    You're a talented man my friend, and perhaps you could be a rarity: a pundit or analyst on TV with scrupples and integrity, and talent with the spoken and written word to back it up, not to mention a hockey IQ that is off the charts.

    Rarity? Are there any others? I'd suggest unique.

    The amazing thing is that the writeups seem to be getting better too - kudos!

    Add: have you considered a periodic blog? This forum has the capacity to link to one still I think (mods, correct me if I'm wrong). We used to have a daily one, but real life got in the way... :KJK:

    Thanks...I'd be up for a blog :D

    Root for the Canes to beat the Panthers :D Seriously though if we're talking reality then best shot at the Habs being knocked out is if the Panthers win so I'll be happy either way I guess? scratch

    Might be less complicated--and easier on your stomach/liver--just to root for the Sens and let the chips fall where they may... Wink

    Cheer for the Sens first; and against whoever is closest to 8th without going over in games not involving Sens. Right now that would be cheering for Carolina (since they are past 8th, making Florida closer).

    Canes just beat the Panthers in OT...so the Tabbies and Habbies are tied (barely) for the last spot.

    Montreal is ahead on wins.

    Dang, we really needed Carolina to win in regulation. Damn you J-Bo! (shakes fist)

    Actually it was Stillman who tied it. Damn you Cory! (shakes fist) Not Clouston, though.

    Did I ever tell you I hate, Hate, HATE loser points? Why not just go whole hog and give 3 points for a regulation win, 2 for an OT/SO win. Then the loser point at least doesn't dick around with standings as much.

    Even better would be to give 2 points for a regulation *or* OT win, but if it goes to a shootout give both teams a single point. Let the goalie get the W but the team gets a tie.

    Or go back to wins, losses and ties...same diff IMHO.

    The difference is we keep the shootout. They keep telling me that shootouts are exciting. I don't really find them all that exciting, but ok, fine, keep 'em. Give out the GWG and the W for the winning goalie -- those are individual stats, which is appropriate for what the shootout is. But if two teams played through 65 minutes without deciding a winner, then give them both a single point.
