PostCOMMISSIONERS BLOG SEASON 5

So we are now off to our 5th season of the WTP New Era. Since day 1 the East has been the stronger conference. Over the last 2 seasons the Eastern teams dominate and Minnisota wins the cup. This season has started out much different. Not only is the Western starting off stronger but the teams leading the way arn't the usual suspects.

1st place

 (CGY) 17pts

After a few mind boggling blunders GM Krauzer has appointed himself a GM to take over Phill and focus his efforts souly on his flames. So far so good! He got the hottest Line in the league Normally id rip Crosby a new one cause he typically doesn't do much (and by much i mean for a guy rated 96) no matter who you put with him. Hell he even played with Ovechkin on pittsburgh but still neither him nor Ovechkin did anything above and beyond, well looks like Nash was the secret ingrediant as the trio has put the flames in 1st and all 3 of them are in the league leaders Crosby 14pts in 9gp Nash 13pts in 9gp and Ovechkin 12pts in 9gp. If they can keep this pace up and not get injured this team has a good chance at competing for the cup.

2nd place

 (NAS) 17pts

No offense to GM Thebutcher but i hate this team and not because of the players NSH is just one of those teams i do not like, there like that person you see at the gym or just in passing by where you know nothing about them but for some reason you just hate there face lol Nashville is that team for me. Regardless this team is producing unlike CGY nothing really jumps out to why and typically that falls to just good overall team balance sometimes you just get that team like WSH geting to the finals in season 3 where they just battle each game out, it may not be pretty or exciting but somehow they get the wins. It will be hard to say if this team can maintain the pace and be dominate all season long but they seem like a lock for the post season.

 (VAN) 16pts

Now this teams performance right now is in large part due to GM MagicMan, iv picked his brain a few times and he knows what hes doing. He's not the Aggressive trading type Tommy or Fear are and its worked so far sometimes the best moves are the ones you dont make. The best thing he did was team swap Ward and Quick. Despite on paper NYR having a pretty good team they never seemed to get that big push and quick not being a player to give up on why not swap with your other team and give that a go. Well its working Quick is leading all categories and has 5 friggin shutouts in only 11 games played !! They also have a great tandem in defence with Karlsson and Ekman-larsson those 2 are amazing together. Assuming no major injury this team should be a team to look out for.

 (MIN) 15pts

Yup their there....back to back Stanley cups going for 3. Just ask the Miami heat how hard it is the 3 peat, The pressure is on! No matter what winning 2 cups in a row is rare in this league and even if W.Kryptonite gets past the 2nd round it will be another impressive season but i in all my years ahve never seen or heard of a team winning 3 years in a row. Van riemsedyk is playing really well right now and if GM tommyboy doesn't convince him to make some 8 man deal screwing up the entire chemistry of this team then i fully expect them to give a good go at the cup again.

 (COL) 14pts

On paper i like this team, they have a very nice 1-2-3 line balance, the D on this team doesn't blow my socks off but there getting the job done. I thought this team might struggle, last season Reimer played great for this team and after losing him in free agency and GM Biohazard picking Brodin 81 instead of Holtby 83 when he needed a goalie i thought he was nuts, but pulled the old team to team deal and Harding has shined as the number 1 in Colorado. Time will tell if a 83 rated goalie can take them the distance but their off to a good start.

Eastern leaders start at this point....So you can see how much more the west is dominating this year then previous years. Now i know we are only 10 games in for most teams but its a big change when what we have seen in the previous 4 seasons not just that its the west but the teams leading them as well.
