    This pool will run the same, (better) than the TB regular season pool.

    If you wish to enter, PM me your team. Here are the condition for selecting your team:



    you are allowed to pick any 3 forwards, 2 defense, and 1 goalie.

    You are NOT allowed to pick more than 1 player from any team.

    ie: montreal forward, nj forward, ottawa forward, calgary defense, detroit defense, philly goalie. all players from different teams.


    I would also ask that you predict the winner of the Cup. (see below)



    in the event that somebody picks the same teams, the team that was entered later will be allowed to change players. So try to get your teams in quickly.



    Points are scored:

    1 goal - 1 point
    1 assist - 1 point
    1 win - 1 point
    shutout - +2 and a win
    goalie goal - +2 and a goal

    Cup winner - 1 point *** In the event of a tie between poolies, the person who predicts, or is closest to predicting the Cup winner will be given a tie-breaking point for the win. Closest to, as in rounds won.

    ie: mario and luigi are in a tie. mario predicts ottawa. luigi predicts montreal. mario wins. :bag:


    I'll get an update done every couple of nights so we can keep track of who is on top - and who is on the bottom.... ;)


    May the best bassist win!

    Ha ha, you turncoat. What, not out golfing with the rest of your boys?

    I'll toss a team together and get it off to you this morning sometime. Also, I'd like to remind everyone that there's a pool over on eBay.ca for those Canadians (and anyone else who likes to flaunt the rules) on the board. The pool can be found here and the league is TalkBass password TB. It only takes a few minutes to get your team together (assuming you're already an eBay member) and you can win some pretty cool prizes. I hope we can get everyone to sign up for both.

    Golf is okay. I only hang out at the driving range though.

    Seriously though, I'm more concerned about what Quinn will do....? I heard that the Raptor's are looking for a good coach.

    He's been here so long, I can't tell if we'd be better off with out him. When he was GM/Coach, it didn't really make sense, yet they were winning, so nobody cared. Then Ferguson came and the new NHL, and everything was fubar'd. Reminds of back when Gilmour, and Andrechuk (sp) were playing for the leafs. Lot's of old timers but slower hockey still won games. Then their was a rebuild period - Kaberle, Antropov, etc. Toronto's was long overdue for this collapse. In a way, if they had made it to the playoffs, there wouldn't be this "eye-opening" going on.

    Yeah, lots of us Sens fans were secretly hoping the Leafs would make playoffs. Then we'd be able to eliminate them and get that monkey off our backs. Either that or they'd beat us and the team would pretty much have to fold and hockey would become a forbidden topic in Ottawa.

    Also, if they had made the playoffs Patty Quinn would still be at the helm and they'd live to suck another year. Now they might adjust and become competetive.

    I'm hoping their administration is dense enough to dump a guy like Wellwood... right into our laps. Man that kid is scary, and he'd look great in red.

    bassguitar way out in the lead.... hmm... he did get his team in after the first couple of games.... ;) no worries though. the same thing happened in regular season, and my players came through.
     
  7. Don't worry, I sure my lead won't last long.

    But, I totally cheated and looked at nhl.com before I made my picks!!! :bag:

    Don't even think about taking points away from me!!! :D

    As far as the Leafs go, I'm glad they didn't make the playoffs. If they did, they'd probably make it through to the second round, and then nothing would change for next year.

    Antropov, Belak, Allison, Lindros and Domi can all go. Bye Bye dead weight. Please!!!

    Things are starting to even up with the loss of players.

    That Ottawa game last night was great.

    Can I just have the entire NJ Devils team? ;)
     
  12. Big ups to Edmonton!! What a great game last night - 4 goals in the 3rd period to come from behind and put out Detroit. I like to see the Canadian teams do well, especially when the Laughs, I mean Leafs are out.

    There goes my pick for the finals though, but I still think Ottawa will take the cup. Legace out, but go Pronger go!!!

    Great upset by a Canadian team! I think Edmonton's been looked over this year. I really would really have liked to seen a Battle of Alberta... too bad for Calgary.

    Too bad for me also. Looks like the only way I can win the pool is if Carolina goes all the way. kserg has a pretty good lead, but it will be interesting when the next group of players gets eliminated.

    Marleau did good for me... i love that guy, Hope he keeps it up and brings Stanley's cup to SJ. :)
     
  15. Yeah the battle of Alberta would have been nice. But that last Calgary game was friggin pathetic.

    I was a little suprised about this update. I didn't expect to be in second. After tonights games, I don't think that will last.

    I didn't see any of the Carolina game, but picking up Ray Whitney from Detroit was a steal. Columbus should have held on to him. He's a great sleeper pick in office pools.
