    Minnesota Amateur Hockey League - 1951 Playoffs

    Those are all really interesting ideas, I'll definitely think about those.

    Minnesota Amateur Hockey League - 1951 Playoffs

    1951 Playoffs Knockout Round: Thunder Bay easily takes care of the Brewers. The Voyageurs "upset" Austin, advancing to face their division rivals from Superior. The Waves impressive season comes to an end after the Stars shut them out 3-0. Warroad knocks off Virginia and advances. Second Round: The top seeded Bear Cats are just too much for the Giants to handle as they get swept. International Falls looks to repeat last years playoffs, and they're off to a good start after beating Hibbing and advancing. In a rivalry game, the Lakers just got the better of Duluth. The Defending champs faced off with Ely and showed the Bears why they are considered a threat to go back to back, sweeping Ely. The ever powerful Reds dominated Roseau all series, only giving up 31 shots in the two game sweep. The Saints met up with the Dragoons for a very physical series which saw St. Paul walk of in overtime in game 3. in a major upset, the Warroad Lakers knock off the 3 seeded Victorias. Rochester won their league, but still had a difficult time with the Millers who forced overtime in game 3, the Mustangs luckily were able to light the lamp and reach the quarter finals. Quarter Finals: St. Cloud avenges last years heartbreaking upset loss to the Ice, winning the series 3-1. In a rematch of last years "Battle of the Bridge", the Hornets again got the better of their rivals and reached the semis. The Saints and Reds had a series to remember, the offense was on display all series, with an average of 9 combined goals per game, the Reds ultimately came out on top and will advance. The Lakers continue their run, this time sweeping the winners of the Valley league. Semi Finals: Coming off of a big series win, the Hornets just didn't seem to have the energy they had against the Lakers, St. Cloud took advantage and took the series 4-2. Warroad looked like they could really do it after winning game one in Eveleth, but things changed quickly, the Reds went on to win the next 4 and won the series. Will the Bear Cats win their first cup? Or will Eveleth become the winningest team in league history by winning their fifth? Let me know what you think, comments are appreciated!

    I was thinking more along the lines of which teams should compete for a trophy

    My simming method remains the same, in the past I would sim and figure out standings then randomly apply records to teams so things haven't really changed in those regards. The top 4 teams from every league get a playoff birth. Thank you, and no not at all, there are other cities in the area considering joining in the next few years, so who knows how long it will last before some teams split. I'm open to suggestions from people on rivalry trophies, there are a lot of rivalries in the league so let me know which ones you guys think deserve a trophy, I think the Battle of Duluth will have one for next year.

    Thank you, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Yeah, sorry about that, I would just have to add so many teams between MN and there that it would probably more than double the size of the league I have planned. Also, thank you for pointing the Hornets error out, it's now fixed.

