Thanks! I think you're right, but I'll wait for the official count to come in before I plan my parade. :hehe:

Haha, sweet. A lot of big scores this weekend, but it's nice to win the final week. That's 21/26 games picked correctly, too; my x2 game was wrong.

More importantly, huge congrats to hooon. What a finish, what a win.

Lastly, and most importantly, a big, big thank you to kook for putting this together and sticking with it through the whole season. Besides Dan Bylsma, I'm not sure what roles anyone else played, but thanks to anyone else involved. Can't wait until next season; It's always a blast.

Good year, gang. Congrats to the champ and thanks again to Kook, Dan Byalsma and Motown.

Personally, I'm proud of my 25th place. I ended the season on a pretty high note with three weeks of good picking.

WTF, I got second place this week?!?! Sweet!!! That's like a miracle for me! Overall, I'm pretty happy with what I got, considering I missed a ton of weekends. When I decided to pick back up, I had 10 or 11 points, and now I have 116, so yay!

Congrats, hooon! That is a sweet belt! Thanks to everybody who put this together - this was my first year, and I had a lot of fun! I'll definitely be back for the playoffs and next season!

Gee, some monster scores this week! And here I was thinking my 15 was a good score, turns out it’s on the lower end of the scale! I went for a few risks such as Chicago the double up today as I figured we’d lose AND no one would’ve gone against Detroit. Glad to get that one wrong though! :P I really slipped down the standings over the past few weeks, I was inside the top 10 for most of the season and I dropped down to 17th! Not good!

Huge thankyou to kook, I know how much time and effort this game takes, so thankyou for all your hard work throughout the season. :) And thanks to DB, who again chipped in, plus anyone else who helped out over the course of the season. The results always got posted in quick fashion and the neatly formatted standings were a great addition.

And lastly, congrats hoon, you were so consistent all season, thoroughly deserved win! :siren: :clap: Look at your final three weeks, 16, 16, 18, massive finish!

thanks Aussie_Wing,talking about slipping down,I caught the same bug that you did and at the same time.I noticed during the season you and I had similar methods in making our picks.I think after what happened the past 4 weeks I'm going to have to change that formula slightly.I've been stubborn to make changes in the past.
It's been a strange couple of weeks,I started out 11/12 this week and still hadn't gotten to my x2 pick yet and finished almost in last place lol

Hey guys - I had a couple ideas for tweaks next season - lemme know what you think. I thought maybe we could, in addition to picking your own double game, have a featured matchup every week (maybe the early HNIC game or something) that is also worth double, and also make Wings games double (forcing us to not just blindly every week). Maybe we could have separate awards for overall points, straight points, bonus picks too. This year we started with 87 players and ended with like 35. I figure the more bonus points are in the competition, the more we can keep players from being out of the running by the all star break.

works every time

I'm not going overboard when I say that over the past 10 weeks, I don't think I'd have a 20% strike rate on my x2 game. It's cost me big time, it's an easy way to get an extra point, and I virtually threw it away every week.
