That just isn't true. I'm in 1st, that is true. I also beat Dallas and Colorado, two of the best teams in the West. I'm doing better than last year strictly because I worked at it and got better at the game.

Fun fact:

2-0 vs West (1.000 winning percentage)
5-1 vs East ( .833 winning percentage)

Both times I played you, both games were close (and that was when I sucked). I'm hoping my improvements will be enough to get over the hump.

Usually in the western playoff race is much tighter, and it usually takes more wins and points to earn a playoff spot in the west, therefor making it a tougher conference to win.

No double advance tonight boys. The 1st period was only 1 week long (mistake on my part). Double Advance will be Sunday night though for sure.

Our game shouldn't have counted in this stat... it was my first game in over a week and I wasn't even warmed up!

Oh man, the All Star Break is a) going to actually exist in our league and b) be a lot of fun!

Here's what i'm thinking...

-Top 6 teams from each Conference make it. Right now that would be...

West:

Vancouver, Chicago, Detroit, Minnesota, St. Louis, San Jose

East:

Islanders, Islanders, Islanders....kidding

Islanders, Washington, Sabres, Jets, Devils, and Bolts

-We'll do an OTP game (has to be ranked or else we cant use our BAPs) in a specific Lobby (Bluth ASG or something)

-Decide who is going to play what position on each team

-From your position, you choose the best guy on your GM Connected Team and model your BAP after him i.e. Change his name, jersey number, appearance, height, weight, and play by play name to reflect the real player.

Example: In the West the Lineup could look like...

Mursak-Sedin-Couture
Keith-Pietrangelo
Niemi

This way, it looks like an actual All-Star game that we actually get to play.

-As far as the shootout goes we can just do essentially a playoff, using the actual seeds at the given time but using the top 8 teams.

Example:

1) Vancouver vs 8) Carolina
1) Islanders vs 8) Edmonton
2) Chicago vs 7) Ottawa
2) Washington vs 7) Colorado
3) San Jose vs 6) Tampa
3) Buffalo vs 6) St. Louis
4) Detroit vs 5) New Jersey
4) Winnipeg vs 5) Minnesota

...and then since its a shootout, it should go by really fast and still be pretty fun. Just use your GM Connected Teams and go into online shootout.

I dunno guys, should be a pretty cool All Star Break for the league.

A popularity contest haha.

I like the All-Star idea, the only thing is I'm assuming not all of our BAP are that great. I myself am only a rookie at the moment.

Voting would be cool as well, but in all honesty I think you guys should just do an OTP game with the all star teams if it is possible.

I think it should be the players.. those who have the top 6 in points in each conference at each position..

This sounds like a lot of fun. this works in a perfect world but odds are that not all 12 ppl will be available at the same time. I'm thinking if someone can't make it then the 7 seed gets in, etc.

you could just make a thread with a Poll in it for each division.. does the counting for you.

Each GM in the top 8 of each conference nominates one player from their team.
That player gets added to the poll
Everyone votes. GMs cannot vote for their own player.

Top 5 players get into the allstar game..
The top GAA goalie in each conference gets into the allstar game.

Nahhh don't like the idea of changing your guy...
Should just be top 6 teams get in all start game.
#1 seed gets to choose their position first and so on... Simple.
No voting. The voting might get skewed like in real life lol.

GM here.

I told you guys that I would be around this evening but something came up, and by something came up I totally mean I am going to play poker and get drunk.

So,if you are the GM of Winnipeg, Philly or Phoenix and you see this go ahead and play my cpu. Sorry I won't be on boys, especially Jets and Yotes who I was talking to yesterday.
