English Interview with jerthebear
A few days ago, I presented an interview of the U18 manager and I promised an overview about U.S. national teams. This time, this is an interview with the U20 national team manager: jerthebear. This is already his third season at the head of the U20 team. The first season was not easy with an eighth-place finish at the world championship in Division I, but the second one was excellent with a fourth-place finish. I hope the team will continue to move forward. The manager does a good job and is constantly improving the team. Let’s take a look at his preparation for the next tournament! Čítaj celý článok

English Interview with capsaicin
There is enough time before the next world cup and I decided to study the three U.S. teams individually. Today we are going to take a look at the U18 National Team, where everything starts. The U18 team did very well season after season for a long time now, and a medal is just what is missing to reward all this hard work. I really hope I do not jinx it guys! Capsaicin really helps for the development of several promising players and a new high quality team grows every season, thanks. His role is not limited by his manager status and he is also a precious scout for the three U.S. national teams. In fact, he should be considered as one of the best managers in PPM and one of the most experimented managers in the U.S. Čítaj celý článok

English Interview on History and Future of this Game
Today we will take a look at PPM not just as a game, but also as a project the has (or had) "heart and soul". As a project that is done by ordinary people, people who have been building this game with enthusiasm that has no equal in this business. They have built the community on a personal level, not from a computer in their office. I have made an interview in a friendly tone with one of these people as you can read here. Čítaj celý článok

The U18 United States National Hockey Team goes into its 5th consecutive season in the top division as the 4th ranked U18 national hockey team in the world. The United States has made the playoffs in 3 out of the last 4 seasons. Finland, Croatia, Russia and Slovakia have also made the playoffs 3 times out of the last 4 seasons. No team has made the playoffs in all 4 of the last 4 seasons. The United States had its best result in season 20 when it lost to eventual champion Portugal in the semifinals and finished in 4th place. Čítaj celý článok

As Christmas approaches, a Cold Mountain White Christmas is about as likely as me winning Power Ball this year (and that ain’t gonna happen). We have flood warnings instead of snow warning in the area. But, Christmas is only a day away. To celebrate, I want to share a little cheer; so I’ve prepared a little poem in the tradition of Christmas in honor of the upcoming PPM hockey playoffs. I hope you enjoy my fun variation on the classic poem “A Visit by Saint Nick” by Clement Clark Moore. Čítaj celý článok

English Catching Up With the Founders
For those joining PPM, after the founding season of hockey it should be suspected that a good bit of work and dedication would be required to become competitive with those teams who began during season 1. This article looks at how well expansion hockey teams (teams founded after season 1) have fared in regards to advancing to Division I making the playoffs and ultimately winning the coveted division 1 championship.

I hope at the least they are food for thought. Čítaj celý článok

English Origin of a Team
The focus for this article is how champion basketball teams choose players for their team. Do the best teams build their team from their farm system (players who show up each Saturday night)? Do they rely on their scouting and build primarily from quality draft picks (players claimed during the two season drafts)? Do elite owners build their teams primarily by buying the best players available on the market? OR, do they rely on building their founding players (players that were assigned to the team at the time they assumed the managing role)? Čítaj celý článok
