BREAKING: Minnesota Wild Fired...

...their uniform designer.

"You know what though, honestly, I'm not impressed. Not one bit. The rock stops here."

You mean the buck?

"That too. The team is playing like trash. I've already tried to trade them all and that hasn't helped one iota."

The Minnesota Wild GM has called an urgent news conference via Zoom to announce, well, that the rock stops here. That's ironic, because one of the things The Rock was known for winning..

"The old uniforms, the old "look" trash. I fired them all into the sun. That's that and if anyone has a problem with that they too can visit the sun."

The sun isn't really a place you can visit. Is that the joke?

"Do I look like I'm joking? Am I funny? Is this funny to you? Losing isn't fun. We needed to reenergize the team and in my opinion this yellow and green look, it's a massive improvement. You know what the last Minnesota NSHL team did that wore these colours? The North Stars - they won it all! They were underdogs. We're underdogs too!"

Looking at the standings, you're under just about everyone.

"Not funny. Anyways, there we have it. Yellow and green: the new colours of the Minnesota Wild."

22 Thoughts with Friedge

Starting today I'll be updating a "22 Thoughts" article with a variety of notes from my experiences throughout the league. I've got a few contacts and hear a few things that are worth sharing.

I'm hoping this will be a weekly thing but you know, sometimes life happens. Let's get on with it.

1
I haven't (yet) heard a bad word said about the league's recently unveiled plan to move to 24 teams. The NSHL Board will need to work hard to ensure we have the depth of players the league requires, and hopefully the goalie re-rate option, as well as the limit to goalies on a roster in the off-season aide in depth between the pipes.

2
I believe the league has "locked in" one of the two new GMs and is searching for a second. While they have a few potential names, the Commissioner is reportedly not "completely comfortable" with any one name for the 24th GM spot. We're a long ways away, so there's plenty of time.

3
While the identity of the 23rd GM is still unknown, speculation about their team name is growing. The league has been out of Columbus for quite a while and a return to the league's original Stanley Cup winning city could be interesting. The Commissioner also recently posted a Mighty Ducks logo - could that be a hint? My money's on Calgary or Vancouver or maybe Colorado - at least one more team north of the border and Colorado always seems to be an NSHL favourite.

4
Once we officially have 24 teams, that's an additional 12 draft picks each year to add to the NSHL Draft. More prospects and more assets to trade!

5
In saying that, I've heard from quite a few GMs since the last round of Expansion that we should be moving towards a 7 Round draft and the more I think about it, the more I agree. The off-season is plenty long enough to expand the draft by a few days (!!), and add more depth. Those who have no use for picks can/will trade them away to teams interested. I'm all for it.

6
Focusing on the existing teams again for a minute or two.. there are two teams in the league currently scheduled to go bankrupt as it currently stands: the Boston Bruins and Ottawa Senators. I suspect both will be able to get out of trouble with a move or two, especially once the league gets around to adding PSC winnings. Plus there's lots of time to make trades and cut payroll so I think we're in fairly good shape to not have a bankruptcy this year.

7
The Boston Bruins' recently trimmed over $7,000,000 off their payroll this year in a massive deal with Toronto. In lieu of the savings this year, the Bruins locked into Alex Pietrangelo long-term. Boston has traditionally heavily benefited from trades with the Leafs, so we'll see if AP can turn it around in Beantown.

8
The next move for the Bruins will likely be to find a home for Vladimir Sobotka's $4M 1 year deal which will likely be easier and easier as the season progresses.

9
The Senators also shed a bunch of payroll recently and found themselves on a mini winning streak to boot. The team will be testing the market for Wayne Simmonds and if their record takes a nose-dive, likely Carey Price as well. They've already tried to waive Keith Yandle's $5M+ but found no takers. Again, Yandle will be an easier move as the season moves along, however Simmonds and Price might be a little bit trickier.

10
The Red Wings were the latest team to "purge" and haved moved on from Steven Stamkos, Evgenii Dadonov and Tyson Barrie in a clear attempt at moving further along in their rebuild. It's expected Michael Del Zotto and Marcus Foligno are next, while recently added Alexander Ovechkin is likely also already on the block with pending UFAs Mike Hoffman & T.J. Brodie. I've heard Elias Lindholm has been discussed with a team or two as well, and after moving Nino, that shouldn't be surprising.

