I could potentially trade for Kane from Winnipeg in my Be-A-GM. Deal would be roughly;

Goligoski
Frattin
Bozak/Grabovski

Probably add something but I think I'd be weak at center so might do it at the draft and then get a 2nd C in free agency so it'd be Zajac-2ND C-Grabovski/Bozak-Kadri/McClement

How good does Seth Jones get? I drafted him but traded him away and a 2nd rounder for OEL.

DISAPPOINTING SEASON COMES TO AN END FOR BLUE JACKETS
April 12, 2018

The Columbus Blue Jackets will miss the playoffs for the first time in 3 years, falling 4 points short of the 8th place Edmonton Oilers. Columbus, coming off a season in which they were the top team in the Western Conference during the regular season, had high hopes of pushing further in the playoffs, but perhaps the expectations got the better of them.

"We'll have to do a post-mortem and examine where we need to make changes to improve for next season," GM Mackenzie stated. "It's certainly not the way we thought this season would go."

James Wisniewski's struggles continued as the highly-paid defensemen only managed 19 points for the second consecutive year. Wisniewski missed 30 games last season with a knee injury and he has yet to regain his previous form. The Blue Jackets are hopeful that the 34-year-old will be able to gain his strength back in that knee during the extended offseason.

Steve Mason, the backup goaltender for the Blue Jackets, bore much criticism after yielding extremely poor statistics after returning from an injury early in the season. Mason only managed an 89.3 SV% and a bloated 3.25 GAA en route to a 9-14-2 record on the year.

"I'm not sure what happened with Steve [Mason] this year," said GM Mackenzie. "We know he's capable of playing better than he did, so we'll just have to figure out the reasons why over the next few weeks."

Starting goaltender, Sergei Bobrovsky, continued his stellar play this year, one of the few highlights for the team. The Russian netminder managed to stop 92.9% of the shots he faced, allowed 2.19 goals per 60 minutes of play, and posted a 25-18-11 record on the year, giving Columbus a chance to win almost every night he started.

Lol wtf.. this games so messed. Just had Ovechkin have a 50 goal year and apparently Jeff Skinner wins the Rocket with 39 goals? Okay EA.. Also tied Kucherov for points with 87 but had like 30 more goals, yet he wins the Art Ross? Isn't the guy with more goals supposed to win it if theres a tie..?

I hate when you try and rebuild, but your crappy team somehow manages to make playoffs and screws up the plan. For example, my 2012-13 Calgary Flames, who I expected to bring me a top 5 pick. How the heck does this roster finish 44-29-9 for 5th in the West?

C. Glencross TWF 82 - A. Loktionov PLY 78 - T. Selanne SNP 82

P. Elias SNP 82 - M. Backlund PLY 77 - L. Stempniak TWF 80

R. Cervenka SNP 76 - M. Stajan TWF 82 - R. Reaves GRN 74

A. Frolov SNP 75 - S. Pahlsson GRN 75 - M. Bradley GRN 74

D. Didiomete TGH 61



M. Giordano OFD 85 - S. Robidas DFD 82

L. Sbisa TWD 84 - M. Zidlicky OFD 80

C. Butler DFD 78 - T. Brodie OFD 74

N. Petrecki DFD 73



T. Thomas STD 86

K. Ramo BUT 69



I used this from start to finish ( all games simmed other than me losing the home opener 1-0). I started with Joe Corvo on the third pairing but dealt him for a prospect and called up Brodie. Everything else stayed the same all season and somehow this team is a contender in the West.

It's likely because of Thomas. Put a crappy goalie on that team and they likely won't do well.

PEI Rocket Getting Fresh Start
The PEI Rocket of the QMJHL are getting a fresh start. After rotting out under the Savard family, barely getting 2000 fans a night, the team has new owners. Rumours have Grant Sonier, and a few others buying the team. "Yes. It's true. My group and I have bought the Rocket. We have a lot of changes ahead, including a literal restart of the franchise. All of the staff's contracts have been bought out, and we are releasing all of our players. We will receive compensation later this summer." Sonier also hinted at when he'll be hiring his new staff, "We'll be hiring our new staff in the very near future, possibly this week." The last thing he touched on was making it more of an Island team. "We are going to make this team popular over the whole Island. Our training camp and intersquad games will be held in Souris, and our exhibition games in Tignish. Our home rink is still the Charlottetown Civic Center, but we'll also play a couple weekend sets at the Credit Union Place in Summerside." This news certainly opened a lot of eyes. The team now has 0 players, heading into the draft early next month.

