2016 - League Report

Overview:
At the halfway mark of the 1st season. The league is alive and active with many GMs starting to find their feet with tactics and development. The excitement in the chat room and trade conversations is driving the competitive level overall. The East is the most competitive as teams like the Sabres, Penguins, Capitals, Flyers, Bruins and Sens battling it out for the final 2 PO spots. Only 7pts separating these teams so the upcoming trade deadline will be very interesting. In the West, we have the Blues and Kings starting to pull away from their competitors. The Yotes, Wild and Stars are still in the hunt for that final PO spot. The Stars GM Stephen has stopped at nothing in search of finding the missing pieces for their run to the end of the season and hopefully a PO berth.

There are many young and competitive teams in the league that we should not count out. The Jets should be climbing up the West now that their GM Rahim is actively managing his squad. The Oilers, Avalanche, Sabres, Yotes, Stars, Pens are all capable of mounting a more competitive 2nd half. It's safe to say that we have a pretty good bunch of GMs in the WHL and the future looks bright for our league. Keep up the good work and enjoy the rivalries.


GM Corner: This edition we sat down and had a chat with the Panthers' GM Geremy

1. How are you enjoying the online game so far?
A. Been really enjoying it so far. The interactions and dynamics of the league have been great.

2. Is EHM online what you expected it to be?
A. If I had expectations going in to the league, then I'd think this had exceed them.

3. What's the toughest thing you have encountered in the league?
A. Toughest thing is finding a winning formula. Sometimes you're not sure if you're winning because the other team has figured out even less or if your team is winning despite your tactical setup.

4. What's your goal for the Panthers this season?
A. The goal is and always will be, a Stanley Cup. I'd expect that from every other team in the league.

5. What's the best move you've made for the Panthers?
A. Hard to say, there's a lot of good players I got via trades, waivers and FA. I would have to say the best move I've made this season is the trade for Mike Cammalleri, who is the Panthers 2nd leading scorer at the moment.

Trade Highlights:

The best trade made this season so far is by the Devils' GM Markus. He maximised the return for Tlusty, parlayed asset Sam Gagner to address their immediate need and setup for the future also. Good management of asset.

1. traded Jiri Tlusty to acquire Sam Gagner, Yotes 3rd in 2017, Flyers 7th in 2016
2. Traded Sam Gagner and Wings 3rd in 2016 for Brandon Dubinsky, Jackets 2nd in 2017 and Jackets 7th in 2017

Result:
Jiri Tlusty= Brandon Dubinsky, Jackets 2nd in 2017 and 2x 7th
Not bad at all :)
