Sweet Carolina




In the past three seasons, the Florida Panthers played 6 playoff series. Three of them went to 7 games. Up against the Carolina Hurricanes in round one of the 2016 playoffs, the Panthers went the distance again. They were victorious again, too.


The series was very frustrating for Panthers fans, however. Their team got shutout twice, and won in overtime twice as well. Game 4 went all the way into double overtime, before Quinton Howden finally ended it. Facing elimination in game six, the Panthers found themselves in a 2-0 hole after the first period. They fought back to tie the game and would eventually win in overtime off a goal by Nick Bjugstad. Finally the Panthers were able to dominate Carolina in game seven, with a 3-0 victory.



Game 1: 3-0 Hurricanes Win
Game 2: 3-1 Panthers Win
Game 3: 3-0 Hurricanes Win
Game 4: 2-1 2OT Panthers Win
(Howden scored GWG)

Game 5: 4-2 Hurricanes Win
Game 6: 3-2 OT Panthers Win
(Bjugstad scored GWG)
Game 7: 3-0 Panthers Win



Another divisional rival awaits Florida in round two - the 2nd seeded Tampa Bay Lightning.

Well we did have a great regular season this year, so we are a good team. But it is strange how things have gone our way in the playoffs so far, previous years included. We're not THAT good.

Offseason Almost Ends in Shambles for Sharks
The Mercury News
September 23, 2013

Not having enough cap space to sign key players, Jason Demers and James Shepard holding out, the lineup not being good enough for opening day; those were some of the problems that led to a train-wreck of an offseason for GM Flamesrule.

After selecting Josh Morrissey 25th overall in the 2013 draft, GM Flamesrule had many things on his agenda; the first of those was to re-sign most, if not all, of the players in the Sharks organization. Some of these big names included Scott Gomez, James Shepard, Jason Demers, and Alex Stalock. Things like this should be an easy task, right? Well, this was not the case for Flamesrule. Jason Demers (84OVR) was reportedly asking upwards of 5 million. James Shepard, who came off a mediocre season was asking for 3.5 million, which GM Flamesrule thought was too much. "I decided that these players, while good, were not living up to standards for these types of contracts. I thought I could tender these players for a one year deal and that they would accept. Unfortunately, this was not the case." Indeed, Demers and Shepard did hold out. While he himself will not admit this, the San jose Sharks were very close to they cap and could not sign them both, hence their holdout. With that said, Flamesrule was able to secure Alex Stalock, Tomas Hertle, Scott Hannan, and TJ Galiardi, to name a few. "We felt that re-signing these players were essential to one of the pieces of the puzzle", said Flamesrule. Scott Gomez was released by the team.


Scott Gomez is not longer a Shark.

T.Hertl1.565K2-Way67C
A.Stalock33.9M1-Way84G

A.Desjardins2.895K2-Way71C
S.Hannan3.1.945M1-Way78D
N.Petricki2.8650K2-Way73D


Along rolled Free Agency. The Sharks didn't make any majors additions, however, they did make some signings worth noting. Some signings included Fabian Brunnstrom, Alex Frolov, Deryk Engelland, and Pavel Valentenko. "We, as an organization, feel that our minor system needs to be better for this franchise to grow. With the additions of these players, they will be able to help out the younger players who include Tomas Hertl."

P.Valentenko1.910K2-Way77D
J.Marcou2.845K2-Way75RW
A.Richards1.925K2-Way74G


Now, let us fast forward another all the way to late August (August 25th to be exact). James Shepard and Jason Demers still have not been signed to an offer-sheet or an extension by the Sharks. Because of this, GM Flamesrule had some quick thinking to do: either wait until both re-sign, or trade away their rights. Trading their rights would be the option one would think, and that's what GM Flamesrule did. He sent Jason Demers to the Buffalo Sabres for defensive prospect Mark Pysyk. "I felt this helped both teams; one for the future and one for right now. Even with this trade, we(the Sharks) feel we are still a playoff team."

To :

Mark Pysyk (65 OVR)
2014 1st Round

To :

Jason Demers (84 OVR)
2014 2nd Round


Mark Pysyk is a new addition to the Sharks organization


There is one more player left that has a big question mark around him, and that is James Shepard. Reports have come out saying that GM has offered him a 2 year deal worth around 7 million, but Flamesrule was unwilling to deny or accept these rumors. The city of San Jose will have to wait and see.

Anyways, a new year, another season! Here is the 2013-2014 opening lineup for your San Jose Sharks:

Marleau(88)-Thornton(88)-Havlat(85)
Pavelski(85)-Couture(87)-Galiardi(79)

Ouch, that third line isn't looking great. Hopefully your top six can carry the load. Good luck!

