    I first wanted to congratulate Bridgeport on their back and forth series win. The better team won this series and I've had nothing but respect for them and the NYI organization. Losing always sucks, but if I'm going to lose, I'd like to lose to a team that beats us fair and square. No tag recovery, no second tag shit, just their guys against our guys, and that's what Bridgeport did.

    With that said, I'm sure there's a few of you that are getting off on us being eliminated, and that's fine. I ruffled some feathers this season speaking my mind and made some enemies. I'm not ashamed of losing to a team like Bridgeport. I'm sure people will say we choked, that's fine. People will second guess the lines I put out there, trades I made during the season etc. I've never been one to run my mouth about how good of a GM I am. Things didn't go the way I wanted, but I won't sit here and make excuses, that just takes away from what Bridgeport did.

    With all of that said, the partnership between Maxwell and I as management, with @NugeTV as our owner has come to an end. It's been a fun eight months or whatever it's been, probably closer to a year for Nuge and I working together. I couldn't have asked for better guys to work with. Nuge had always supported my teams whether it be Kelowna in the CHL or Albany here in the AHL. It's a shame that the league is losing a guy like that as an owner. This league would be 10x better with more owners like him (@BMCDONALD19). The thought of doing management for anyone else is scary. With Maxwell, we've been down the same road for a while now, finally did management together. Two completely different personalities, disagreed on 95% of the stuff we talked about in this game, but somehow it made us better management. I think he mentioned that no one has had a better two season regular season record than Albany. That's not too bad for some average NHL 14 players. We've obviously had a lot of good guys that have been with us for the long run, too many to name, but I've appreciated all the work you guys put into it as well.

    I've had a lot of fun these two seasons in the AHL. The community overall is pretty good, just ruined by a few really bad apples. I'll be back here for S19 to do management again, I've already started the process of finding a new AGM to constantly make fun of, and I'll be looking for another Nuge to constantly harass through text. Though I feel set back with some of the shadyness of S18, I still have some faith that it will get cleaned up by S19, but maybe that's just naive of me.

    Best of luck to the rest of the teams in the playoffs and I'll see the rest of you in S19.

    Cheers.

    P.S. Just tagging @LetterCome, because it's fun.

    People get to bent out of shape over what people do or say in these leagues so I wouldn't worry too much about ruffling some feathers. As for the series, these kinds of series restore my faith that you can have a good series win or lose vs teams in this and most leagues. It was a fun series either way and even tho it stings to lose, if we lost I would be fine with it for the fun series it was.

    I dont know anything about what happened before this series, I don't care either. The series showed that you guys are all good players but classy group as well. Good luck in the next season guys. Great series. Was a fun one

    I must have missed when you ruffled feathers and made enemies, but congrats on another successful season. You lost quite a few players to the NHL this season and still won your division and made it to a game 7 against a really good team. While it's probably disappointing that both of your playoff runs didn't last long, ultimately only one team will win the Calder. You built a team without cheating or general scumbaggery, and you had a top 5 team in 2 straight seasons. Nothing to hang your head about, good luck in S19.

    Plus, now you have time to play FIFA.

    Great series Bridgeport. Close, tight checking games that got my juices flowing. That's the way a playoff series should be played. Good luck moving forward.

    Look no further [MENTION=7358]ImJeff[/MENTION] we have before our eyes the worst skillwise, management pair right before our eyes. Ride together. Die together, Bad Boys for Life!

    Seriously though, hmu if you're that stuck on management even though im sure you wont be. Also if you pick wonger over me, i will never forgive you.

    Great series Bridgeport! ! Although it sucks to go down in a game 7, it's even worse knowing that I probably won't be playing on an [MENTION=7358]ImJeff[/MENTION] led team!!

    With that being said, it's fifa time!

    Been following Albany since TeeLogan went up after week 4. Was pulling for you guys. Great two seasons as GM, Jeff. Nice closing speech btw.

    With Bridgeport winning though, I can now root for ex-Blazers [MENTION=11305]Daydayyyy[/MENTION] & [MENTION=9809]joestud18[/MENTION]. Heh
