The Week That Was
The Brighter Side
Another week, another great 3 days of VGHL3s competition. And we are entering the halfway point. Some teams have only gotten stronger, and others are starting to fade into the darkness. Quite surprisingly however, we have yet to see a manager quit, or a team fold! This just shows how well Budz and co have been running this league, albeit with a couple of problems in the auto assign process. Now it has been fixed… Supposedly, though I do not mind stacking my tc allotment. That being said, we did have a manager be forced out by VG due to immaturity. Though, he is still a part of that team. Managers have been getting to the nitty gritty making trades, especially with the deadline coming up this week, needless to say, it has been hectic for everyone.
The Quack Attack is Back, Jack
To steal a quote from the great Les Averman, the Ducks are indeed making the West their conference. With the best record in the conference, a 6 point lead over the 2nd place Columbus Blue Jackets, and to top it off… A LEAGUE LEADING +102 goal differential. These guys are a different breed. The duo of Yung and Captials are the best in the conference, if not the league. The games keep coming, and the ounces of points just keep coming in. If this does not say Cup Contenders, I dont know what does! The only question that remains is… Who out of the West can stop the Quack Attack?
Split In Two
When we did our first recap, we discussed how close the West was. Now one by one, teams have disappeared out of the hunt for a playoff spot. 8 points separate 5th from 6th place. This division has become top heavy with Anaheim, Edmonton, and Columbus leading the way. The Jets, struggling at first have now started to find their feet and have begun the climb to chase Anaheim. The Wings, Vegas and Calgary have dipped below and have found themselves in Imagination Land. If they want to make an impact in this league, something needs to change, and change quickly.
