Season Outlook
November 20, 2019
The plan for this season is simple, win the WEHL Stanley Cup. The only thing standing in the way of the Leafs at least challenging for the Cup could be injuries to key players. One of those key players would be Erik Karlsson. Karlsson was picked up in the off season from the New York Islanders. Karlsson has struggled a bit in the past couple seasons to stay healthy. It hasn't been done yet but rumor is that Karlsson will be named captain before the start of the season. A strong top 6 that features James Van Riemsdyk, Dylan Strome, Vladimir Tarasenko, Bryan Little, Sam Reinhart and Anders Lee, who re-signed with the team as a free agent. "We're very happy to have Lee back with us. He has been a very important part of our team and can't wait to see what he can do this season" said Leafs GM Polley. Along with the forward group the Leafs have made a strong D core even stronger by adding Karlsson. With Karlsson the Leafs boast a formidable defense with Marc Staal, Jonas Brodin, Stephen Johns, Travis Sanheim, Robert Hagg, along with top young prospects Erik Brannstrom, Dennis Cholowski and Radim Simek. Simek was picked up in the draft but is an experienced D man having seen time in the Czech leagues and International play he will more than likely see ice time this season. To top it all off the Leafs have the best goaltender in the WEHL between the pipes in Pekka Rinne. "I can't wait for the season to begin!" GM Polley said with a big grin on his face.
Sens Roster Set To Begin The New Season
Ottawa Senators
November 19, 2019
Senators did very little on the free agent market this season with only one minor signing of back-up goalie C.Pickard. Sens are happy with the balance of our forwards with some young guns and some solid vets to balance out the scoring. D is where we are most excited about this new season being led by young studs like Charlie McAvoy, Victor Mete and Vince Dunn. John Klingberg and Nick Leddy will be our minute eaters but reinforcements are coming. In nets Malcolm Subban has not been developing as quickly as we had hoped for but we have drafted solid big goalies for the future in Jake Oettinger, Daniel Vladar and Alexis Gravel. Let’s drop the puck!
FLAMES SIGN 4 PLAYERS - LOOK TO DEAL FROLIK
November 18, 2019
The Calgary Flames used free agency to fill out it’s roster for the start 2019/2020 season by signing 4 free agents. Primarily focusing on it’s 4th line and 6th defenseman spots, the Flames signed forwards Branden Tanev, Brandon Pirri & Mark Letestu to contracts along with defenseman Luke Schenn.

Defensive specialist Brandon Tanev was the surprise signing. With the Flames needing to open up some cap space, Flames signed Tanev to a $3.5M AAV/6-Year contract. To make room for Tanev, the Flames will now look to deal 2-way forward Michael Frolik for youth or draft picks.

Luke Schenn will battle newly drafted Nick Seeler as the teams 6th defenseman spot. The two are expected to split time this season.

Pirri was brought in to provide offensive depth to the 4th line and Mark Letestu comes in as faceoff specialist who can play a responsible 2-way game while playing limited minutes. JT Brown will most likely be hitting the waiver wire in the coming days.
