Default Season 18 Owners


Hello Fellow XBS Members,

After some lengthy discussions behind the scenes, we are proud to announce our owners for Season 18 at XBS. You will see some familiar faces on this list, but also a fair share of new ones. Take the time to read their introductions and offer them thanks and support for volunteering their time and effort towards making this the best place to play hockey. Without further adieu, I present to you the team owners for Season 18 at XBS.


Season 18 Owners


___________________________________________


No Regretzkys
After a rather disappointing Season 17 at the helm of the Tampa Bay Lightning, “Larry” has decided to return as an owner for Season 18. Obviously looking to change his fortunes, No Regretzkys is relocating his squad north of the border to Ottawa where he will look to lead the Senators back to the promised land. He has the experience, enthusiasm, and youth as an owner to get the most out of his teams and I don’t expect this season to be any exception. Will this be the year he finally gets his hands on that elusive Cup and restores pride back to the family?

___________________________________________


GetLowBanks
Getting his Florida Panthers to the finals in Season 17 wasn’t enough for this second year owner so Banks has decided to return and continue where he left off. Banks has a solid rookie season as an owner under his belt, where he gained a wealth of experience, and that will be invaluable has he begins his second campaign. I guess Banks was a big fan of working on his tan on the sunny beaches of Florida because In Season 18 he will be staying in the Sunshine State. Can Banks build upon his very successful rookie season and bring home a championship?

___________________________________________


Makakk88
This rookie owner, known just as “Joe”, has decided to take the plunge here at XBS and take over ownership of the Detroit Red Wings. Makakk has always been one of the most respected players here at XBS and a perennial All-Star, so it will be interesting to see if that talent on the ice can translate to success off of it. He also one of the more soft spoken players here at XBS but don’t let his quiet demeanor fool you. Joe is in this to win it, so keep a close eye on him or before you know it, he will be parading down main street in Hockeytown with the Cup hoisted above his head.

___________________________________________


Allthway
Another rookie owner taking the reins, Allthway has plenty of experience as a player as he has been with us since Season 14. He has always been a solid contributor as both a player and community member and taking ownership just seemed like the natural progression for him. Much to the delight of BBB, Allthway will be relocating the St. Louis Blues franchise to "Original Six" city of Toronto and return one of the most storied franchises to XBS. Can he revive the Maple Leafs franchise and bring them back to their glory days? Time will tell.

___________________________________________


Krimsonfire
Krim has been a very successful owner in the past, even leading the Season 13 Calgary Flames to an XBS Championship. He knows how to draft a team built for success and I don’t expect Season 18 to be any different. And looking to rekindle that old flame, Krim has decided to move the Arizona franchise and bring back the Calgary Flames to XBS. Krim knows what it takes as an owner, so to expect anything less than success from the Flames franchise this season would be a huge mistake.

___________________________________________


Nutty Grandpa
Though he may be relatively new to XBS, Grandpa is absolutely no stranger to management. He has a wealth of experience including 4 years (11 seasons), as an owner at leaguegaming. I have had the pleasure of playing for Grandpa and he knows how to run a team efficiently and effectively. He will be taking the reins in Vancouver and moving the franchise to the Music City of Nashville to revive the Predators...now if he could only convince Carrie Underwood to come on board. Either way, I expect Nutty to give the other owners a run for their money come draft day.

___________________________________________

Congratulations to all of the selections. We know you will all put forth your best effort and make Season 18 a great one!

Sincerely,

Thanks for the kind words and good luck, but not too much, to the other owners.

Like Krim said, thank you for the kind words. I look forward to this. A big change going from Miami to Toronto. Was difficult to pass up the vacancy in Tampa. Thank you again and good luck to all members!



Focus on winning too much

Throwing in a Frenchman is just catering to minorities. (unlike Ubisoft)

Congrats everybody!
