1ST ROUND RESULTS:

VGK v BOS

The Vegas Golden Knights have been in hot pursuit of the cup ever since they entered the league all those years ago. But could they resist taking a major penalty in order to advance out of the first round this
year? Their matchup with the Boston Bruins was tighter than the regular season results would have shown - with a a 55/45 edge in GM voting, the Golden Knights took full advantage of home-ice and ousted the Bruins thanks to some stellar goaltending by Cahtah Haht.

Note: no one was licked during the simulation of this playoff series.

1ST ROUND RESULTS:

CAR v MIN

The Carolina Hurricanes are looking to Finnish strong after ending the regular season in 3rd place and preparing for a deep playoff run. Their match-up against the Minnesota Wild was hardly even - the GMs favored Carolina over Minny more than any team in any series, 79/21. Would they be able to swallow their pride and defeat the underdogs? Would Matt Duchene prove the worth of his contract and help slay the giants?

Game 3: 3-1 CAR (Carlson)

VAN v NJD

4th seed Vancouver Canucks had home ice advantage over their cross...err...continent rivals, the New Jersey Devils. NJD had the edge in goaltending, but the GMs gave the Canucks an overall advantage of 65/35. The Canucks' second line could not be contained by the Devils in this one - they scored 3 GWG and led an impressive charge toward the second round.

1ST ROUND RESULTS:

COL v TOR

The Colorado Avalanche were missing some key players entering round one versus the Tranna Meefs. If they were going to take down the Leafs, they were going to need the big guns, Mackinnon and Marner, to overshadow some of the depth troubles in the bottom six. Ultimately, goalies determined the outcome of this one. The GMs gave a large edge in net to the #5 Avs. Overall, the voting ended 60/40; no upset here, COL moves on.

1ST ROUND RESULTS:

CBJ v WPG

Columbus entered the playoffs as the #6 seed behind an MVP performance by Artemi Panarin along with some elite goaltending from the Blues backup and some dude named Elvis. Thanks to the edge in goaltending, CBJ was able to balance out the perceived advantages that the Winnipeg Jets had in their skater group. The final voting ended in a 50/50 dead heat - to take it out to decimals, CBJ had 50.22% of the vote. In 1,000 simulations, CBJ won 51.6% of them. In the only 6 simulations that mattered, CBJ won 4 of them.

1ST ROUND RESULTS:

NSH v CGY

In a Western Conference duel between #7 Nashville and #10 Calgary, only one team would advance. (Duh, just give me the results.) This one was pretty decisive. Nashville had an advantage in every scoring category, ended up with 65% of the vote, and shut the door on the Flames' cup aspirations.

1ST ROUND RESULTS:

DAL v PHI

Dallas had the best goaltending duo in the league this season. The Flyers had more star power than... screw it this is the last write-up and I'm running low on effort. Could we finish the first round without a single upset? Nah. #9 Philly got the job done thanks to a big edge in forward talent. The GMs gave the Flyers a 56/44 advantage. Gritty can chill... sorta.

2ND ROUND RESULTS

TBL v PHI

Tampa Bay won the President's Trophy and annihilated the Arizona Coyotes in Round 1. But their Round 2 opponent appeared much more formidable. The Flyers are stacked with all-stars and veterans at all positions, poised to knock out the #1 seed. In fact, the GM voting yielded a 51/49 advantage to #9 Philly. Ivan Provorov scored in overtime to win Game 1. But after jumping ahead in the series, the Black and Orange couldn't seem to get the bounces when they needed them the most. They would fall to the Lightning in 6 games. Gritty was arrested and charged with aggravated assault outside of the Wells Fargo center shortly after the conclusion of Game 6... as well as after Games 3 and 4.

