Eliminating Bloat As We Continue Having X

Whoa whoa whoa. Where's my city!?

Only a day into X and the league file has had a "drastic" change where the city names have been removed from team names. This is mainly drastic in appearance but has no impact on the sim itself.

But why!?

Let's face it, if you're bloated while participating in X it's just not as enjoyable an experience. Cutting out city names eliminates words on the screen and makes everything from Transactions to Boxscores to the mobile viewing experience a little bit better. It's a pilot project that may or may not work and simply comes down to user experience / feedback.

Sure, teams are organized in alphabetical order under the new format, but if that "learning curve" is the only takeaway from better/easier aesthetics, it may well be worthwile.

Let's see.

Let's Talk About X, Baby!

On Friday afternoon the NSHL released the round-robin portion of the NSHL22 X schedule which it hopes will commence with Day 1 on Tuesday.

"I can say with confidence as I speak for many of you I'm sure: I'd really like to have X as soon as possible. It doesn't have to be anything that lasts a long time, just enough to get comfortable and get the juices flowing."

This year's round-robin portion of X will extend through 10 games, with each team playing a home and away against every other team in their division.

X Playoff Round

Following the completion of the X round-robin the top 2 teams in each division will advance to the X Playoff Round, while Team 3 will host Team 6 and Team 4 will host Team 5 to qualify.

The X Playoffs will continue with best hosts worst in a single-elimination tournament through Divisions and then each Conference and then the Final for the NSHL22 X crown.

Rewards For Having X

All NSHLX Playoff teams will earn $1M for qualifying, $2M for reaching the Division Final, $4M for the Conference Final and $7.5M for the Final. The winner after having the most X (wins) will take home an additional $5M cash.

MSHLX earnings will be in the same format as above but at 50% values.

If you don't yet have full rosters to be able to have X on Tuesday, it's certainly advisable as it's best to be safe and have X with more men ready to jump in as required.

AHL Goalie Mix-Up

It was recently brought to the league's attention that a number of goalies created under AHL-based ratings were accidentally signed to NSHL deals.

Where possible, the league has converted these deals to one-way AHL deals. The rest of the incorrect signings have been released outright at no cost to the team who made the signing. Any signing bonuses have been refunded to teams where applicable.

This afternoon the Commissioner converted goalies eligible for AHL deals only to ALL CAPS in their names whether still UFA or on rosters. This should make it easier to pinpoint which goalies are AHL and which are not as we move forward.

The league apologizes for any headaches this has caused.

SHOW -US- THE MONEY!

A short sighted overspend led to last year's Montreal Canadiens vanishing into thin air. Now that the page has turned with the expansion Anaheim Mighty Ducks and a new Canadiens franchise in place, overspending (to some degree) should be welcomed around the league.

When the league dispersed NSHL21 Canadiens' players, it came to an agreement with the NSHLPA that the first year contract value of any players who would not otherwise have become UFA would be divvied up amongst returning clubs - funded by the league itself. The intention of course, is to encourage teams to spend freely and get those released players' repaid handsomely.

This is a very similar premise to a casino handing you a $100 chip when you enter - of course you're going to take it for a spin and hope to do some damage. Has it been mentioned that the NSHL22 All-Star Classic is in Vegas this year? Come one, come all!

So, as free agency continues, the league continues to tally the signings of the NSHL21 Canadiens' players and will be dispersing the total to the 23 returning teams ahead of NSHLX.

All-Star Classic Heading to Sim City!

GM Pete was on-hand on Tuesday evening for a major announcement surrounding the NSHL's Vegas Golden Knights.

"Pete, your team is broke af .. as the kids say! But when you're the "brokest" in the NSHL, we do what we can to help you out and that means bringing the end of season All-Star Classic to your backyard to help you raise some money." The Commissioner explained.

"Do I have to move to Montreal after like that other guy who cried small market and then no-showed?" A fair question.

No. No is the answer.

GM Pete would go on to proclaim that he would definitely not go into hiding for the 'Classic' and would happily welcome all 23 GMs to "Sim City". Vegas offers something for everyone - but primarily in this case hopefully that means revenue!

The exact format of the NSHL22 All-Star Classic will be determined over the course of the year, but we know that GM Pete will be taking on Stanley Cup Champion GM Jeff in the NSHL event. GM Terry will square-off against the NSHL22 MSHL Champion GM at the MSHL level.

"We're excited to have GM Pete and Vegas host this event. As former KOTR winner Evander Kane once said 'Roll the dice and let's see if the gamble pays off!'"
