Hello draft candidates!

If you're reading this and intend to reply, that must mean you've just completed your first SMJHL season. Congratulations! Everything must still be new and exciting, as it was for me way [not that way] back in S24. That's not to say it isn't still exciting for us veterans--but I'm sure most people recall getting drafted as the highlight of their careers. Also, last year was my first draft as a manager, and nothing compares to telling a player they're coming to play on the team!

Here are some statistics from last year's Portland team:

S26 Record: 17-28-5 (39 points, 7th in Western Conference)
GF: 129
GA: 170
GD: -41

Picks in S27: #1, #15, #19, #36, #43, #57

Top Forwards
RW Buster Killington (2nd season): 19G, 21A, 40P, 173 HIT
C Yousuf Scherbluk (final season): 17G, 20A, 37P, 49.78FO%
C/W Nikolaus Scholz (2nd season): 14G, 21A, 35P, 10PPP

Top Defenders
D Patrick Brumm (2nd season): 13G, 17A, 30P, 68SB
D Hans Ponsen (3rd season): 5G, 23A, 28P, 48PIM
D Pal Vikingstod (2nd season): 2G, 26A, 28P, 121HIT (S25 ROTY)

Rookies
C/W Sven Karlsson: 9G, 16A, 25P
W Ross Burke: 11G, 6A, 17P
D Matt Veenstra: 6G, 11A, 17P, 51SB

Letting a team know you're interested in playing for them is your prerogative, but providing this questionnaire is my way of giving you a template. I understand that messaging strangers saying "hey, draft me!" can be a little daunting without context. So, without further ado, copy and paste these questions into a reply with your answers:

CODE
1. Your player's name:

2. Links to player and update pages - if it's in your signature, just say that:

3. Rate your activity level from 1-10:

4. What statistic from last season are you most proud of?

5. Do you want to be sent down next season, try to play as a true rookie, or have no preference?

6. Where does Portland rank, from 1-14, for teams you want to join?

7. Where do you predict you'll go in the draft?

8. What's your favorite part of the site/game?

9. How much of your build have you planned out?

10. You're in a bus going across the country. Are you the driver (leading the way), the navigator (telling the driver where to go), in the front (providing suggestions for the driver/navigator), or in the back (chillin', along for the ride)?

11. How do you feel about joining an expansion team?

12. What do you do outside the SHL? If you're a student, what are you studying? If you're in high school, what do you want to study (if anything) in college?

13. Name your top 5 bands/artists.


Make your answers however short or long you want. Thanks for your time, and go Admirals!

2. Links to player and update pages - if it's in your signature, just say that:
http://i5.ifrm.com/11514/47/emo/yeahthat.gif

3. Rate your activity level from 1-10: 8

4. What statistic from last season are you most proud of? None. My statistics were generally poor in my first season.

5. Do you want to be sent down next season, try to play as a true rookie, or have no preference?
I'd like to be a send down and that is a very strong preference. I'm not SHL ready.

6. Where does Portland rank, from 1-14, for teams you want to join?
Second or third.

7. Where do you predict you'll go in the draft?
mid first round to mid second round

8. What's your favorite part of the site/game?
Writing media that people take an interest in, growing my player week by week and the social part of the league. I like the regular rhythm of the regular season over the playoffs in the SMJHL.

9. How much of your build have you planned out?
I have a general idea of where I'm going with my build, but it is mostly a week to week decision on what to increase. I'm also role-playing somewhat where, for example, I'll work on skating endurance and strength in the off-season. Then my GM gets some input on my build as well. All this keeps the game more interesting and a bit more realistic for me.

10. You're in a bus going across the country. Are you the driver (leading the way), the navigator (telling the driver where to go), in the front (providing suggestions for the driver/navigator), or in the back (chillin', along for the ride)?
It's such a long trip that there's room to play all four roles, although I'm the navigator / advisor / teacher by nature.

11. How do you feel about joining an expansion team?
More positive than negative

12. What do you do outside the SHL? If you're a student, what are you studying? If you're in high school, what do you want to study (if anything) in college?
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Engineer

13. Name your top 5 bands/artists.

U2, Beatles, Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, (Whatever I'm in the mood for...Throw in Elton John for now)

4. What statistic from last season are you most proud of? Goals, Goals and Goals.

5. Do you want to be sent down next season, try to play as a true rookie, or have no preference? Have no preference but given the horrible state Prince George is in, I'd love to play up.

6. Where does Portland rank, from 1-14, for teams you want to join? In the top 3.

7. Where do you predict you'll go in the draft? 8-14th? Not sure really. It's hard to judge with GM's being different over here in regards to contacting people.

