Hockey Playoff Pool


Playoff Pool: Day Fifteen

PuckI watched that wild Buffalo ~ Ottawa game last night. With goaltending like that, our playoff totals will go through the roof. I'm telling you, when the Sabres tied it up late and scored early in overtime, I was one happy pappy. The annual tradition is that the Maple Leafs defeat the Senators in the playoffs. In lieu of a Toronto berth, our QEW brothers will do nicely.

Go Sabres Go!

I'm putting my money on Marc. Alfredsson, Havlat and Elias could easily meet up in the semi finals. I am banking on Briere/Dumont and Heatly/Redden who meet each other in the quarter Finals. I am gaurenteed to lose two of them.

Good luck to everyone but it really does look like a two man race. I won my hockey pool this year, and I hope to win the playoff pool as well.... BUT I DOUBT IT!

Dude, you're my brother and all, so I'm rooting for ya, but the main reason I want you to win our 2006 NHL Playoff Pool Spectacular is so Marc doesn't. That guy has won twice in the past three seasons, including one come from behind win to push me into second. Enough is enough. Go Sabres Go!

i just wanted to say thank-you to everyone who helped me spend over four hours assembling the biggest bunch of losers since last years raptors, and also for taking my 20 dollars, appreciate it, i hope whoever wins gets hit by a bus on their way to the bank

For those who aren't following our 2006 NHL Playoff Pool Spectacular, Stefan banked on the Red Wings and Rangers and now sits in last place where he'll likely finish.

Thankfully, I'm not winning this thing so I don't have to fear the deadly curse he's put on the eventual winner. If the winner gets hit by a bus on his way to the bank, we know who to blame.

Playoff Pool: Day Thirteen

PuckMany are disappointed with Calgary's loss last night. Everyone wanted to see the battle of Alberta. Everyone, except me. I'm growing a little tired of Alberta. Who do they think they are? The centre of power in Canada has always been Ontario, but now Alberta has the money and the political power. No disrespect to Albertan visitors (Carter, Jomp, et al) but another battle of Alberta was more than I could stomach.

I feel better about banking on Dallas after watching the top four seeds fall in the West. When was the last time seeds 5-8 advanced? If I had to bet on a final, I'd bet on San Jose ~ New Jersey. If I had to bet on a winner in our pool, I'd take Ryan over Marc by a hair.

Playoff Pool: Day Twelve

PuckI'm glad the Habs lost. Sure they're Canadian, but I still hate 'em. So much success, it's so unfair. I'm also glad the Flyers are out. Bob Clarke's Flyers are hateful. The last time we had playoff hockey in Toronto, it was the Flyers who beat us in six in the second round. Then, there was that Lindros thing... the whole team is easy to dislike. Good riddance to bad garbage... and go Sabres go!

Playoff Pool: Day Eleven

PuckWhat's the deal with the Red Wings? This team won the President's Trophy as the regular season team with the most points yet they bowed out rather easily in the first round. It's a great line-up, with a nice mix of youth and veterans who have won in all before, but something was missing. With a 2-0 lead headed into the third, I had this one going seven. I was wrong.

Playoff Pool: Day Ten

PuckFour teams are out, the biggest hurt was felt by yours truly. When the Stars bowed out early and unexpectedly to the Avs, 40% of my team went with them. It's all over but the cryin'.

Playoff Pool: Day Nine

PuckEnzo lost three players yesterday when Tampa Bay bowed out, but he lives and dies by the play of the Calgary Flames. He has five Flames who have combined to give him 24 points and a share of the lead.

Playoff Pool: Day Eight

PuckThere's been a see-saw battle between Marc and Enzo all week. Meanwhile, Steve crept out of the basement on the back of Peter Forsberg. I watched a good chunk of that game last night and Forsberg is just an unbelievable playoff performer.

Playoff Pool: Day Seven

PuckIn 2004, Marc won this pool with 88 points. In 2003, Pops won with 91. This year, goals are being scored at a record pace and already Enzo has 40. It's the new NHL, folks.
