Dear Versus League Team Owner,
I am doing Power Rankings for each league tomorrow.
Please post any stats you maybe holding tonight so they will be included in the
END OF REGULAR SEASON
As you may have noticed we have removed people slow to play or non responsive to
We usually sub these teams in with players from lower leagues or allow some
players to have a team in each conference.
Currently, we only have one team in L1 open and that is the Rangers, it will be
filled in the next day or so.
Taking that in mind the final deadline to get your games in has been established
for each league it is as follows:
Leagues 1, 2, and 3 Thursday June 13th at 1159 PST.
League 4 Thursday June 20th at 1159 PST
Hardcore League Thursday June 27th at 1159 PST
The playoffs will begin the next day after the regular season ends.
Once the playoffs are underway we will take a 2 month hiatus till the new game
comes out in September for Leagues 1-4.
Anyone wishing to play Hardcore League over the summer is welcome and if a
second Hardcore needs to be set up we will do it.
In addition, we are nearing the 3/4 marl of the RRL season and everyone is
eligible to make the RRL playoffs.
Please read the attached RRL
Tutorial Link for further information, scroll down to the playoff
Thats it for now guys L1-L4 you have 4 and a half weeks to finish the season
out. Get cracking!!
Dear NHOL Team League Owner,
Congratulations to Jon Bens winner of the Season 13 L2 NHOL Cup with a 4 games
to 1 win over Chris K.
Capping a great season for both of these fellows.
I want to apologize for the delay it took for the web site redesign and
additions to it.
We had to wait almost a month longer than anticipated to start our recruitment
The current recruitment period has been going very well adding many new quality
people to the Group.
Another recruitment period begins this weekend strictly targeting European and
French Canadian players from Canada, England, Finland, Germany, and Sweden for
Of course a small percentage of these additions will not make the grade long
term, thats part of life.
I still have quite a few registration forms to process, it takes time to
orientate new people and to set up times to do so.
Currently in all 4 leagues there are 10 teams available about 2-3 in each.
These teams should be filled by the end of the weekend.
At that point the first edition of the Season 14 power rankings for each league
will take place.
The results should be posted Monday night.
Each 2 week period we look at the total games played for individuals.
New additions are not included in this group and hopefully they will catch up
Our goal at the end of the weekend should be near the 20 game mark as a target.
Again recent additions to the group are exempt from this number.
As usual if you feel this number will not be made by you, please talk to me so
we can give you additional time to get your games in.
There are 3 people that have been existing owners who have been told hit the
mark this week or else they face replacement.
One of the things that I have always abide by is people that sign on to play and
suddenly disappear, or tell me they are quitting in the middle of the season.
Everyone has 1 forgiveness, but if you sign on again and do it again, basically
your NHOL career is over for Versus League play.
We want people who are committed to the system.
I have included a link to our Versus
League Team Owners List. <-----LINK
On this list you will find every current Play Station Network name in your, and
all the leagues.
Please send friends requests to everyone with a small message in the optional
message box saying as example "This is L3 Trev Bruins Owner".
Also please accept the requests you receive because it will allow you to track
people currently not on Groupme, and expedite game play invites instead of
searching for names.
People really enjoy streaming. If you know how to stream under a good connection
please do and post it in the chat people love watching NHOL players play.
If you do not know how the Admins can help you do so, just ask.
In conclusion the last issue I would like to talk about is the 5 Goal Rule.
I am getting complaints that it is not being adhered to.
The rule is that when up by 5 goals do not shoot at the opposing goalie.
Do not cycle the puck and do not attack the player with the puck in their
Take the puck over center ice or up to his blue line dump it in and fall back
and play defense.
Yes its boring but we are not here to humiliate people.
That is it for now gentlemen. Play Nice and play often!
Dear Versus Team League Owner,
Please read the following information and ask questions if needed.
SEASON 13 PLAYOFFS
Tremendous job getting the first round match ups completed.
Of 44 1st round series 43 have been completed and the last one will be completed
There was a serious family medical issue with one of the participants that
In order for the continuing rounds to be completed it is up to you and your
opponent to contact each other via on both Groupme private message and Play
Station Messaging. Keyword both.