11
The New York Rangers' PR team sent out an "open to interpretation" Tweet that suggests moves may be in the works once their current 7 game winning streak ends. Given the Blackhawks' move to add Stamkos, the Rangers' hand could be forced if they want to compete. Luckily for the Rangers they have a handful of expiring contracts that to offer including Phil Kessel, Reilly Smith, Henrik Lundqvist and Pekka Rinne.

12
I need to quickly clarify on the previous thought: No, I do not believe by any stretch of the imagi-yoghurt-nation that the Rangers are or will be "sellers". I think they may use their pending UFAs to bring in additional assets or if absolutely needed, to match salaries (not like money is a concern though..)

13
Sticking with the Rangers for a minute here, aside from Laine, Strome and Keller, I really don't think anyone on the roster will be off-limits when (if) their win streak comes to an end. KOTR legend Evander Kane included, and I think he'd attract some attention given his affordable contract ($3M). After a long run of strapping it on, the Rangers need to fill in their back-end. I think Boston's Jared Spurgeon, Detroit's Michael Del Zotto and Toronto's Connor Hellebuyck being prime targets.

14
The NHL Canucks franchise is in some trouble with COVID and risk not playing out the rest of the season. Through an earlier release from the BoD all NHL stats for ratings will be "normalized" to the standard 82 game season. So, just like a player missing 20 games from injury in a regular year, the stats get pro-rated so anyone with Canucks' NHL players need not worry.

15
As many around the league eagerly anticipate the return of NSHL Auctions from both a buying and a stream of revenue generation, the Commissioner's office is strongly considering making changes to the format, I'm told. The "open bidding" method is definitely preferred and the changes could come by way of releasing all items at once and giving a week cut-off time.

16
I'm also hearing that "less is more" when it comes to the overall number of Auctions, which I am sort of in line with. I think there are a lot of teams that really benefit from the sharing of wealth, but I also think there's really only a handful of teams who ever participate in the actual bidding so all items end up in the same homes time and time again.

17
I must say I'm really a fan of players earning their spots in the All-Star Classic. This slight change has taken from an event that very few appeared to care about to one to watch for over the course of the season as names get added to the rosters. I'm curious to see the format of the events themselves, although I suspect in the first year it might be a very familiar setup to what we're used to with two pro teams, two minor league teams and perhaps a YoungStars type challenge as well.

18
If you asked me to name a team currently in the post-season picture that I don't think will be for very long it'd be the expansion St. Louis Blues who are already dropping down the standings and are losers of two in a row. I know, I know with GM Mitchell and his "magic touch" this prediction will come back to bite me.

There is some method to my madness as I believe the Blues have a roster full of reasonable contracts and players that have performed well. I can see these being key assets for the stretch drive for teams with any sized bank account and I believe the Blues can easily shift for prospects, picks or bigger pieces for contention down the road.

19
Same question but who is on the outside that will be in contention? The Flyers seems too obvious a choice and a single win and they jump right back in. I may sound loonie tunes but I'd put my money on Minnesota. The Wild GM has already frequently expressed frustration with his team and has been active in trading to try and improve things. The team is all-in and I think they can end ahead of the Seattle Karens, the Vegas Golden Knifes and possibly even the Bruins.

20
Getting back to Auctions for just a second, I have been informed by two sources that one of the forthcoming Auctions is a potential prelude to what could become an NSHL staple as the league looks at adding Medical Facilities for teams. There's a hashtag for you folks, #NSHLMedFacs.

21
Friedge, what's a Medical Facility?

I'm not entirely sure to be completely honest. I wish I had more here to divulge and I promise to continue snooping around for you..

22
Last one and this may be controversial or it may be a "thanks Captain Obvious".. but, here it is:

Someone with time on their hands will quickly prove me wrong or right, but in my hearts of hearts I believe that Mika Zibanejad is the best player the NSHL has ever seen either by the time he retires or he may already be close in stats.

I really hope Chicago management still returns my calls after potentially raising the RFA value on their star.

Take care of yourselves.


Looking Ahead: The BoD Vision for NSHL21

It seems like we only just started on NSHL20 not too long ago, so why start bringing up NSHL21 - it's ages away!?

