http://i5.ifrm.com/14976/177/emo/reporter.gif Will you be a better GM then Dorion?

Dorion looks like he's never heard of a comb, at least I have nice hair.
Yeah I should be, I don't deserve this job if I'm not better then Dorion.

QUOTE
How do you think your prior GM and Coaching experience will help you now with the Riot as it looks like you guys are retooling?

In my first season on the Knights, I decided to do a quick retool, as we we weren't in a great spot. I wanted to set up the team for a good next few seasons, which I feel I have... the Knights are one of the more solid teams in the SMJHL now. I think my experience with helping build the Knights for last season will definitely help me in this new role as co-gm, however I do have to recognize that an SHL rebuild/retool is much more complicated and longer then a SMJHL rebuild. so that will be an obstacle.

http://i5.ifrm.com/14976/177/emo/reporter.gif Is there a certain trade which was hardest to pull off?

Definitely moving Trevor Wilson twils. The man has 8 seasons in the books with Seattle, and has been everything but great with Seattle. We did move him for a buncha picks and a solid prospect, which was definitely worth it, however Trevor Wilson will be missed... but with our state, it had to be done I feel. We'd be wasting his peak by keeping him around, he deserves a shot at a cup with West Kendall.

Watch West Kendall fuck it up again.

QUOTE
Similarly, is there a trade which was easiest to pull off?

Umm... probably Lundberg.

QUOTE
What do you suppose your role will be with this Riot management?

Me and Jed do almost equal responsibility for the Riot, we have a share in almost everything... tradings, signings, drafting. I do say though, Jed is probably the better lines person here.

QUOTE
Why is r1c3 the best GM partner you've had?

I can't answer questions with invalid statements in them...
NourFFAK the GOAT partner

QUOTE
How many seasons before Seattle makes the playoffs again?

3/4 :eyes:

1.We’ve seen before with Hamilton and Buffalo that rebuilds are no exact science.. they can break down and fail for a number of reasons... is there any worry or concern about pushing the team into a full start from the bottom rebuild knowing the complexities of an SHL rebuild?

2. How long do you believe it wil take Seattle to be back in the playoff hunt?

3. Will you be rebranding or redesigning Seattle?

Will Jed Lloren be playing with the Riot this upcoming season, or will he be announcing retirement and get loaned somewhere?

If he is staying, for how long?

If he is leaving, whats next for Rice after Lloren?

Good article Samee. I think Seattle did an excellent job at getting value for piece not likely to stay long-term, which helps the rebuild be smoother and swifter in success.

http://i5.ifrm.com/14976/177/emo/reporter.gif Alright… I’m sure you’ve seen the #FreeDizzy chants from around the league in response to the Riot declaring a rebuild… will we be seeing Garret in a jersey that isn’t the Riot?
Santos: “Signs point to no. We want to build this franchise around the young Louie Garret, he’s going to be the most key piece of this rebuild, along with the youngsters we’ve got here in Zajac, Zybnek and Twain. It's gonna take a hell of an offer to pry Garret out of Seattle.”


Geez for a GM hoping that I stick around you would think he would want to spell my name correctly...

Most GMs would try to desperately keep the team alive despite FAs leaving, what has motivated you and Rice to start from scratch in a rebuild?

Do you think the need to go into a full rebuild could have been avoided had it been addressed sooner?
What do you think of the moves that Clardy made when he was in charge? Was it worth selling the future to have to one President’s trophy and the best chance at a cup that the Riot have had in a long time?
Was trading me really just a way for Jed to stay above me in all time Riot points?

Also ily2 good luck with rebuild

http://i5.ifrm.com/14976/177/emo/reporter.gif What do you expect from the team next season?

I'm don't have too many high hopes for the upcoming season, however I'm going to try pushing the squad we have right now into a playoff spot somehow. Chances are it'll be incredibly tough, and the odds are seriously against us, but with the likes of Garrett, Lloren, Iqbal, Fearghal and Rudnikova, theres a chance... hopefully the rookies can give us a big push in the coming season. I'm expecting something good outta Zajac and Twain, they've been major forces in the SMJHL and hopefully that can translate into them being huge impact players in the SHL soon.

QUOTE
http://i5.ifrm.com/14976/177/emo/reporter.gif Will we see any more moves being made?

QUOTE
http://i5.ifrm.com/14976/177/emo/reporter.gif The Riot currently own multiple picks in the upcoming SHL draft. How do you plan on using these? Will you make trades with these picks, or keep them for yourself and draft with them?

The coming draft is incredibly deep, we'll be looking to keep these picks.

The problem with those rebuilds is mismanagement, causing players to be disgruntled and the rebuilds just falling apart. The situation in Hamilton a few seasons ago is a prime example of that, however GM Hallsy really picked it up and they've recovered well, and are now a top team. I want to rebuild sorta like how Edmontons done here... they've collected a good amount of youngins and built the team around them... they'll be good for years to come, with or without Orlov, Knouse and McFadden.

QUOTE
2. How long do you believe it wil take Seattle to be back in the playoff hunt?

3-4 seasons, disregarding FAs

QUOTE
3. Will you be rebranding or redesigning Seattle?

Likely not, our jersey concept is probably one of the best in the league.

I don't believe he's announcing retirement yet, but if he does we're going to give him a chance at a cup with a different team. You should probably ask Jed that tho.

QUOTE
If he is staying, for how long?

Idk ask Jed during his presser if he has one.

If he is leaving, whats next for Rice after Lloren?

Well, it would be litteraly impossible for us to try to stay alive with the FAs leaving... previous management left us with no picks to continue on to move to make this team better. With the picks we did acquire from the FAs, I still have strong belief that moving them wouldn't give us the assets to stay in contention for the playoffs.

I can't tell what could have happened... I do believe that maybe moving the FAs a season ago or two may have set us up for more assets, however in the defense of previous management, moving those players just wouldn't work out well, that'd just make us bottom dwellers the previous season. However at the same time, we'd have more assets and better assets, so we could not be in a full rebuild... I can't really say though, predicting what didn't happen was tough.

QUOTE
What do you think of the moves that Clardy made when he was in charge? Was it worth selling the future to have to one President’s trophy and the best chance at a cup that the Riot have had in a long time?

He really sold the future, which is really why we're in a rebuild. Iqbal was acquired for Teodors Cukurs... now a 1.1k tpe star on Edmonton, Joseph Lombardi, a young star on San Fransicso, and what is now the 8th overall pick in this draft. That's just poor from Clardy. How much better the Riot would be setup now and for the future if that deal didn't happen would be much better then what clardy left for us. And that's just one of the terrible deals he made.
Gonna be honest hes cool but he was kinda garbage at trading.
Nah, it wasn't worth going for the Presidents Trophy, had he been more patient with his assets, the Riot could be regarded as a top team maybe now, maybe in a season or two. And with a better future.

I'll be playing with Seattle for the foreseeable future.

I'll be staying at least two seasons.

When I retire, I'll be heading away for a little break for an undefined length of time.