The Admins sat down and restructured some of the players due to the addition of
the L4 league to get a better grouping of players by ability.
Think of L1 as our top players, L2 a shade below that, and so on down the line.
There really is not much difference when you compare L1 to L2, L3 to L4 or L2 to
Anyone who wishes to be in a higher or lower league please contact Trev, and he
and the group will make the adjustments.
Players that are still alive playing we have to wait to see what the playoff
outcomes are in also judging what league you will be placed.
I will update the brackets as a couple of series have been played since this
Traditionally teams that win a league or finish in the top 4 or so get moved up.
SEASON 14 DRAFT
The Season 14 Draft is now open.
As rounds end in the playoffs eliminated teams will be added to it, the
tiebreaker is your regular season point total.
Also any new recruits will be added and I have a backlog new player
registrations forms to process.
The new recruits will be more extensively screened in RRL as far as game play
ability goes going forward, unless they are brought in by a current member
Please look over the current NHOL
SEASON 14 DRAFT BOARD.

SEASON 14 LEAGUES
Here is the Season 14 lineup of leagues available in Versus 1 vs 1 going
We are forecasting a L5 and L6 next fall.
No one will be playing in more than one L1-L4 League (exception is the new
HardCore League listed below) as we begin.
New recruits will be added as we go.
Subs used down the line if needed.
The season for all 4 leagues will end on Wednesday April 10th at 1159 PST.
During the 16 weeks players are expected, to stay at a pace of 4 games per week.
If someone hits more than 12 back of the pace they will be warned and could be
As soon as the schedule for each league is uploaded on the website the leagues
are open for play.
All of our European friends are still in L1-L4, and it i amazing how most of
them completed 95% of their scheduled games last season.
In addition, most of them came in midway in the season.
While they play we will begin a major expansion into the European League base
All of our Euro buddies are assisting in this, and I am emailing them to set up
a meeting time as their input will be greatly needed.
Many of the elite L1 players have made comments in past seasons, and the current
one that certain players play in a manner that is frowned upon in the NHL 19
This is nothing new that I am hearing.
In the past we did not have people play with strict rules in the leagues.
We have the basic rules:
The 5 goal mercy rule.
No scratched players.
No diving in the offensive zone, and these rues are currently in effect and will
be the same next season in L1-L4.
We had these simple rules rather than fight about game play styles in chat
The thought process was people will self govern themselves about unwritten
rules, and EA World Championships play rule less on a whole.
A group of Elite players are putting together the small list of rules they think
needs to be added to the Hardcore League.
These rules will only apply to the Hardcore League for Season 14.
Once I receive the rules and post them on the site the Hardcore League will open
for play with a draft.
My only rules that are mandatory to play in the Hardcore League are as follows:
You must have a stable connection to your play station either hardwired or the
You must be able to stream your game, or learn how to copy the game file at the
end of the game to a USB.
With this in effect, the League Admins will then hear your complaints about game
play styles and warnings could go out.
Players from L1-L4 are welcome to play in the Hardcore League, as a second team
in Versus 1vs1 NHOL play.
If you wish to play in the HardCore League pleas email Admin@NHOL.Leaguesonline.Net and
state you want in.
We all have friends that might like to play with our group. Some are great guys
like your selves some are goof offs.
It never falls on you if you refer a friend to the group and they just do not
live up to our character standards.
That being said any friends you have now is the time to get them orientated and
set up with a team we have limited open spots,
Last week the Power Rankings and Season 13 Awards were announced. If you missed
them check below.
Regular Season 13 Final Power Rankings
POWER RANKINGS LEAGUE 1

Things are going well, and I see great things for the Group as far as growth,
fun, and great rivalries starting.
What sets the NHOL apart from other leagues is we are made of character.
Sure you may see someone blow up in the chat, it can happen.
BUT IT NEVER HAPPENS TWICE
Have fun kids and good luck if your still alive in the playoffs or for Season
