Mover and Shaker - Week 8

As close as the battle was last week, it was even closer this time around. We had 2 teams tie with the amount they gained and with that comes the delivery of 1 free transaction each. Both 'Milltown Moose' and 'Flames' gained 9.5 points this week making them the winners. Miltown Moose drops from 13 moves used to 12 and the Flames goes from 12 to 11.

In addition to that, the monthly top spot winner goes to 'Greatness'. His team now drops to 17 moves used.

Update on Trades

It's been a while since I've done this, so I figured it was time to update the league on what's been happening in trades as of late.

Greatness for another month has been very busy with his trades, and that's where I'll begin this past months rundown. I originally thought to do this weekly, but now realize it's better to do on a monthly basis.

So, let's get started with one of the biggest trades this past month (if not THE) which involved making Ovechkin play on his 3rd team already:

Oct 16
To Greatness
Evgeni Malkin (Pit - C)
Ryan Getzlaf (Anh - C)
Cristobal Huet (Chi - G)

To Milltown Moose
Joe Sakic (Col - C)
Alexander Ovechkin (Was - LW)
Carey Price (Mon - G)

Both Malkin and Huet are no longer part of 'Greatness' as they were both traded soon after they were acquired. First Malkin in this trade...

Nov 5
To Greatness
Jason Spezza (Ott - C)
Ilya Kovalchuk (Atl - LW)

To Da Bous
Evgeni Malkin (Pit - C)
Jonathan CheechooDTD (SJ - RW)

... and then Huet in this one.

Nov 9
To Greatness
Michael Nylander (Was - C)
Marty Turco (Dal - G)

To Fuckin' FlameHeads
Jason Spezza (Ott - C)
Cristobal Huet (Chi - G)

Which is also an interesting trade because Nylander was only acquired from Greatness within the last month as well following this trade:

Rumour has it that the two players coming from Greatness were not happy about the team they were on and demanded to be traded. Weiss was soon traded away as well:

Nov 8
To Fuckin' FlameHeads
Alex Auld (Ott - G)

To Soylent Greene
Pavel Kubina (Tor - D)
Stephen Weiss (Fla - C)

Untrust was another busy team this month as well with 2 trades with 2 teams and one of them a fairly large one:

Oct 20
To No Homers!
Ray Whitney (Car - LW)
Andrej Meszaros (TB - D)
Cam Ward (Car - G)
And -2 Transactions to the other team

To Untrust
Shane Doan (Pho - LW,RW)
Mathieu SchneiderDTD (Atl - D)
Pascal LeclaireIR (Cls - G)
And +2 transactions from the other team.

The other; not so much...

Oct 19
To Untrust
Markus Naslund (NYR - LW)

To Milltown Moose
Saku Koivu (Mon - C)

Several other teams got into the trading spirit over the past month as well with a total of 10 other players being shipped to and fro. Here's a rundown:

Nov 5
To Ploughman's Posse
Patrick Marleau (SJ - C,LW)
Brian Campbell (Chi - D)

To Flames
Dan Boyle (SJ - D)
Kevin Weekes (NJ - G)

Nov 5
To Figgy
Henrik Zetterberg (Det - C,LW)
Mike Green (Was - D)

To Flames
Jeff Carter (Phi - C)
Jarome Iginla (Cgy - RW)

And that's it for this month. Be sure to tune in again next time around!

Mover and Shaker - Week 5

It's been a while since I posted this info here, but I want to start getting back in the habit of doing so... whether anyone reads it or not. I'm also going to start posting more in general here, so please keep an eye out for the updates.

The past few weeks saw 'Ploughman's Posse' win 2 free moves (Week 4 and Week 3) and 'LooseToothedMoose' winning 1 free one in Week 2. This week we have a new winner with 'Porter's Penguin's' gaining 19 points during the week. Here's the stats:

Full season stats here:

Because of this achievement, the team drops from 3 moves used to 2.


Until next week, Commish out!