Answer: This is what the Board of Directors does. Their work begins well in advance of an actual change or event taking place. If change is to happen for NSHL21 (it is), work on any change needs to begin sooner than later - especially where every team is impacted. We can't (won't) have a bunch of nincompoops running the show or the progress we've made wouldn't have occurred.

So, what does this "Board" have in store?

WE'RE EXPECTING (TWINS)!

Consider this formal warning: unless something crazy happens (crazier than say a global pandemic), the league's intention for NSHL21 is to grow by two to 24 teams.

With 22 teams more-or-less fully active, the league plans to expand by two franchises in the off-season which means that as per the NSHL Rulebook, all teams will be able to protect up to 13 players with all players that qualify as rookies and/or prospects in NSHL21 being exempt. Incoming teams will be able to draft one player from every existing team in the Expansion Draft.

The BoD also will make allowances for any team(s) that may go bankrupt or become otherwise vacant ahead of NSHL21. In this scenario a team/teams would be contracted through a Dispersal Draft and then would re-enter as additional expansion clubs under new management to keep us at 24.

For many GMs, we've been here before not too long ago.

This is another benefit to getting the news early: all teams have time to thoughtfully plan out their protection lists well in advance of the league's Trade Deadline.

As for new GMs, there are a couple of GMs actively waiting on a team and who would likely be interested in coming aboard. However, given the time delay things could change. If you know someone who would be a good fit, feel free to let the Commissioner know to make arrangements on proceeding further (referral bonuses are a thing).

Also: The ST Fix

During both NHL and NSHL re-rates this upcoming off-season every single skater's STrength rating is going to be updated independently from the typical adjustments.

Since the NSHL developed their own rating system, players' ST rating has always been quite low (40s and 50s typically). Players who were brought into the league under the "original" third-party rating system have higher ST ratings, despite it being a category that really shouldn't fluctuate that much year after year (STrength is not really something you think about as stat-based).

Without over-complicating: ST is based on a base level rating which goes up or down based on a player's height and weight compared to the league average. Taller than the average height? ST goes up. Weigh less than the average weight? ST goes down. Bigger = stronger, smaller = weaker. Makes sense?

The issue the BoD found is the bottom-end and top-end are extremely far apart in ratings when the difference from a smaller player to a bigger player is typically well less than a foot and maybe an increase of 25-3 lbs but is worth 30+ points towards ST.

The new ST will tighten the window so all skaters are more evenly aligned (for most players, the ST will see a significant boost at zero cost).

Both of these announcements should be seen as massive progressive steps forward to improving our league overall, and it certainly won't stop there!


The Star Studded RFA Market

As one GM put it recently this year's pending Restricted Free Agent market is "the best thing since well, I don't really have a comparison ready but it's pretty good from what I can tell!"

Pretty. Good. From what I can tell.

Are you not sold yet?

The upcoming RFA market has a plethora of prime-aged superstars who have no choice but to test the market. No, we're not just talking players coming off their entry-level contracts (ELCs) as there are allowances for them to re-sign pre-market until they're 25.

We are talking players who end this season 25 and older whose contracts are expiring and will certainly have other teams interested. The problem for many will be one of two things:

#1 - The draft pick stock to put together an offer-sheet.

#2 - The money to put together a tempting enough offer to be worthwhile.

The former is self-explanatory: to make an offer-sheet you need draft pick capital. If you don't have draft picks, you're not a player in RFA. It's that simple.

The latter is where it gets a whole lot more interesting as creativity (as well as money, of course) reign supreme. We've all seen the lame "there is zero risk in this OS and it is exactly what I'm willing to sign" offer-sheets in the past that don't even make the rights holder think twice. These offers can be categorized as #MatchGame for the sake of this article - there's no way in hell the rights holder lets the player walk.

#MatchGame Candidates

For one reason or another, these are some of the names that are or should be #MatchGame candidates (numbers in brackets denote expected age when free agency opens):

Nothing surprising on this list. Some of the best players in the league in both ratings and performance whose teams will find a way to bring them back one way or another.

The Boston Bruins and Quebec Nordiques are in the toughest spot financially of the others in this group but Pastrnak and Barkov are core players worth building around so its expected they are back in NSHL21.

