Hockey Playoff Pool


2008 Playoff Pool: Day Twelve

PuckI finally got around to uploading pics I snapped during our playoff pool draft while we waited for Joe. Here's the photoset if you're curious what a Gary or Drew looks like.

On the ice, the Preds and Ducks are out. I expected a heck of a lot more from the Ducks and drafted accordingly. It's rough when you're down to two players after the first round, but I remember a guy many years back who lost every single one of his players before round two began. As bad as you think you have it, there's always someone worse than you.

2008 Playoff Pool: Day Eleven

PuckFirst round picks in the draft should be high scorers from team you strongly believe will make it out of the first round. Crosby and Zetterberg went first overall. If you're going to win the pool, you're looking for at least a dozen points out of that guy. Heck, even if your #1 guy gets upset in the first round, you should still get 6 or so point out of him.

The Avalanche took out the Wild last night, and Gaborik got his first point of the series with an assist on Minnesota's only goal. Pops picked Gaborik with his first pick, and barely avoided a shutout. If you're wondering why the Wild aren't moving on, look no further than the disappearance of Marian Gaborik.

2008 Playoff Pool: Day Ten

PuckMy buddy (went to the same high school, never actually spoke) Brendan Shanahan is moving on as the Rangers knocked off the Devils in five. That hurts Steve who has three Devils, and it hurts me, but I'm just fighting to not finish last. Go Ducks go!

In the pool, Ryan is only two points back of Drew, who has led since day one. Drew banks on his high scoring Penguins, who haven't played in a bit thanks to the woeful Sens. That's helped five guys come within five points.

2008 Playoff Pool: Day Nine

PuckLet me do a little math.... If the Ducks and Devils go out in five, and the Red Wings dispose of the Predators, I'll be left with Smyth and Wolski from the Avs.

I stink. That is all.

2008 Playoff Pool: Day Eight

PuckI feel better this morning. There's a little more jump in my step, my breakfast tasted better, music is sounding better, everything is tinted with a shiny gold. Something is wonderfully different this morning... I wonder what it is?

We all know exactly what it is, and I'll be writing an entry about it shortly. I can't wipe this damn smile off my face!

2008 Playoff Pool: Day Seven

PuckThe Sens and Ducks won't be swept in the first round, because the Ducks managed to win a game last night in Dallas. I caught the end of a pretty exciting Bruins ~ Habs game, and realized how much I miss playoff hockey in this city. We're so damn deprived.

As for our pool, Drew continues to hold a healthy lead while Patino rides the Ribeiro rocket to second.

2008 Playoff Pool: Day Six

PuckMy, how the mighty have fallen. Us ABOers aren't going to have to sweat it out this spring. The Sens barely made the playoffs and now it appears they're bowing out in four straight in the first round. What a glorious time to be alive!

Go Pens Go!

2008 Playoff Pool: Day Five

PuckWhen I went to bed last night, the Sharks led the Flames 3-0. I couldn't believe my ears when the shower radio told me Calgary came back and won. Cujo does it again.

The committee met last night and we're going to strip Patino of his four Steve Avery points. Why? Because we don't like Avery or his antics. Sorry Patino, the committee has spoken.

2008 Playoff Pool: Day Four

PuckThis was to join our annual playoff pool, people! The three dudes holding down the top three positions right now, Drew, Mike C. and Patino, are our three newcomers.

At the beginning of the season, nobody could have predicted that both the Ducks and Sens would look so listless after two games. I think they'll both get swept, which blows away half of my selections. At least I'll still have Wojtek Wolski...

2008 Playoff Pool: Day Three

PuckDrew is riding the Penguin train to glory, racking up big time points from Malkin and Malone. He's 7 points up on Steve who has a well balanced attack with 9 of his 10 players getting points.

I have the opposite problem. My first 8 picks in the draft have yet to score a point for me. That's why I'm a whopping 17 points behind Drew after a mere three days.
