I'll do the reveal tomorrow, so the next set of questions will come after that. I feel like I should've cut off the answering period to midnight tonight, but so it goes.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

yeah fair enough, just kinda think if it takes you longer than like 15 minutes to answer you're probably doing it wrong. think i usually take about 1 minute/question, but that might be rushing a little considering i never do all that well.

damn the Olympic thread is busy. i posted something in there Friday night, and there have been ~3k posts since then, yikes!

a) I agree that you should take about a minute per question.
b) i opened the Olympic thread yesterday and figured I'd catch up on the thread. I finished whatever page I was on and then saw there were about 5 new pages (100 ppp obv). I lol'd and checked out.

Isn't that the best part of peehs? The instant you send that message you think of way better answers to each question and wonder if the ones you chose were even right in the first place.

That said, feeling very confident about my answers this round.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

My answer for #2 better be an Ace. Kinda funny that I was just researching this player for unrelated reasons about a week ago, and it's a perfect answer.

I had to cheat to get the spelling for two answers, but I don't think spelling matters anways?

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

I wouldn't have had answer for #2 until a couple of weeks ago. Amazing how seldom I think about nationality.

So Tobias Enstrom [Sweden] gets 5.75 per and it doesn't register a blip? I think it's ok. He makes Buff effective and it keeps him at what will probably be the low part of the high-end for ages 27-33.

I've never been involved in a more exciting game in my life.
Been there, won that.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Won the 'Shoe eh, that's sick.

First time I've had a chance to get online here, it's past 10 am UK time. The weather here is literally ridiculous...it rains for 10 minutes, then it's blistering hot, then it gets cold, windy, then it pours, stops raining, sun again, then clouds...it's like Alberta in a fifth of the time.

Gonna try to get in Peehs answers for this next round if I can.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Okay, to make it more fun and easier for me, I've decided to score this with the Sheep Score 2012 Beta program. This doesn't allow me to score Incorrects like how I would want - merely half the number of players in the game. It marks Incorrect answers as: "1.5 times the highest correct score (rounded up). So if the highest correct score was 7, incorrects would receive 11."
