2013-14 FHL PLAYOFFS! Round 1 Summary

Created by NorwegianOiler on 2014-03-16 23:43:09 (updated by NorwegianOiler on 2014-03-18 23:51:07)

And so the dreams of eight FHL teams were drowned in the success of the remaining eight. There are multiple storylines to follow from the opening round of playoff action.

The most remarkable matchup was certainly between the top seeded Mustangs and the lowly Tigers. As results would have it, the Tigers clawed their way ahead during the last day of action, just as they had come from behind to get into the final sixteen in the first place. On the strength of several good performers, the Mustangs couldn't ride out the lead they had before Sunday's action. Dawgtoy's team performed admirably, but were simply beat out by a red hot team.

The Gladiators-Raiders matchup was another closely contested battle. In the end, the Gladiators matched the Raiders for offense, but edged their lower ranked opponents defensively, squeezing the necessary advantage to advance from their defense and goaltending.

The Vikings ravaged the Stingers. That was a formality. The Vikings were all offense. That was expected. The Stingers fought well. That was admirable. The victors write the history. That is the law.

Following a tight race during the early stages of the week, the Milita could not keep up with the Bulldogs' well balanced group of skaters. They drew points equally from their forwards and defense, which was enough to eliminate a Milita which lacked the same output from their blueliners.

The Heatwave are coming on, enjoying the best week of all FHL teams, which was more than enough to slay the Serpents. The convincing way in which the Heatwave saw off the Serpents may intimidate their next opponent - rival Rhinos - which tallied a score lower than the Serpents last week.

At 58 points, the Rhinos had the second lowest score of all advancing teams. The Lakers lacked necessary contribution from all positions, but kept the race very close for most of the week.

Personal rivals Megasus and Bombers exchanged big words prior to the first round, but only the former could back his promises up with results. The fine late season form of the Bombers was nowhere to be found - and the Megasus put them to the sword.

The final team to go through to the second round of the playoffs were the Burninators. It was more of a fizzle than a sizzle, but the Rebels couldn't match their opponents in the end. Both sides had relatively weak weeks of action, but the Burninators surely have more in them going forward.

Among the teams that never made the playoff cutoff, the Devils had the best week by far, finishing above all but five teams, which must silence some of the Tavares trade talk of recent times.

Finally it has come. Playoff time. The FHL deadline passed by relatively quietly, but noise is to be expected now that the FHL enters its first official playoff campaign. Last year's unofficial champion was the Heatwave, who are certainly among the favourites, 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.

This post will be reserved for the daily update of the playoff matchups - though somewhat later than the automatic update on the standings page. The first round matchups are as follows:

FHL Gazette: General Manager Feature: Tso of the Dragons

Team Logo

A rather abbreviated version of the survey follows from the (presumably busy with rebuilding) GM tso.


* What is the reason you chose your particular team name?
I didn't change the team name and the current name is fine for me.

* From the original draft, who are still on your roster today?
I didn't participate in the original draft

* Looking back at the inaugural draft - what's the biggest surprise?

* Who is the face(s) of your franchise?
Joe Thornton

* What do you perceive to be your team's biggest strength?

* What do you perceive to be your team's biggest weakness?
Defense, big and dead weight contracts

* What are your immediate goals as GM of your team? What stage of the competitive
process do you see yourself in? (Rebuild, win now, balanced approach, etc.)

* If you were to dress a lineup of 12 forwards, 6 defensemen and 2 goalies from your roster - how would it look?
Same as what I have currently.

* What NHL team would you compare your roster to? (Think, perhaps, in terms of physicality, positional strengths, results, etc.)
Maple Leafs!

* What, if any - and without giving up too many secrets, is your fundamental strategy as an FHL GM?
Still trying to rebuild. So no comments. :)

* Which FHL team, if any, do you view as your rival(s)? Why?

* Has any FHL trades caught your attention - why is that?

* Which FHL GM do you think does the best job? Why?
Racki, he was near the bottom of the league at the beginning of the season and he's now currently sitting at #8

* Which teams are the FHL's biggest over- and underachievers in your opinion?

* Who do you think will win the FHL Regular season this year?
- Is that the same team you believe will win the playoffs as well? Why/why not?
Mustangs. Yup, he has Sidney Crosby on the team. LOL.
* What do you enjoy most about the FHL?
Different than traditional fantasy league. People are really active in the forums and actively looking for trades

* How often do you log on, say in terms of average visits per week?
At first, I login quite often, but I haven't done so recently since there aren't many changes I can do with my team at the moment. Trades proposals were presented but they didn't fix my team's problem.

* If you could change aspects of the FHL, what would you change?
Instead of 35 players + prospects, reduce it down to 28 + prospects. That will prevent people from hoarding players

* Which aspects of the FHL would you be reluctant or opposed to changing?
Waiver wire should stay the same.

* Is there anything else you have to note that would be of interest to the fellowship of the FHL?
