Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

I like this scoring system because it gives you more incentive to go for aces. There is not as big of a difference between sheeping an answer and getting it wrong.

ah damn it - i didn't know that either, haha. thanks for honesty, will correct.

a reminder to players: i'm amused by editorializing, but it makes it more difficult to score the game, so please don't do it.

mantis: yeah, good point, which to me is what it's all about. the trouble with scoring where a wrong answer is the total number of players in the game is that sheeping becomes a dominant strategy to a large degree.

I was thinking Sundin there, but I just wasn't sure he ever finished top 5. He always had consistently good seasons...blah I should have stuck with it.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Also, I really liked these questions Triumph. Each question had a good mix of sheep-y answers, with some risky longshots.

Plus, anytime Phillipe Bozon can be an answer, I support it.
