Mover and Shaker - Week 18

It was quite the battle this week with teams working very hard to move up in the standings.  With all the hard work, only 6 teams however, managed to gain in points but the battle between these 6 are what's impressive.  Each of them were at most 2 points away from each other and two of them tied with 7 points up.  In the end though, Figgy managed a half a point more than anyone else and with this 7.5 points during the week, he wins the Mover and Shaker and a free transaction.  He drops from 13 used to 12.

Mover and Shaker - Week 17

With the start of a new month comes the start of 4 new Mover and Shaker awards, beginning as usual with the first.  In this new month we see some teams that were close to the top falling freely and some other teams who seemingly were endlessly caught at bottom begin to rise.  In the world of the WTHL, nothing is stagnant.

The results this week featured 50% rising in points and the other half dropping.  Of the half that rose in points this week, 2 broke double digits.  The Killbot Factory managed 14.5 points during the week and that was good enough to beat out Milltown Moose for the prize, who placed 2nd with 10.5 points.  Not bad all around, but the winner gets the free move and with that Killbot's transactions used drop to 15 from 16.

Mover and Shaker Week 16 - Team of the Month Four

Mover and Shaker Week 16

For the 2nd week in a row, King FlameHeads come out strong and win the prize.  With a gain of 16 points during this week, this team blew away the competition.  With a gain of 27 points over a 2 week span, the KF find themselves in 12th spot.  With the win today, this teams transactions drop from 12 used to 11.

Team of the Month Four

After commanding this award all of the 08-09 season, Greatness has not won this award once this year... until now.  After being on top for a lot of this month (3 times out of 4 Sundays) and averaging a 1.5 placement during that time, it looks like last years champ is making a statement... albiet, this week he finished in 3rd.  Will the champ stay in the running?  Who knows, but with the win this month, his max transactions drop from 19 to 18.

Survey Two Results

Gonna try to make this short winded...

Let's get the Goalie topic out of the way...

It looks like public opinion is still strong with the changing of the 'Goalie Situation'.  Only 2 people think that nothing should be done, so we will be doing something.  The next time we discuss this topic, it will be a final vote however.  It looks like at this point we will be switching to percentages for both GA and SV AND removing either the G or L stat from the goalies.

All the images can be clicked (or rubbed) to enlarge (and see the numbers).

The next hottest thing was the 'Franchise Player'.  How did GM's feel with regards to interest in this?

But what will a Franchise Player mean, the GM's were asked:

And what about the risk of taking a Franchise player?  Do I HAVE to keep him for a certain time period, the GM's are posed.

And are these 'Franchise Player' part of my 8 Keepers or what?

And so ends the tale of the GM's and their Franchise player.  Next survey will be a final vote on a 'Franchise Player' is one of your 8 Keepers who can be kept for 5 years instead of 3, with the clause that if you select him, you must keep him until the end of the season before taking another.

The GM's were all then asked about Money... and because I'm getting lazy, simply, it looks like we'll be upping it to 25 bucks next year with a bump of money in 3 prizes instead of 4 give outs. 

As for the waiver question, though the Commish wants change, the waiver wire will remain at 1 full day instead of an increase.

Other than that, VERY few liked the Head to Head idea.  It will not be brought up again... by the Commish.

Oh, and Untrust is the lucky winner in the draw!  2 moves to him.

Now, back to the league!!

Mover and Shaker - Week 14

Half the league gained points this week, which is a fairly good showing.  Unfortunately for most though, only one team broke double digits in their gains with a total gain of 17 points.  That team was Flames and because of this achievement he is now in 2nd place overall and as further reward of such a strong effort, his max transactions drop from 8 to 7.
