To compliment him on the first line they went all in on LG Legend Boss of Bosses, which could be somewhat of a gamble. He's far removed from his golden days of old-gen NHL but maybe he'll be motivated to return to form with someone like LoL with him. Other than those two at forward there isn't a whole lot there. LikeABoss, Sudzy, and Cotes is a meh 2nd line. Where they lack at forward depth is definitely made up in other places though. SkillzPayBillz is the top 2 dman every team desires, and joining him are a load of above average dmen. This may be the season where @Kazpor gets to shine. And at goalie they picked up two studs in Kerns and Garbs. Kerns will likely be tied down by PSN/ESHL, but the games he will be available for will be almost guaranteed points for Carolina. Garbs can also hold his own. They may be on the outside looking in due to this rough division, but they have the right people to make something happen.

He laid out big money for the Brad/Gerbe/Marcotte line, and he'll expect that notable trio to produce for him. @CaLL Me Jakoo appears to be staying which is a huge boost to the second line as without him it would be hard to fill with someone as talented and affordable. Their third forward line of Wags/Walsh/Bullbreed has plenty of chemistry and will also be able to hold their own. On the backend @Deceasedgoblin and Rammer Hater are a great top pair. They only question mark out of the six is @Wolfy l12l, who's been away from the NHL pace of play for a little while. He has the right mindset though, to keep the puck out of the net. When your 6th dman isn't a liability it's very comforting for the team. Speaking of liabilities, their goaltending may be where that concern lies. Larsbone may be a suitable backup, and it's hard to tell what kind of season Jabber is going to have. They are going to be facing a lot of strong offenses in their division (NYI, NJD, PIT), so hopefully the strong defense in front of them bails them out occasionally.

This season though, he may have built a potential cup contender. The forward core is stacked with talent and chemistry. Laine/Riorio won't have to carry the load of top line play and will be able to pound on weak third line matchups while Stewkos, Fox, and Co. will be more than good enough to handle good lines. MarkyMeatball may be a steal at 500k too. The Devils defense is also looking very good with the likes of Sitck, Ped, Spooer, and Clement rounding out their top 4. Bonez and Miller would be a fantastic 3rd pair on any team, and if matched up with Riorio and Laine expect them to slaughter 3rd lines. Like Columbus the weakness of this team is goaltending. Zero and Smelly are in the "good enough" category. They won't steal you many if any games, and may cost you one or two. But more often than not they will get the job done well enough. With their cap space expect them to try and upgrade that position. Grades: OFF (A) DEF (B+) GOL (C+) New York Islanders Forwards 1. Basful (LW) A RA 2S 0R$2,000,000 2.

Fisher and Clamps have built what could be the best team in the East. At forward you have talent on every line with Kcut, Gren, Fisher, and Basful. Grappler will be the wild card. If he can perform like he does on defense you can call this the best forward core in the East. @WoollyDanimal12 is also heavily underrated along with Schwatz. Brandon may be the only weak spot. At defense it's the same story. Clamps(or Bren)/Trobs is a killer top pair, Bren/Durkriot will be a fantastic 2nd pair. Donnywood/Trocity is about an average 3rd pair, but they may be split up to improve the overall setup. At goalie, either Gally or Knight could be the starter on most teams. Whichever one plays will not matter, although I'd say Gally has more experience to how goaltending goes in LG compared to club. Grades: OFF (A+) DEF (A-) GOL (B+) New York Rangers Forwards 1.

At forward Fn Waz was a fantastic pickup, albeit at a high cap hit. @BLicK12 is once again in a Ranger's uniform, is this the year he can break the team records? DejaVecu, Donnybrah, and HugoQC are also good pieces at forward. The issue with this team is the major lack of defense. Canuck and Hedman are about it. Dvetts is a question mark, and the rest are more or less 3rd pair guys. In this division it will be paramount that they do not let this be their downfall. @lx JoneZ xl Is one of the best, but will he actually play? He's known to be a bit upset on "bad" teams. Anndroo is a good choice for the backup position, but if Jonez drops poor avail on them you can't expect this guy to fulfill the starter role.

