I'm the new Ottawa Senators GM and here's a little introduction so you guys can get to know a little bit about me. My name is Nicolas C-N, and I'm from Quebec City. As you probably guested by my name, I'm french but I believe my english is fairly decent. But still, sorry in advance for any butchering I might end up doing.
Some background on me. I've been participating in various sim league for about 10 years now (on and off, mostly on). My biggest accomplishment in thoses years is probably the 2 Stanley Cup in a row that I won. I'm a big fan of leagues that exists since a long time, because it add a degree of realism that cannot be obtained otherwise. It is, in my opinion, a big pleasure to see the draft picks you've made 5 years ago finally pan out and become part of your roster. I'd also add that I'm a conservative GM, not making a lot of trades, but who likes to tweak is roster when I feel it is necessary. I used to like to have a lot of experience players in my team, but since the apparation of the salary cap, I've used a more balance approach. My knowledge of prospect has also increase over time, and I wouldn't call me an expert, but I know my share on that subject.
On a personal level, I'm 24 and working as a consultant for an IT firm. I used to be a Nordiques fan, but I have since switched to being a Habs fan. I'm also a big football (soccer) fan. I used to play but had to stop because of knees injuries. I am now concentring on cycling, a sport I'm still discovering but that I like a lot. Unfortunately, the weather here being what it is, I'm stuck to cycling indoor about 6 months a year.
And now, what will happen in Ottawa for the next couple weeks. Not much I must say. The lineup you see now is probably the one you will see for the start of the season. I'll use this time to familiarize myself with my team and with the league. A solid defenseman is probably the first thing I'll be looking for tough. The financial situation of the team is also something I'll keep an eye on.
I'm looking forward talking to all of you, and thank you for accepting me in your league. I am sure, it'll be a great deal of fun.
