    Hello to all of you fellow hockey enthusiasts, my name is Dave and I am now officially the new GM of the Sharks. I'm very excited to start the season. I have much to learn about this league but I'm sure I will be able to pick things up quiet easily. It was recommended I make a creative post about my new position as the GM of said Sharks so I will do my best to entertain you!

    First things first, it has come to my attention that I have a plethera of prospects in which I must cut down to a smaller amount. I will be looking to move anywhere from 20 to 25 players, if you have any interest in prospects let me know as from taking a look at the list of players I can say most if not all are available to be moved (some players may take a bit more for me to get rid of though so keep that in mind, I am trying to get rid of them but I'm not giving them away!)

    Although I havent had that much time to inspect my rosters/prospects at first glance my team does look like it needs some work but thats why I'm here. I am always open to trade offers, I will give everything atleast one look, maybe two if it looks tasty.

    Once I get down to business I will be able to discuss my team in more depth as I have only recently found out about my acquistion of this team. Thanks for letting me join and I hope all of you have a good season, you will being hearing from me in the future!

    Dave - New GM of the Sharks

    Welcome aboard Dave! We'll try not to let your association with Mr. Otten compromise any first impressions. Good luck this season!

    BTW, Reggie got your prospects offers and will be responding shortly.

    Cheers,

    Nick Quain
    GM St. Louis Blues
     
  4. Welcome aboard Dave.

    You better be careful though as you have two strikes against you ...
    (i) As Dr. Sens(e) already mentioned you're associated with Mr. Otten
    (ii) The outgoing GM fleeced a few newbie GM's in trades in the past and those that are still around may be looking for some payback ;)

    Seriously though we hope you enjoy the league as we enter our 7th year.

    We may be in the minority, but there are actually quite a few of us left. Taking a look through the team list...

    Stan/Jim - PHX
    Martin - MTL
    Rich - NJD
    Sean - NYR
    Claudio - PHI
    Martin - TAM
    Mike - LAK
    Nick - STL
    Douglas - CBJ

    That's almost 1/3rd... pretty good for a league in its 7th year of operations, I'd say, and longer than many NHL GMs last. ;)

    I feel I would have been there with Washington if I had continued on there, but after three seasons I bit the bullet and took over a drowning Blue Jackets franchise.

    What's everyone else's excuse? :sarcasm:

    Are you saying that you are a better GM than Andrew since he hasn't won a cup after taking over the Washington team

    There was a GM in between - Marcel Daigneault - who did a fair bit of damage to the squad before Andrew joined, so Andrew didn't start where I left off.

    And yes, I'm a better GM than Andrew. :sarcasm:

    Yep - only those still on the first tour of duty need apply... but you get bonus points for coming back to the fold, Matthew!

    And I know you weren't talking about me, Drewski - 3 late first-rounders for JP Dumont was teh worst of my excesses as Washington GM.

    The only thing I have won in HFNHL is the first overall pick in the draft of 99. Its time to win something now!

    What season was it when atleast 5 of the GMs was called Martin?