It's hard to nail down what their top forward line actually is though. It may be Yoshi/Carch/Breaky, which at first glance seems kind of weak compared to divisional opponents. It seems like they went with overall depth instead of large cap splashes on stars. Same goes at defense, where @Mr JimmyG 89 is their only dman over 2.5 million. @J 0 h N x l27l is a fantastic pickup along with @x Neal x 18 x, but they don't have that "Name" top anchor the defense. @Leprechaun205 is a great pickup at 500k, and he'll perform pretty well for them.

You can never go wrong with @Duggan at center, he shows up for the bigs. Karmuh and Continuous Cycle are two good RW options as well and will be great 2nd and 3rd line players respectively. JBT was a last minute pickup for them, and may be the only forward piece they would upgrade over the next few weeks. Switching to defense it's the same story. Nuge/Kopi/Burgh/Brando is a fantastic top 4. Shuck on a 3rd pair is almost unfair. With the defense minded centers and excellent defense you can expect the Penguins to once again be the defensive powerhouse that they normally are. SteveB returns to aim for another Cup and Vezina, and expect him to get 6 a week. Kodiak is another great backup option. Grades: OFF (B+) DEF (A-) GOL (A-) Washington Capitals Forwards 1.

On paper, Washington has a fair amount of forward talent in @PlayboiPryme, @kinklater 10, and @Keapps. Dork, Leche, and Wumpa will be a decent 2nd line as well. Their 3rd line drops off a bit with Blades, Flode, and Hischier. At defense @T Jenx and @Bomb2r are two excellent dmen, but past that things start to drop off immediately. Nys, Mees, or Sixaxis will have to play on the first pair, which doesn't look too promising. @trevwings will have to carry the 3rd pair, and it's hard to tell how he'll perform.

At forward it appears that they are depending on Tenacious/JJr/Beta Celly to play as a first line, which is okay but not impressive. Tony/Dings/Marco is a great second line though, probably one of the better ones in the league. the third line however looks rather weak. And defense it's the same story. Blade MTL and Ian Caution are an okay top pair. Fungus and Ragez is a good 2nd pair, and the 3rd pair is a bit shaky (Gazzerk has horrible avail, expect ECUs here). Between the pipes it's a bit scary. I have heard of BFerris from the CHL two seasons ago but the NHL is a whole different story, ScootMaGoot is a name I've never heard of.

The Haxby/Chislett duo always produces, add on Hopkins, 17, Chum Lee, and Maatta and you have two solid forward lines. The third line is going to be a big question mark with BrandonBramanti and Schizo, but expect Lou to wheel and deal to improve there. The defense would look very weak without Lou. @Tom 0 is great and will likely be paired with Lou, but past those two you have a lot of 500k dmen of limited talent. With the loss of Marc Savard in net it makes those defensive holes even bigger. @SleightOfVic didn't get the opportunity to play with Winnipeg last season so I know he's excited for this opportunity.

Nightmare xX (G) VRA 2S 1R$500,000 Spent: $34,000,000 Cash: $1,000,000 With most of their defense settled before bidding it was almost guaranteed that Florida would be throwing money on a big forward pickup. @x S m ii R k Y is a great move even at 8 million. Expect Moe/JLP/Bixted to be their most dependable line while Smirky is used to bolster another line. @Korpy is a very sneaky pickup, and very valuable at 500k. At defense Drai and Terry are a great top pair while Vargy, Garoo, and Queek are all suitable top 4 players. Shanebobane is their 6th man, and it will be interesting to see who he is paired with. In net they had to go cheap, and they got some good 500k goalies in Nightmare and Lauxey. They are cheap goalies for a reason though. They should do a decent job, but nothing special is going to be expected of them. Grades: OFF (B+) DEF (B+) GOL (B-) Montreal Canadiens Forwards 1. Glitch Goaling (LW) VRA 1S 0R$500,000 2.

