I like what you did with the draft picks especially. Great way to stock your cupboards.

I like how you got a team with mostly cheap guys who will have good re rates next season. Yes your season wasn't great this year, but you built for next year and your team should be a playoff team in the near future!

Yeah I guess I didn't fulfill simmer2's wishes very well -- his last message to me was "don't rebuild!!" -- but I felt it was best for the direction of the team to focus more on depth than high salary

How dare you not listen, in an online simulated hockey league that's for fun...geez.

While I don't necessarily agree with your changes, it looks like you have been one of the more active GM's and at the end of the day trading activity is what keeps the league going so in that respect well done.

Nice to see all of the moves, some wins, some losses, but you should be improved next year barring any sim hatred.
