Yup, I was up 5 in +/- this morning, now I'm down 9...

See you here in 15 minutes after Fatarse's imminent shutout as he wastes away on my bench.

Thanks for the jinx. I hope Malkin never comes back.

Me too, I want my top 2 picks back.

And hope you enjoyed that SHO, can't believe you started him.

Have you been paying attention to the Devil's last 6 games? They are playing much better now. And a Pits team with no Crosby, Malkin? No brainer....

Yeah, I know, I actually wanted to start him tonight, but went for the auto win with Rolo/Pavs, which is working out pretty nicely, though a SHO would have been nice.

My team is fucking annoying, I spent most of the season with my offense carrying my team, then just as my goalie stats all improve dramatically my offense ceases and now it's the opposite problem. Semin coming back better ignite a fire or I'm suspending them all and I ain't letting them ever play in the NHL ever again

holy shit...why the Fuck does queenville continue to play Turdco? the guy fucking sucks balls....he flops around in the net like a fucking slippery Northern Pike from an inland lake in Northwestern Ontario...

the funny thing is that the Pike may actually stop a puck with its involuntary convulsions unlike TURDCO, the vulcanized rubber puck will simply deflect off turdcos slippery northern pike slime and go into the back of the net.....

back to quenville...stop fucking around man, turdco=huet...crawford = niemi...glue Turdcos ass to the bench with crazy glue and only let him up if he gets a call to go in the NHL hall of fame....LOL:lol::evilgrin::eek:

FUCK coach Q...wake up and shave your mustache!!!!! and leave Turdco in dallas where he belongs

Benched Ward.
Kunitz on IR.

The Kunitz thing couldn't be helped. I planned to drop Grabner on Saturday to activate Kunitz for Sunday, getting the most possible games out of that slot this week. So that's just strategy that backfired.

The Ward one bugs me because had I been paying attention and realized that the Canes were playing Buffalo, I would have gone for the 'sure win' and started both Miller and Ward, as opposed to Miller and Niemi like I did. Niemi got the win, but losing the shutout is gonna be big.

cocksucking motherfucker! Halak not starting today might end my playoff hopes. I missed inserting Rask into the lineup today by 3 minutes but figured Halak would play so I'd hit my minimums, but no, St. Louis goes and benches Jaro. The only FA with the possibility of playing tomorrow is Boucher so I grabbed him. He better fucking play too, or Thomas better get lit up & Rask gets put in. I better not lose the playoffs because of this.

Can someone explain to me why stat corrections has a SOG coming to Evander Kane for a game on the 19th? Atlanta's first game this week was on the 24th, so clearly that SOG is from last week. If that ends up costing me my matchup I will be so pissed.

BOB getting the start over Boucher really screwed me in a playoff matchup, already trailing and already having Roli not get the start, that one stung. Oh and Price and the Habs stunk it up....sigh....

it was like that last year, it's not new. I happen to like it. If you have a better winning percentage against that team during the regular season then you win your playoff match-up that you tied. going by most goals wins stinks IMO. it's just one stat, and if a lower placed seed wins because of that is really crappy.

Personally, I think using statistics from outside the week being played is dumb.

I like it. If you are tied in the playoffs, why should one of those stats break a tie? Goals are important but in h2h it's just a stat. same thing for wins for goalies, just a stat for H2H. If you tie a team in the playoffs and you beat them twice in the reg. season and you lose because the other opponent had more goals in the stats, to me it's just a kick in the teeth.
I like that if you beat a team more in the reg. season, that can break a tie. After all, we use those stats to see who gets into the playoffs. To each their own I suppose, but I do wonder if there are other alternatives to breaking a tie which could make everyone happier.

Because at least goals is a direct stat from the matchup for the week. Thats like saying the #1 seed in the NHL playoffs should beat the #8 seed if the game goes into OT or something. A playoff matchup is exactly that - a matchup - and the tie breaker should be decided from something having to do with that matchup.

I disagree. The team with the better H2H record over the entire season indicates who is a better team of the two. Using one category in one week as a tie breaker has a larger luck factor.

But that's kind of what H2H is about. Otherwise, everyone would just play Roto. Or there would be no playoffs and the regular season H2H standings would just be how the champions are decided. Besides, fantasy hockey teams are extremely dynamic and using a couple of weeks from far prior in the season are not likely to be a great reflection of the teams that week.

if we tied 5-5 and you won the goals category, why should you win that match-up because you had more goals? what if I had more GWG's or goalie wins, it stinks and what they have in place is fine by me. I don't like your analogy of comparing real nhl hockey to fantasy, it's not the same at all.
Using the regular season match-ups between those two teams to break the tie is a fair way of doing it.

Getzlaf 4 A, Iginla 3G 1A, Ovechkin 1G 2A, Tanguay 1G 2A, Keith 2A, Selanne 1G 1A, Stillman 1A, McDonald 1A, D'Agostini 1A

For a total of 21 points (10ppp) on a Wednesday! And to make things worse I benched Ward vs DET and he got the shutout...

Not sure I've ever bitched on this thread before but here goes... last night the Stars are losing to the Wild and pull their goalie. My opponent has Morrow who is on the ice. Morrow goes off, Benn comes on. I have Benn. Wild score in the empty net. Benn's -1 loses me the title. Seriously? It was like watching a train wreck in slow motion for fuck's sake.