Going The Distance... Again



Forward Nick Bjugstad celebrates a goal against the Lightning.


Once again it took the Florida Panthers all seven games, but they have advanced to the third round of the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The defending Stanley Cup Champions took as much time as possible to defeat their state rivals, the Tampa Bay Lightning. The highlights of the series for Florida include Erik Gudbranson's overtime goal in game two, and Jacob Markstrom's 37-save shutout for a 1-0 win in game five.


Game 1: 3-2 Lightning Win
Game 2: 3-2 Panthers OT Win
(Gudbranson scored GWG)

Game 3: 4-2 Lightning Win
Game 4: 4-1 Panthers Win
Game 5: 1-0 Panthers Win

Game 6: 4-1 Lightning Win
Game 7: 3-2 Panthers Win


The 1st seeded Toronto Maple Leafs are the next opponent for the Panthers.

Decided to do an experiment, started a GM mode with PHX and traded away every single forward in the organization, leaving a team just above the cap floor comprised completely of D-men. Here is my roster at the start of the 2013-14 season:

J. Schultz OFD 87 - P. Subban TWD 87 - O. Ekman-Larsson OFD 88

T. Erixon TWD 79 - D. Rundblad OFD 85 - K. Yandle OFD 86

M. Fistric DFD 80 - S. Robidas DFD 83 - M. Stone TWD 77

J. Vandermeer DFD 73 - M. Kousa TWD 74 - Y. Weber OFD 75

N. Petrecki DFD 73 - E. Gryba DFD 74




B. Gormley TWD 80 - Z. Michalek DFD 87

J. Tinordi DFD 79 - D. Morris DFD 84

R. Klesla DFD 82 - J. Ericsson DFD 77


J. Markstrom HYB 78

A. Nilsson HYB 71


Top prospects (not in NHL)

S. Jones TWD 60 4.5*
D. Nurse TWD 58 4*
D. Mcilrath DFD 69 4*
A. Clendening TWD 74 4*
C. Murphy TWD 61 4*
J. Morrissey OFD 53 4*
M. Visentin HYB 64 4*
M. Nishi HYB 50 4*

I have a boatload of 3 and 3.5 star D-men as well. My plan is to use offensive type D-men up front and the defensive types as actual d-men and bottom six filler. Top prospects are left in the AHL unless they can crack top 6 forwards or top 4 D.

Close, But Not Quite


Mikhail Grabovski rips a shot past Jacob Markstrom in game seven.


In the 2016 ECF against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Florida Panthers participated in yet another seven game series. This time, however, they didn't come out on top.


There is really not much to say about this series. The Panthers would dominate one game, and the Leafs would come back and dominate the next. It was just a hard-fought series that didn't end in Florida's favor. Even though they fell short of winning back-to-back Stanley Cups, Panthers GM Deku Scrub is happy with the season. He told the media that he was mostly impressed with this year, but a couple changes might be made this offseason.


The Toronto Maple Leafs will face the Minnesota Wild in the 2016 Stanley Cup Finals.


Game 1: 4-3 Panthers Win
Game 2: 3-2 Maple Leafs Win
Game 3: 3-2 Maple Leafs Win

Game 4: 5-3 Panthers Win
Game 5: 3-1 Maple Leafs Win
Game 6: 4-1 Panthers Win
Game 7: 4-2 Maple Leafs Win

2016-2017 Season. Got to the Cup finals last year, but lost game 7 in OT.
Tamba Bay.

Marleau (88)- Stamkos (91)- Conacher (85)
B. Connolly (78)- P. Kane (86)- Panik (83)
Q. Howden (79)- W. Karlsson (75)-J. Bailey (79)
Lecavalier (80)-Clayton (78)-Dupont (63)

Hedman (87)- Morrissey (86)
Aulie (82)-Hamilton (77)
Beaulieu (76)- Taormina (72)

Aab (83)
Lindback (78)

Almost lost Stamkos since I was banking on Lecavalier retiring. Now I have this untradeable $7.8 million contract for another year. No notable prospects either.

Heading to round 3 with my Devils against the Islanders... lost in year 1 to the Washington Capitals in round 3... so basically we're hoping for a different faith this season.

2013-14 Devils

Kovalchuk 91 - Henrique 82 - Jagr 81
Elias 83 - Zajac 84 - Semin 83
JT Miller 78 - Brule 79 - D'Agostini 80
Josefson 76 - Dom Moore 79 - Clarkson 79
*Saad 75, Tedenby 74

Tallinder 82 - Larsson 87
Gonchar 85 - Blum 84
Greene 79 - Gilroy 76
*Urbom 75

Varlamov 84 - Brodeur 82

Emptied the cupboards a little bit for Blum, Varlamov and Semin. Don't have a first round picks for the next 3 years. We do still have Zadorov, Matteau & Lazar as solid prospects though.

