will indeed play with Hauk and Monciau-Desormeaux on the Black Devils first line. To the surprise of many, though, Alexander plans to utilize El Madkouri as a playmaker. And the young star repays his confidence, operating with an unheard of CF% of 70, miles ahead of anyone else in the league. Using his physique and puckhandling to the greatest advantage, El Madkouri makes winning the puck along the boards, and cutting toward the net in a power move his trademark, equally comfortable finishing and setting up his linemates for tap-ins. With nearly a point per game pace on the Black Devils, El Madkouri will easily take the Rookie of the Year title at the end of the season. In the meantime, tensions are high between Vermilion and Harrow after their continuous playoff and top of the table clashes. Vermilion takes the first meeting of the season 4-3, and takes a comfortable 8-point lead at the top of the conference after 15 games, but the Hawks keep coming. They take both of the teams’ next two meetings, fiery, violent affairs. After a 3-6 home loss in which two Vermilion players exit with injuries after borderline hits, the Hawks’ bus is attacked by unruly Devils fans on its way out of the city. The Hawks retaliate the next game, clearing the benches, Kokko and Monciau-Desormeaux ejected after taking on Harrow players and knocking them to the ice in another comprehensive 4-1 away loss. Despite the absence of top playmaker Sandro Koch and top defenceman Davin Coronado, Vermilion keeps its hold on 1st place in the conference through the rollercoaster last quarter of the season. With 6 lead changes between Harrow and Vermilion at the top of the East, far and away beyond the competition with 20 point leads, this is the hottest title race the GHL has seen for some time. On the other side, the West-leading Highland Blazers see their previously unassailable 30 point lead over Vermilion midway into the season decrease to just 6 with a few games to go. With 7 games remaining and the Black Devils top again after a 20-3-4 run, it is clear that the East title will be decided in Game 75 at The Chasm. With Hawks one point behind, a win here for the Black Devils would put them a step ahead of their pursuers, leaving some margin for error in the run-up. A heavy-hitting, but surprisingly low-scoring title bout is decided by Peloso and who else but Monciau-Desormeaux scoring the Vermilion goals in a dominant home performance - the captains leading by example to give the Black Devils their 3rd straight GHL East title and first seed for the playoffs. This is a breakout season for Vermilion star C Hauk as well, leading the team with 33 goals and 76 points, and crediting his success to his new, flashy linemate, himself not far behind with 73. The playoffs beckon.
  4. This is actually a very competitive squad. And looks to be quite representative of real life - the cross-section of players is well represented across most leagues. Good to see, well done!
  5. This is looking like an extremely volatile combo. Always rated Yatchenko, and Veres has had some very impressive development the last two seasons. I'm 100% about chemistry between duos as a driver for success, so will be checking this one out during the season for sure.
  6. Are you thinking of doing this for other national teams? Would be cool and something I would like to see.
  7. Congratulations to everyone on an epic Season 10!

  9. II The next day, the hockey world wakes up to a shocking piece of news. TSN Hockey Insider breaks it, as usual, Bob McKenzie tweeting: “Am told the Hauk story has wings. Mega-deal involving both Vermilion picks, and two critical assets. 1st time in GHL history 1st overall pick moves same season.” “It’s true. Dieter Hauk is coming to Vermilion.” - announces Rasputin later in the day at a press conference. The Black Devils will indeed be giving up both their 1st and 2nd round picks, recently acquired ex-3rd overall pick LW Matis Howell, and two-way C Eliott Sureault - both bonafide top 6 players. Coming back the other way with Hauk is B-level prospect Morgan Skytte, a piece Rasputin thinks will be useful for the Devils bottom 6. It’s a steep price to pay, and comments across the league label it as a massive gamble despite Hauk’s clear superstar potential. But gambles are Rasputin’s bread and salt. “He [Hauk] is not a typical German. Fiery. Plays on the edge, isn’t constrained by rules, isn’t “clean”. He knows how good he is, but isn’t afraid to put himself to the test - otherwise he wouldn’t be here. I’ve met Dieter’s family. They serve bratwurst and borsch at the table - it’s that Russian heritage showing through.” “He’s got an attitude about him,” continues Alexander. “When he came out of the taxi, he shook Bure’s hand and said, in Russian, “I’m going to play like you.” That’s ballsy. I like that. He’s going to fit in well here.” The rest of the players agree. The profile of signings made by Vermilion continues to rise, and despite giving up a lot of depth for Hauk, this can only be good for the team. A massive crowd of 15,000 is present in the arena during Hauk’s unveiling and the Devils’ first practice with their new star, and Black Devils jerseys with his chosen #10 are sold out within days. Hauk practices on a line with Sandro Koch and Matej Stuk, immediately dubbed the “[expletive] line” by the fans. Koch loves it. “I played