Howard Delt to St. Louis

Detroit, MI- In a shocking player for player trade on Tuesday the Red Wings sent longtime net minder Jimmy Howard to St. Louis in exchange for winger Vladmir Taresenko, goalie Brian Elliot, and a first round draft pick.
Although regular season player for player trades are not uncommon in the NHL it is rare to see franchise players switching teams as happened Tuesday.
With his team struggling to stay above the .500 mark at 16-14 and treading water in the middle of the Atlantic Division, interim general manager Rick Watkins decided it was time to shake up the roster.

“We were looking for someone to strengthen our wing that could put the puck in the net as well.” Watkins said after the trade was made public. “We were able to find that in a younger player with high upside as well in Valdmir (Taresenko)… We knew we had to look at making the move.”
Howard has spent his entire career in Detroit since coming up through their farm system in Grand Rapids. The Detroit front office is excited for Taresenko’s upside as a young player but the reaction to trading away a fan favorite has not been positive.
“Its never an easy decision when you’re looking to move a guy whose an all star that has been through your system but the upside outweighed the negatives.” Watkins said on the deal.

“It’s tough to say goodbye to Jimmy but we wish him all the luck in the world.” Head Coach Mike Babcock said about the trade. “We’re comfortable with (Brian) Elliot handling the duties between the pipes primarily and are excited to see what Vlad can bring to the lineup.”

Taresenko and Elliot are expected to meet the Wings in New Jersey for Frinday night’s matchup with the Devils.

Full trade details below:

I haven’t yet spoken with Doug Armstrong (Blues GM) regarding Taresenko. They’re going to want a lot in order to give him up as they know better than anyone what a high ceiling that guys has.

Last night the staff and I came to a consensus that we would have to send Jimmy Howard over in order to get the Blues to move off Vlad. They need goaltending help plus with Howard’s skill up to this season and his long term deal we can probably get them to send over another net minder to take his place for us.

I am concerned about the backlash of trading away a guy that everyone in and around the franchise loves. I think if Taresenko can hit the ground running the fan base and media pundits may change their tune in a hurry but if the deal doesn’t work out I’m sure I’ll be the butt of many jokes going forward.

If I had my preference I’d obviously keep Jimmy & add some sort of scoring power but frankly our premier net minder isn’t getting the job done at the moment. No matter anyone’s personal feelings in the end though this is a business, I spoke with Illich & Ken and they both told me they trusted my judgment.


After a lot of back and forth I decided to pursue the deal. The rest of the staff says we should propose Howard and an agreed upon AHLer for Taresenko, Brian Elliot, and two draft picks. I think the deal will help the team both in the long and short term. Now I just have to hope Brian Elliot doesn’t turn out to be a sieve.

The National Football League has been rocked to the core. Randy Lerner, Owner of the Cleveland Browns has pleaded guilty to several cases of collusion. Cases referring to gambling on -- and rigging NFL games.

After threats of cancelling the 2015-2016 season. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has resorted to drastic measures. The franchise known as the Cleveland Browns is a thing of the past. Everyone and everything in regards to the organization has been terminated. Owners, Coaching Staff and even the players have all been released of their contracts.

A bidding war erupted over the new expansion team. The war concluded earlier this evening when billionaire, Donald Trump was accepted as the teams new owner.

"I didn't buy a mockery. I bought a new beginning. A tower will stand above the filth and my organization will flourish in the National Football League."

The new expansion team has been rebuilt via the free agency market of the NFL. The only players retained from the debacle is the rookie class of 2015. Head Coach Mike Pettine and his staff was relieved of their duties and replaced with Ryan Mack as a temporary head coach.

Where the team will play and what they will go by will be revealed later on in the week!

Entry: December 2nd, 2013

The team is struggling, it’s just plain to see. The offense is pressing, the defense is lost at times trying to clear the zone and Jimmy Howard suddenly has the highest GAA of any starting net minder in the league. I feel like we need to shake up the roster or maybe bring up some fresh blood from Grand Rapids but I can’t be sure.

There is no doubt that there is a lack of scorers on the roster. Our scouts show Datsyuk and Zetterberg as play makers while in reality they’re our two best shooters. Nyquist is playing incredibly well for his age but I’m going to start looking for a sniper to bring into the top two lines, someone who is a natural scorer.


