NN Hockey Pool Update: March 12th Edition

Jonathan Willis
March 12 2012 11:19PM

Once again, it’s been a bit since we’ve taken a look at the Nation Network standings. For the vast majority of those 40 days, it’s been my fault for putting it off. Yesterday, it was the fault of the good folks at Oilers Nation for writing so many things.

The original entries and rules are here. Scoring is as laid out in the original post, with one exception: goaltenders grades are adjusted to reflect the length of the season (since unlike skaters, who are graded on cumulative things like goals and points, goalies are judged primarily on their average save percentage).

Movers And Shakers

The following entrants have all jumped by more than 100 places since we last checked in.  And hey, look, my band of loveable losers (Bryzgalov!) is making a late-season push to be mediocre!  Also, if you're wondering what the worst lead in hockey is, it's the 1275.75-to-1275.65 lead I have on Jason Gregor.

Dude.. Is that bad?
Now you have me a little worried.

I'm thinking it wasn't so good drafting Markov and Crosby...

Dammit Willis.. I want a re-draft!!!

@Vintage Flame

I'm pretty sure I had ovechkin, markov and luongo.

like the mechanic/plumber guy from the simpsons would say, "that's your problem right there".

it'll take a hell of an effort, but I think I can make it to last.

What's this? My rank improving? Well I never! Also lol @ everyone who took Markov. That's like taking DiPietro as a goalie.

Wow! I started out the bottom quartile and have made it up to the top 20!! I had written myself off. Must have been all that good advice Jonathan's fantasy guide that finally payed off for Jonathan himself ;)

@Jonathan: Speaking of which, are you going to do another fantasy guide this year? I have a favour to ask: can you include an excel document with your predicted points, etc. per player? This would save me some crucial time--a deciding factor for participating in my fantasy league this year. This year I'm 2nd/11 with only 7 points behind the leader--thanks for the great guide!

Actually I thought the sales were pretty good for a first offering.

What Jon means is they weren't good enough to singlehandedly pour 10 million hours into another thing this summer that can only really be sold for about a month or so.

Damn...5 out of the top 50, and 3 off of moving more than 100 spots.

At least I'm headed in the right direction.
