A quiet day in the NHL. I would write about Karlis Skrastins breaking Tim Horton's record for consecutive games played by a defenseman, but I've seen 4 different stories about it already. I will, however, update my Eastside Hockey Manager game.
Penguins- I forgot to actually tell how different my defense is now. The old defense's names included Gonchar, Cairns, Eaton, Melichar, Orpik, Whitney, and Lannon. Now, it has a better group of names, such as Salvador, Gleason, Tverdovsky, Hutchinson, Hnidy, Salei, and still Whitney. Gonchar returned to Washington. Cairns went back to Florida. Eaton is still with me, but in the minors. I'm not entirely sure what I did with Melichar, but he went somewhere else. Orpik is also in Florida. Lannon is in the minors, but at times has wanted to leave. Ryan Whitney remains the only one to have truly lasted the whole time, with one small visit to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, when I thought that Eaton could remain a strong player. Now, I am considering sending him to the ECHL. Kristopher Letang will get a strong chance to join, as will Jordan Staal for the offense.
Rimouski- Speaking of Letang, I just acquired him from Val d'Or. Hopefully, if Letang does not make it to the NHL full time, then he will be the first of many acquisitions to improve this team. Not much otherwise has happened to Rimouski.
Prince Albert- Another big trade here, as Martin Hanzal, farther from his NHL debut than Letang, came to the Raiders for Cedrick Mckinnon, a 2nd round pick in the WHL bantam draft, and whom was only playing in a something like the HRJL, which was really small. I plan to acquire a key goaltender.
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton- Well, everything that happens with this team depends on the Penguins, except that Chris Ferraro may decide to sign with the AHL counterpart instead of the NHL group.
If anything else significant happens today, I'll make another post.
