  1. Excited to get this year started!!! Let's do this
  2. @zenflyersfan
  3. Sunday. Good day for a sig update for 17-18! rainy day activities
  4. Some final strokes to get roster ready. Special thanks to MV and players for mutually beneficial negotiations. Franson had had been slated for top 4 in Boston, but as he's currently seeking a PTO irl, it's become clear that he's not on any team's top 4 list . We were thrilled to be able to find talent like Oduya so late in the summer. Boston has capitalized on underestimated defensive defenseman before. Both Hjalmarsson and Oduya will serve a shaparones for the more offensively minded Shattenkirk and Ristolainen on the top 4, and combine for a tough PK unit to bolster the backend. We are very excited to welcome back Matt Cullen. With lots of fresh young faces in our bottom six, and the loss of Dwight King and Matt Hendricks, Matts experience and leadership will be the glue that binds it all together. Matt will spend the next year centering our 4th line, and leading/mentoring the young squad as it changes and fluctuates throughout the season. Here's an early look at how the roster could look. Schwartz - Stepan - Tarasenko Niedereitter - Draisaitl - Reinhart Dvorak - Sutter - Bjorkstrand Aston-Reese - Cullen - Boucher Desjardins Shattenkirk - Ristolainen Hjalmarsson - Oduya Miller - Marincin Franson - Clendenning Bishop Howard Forwards - We've got interesting pressure around center... we may be overestimating Aston-Reese's current ability... can't see how Boucher won't get waived/demoted in Vancouver, so that spot could be Archibald or Zykov, depending on how they produce at camp. Defense - pretty comfortable with my top 4, as I've read lots of indicators that Oduya will play with Karlsson irl, which could make him a quality value-added pickup. Franson' a wildcard, sounds like he'll have to take less to get a deal done in the league so we'll see. Clendenning sure needs to step up and take a role, but not sure it's there for him irl. Marincin seems a perennial odd ball in rl TOR. Not sure how he fits... trade/demote/scratch? Maybe Gaunce or Auvitu could make a push? We do still have a offer in for young d-man we feel could contribute right away. Goal - is Ben Bishop our goalie of the future? Could Howard challenge again, or will he even finish/start this season as a Bruin? Lots of questions, no answers at this time. ready, set, go!
  5. done
  6. The Bruins would like to release Quinton Howden from his contract, and wish him well with Dinamo-Minsk in the KHL. https://www.cbssports.com/fantasy/hockey/news/quinton-howden-joining-russian-club/ drafted 1st round in 2010... probably my most disappointing draftee. Rough draft year all around for growth for my team that year... my other 1st went to Joey Hishon... ouch. seven years ago .
  7. LTIR won't start until the season starts.
  8. The Bruins would like to release Dwight King from his contract, and wish him well with Avtomobilist. http://www.tsn.ca/ex-habs-f-king-signs-two-year-deal-in-khl-1.829811 I remember starting as a gm, and losing Scott Parse (a young NHL call-up) to injury, so I thought it would be a good idea to sign the RL Kings 'next best' call-up, and I did. Probably my 5th or 6th signing as a gm. This was Dwight King. Scored in his first game, and through 365 CDCGML games Dwight posted 53 goals, 109 assists, 98 pims and a career +3. Dwight literally played up and down the roster, from top line and PP, to grit and special teams (in RL and in CDCGML)! Not a flashy player, but certainly fulfilled his duties, and left it all on the ice. Likely why he departs the NHL with two Stanley cup victories. Thanks Dwight, for a quick-sign space filler, that sure was a great 7 years. Long live the 'King'!
  9. Teams looking for a starting goalie: Kind of deep in summer, but I've had some interest expressed in Jimmy Howard. We are going to start listening to offers at this point, so if you are interested, please contact at your earliest convenience. Though we love Jimmy, and we can undoubtedly start the season with him without reprucussion due to circumstance, we do recognize he has aspirations to remain a starter, and we've invested strongly in Ben Bishop for that role. We'd like to respect Jimmy's role, and seek to find him the right team to move forward with. Please forward offers to the desk of the Greensman
  10. PM me your draftees info - player/round/overall selection - I'll get em added on
  11. I made Rick Nash disappear, and you didn't even see it. *ninja smoke-bomb* poof!
  12. abra-abra-cadabra
  13. No new names. Just be patient like a summer's breeze I'm getting antsy, too but had to remind myself it's a long wait still. Weather's good, I'm just paper pushing while everyone else is hopefully enjoying the beach. refresh... nothing new... refresh... nothing new... refresh...
  14. Ok. If you have a signing that has not yet been added to the spreadsheets, PM it to me, and I'll get it on your sheet. If there is a thread posted trade that hasn't been adjusted, please PM me the details, and I can make it happen on your spreadsheet. thanks for the help guys, by not making me go through the thread, your helping make it a digestible task
  15. Similar to above: if you guys have any simple book keeping stuff to be edited on your spreadsheet, PM me and let me know. I`m not doing signings or trades yet, just keeping our records straight at the moment.
