Hey, Sid. Is it normal for the inside of your bung-hole to itch?

Frankly I think people that haven't submitted yet should get punished because with the leaks going out there's a lot of info someone who submits today gets that I didn't have when I made my awful list .

I don't really care though it's all in good fun EH

Really.

Fair point. I'd dig a shot at a new av, but if my early evening submissions will be tracked despite being exempt from the top prizes that's fine too.

I honestly don't care, I just wanted to guilt trip people who submitted today and get my preemptive excuse in for when I win the bad team award.

Especially because leaks are starting to come out with increasing frequency. If they continue to come out I may stipulate a soft deadline after which submissions won't be eligible for the matching prize.

Given that the leaks are building up like crazy, it's probably best just to start that soft deadline now.

I decided to go with something closest to the actual roster based on the rumours and the like:

Still not convinced their roster is worse than Vancouver's.

e: I mean, Vegas' pick from the Canucks appears to be "nobody."

I just submitted my 2nd, real submission that is cap compliant. Given the leaks and the soft deadline for the matching prize, this is obviously for the team that will be better than Vegas

I got 15/30 right. That's lower than what I was hoping for.

I only had 11 right, RIP my team. Grats on the Knights for getting Engelland, Emelin, Sbisa of your own volition over Kulak/Shinkaruk, Hudon/Davidson or Gaunce/Rodin.

It's the arrogance of the subtext: The province of human affairs is a field best left to dilettantes' extraordinary gift for the feigning of paralysis. For saying nothing at all. For daydreams of black-tie affairs at Rideau Hall. An acceptance speech. Sustained applause.

ouch, 9/30

8/30 for me. I had some good ones in there like Pickard from the Avs and Schlemko from the Sharks, but kinda beefed it on some gimmes, (picking Kruger instead of TVR from Chicago, not taking MAF), but in my defense, I picked the night the lists came out, rather than after some deals had been reported.

This team would be pretty grindy and score very few goals.
Cap should be good, it's like $57m or something.

edit: Also I guess I was dumb and got some UFAs but whatever.

I think I got 8.

9 picks correct. Which is bad since I tried to make a team they would actually pick, for the most part.

I simply did not have the know-how to be able to select people like Bellemare, Sbisa and Engelland.
