Upon the release of Garth Charlesworth, the former team captain (see press release below), the Totems have begun moving in a younger direction after the benefits of drafting talented defensemen the last several years have finally paid off.
Aaron Horne (82 overall), a 20-year-old defenseman, has signed an 8 year contract and will begin the season with the big club. Bradley Dabbs (81 overall), just a year older at 21, will begin in the minors to develop his game.
The Totems hope to get Horne in as much game action as possible while Dabbs could see up to a few games in Seattle.
Elvis Erway (76 overall), a 22-year-old checker, is also slated to begin the season with the big club and could find himself in the opening lineup to start the Totems' second season of Level 3 action. 1 day, 18 hours ago | Seattle Totems
Upon winning their third Metro Cup to advance to Level 3, the Seattle Totems have begun moving in a different direction. Tonight we thank Garth Charlesworth for 13 seasons of service and dedication. The 33-year-old defenseman was 20 years of age and the Totems' highest-rated player at the franchise's inception. Serving as captain for all 13 years, he provided the leadership and experience. He truly led from behind the play, amassing 764 points in 912 games.
He will leave behind good friend Wade Woody, his defensive partner for every single game all 13 seasons. Woody was an 18-year-old upon the creation of the Totems, and was the second highest-rated player behind Charlesworth. The two quarterbacked the highly effective powerplay.
Wade Woody now remains the only player on the Totems' roster to have been with the team since its first season, and will assume captain duties for his longtime friend. The Totems wish Garth Charlesworth the best of luck wherever he ends up. 1 day, 18 hours ago | Seattle Totems

Both players were instrumental in the team's last 2 Metro Cup wins, and they are also the only players in franchise history to reach the 1000 point mark with the club. Congratulations to both! 1 month, 1 week ago | Sept-Iles Canadiens
METROHO is a browser-based multiplayer hockey game that combines an interactive hockey simulator with an engaging web community. In METROHO, you own, manage, and coach your own team. The advantage METROHO offers is enough statistics and features to make the game all that it should be, without any overwhelming complications. [Screenshots]
Key Features Include:
Ability to play games manually.
You start off by creating your own team which will consist of 15 forwards, 8 defensemen, and 3 goalies, each with their own age and skill level. Next, you sign these players and other free agents to your team while staying under the $65 Million salary cap. Once you're ready, join a league.
Public Leagues consist of 10 teams in a season that lasts 20 days. Your team will play each of the league's other teams 8 times for a season total of 72 games. Half the games will be played at home, while the rest will be played on the road. The advantage of home games is that you can manually start the game any time during its scheduled day. This is a key feature of METROHO, as during a home game simulation, you can select the lines you want for each round.
If you can't find a league you like, you can create your own league of 10 or 15 teams. Leagues can even be made private so that only your friends can join!
The top 8 teams in a league's standings, after the season is over, advance to the playoffs, following a one day hiatus. Playoffs involve three series with each series being a best of 3, 5, or 7 (depending on your league's settings) to determine the league's champion. Playoffs last nine days. This means that once your team joins a league, the league's season and playoffs will last a grand total of 30 days.
Competition is fierce as there are both team and player awards to be won, not to mention the bragging rights that go with a large fan base. All teams start off in Level One and strive for promotion into higher level leagues which feature progressively bigger trophies.