#ShouldBeBack Candidates

Lets move on to a list of players who should be back with their teams, but the right offer might just have them taking the compensation or making a trade:

Some of the players on this list could be had via the right offer-sheet for a variety of reasons: the OS is signing bonus heavy and the GM is reluctant or unable to match the cash (Draisaitl, Barrie, Foligno, Jarry, Bjorkstrand, Fabbri, Horvat, Duclair). For others the OS might just seem crazy for the value the player brings to the team in their current state (Ehlers, Ekman-Larsson, Morrissey, Ekblad, Reinhart). For others, the compensation they'd get for one of the players may have better value down the road - and yes, keeping in mind that compensation received during an off-season cannot be recycled into compensation in the same off-season. The options here include Nylander, Trocheck, Belpedio and Hagg.

#TheRightOSSeeYa

The final category lists players where teams are believed to be hoping the right OS comes along so they can get something for their player(s). For the most part these players are older RFAs whose new deals will expire into unrestricted free agency. For others, the player's production might just not be there for them and so compensation is the way to go.

This final list also provides the league with a list of players to keep an eye on ahead of the Trade Deadline. Just about everyone here is going to test the market unless their team ends up with a "Get Out Of Jail Free" card via #NSHLAuctions or some other means.

This final list also provides a list of names that teams could watch for as the RFA market progresses and compensation gets cheaper and cheaper.

An interesting wrinkle here is that we're miles away from the Trade Deadline and even further away from the RFA Market so while the names on this list are unlikely to not appear when "OS Season" begins, the teams beside many will change. As those team logos change, so too does their potential 'category' as to where they appear to fit as RFAs.


On the Eve of PSC20

The NSHL20 edition of the Point Scoring Challenge is set to commence with its first round of games on Monday, officially kicking off the tournament. The field of 64 players will narrow down over the course of six rounds for nearly a month to determine who will become PSC Champion.

Last year's winner is back in the tournament with the #1 seed as Evgenii Dadonov (DET) is hopeful to defend his title once again, while runner-up and inaugural KOTR Champion Evander Kane (NYR) has returned and is the #2 seed.

Rounding out the Top Four are the Islanders' lethal duo of Tyler Seguin (the defending KOTR Champion) and Taylor Hall (defending 'Rocket' Richard winner) who presently sit tied for first in league points as of Sunday night. Leading goal scorer Andrew Shaw (VGK) is also in the tournament at #8 seed, appearing in Bracket 1 along with Dadonov.

This year the league held a mini play-in competition to see who the #63 and #64 seeds would be. Tyler Ennis (FLA) and Jakub Voracek (OTT) earned the final two seeds with Sunday's games and are in tough match-ups against the returning finalists. Voracek went to tie-break to knockout Kyle Turris (EDM) and won 1-0 on goals scored.

All teams are reminded that the tie-breaking procedure is Goals, Assists and then +/- over the games played in the round. If the two players remain tied after that, BOTH players are eliminated. If the players tie 0-0, BOTH players are eliminated without tie-breaker.

The ONLY round that will go to extra games if necessary is the FINALS.

The full bracket will be updated daily following each #NSHLUpdate and can be found here.


You'll Have to Earn Your Place in Ottawa

Earlier this year the league confirmed that this year's All-Star Classic will not take place mid-year as it has traditionally been held. The event this year will take on a new form and be held following the awarding of the Stanley Cup.

"Holding the event mid-year may not make sense for us going forward.." the Commissioner told the media on Friday afternoon. "while the event can be a lot of fun for the 4 or 5 GMs involved, it halts the season for a few days for everyone else and teams lose momentum, and potentially, interest. We think adding the Classic to our off-season schedule will not only add an event to a time when there isn't much else to do, but it also gives us the opportunity to add in post-season recognition and Awards consideration in the mix."

Earning All-Star Spots Confirmed

Following re-confirmation of the event being held in the "off-season" the Commissioner also confirmed that rather than being voted on, roster spots in the Classic would be determined at least in part by achievements throughout the year.

"For one, the Final Four in the upcoming PSC will be guaranteed spots at the Classic, as will the top performer in this and every stage of KOTR." the Commissioner added.

For defencemen and goalies who most very likely will NOT be granted spots by way of the PSC and KOTR, the league intends to review the top defencemen in POINTS and the top goaltender in WINS at each interval where a forward is named and take the highest and next highest in line at those particular times. When the PSC Final Four are named All-Stars, so too will the top blue-liner in POINTS and the top goalie in WINS.

