Bryce Takes Over as 40th NHLP GM
After an extensive search for a new GM the league has officially announced GM
Bryce will take over the franchises in Las Vegas, Atlantic City and Portland.
Bryce now becomes the 40th GM in league history, the first since GM Mark in
2012-13. The NHLP is entering its 30th season and the GM's throughout the
league know what Bryce will face in his first year. "It is really
difficult early on" stated Muddy Capone, who has seen many GM's come and go over
the years, "Many new GM's have difficulty in the early years until they start to
understand the player values and how they relate to the many facets of the
league." All GM's hope Bryce is a huge asset for the league which
functions best with 12 GM's. Bryce will take over NHLP teams who have
combined for three NHLP Championships, including Las Vegas who won Cups in 1995
and 1998 under GM Leo and Portland who won the 2007 Cup, GM Chad's second.
GM Vinnie left Bryce with a difficult spot to start, drafting 8th, 33rd and 35th
overall. "Bryce is going to be tested early" said GM Scott, "I wish him
all the best and hope he has the success this league seemingly has never had
from that twelfth position." Welcome to the best hockey pool in the world.
Matt Starts Cup Holder Versus
The third season of the Cup Holder Pool (CHP) is set to launch Wednesday,
October 2nd as Matt starts off defending his Championship with his St Louis
Blues. Everythign went right for Matt last season on his way to a 380
point win, the largest win of all NHLP sides. If everyone is back, Jr and
Scottie are needed to pick expansions teams from the 6 available teams, Chicago,
Dallas, Detroit, New Jersey, NY Rangers or Vancouver. Of course if any new
people join, they too select a team from this group all on a first come first
serve basis. It is hard to get a game for the Cup and if the Blues win
their opening game they are set to play Dallas, who Jr, Scottie or anyone new
can start with.
