2015-16 FHL Playoffs FINAL Matchup

Created by NorwegianOiler on 2016-03-27 23:35:05 (updated by NorwegianOiler on 2016-04-11 23:11:09)

We have arrived at the final matchup of the third official FHL playoffs. The two finalists, the Militia and the Burninators, have had diametrically opposite journeys to this point. Whereas the Militia have all but strolled through, winning every series comfortably against underperforming teams; the Burninators have taken on some of the strongest teams in the FHL and prevailed. The Heatwave, Bombers, and Gladiators have all fallen to "Trogdor þæm Bærnettamber". Jfrizzio has finally progressed to the ultimate challenge, having been eliminated last year by the Gladiators, but now have a chance to take home the first trophy of the franchise's history. Over the next week and six days we'll crown a new playoff champion of the FHL.

2015-16 FHL Playoffs SEMI FINAL Matchups

The final four have been decided through trial by fire. The conclusion forced cinderella team Dragons to acknowledge the cruelty of the playoffs, seeing as a week where the team put up better numbers than 20 teams but failed to beat the the only team it had to best. Thus, the Gladiators move through to the next stage. Their opponents, the Burninators, have people in thatched roof houses upgrading their smoke detectors with increasing concern, as Trogdor keeps paying merciless visits to all in the playoffs. In the other semi final, the Militia's powerhouse offense prove valuable once again as they gun down the feeble Raiders with exceeding ease. The Rhinos bulldozed a similar path to the semis, making short work of the lacklustre Megasus, who only finished above the Raiders in the week that mattered most this season. Whatever the outcome, the FHL will see a new playoff winner this season, may it come down to the final day of action!

2015-16 FHL Playoffs ROUND 2 Matchups

Created by NorwegianOiler on 2016-03-14 09:11:05 (updated by NorwegianOiler on 2016-03-20 23:50:28)

After a ferocious first round, the only two teams to have won the playoffs, namely the Heatwave and the Vikings, have both been eliminated. This ushers in the "dawn of the losers' time in the sun", as it is to be hereby known. Two of the top three seeded teams remain, however, as the Gladiators and Militia easily defeated their respective opponents the Devils and Rattleheads. Another upset was completed in the tightest matchup of the first round, where the Raiders just edged the Bulldogs by less than a full point. So, despite being the fourth best team that week, the Bulldogs are banished from the post-season by a red-hot Raiders team. While the Chiefs and Rhinos started out quite evenly, the series turned out to be a blowout as the Rhinos finished strong. They must now face a Megasus outfit that deposed the higher ranking Thunder in round one. The Mustangs provided no storybook ending to their terrible start of the week, thus the Bombers stumble into the second round through to fault of GM Racki, who spends most of his time waiving turds and updating the weekly rosters of mismanaged teams. Tougher opposition will likely be present in the Burninators who spent the first round giving the Heatwave a smackdown. 

 Here is the second round in gloriously coloured logos.

2015-16 FHL Playoffs: ROUND 1 Matchups

Created by NorwegianOiler on 2016-03-06 23:16:09 (updated by NorwegianOiler on 2016-03-14 00:14:26)

It is here again. Playoff time. The FHL deadline passed by relatively quietly, but noise is to be expected now that the FHL enters its third official playoff campaign. After two consecutive Norack Cups and playoff trophies the Vikings are still the team to beat, but several teams have produced good results the past few weeks and it appears that several matchups are poised for a tight race. Good luck, everyone.

News re-run: FHL Playoff cutoff date (and playoff schedule)

Created by NorwegianOiler on 2016-02-23 00:13:54

Playoff cutoff 2015-16 is Sunday March 6th.

This is just a reminder to inform the league that the playoff cutoff date this season is after all NHL action on Sunday March 6th. At that point, playoff matchups will be decided according to our traditional system of 1v16, 2v15, and so forth. The first three rounds up until the final will be played on a weekly basis, whereas the final itself will be decided based on the last full week of action plus whatever shortened week that follows - which this season is a six day week that ends on Saturday April 9th.

Good luck to everyone in both their regular season and playoff ambitions.

What do you think about your team's performance so far this season? 
Meh, same old, same old...overall pretty happy, injuries have taken their toll a bit, but we can all say that at some point during the season. I just can't get over the hump, I see the flaws, just not much I can do to fix them.

What are the most important reasons behind your team's performance?
General consistency I guess, fairly well rounded team.

Do you have any concrete ambitions for the remainder of the season?
Hopefully climb back up a space or two in the standings...unfortunately I don't think Norbot is catchable.

Which of your players would you be willing to listen to offers to? 
I'm honestly pretty open to offers on anyone, make a pitch.
- What would be the starting price for these players?
See above.

What areas of your team are you looking to address in the future?
I might be inclined to get a little younger, but that doesn't mean I'll sell my good vets for nothing.

Which teams have surprised you the most so far this season?
Gladiators.

Who do you think will win the Norack Cup as regular season champion? 
Intentionally left blank because it makes me to ill to type again.

Who do you think will win the FHL playoffs?
A team in the FHL.

Do you have any other messages for the fellowship of the FHL?

<3

 

What do you think about your team's performance so far this season? 
Started out alright, my roster was producing well except for Getzlaf. Lately its been the opposite, Getzlaf is putting up points and the rest are overall slumping. I've gone from fighting for a spot in the top five to picking in the top ten in June.

What are the most important reasons behind your team's performance?
The slumps of Desharnias, Nyqvist, Lee, and Getzlaf have out weight the strong performances of Weise, Parenteau, and Alzner. Don't even get me started on my goaltending...

Do you have any concrete ambitions for the remainder of the season?
Not really just scout and ride it out and start again next year.

Which of your players would you be willing to listen to offers to? 
Kronwall, Emelin, and Lehtonen.

What areas of your team are you looking to address in the future?
Goaltending...

Which teams have surprised you the most so far this season?
No team in particular, just the closeness and parity this season compared to last, a bad week can really be costly.

Who do you think will win the Norack Cup as regular season champion? 
Is this really going to be a mystery or surprise? The Vikings.

Who do you think will win the FHL playoffs?
The Militia for some reason.

Do you have any other messages for the fellowship of the FHL?
Have you heard about this Connor kid?