All Islander Staff Hired

An all Islander staff has been hired to the PEI Rocket. The team's newest head coach is Forbes MacPherson, from the UPEI Panthers. His assistants will be Connor Cameron, formerly of Rouyn-Noranda, and Doug Shepherd, who is a former pro, and a well known hockey mind across PEI. The new GM is Doug MacLean, who's spent time as an NHL GM, and the new head scout is Kris MacPhee, who was the PEI scout for the Saint John Sea Dogs. "For me, it's going to be great." said MacPherson. "We've watched this team struggle for the last 10 years, and now we have the opportunity to give Islanders what they deserve. I'm excited, that's for sure." "I agree with Forbes here. We're going to help make this team grow, and help them establish an identity in this league." said Cameron. Shepherd added, "We aren't just going to be trying to fill the rink next year either, we're going to try to win it all. We clearly have a lot of work ahead of us, but we think we can definitely do it." MacLean, the GM, touched on what kind of players they want on the team. "We want character players. Nothing more, nothing less. If you aren't willing to block that shot, or drop the gloves in spite of your defence partner getting hit from behind, it's probably not the place to play. We're going to bring an exciting brand of hockey this year, and it's going to be fun to watch." Head Scout Kris MacPhee touched on this year's draft, "There are a few highly touted Islanders in the draft this year, and we are going to try our best to snag a few of them." The draft is coming up soon, but a preview will be before that.

^ Nice write-up!

Anyways, thought I'd share my Be a Gm Mode with you guys. I'm in my 5th year of my GM mode (15 years in total). I substituted 5 NHL teams: Nashville Predators, Phoenix Coyotes, Carolina Hurricanes, Tampa Bay Lightning, and the Columbus Blue Jackets. I replaced them with five new teams: Regina Aces, Quebec City Neptunes, Milwaukee Ramparts, Sc Bern, and the HC Davos. The HC Davos and SC Bern are from the Swiss hockey league, while the Phoenix Coyotes moved to Quebec. The Regina Aces and the Milwaukee Ramparts, however, are special. Both are expansion teams, so they were filled with all FA's (all bad FA's, mind you). I chose to manage the Regina Aces.

Some more background info on the Regina Aces:

In the 2012 draft, the Regina Aces drafted 3rd overall, drafting Seth Jones. In the 2013 draft, they went 9th overall, selecting Matt Belesky. In the 2014 draft, went 4th overall and selected Joshua Ho-Sang, and in the 2015 draft, they traded up (from 12th to 1st overall) and selected franchise center Connor McDavid. I also had the Canucks 1st rounder, so I drafted Dmitri Derlyuk (steal IMO)

During the 2015-2016 season, I traded defenseman Seth Jones, a 2nd rounder, and prospect Daniel Audette to the Quebec Neptunes for Oliver-Ekman-Larsson. This past offseason (2016-2017), I traded 1st rounder (13 overall), Fred Hughman and a 2018 1st round draft pick to the Boston Bruins for blue-chip defenseman, Kalle Backlund. This will set my defense up for years to come.


Now, here we are, starting the 2017-2018 season. Here are the lines for the Regina Aces:

Glencross(81)-McDavid(86)-Purcell(81)
*Belesky(79)-Derlyuk(81)-Ho-Sang(76)
Hagelin(80)-R.White(78)-Tootoo(77)
Eaves(77)- Comper(80)-D.Miller(78)

Ekman-Larsson(87)-Jorges(83)
*Backlund(75)-Ellis(81)
Sieloff(81)-Lehtivori(81)

Rask(83)
*Koltsov(79)

*rookie

Home Grown Talent in Lineup (drafted by Aces):

1. Connor McDavid 4.5 Stars 19yrs old
2. Dmitry Derlyuk 4.5 Stars 21 yrs old
3. Warren Belesky 3.5 Stars 21 yrs old
4. Koltsov 3.5 stars 21 years old


