Little Lopezers

On Sept. 20, 2016, The Duck Hunters, have sold a majority stake to outside investors & have rebranded themselves as The Little Lopezers. Rumours have been swirling for the past hour that one of the investors is none other than Mr. Ernesto Rivas. Word on the street is that he will be majority shareholder & fire the whole staff.

Mr Hayden, traded Henrik Zetterberg and his 3rd round pick(Marian Hossa) to acquire The Knee High P.I.s 1st round pick. With that pick he got I think one of the best goaltenders in the league(Lundqvist). I pretty much figured the trade ended up being Zetterberg and Hossa for Lundqvist; but like Mr. Hayden had said-that trade actually helped him make his strategy in drafting Joe Thornton. Any way you look at it, its a good trade for both teams.

My biggest threat comes from this franchise, but I think that they're on the decline. Mr Hayden drafts well and takes his time with players, but I really don't think he will threepeat. The Knee High P.I. dynasty was born the day we laced those cheese cuter skates dating back to the days of Brother Hesekiah. Who does the McDonald family even have to compare? No tradition or history at all.

On another note, it shows who the winning franchise is when The Duck Hunters also attempted to sign a rugged defencemen by the name of Robert, who is also talented musically on the keyboard. They had a verbal agreement until I walked outside to get some fresh air. Robert took one look, saw me with my tuxedo and had a vision of so many Stanley Cups; he immediately walked away from The Duck Hunters to come to me and sign right on the spot for the league minimum-$1.

Prediction for 2023-24: 2nd Place
