Pacific Division 1. Seattle Thunderbirds Owner: @Professor_Merana GM: @White_Knucklerz AGM: @Ducksfanwaterloo Lines: @ZachMann_ - @JaYI77I - @nehxC @x Duece 55 - @Skinnasty 53 @prodigytolegend - @White_Knucklerz - @Mxnahan @Professor_Merana - @dagrinderc13 @jojodevil91 - @Bxrt1_ - @Beaverclopsx27 @Lazy Pedestrian - @x-JohnnyDman-x @Ducksfanwaterloo @tdk_95 Why Ranked #1?: Seattle. This one is interesting. I could have ranked Seattle anywhere from 1-4... but I talked with a few of my managers over in Washington, and they unanimously thought Seattle would walk away with the #1 spot in the Western Pacific. They have the Merana brothers together, with some depth on all three lines. Bxrt is still on an incredible contract, while they're giving Clops a big league debut which he deserves. With the skilled 1/2 line, along with their incredibly talented third line, I can definitely see Seattle winning the Western Pacific. Still hate you tho Beale. 2. Los Angeles Kings Owner: @BLong67- GM: @Streetsmurf AGM: @xMoran19 Lines: @rickchel - @S w a y y 7 1 - @Streetsmurf @GirouxSZN - @Dowdenn @xMoran19 - @BLong67- - @Duchesne x10 @Distraqted - @Lord x Finesse @Bartchy eh - @Gwood_Boys - @vCodester @Kgrilli - @SimplyBrisky @SeIects- @falkdaddy1 Why Ranked #2?: I couldn't decide on whether I wanted to rank the LAK 1st, or 3rd. So I gave them 2nd. They also, similar to Vegas have quite a few attitudes on their team, but I mean BLong is used to that. I believe they have quite a bit of talent on this team, while Rick and Street are together again. LA has three good lines and they'll be difficult to beat. I really like Thoma as a person, so I wish him the best of luck this season and hope he has a good one. 3. Vancouver Canucks Owner: @Hriiz GM: @slammerama AGM: @Lehk- Lines: @Troak 25 - @slammerama - @Hriiz @nazzy2face - @xCounter43x @Kiippper - @The Broche - @ivegotyour6 @Unclejake_213 - @Lehk- @xl-lsilencel-lx - @deerhunter2911 - @JKHank07 @memphisonfire - @Nealrambo @Cxnrad @Burgs I 3 I Why Ranked #3?: NOV. Honestly he traped people yesterday so I moved him up from my original 4th spot, to #3. He got banned last season and a lot of people don't think he deserved to be management again, but he's back. He reunited with Beefy, which has always worked out well for him. I love both the first line and the second line on Vancouver and believe this is a really dangerous team. Excited to see them in action and to see all the shout box feuds with their rivals. Good luck Canucks! 4. Edmonton Oilers Owner: @vKB-_- GM: @Dannyy Briere AGM: @Coach x 19 Lines: @Hughesy_71 - @Canadiens-27 - @Charmop82 @Coach x 19 - @Dangs92 @GoochLicker_23 - @vKB-_- - @xMartel_- @KSKrish - @Dannyy Briere @Fresher_than23 - @XDownSouthKillaX - @lX Kane 88 Xl @Bubba17- - @ramon_and_chill @Mooner2019 @goalieman92 Why Ranked #4?: Edmonton, the team that probably will get mad I didn't rank them first. Maybe just Coach, but I have to say Edmonton lost a few pieces this season and it will be interesting to see how they fair in S13. They still have the french line of Hughesy-Canadiens-Charmop, while having some pretty solid defense. If KB actually can play this season, they'll 100% be a team that can compete for the top spot in the Western Pacific. I like their defensive setup, which is what wins games in NHL 20. 5. Vegas Golden Knights Owner: @KingClutch x 77 GM: @Polgz AGM: @canuckftc12W Lines: @PoIgz - @OG-CrispyCreamy - @King_Formless @stay_at_homed - @canuckftc12W @Brindyx17 - @Really_Good_Dad - @Mclub326 @ItsJodach - @KingClutch x 77 @eHans- - @Rehmtulla - @Hedmxnn @NewAgeNemesis - @OhhCrosby87 @FrenchMoron @iEskimo- Why Ranked #5?: Vegas is a very talented team, however I have been informed by quite a few people that it also has a lot of ego's and attitudes. If the team loses any games, I could see Vegas falling off the deep end. I noticed that Vegas has some decent D, but their 1st line is lacking at C. Should be interesting to see whether or not they can put their problems aside and compete in this league. 6. San Jose Sharks Owner: @radicalapex GM: @JCoul AGM: @Wallywallabee Lines: @i-CrAzYLiiSh-i - @Crafted-95 - @oRecki @Alexdrum100 - @zdball @BigB00tySlide - @JCoul - @Wallywallabee @Psulions32 - @radicalapex @bschmidy10 - @Pusilla194 - @oBiLL3Yo @Hellraisxr_ - @V1P3R2106 @Fishydangles @Tendy x 11 Why Ranked #6?: San Jose didn't impress me in bidding, however Rad has been around forever and knows the league quite well. They have solid goaltending with Fishy and have a few big names in JCoul and Crafted. I'm unsure if Crafted fills a 1C need, but it will be interesting to see if Rad knows something that I don't. I'll be keeping an eye on SJ to see if they can make an impact in this difficult Western Pacific division. 7. Anaheim Ducks Owner: @cmess9030 GM: @SensHockey2525 AGM: @timbilton201 Lines: -- Lines not submitted in time for article. Why Ranked #7?: Unfortunately lines weren't submitted from this team in time to write this article but I have to get this published, considering you're all making a billion trades making these lineups invalid if I hold onto them any longer. I don't know too much about Anaheim. I feel like they have a few decent players in each spot, but I don't really see them having depth or top line talent. I don't believe they'll be able to compete with smart owners like Rad, or with any of the solid teams above them. Cmess seems like a good dude and they have quite a few good players, so I could definitely be wrong here. 8. Calgary Flames Owner: @Fooldawg83 GM: @ginger2001 AGM: @PR0D1GY_81 Lines: @Ska-_-Noodle - @Jwilly_24 - @l Ringy l97l @Timmycdogg - @Diamond--02 @actiondaveI3 - @PR0D1GY_81 - @Kredzky @kickass8000 - @Leafs780 @Charliebiscuit12 - @ginger2001 - @LeKotkaniemi @Brutaldeth14 - @Buckeyes2525 @Fooldawg83 @Schanna4242 Why Ranked #8?: Fooldawg has overtaken StlStash to become the new Flames owner. I know a lot of people have problems with Fool, but in my opinion he's a decent dude just trying to make the right moves for his team. As for rankings, unfortunately I don't see his team performing this season. He'll finish 8th in the Pacific, and that's a Miikeyx09 guarantee. Someone pull this up when I'm wrong!
