Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Damn, got lucky on the buyout and the Sabres. Thought that might be the trap everyone first level guesses.

Edit: heh, still finished bottom half. GOCBs too good. Well played, gents.

i don't have a problem with this question, but i looked it up afterwards and as a point of order, all the amnesty buyouts were during the week-long buyout period in July 2005.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

actually it is a problem with peehs questions when you come up with a great trivia question, but it won't really work as a peehs question, like the amnesty buyout thing - this would've resulted in a bunch of wrong answers and a lot of aces/2s.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Doesn't matter but I think Cooke should be correct as he's missed over 20 games due to suspensions. Question doesn't specify that it be a single incident.

So noone puts yashin for the over 60M contract, and then everyone puts him as a wrong answer for a buyout in a specific year. Lol.

That round was brutal. Lots of sheep answers and a few wrong. 1 ace though!

Thanks for running.

I didn't play because I was on a golf trip for the first few but soon realized I would have finished last anyway.
