#2500495 % chance of making the playoffs

Posted by FireCaptain on 24 March 2014 - 05:33 PM

Woohoo! I did something right! Haha. We almost doubled our percentage chances!

Our chances moved from 35.2% to 68.9% since this thread was created. This thread must be good luck

#2499540 Dallas Eakins loses his cool...thanks to some water

Posted by FireCaptain on 23 March 2014 - 12:35 PM

By Canadian law, didn't they have to chant "cin-quante, cin-quante!" as well?              

 

By early in the third period, all the fans were waiting on was to find out who would win the 50/50 take of some $66,000.

 

“Fif-tee-fif-tee, fif-tee fifee!” the chant went up. Sure enough, when the winning number was drawn, later than normal, with just about four minutes remaining, the exodus was on.

#2499519 % chance of making the playoffs

Posted by FireCaptain on 23 March 2014 - 11:42 AM

All in all, a good day, the only one that hurt was the Sharks' loss.

 

I'll try and update this daily with the latest projections from Sports Club Stats.

 

http://www.sportsclu...ic/Detroit.html

 

Today's (3/22/14) chance: 53.6%.

 

What we need tonight (all %ages assume regulation win/loss) (red is status with undesired outcome):

 

Wings win         (MIN loss)  - +11.2%     (-10.1

Canadiens win  (MTL loss) - +3.0%     (-1.6

Sharks win       (WSH loss) - +1.2%     (-2.0

Rags win           (NJD loss) - +0.7%     (-0.2

Blues win            (PHI loss) - +0.7%     (-0.7

Dallas win         (OTT loss) - +0.1%     (-0.2

Jets win             (CAR loss) - +0.1%     (-0.1

 

 

If the stars align perfectly, that's a ~17 %age point swing to the good! The major must-win game, obviously, being ours.

Fast paced and tons of scoring. 

 

Glad the flightless birds got their wings clipped.

 

Whew!

Coming from an epic GDT creator this is high praise.

 

This GDT is pure gold. FlashyG, you win the Internets.

Carolina Hurricanes prospect Sergey Tolchinsky is, at least for the time being, playing in the Ontario Hockey League for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. We say "for the time being" because, well, did you see that shot?

 

 




#2493323 UFA/RFA Re-Signing, What Does Everyone Get?

Posted by FireCaptain on 08 March 2014 - 10:08 PM

I don't know where the first page of this thread gets the idea that Alfie is done after this season. If he doesn't retire (seems unlikely since he's playing well and apparently having fun), both he and DRW want to have him here next year.

#2491557 21 games to make it 23 years

Posted by FireCaptain on 06 March 2014 - 01:24 AM

Jarnkrok is outside of that realm, as he's: 1) not a roster player, 2) not a regular call up player and 3) moving ONE player is not selling the farm like Babcock was eluding to. 

Can someone point me to the quote where Holland says he's not going after a rental?  I'm sure it exists, but I'd just like to have reference to it.

 

Just as a sidenote:  Babcock was quoted today with wanting to not lose young talent from within the locker-room.  Specifically:  Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan, Jurco, Glendening, and DeKeyser.

 

Calle falls outside of that realm, I guess.