8. What's your favorite part of the site/game? Updating my player.

9. How much of your build have you planned out? All of it, and i mean all of it.

10. You're in a bus going across the country. Are you the driver (leading the way), the navigator (telling the driver where to go), in the front (providing suggestions for the driver/navigator), or in the back (chillin', along for the ride)?
Like to think i'm the driver who doesn't out talk everyone. Able to accept suggestions but also keep my head on straight.

Love it. Always have loved that prospect. I did it in the VHL and it was a great experience.

1. Your player's name:
Wendell Luna

2. Links to player and update pages - if it's in your signature, just say that:
Both are in nice, big, bold letters in my signature.

3. Rate your activity level from 1-10:

6-I check the site every day, update every week (I missed one week this season though), but I have trouble jumping into some locker room conversation and do not always participate in the point tasks, electing instead to do a few of them, but mainly just training and activity checks.

4. What statistic from last season are you most proud of?

Shots blocked (63) because the intent was for my player to focus mainly on defending the net, not laying players out. I believe that stat shows that it worked.

5. Do you want to be sent down next season, try to play as a true rookie, or have no preference?

I will be wherever I need to be, but do expect to be sent down for another season in Detroit as that is usually what is best for all parties involved. I would prefer to be sent down another season.

6. Where does Portland rank, from 1-14, for teams you want to join?
I haven't thought about it enough for give an exact answer, but probably within the top 3.

7. Where do you predict you'll go in the draft?
Late second or third round...maybe?

8. What's your favorite part of the site/game?
The fact that with all of the stats, training, money, and media, it is like a whole separate world. I like participating in that world, however minimal it may sometimes seem that I do so.

9. How much of your build have you planned out?
I believe I have worked out a general idea of it for the next little bit. I plan on focusing mainly on defense, strength, and skating to help with stealing the puck, and focusing on passing and puck handling a little bit in between to keep those a part of his decision making. Stealing the puck means nothing if you can't get rid of it.

10. You're in a bus going across the country. Are you the driver (leading the way), the navigator (telling the driver where to go), in the front (providing suggestions for the driver/navigator), or in the back (chillin', along for the ride)?
Probably not the answer you're looking for, but you know that guy that sits in the back and sometimes comes up to the front and says "Hey I heard you guys talking about (insert topic of interest) and would like to weigh in" ....I'm that guy.

11. How do you feel about joining an expansion team?
Expansion means nothing less than opportunity to jump on to something early and build it up to something no one will ever remember being "that expansion team."

12. What do you do outside the SHL? If you're a student, what are you studying? If you're in high school, what do you want to study (if anything) in college?

College freshman currently involved in a bridge program for mathematics/dual engineering.

13. Name your top 5 bands/artists.

I did band in high school, and have a respect for all sorts of music...that being said, my preferences change way too much to name my top 5 favorite bands/artists. Here's a general outline though. NO country, NO 21 pilots, NO taylor swift.

3. Rate your activity level from 1-10: 8

4. What statistic from last season are you most proud of?

My faceoff percentage. I played low minutes so I didn't get too many points (still got more then Merica and he had almost double my minutes)

5. Do you want to be sent down next season, try to play as a true rookie, or have no preference?

Depending on how future events play out, I'll let you know

6. Where does Portland rank, from 1-14, for teams you want to join?

It's in my top 2. I love the guys here and have strong faith in the GMs

7. Where do you predict you'll go in the draft?

I think I'm a early to mid second rounder

8. What's your favorite part of the site/game?

I love the media and reading all the cool articles that people come out with. I try to come out with a few myself each season, but I sometimes just don't have the time to write the multi thousand word articles. I also loved PBPs, which is why I was sad they went away.

9. How much of your build have you planned out?

I got it mostly planned out


10. You're in a bus going across the country. Are you the driver (leading the way), the navigator (telling the driver where to go), in the front (providing suggestions for the driver/navigator), or in the back (chillin', along for the ride)?

I'm the actual bus that's carrying the team http://us22.chatzy.com/elements/smileys/default/tongue.png


Joking aside, I'd say I am the driver. As much as I don't mind following from time to time, I like to go with my own flow

11. How do you feel about joining an expansion team?

I was apart of the expansion draft cause I wanted to be one of the first to play for a brand new team and make new history with them. So retuning to the same one would be great.

12. What do you do outside the SHL? If you're a student, what are you studying? If you're in high school, what do you want to study (if anything) in college?

I'm halfway done grade 11 now. I'm looking to head into the Skilled trades, specifically Electrican.

13. Name your top 5 bands/artists.

Bully talent
Three days grace
Michael Jackson
Simple plan
Eminem

Yousuf you are one of the best GMs in the game. I have so much respect for you as a person and I know you did everything you could this season to put our team in the best possible position to win. You went all out for us and drafted really well in the beginning of the SMJHL 23 season. You helped me with my build and inspired me to perhaps be a GM or Co-GM of the Whalers in the future. Thanks for everything.
