:scorn:We are trying to crawl across the finish line.

76% complete.


Think at season's end, we need to re-confirm what coaches are committed.  Also, I have always been an advocate for a week "off" between seasons (after draft or after final's games).  Give people a chance to catch there breath. (Not all of us need it, but some do, I think.  I know I want to delay playing personally until Chaos has stats site up.)  

Just thinking out loud. :)

Boy, if Ice thinks he is burnt out now - wait until he has to play 16 games in one night.

Agree.

:big_smile:Plan A = Ice and Chef finish the season and we have our third straight 100% completion.
Playoffs are done and Bobbleheads mailed by December 15.
All 10 Current coaches plus Atomic Raven play in Season 4.
Draft Video, Lottery, and Draft done the week before Christmas.
Season 4 Begins January 15.

:unhappy:Plan B = Ice and Chef don't get finished.
Ice and Chef are disqualified from playoffs and Season 4.
We have playoffs based on Win %.
Playoffs are done and Bobbleheads mailed by December 15.
8 Coaches that (finished) plus Atomic Raven and Hopefully 1 more to give us 10 play in Season 4.
Draft Video, Lottery, and Draft done the week before Christmas.
Season 4 Begins January 15.

For the record, I will likely not be available Friday night.  

Even tonight or Thursday is iffy. (I will make time if I know someone will be there. But can't commit to "just showing up and hoping for the best".)  I will put a feeler out on Discord.

Completely understandable, Thank you for your efforts.

Since Ice did not show to play the games shouldn't the playoff seeding be based off Winning % not points?  This would move Raph from #4 seed to #1 seed, and everyone else would drop down 1 seed.

Yes, but I wanted to further handicap, KingRaph.:big_smile:

Though I actually think he likes being the Visitor, anyway thanks for the catch, but we are going with points and chaos is already working on setting it up.

Never a perfect solution to when a team drops.

Incredible Series with @aqualizard last night for the Teddy Bear Cup.
Easily the most fun I have ever had playing NHL 94.

LA (Aqua) took the first 2 games in Minnesota. 
Both games were tight checking and hard fought and both were 3-2 victories for the Kings.

Down 0-2 the scene shifted to LA.
Minnesota made a major shake up in their line-up.
Dino moved from Center to LW, Shanahan was inserted into the line-up at Center, and Larmer remained at RW.
Ruutu went to the bench and Bourque and Moose Vasko switched sides.
It paid huge dividends as the NorthStars got a dominating 5-1 victory.
Those dividends were short lived as LA responded with 7-3 shellacking in Game 4 and a commanding 3-1 lead.

Down 1-3 Dino Ciccarelli took to Discord and posted what was happening and also guaranteed a North Stars Victory in Game 5. (not kidding)
Aqua had come back from down 0-3 to Jer in the previous series, so I thought maybe put some pressure on him not to turn around and blow a big lead.
And, I am not kidding Dino delivered with a HAT TRICK and a 4-3 victory. 
I also shifted my line-up again moving Larmer to Center, Shanahan on RW, and Dino still on the Left.
Best Game of my life. 
The only down side was Steve Larmer's GWG came when Aqua and I's connection had gone screwy for like the last 2 minutes of the game.
Not really a lag spike, just had been screwy (really fast) for like 1 minute.

So now the series is 3-2 LA going back to the Great Western Forum and game 6 and a chance for Aqua to win the Teddy Bear in front of the Home fans.
In a huge back and forth game. 1-0 (MIN),  2-1 (LA), 4-2 (MIN), and finally (4-4) at the end of Regulation.
Bobby Hull scored with 1:37 to play to tie it for Aqua.
Then Steve Larmer wins it at 1:51 of OT.
The Crowd went silent in the Forum as the teams were headed back to Minnesota for GAME 7.
NEW BEST GAME OF MY LIFE.

GAME 7 in Minnesota all the Pressure is on Aqua and LA.
I can feel him shaking.
He is in his second straight Game 7.
After coming back from down 0-3, could he really blow a 3-1 lead? to CoachMac of all people?

The Northstars come out buzzing and quickly jump out to 2-0 lead.
I can feel it.  I've got my sword drawn and i am ready to finish him.
I am dominating play.
then with 10 seconds left in the first period Brian Bradley scores to make it 2-1.
LA score 2 more in the second and leads 3-2 going to third.
again I feel like I am dominating play in the third, but Aqua is making great saves with League Cover Boy Johnny Bower.
With 1:23 to play Brian Bradley scores again (actually had a Hat trick) to make 4-2.
I pull my goalie but just can't finish and Aqua and the Kings prevail for the Teddy Bear Cup.

VGG's, Congratulations to Aqualizard!
Total GF/GA 25-23
Aqua was 23-21 vs Jer

Huge playoff for the Lizard Man to Game 7 Road Wins
Total GF/GA 48-44

I am already sorry that we are not starting Season 4 today.
This is what I want.
We played this entire Playoff in less than a week.
The whole season in about 2.5 weeks.
3 Seasons in about 75 days.

The format made for a very balanced fun competitive league.
Fast, Fun, Lots of drafting, Lots of Playing, Lots of Playoffs, Trophies.
100% completion in 2 Seasons.  1 guy away from 100% in the Final season.

Huge Thanks to everyone who played in the PRL and @chaos

PRL WILL BE BACK!

Bailey.jpg@Brutus and the Chicago Blackhawks win the Bailey Bobble!

bernie-geoffrion-signed-image-59523.jpgBoom Boom Geoffrion is the League MVP.
In 1961 Boom Boom became only the second player to score 50 goals in a season.
The pixelated Boom Boom was based on that season and matched it.
2nd straight season a Retro Guy is MVP.
Andy Moog is the Best Goalie.
Ray Bourque is the Top Defensemen.
Many records are broken in Season 3.
League record in Bold.
Italics are Retro Players.
