Mostly EHM notes

Got a lot of stuff for EHM. I actually started a different name for want of never being fired.
So now, these are the teams;
Washington- The Capitals are my new NHL team, and actually, they are at 5-6-1 to start the year. I acquired Chris Drury again, and Stu Barnes from Dallas in trades. I improved the defense, getting Anton Volchenkov and Greg Zanon from waivers. I also signed Alex Semin, and he has helped. Recalling Kris Beech over Rico Fata was a great choice. Jeff Hamilton was a sound waiver claim as well.
Drummondville- Unwilling to have another losing QMJHL team, and liking the sound of Derick Brassard, Guillame Latendresse, Per-Oliver Pelettier, and Alexandre Demers, I chose the Voltiguers. To start the season, we are 13-8-0.
Everett- Again, unwilling to have a losing WHL team, I chose the Silvertips due to Peter Mueller, Zach Hamill, and Leland Irving. I also found out that Brady Calla was a great player. I acquired Martin Hanzal for, essentially, a player way below his standards. Hanzal hasn't exploded with offense, but is doing well. We started with an 11-6-1 record.
Sudbury- Unable to resist Nick Foligno, I chose the Wolves for my OHL team. They also have Marc Staal, Benoit Pouliot, and Mark Versteeg-Lywn. We have been excellent at the start, going 13-6-2.
Norfolk- Expecting them to be successful, the Admirals haven't performed to my expectations. However, with players Martin Tuma, Reed Low, and Duncan Keith, we have time to improve upon a 2-6-1 start. Expectations are high for this AHL team.
Alaska- I went to a new level, choosing the Aces for my ECHL team. We are doing fine, with Derek Gustafson, Joe Talbot, and Mike Stuart leading the way to an acceptable 2-3-1 start.

Goal of the Day- Since I didn't link to it when I first wrote about amazing goals, I will link to Alexander Ovechkin's 'The Goal'. It's really amazing, and if you see it on YouTube then you can see some of his other great goals as well.

That's all today.
