Just looking over everyone's rosters.  I actually don't mind mine.  I gave up some points early on but liked my position selections for wings.

Rob's got the ultimate risk/reward team IMO.  Ladd, Ennis, Stastny, Jagr, Kessel, Yandle, Kovalchuk, Crosby all have huge potential returns.  But the potential has to be rewarded and present to pay off. 

Hard to believe a guy like Spezza has fallen all the way to garbage time too.

Yeah, I went that way with Crosby right off the bat and sort of decided to roll with it.  No idea if I'm defending the title or if I just wrapped up last place.

Should be fun at least.

I wasn't able to attend the draft, but I'm happy with how my team ended up.  I'm pretty stoked to have guys like Malkin, Datsyuk, Nash, and Kesler.  I've got Spezza, who I think deserves to be rewarded with a good season.

Mostly RISK so far.  Meanwhile...

Crosby - DTD
St. Louis - DTD
Chara - DTD
Gonchar - DTD
Stastny - IR
Lehtonen - IR

Argh...

Only 9 points separates 2nd and 5th place.  It's anyone's game.

Hey now, I'm 120 back, but I've got a gazillion extra games to use compared to the people in front of me.  If I can manage to use them, I'm still in this thing!

And if I could just have Sidney Crosby back.   :'(

Refer back to 'risk/reward' post.

At least Crosby has a very valid reason.  I'm almost to the point of dropping my first round pick  ::)  My second pick hasn't been all that much better.  I'm where I am in the standings because of those two and I selected them, so I can't even look for legitimate sympathy anywhere.  Ugh.  Bobby frickin' Ryan.  >:(

Yep, I knew what i was getting into.  I also haven't done a good job of using all these games, at all.  I'm scrambling now to figure out if I'll be able to make the most of that and claw my way back into things.

That was a hell of a night you had on Tuesday Scott -- 19 pts.  You're making me nervous.  ;)

Looking at games played, I don't think you have anything to worry about from Scott.

Quite frankly, even as far back as I am, I think I have a decent shot at 3rd or 2nd these clowns don't totally screw up the last few weeks.

Agreed that I have no chance at 1st...I think I'll finish 3rd

Congrats to Jesse on winning this year.  Also nice job Rob in climbing back into things. 

The guy who finished second did pretty well too given he spent a month in Africa without internet access and then moved from Regina to California at the start of March. 

No guessing picks for me next year  ::)  Hell, if that's the best I can do I might go via autodraft.

Yep, congrats Jesse!



As for that climb back into it... I ****** up by not using all my games.  I could have had a pretty legitimate shot at 2nd if I'd just paid more attention earlier.   I missed 2nd by 12 points and I had 17 unused games for skaters, and 16 at goalie.  My fault totally, but disappointing all the same.
