    If you guys didn't get the welcome e-mail from onlinepools.com then:

    Pool Login: 87216
    Pool Password: gmpool

    And you can see everyone's roster (I believe). Although there are 2 more coming that I have saved on Excel at home.

    How does your team project!?

    Post by Aetherial on Tue Oct 07, 2008 2:00 pm

    No surprises here as wprager and I had access to the picking sheet with projections. That definitely affected our choices. Walter was even more agressive "maximizing" his team by projection...

    Here are the team totals according to the forecasters...

    wprager 1080.6
    Aetherial 1057.6
    504Heater 1044.7
    Monkhouse 1034.4
    PKC 1031.4
    dennycrane 1027.0
    Jordo 1026.2
    nprovan 1020.0
    Rooneypoo 1016.9
    BigRig 1004.4
    Jamvan 994.0
    Cronenbergfan 993.8
    Phoenix 982.8
    Acrobat 974.7
    MurderOnIce 973.3
    Beedub 972.2
    Blazer_2458 970.9

    Most Chosen Players...

    Post by Aetherial on Tue Oct 07, 2008 2:03 pm

    Here are the players most picked (not including the 2 rosters yet to be submitted today)

    Ovechkin, Kuba (10) (too many people watching this weekend)
    Neil, J. Staal (8 )
    Foligno, Heatley, Spezza (7)
    Alfie, Clowe, Letang, Zetterberg (6)
    Crosby, Lee (5)

    Little bit of Ottawa bias in the picks!

    Interestingly, at the same price as Zetterberg, Hossa was only taken twice?

    I noticed that as I was entering them, but I would consider Zetterberg to be the pick out of the two as well. Something about Hossa that un-nerves a lot of people I think. New team, only one year (theoretically) has horrible fluxes up and down from year to year, pretty streaky. I don't know what it is, but I only considered him once - and when I couldn't fit him in, he was the first to go.

    As for Kuba, Neil and Foligno - they're all cheap and have potential to eclipse the 2.5 (or 35 points, 25 and 30 I believe it is).

    Letang is all the astute people out there.

    Clowe was cheap as heck as well, J.Staal too.

    Good pool, it was tough.

    I'm going to go right ahead and say it-

    Hossa is the most overrated player in the game.

    With that said, he's one of the best two way players in the game at the same time. I would never pick him in a pool though, it's what he does in his own end that makes him so special, not the other.

    Last year was an aberration. He played most of the season on a horrible Thrashers team in a bad environment and he wanted out.

    Before that... his point totals for the 4 previous years were right up there with the league leaders.

    This year, he will be playing with someone top notch all year long, regardless of what line he is on. He was also the best player on the ice by far in the SCF last year... better than Crosby, Malkin, Zetterberg or Datsyuk.

    ... just making a case for him Smile I think I took them both (can't remember)

    So far Jordo... I think I am winning the Hossa debate Razz

    Seriously, he was the best player on the ice in last year's SCF... including Malkin, Crosby, Zetterberg, Datsyuk. Now that he is surrounded by the cast in Detroit, I am not surprised he is off to the start he is.