Next season I'll probably try to replace some of the older players... like Elias, Gonchar and Tallinder. Probably will trade Clarkson too. Will try to go with a pretty young lineup.

2016 Offseason Report

Continued from here.



Panthers At the NHL Awards



Aaron Ekblad was awarded the Calder Memorial Trophy, for being the NHL's best rookie of the 2015-16 campaign. Ekblad scored 14 goals and 41 points, while finishing with a +16 rating. That +16 was the best plus/minus rating of all rookies, and he also led all rookies in points.

Jonathan Huberdeau (85 points) was nominated for the Hart Memorial Trophy, but lost out to Henrik Zetterberg (88 points).



Retirements

Tomas Kopecky, 35 years old, decided to hang up his skates. He played the 2015-16 season on the Panthers' fourth line, and scored 15 points.



2016 NHL Entry Draft

Remember last offseason when the Panthers traded TJ Brennan to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for their 1st round pick? That ended up being the 5th overall pick. The Panthers selected Yves Gelinas, a center from Quebec, Canada. He spent his entire junior career with the Quebec Remparts. This past season with the Remparts, Gelinas put up 103 points in 64 games. Gelinas is admired for his skill with the puck, his great vision, and his defensive play. He is 19 years old, 62 overall, and has 4 yellow stars of potential. He is expected to play with the Remparts again this upcoming season, and by the way, is of no relation to Martin Gelinas.

Other notable draft selections by the Panthers:

28th overall: LW Cory Hendrickson (60 overall, 3.5 yellow, 19 years old, Sniper, France)
39th overall: D Rob Holden (58 overall, 3.5 yellow, 20 years old, DFD, USA)
58th overall: D Jonathan Duchesne (69 overall, 3.5 yellow, 20 years old, DFD, Canada)



Player Released to Free Agency

Left winger Bill Sweatt (76) and center Zach Hamill (76) were both let go by the Panthers.



Free Agent Signings

Florida inked two new players to contracts this summer. First they signed veteran center Jarret Stoll to a two year contract at $2.8 million per year. He is 81 overall, 34 years old. After that, they signed prospect goaltender Curtis Honey for 3 years at $0.925 million. He is 59 overall, 22 years old, and has 3.5 yellow stars of potential.



Trades



The Panthers made a rather large deal with the Calgary Flames organization. Center Shawn Matthias (83, 28 years old) and prospect defenseman Lars Obergauer (59, 18 years old, 2.5 yellow) were sent Calgary's way in exchange for left-winger Carl Hagelin (85, 27 years old). Florida made this move in an effort to improve their top six. GM Deku Scrub told the media that he wanted to sign a free agent forward, but his ideal targets all re-signed with their teams. Hagelin will start the season playing with Nick Bjugstad and Kris Versteeg.



2016-17 Lineup

Jonathan Huberdeau (87) - Stephen Weiss (84) - Bobby Ryan (87)
Carl Hagelin (85) - Nick Bjugstad (88) - Kris Versteeg (82)
Eric Rinaldo (80) - *Garrett Wilson (82) - Drew Shore (83)
Quinton Howden (79) - Jarret Stoll (81) - Jesse Joensuu (79)

Nick Leddy (86) - Aaron Ekblad (88)
Erik Gudbranson (85) - Alex Petrovic (83)
Danny DeKeyser (83) - Colby Robak (82)

How good do you think Conner McDavid will be now that I bumped him up to 5/5 Green Star Potential? Franchise forsure. I'll let you know!

Game 7 against the New York Islanders. They are without Tavares and Streit and we're without Larsson. Believe it or not we also lost Gonchar and Tallinder during the game. So Greene, Urbom, Blum and Gilroy had a lot of responsabilities.

2-1 NYI, Henrique scores at the start of the 3rd. We're going to OT. Who scores the game-winner? ANDY GREENE! Stanley Cup finals baby. Against the Edmonton Oilers. We have so much injuries on D that Brandon Saad will actually take a regular shift on defense... hahaha

BTW Kovalchuk has 23 pts in 17 games, Henrique 20 and Semin 18. They are 1-2-3 in NHL playoff scoring.

With the conservative settings I'm using it seems when simming the scoring is very low. Lots of 2-1 and 3-2 games. It sucks though to see only 4 or 5 guys every year with more than 80 pts. Anyhow.