against Dieter in the World Jrs, and he is tough as nails, and angry as a hungry bear. I put him on his backside a couple of times, he did the same to me. I think he has Youtube videos. Really don’t like to play against this guy, very difficult player. But now, on the same team - now it’s going to be fun!” Hauk is instantly a social media star, with Youtube compilations of his practice and game moves clocking up hundreds of thousands of views. Charismatic and confident, he raises the Vermilion brand to another level, Instagramming team practices and afterparties, mobbed by fans outside of the arena. Flashy yet powerful on the ice, he has an incredibly quick initial few strides, and a Nathan MacKinnon-esque presence, moving and stickhandling faster than everyone else, constantly taking players on 1 on 1 - something which does show a selfish streak. From the outset, it’s clear that Rasputin and Bure intend to use Dieter in the sniper role as opposed to the playmaker he was in Medicine Hat. “With the playmakers we have in Koch, Sylvain, Gadsby, I think we can get Dieter the opportunity to try to score more goals than me” - winks Bure. And Hauk does. Opening up with a double against Highland, Hauk goes on to score 7 goals in his next 8 games. Despite Vermilion undergoing a slump in mid-season, the “[expletive] line” shines, with a 57% CF and clear chemistry between Hauk and Koch, the Devils’ young stars. With the lineup set, and no further roster shakeups coming this season, Rasputin focuses on the title again, and the team responds with an 8-game winning streak mid-season followed by winning 9 of 10 on the run-in to finish 1st with 48 wins and 154 points on the season, 9 ahead of 2nd place Pinehurst Razorbacks. Hauk finishes the season with 25 goals in 55 games with Vermillion, 58 points in total winning him the Calder trophy. His old team, Medicine Hat, bolstered by the pieces obtained from the Black Devils, wins the Western Conference. The Devils’ dominance shows on the stat line, as Gadsby leads the way with a team-record 87 points, with his linemate and team captain Monciau-Desormeaux pacing the team with 38 goals and 85 points - both performances etching them in Black Devils lore and elevating their veteran status to new heights. In the playoffs, however, it is the same concerning story. Vermilion handles underdog Batchawana Tornadoes, 3-2 with a complete lack of dominance, then falls to Eastern rival Wintersville Lancers 3-1, taken down by a defensive clinic and a brilliant performance by veteran star G Tobias Torres. Though winning a cup so quickly was not part of Rasputin’s plan, questions begin to be asked about the team’s inability to put together a long playoff run despite consistent domination in the regular season. Especially concerning is the performance of the team’s top line, with Gadsby, Monciau-Desormeaux, and Fogelberg a combined -16 in the 9 games. The 2nd line, led by Hauk’s 10 points, is the lone bright spot in an otherwise dismal performance. Despite scoring a lot of points, Rasputin’s run and gun all-out-offence routinely falls prey to disciplined and organized defensive teams playing “playoff hockey”. In the post-season debrief, Alexander acknowledges the concerns and reaffirms that, with two 1st place finishes under their belt, the Black Devils’ focus now shifts to the Golden Cup.
  10. And we are back. _________________________________ Season 8: GHL 1st place: 48-3-4-25 I The off-season is eerily quiet at the state-of-the-art Vermilion Park facilities. The price for Coronado is Vermilion sitting out the Season 8 draft, one of the best in recent memory. While the draft is deep, it is at the top where the true talent lies. Chosen 1st by Medicine Hat is superstar sniper C Dieter Hauk, coming off a 158 point, 89 goal season in the German junior league. Brash, outspoken, and flashy, Hauk is one of the most hyped prospects to ever enter the GHL and joins an ambitious and fast-moving project at Medicine Hat. Not far behind him in hype, chosen 2nd by Natashquan, is Russian two-way D-man Yury Nizamutdinov. Powerful, versatile, athletic, and owner of a feared mean streak, Nizamutdinov is a SKA St. Petersburg product that has had success at every level, and is immediately able to become a cornerstone for any team that drafts him. With no picks, Rasputin shows up at the draft, cheers fellow countryman Nizamutdinov, offers the top 3 picks a swig from his flask, and drives away. The Black Devils do make their seasonal splash by picking up the 3rd overall pick from the previous draft, powerforward Matis Howell, from relegating Mount Erie Ravens, for a 1st rounger and secondary assets - Rasputin’s calling card big offseason deal. As the offseason continues, groups of wandering Black Devils fans sit on the bleachers and in hallways, looking for their team. But they are nowhere to be found. It isn’t until an RCMP report of a bewildered hiker stumbling upon what he called “a group of large sweaty men performing some kind of Satanic ritual” that the truth comes out. Via bad cellphone video, Rasputin makes a public statement. The Devils are training in the wilderness this month, in the great Canadian forests and mountains bordering Alberta and British Columbia. Swarms of reporters attempt to get paradropped or ATVed into the location, but it is so deep and remote, that most turn back