    Hey guys...if you can, please try to tally all of your games played into one edited post. You can continually keep coming back to the same post, hit edit and then add games as they go similar to the way we have tracked subs in the past. This is way easier for Sergio or the admins to track at the end of they year and it'll make sure you get credit for every game you played. No one wants to go back through what will surely be 20 pages of games posted in various places to audit all the posts and make sure everything is counted and nothing is double counted.


    Thanks!

    Well...to say I’m surprised would be a giant understatement. I would like thank Sergio and Larry for the recognition and all of the people who have offered kind words about my selection as GM of the year. I had no idea I was eligible for this award, but I sure am thankful to be recognized as being worthy. I’ve always tried to play, trade and handle my admin duties with the utmost integrity and honesty. Doing things “the right way” and being viewed as a person who chooses to follow that path is very important to me, which makes this award even more special. Thank you for that.


    This year has been filled with tremendous joy and unbelievable challenges. The fun and success that I’ve had in VHA this was also enhanced by a new addition to our family and many other blessings. In the less positive times, when I was dealing with many of the things Sergio eluded to, VHA was a stabilizing force and source of distraction, entertainment and conversation with old friends. This proved to me again that we offer something even the most current NHL release for console doesn’t...friendships, fun, conversations and community. I hope that VHA can continue to be a source for support, hockey, chatting and a welcome distraction in crazy times, for many years to come.


    Thanks again!


    Earlier this week I was able to collect my first VHA Cup as the Philadelphia Flyers. It was an incredibly long and stressful run, during which I was pushed to the max by 4 very gifted GMs. I consider it an honor to have found a way to beat 2 time cup champion Jamie (TOR), perennial cup finalist, Mathias (PIT), a consistently dangerous playoff performer in Sergio (MTL) and Roi (CGY), who had an incredible season and playoff run. There's a few words I'd like to end with, but first a few numbers...


    SERIES RESULTS:

    Philadelphia over Calgary 2-1 in OT

    Philadelphia over Calgary 1-0

    Philadelphia over Calgary 3-2

    Philadelphia over Calgary 4-1


    Carter Hart was named the playoff MVP after allowing only 4 goals in a 4 game sweep of Calgary. For the playoffs, Hart was 13-2 with a 2.41GAA and a 91.57SV%.


    Anze Kopitar: 21GP - 5G - 13A - 18PTS

    TJ Oshie: 21GP - 7G - 10A - 17PTS

    Mike Hoffman: 21GP - 10G - 6A - 16PTS

    Paul Stastny: 21GP - 7G - 8A - 15PTS

    Erik Gustafsson: 21 - 5G - 10A - 15PTS


    UNSUNG HERO OF EACH ROUND:


    Philadelphia over Toronto (4 games to 0)

    There's no easy way to say this (for Jamie), but every one of the forwards had a great series vs Toronto. Paul Stastny elevated his game and scored some big goals, but frankly, it was the overall depth that put Philadelphia through to the next round here. Perhaps the most unsung hero is Roman Josi, who continually refused to fight Kyle Clifford, until he beat the wheels off him late in the series.


    Philadelphia over Pittsburgh (4 games to 2)

    It sure as hell wasn't whoever was covering Pastrnak! In truth, if I had to pick one player it would be Clayton Keller, who was traded to Philadelphia from Pittsburgh, earlier in the year. Keller was part of the 3rd line with Nylander and Foligno, which did it's job by scoring important goals vs whoever they were thrown out against. Pittsburgh routinely tried to catch line 3 out vs their line of Guenztel, Crosby and Kane, but but Keller and Nylander held their own and found ways to create turnovers and goals.


    Philadelphia over Montreal (4 games to 3)

    This is possibly the most clear pick for me. In spite of a fantastic standin performance in net by Anton Khudobin for the first 2 game, the pick has to be Erik Gustafsson. I don't know that I'll ever be able to explain how insane it was to see Gustafsson (who had 0 playoff goals prior to this series) score 4 huge goals in this series alone. Gustafsson would go on to score the game winner vs Calgary in game 1 of the final, but vs Montreal he was dominant here. Whether he was on human growth hormones or just the beneficiary of a very hot run at he perfect time, we may never know, but he was the clear standout, finishing the series with a +11.


    Philadelphia over Calgary (4 games to 0)

    It's very hard to pick one player from this series, but it's hard to argue against Carter Hart, who only gave up 4 goals in 4 games. In games 1 and 2, Hart faced limited shots, but he made several key saves in each game, which Philadelphia won 2-1 and 1-0, respectively. In game 3, Roi upped his offensive game and by game 4, Calgary was putting serious pressure on Hart, but he would not bend. I could possibly also have made the case for TJ Oshie, who scored some big goals here, but Hart stole the show.


    FINAL THOUGHTS:


    There were many times, over many different seasons, where I played my final game of the season and thought that perhaps someone who played the way I played (strictly within the rules), simply couldn't win the cup. I'm happy to report, that's untrue. I'm also happy to report that the hard work I did on my roster really mattered, thus proving that YOUR participation matters too!


    I could feel the difference in ratings when facing Jamie, who had somehow started a rebuild and still managed to finish 5th in the East. I could feel the depth of my bottom six keeping me within striking distance vs Mathias and his team of all-stars. I couldn't have survived a 7 game series with Sergio without the depth I had in goal and on D. In short, I couldn't have won the cup without having put in my time building assets and bringing it all together for this run. To that end, I hope everyone who watched any of these series believes that you can win, not only by playing cleanly, but by being active, making trades and participating in all of the offseason events that can push you over the top.


    And with that...the honeymoon is over, it's time to start the process of building a team that can defense this title!


    Thanks to all who participated this year and I hope everyone comes back, more active than ever!
