Haha, I wasn’t here to see the originals, so I have to ask (also, the greens in greens have a short term memory effect... I forget the date you started and always forget Jannik Hansen)... you made like a star and supernova’d out pretty quickly after that :lol:

 

oh god... last time I try to help a concerned GM :picard:

To be honest I’m not one of the ones that started when the league started. 
 

But, I sure as $&!# went supernova back in the day before I was ‘perma-banned’.

How many GMs have been here from the beginning? I can no longer remember that far back. 

I took on the SJS first  but as a replacement GM, "RQ'd" and came back as the Rangers, "RQ'd" again and realized I was being crabby and apologized and rejoined before a new GM was hired. Been here ever since. Love the league, love the people, love my team.

I’m old enough to be some of these GM’s dad. 
 

And friendly enough with their mom’s to have made it a possibility. :bigblush:

Somebody's billet mom is a rocket!

I came in my grade 7 year, so 2011-2012 season I believe. 10 years, 1 playoff berth, and 1 draft lottery win. #fireRomo has been trending once or twice in Carolina this last decade. 

I think I got here after Romo, seems to me he was here when I got here, that Mike took overSJS from me, so he came in after me, OH and I just remembered Sharpshooter recruited me out of Canucks Talk! Before the nuclear option happened with his account, lol

I have one remaining player from the inaugural season. 

 

My sweet sweet boy... Kris Letang 

How many cups did you ride that Pony to? Not just the one, I don't think?

Maybe this is your year! 

Doubtful. Too Canuck heavy in key areas.  It's always been my Achilles heel. :lol:

 

My team is built solid enough, but our improvement must come from within.  If Petey and co. can get it figured out in the next few years, with Petey, Bo and Demko, I'll be in good shape.  Building strong youth and depth everywhere else. 

 

Trust the process.

Who was the GM before me in Colorado that left the AVS in shambles? :lol:

If memory serves correct it was nucksrule420 (give it take on spelling)

 

maybe too much 420, and not enough ‘rule’?:lol:

All this talk about OGs and you forgot the guy who holds the GML record for most teams GMed, and most times quit (you have some catching up to do @Crabby).

 

My signature move is to set up a good team and as soon as I leave, all the vets decline instantly leading to years of rebuilding...
