mods i placed this in video gaming as we use a video game for our sims, feel free to move.

Hi guys,

Most of you know me, i've been on this board for a long time and if you're like me you check this page once or twice a day out of sheer habit.
It was one of those times three years ago that i got hooked up with quite possibly the best sim league on the net:http://whatthepuck.freeforums.org/portal.php

We use NHL 09 to sim a living, breathing hockey league complete with a cap, free agency, line editing and stats for your players. The people who run this site have been simming EA games since nhl 07 so know in advance that this is not a "here today" kind of site. It's great fun and an awesome way to pass the time between hockey games.

In order to play you need to be able to say yes to the following

Can you check your personal messages once a day
Do you have a detailed knowledge of the NHL and it's players
will you, or do you already have ICQ (we use to talk trade amongst ourselves)

If you can say yes to those three things you'd make a good GM

Recently we've had several gm's step down leaving 4 teams open

edmonton
NYI
Minnesota
Flordia

If you are intrested in a team and who is on that particular roster (remember FA so the rosters are quite different) PM me and i'll be glad to show you the ropes. We have several LGW players on the board as well along with fans of nearly every team.

I was just checking something like this out on one of the Flames forums sites. I think I understand it for the most part. I would be interested in something like this if you guys could just re-explain the basics to me ide be happy to join.

do they ever reset the rosters? judging by what they are in your posts, they have changed quite a bit. do they get reset each year? wasn't sure if there was just a ton of trading each year, or if they had been keeping things going with the same rosters year after year.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

Rosters are not reset and there is a FA period after each season. I recommend joining up, it's a well run league with a good group of people. I've been involved in it and it's predecessor over the last few years, very enjoyable.

Not a huge amount to explain, take over a GM-less team, set their lines and tactics and try to win a cup. Trading is allowed and like I said earlier there is FA pool which is added to every off-season as contracts run out. A salary cap is in place ($60m as it stands), so you do have to manage finances a bit, there is an excel spreadsheet available that helps with managing your cap number.

People are asked to be as active as possible, writing short blogs about their team etc.

Any other questions PM myself or theman19.

yeah montreal was just taken man

pheonix
islanders
panthers

I would take the islanders. you would have tavares to build around.

we will be using nhl 11 to sim, the guys who sim have been doing it since 07 so they now what they are doing. trades, free agency, salary cap, you name it we got it.

biggest thing though is that you need to know NHL/AHL players and prospects quite well so guys don't try to rip you off in trades. you also need to be able to log in almost everyday to check your PM's, edit lines, make trades and signings etc.

if there is anything else you need to know just let me know.

if you are still interested I will take you through the process of signing up for the league and becoming a GM



also to everyone else there are still 3 teams available get them while they last!!!!!!!! This is a great community to join if your like me and are bored at school or work, there is nothing better than killing some time on WTP sim league.

I'm an IT guy so I have plenty of time to check websites like this while I wait for things to complete during the day.. I'd be reliable, do use ICQ, and am totally willing.


That is if any teams are available still. PM me here or send me an email logan@roonweb.com in case I forget to check this thread.. Thx

I was the NYI GM that had stepped down mid-season due to some circumstances with my wife's health.. Was away for a few and came back and had been removed. That was a neat website - definitely a lot of effort to put on but very neat.
