Foote sheeping and Brodeur aceing are both so great.

lolol I actually forgot I put Roy for the Avs question. I had Foote typed in, and then switched up last second. I was pissed when I saw the Foote picture.

I still hate this stupid game.

I scored you as incorrect - screwed up on marking it in the answers, but it's reflected in the scores. Will correct

Daneyko sheeping and nobody picking the Leafs (like T said) are ridiculous too.

Adam: any chance you can hold off? it's going to be a long lockout imo - give people 2 weeks to recover

Also I find it somewhat amusing/confusing that 3 people who've run peehs before are at the bottom of the standings

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Glad to see I am not the only one who is angry.

-Islanders and Blues are the most popular answers for question 1...
-I don't even know who Ken Daneyko is and he sheeps, yet Brodeur aces...
-The entire first line on the Kangz aces, yet 3 people take Doughty...
-Forsberg ace, Sakic 2, Foote.....SHEEP!

Henrik, what's up with not taking Bitz? Thought for sure the three of us would take him.

Alright, I am only 3 points off of the podium right now. Time to step it up.

Oh and Effen crushed that round...time for a random drug test!

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Okay, here's the questions. Answers due by Thursday afternoon, I'll do the reveal Thursday night or maybe Friday morning. I keep losing players along the way so I'm not going to give a tight deadline only to wait - get your questions in as quick as you can.

REMINDER AGAIN: Please, PLEASE post answers, ONE PER LINE, so it's like this:

Martin Brodeur
Stephane Yelle
LOL Rangers

ROUND 4: The Business Of Hockey

1. Name a player post-July 2005 to sign an offer sheet.

2. Name a player who has signed a NHL contract worth more than $60.01 million (excluding performance bonuses)

3. Name a player who was an amnesty buyout in August of 2005

4. Name an NHL team to declare bankruptcy post-January 1995.

5. Name a team to have played in a Winter Classic.

6. Name a head of the NHLPA.

7. Name a player suspended for 20 or more NHL games (from 1990 on)

tbh, i couldn't remember for sure which plug that it was who got suspended. i was like "Weise? no...Oreskovich? no...Volpatti? no...Mancari? no..."

then i had Asham, thought it might be too sheepy so tried to think of another one. went with Konopka, thinking it was him, not Carkner, that went after Boyle or whoever. ugh, so bad...

this whole thing is such a disaster, lol
