Hal is atop the leader board with a commanding 18 point lead over last place frazyfoshazy. his girlfriend kyla is in second place, so if they can stay atop the leaderboard as a couple we will have to buy them both Denny's. It will be the same method that gary bettman uses when he hands the conn smyth trophy to both the sedin sisters.
Me and hosh are both about tied right now with sean. but me and sean will be the only ones gaining points because most hosh's players are done for the playoffs. sean has the smart pick up of staal which gained him a few points on hosh and i tonight. my picks that i hope to do well are avery, iginla, thorton, neidermyer. everyone has green and ovechkin, i just gotta hope that boyle gets held off the score sheet, and i don't care if nabakov gets the wins because neidermyer and thorton will always trump that fact. although i really would like to see anaheim win that way the canucks dont have to play detroit next round. ur going down hosh!
Because i am pretty confident that i will win the pool this year, i am willing to tell you who i amthinking about picking for the next round. Watching Ray Whitney play today for the carolina hurricanes, he looked like a good pickup gettin 4 points mainly off assists to staal. i really want to take someone off chicago for the next round. sharp looks good but it would be tough to pick him over taves, havlat or kane. but cam barker on defense has been scoring like an offenseman with 3 goals so far in this series. cam was a superstar in the whl for the red deer rebels, but he has never performed amazing until this years playoff series. he could be this years rj umbeger or johna franzen. speak of johan franzen, it seems like he will be repeating again this next round, im going to be taking him for sure. thats just a teaser of some of the picks i am thinking of making. for the rest you will have to wait till the start of the second round, because ive got some top secret picks that i dont want anyone to know.
This year we are pleased to have the duo of the 2manadvantage competing against us in the pool. currently they are near the bottom of the pool, however they've got more players with games left than anyone else. watch them to make up some ground in the last few days before the first round ends. they were the only ones in the pool to successfully branch away from the malkin-crosby-ovechkin trio. they got savard and parize who have combined for 11 points. we're glad to have these guys in the pool, although we can't guarantee they will ever recieve the grand prize of a denny's grans slam breakfast if they win. its not because these guys live out east, its just because we're always too lazy to pay the winner.
good luck in the next round
