Haha, in thinking about it more I suppose this method is kind of 'if you know 5 valid answers to this question, here's which one to go with'

You didn't ask which arena hosted. You asked for a city which hosted a draft. Minneapolis was a host city. Boom.

Will New York City be listed as a joint host city with Newark and references as such by the NHL? If so, yes. If not, no.

Or you can make it easier and say which teams have hosted the draft...or which arenas. Whatever.

But if you are asking which cities have served as a host for the draft, then Minneapolis definitely did. And the NHL freaking congratulated them for the job they did as CO-hosts with the city of St. Paul.

Re: Bettman Lockout III Thread (aka NHL Offseason: Now & Forever)

i've barely even been skimming this peehs nittery, but is MacroBlog really arguing what i think he is? wtf

and yes some of the questions could have been worded better, but i think most sane ppl here could gather the spirit of each one. and if not, you could have always PM'd him to clarify. otherwise, it's just like peehs man, get the [censored] over it...

Re: Bettman Lockout III Thread (aka NHL Offseason: Now & Forever)

Most sane people would assume that "Cup winning game" did not refer to "some game where one of the teams won the Cup."

Seriously, St. Paul and Minneapolis were both listed as host cities which is a super-duper easy one to grade.

He wants to grade both of those questions incorrectly. His contest. Fine by me.

Re: Bettman Lockout III Thread (aka NHL Offseason: Now & Forever)

I didn't spend more than 10-15 minutes myself, I put down CHARKS for every valid answer I could think of and answered Nicklas Lidstrom for like 3 diff questions.

And yeah, my method is good for bubbling/finishing respectably but you won't really win with it. You gotta stick your foot off the cliff on some answers to get the aces that nobody else will.

Re: Bettman Lockout III Thread (aka NHL Offseason: Now & Forever)

Q: Who has scored 3 goals in a losing game?

A: Alex Ovechkin. HIS team didn't lose when he did that...but ONE of the teams did. Therefore the answer is correct!

Bob,

the question was worded terribly, just as 'who has scored 3 goals in a losing game' would be an awful question. If he had said 'Name Russians who won the Stanley Cup while playing in the Cup-deciding game', problem solved.

EDIT: switch you did a great job running the peehs and didn't word any other questions ambiguously

Re: Bettman Lockout III Thread (aka NHL Offseason: Now & Forever)

ye thats the hardest part of running peehs, even when you think you have a question worded as you want to get the answers you want, people will find a correct angleshoot. But that is also part of the game when playing, to angleshoot the ambiguous questions.

but more importantly, who the hell cares?

Re: Bettman Lockout III Thread (aka NHL Offseason: Now & Forever)

well i honestly wasn't trying to angleshoot the question, i thought you wanted the names of russian players who played in cup deciding games. if i had thought it was an angleshoot i might've asked for clarification. and yeah, some of the wording of my peehs was lol because i foresaw angleshots and tried to head them off