Game Results:
Game 1: 5-4 OT PHI (Provorov)
Game 2: 4-2 TBL (Prokhorkin)
Game 3: 4-3 2OT TBL (Point)
Game 4: 3-1 TBL (Walker)
Game 5: 4-2 PHI (Getzlaf)
Game 6: 6-3 TBL (Doughty)

TBL wins series 4-2

2ND ROUND RESULTS

VGK v NSH

In another tight battle, the #2 Las Vegas Golden Knights Without The Las But With The Golden were challenged by the #7 seed Nashville Ermergerd Perderters. Voting was nearly a coin toss, with VGK gathering a 52/48 advantage. The Knights and Preds split the first 2 in Sin City, then Vegas went into Nashville and took Games 3 and 4, both in OT. With a 3-1 lead, the Knights returned to the fortress with a chance to clinch and advance to the Semifinals, but thanks to a timely goal from Evgeny Kuznetsov late in the 3rd period, the Preds were able to send the series to a 6th, and eventually a 7th game. Reilly Smith was the Game 7 hero, beating Jaro Halak twice, including the GWG, to cap off a dramatic victory for the Golden Knights.

Game Results:
Game 1: 6-4 NSH (Kuznetsov)
Game 2: 4-2 VGK (Voracek)
Game 3: 4-3OT VGK (Voracek)
Game 4: 3-2OT VGK (Simek)
Game 5: 4-3 NSH (Kuznetsov)

2ND ROUND RESULTS

CAR v CBJ

In the series that personally gave me some relief that my own team didn't win in the first round, Carolina faced off with Columbus. This one was a bit tilted from the beginning, with the GMs giving Carolina a 60/40 edge. Carolina was stronger in each category except for the PK, and they used those advantages to blow through the 2nd round with a clean sweep. On to face the Vegas Golden Knights in the Semifinals.

Game Results:
Game 1: Who Cares The Game
Game 2: Results Are All Made Up
Game 3: By AK and his random numbers
Game 4: 4-2 CAR (Teravainen)

CAR wins series 4-0

2ND ROUND RESULTS

VAN v COL

"#4 Vancouver and #5 Colorado - the Marijuana Classic. BC Bud vs Denver's finest. Who would take the crown? The GMs thought that the Canucks were a formidable foe. They gave a 60/40 edge to the team that legitimately thinks a 2D hockey stick inside a rectangle is a cool logo (just kidding, I dig it). But this is the playoffs, and anything can happen. Unfortunately for Joe Sakic's Avs, anything didn't happen, and the Canucks cruised to a 4-1 series win thanks to some crucial saves from Robin Lehner and a few key goals scored by the Swedish father-son duo of Elias Pettersson and Nick Backstrom.

Game Results:
Game 1: 5-2 VAN (Schwartz)
Game 2: 4-0 VAN (Bennett)
Game 3: 3-2OT VAN (Backstrom)
Game 4: 4-3OT COL (Marner)
Game 5: 5-3 VAN (Severson)

3RD ROUND RESULTS

TBL v VAN

The Tampa Bay Lightning and the Vancouver Canucks played in the semifinals for the prize of advancing to the Stanley Cup Finals. The GMs judged #1 Tampa to hold a slight edge over #4 Van City, 52/48, most of which could be attributed to a stellar Bolts back-end led by proven OG's Victor Hedman and Drew "Bad Chirps" Doughty in front of the goalie with the crazy eyes, Andrei Vasi... y'all know how it's spelled. Games 1 and 2 went to the Bolts on home ice thanks to some clutch goals by the 79th pick in the 2014 draft, Brayden Point. As the series turned to the west coast, Vancouver was able to grab their first win of the series in decisive fashion, but Tampa pushed the Nucks to the brink of elimiation by winning game 4. Game 5 was an instant classic - Adam Gaudette banged home a rebound in OT to keep the Canucks' hopes alive. Then the teams traveled all the way across the continent and VAN stole game 6 thanks to another OT goal, this time from Captain Bo Horvat. The #4 seed had climbed all the way back from a 3-1 deficit. It all came down to a Game 7 showdown...

Game Results:
Game 1: 4-3 TBL (Point)
Game 2: 4-1 TBL (Point)
Game 3: 3-2 VAN (Stecher)
Game 4: 5-3 TBL (Stralman)
Game 5: 3-2 (OT) VAN (Gaudette)
Game 6: 2-1 (OT) VAN (Horvat)
Game 7: 5-2 TBL (Kucherov)

