  1. This seems like a weird nomination process; if you pick your favorite, the bottoms wont get any votes. So I picked a bottom one since obviously "You're Next" or "Fvck You" would be nominated. This should just be a poll of the bottom third etc.
  2. Yea, they did during the lock out shortened seasons which were shorter than what we played this year.
  3. Oh, it wasn’t a submission. It was just a regular gif in reaction to my own suggestion. We could do 64 with 4 distinct categories and allows for a better matchups for what people are looking for in their favorite gif until the Finals: 1) Player Reaction 2) Playmaking/Hits 3) Humor/Pop Culture 4) ????? or a breakout of one of the above
  4. Fck it... why start at the sweet 16... we’re doing 64!!!
  5. This took way too long for me to make than I'd like to admit; and we already know Stevens wins lol
  6. Hopefully they can get some more regular season games in, in April
  7. I would think if they cancelled the remaining regular season and jumped to playoffs; they'd prorate the points for the standings to not give an advantage to any team who played more games.
  8. Well, the conditional pick was on him playing... so just a prospect for the opportunity to pay Vatanen half his remaining deal and medical care.
  9. They had the 13/14/15 picks in 2015... unfortunately, they missed horribly. They went with Jakub Zboril, Jake DeBrusk and Zachary Senyshyn. I hate when people compare drafts on missed picks that you'd never take... but it's absolutely to fair to judge by literally the next two picks... 16 Mathew Barzal and 17 Kyle Connor. If they came away with Barzal, Connor and DeBrusk, that would have been huge. And if you say Zboril was a defensemen and they wanted one with those 3 picks... 18 Thomas Chabot
  10. Right, I think allocating a high pick or a keeper slot is fine... but you shouldn’t allocate both. I tend to pick my goalies late... I grabbed Bob late and then flipped him to Red for Draisaitl. The trade was one for one. Then I did lock up Murray with a keeper pick because I was lacking elite options to hold on to. Now I have 3 elite keepers, and can really build out my team next season. I might grab a goalie early, but most likely, I’ll push it off and find the hot goalie. There will always be a goalie from out of nowhere, and a cant miss goalie that misses. Its why I push off goaltending, barring injury, forwards are like WRs in football, they are more consistent, especially the top tier.
  11. I don't find that to be true. We overpay for reliable goalies much like we overpay for QBs in fantasy football, but there are always good options to plug in late and to pivot until you find one that works for the season. Like this year I went with Lunqvist in the 13th (didnt work) and Darcy Kuemper in the 15th, which did. And I picked up Varlamov (who was drafted in the 11th but dropped) and Karpisalo. I'm not league leading, but top third or so... even with 9 games behind target (which matters for saves, wins and shutouts). Without a doubt goaltenders have an outsized impact on the standings as 82 games controls 4 categories... whereas 1476 games control the other 10 categories. Percentage wise that's 94.7% of games for 71.4% of the points (forwards/def) and 5.3% of games for the other 27.6% of points (goalies) So if you overpay successfully for anything, overpay for a goalie.

  13. It really should say Vancouver’s 1st And add (Via Tampa Bay) or something like that if you want to track it as a tampa thing...
