Post your pool team... 20 teams in our draft, snake format, I picked 4th overall so here are my picks.
Overall Pick # / Player
4. Daniel Sedin (obvious pick)
37. Claude Giroux (pretty happy to get him this late)
44. Alex Semin (sniped by the guy in front of me, wanted Heater but Semin is fine)
77. David Backes
84. Andrew Ladd (someone has to score for the Jets and now I have a reason to cheer for them)
117. Devin Setoguchi (since I got sniped on Heatley this is the consolation)
124. T.J. Oshie (have a good feeling, breakout time)
157. Tomas Fleischmann (expect him to get good minutes / pp time after signing for so much $)
164. Tim Connnolly (held my nose, risk/reward based on injury and hey look he's already out of commission)
197. Magnus Paajarvi (only need 40 points, but he has a strong upside)

Shut up, moron. You're just another pretender who has never played a second of hockey that calls those who have pussies because they don't like seeing guys get decapitated at center ice. Stevens was one of the worst in history and his greatest 'hits' were some of the most vicious headshots the game has ever seen. Others in this thread obviously agree, and I'm pretty sure they actually HAVE played the game, not just watched it in their mom's basement in Surrey.

PS: Your fantasy picks suck.

I had two live drafts with 12 teams each... I think I made out pretty well.

Doing a pool on saturday with an interesting format. There's no draft but instead players are auctioned off. Everyone has a budget of $100 and we each take turns picking a player to be auctioned.

I won last year...Expecting to repeat. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Hextall was an absolute legend. I like when goaltenders have vicious tempers.

Hahaha man, you get worked up easy. Oooooh... "shut up, moron". You even suck at trash talk. Wondering if you have any use in the world besides whining. Postal employee?

I used to play hockey, haven't played anything besides pickup in years, but you're just a tool. I mean look at you bitching and moaning through two seasons of hockey threads about any and every hit. Suspend everyone! Suspend everyone! Typical French Canadian hockey fan, can't back his shit up, willing to bet you're a turtler.

And if people agree with you that Stevens is anything but a hall of famer they can get bent. Different eras, different standards.

Just another example of why personal portraits on goalie masks suck. David Arrigo's art style is crappy too. It sucks to say because I like the tribute. I just don't think David Arrigo is a good mask painter.

I like art styles like this: http://dielairbrush.ca/

He's one of the few guys that can do a real human portrait and not have it look like garbage.

Didn't even read your reply.

I'm a Habs fan, but part of me is hoping they lose today. 

post #146 of 1719
I never hope the Habs will lose but I could have lived with it today. Great fan turnout in Winnipeg and amazing energy the entire game. Montreal played well though and they should get credit for going into an electric building and winning big. They won't get any, of course.

since the jets played like a houseleague team im not sure anyone outside of price deserves props. the jets were their own worst enemy out there; their pp was abysmal and every habs goal came from a jets fail or phantom penalty (buff on gionta). the atmosphere was great at times but the jets showed why the thrashers shat the bed so hard last season - to say they were anything but mediocre is ignorant. cammy killed the crowd 3 minutes in either way.

that being said it was nice to see them at least get one goal, but for a home opener it was pretty weak.
post #148 of 1719
The Jets have several problems. They don't have a goalie, which wasn't terribly evident in that game since none of those goals were his fault. They have a great young D corps who seem frustratingly hell-bent on not playing D. They have great forward depth, except for the fact that they have no top line forwards - literally no one on that team is worthy of being a top 3 guy. I'm still pulling for them, though.
post #149 of 1719
The Jets are probably a year away from making the playoffs and 2-3 years away from icing a good team. Their goalie situation is still iffy, the don't really have top line scoring (but do have a number of good offensive players) and their defensemen are still too wet behind the ears/undisciplined. I hope they make it this year because it would be great for Winnipeg and its fans, but I wouldn't bank on it.
post #150 of 1719
like i said before the jets pp was anemic and that one pp goal the habs got was from a gift of a phantom call. its your cynical homerism thats all wink.gif. i hope cammy isnt hurt too bad and spacek gets back; dont think you guys need any more blueline injuries.

still cant believe flames let cammy walk...
