Finding a hard time deciding which is the "Strongest" Division in our league. Being MY Division, obviously a little biased towards the Central. STL is 14-1 going back to last season lol. Columbus is NOT finishing last this year. Chicago was one of the best Regular Season teams all year long. Detroit made it to the Finals, and Nashville has beaten me plenty of times already.

If Tampa and Florida turn out to be really good at this game then the South East might be the toughest though.

Yes, I've made all my offers.

I'm in agreement with the new guidelines you posted Fuss, my only issue is one of my AHLers (Scott Gomez) makes 7.5M and it's ridiculous to have that count against my cap.

Also, that's a sick header Sub. I'm itching to start a Facebook group for this league...

Sorry for causing headaches this offseason fellas.

lost another heartbreaker, this time shots were 28-9 in favor of me but I couldn't do anything about it.

Very demoralizing start for NJ so far. 0-1-1

That's kind of the issue you take on when you pick your team. You have to deal with the contracts you're dealt, no matter how bad they are. That being said, both the contracts of Gomez and Wade Redden are up after the year, so perhaps the 2 worst contracts in all of hockey will no longer be an issue.

Pacific division obviously

I do think the division as a whole will be a lot better this year. I know my line-up has improved tremendously.

I think that just solidified this as THE best league on the forums.

oh derp. I was still thinking about real life, where Gomez has 2 years left. Gomez and Gionta coming off the books this summer

I was a little cheesed when I saw that Price had regressed 2 to an 88, but Fleury dropped to an 85?? Even Vokoun's better? Ouch. Hopefully both MAF and CP will rebound.

Just beat Pittsburgh 3-1, Vinny with his first point as a Hab and Gio with a pair. Rafael MFin Diaz is leading the Habs in points. Galchenyuk also got his first NHL point (an assist) he is going to be so fun to play with next season, his OVR is still just 63 but all the essentials are there.

That was a tough loss for me and I can't wait for Nash on my 2nd line because I need some more explosiveness there. Fleury dropping to an 85 was really rough for me to swallow and it showed in our game, I even pulled him halfway through the 2nd.

Not if Price has anything to do with it. 0.97GAA (ignore the fact that it's only been two games )

I can't really talk highly of the Atlantic Division, Flyers and Islanders missed last season and I know me personally, I joined in after the deadline. Rangers, Devils, Penguins all made playoffs. Penguins actually fended off the Flyers for a seed in the postseason. We are definitely in the middle. After all, new Flyers GM could turn heads. Looking forward to the beginning of the Bluth Company.

Its really gonna depend on how well my defense does. Its really really young. So...mason would have to play outta his mind. And his only bad stat is poise...

I agree, this league is very deep and there are alot of very committed, skilled GMs. Having said that, if is for real, then I still think we have the deepest division

Once I get Weber and Subban on my team my d will be great, rest of the D played well in the 2 games without them.

Also looking forward to the advance so I can recover Palushaj, White, Geoffrion goalie depth and maybe even a couple UFAs I sent offers to...

Sabres 6
Senators 1

All three rookies Armia psysk grigorenko scored in this game.
Vanek 1 goal 2 assists


Strongest division is southeast. Followed by Central. Northwest up there too.

Led in shots and won all but two faceoffs, yet I couldn't score. At least I ruined Miller's shutout. Lehner was a piece of s*** that game.

Can you wait for my Nash trade to go through? I don't want to be a pain in the ass or hold up the league but I really need that trade to go through.
