Season 20 General Chat

Recommended Posts

So I start my 2nd season......I'm actually glad I got relegated here's why ....my first season was a learning season learning the site and how it all works. I inherited a team with a bunch of 1W contracts. I now have a basic understanding of how the site works and I have a team staring from scratch that I have put together....... GHL here I come lol

Baden, building a team from complete scratch is honestly pretty fun and a really good experience. It also makes changing tactics and building your team how you want to build it a lot easier. I joined a team that got relegated and had almost nothing left my first season and I dominated and got first place. Best of luck in regards to that!

 

My pre-season has been quite fantastic after a crappy draft situation. I got a replacement for my first line center, signed three of my prospects, and have enough good backups to survive any injuries. I'm excited for the new season and really hoping this is the team to take me to the GHL.

After a disappointing and humiliating relegation process, the Cherokees are adjusting to life in the IHL. The team struggled to ice a full squad by opening night, and proceeded to play as such, losing the 1st 3 contests of the new season spectacularly. Game 4 appeared to be a lost cause when, after 1 period, the team found themselves down 1-5 to the Disraeli Black Bears. The 5 goal comeback that ensued has sparked the team to a 5-0-2-2 record since dropping their 1st 3 games as the team continues to gel. The addition of some veteran role players to compliment the young core of the team seems to be paying off. Hopefully we can continue to win some games and resigning players won't be a huge issue in the offseason.

Well, less than 20 games in and I've already flirted with 15th place in my first SHL season. But after the last 10 games where we've posted a respectable 5-1-0-4 record, we sit 7th. I feel a bit better about the team, such that it is. Certainly need a few seasons to fully adapt the lineup. Just hoping to keep above the relegation line!

 

My next challenge: the big, bad , Savage Storm. 

*Boooooo*

 

Will the 'Wolves make it past the early-season juggernaut, having just lost their #1 D to a week-long concussion? Will the Storm flatten the visiting team on their way to a nigh-impossible 15-1-1-1 record? Tune your radio to C-SHL900 to hear all the bone-crushing action!

If I get this response 

 

PLAYER RESPONSE

I have no intention to discuss a contract with you - what so ever

 

Should I try to trade him? If he's not ever gonna resign should I try to get players or picks? He is a big reason we are doing so well.and if there is a chane to resign I will.

 

Noah James Gamelin OVR 77    any advice would be appreciated.  :)

IMO, I would try to trade him. When I was in LIHL, I traded any of these types of players to IHL teams for players with long term contracts. If you get back a player with only a year chances are he won't sign with you either. When I got promoted, I was even able to sign a few of those guys I traded away when the team I traded with let them go.

I managed to Trade my holdout 78 for a 72 with a 3 yr contract...and he already has made a positive impact.Also I decided to sign an 18 yr old free agent and sent him to the minors to see how he develops. I also signed a guy last year who is an up and comer who is not getting any Ice this season.. sent him to minors... I really like the affiliated team idea.

Huh. There's a team in BHL that is choosing to scratch all of its higher level players (even one that is 84ovr), and play its lesser-skilled players. Funny.

 

And it is being GM'd by a rookie who has played a total of 37 games... over 5 seasons!

 

Can we call bullsh1t?

That in itself is not enough to make any judgement call. 

There are 5 games left in Clapper S20.    If their position in the standings is already established, they could simply be trying-out some prospects, to see how they handle some serious playing time. 

 

Have done it many-many times.  Will usually look at player stats around 55-58 games into the season, and then play any player that is at 0 GP.  Because 0 GP is ugly on a player-card, and also sad in a lonely puppy kind of way.

Wow! About 5 different BHL teams and one SHL team turned over today! Including the dude with 5 seasons and 37 games played. Cool. He should have waited a little longer, he could have benefited from the 84ovr trade that occurred right afterwards... Crazy

Hopping for sure, and that's all good.

 

Multiple accounts is hard to say, but given the circumstances, highly likely. But hey, I'm trying to play nice, play right, and that's all that matters :)

 

Go Wolves!

I'll likely be playing in the GHL relegation playoffs after finishing 13th for the second straight season.  It started out well, as we reached as high as 3rd place about 1/3 of the way through, but all my old guys dropped off the map, and I was left with no stars at forward or center and it all wend downhill.  We have a good, young core, but I'll have to do some serious signing and re-tooling if we play our way back into the GHL for next season.
