Though we got league average goaltending overall last year from Pav and Hutch, we're probably one of the teams that could actually use him.  Don't get your hopes up though, won't happen.  Hutch is dirt cheap and Pav is not, but the Jets have shown no indication of doing anything with Pavelec other than playing him.   :'(  Two more years of him I'm afraid. 

Pleased with our minor league guys in Hellebuyck and Comrie though.   :)

If you guys could go ahead and let Backstrom look awesome so it increases his trade value, that'd be swell, thanks!

Thanks, Jets - I knew you guys would come through for me! :)

I'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest that scouts recognize it was neither teams A lineup.   ;)

Help me out here: when Madison was hiding under the car, wasn't that a zombie?  I didn't notice any head wounds but thought the eyes were funked out.  Might just be me over-interpreting.

Kind of hoping the ******bag drug addict gets disappeared.  Check that.  Really hoping.

Here we go - heading to the Wild/Sabres pre-season game tonight!  Can't believe it's hockey season already.

I'm excited to see the Eichel kid and then the 3-on-3 OT session.  I know it's just pre-season, but him and McDavid were so hyped, it'll be interesting to see one of them in person finally.


Already?  I was thinking finally.  State of hockey.  Pfft.   ;)

Curious to see if McDavid makes the road trip to Winnipeg on Friday as that's my first game.  Got some weird team here tomorrow night but I'm not going.  18 games this year.  So far. 

Hmm, y'all must be too young to remember him, but Daryl Dawkins passed away this week.

He was a joy to watch play.  Breaking backboards and whatnot

Not a good thing to be from that 76ers championship team: Moses Malone goes next.  It was a really enjoyable era in basketball. 

Not sure if Jackie Collins quite qualifies, but she passes away as well

That barber is the best character so far. "Good people are the first to die." He would fit in well with Rick and Co.

I think the Mom's "distant, concerned stare" is going to become a meme similar "stuff n thangs," "CORAL," and "M'ask you sumthin."

I like the barber best as well, though I think his "weak" comment is going to come back to haunt him very shortly.  His wife is done.

Enjoyed this one a little more.  Starting to get there, but still much confusion.  Don't think the intervention of the military is going to be a positive experience.

Found this at Wally, I had to get it for my Ewok focus.  ;D

Perhaps we should move all this to the POTF2 boards?

Misplaced question but I'll ask anyway.  Did POTF2 figures have more articulation than TFA figures?

Too little time is the reason Jeff's not playing hockey anymore (that and he's a scaredy cat).

miss you.

Fair enough... I guess that's my argument, although it feels a little spun when you say it that way and I think you're over stating how much time I spend with this stuff.  It's not like I'm spending an hour a day on fantasy sports. 

The leagues are just feeling a little stale and uninteresting to me compared to these other ones I'm in and I was thinking everyone else might enjoy something that (in my humble opinion) has the potential to make everything more engaging and interesting.  Sounds like I was probably mistaken.

I assure you no offense meant so due apologies if it seemed spun.  I guess I was overemphasizing the point. 

Leagues are stale in many respects, aside from football, but that's a lot to do with we all know how each other generally thinks.  I know your, Scott's and Dressel's tendencies frankly from a drafting perspective.  But I think we really need some new blood in many of the league's.  Basketball seemed especially absurd last year as everyone was sporting an absolute all-star team.  I think if hockey or basketball (and baseball for that matter) were ten (or perish the thought) teams deep it would be very different because we wouldn't be sitting there with our benches full of guys that would easily have been drafted in a ten team league and starting.  Put it this way, from a hockey perspective almost no one drafts Winnipeg Jets.  It's not that they don't have anyone that scores, it's just you don't need one of the 5-6 guys that put up 60-65 points because you can fill that with someone better from another team and the league usually isn't deep enough to force you to grab someone like that.  If we were contemplating non-starters in basketball for our lineup or trying to tease out some hockey team's third liner that's putting up points it would be more fun.  Better than what you propose?  Perhaps not.  But much more similar to what we have in football where although not ideal, we at least have hunger each week on the waiver wire and you have to actually consider if you want to give up your top priority for that week's surprise star. 

We just can't seem to generate any interest in getting other people to play.  That sucks. 

Well I think that's part of the point though - you set it and forget it for a week and you're not going to be toast.  I agree though, if I have the time it's a better format but I don't have the spare time between work, volunteering, coaching and driving the kid around to her stuff.  Same deal for most of the Canadian guys in the hockey league and probably Scott too, though I won't speak for him.  Too little time is the reason Jeff's not playing hockey anymore (that and he's a scaredy cat).  Different lifestyles. 

To me it's the same argument for the way our waivers work in fantasy football.  For guys like you or Patrick that have the time and interest to watch all the games like a hawk, our waiver system largely sucks.  You're THAT invested in it.  But most of us aren't for various reasons, not the least of which is most of our spouses don't play the games; you're lucky that yours does but it's not everyone's reality. 

I disagree with you on baseball and I think most in our league would, at least from the perspective of using games up.  There may be some shortages for various reasons - catcher notably or an infield position where you have a guy that's hurt lots but not IR.  As for pitching, I can't imagine if we had more innings (and heaven help me but wins is the most ridiculous stat in that league). 

Your argument remains largely, and I'm paraphrasing - "I've got a higher level of interest and time to dedicate to the leagues and I find that greater level of involvement far more engaging."  Fair enough and I'm not remotely suggesting you're not correct.  I just don't think most are willing to spend that kind of time.  Frankly I'm amazed that the leagues have continued this long. 

Regardless of my opinion if more people want to change and follow your suggestion I'll go merrily along and continue playing.  I'm only about three years away from more spare time...

Likewise on the slow, but truthfully that was expected so I can buy into it.  I liked how the fat internet nerd kid understood what was coming.  Good nerd nod. 

The rest of the characters?  Nope, not invested after that at all.  None I'm too worried about losing at all and the only one seemingly with enough going for them to survive is the step-dad dude, the rest should be fodder unless they show something real soon. 

Gotta tell you, after seeing the drug dealer zombie I'm picking up the handgun on principal alone.
