Hockey Playoff Pool


Pool Update: Day Twenty Eight

Playoff PoolThen, there were four. With the usual suspects eliminated from the playoffs already, there aren't many selections remaining in our 2004 playoff pool. Alexi is banking on Tampa Bay, Ryan is banking on Philadelphia and Marc has a great assortment of scorers remaining including Martin St. Louis and Jerome Iginla. These three have the best chance at finishing first.

Pool Update: Day Twenty Seven

Playoff PoolIn the words of George Louis Costanza, "That's it for me!" With Detroit's elimination I lost three major players in our 2004 playoff pool and any chance to finishing in the money. What else is new?

Marc secured the only point of the night when Jerome Iginla assisted on the lone goal for Calgary. He's currently in third place, three points behind Ryan for second. Alexi continues to lead the pack.

Pool Update: Day Twenty Six

Playoff PoolI've been trying to get this sour taste out of my mouth since late yesterday afternoon. It's sickening. I've tried everything, but I can't quite shake it.

Enough whining, I have a 2004 playoff pool update to get to. 100 NHL players were drafted by the ten of us, but nobody selected Keith Primeau, probably because of injury concerns at the time. As a result, Pops was the big winner as Simon Gagne picked up a three spot. The big day moves Pops into a tie for ninth as he tries to avoid the distinction of being the first person to go from first to worst in our annual pool.

Message for Pops: Dude, I know you dig the blues, and last we spoke you weren't interested in much from my music collection because I was lacking in that genre. Do yourself a favour and take another peek. I've added several albums you might dig and if you want anything drop me a line or tell Marc to fetch the MP3s.

Pool Update: Day Twenty Five

Playoff PoolTwo playoff games and only four goals. That's playoff hockey. Joe Sakic's two goals extends Alexi's lead to six in our 2004 playoff pool but his Steve Yzerman left the Detroit game after taking a puck directly in the face. Stevie Y has been the heart and soul of the Red Wings for twenty years and whether you're a Red Wings fan or not you hope the guy is okay. Ya gotta respect #19.

Pool Update: Day Twenty Four

Playoff PoolThe only game last night was the only game that matters. The Leafs big win gave myself and Stefan the biggest bump in our 2004 playoff pool with two points a piece from Gary Roberts and Mats Sundin.

I'm currently 14 points out of first and 10 points out of second, but if my Detroit trifecta ever get their act in gear, I could make a run at the money. Stranger things have happened.

Pool Update: Day Twenty Three

Playoff PoolAu revoir Canadiens. Montreal has been swept in four and Joe suffers as he loses two of his players in our 2004 playoff pool including his high scorer, Alexi Kovalev. Alexi Chabane appears to be clicking along nicely as he picked up another four points last night to increase his lead over Ryan to four. Alexi has a couple of Colorado players though, so his lead may be short lived.

Pool Update: Day Twenty Two

Playoff PoolWhen Joe Sakic scored in overtime last night to extend the Av's season, he also bumped Alexi back into the lead in our 2004 playoff pool. Joe C. has been quietly creeping up the standings and his three points last night have him only ten behind the leader. Joe C., you may recall, finished second last year.

Pool Update: Day Twenty One

Playoff PoolMy entire life I have been taught to hate the Montreal Canadiens. As a devout Maple Leaf fan, I had little choice in the matter. In my life time alone they have won six Stanley Cups and have been spoiled with 24 overall. I hate them.

Having said that, I actually felt bad for them last night. That was truly a heart breaking loss for the Habs and they're now done like dinner. Only Pops, Joe and Anthony drafted a Montreal player in our 2004 playoff pool, so their elimination doesn't have much of an impact in the standings. Should Colorado be ousted in four Steve and Stefan will certainly be devestated and Alexi's slim lead will be threatened.

Pool Update: Day Twenty

Playoff PoolOnly one goal was scored in the NHL last night and only one person in our 2004 playoff pool registered a point. Joe's Patrick Marleau is turning out to the be the pick of the draft as he secured his tenth point of the playoffs thus far. With San Jose's overwhelming lead over Colorado, it looks like Marleau is going to have an opportunity to score many more.

Pool Update: Day Nineteen

Playoff PoolFor the first time in quite a while, Ryan is not alone at the top of our 2004 playoff pool. He's now tied with Alexi who got another two points from his productive Tampa Bay tandem. My Vincent Lacavalier slept through the first round but now has five points in his last two games.
