  1. Kings send down Kevin Labanc and recall Connor Brown. @Nail
  2. Haha, yeah, I'll change it up. Screwed up the order anyways.
  3. Those are U.S. ranks (we're Columbus, after all). I Googled it...so it MUST be true. ...If not, well, they don't call me Colonel D-Money cuz I'm some dumb army guy.
  4. (Belated) November Sharpshooters and Swabbies It was a fantastic November for the Jackets. Our team was 8th in FPts for the month, and had solid contributions from throughout the line-up. But a few players certainly distinguished themselves: Sharpshooters Admiral Mark Scheifele Mark led the charge for the month, with a phenomenal 99.75 FPts (6.23/G) in November. He is making both myself and co-GM @Monty look like geniuses for locking him up at $4.75 mil. (Unfortunately in CDCFL, he's making me look like less than a genius for trading him to Monty.) Captain Wayne Simmonds When we made the difficult decision to trade Erik Karlsson, it was only because Wayne Simmonds was in the package coming the other way. He is model of consistency, and added 76.25 FPts (5.45/G) for the month. Commander Mike Hoffman Hoffman had a poor October, but really started finding his game in November, capping it off with a hat trick, and ending with 64.5 FPts (4.96/G). Lieutenant Commanders Ian Cole and Nino Neiderreiter Both Ian and Nino recently were promoted, for their surprising production in November. Nino tried the switch to LW, and excelled with 55.75 FPts (4.29/G) for the month. However, the biggest surprise was Ian Cole, with 64.25 FPts (4.59/G). To get that kind of production for only a 1.6 mil cap hit (on a cup contender, no less), is the kind of unexpected boon that has allowed Columbus to rise in the standings. Honorable mentions go to Andrew Shaw and Tyler Myers. Shaw recently joined our squad, and has been fantastic, with 5 Fpts/G for his first 5 games. Myers was an absolute beast in his first 3 games of the month, but unfortunately suffered injury. Recruits in Training - Kyle Wood has been an absolute beast. In his rookie AHL season, he is scoring a PPG - as a defenseman! - Martins Dzierkals has 27 points in 22 games for the Huskies, and is a +15. - Brendan Guhle nearly made the team this year, and has continued his strong play back in Junior (was just called up to Buffalo IRL for emergency recall). - Luke Kunin is showing his leadership, wearing the "C" for the University of Wisconsin, and contributing at a PPG. - Nick Merkley hasn't had strong offensive numbers this season, but his dominant 2-way play has earned him a spot at Team Canada's WJC camp. In addition, we have multiple goaltender prospects that are having fantastic seasons - Ilya Samsonov, Matej Tomek, Adin Hill, and Kaapo Kahkonen. Although none of them would be cheap, management may be willing to deal one for the right return. Swabbies The only players that shot well below our expectations are centers Mikael Backlund and Andrej Nestrasil. However, they still made contributions, and are still young with the potential for more. Management are looking at potential deals to package one of them with a pick/prospect for a more consistent center on a playoff team. Cheers everyone!

  6. Is @lethunder alive?
  7. Columbus thanks you for your patronage.
  8. If you haven't installed and played the game, you can probably ask for a refund for credit.
  9. Meanwhile, Kasperi Kapanen is suddenly ripping it up for the Marlies. ...Maybe this meme was on to something...
  10. Los Angeles Kings Prospect Report Kings management is extremely pleased with the production of a number of our prospects. So we've decided to burden our fellow GMs with a long-winded gushfest... Kevin Labanc – The former OHL star started his professional career in the AHL in impressive fashion, with 10 points in his first 6 games. He was called up IRL on Nov 8th and has stuck in the NHL since. His big-league production started off slow, but with a point in 3 of his last 4 games, he is showing tons of promise. Connor Brown – Connor was ranked 40th on Dobber Hockey’s list of the top 200 fantasy forwards on Nov 10th, and then showed everyone why with a 4-point game on Nov 17th. He’s been quiet since, but the potential is definitely there for him to be a solid middle-6 player on a Leafs team that looks like it may be quite good in a couple of years. Esa Lindell – Esa was called up only a couple of weeks ago, and has been fantastic. He has 3 points, 2 PIMs, and a +2 in 7 games, despite his RL team the Stars having some rough games. Management sees him being a solid top-4 defenseman in the near future, so we used our 1 RFA extension on him to get him locked up at a reasonable rate. Jamie Phillips – With the RL Jets sending Pavelec to the AHL, there wasn’t much room for Jamie to develop there. So they decided to let Jamie start his pro career in the ECHL, and he is absolutely crushing it. In October, he was named goaltender of the month, and then the first week of November, goaltender of the week again. He won all of his first 9 games. His stats are currently 13-2-1, with a 2.34 GAA and 0.924 SV%. Danton Heinen – Danton made the NHL out of camp. Although he acquitted himself well, and was very sound defensively, he was unable to generate any points in his first 7 NHL games. So he was sent down to gain some confidence and develop his offensive game as a pro. The results have been impressive – 5 goals and 3 assists in his first 9 games. Louis Belpedio – Louis surprised a lot of people last year when he beat out Jack Dougherty for a spot on Team USA for the WJC. He performed well, and had a very good season. This year he was named captain of his NCAA team, and he’s responded by taking his game to another level – 3 goals and 3 assists in his first 7 games. A.J. Greer – A.J. is having a fantastic start to his pro career. He was called up to the RL Avs on Nov. 12th, and at the time he was tied for 4th in the AHL in scoring with 5 goals and 9 assistsin 13 games – leading all AHL rookies in points and assists tied for 1st in goals. He only got 1 point in his 5 NHL games before being sent back down, but that is to be expected of a fresh rookie who is not even 20 yet. Kalle Kossila – Kalle has transitioned from NCAA to AHL seamlessly, and has 11 points in his first 14 games. Simon Bourque – The captain of the Rimouski Océanic is killing it, with 24 points in 26 games – as a defenseman. Both the RL Canadiens and the FL Kings are excited to have found such a promising D-man with such a late pick. Jean-Christoph Beaudin – Beaudin is an offensive dynamo for the Huskies, and he is picking up right where he left off last year, with 33 points in his first 24 games, sporting a +17. Martins Dzierkals – 12 goals and 15 assists in 22 games, with a +15. Jonny Brodzinski – A couple of months into his rookie AHL season last year, Jonny was struggling. He was defensively sound, but was not generating much offense at all. But then suddenly, he flicked a switch, and has been close to a point-per-game for almost a calendar year now. This season he has 12 points in his first 15 games. Kenny Agostino – Agostino nearly made the RL Blues in camp, and is having another impressive AHL season with 18 points in 20 games. Jesse Gabrielle – Proving that his draft+1 year was no fluke, with 13 goals and 11 assists in his first 21 games. 28 PIMs too – the kid loves to hit and fight almost as much as scoring. Cole Ully – His rookie AHL season was a disappointment. But his sophomore season has started well, with 7 goals and 4 assists in his first 15 games, and a +8. Warren Foegele – 22 points in 18 games for the Kingston Frontenacs.
  11. Noon Pacific is the cut off. Think you just missed it.
  12. @Nail Los Angeles Kings place Clayton Stoner on IR (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nhl/2838/clayton-stoner), and activate Anton Stralman off of it. Kings also send Connor Brown to the minors (no waivers), and call up Kevin Labanc.
  13. As for the trade suggestion, with the extension to Gaudreau and the early success of Tkachuk, it doesn't seem to make much sense for the Flames to spend an asset like Hamilton on another LW. There seems to be a lot of indications that they don't like Hamilton's personality though. Guess the Bruins weren't just blowing smoke...
