    Sim Gods 3rd Annual ALL-STAR TEAM

    It is my honor to present to you the THIRD Annual Sim Gods' HFNHL All-Star Team of General Managers.

    The All-Star Team, consisting of a head coach, five skaters and a goaltender, is presented to General Managers based on their participation in the HFNHL, specifically in their regular contribution to the submission of lines, regular posting on the boards, assistance given to the Sim God in other areas of duties and general behaviour above and beyond the call of duty to the HF world.

    There will be an award of $250,000 given out to each winning GM. These awards are given by my judgement only and therefore any errors contained within are mine alone.

    However - these financial awards will actually only be given if each of the following GM's continue to suck up by writing an acceptance speech in the thread below. And so -

    In no particular order:

    LW: Jon Lemoine - Carolina
    C: Matt Gee - Ottawa
    RW: Brock Otten - Florida
    D: Zach Niece - Dallas
    D: Hasnain Jessa - NY Islanders
    G: Dryden Lewis - Chicago
    Coach: Rob Kreuger - Boston

    These GM's meet some of the highest standards for participation in the Sim Gods World (for a quick reference - see this: GM Lines Submissions.)

    Also - it is great to see three rookie GM's on this list!

    In addition: there will be another award today for which the 'honor' of winning is dubious at best: This award, known as the Moore/Devereaux Award for Underachievement, is for the GM's that either contribute the least or frustrate the Sim God the most.

    There are dual winners this year, but it must be stated that this is based purely upon line submissions, as no GM really incurred my wrath this year.

    2011 Moore/Devereaux Award: Robb Doduck - Pittsburgh & Josh Howell - Washington (tie)

    Feel the shame gentleman!

    As one of the new GM's in the league I'm very happy to receive such an award. This is by far the best league on the internet and from my experience is basically the best guys around that don't actually have jobs with real NHL teams.

    Thanks you SIM GOD for considering me again for 2nd year in a row. The most fun I have is doing my line up and off course trades. I believe setting my lines regularly helped me win at least 5 games during the season.

    Why would we want jobs in a fake league like the NHL?

    My team at one point was playing better without lines, but then it go so absurd in regards to losing that I lost interest in my professional squad. I hope I can make the required changes this year in order to compete for the good end of this award for the coming season.

    One consideration in all of this is injuries: teams with fewer injuries/suspensions had less need of swapping out lines - you could theoretically be okay with 8 or 9 line submissions to cover the regular season. No excuse for me, though - my performance was so below what it should hav been, I should have been spending much more time trying out different combinations against different opponents. More of a GM than a Coach, I guess.