TBL wins series 4-3

3RD ROUND RESULTS

VGK v CAR

The #2 Vegas Golden Knights had one more obstacle keeping them from reaching the Finals, and that obstacle was the #3 Carolina Hurricanes. GMs voted and the results pegged Carolina as the better team by a 55/45 margin. The Knights started off on the right foot with a decisive Game 1 win in the Fortress. A goal in overtime by Jakub Vrana flipped the home-ice advantage to the Canes after 2 games had been played. As the series was sent to Raleigh, the Canes continued to build steam. They found themselves with a 3-1 series lead heading back to Vegas. Game 5 was much like Games 3 and 4, as it seemed like the Golden Knights had run out of steam. A 2nd-period goal by John Carlson proved to be the game-winner. The Canes are advancing to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Game Results:
Game 1: 4-0 VGK (JT Miller)
Game 2: 2-1 (OT) CAR (Vrana)
Game 3: 3-1 CAR (Zibanejad)
Game 4: 5-2 CAR (Buchnevich)
Game 5: 4-3 CAR (Carlson)

STANLEY CUP FINAL RESULTS

TBL v CAR

The #1 Tampa Bay Lightning and the #3 Carolina Hurricanes met in the v4 Stanley Cup Finals. Let's look at how each team got here. Both teams swept their first round opponents. Tampa was tested by Philadelphia in Round 2, but despite the #1 team entering the series with an unfavorable GM vote, they were able to get the bounces and come out on top in 6 games. Carolina moved to 8-0 after two rounds thanks to series wins over Minnesota and Columbus. The Lightning beat out the Canucks in a seven-game battle to advance to the Finals. Vegas was ousted by Carolina, setting up our Stanley Cup Final.

Game Results:
Game 1:
Amalie Arena was loud for Game 1. The home team brought out Marty St. Louis for the ceremonial puck drop and when he ripped off his breakaway pants, his quads stole the show. The first game set the tone for the series. It was a very tense, back-and-forth affair. Neither team could break through... until a 3rd period goal from Connor Garland put the Bolts up 2-1 in the game and 1-0 in the series.
2-1 TBL (Garland)
Series: 1-0 TBL

Game 2:
The Lightning picked up right where they left off in Game 2. They scored a couple early goals and didn't look back. Vasilevskiy picked up a shutout and the Bolts took a commanding 2-0 series lead.
3-0 TBL (Dadonov)
Series: 2-0 TBL

Game 3:
The teams traveled to Raleigh to play Games 3 and 4. Despite being down 2-0, the Canes had plenty of life. They used their Finnish connection to tilt the rink, finishing off a couple of beautiful passing plays on the power play to claw their way closer to back into the series.
4-1 CAR (Laine)
Series: 2-1 TBL

Game 4:
The 4th game was a chance for CAR to get the series back to even, and also a way to guarantee a return visit to Raleigh with a potential Game 6. Neither team could break through in regulation time. In overtime, a timely save at one end of the ice led to an odd-man rush at the other end. The 3-on-2 became a 4-on-2 when Anton Stralman crept into the play and buried his 7th career playoff goal. The Bolts would return to Tampa with a series lead and some momentum.
4-3 (OT) TBL (Stralman)
Series: 3-1 TBL

Game 5:
Game 5 was what the Workaholics would call "tight butthole". Neither team would give up an inch on the ice (that's 2.54 cm for the Canadians in the crowd). The Canes scored first, but the Lightning answered on the power play. The game stayed 1-1 through regulation and for the second consecutive game, this time in an elimination scenario, we had Stanley Cup Finals Overtime.
2-1 (OT) CAR (Laine)
Series: 3-2 TBL

Game 6:
Carolina survived a dramatic Game 5 and returned to Raleigh with hopes of forcing a Game 7. The home crowd seemed to empower them; when Jordan Binnington was interviewed before the game, he said "it helps to have the home crowd there to settle some nerves". Just kidding, he didn't say that. The power play came through again for the Cardiac Canes, and they successfully extended the series to a dramatic game 7.
4-2 CAR (Carlson)
Series: 3-3

