We lost the friendly 3 to 2. Their goalie was outstanding.

I sure as hell didn't. I wanted you out so you'd be ready for the insane crop we have coming up for the 39/40 seasons. Where the lands will flow with milk and honey and 50 XP players with 120+ AI.

Two really strong pulls for Raleigh this week.

96Q/65P - 19 YO with 114 AI -1 loyalty. 24 DF - 21 PA - 50 SP - 19 STR

Looks like a decent offensive defenseman shell but the speed is a bit wasted. I don't think he'll be useful to the U20 team this year, but a nice pull nonetheless. Sucks about the loyalty.

93Q/82P - 18 YO with 79 AI +1 loyalty. 33 OFF - 9 SHO - 21 SP - 13 STR

Would have liked a +3 for a MAX - 1 pull with 93Q, but can't really complain about the spread. Fairly low AI compared to what he was showing in my YS which was 93 which would have been insane, but you can't complain with this kind of pull. He was also showing 90P. Not sure if I should sell him as I am a trainer team for U20 for the USA now and he's off year, but that's a debate for another day I suppose. Looks like a strong center build in the making here.

Overall, a pretty solid day for my YS.

Maybe this is not the perfect pull, but considering I was going to have to spend a decent amount of money to get a decent backup goalie this works perfectly for me.



His potential could be better, but besides that this is another excellent player to pull from my youth school. He'll most likely be the backup until he is 19 so he can have pretty good stats when he takes the reins since I actually have a great chance to stay up this season.

Didn't realize you posted here either until just now. Guess the post a week or two ago about how I'd easily win the IV.5 playoff final against you was seen after all. Yeah, we are playing each other tomorrow so it should be an interesting game.

Have to ask, since I'm curious about this, what makes a team become a trainer team for a U20 squad? Is it more just having a certain amount of great youth players, or is it something else I'm not aware of? Not saying I would do that but having some U-21 coaching experience for another game I never heard that mentioned to me.

It is a fairly new process and nothing incredibly formal other than a way to compete with other countries that have superior systems in regards to developing talent. For quite a while now, American teams have been highly reluctant to give 17 YO players the proper amount of time on ice required to get their experience up into the 50+ range and above by the time team selection time came. Players at 19 years old were coming into the team with somewhat adequate AI but FAR .... FAR below average experience which totally derails the entire squad. Before Mallard took over U20 and brought us back to respectability last season, we were losing games to nations that we should have never been losing to considering the amount of talent we have to select from.

What my team is centric on now, and a few others have done the same thing, is selling off my entire team and purchasing high profile 17 year old players to get them 1st line, 1st unit PP and PK time in order to better prepare them for the U20's like other countries have done. In essence, I have sacrificed my immediate ability to compete in order to make sure that the US is more adequately represented 2 seasons from now when the time comes for U20 selections. I only have 1 player right now that is a lock, essentially, for the U20 in the future but with the money I have gained from gutting my team, any worthy candidate will be purchased and placed into my lineup. There are several of these "feeder clubs", that are doing the same thing so we should have a very effective group in the future.

Well, in a shocker, I pulled two 90+Q players today. One of them is unfortunately max-4 and I'm gonna sell him. The other, I have to wait until tomorrow to scout, but he's a 19 year old with 114 AI and 93Q showing ?68P and ?- loyalty. I'm out of boosts for this year, otherwise he'd be 126 AI.