The Oilers are a solid squad, but they have Niko Hovinen (82 ovr) starting. That is their weak spot. On D, Schultz, Schultz, Petry, Plante and Zidlicky are solid. They're missing Taylor Hall and Ryan Whitney, which will definitely hurt them in this series. Game 1, we win in OT on a David Clarkson goal, on a feed from pseudo-defenseman Brandon Saad! Go Devils!

And we did it! My first Stanley Cup with the Devils. In second OT of game 5 (I think this was my longest game ever), Andy Greene (who else?) sprawled Kovalchuk on a breakaway and my captain made no mistake with it! We did pour 55 shots on Hovinen only to win 4-3. Adam Henrique was the Conn Smythe winner with 26 points.

Congrats on the cup!

I sim all my games, except I occasionally play overtime in the regular season.

We lost Gonchar and Brodeur to retirement, but that was expected. I made a ton of changes to my roster, went with a bit more youth this time around. Very interesting lineup going into year 3. I will post it later. For now here is the 2014 draft:

1 NSH - Jackson Whistle, G (64 OV, 5 stars)
2 LA - Alex Bureau, G (65 OV, 5 stars)
3 COL - Taylor Dupuis, G (68 OV, 5 stars)
4 BOS - Aaron Ekblad, D (58 OV, 4.5 stars)
5 PIT - Sam Reinhart, C (66 4.5)
6 TOR - Joshua Ho-Sang, RW (62 4.5)
7 FLA - Karel Brendl, G (57 4.0)
8 WIN - Viacheslav Saprykin, LW (63 3.5 green)
9 CBJ - Artyom Kuleshov, D (55 3.5)
10 BUF - Per Bergfors, G (55 4.0)
11 TB - Jake Virtanen, RW (49 4.0)
12 DET - Matt Revel, C (53 4.0)
13 CHI - Brenden Fiebelkorn, G (52 4.0)
14 ANA - Brent Pedersen, LW (52 3.5 green)
15 OTT - Brett Zarowny, G (64 4.0)
16 PHI - Mason McDonald, G (53 4.0)
17 VAN - Marcus Sundstrom, RW (63 3.0)
18 CAR - Michal Plutnar, D (64 3.0)
19 DAL - Justin Myles, G (48 4.0)
20 PHX - Andrew Meredith, C (61 3.0)
21 CGY - Blake Orban, D (62 3.0)
22 DAL - Howard Engelland, RW (62 3.5)
23 MIN - Franklin Hughes, RW (61 3.5)
24 NSH - Radoslav Bobyk, RW (62 3.0)
25 STL - Anthony Landry, D (60 3.0)
26 BOS - Hannu Tuulola, LW (68, 3.0)
27 SJ - Tristan Grant, D (60 3.5)
28 FLA - Oldrich Kloucek, LW (62 3.5)
29 EDM - Tomas Kahnberg, RW (60 3.0)
30 COL - Greg Corso, LW (62 3.0)

First three picks are goalies, and also five goalkeepers went in the top 10! Very weird draft. For us, our first pick was 39th and we picked a guy named Mickael Nylander (lol). Overall, we did not fare very well at the draft table. Not one prospect above 60 overall or with more than 3 stars potential. Ugh.

Have I mentioned how much I hate EA? 22-year-old goaltenders who have retired from hockey are 5-star franchise goaltenders in EA's world

Jokinen now a Shark
March 3rd, 2014
37-20-8
82 points
4th in Western Conference
The Mercury News


Jokinen has 40 points in 65 games.


With the San Jose Sharks in playoff contention, the team needed to add some key players to make it far into the playoffs. According to the Sharks' standard, Olli Jokinen is that type of player. "Jokinen fills the need for a 3rd line center. He can score, pass, and backcheck greatly. He's a great defensive type of center that we needed", says GM Flamesrule. "We feel that he will live up to the hype that we have put on him." Jokinen, who plays for the Winnipeg Jets, has 40 points in 66 games and is a +12, the highest on the Jets. The Jets, who has a record of 22-39-4, are the worst team in the Eastern Conference. on top of that, Jokinen is the only player not to be in the minus zone.

The trade sent Olli Jokinen and left winger Jason Jaffray to the Sharks, while Freddie Hamilton and Matt Tennyson have been sent packing to Winnipeg.


To :
Olli Jokinen (82OVR)
Jason Jaffray (69OVR)

To :
Freddie Hamilton (68OVR; 3stars)
Matt Tennyson (69OVR)


Also, we thought we should share this if some of you are not familiar with Jokinen:

^ Wow, I thought your team would be struggling a lot more since it lost some depth. Jokinen looks like a good acquisition, is he going on your third line?