Prospects:

1. Nikita Zadorov 3.5 Stars DFD 65OVR 21 yrs
2. Nicklas Lunqvist 3.5 Stars GRN C 61OVR 20yrs
3. Spike Petry 3.5 Stars RW TWF RW 60OVR 21 yrs
4. Matthew Hoffman 3.5 Stars TGH LW 39OVR 19yrs
5. Ned Larman 2.5 Stars DFD 59OVR 19 yrs
6. Colin Shirley 2.5 Stars SNP LW 52OVR 19yrs


Other information:

* In the 1st offseason, I allowed myself to give a contract to a player who was 86+OVR. I decdided to sign goalie Nicklas Backstrom, was was an 87 at the time.
* Since then, I am not allowed to sing a player 83+OVR. I feel that the key part to team success is building through the draft and trades.
* This past trade deadline (2016-2017 TD), I traded away Backstrom and a 2018 3rd for Tuukka Rask.
* I drafted Sebastian Koltsov in the 2016 draft.

Draft Day

It's draft day here in Quebec City, and the Rocket's draft table is stirring. Already there's a rumour that the 2nd overall pick is available, and the Rocket are looking to trade down. "We're exploring all options right now. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but we're working on a deal." said GM Doug Maclean.

A deal has been done. The Rocket traded the second overall pick, and their third rounder (39) to Rimouski for Island-born defenceman Ryan Mackinnon, the 12th overall pick, and the 22nd overall pick. "This is a deal we're proud to get done. We've already brought in an Islander, and a good one at that. Ryan's a solid defenceman and he's happy to be playing at home next season." said GM Doug Maclean.

When it was finally time to pick, with the 12th overall selection, Grant Sonier (owner), Doug MacLean (GM), Kris MacPhee (Head Scout), and Forbes MacPherson (Head Coach) went up to the stage to make the pick. MacLean made the pick. "With the 12th overall selection in this year's draft, the PEI Rocket are proud to select, from St-Eustache, d-man Carl Neill!" The crowd erupted as Neill made his way up to the stage. He shook hands with the staff members, before putting on his Rocket jersey. "I am very excited. I am one of the first new Rocket players and it feels great. I can't wait for training camp!" Carl told the media. Head scout Kris MacPhee explained what type of player he is. "He's going to be a great player in this league, and we think he'll play in the NHL one day. He is more of an offensive player, but isn't a liability defensively either. He is going to have every opportunity to make the team next year, but if he doesn't, he'll develop nicely in junior A or midget."

The Rocket didn't pick again until the second round, where they hold picks 20 and 22. In the second round and following rounds, players don't go up to the stage, they just meet the team at the draft table. With those picks the Rocket selected Charlottetown Islanders duo Kameron Kielly, and Alex Gallant. "Both of these boys are going to be the faces of the franchise, when they develop. Two Island boys, who have great chemistry together. Kielly is the playmaker and Gallant is the scorer. They both have a shot at making the team next year, and it's likely they will but anything can happen." Kris MacPhee told the media.

The Rocket didn't pick again until the fourth round, where they selected forward Matthew Cusson. In the fifth round they picked Island born defenseman Michael White, and in the sixth forward Liam Alcalde. "Cusson is a speedy winger, with a solid scoring touch. He should be a good player in this league when his time is right. White is an offensive guy, and has great hands. Alcalde is a train, and will be able to run anyone over when he gets into the league. We're excited about all of these guys." said MacPhee.

In the seventh the Rocket selected forward Vimal Sukumaran, in the eighth Island born forward Jarred Toole, in the ninth d-man Guillaume Rioux-Legault, in the tenth forward Justin Dickinson, in the eleventh d-man Mathieu Leclerc. PEI also drafted forward Zach Beaton, who's an Islander, in the 12th round, and in the 13th and 14th American defenseman Connor Light, and American goaltender Curtis Frye. "With these players, we added some competitiveness to training camp. As for the Americans, they aren't expected to report, but if they do, they'll be welcome additions to the line-up." MacPhee said.