I got the staff working on potential trade opportunities with an eye for scoring talent. Half of us looked at our roster while the other half began looking around the league for someone to fill the hole.

Of course there isn’t much that we’re willing to part with, or at least anyone who will command a top six forward. The best option would be to trade away draft pick or an AHLer like Jurco or Sheahan but I don’t want to mortgage the franchise’s future for a possible short term fix that might not even work out.

Looking at trade partners, we’ve circled in on St. Louis and possibly going after Vladmir Taresenko. His skill set is exactly what we’re looking for and the scouts tell me he has a very high ceiling. Also the price is right. Now we just have to find someone the Blues want.

Entry: December 1st, 2013

The squad finished November one win better than October at 8-7. The division is shaping up that we’re actually not going to have to be much better than that in order to qualify for a playoff spot but of course no one wants to leave our fate in the hands of other teams.

Despite only being one game above .500 Babcock tells me the locker room is in fine shape in that no one is panicking but at the same time no one is satisfied either. With the mix we have of seasoned veterans and young talent it’s important that a tone is set during rough times where guys are saying ‘We’ve got to step up, losing isn’t acceptable’.

That being said I’m heavily considering making a move. Our offensive output is not where it should be and defensively we’re unable to clear the zone all too often. I’m thinking about shopping around for a natural scorer.

I am anxious for this team to start hitting it’s stride.

UAB: Back From The Dead.

This will be my first attempt at running my own dynasty here on OS. After lurking around several of the other excellent dynasties being run I decided to finally give it a shot.

The first order of business was to decide what team to use and what I wanted to do to keep the dynasty fun. I originally thought about going with UTSA, Texas State or one of the other popular 1* dynasty teams, but in the end I realized I needed to do something different. I wanted to use a team that not many people were using and also one that would keep my interest and allow me to create a good story. After scouring the internet to see what other people were running I stumbled upon a post about how to handle UAB's return to the BCS. And I knew at that moment, that I had found my team.


Dynasty Settings
Game:NCAA 14 on Xbox 360
Skill Level: Heisman
Recruiting Difficulty: Heisman
Sliders: This will be a work in progress for me. I will be tweaking these as the dynasty progress. I want the games to be realistic as possible, while still being fun.
Quarter Length: 8 minutes
Game Speed: Normal
Speed Threshold: 35
Penalty Sliders:

Face Mask - 56

OPI - 99
Clipping - 54
Intentional Grounding - 99
Roughing the Passer - 53
- Roughing the Kicker - 99

In order to simulate UAB's departure and return I edited their roster and made everyone a senior. During the first season I simmed the games while recruiting. Obviously I ended up with a ton of walk ons, and a team that is rated in the low 50's OVR.

Starting from the second season I will be playing all of the games and recruiting. I do not expect to even be competitive in many of the games for the first season or two, but I'm sure gonna try.

For the beginning of the season I will only look at recruits that are interested in coming to UAB, unless there is no interest at a position of need. In that case I can recruit anyone from my pipelines. If I'm still looking to fill a need then anyone is fair game. I will try and keep it realistic.

No restrictions, but given the state of the roster I don't expect to use many early on.

Transfers/Players Leaving
I will not try and prevent a recruit from leaving regardless of the situation.

I think I've covered the basics. I am still trying to figure out my layouts and what kinds of things to use for this dynasty. Being new everything is a learning process, but hopefully you guys will enjoy it. Feel free to offer suggestions and feedback to help me make this dynasty better.

See you on the gridiron.

I’m not entirely pleased with the way this team is performing right now. I personally don’t believe in the school of thought that you can give a team slack if it’s early in the season. Points count the same in October as they do come playoff time when you need a tie breaker or OTL to win home ice. I will give the guys some time to gel but we started the season 1-4 and were shut out twice!
The positives to take away at this point are that the team is being led by its stars; Datsyuk & Zetterberg are the scoring leaders and Franzen is playing like he’s three years younger at the moment. I’ll look for the youngsters to step up as the season wears on and old legs grow tired.
The other positive is that we’ve been healthy which hopefully continues. Babcock is working the line parings around to find the right combination and I trust his judgment implicitly. I know whether it be line parings or some other form of motivation that he’ll ge the best out of these guys.
