Hockey Playoff Pool


Playoff Pool: Day Thirty-Eight

PuckThe Canes came back and have Buffalo on the brink. I'm not surprised to see them secure another "W". Have you looked at their roster? Seven players with a surname beginning with "W" played for Carolina last night: Niclas Wallin, Aaron Ward, Cam Ward, Doug Weight, Glen Wesley, Ray Whitney and Justin Williams. That has to be some sort of record.

Playoff Pool: Day Thirty-Seven

PuckAt the wedding yesterday, Jomp made a bold prediction that the Edmonton series is going seven. He's currently working in Fort McMurray, Alberta, so this prediction meant something. I immediately told him he was nuts but he was adamant.

Jomp was wrong and the Oil are in the finals. With Scott Niedermayer's departure, I'm out of players and will finish in tenth. Considering I drafted eleventh, I'm quite pleased with this advancement.

Playoff Pool: Day Thirty-Six

PuckGerber shuts out the Sabres and lets Marc reclaim the lead. That's two goalies winning big games the past couple of nights despite not having played in a month. Rust never sleeps.

PuckRyan picked up a whopping five points last night and now only trails Marc by two. We're talking some major scratch here. You can cut the intensity with a knife.

Playoff Pool: Day Thirty-Three

PuckEdmonton was lucky to make the playoffs. After squeaking in, nobody gave them a chance against the Red Wings. Then, nobody gave them much of a chance against the Sharks. Now they're just one win away from the cup final and the bandwagon is filling up fast. Go Oilers Go!

Playoff Pool: Day Thirty-Two

PuckIn any draft, somebody has to go first. In our pool, we each pull numbers out of a hat. If you end up picking last, as I did, that's just the way it goes. I like to think drafting first isn't that bit of an advantage, but crunching the numbers thus far suggests otherwise.

The current top four in the pool were also the first four to draft. I'm not using that as an excuse because I drafted last. Draw your own conclusions.

Playoff Pool: Day Thirty-One

PuckLooking back on that fateful day we drafted our players, nobody wanted to touch the Oilers. Steve was first to dive in, making his ninth pick of ten Ryan Smyth. Three others followed with their final selection, but that was it. Only four Oilers were drafted by four different poolies. We sure know how to pick 'em!

Playoff Pool: Day Thirty

PuckRyan still trails Marc by nine points. Marc has two Hurricanes while Ryan a couple of high scoring Sabres, a high scoring Oiler and a low scoring Hurricane. This is gonna be close!

Playoff Pool: Day Twenty-Nine

PuckAt this point in the season, so much is about momentum. Edmonton rolled right into round three and took game on from the Ducks who had quite a bit of time off. I really like the Oil in this series. Yes, I now call them the Oil. Oilers is so 80s!
