I'm in first in one pool & third in another. I find that trading often helps. The pool that I'm winnin we have unlimted trades, we just have to pay for them. The other pool we can only make 2 trades a month so inguries are killing me.

I'm in third and probably the only reason I'm not in first is because of injuries... namely Gaborik.

- I won one in November (only 2 people) haha!
- I'm in first in another (4 people)
- I'm in 5th in one (9 people)

And I'm kicking Harper's butt in an Iginla vs. Naslund side bet.

I'm in the middle of the pack. I historically pick too many "long shot" picks, so generally, I win huge if every hits, or I'm middle of the road.

I'm third, but over the last 5 days I've gained about 35 on the leader, so things are looking good. I'm loving my San Jose and Tampa guys right now (Marleau, Thorton, Lecavlier (sp?), St. Louis, Prospal)

Next to last in one, and sixth in the other. I picked too many underdogs I guess, Dustin Penner, Jordan Stall, and where the hell is Pavel Datsyuk this year??? Oh well. Good thing I stuck with a few go to guys as well.

Would Carle be better than Rozival? or does it really matter.

Well they have the same amount of points, but Carle has played 5 games less. I would take Carle before Rozsival anyday but it's your call.

Notice how EVERYBODY is in first place...?

Good thing we have the Halfway pool here so we can sort things out a bit...although with the settings we had to use (all teams can have the same player) it may not settle too much.

PS - IHC, I'll allow you to join after the deadline...I'm excited to see how you're going to do without Malkin or Crosby, and a team full of Maple Laffs

Go Sens
Crosby is God
Tucker is a douche

Dude, as much as I would like to see that too, if you let one past the rules you let them all, or you leave it as is. Only fair.

Ya im right in the middle but in my pool everyone has practically picked the same people and the people who are in first have only about 3 different people than me so ya i dont, I have alot of potential players and goalies including giguere and miller that can be the best they can this year with the amount of wins their teams have so I may be ready to pull ahead for a lead


P.S that means u oil country

Vintage, instead of posting four different times, you can edit your posts by clicking on the icon that looks like a page and a pencil. I strongly recommend you use this in the future.