    The 1950/51 season concluded and here are the stories. Iron Range Hockey League: The Eveleth Reds claimed their fourth straight league title. Hibbing had another impressive season, led by 23 year old center Michael Polich, the Hounds finished with 18 wins and finished in second. Ely took a step back, but still took third place. Virginia bounced back after a poor season and actually managed to reach the playoffs. Grand Rapids had a surprisingly poor season, finishing with only 9 wins and taking fifth place. Soudan's years of relevance appear to have passed as they drop down to sixth place. And the Flames remained at the bottom yet again. Lake Superior Hockey League: The defending champs from Duluth fell out of the top spot in the league, passed by the Lakers who claimed their first league title. Thunder Bay improved from a disastrous season a year ago, thanks in large part to the emergence of Joshua Staal as a two way threat. The Voyageurs had an alright year by their standards, making the playoffs despite finishing just below .500. Cloquet remained in fifth, and the Wolves in last for the third straight year. Northland Hockey League: St. Cloud repeated as league champs, with an impressive 20 wins. International Falls improved to second place after a huge playoff push last season. Roseau finished in third place, and took the Victory Bell from the Lakers who finished right behind them in fourth. Fort Frances had a pretty average season, finishing at .500 and just missing the playoffs. Thief River Falls jumped up to fifth place, led by a wave of youngsters, including an pair of identical twin wingers, Zach and Jack Smith. Bemidji continues to drop, but finish above Fergus Falls by one win. The Norsemen struggle immensely in their first season in the league, winning only 3 games and tying 2. Twin Cities Hockey League: The St. Paul Victorias reclaimed the top spot in the league, winning the Twin Cities for the 10th time, they also retained the Milk Jug. The Saints dropped one spot, finishing second, but still had a really solid all around season. The Millers had another good season, finishing third in the league for the second straight year. West St. Paul made some waves in the league this year, jumping up to fourth and making the playoffs for the first time. The Vulcans had a poor season and dropped out of the playoffs, and with an aging core, things aren't looking good for them. South St. Paul finished in sixth, just a tie ahead of the Braves in their first season. The Bruins remained in last place. Valley Hockey League: Rochester won their second straight league title, with the Dragoons remaining in second. Austin improved quite a bit this season, jumping from last place to third in one year. La Crosse finished in fourth place, making the playoffs, but not looking that good compared to the Mustangs and Dragoons. Winona finished just out of the playoffs in their first year, and the Chiefs dropped to last place in the Valley. Rivalry Trophies The Milk Jug St. Paul Victorias (3-1 Series) The Miners Hard Hat Ely Black Bears (4-0 Series) The Victory Bell Roseau Stars (2-2, goal differential 12-10 Stars) I have decided to stop keeping track of records it would be way too time consuming with the amount of teams that are set to join soon, and since I made a new graphic I thought now would be a good time to stop. Let me know what you think, comments are appreciated!

    Had to take a look at where that is, and I would say that I don't think that expansion would get nearly that far, sorry. Thank you, I'm glad you like it!

    I see where you're coming from, but I think it fits. IMO it reminds me of the old Detroit Tigers logos with the smooshed faces. As for 47, it is my favorite number and the one I have used for every team and intend to keep using in the future, teams will begin to start having different number fonts soon though.

    Prior to the 1950/51 season, the MAHL announced that there would be a new trophy, the "Tschida Trophy" will be granted to the most valuable player in the league, this will include players from every league and it includes both the regular season and post season. It is named after the great coach/player of the Twin Cities Vulcans who announced his retirement this off season. The League also announced that three new franchises would be joining for the upcoming season. Alexandria will join the Northland Hockey League, White Bear Lake will join the Twin Cities Hockey League, and Winona will join the Valley Hockey League. Alexandria is a slightly larger than average sized town for the area with a population just above 6,000. With their relative closeness to Fergus Falls and St. Cloud, locals felt they deserved a team as well. The nickname "Norsemen" was chosen due to the huge population of Scandinavian immigrants in the city. Their logo is a capital A for Alexandria, wearing a winged helmet, based off of old drawings and sculptures of Norse gods. The team colors are black, red, and white. White Bear Lake is a very small city compared to the rest of the Twin Cities League with a population of less than 4,000. But residents of the city have a history of hockey going back to Elwyn "Doc" Romnes who played professionally from 1928-1940, and Frank "Moose" Goheen who has become a legend in the city, playing semi pro in the 20's and 30's. The nickname "Braves" goes way back to the origin story of the cities name. The story in short tells the tale of a Brave of one tribe and the Chiefs daughter of another tribe falling in love, when the Brave is on his way to meet the chiefs daughter in their spot, he discovers her being attacked by a white bear. The Brave stabs and kills the bear, but in doing so died himself. If you are interested in reading the whole story, then click here. Their logo is a B for Braves with feathers. The team colors are navy and orange. Winona is one of the largest cities in the southern part of the state, with a population around 25,000. With almost all of the other large cities in the region getting teams, a group of locals decided to form their own team and join the Valley League. The team will be called the "Wildcats". Their logo is a front facing wildcat growling. The team colors are black, and blue. Let me know what you think, comments are appreciated!

    Here are some updated 3D versions of the jerseys so you can see how they'd look on a more realistic jersey. I'm really happy with how this turned out, thanks to everyone who left feedback and commented on this thread!

    TBH I felt the same way when I looked at the records and saw they had only won two prior.

    I had that originally, but I tried this and I rally liked how it looked. I think it keeps it more balanced since the front logo is primarily that steel blue
