Dropped another 21 points to the minors to unload Iginla and has left
himself very tight, only 2 points up on 5th with the injured Pronger.
Must have Chicago make it for Kane is the leader and the hope. If
GM< Scott gets in can run with a Chicago or Vancouver matchup with
either Philadelphia or Boston which are very realistic (in his eyes).

injury will undoubtedly tie GM Scott's hands. If he can get in and
Pronger is back, no damage. This team is good, but it isn't great.
Can it be?

type numbers, but not to shabby. Hitting stride with a season high
CTR. Kane is now smoking hot and GM Scott is never finished.
Has Oshie and maybe Yandle or Iginla to move yet, but it is always nice
to be moving up late in the season and not the other way.
||1303 (L12 - 876)
Tanguay and 22
points for Pronger. No that is a gutsy move, but the CTR is at a
season's high. That is helped in a big way by Kaberle going to
Boston. We like how it is taking shape. Still 20 points to
work with and a higher scoring team then all teams behind in the East.
On average, every NHLP team should have 1 scorer in the top 24 in
overall league scoring. This team has 3 of the top 27, so the
Flyer will still score down the stretch. Don't think GM Scott is
finished. He is never finished.
||1092 (H10 -

in the NHLP in points, but not a very intimidating playoff team. Until Kaberle is dealt, there will be doubt,
on whether or not he will waive his no trade
clause. First overall pick Kane must be giving GM Scott a lot of
doubt himself. Scott was up in the air until announcing Kane as
his first pick, passing on Stamkos, who now leads the league in scoring. Chicago is not even ranked and with
only 28 games to play, must catch 3 teams who are ahead of them in the
Western Standings. 28 games becomes 20 and then 10 in a hurry. Oshie's low number is important in moving a high non playoff once GM
Scott's is able to figure out who they all are.
962 (H10 - 1244, L12 - 876)
Is there a hotter player in the NHLP than former first round pick, 6'6",
230 pounder, and leagues high-scoring defensemen, Yandle? NO! With 17
points for the month of January, no one was hotter (Daniel Sedin and
Bergeron were as hot with 17 each themselves). GM Scott added Tanguay
for Enstrom, in a sideways move, and has Oshie back scoring to help the
offense. This team has a lot of fringe players and a huge question mark
in Kaberle. Will he move and if so where? Certainly what you see is
not the end team, by any means, yet.
||1244 (L12 - 876)
even though far behind Halifax (Shawn) and Pittsburgh (Chad) in the CTR.
Will Kaberle be traded will be a question right there. Still two
non playoff players in Oshie and Kaberle and by the looks of things,
this might be Atlanta's last time rated as they nose dive in the NHL
||1160 (L12 - 876)
GM Scott has
started his climb in the CTR to a season's high. Adding both
Ehrhoff and Oshie at the Winter Meeting was favored by the CTR, even
though he gave 14 points and Liles. Still up 19 points on fifth
and only Kaberle, who Scott feels will get traded at the NHL Deadline,
not rated yet. Scoring is not an issue here but does have a number
of fringe playoff players such as Kane, Enstrom and Yandle.
||864 (H11 -

hasn't hurt the teams position in the East, actually gaining on the 5th
and 6th teams for the month even with Kane's goose egg. NEW YEAR'S
WISH: Kaberle gets dealt out of Toronto to Vancouver, Washington,
or San Jose. Maybe? After this GM Scott would hope for a
single match or maybe Dallas, Colorado or Chicago to also go deep.
A healthy Kane can mean points to give away in the New Year and no
doubt, GM Scott will be in the giving mood as always!
||918 (H11 -
1123, L12 - 876)
GM Scott has
taken the first step to rehabilitation by admitting he does have a
trading problem. Many GM's have came forward to support GM Scott
while he gets help for this disease. Scott said in an interview
that he gets a 'high' off making transactions and that he'd drop someone
today and add him tomorrow for the satisfaction of knowing he made a
move. "I'd spend my last dollar for that high. Trading is an
addiction and I am working through it. Talking to GM's Ryan,
Charlie, Mike and Ray have helped" stated Scott, "Seeing how they go
through the season without doing anything at all, has made me see it is
possible to succeed in this league with the Draft and see ya approach."
Scott then added, "Maybe succeed was a bad choice of words." (“We
all go a little mad sometimes” - Psycho)

How serious is
Kane's injury? Markov's leg bent like that and he is gone for the
season! Kane is a young fellow, but it was an ugly bend and GM
Scott will be holding his breath until he hears the extent of the
damage. After all that, Chicago is the lowest rated team in the
West, only rated due to the kindness of the CTR, who's formula does not
drop teams out of the CTR Rankings (NHL Standings), but includes teams that can come
back in the NHL Standings, by grabbing average points, in their games at
hand. Teams behind Chicago will pass them, via games at hand, unless
Chicago starts winning! A big waiver has led to a season high
CTR, thanks mainly to the Dallas Star's top seed. The Stars are
holding down the second seed in the West, behind only Detroit and GM
Scott now has Benn to compliment Eriksson.
||934 (H8 - 1025, L12 - 876)
with double digit points and 12 points up on 5th with only 5 players
rated. St. Louis dropped seeds, hurting McDonalds and Steens
rating and Alfredsson now joins Ennis as the unrated players. Kane
has moved into a ranked position, as have half the teams in the West
This team can score, but clearly nothing too exciting in the way of a
||1025 (L - 876)
Five of the top
8 rated CTR teams are from the East Division. Although only a
single point in the Eastern standings behind Halifax (Shawn), the Flyer
aren't even half the CTR ranking. "I am glad we don't have to get
out of the Division against him this year" said GM Scott. The
Flyer have a season high CTR without any ranking at all from Kane, as
Chicago is technically 14th out of 15 teams in the NHL Eastern
Conference. Alfredsson and Voracek have moved into higher seeds
while Ennis joins Kane as unranked.
||876 (H14 - 905)
Isn't in the
same class as Halifax (Shawn) even though just three points behind in
the East. Lead by Steen and McDonald thanks to the top ranked
Blues who just don't allow goals. Kane is chipping in, but
Alfredsson and Ennis, will need to be shipped out if Ottawa and Buffalo
don't wake up. Will continue to battle for second in the East.
Alfredsson and Ennis are pulling the number down as neither is rated at
this time. Led by Kane and Eriksson, thanks to a hot start by Dallas.
Will continue to improve position over the teams behind in the East who
can't keep up in the scoring department.
