We welcome you to the first ever Whalers thread on FCP. Inaugural member and former champion of the FCHL (8years) and reigning champion of the AHL (5years).

After all this time, the organization has decided to finally start its own thread at FCP.
(It appears our head is finally big enough to think we deserve our own thread.)

Entertaining Thread? mmm, probably not.
Witty banter and funny jokes? nah, not so much.
Keen hockey observations? look elsewhere.


The only thing we provide to our fans is CHAMPIONSHIPS.
That, and nostalgia. We are all about nostalgia.

that video pretty much just ruined this thread before it ever got off the ground.
boy, you fluke off one playoff victory and everyone gets all jealous.

Dont let the thread fool you, I've always said, the playoffs are a bigger luckfest than being able to win the regular season crown. For me, I will have considered it a real victory when I win both in the same year. Til then, it was just a good 4 week run.

Also, I prefer to be called T Bone.

It is too late. Already gone to my head.

Come on John, you know how it is. You win a championship in something like AHL, FCHL, FCBL the ones you and I are in, you get all excited.
You know how it is, right, to win it all? Oh....my bad, nevermind.

While John might not have won those, he wins every little side pool that we have done...Like a crazy amount of them.

ya he's really good at the ones that require no management or skills beyond draft day luck.

ooo, too far huh?

truth be known, I agree with Dale, John is the favourite in our conference this year. He's a more than worthy foe who has just had bad luck in the other leagues. He is always one of the best.

I do have a FCBL Championship (and 4 finals in 5 years) but the only thing people remember is how awful a trade I made getting Victor Martinez for Xander Bogarts. :)
Unfortunately I never felt like celebrating that year I won since I clinched the same day as the Lokomotiv crash :(
Make no mistake, Shamu, you are a target this year :) :) :)

I'm just giddy over the start of the season. And hoping I get a couple of more takers in the betting thread. :)
Pretty soon Ill get another injury, lose a couple of games, and never post here again out of pure superstition.

Im a big believer in karma, cockiness and making your own thread is a surefire way to lose. John's got this in the bag, he's gonna roll all over me.
