It's back up and I've made my picks :)

it was crashing for me during the same time period you were having difficulties. Fingers crossed that it's a reliable site. Other then that I had also noticed a few minor glitches when the site was loading the past few days.

I'm not for the ranking option either, I would like to see the x2 game included somehow.

update: it's crashing again for me at 6pm, tried two different browsers ;-(

This time I noticed it too, but now the site is working again. It seems like the thing to do is to pick early to be sure that you have at least something done and then later edit the picks if you feel like it.

There's still 40 minutes to pick the first three games.

My bad. I was thinking that tonight's games were included. It's already Friday here in Finland so I got confused. "Weekend" picks you know. I forgot that it's still Thursday over there.

Too late for the first two games but made the rest of the picks now. This website seems pretty good, as for the confidence system I wouldn't mind it but I can imagine some would as it makes picking take a fair bit more time if you're serious about it.

Nicely done! Thanks for doing this.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Well, I meant to sign up from work yesterday, but apparently the work 'net filters block the picks site as a gambling site. Oh well, at least I'm in for the Saturday and Sunday games-- I guess this can be one of my drop-the-low-score weeks.

I'm in and I think I'll try to make sure I participate every week this season. Last year I got a little sidetracked near the end there.
