Thunder Bay (AP) - The newest FCHL franchise, the Ottawa Limidonks, would like to introduce their first ever roster player, Jordan Staal.Jordan Staal was acquired in exchange for cap space in 2008/09, and 2009/10; $7 and $2 respectively, from the Altoona Maroons. Jordan, just 19 years old, is signed through 2011/12 at 25 cents. As an 18 year old, Jordan scored 29 goals in the NHL, in his rookie season, before regressing a bit last season. The Limidonks anticipate a breakout season, next year, and expect Jordan to be the cornerstone of the organization for years to come.Several hours later, the Limidonks completed another trade, adding two more roster players, and a relatively high draft pick. In exchange for more cap space, $9 in 2009/10, and $4 in 2010/11, General Manager Zach Henderson aquired Daniel Paille and Matt Cullen. In addition to the two players, the Limidonks also received, from the asdfjkl;s, the 13th overall pick in the upcoming entry draft.With the pick, the Limidonks will be looking to begin stocking the cupboard with a high-end prospect from the 1st round of this season's NHL entry draft.Paille, 24, is a restricted free agent, but declined salary arbitration with the Sabres, and is expected to be signed. Forecasters expect as many as 25 goals and 50 points from him in the upcoming season.Cullen, 31, coming off a good season, despite a late season injury, is expected to continue to contribute to Carolina's offense, and will be looking to better his 49 points in 59 games from last season.Paille and Cullen are both RFAs in the FCHL, but neither will be due a raise. GM Henderson will decide their fates in the coming weeks. Both players can be signed for $1 per season, for up to 5 years."Overall, I'm happy with the way the day went. I gave away too much cap, maybe, but I think it's a small risk for what could be a big reward down the road. Jordan Staal has the size and skill to be a great player, who can put up some big points, especially if he gets on the wing on Sid or Geno's line in Pittsburgh, and for just a quarter, he's a huge bargain if he does breakout," Henderson said from his home in Thunder Bay.He also added, "Cullen should provide some filler while we develop our farm and youth, but should be able to put up some points, and give us a chance to win on any night, and Paille, well, he's another young guy with some upside, who can put the puck in the net. We're starting a dynasty today, and I can't be more excited!"The Limidonks, while currently based in Thunder Bay, ON, will be relocating to Ottawa before the expansion draft, and will play out of the East Market Arena.

That actually woulda been pretty sick.
When I go to a fast food restaurant, and my order comes to $6.28, I like to give the cashier $18.71. They look at me and say 'What's this?' and I say 'I'm all in'. They usually fold.

The thing is, Big M's is based off of Bob's last name. Z is obv based on my first name. Do you see how this makes no sense? The Big H's is a dumb team name.

Also I think he named the team in honour of Frank Mahovlich the original Big M..I dont think Zdeno has coined the BIG Z yet.

Of course not. Zarley Zalapski did.

Limidonks picked up their first Leaf this afternoon. That should gain support from the Mustangs away from asdjkl'.

As a fellow LHE player as well as an Ottawa fan, I feel the time has come to pledge my support to a FCHL team.Equipped with a competent, if sometimes surly GM, I feel the Limidonks will be on the rise in the coming years and I will jump on this bandwagon now.

As a roster tip, you will need at least 8 D to try to fill most nights. I think most teams had 8-9 last season, with the odd team having 10.
