Nation Network Hockey Pool: November 6th Edition

Jonathan Willis
November 06 2011 06:09PM

After the jump, this week’s Nation Network Hockey Pool standings.

The contest rules and original entries are here. Scoring is as laid out in the original post, with one exception: because goaltenders are graded primarily on save percentage, some have run up enormous totals in the early going, so I have divided their totals by six (we’re one-sixth through the season, league-wide) to prevent them from crazily skewing the contest. As the season continues, these updates will feature goaltender totals divided by a lesser amount.

Did you address the RNH with and without the hyphen?

I am looking for excuses as to why I suck so bad - I picked relativly safe bets and I am like 400th...

Edit - Ok, now I see, I screwed up the form and picked two players from one column, I also failed to see that +/- was worth points and didn't factor that in....Man, I must have been drunk.

Something is all screwy, because I picked THE BEST PLAYERS!! and I'm barely ahead of you. I also didn't read the part about the +/-

and I'm drunk right now.....

so....

....here we are.

I don't think I screwed up and I still suck. Crosby should give me a boost when he gets back.

How about a link to the team the person drafted by clicking on thier name to see how many points each player has.

I cant remember who I drafted...

Nevermind I found the list, sorta.

Did you address the RNH with and without the hyphen?

I am looking for excuses as to why I suck so bad - I picked relativly safe bets and I am like 400th...

Edit - Ok, now I see, I screwed up the form and picked two players from one column, I also failed to see that +/- was worth points and didn't factor that in....Man, I must have been drunk.

No I am part of the nation and no not new, and no not Brownlee in disguise, although that would be pretty cool, just think it's stupid to be amused by something so simple like that word but then again simple things do amuse simple minds.

I'll going to trade my milk carton for free if RNH wins rookie of the year, and I didn't pick him. Whats that? He come back with a broken shot gun, I'll take that.

I have divided myself by six so as not to arouse the ire of the local villagers. Wait, there's a hockey pool?

@Willis

Can you create a link somewhere in these posts to their previous iterations? It would be nice to be able to track progress (or regress for that matter) without going through the whole site to find the last update.

Thanks again for updating. Here's hoping Crosby scores the 100+ points needed to put me on top!!

As opposed to the discovery of a semiconductor that allows quantum computing at room temperature that amuses your great cranium? Let's all just have some fun and talk about our beloved Oilers, how much we hate the Canucks, and how poorly I'm doing in this pool.

EDIT: The article and the discovery is actually really interesting, and has a pretty funny final line.