Even though forwards were their lowest priority they still managed to land some good pickups in @Coffey x9, @o Crazy Legz o, and @Strizzy x06. Past those three there are a lot of gambles that were made. Which Midi is going to show up this season? Is Yuri any good at forward? And can Glitch Goaling/Killzone do a good enough job on the 3rd line? There are far less questions at defense though, as Panda, Kabobo, and BlueLineKing will do a good job at filling up the top 4. @Bubba GX finally didn't get a 4m+ bid and is probably one happy anime lad. Meanwhile Montreal has one of the better duos in the league with Bcripps and Killer, both of them being very good starters over the past few seasons.

Him and Zacha put together what could be another one of the sleeper teams like he had last season. @Jemima is a great pickup if he's motivated to play, as well at Freddy, ArmyofOne, and Wadden. St Michel is always going to put up points as well. Defensively they picked up several top 4 guys in Super Marky, Backlund, and Lil Nickai who will all do a good job on the top pair. Eagles, Zacha, and DaddyRidesBike should fill in the rest of the core well enough to make this team a playoff contender. In net you can never go wrong with @Perrilyzer1 and @nranieri29 is a good choice as a backup, especially for 500k. Grades: OFF (B-) DEF (B+) GOL (B+) Tampa Bay Lightning Forwards 1.

George and Hendry had some cap to blow, the question was who they would put it on. They did a fantastic job of picking up Ksw, Wutang Financial, and Papi Gonzalez, all of which can do a great job on the depth lines. Uupy is their only realy question mark at forward, and they have the cap to improve his spot and the likes of Poopeded. At defense they also did a great job of picking up talent. @BRADENxHOLTBY was supposed to be a top 3 pick in his draft before he took management, he may be the steal of the draft. Mitchy Marns may be the only defenseman that they would part ways with. Newfie and Krazed will do a suitable job in net, and probably the only great 500k tandem available in the league.

Please check out his Eastern Conference Predictions here: http://leaguegaming.com/forums/inde...ding-playoff-predictions.263279/#post-1679295 "Forwards - This is another one of the teams I mentioned having forward depth that could run with any line in LG. One of the best forward groups in the LGHL, and it'll get even better once Stifmeister decides its time to play on someones tag. Defense- Huge pickups in @Watman and @CadarianTV . Nothing excites me more than seeing the fucking sleemo crusher lacing them back up. @Keith x l 2 l is a top line defenseman, and @McNasty x 97 is also very good. Goalies - Could be the best 1/2 punch in the league. @APsychicTaco is a serial killer, but hes also one of the best goalies in LG. @x Lundqvist x would be a number 1 on most teams, but not with the man himself ahead of him. Legit chance to represent the East in the Stanley Cup Finals." Grades: OFF (A-) DEF (A-) GOL (A-) PLAYOFF PREDICTIONS METRO Penguins (Y) - 95% Islanders (X) - 85% Blue Jackets (X) - 65% Devils (W) - 65% Capitals - 50% Hurricanes - 40% Flyers - 30% Rangers - 10% I feel like this division is rather settled at the top with the Pens and Isles easily coasting into playoff positions. The latter seeds however are up for grabs if any of the 3rd-6th spot teams falter or excel. The Metro division may steal the wild card spots away from the Atlantic, possibly allowing Washington into the playoffs even with a good New Jersey team. The Flyers are on the outside looking in and the Rangers are really going to have to make something out of nothing to pick up a wild card spot. ATLANTIC Lightning (Z) - 95% Maple Leafs (X) 80% Panthers (X) -80% Canadiens (W) - 55% Senators - 45% Red Wings - 40% Bruins - 35% Sabers - 30% Tampa may be able to run away from the rest of this division if they play their lines right, meanwhile it will be a two way scrap for the division seeds between Florida and Toronto. Ottawa, Detroit, and Boston are likely to scrap for a potential wild card spot if they can steal it from the Metro division or Montreal.