Game 7:
This is what we live for... Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. I did some perusing through the simulations, and game 7 of these finals was the closest game out of any of the games in the v4 playoffs. The game-point margin was 0.2 points. That's 0.2 points out of the 65 points that determine an outcome. 0.3% of the points. 32.6 to 32.4. Get it? It was insanely close. The kind of drama that you can only pray for when you set up a random number generator and a voting system to decide these types of things. The sort of thing that when you type up a narrative like I'm doing now, you get to say this: "Game 7 Triple Overtime!". In the 109th minute of the last game of the season, Tyler Johnson took a pass from Victor Hedman. He flew down the right side and dropped his shoulder on John Carlson. He looked up just in time to see the poke check from Binnington. Dekes to the backhand. Puck on end, he swipes at it to get just enough power on the shot. Over the sliding pad of the goalie, into the net. Red light, game over, series over, your Tampa Bay Lightning are Stanley Cup Champions!!! Congratulations to General Manager @TabooPenguo!
3-2 (3OT) TBL (Johnson)

Thanks to everyone for playing along. I hope everyone enjoyed another season of the GM Game. Offseason shenanigans are starting ASAP.

TBL wins 4-3

Im sorry if ive missed anyone. First and foremost, congrats to @TabooPenguo on winning the stanley cup. We are officially in the offseason. At this point the following processes will be a go: Trades are now available to be made (cannot trade 2022 picks until after the draft, please make sure when trading you note the contract terms/player rights in the deals this is big for multiple player swaps). You may now present BOG with your 1 ufa extension at this time. We are doing the draft starting on may 15th. Additionally we couldnt think of a truly fair way to deal with undrafted player signings, that being said if your current team has signed that player you may sign them to your active team, IF You do not want to sign this player you can neglect to sign them and these players will go into some sort of lottery system where claims and a random winner will be selected. Furthermore, we are looking at teams that A) didnt vote in the playoffs at all and B) that just werent that active and may or may not replace your spot for people who are willing. AK has all the lists of people who voted so if you didnt vote at all, you're on the hotseat. You should know who you are. I think that about wraps it up. we will be doing more RFA signings as well as addressing the 2020-2021 league year going forward. Any questions reach out to bog.

Due to unclear UFA rights trading rules, BOG is initiating a trade freeze for the rights of UFA's. This includes the previous schenn and markstrom deals. This allows us to look at the rules without it getting more complicated than it needs to be. We will get back to you soon on this issue.

As we approach 2 weeks ahead of the in game draft, please follow this link to the list of BEST AVAILABLE PLAYERS to use as your guide to who you may want to select.
This list will also be used as the guide for any GMs who miss their drafting spot.
Meaning, as we've done in the past, if you miss your selection time slot you will be automatically given the "best available player" on the list.

IMPORTANT UFA RULES UPDATE

The following has been updated in the V4 Rules Document:

UFA rights may be dealt following the conclusion of the playoffs and before the Free Agency Period, and these acquired rights may be signed using each team's 1 UFA extension, provided the extension has not already been used on another player. Due to this change the following modifications have been made as well:

For UFA's rights that are owned prior to or at the trade deadline and make it to the free agency pool, the home team will get a 10% boost in determining the winning bid (Contract length x AAV x 110% = bidding points).

For UFA's rights that are acquired after the TDL and make it to the free agency pool, the home team will get a 5% boost in determining the winning bid (Contract length x AAV x 105% = bidding points).

UFA signing trade limitations:
Based on the term offered to UFA's (for both extensions and Free Agent pickups), the player cannot be traded until a certain date as follows...
1 year UFA contract: Cannot be traded until December 1 of the season contract applies to.
2 year UFA contract: Cannot be traded until July 1 of the second season the contract applies to.
3 or more year UFA contract: Cannot be traded until December 1 of the second season the contract applies to.

That wraps up all official rule modifications passed by the BOG regarding free agency. It is worth noting that the BOG is currently working on a policy to reduce the effect of "outrageous" UFA bids in relation to the market, as these contracts are crippling to future teams and dampen the long term viability of the game. Keep an eye out for a formal roll out of that policy as well as a official entry draft schedule in the near future.

Thank you.

1 year UFA contract: Cannot be traded until December 1 of the season contract applies to.
2 year UFA contract: Cannot be traded until July 1 of the second season the contract applies to.
3 or more year UFA contract: Cannot be traded until December 1 of the second season the contract applies to.

That wraps up all official rule modifications passed by the BOG regarding free agency. It is worth noting that the BOG is currently working on a policy to reduce the effect of "outrageous" UFA bids in relation to the market, as these contracts are crippling to future teams and dampen the long term viability of the game. Keep an eye out for a formal roll out of that policy as well as a official entry draft schedule in the near future.

