Welcome back JP! It's tough about the Wings, but I guess I've been spoiled. Maybe the Sens will be my team this year.

That sounds like a great fantasy draft! I had one last week with a bunch of old faces too. All of that snow is falling as cold rain where I'm at. I guess I can't complain.

As Larry mentioned I am going to be running Coach's Stanley Cup Playoff Pickem this year! Check it out here: http://ngsforums.com/forums/index.php?topic=24178.0 Spread the word!

Yep! This will be very similar to the contest I ran for a couple of years when we were on the Exodus site.

Good year in the NCAA tourney for me.  I won our office pool, MM's and was 4th in Tom's (but had the 2nd most correct picks).  grin1

Sorry about the Sens JP...but that was a fun game last night! They have another shot tonight at least against my Wings.

MM Sr. and I have tickets to the LAST GAME EVER at the Joe this Sunday...should be a memorable experience.

Congratulations to Rat on winning MM's Bracket Challenge! Did you get anything for winning your office pool?

Only 6 people got in at $5 a head so, better than a kick in the head.  grin1

Have fun at the Joe, maybe the winner of the frozen pond gets his pick of souvenirs.  haha1

I agree with Brian........grab a souvenir for sure........Last game at the Joe.....that's HISTORY.

It would be nice to take the seat you sit in........that would be a cool thing to have in your Man Cave......... ber

Good luck to you and your Dad in the Frozen Pond.

That was a great Hockey Game last night between the Sens and Wings.......UNREAL OT and 7 rounds of the Dreaded Shoot-Out.

Kudos RR for been Bracket winner............DAMN DAMN DAMN Tar Heels.

I gotta get something for sure! Just not sure if I want to foot MM Sr.'s dream bill. haha1

jp........I think the Sens just clinched.

They are almost there! Right now they haven't because of the tiebreaker. Ottawa, Toronto, Tampa Bay, and the New York Islanders all have three games remaining. Since a team can earn at most two points per game and the Senators are 6 points up on the Islanders and Bolts, the Sens would have to get zero points in their last three games, AND either the Islanders or Bolts would have to get all six points in their last three games, for it to come down to tiebreakers. If the Sens can get just one point over the next three games, they will clinch. Toronto is only one point behind the Sens so if the Sens get one more point and Toronto gets two more points then the playoff teams will be set.

Good afternoon folks.  Glad to see the count got back up.  I checked a couple of times and when I didn't see it, I figured it was toast.  Apparently not! 

While I didn't join your BB pool, did at work and won.  Small little stipend from that.  That said, I didn't watch much of it prepping for my fantasy baseball draft, which is now over and I am ready to go watch some games.

JP - Your message reminded me of a line from Forrest Gump:

"Sorry I messed up your Black Panther party."

Any idea how the NHL draft order works this year with the expansion team coming in?  In other words, what # pick with the Devils get?

Yeah we had a little vacation there but glad to be back at it! I thought the same thing for a few days. Congrats on winning your March Madness pool. What was the prize?

My understanding is the new Vegas team will be able to buy out contracts of players from other teams, other than 10 players from each team that can be protected by the ownership of that team. Then the draft itself will be similar to prior years, except there will just be an extra team there. I haven't read a whole ton about it though.


What a fantastic experience at the Joe last night. I will post some more pictures when I get a chance. 100% worth the sleep deprivation today at work.
