REVENGE!!!!!!!!!

Good game j0e. Wow your boys took it to me. Good luck going forward.

 

   My goaltending was destroyed this week, Bob got sick and missed two starts, the Wings inexplicably started Coreau twice and Howard once and Raanta missed the entire week. Then I made the bad decision to pick up Lindgren who got shelled over Korpisalo (I my defense Korpi had been rocked his last three starts) only to see Korpisalo with 2 nice wins.

 

  In the end it wouldn't have mattered, your team came out firing and you deserve serious props. Good luck the rest of the way.

Good match bud.

This marks the first time in History I have beaten you in an all stars playoffs(And first time I was underdog I think). After the beating you gave me the week before the playoffs, I was hoping the law of averages would come into play lol.

 

Good luck next round everyone!

And goalie play continues to kill me! :rage:  First I try to be smart and pick up/start Darling vs the sinking Rangers..especially against a rookie goalie. But NO ......  Darling has to give up 6 goals and the Rangers win 6-3.   Then we get to Anaheim....calling Mr. Gibson, calling Mr Mr. Gibson.  Will the real Mr. Gibson show up.  I try to be smart and pick up Miller and he loses 2-1 to the Stars and Gibson in his last 2 starts has gotten the loss while giving up 8 goals.

 

All I can do is scream!  I have a huge whole I now have to climb out of vs. @yave1964 ... gonna be a long week.

See, things like this are why people like you and me could NEVER invest in pay leagues...... we'd probably start to actually HATE hockey!  :ermm:

If that's true, you may have singlehandedly ended HF's season in NAHANA.

Well, going crazy with add drops now to try to bridge the gap on some of these categories. It might derp me for next round, but if I do not make it to next round, it does not matter.

 

No matter what I need some solid goalie performances. Surprisingly behind on Hits and Blocks, a category section I usually dominate.

 

Behind by 4 goals, 7 Assists, a staggering +20 for Rux vs my +1, 4 PIM's, 1 PPG, 1 PPA, tied in GWG and only 12 SOG behind, 14 hits and 5 blocks.

 

I have a large mangame advantage so i should be able to swing some of these categories my way. None of them are out of reach except +/- ! but adding a few Ogie Ogelthorpe style hit machines should help me with PIM's and hits at least.

I am in a dog fight with @yave1964.  Somehow, I have a slight advantage.  We both have the exact same man-games remaining.  I went nuts on my drops and adds at the beginning of the week.  This will come down to Sunday.

Yeah, this is far from over.  Even the +/- because I can go down while you go up (the Flyers/Jackets Story!).   

I've worked hard on the hits/blocks (largely because of learning from you and @yave1964) but my team is playing over their head there and I'm not sure yours is performing as usual there.   Everything else is close and can be overcome.   I wouldn't be shocked, even on Friday, if the final score was completely flipped, it's that close.

This is actually hilarious.

 

I picked up Pateryn for PIM's and hits and possibly some blocks. He immediately fights Borowecki who I also have. +10 PIM's

 

Tom Wilson on your team also got in a fight, so you got 5 and I only lead by 1 now, but still lol.

I'm a little late to catching up on this fantasy chat, as I'm still smoldering from the burn of not making the playoffs.     :crazysmile:

It's interesting how both leagues dropped the top teams last week.

All tied up, but a tie and you take it. I need to snatch and maintain some categories tonight!

 

What a coinflip. Tough match Rux as always :)

I wasn't blowing smoke. I had mangames early and you had them late. I didn't think I built up enough of a lead.  I don't feel good in either league.

So, we'll see how it plays out, but an unforced error at really the wrong time may end up costing me the season. 

 

So, I didn't realize until 4:02 (2 minutes too late to fix it!) what an add/drop yesterday did to my goalies today.  It put Fleury on the bench and Bishop and Hellboy in, who play each other. 

 

That would have guaranteed a win, which would have helped, but it also made a loss likely, which is deadly. 

 

So, I picked up Montoya at the last second.  I'm playing Bishop over Hellboy since I also have Benn in this league and Radulov in NAHANA, but otherwise would do it the reverse.  The thing is that I'm sure I reset yesterday, but apparently not. 

 

This will likely cost me especially since Fleury is pitching a shut out with a ton of saves.

      Hey, we don't stitch the names on the back of the jerseys. We throw some scotch tape on the back and use a colored marker to write in the names on it.

      Latest all Stars trade.   Sharknado trades Anderson and RNH  To FD for Elliott and Skinner   Overall giving FOW and a slight goalie downgrade for SOG and a more goal heavy player.   Had 5 C's so benching one would be regular and fits into my team focus of goals and SOG and saves everyone else from Elliott offers

      BTW fellow All Stars GMs....   @ruxpin , @pilldoc , @Bakanekimiwa , @J0e Th0rnton , @hf101 , @AJgoal , @FD19372   Just a friendly reminder that today is the All Stars trading deadline, so you if you still have an itchy trade finger (settle down, Rux, let me finish...), today is the day to get it all out of your system!

      There has been no collusion between my campaign and @AJgoal   My fingers being crossed is strictly a coincidence.
