Good luck to everyone playing

I'm hoping for a better record than last season, I have improved every season since I've been in the league

First Quick, then Stamkos and now Zibanejad !

My team is haunted with long-term injuries

Although I don't have any injuries and my team is doing okay-ish in the different categories, I just can't get a favorable matchup.

That, and the Rask trade has come back to haunt me.... After a mediocre season last year, he's been a brick wall so far, meanwhile Mrazek fell off the sky...

That's it, my team is done.

I was so happy with the goalies I got at the beginning of the season only to realize now that they were my undoing.

You can do pretty well with one decent goalie and one backup from a team with a struggling/injured starter and a third spot for picking any FA that plays that night when one of your other goalies are off-duty.

Goalies are by far the easiest position to quick-fix.

Just a reminder to everyone, this matchweek is a continuation fram last week and ends on Thursday.
This is because of the all-star game

Matt decided to step down from the High Stickin' team so I asked a former league member to re-join us.

Darn! I thought the games started today at noon my time, but it was 11 AM and thus I missed out on getting a goalie in ](*,) I wish I'd paid closer attention :oops:

I've now made as many roster moves/acquisitions in 2 weeks as my predecessor did in 16 weeks :-D

I just realised we hadn't set a trade deadline. So I set it on Thursday
Not that there are lots of trades in the league, I just don't want to see any in the playoffs.
After tonight we only have four gameweeks until the end of regular season.

Can anyone stop the Black Bears? They are the top team again

Great job Ivan and Adam! You guys are awesome :notworthy:

I have not had any reliable internet at home during this season. It annoyed the heck out of me and took some of the joy out. :rant:

Hi guys,

I want to let you know that I am gonna step away from this league. I don't have the desire any longer.
Let me know if anyone of you guys want to become the League manager so I can make the change

Take care!