This year's All-Star Classic is set to be held in Ottawa, home of the Senators who earned the event by having the lowest bank balance at the end of last season. "I think maybe the Commish took me too literally when I said I had a lot to earn this year to catch-up to other teams financially. Now everyone's going to have to earn their place at the Classic this off-season. I'm really looking forward to it." Senators' GM Baxter commented.


Teams Terrified of GM Mitchell's Return

If Opening Day Waivers has taught us anything it's this:

#1 When a former successful GM returns to the fold, GMs take note and their fear shows through their actions. The expansion St. Louis Blues have been targeted before they've even played a game.

GM Mitchell has had his roster pillaged and everyone involved should be prepared for whatever reprocussions are to come from the returning Stanley Cup champion.

#2 GMs vastly undervalue the value of certain players on their roster as we exit the off-season. Claims are being traded for multiple draft picks (!!) plus the waiver fee for guys a team is willing to essentially give away (for $500k but still..).

Make no mistake, this is NOT a bad thing. A GM can be prepping their off-season roster for ODW and shop a guy around, but everyone knows the game and (hopefully) can count pro roster sizes. If I can potentially land a guy off you for $500k, no way am I offering a pick or multiple picks before the doors open. Once the doors are open, well then its open season and anything goes - as we've seen.

If I had to pick a team to watch for "significant" moves early in the year I would go with the Boston Bruins. They've built a roster with several similar player types and I can see them breaking it down (partially) if things don't quite go there way out of the gate.

To me, Marko Dano, Matt Calvert and Magnus Paajarvi stand out as movable parts up front that would have high value returns. There might be a market for Luke Schenn if the Bruins consider moving on from his $11.1M 3 year deal - but the price tag and length might be a little daunting.

A name or two from Tyler Myers, Jared Spurgeon, Torey Krug, Kris Russell and Marc-Edouard Vlasic will also likely be on the move once GM Spencer sinks his dentures into a preferred blue-line make up.

One reasonable trading partner for Boston that could make a whole lot of sense could be the Ottawa Senators - once again depending how their season kicks off. You know David Krejci would be of interest in Beantown, could he and Wayne Simmond's $7M+ be used to lure Luke Schenn to the Canadian capital?

Another fairly obvious option to tango with the Bruins, despite nabbing Cal Clutterbuck off of ODW from them could be the Blues. The first year club has plenty of roster space and bankroll for any of the players mentioned so the only concern would be meeting Boston's demands on return.

For what it's worth I think we could totally see Claude Giroux and Matt Calvert in a St. Louis uniform before too long. With Bergeron and Pageau the Bruins are set down the middle and could potentially benefit by moving Giroux and adding a player/contract like Calvert's to maximize return.

What's that return look like?

I think four years of Zach Bogosian at $500k would be an attractive start for the Bruins. Add in a Joe Morrow, Frank Vatrano type to appeal to the "Bruins homer" in GM Spencer and I think the savings in contracts coming off the books would go a long way to sign-off here.

Early days and lots of options - let's see where we land in a few weeks!


They Came, They Saw, They Strapped It On!

It happened. It's real.  In the immortal words of the arena announcer following the Hurricanes' 5-1 drubbing of the Lightning:  "The winners... and NEWWWWWW NSHL BELT Champions ... the Carolina Hurricanes!!!!"

The Hurricanes completed their journey after an impressive round-robin  during NSHLX - The Extended Version, they marched through the tournament rounds and absolutely crushed the Lightning in the final Best-of-Three.  Over two games Carolina scored 10 goals and allowed only 1.

"I am so happy to have come here today. This victory, this is a load off my mind. The boys really got me where I wanted to be today, where I wanted US to be and now we're going to go into the locker room together and we'll #StrapItOn and celebrate with a little bit of the bubbly!" Hurricane GM Hamm told reporters during the on-ice celebration.

The tournament win gives the Hurricanes a huge momentum boost heading into the season, but that's when the real games get played and a failure to climb higher using that momentum could negate the overall impact of this victory.

Meanwhile in the MSHL, the Rochester Americans bounced back in Game Two and will force a deciding Game Three back in Braapton on Wednesday.