Thank you.


Yea....like that Eberle signing awesome face

Friendly reminder that next season the game will be based on dom's game score model, outlined here behind a paywall. You can ask me specific questions about it. I trust that it's a better representation of reality than our old system

Attention GMs, the official schedule of the Entry Draft Beginning Friday May 15th is posted below.

2020 V4 Entry Draft Schedule

Items of Note: First Overall Pick can be made at 10am EST on Friday May 15th. The first round pick windows are all one hour, second through third rounds with half hour pick window and rounds four through seven pick windows of 15 minutes. Picks are "on the clock" between 10am EST and 11pm EST, but picks may be made during the night/morning between the start and finish date of the draft if GMs wish to get ahead of schedule.

Each Pick is only due at the deadline listed in the schedule. Picks can be made earlier than the given window provided that the team picking is formally on the clock. If you know in advance that you would like to autopick from the given BPA list for either the entire draft or past a certain round, please let the BOG know before the start of the draft if possible so that your autopick can be made quickly. Autopick List - Autopick List

Check to make sure the player who you've drafted has NOT been previously selected by another team. Check the 2019 draft list as well as the autopick list for later round picks who might've been already drafted in last years GM Game entry draft. The drafted player will belong to the first team that selected the player, and subsequent teams who drafted the player again will be autopicked using the list as it stands at the point the error is caught.

If you know you will not be able to make you pick window, you may message a BOG member you trust with a preferred players at that spot list so that you can select a player you'd like to. Such communication should be clearly communicated between both parties so there is no confusion or accusation of missed windows on purpose or by accident.

The draft will be over by 5/21/20 at 3pm EST.

Note that all pick deadlines are in Eastern Standard Time!!!

If you have any questions or concerns, please bring it up with a BOG member so the issue can be addressed. Thanks.

IMPORTANT VOTING AND BOG NEWS

All, due to recent events the current BOG group has decided to put the following “responsibility policy” up to vote among all GMs. The vote is pass/fail based on the way this exact policy is worded. Read through the policy in its entirety and vote in the link attached (CF Poll). The deadline to vote is Thursday, May 14th at 11:59pm EST.

Responsibility Policy

Responsibility Policy Vote

There also will be full voting for a new BOG group beginning once voting is posted on Friday (just before the start of the draft). If you are interested in running, please post that in this thread: BOG Candidacy Thread. Put that you are throwing your name into the ring for candidacy, and a short blurb about why GMs should vote for you as a BOG member. Only GMs may run for BOG. Candidacy bids are due by Thursday May 14th at 12pm (Noon) EST to ensure that the list of candidates is final for voting to begin on Friday. Voting will be conducted by Google Forms and it will be ranked choice voting in a points system with the 5 highest point getters becoming BOG (points awarded will depend on how many candidates enter, a first place vote on a ballot would be worth 7 points if there are 7 candidates, 8 if 8 candidates, so on and so forth; Last place on your ballot gets 1 point).

BOG responsibilities include enforcement of policies as written in the rules doc, creating a format for undrafted free agents (European, NCAA, and CHL) for this year and going forward, running free agency, covering roster inputs for scoring system, monitoring trades, preparing the system for the entry draft, negotiating player contracts during the offseason, aiding in running the playoffs, running future votes, and other various responsibilities. The most time intensive part of the season tends to be the offseason. If you are not prepared for this commitment for at a minimum of 3 months, please do not run for BOG.

EDIT:

One last detail I forgot to mention - timelines for all significant events:
Responsibility Policy Voting: now - Thursday, May 14th at 11:59 pm EST
BOG Candidacy: now - Thursday, May 14th at 12pm (noon) EST
BOG voting: Friday morning, May 15th - Monday, May 18th at 11:59pm EST

New BOG will formally take over governing power on Thursday, May 21st at the end of the entry draft (approx. 3pm EST).

If you have already made a new page, please fix/make sure your prospects and ahl players are accurate. any udfa's that were signed after jan 1 are not included on your roster, make sure contracts match what you signed them to this year or what they were previously signed to in game. noticed a few so far of teams that have the same player on their roster as another team or theres udfas on rosters. Taking the extra 10 minutes now to make sure your page is correct is going to make it alot easier in the long run.
