wtf, I took a print screen of a thread, used the eye dropper tool to take the background color, made that the background color of the image, uploaded it, made thread, and BAM, it doesn't match. And there's a stupid border. Screw you Illustrator or Imageshack.

Actually, I said in the other thread. I'm not taking the Pens. I'm letting another Pens lover take them as I got to use them once already. But If I do get first pick....I will be picking......TIGER WOODS! Oh wait wrong draft pick. :P

Devils if possible. But things can change down the road.

Wait, I finished behind everyone but Nate and Gary. Why am I picking so late, even after Wpark? That's pretty stupid.

Regardless, I'm in.

If you have first pick...how can things change? lol..I'm confused. Don't feel bad for taking somebody elses team. All's fair in love and hickey!!!





yes I did ;)

I think I'd like the Flames this go round. I'd like to try flaming it up all season. Should be a good time for all.

This is just my 2 cents, but I see no reason to rule out teams. Surely, playing as a more highly rated team can help you out, but it's not the deciding factor in the outcome of a game. I'd probably play worse with a team other than the Kings... Their ratings are shit in this game, but almost every loss I suffered came by 1 goal, including both games I played against Wpark's Red Wings. It helps to be familiar with your personnel and be able to take advantage of your team's strengths.

I concur. I think that's kind of the whole point of allowing the suckier players (like myself) to have the top picks. If we're not allowed to pick from the best teams, what's the point? And in the same token, how Wpark played with the Red Wings is not indicative of how anybody else would play with them. If you want be down with Hossa, I say be down with Hossa.

Well, keep in mind that I should be grouped in the "sucky" category as well, since I only finished ahead of you and Vulcan (which is why I also questioned the draft order). But the main reason I'm replying- CHECK YOUR PM'S, NATE! :-P

I'm in! I'd take the Bruins if nobody else grabbed them ahead of me, but I'll be happy with whatever dregs are left by the time I'm picking. Then I'll at least have a convenient excuse for why I never score.

hey Moo, we should also divide 3 games a week by # of teams in the league and create a deadline date for all games to be finished right from the start. People should stay on track with that sort of thing.

Matt: My bad. I took the order straight from the list I saw on the league screen, and then added people from memory from the list. Forgot to bump you up

Destro: According to Mr. Hockey, Sean isn't. I'll come up with a concrete deadline once the number of teams is set.

Everyone: Don't forget, Captain Obvious is away for a week or so. We'll pick teams for now in the interest of time. But once he gets back, if he want's anyone's team that picked after him, he gets it. If it's any indication, he picked Edmonton last season. Mr. Hockey's Xbox is out of service, but since he is still in contact with CAG, he can still pick. If you don't get your xbox back in time for the league start, you'll get a free bye-week.

Feel free to start posting your picks. I'll edit, sort, etc. when I get back from work/school tonight.

I'm in. Though if it would seem fair to everyone, I won't mind taking the last pick of teams. I don't find it fair that I get to pick before the new guys do.

It's cool, Mooj... I was just wondering why I was picking so late.

Are Vulcan and Nate's picks official? If so, I pick the Kings, obviously.

This league will probably be easier too if everybody is on everybodys friends lists. That way you can see if some one is on line not just in nhl.


chunky is not playing as well?

your turn moo

ne1 not on my list please send me a friend request. xbox is down but As soon as I get it i'll approve it.


it would be kinda neat to have the east verus the west coasters. East can only pick east teams etc. Then do like a true playoff series. A west playoff and an east playoff then the winners meet in the cup. That would help cut back some games too. Only play your side.

This may be a little harder season to get games in. We have a lot of west coasters joining this season. Might mean some late/early games for some of us so we can get in with the other guys

I will add everyone today/tomorrow. I'm central time zone, so if we decide to do an east/west thing I can be like a wild card and go either way.

Huh, thought I replied to your post, but upon reading the thread, I guess I didn't. Go ahead and start posting your picks. If someone ahead of you posts the same team, well, you'll have to pick another. The OP is updated as of Mr. Hockey's pick.

And Wpark, it's your call if you want to stay in your spot or not. The way I see it, you get to be above the new people because you are a returning player (kinda like seniority I guess). But then again, if no one picks who you want, it doesn't really matter to begin with.