PEI replenished the cupboards in their first draft with new management. "We're very happy." said head coach Forbes MacPherson. "We couldn't of hoped for a better result."

The CHL Euro Draft has been completed, and the PEI Rocket have added two new faces. 6'7" German defenseman Oliver Mebus, and Swedish defenseman Calle Andersson were drafted by the Rocket. "These two guys are going to be integral to our success here on the Island and we're glad to be able to draft them." said GM Doug MacLean.

L. Sbisa TWD 84 - M. Zidlicky OFD 80

C. Butler DFD 78 - T. Brodie OFD 74

N. Petrecki DFD 73



T. Thomas STD 86

K. Ramo BUT 69



I used this from start to finish ( all games simmed other than me losing the home opener 1-0). I started with Joe Corvo on the third pairing but dealt him for a prospect and called up Brodie. Everything else stayed the same all season and somehow this team is a contender in the West.
Your D and G are more than adequate.

20s signed, Americans intend to report
20 year old forwards Vincent Arseneau and Steve Lebel, along with defenseman Sawyer Hannay have signed in Prince Edward Island. "These three guys all bring what puts fans in the seats, toughness. All three can throw with the best of them, and can play as well." said GM Doug MacLean.

Assistant coach Connor Cameron has been working hard since the draft to ensure that the American born players who were drafted, Connor Light, and Curtis Frye, come to training camp. Curtis Frye tweeted earlier this morning saying: "Can't wait 'til August @CLight2 #rocketcamp #pumped" That sounds like they're coming to me. For now, the upcoming season definitely looks to be shaping up well for the revamped squad.

This game is such a joke. Just had Mackinnon have a year where he had 62 giveaways and 155 takeaways, 47% on the draw, +11 and 66 points.. He was by far and away the leader for takeaways and I figured he'd have the Selke locked up... Nope. Ryan Getzlaf comes along and wins the Selke with his 70 giveaways and 61 takeaways, 59% on the draw, to go alongside a nice -10 and 55 points..

Just completed a steal trade I think.



Evander Kane
Bryan Little
Zach Redmond



Alex Goligoski
Stuart Percy
Kenny Ryan

- Thoughts? Line-up is now;

JvR (88) - Zajac (84) - Kessel (86)
Lupul (84) - Little (84) - Kane (84)
MacArthur (81) - Bozak (80) - Frattin (83)
McClement (77) - Kadri (79) - Fehr (79)

Phaneuf (90) - Gunnarsson (85)
Franson (85) - Gardiner (85)
Redmond (77) - Morrow (76)

Reimer (83)
Greiss (78)

Not 100% on the bottom line values. Might trade one of my top 4 when/if Morrow or Reilly become top 4 material. Looking to trade Grabovski and I also have Tarasenko on the side-lines as I can't figure out where to put him. I could trade him as well but I like him so Frattin could be available.

Looking for some prospects. One player on my radar is Eric Gudranson from Florida.

^^ For lines, I would do this

JVR-Zajac-Kessel
Lupul-Little-Kadri
Kane-Bozak-Frattin
MacArthur-McClemment-Fehr

Thats if you play the games, because it gives you a more balanced attack, so you can roll the lines more

Rioux-Legault wins it for Team Orange

Rookie d-man Guillaume Rioux-Legault's goal with 3:27 left in the third won the game for Team Orange. The final score was 4-3. Team Orange goaltender Francis Desrosiers kicked out 20 saves, and Navy's Curtis Frye had 20 as well. Goalscorers for Team Orange were Rioux-Legault, Antoine Masson, with two, and Jarred Toole. Scorers on Navy were defencemen Sawyer Hannay, Mathieu Leclerc, and Cameron McDonald. Rioux-Legault says it was lucky, "I normally don't score goals, but it felt great to get one. I got lots of icetime and I hope I make the team. The fans of Souris were great, thank you." Fans were also treated to a spirited tilt between heavyweight rookies Zach Beaton and Justin Dickinson. Edge to Dickinson. Head coach Forbes MacPherson likes what he sees so far. "There's a lot of competitiveness out there. It's going to be a battle all year long, and by the looks of things, the battle has already begun." Next game is in 2 days.