or have to be rescued by the RCMP - who are taking this whole operation with noted Canadian good humour. One intrepid reporter DOES manage to approach the training site and snaps a few photos and grainy video, before he is caught by Monciau-Desormeaux and made to chug vodka and do pushups, to earn his stay. The photos show a regimen looking like a mix between “Rocky” and Shaolin monk training, with players chopping and carrying massive trunks of trees, building, dismantling, and rebuilding wooden exercise structures, free-climbing, and wrestling over hot coals. The Devils’ player insurance representatives and the player association nearly have heart attacks, but a few quick discussions with the player placate them - for now. Whatever Rasputin is doing - it’s working. “I call it Kiev-style training,” drawls Alexander over static, as grainy video behind him shows goaltender Juris Alenin fending off the Devils 1st line with a massive cedar log. “It’s Old Russian. There are wild men like him (pointing over his shoulder at Alenin, who deftly smacks Gadsby to the ground) who have kept the training traditions of our ancestors, Novgorod varyags, for a thousand years. All natural, organic, no GMO - you can quote me on that”, he grins. Vermilion starts the season with the now expected bulldozing of the opposition, winning 9 of 11 and outscoring the opponents 43-22. The first line of Gadsby/Monciau-Desormeaux/Stuk is flying, the physical playing style of the two big powerforwards complimented by the creative Canadian centre, who forms a lethal playmaking partnership with Swedish offensive d-man Drougge. The Devils first 5 are dominant in the offensive zone, with Drougge dishing out sniper-rifle breakout passes to either Gadsby or Monciau-D, both elite skaters and playmakers. They beat oncoming defenders with ease, Gadsby often with his favoured spin move, and set each other up for open-net goals, with Czech gargoyle Stuk providing the net-front presence and cleaning up rebounds. The 1st line’s Corsi exceeds 60% during this first stretch, and they are virtually unplayable. The well-rounded training regimen shows on the ice, as the Vermilion squad is leaner, faster, but also more physically resilient, not bending under the pressure. The lineup is tough and hits at every available opportunity, wearing down the opposition quickly, then turning on the skill. Drilled by Rasputin and Bure into his players is an aggressive 2-1-2 forecheck, with fast and physical forwards attacking the puck-carrying opponent d-men at every opportunity, smashing them behind the net, and eliminating both breakout options. But, predictably, Rasputin doesn’t rest on his laurels. He paces in his cabin of black wood, in the wilderness beyond Vermilion, and takes Bure, Monciau-D, and Drougge on midnight drives on Canadian steppe highways, generating plans on how to elevate the team. A story floats up from the back pages of a backwater publication, then is picked up by the hockey world media everywhere. “Black Hauk?” reads the title, with a grainy image of Dieter Hauk, the superstar rookie, downing vodka from Rasputin’s Soviet Army flask. Medicine Hat immediately issues a press release calling the story clearly fake and planted, denying any rumours and reiterating that Hauk is the centrepiece of the team, and will be a career Cougar. But shadows of doubt remain. On the surface, surely, this is a non-story. But IF any GM would make a move this bold, IF any GM can be as arrogant as to attempt to unsettle a #1 draft pick in his first, already successful season, it would be Rasputin. What will it take to pry perhaps the hottest commodity in hockey away from one of its top teams? Analysts jump on the story, speculating wildly. Without a doubt, for a deal to be made, the price is not up to the resources of most teams, short of blowing up the squad. Black Devils fans and media are equal parts intrigued and concerned. The team is continuing its domination, 1st in the conference once again with a 14-3-2-6 record, and the continuous, incredible progress of the Black Devils could be sabotaged by a megadeal. Complicating matters is Hauk himself. Asked in a post-game interview about the rumours surrounding him, he simply grins and winks before walking off into the dressing room. It is the last game he plays for Medicine Hat.
  11. 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.
  12. END OF SEASON UPDATE: 1) Elouan Scott - (94 F): Ovechkin + Gretzky trophies (Goals, Points*), Most shots* Close, but went cold in the last 3 games to finish just off in both key categories. 2) Simon-Delorme - (92 D): Most Points by a Defenceman, Highest +/- Not even close. Hugely disappointing season on a top offensive team. Questioning his necessity to this squad, and may be moving on next season. 3) Henry Lux - (86 F (rookie)): Most Rookie Points Likely would have got this without the injury that sidelined him for 8 games. Still, hugely impressive debut campaign with limited ice time and often in a defensive role. 41 points, +16, nearly 60% CF. 4) D Sharshin, D Nazarov, F Patrushev, C Stalin, C Putin 100 combined points by Russian players DONE. 158 points total. 4a) At least 1 goal scored + assisted by ONLY Russian players 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.
  13. Sure - I have plenty of content already on here and planning to write more.
