Here is how the standings went in our Hockey Pool AMENDED TO THE COLOUR OF TOAST AS THE PLAYOFFS CONTINUE PopCorn Canucks 111 DONE Tango55 Canucks Funnel Canucks Whimsey St louis Blues 109 Gram Penguins 108 DONE Bread Penguins Corky Nashville 104 reggae Red Wings 102 DONE Linda&Jim Bruins 102 DONE Jamman Devils 102 Tobyn San Jose 96 Calgon Caps 92 Randy Caps Nieciez Caps George C Dallas 89 out Gramma Ann Stars Suer Buffalo 89 out Einstein Buffalo J.E.M. Carolina Cruise Cutie Colorado 88 out earl_m Habs 78 really out bOB Jamaican Hockey Pucks 1 ½ DOA So we can see who the true knowledgeable fans are here at Cruise@ddicts. I'm sure earl and bOB do not fit in that category. Here is how those remaining shape up in their matches in the first round. Los Angeles Kings vs Vancouver Canucks no one vs. PoPcorn/Tango55/Funnel San Jose Sharks vs St Louis Blues Tobyn vs Whimsey Detroit RedWings vs Nashville Predators Raggae vs Corky New Jersey Devils vs Florida Panthers Jammon vs no one Philadelphia Flyers vs Pittsburgh Penguins no one vs Bread/Gram Washington Capital vs Boston Bruins Calgon/Nieciez/Randy vs Linda & Jim So to get the trash talkin' off to a start: I would like to once again congratulate bOB for finishing last with those hard skating Jamaicans..uncanny how he manages to be the reverse pool winner year after year. They did however get points this year. The Canucks again finished first over all this year and would be the favorites in the playoffs save for they play on the West Coast and we are all flakes out here as of course everybody knows. Well Funnel likely didn't know that. No one picked the LA Kings this yr. St Louis would be a favorite of mine because of their coach..but he hasn't been able to skate much lately....but he did loose some more weight. I have picked the Sharks in seasons past but only our AK. hockey fan has them this yr. Nashville also a former pick of mine has that artist Corky pulling for them. Flyers vs Pittsburgh should be a great series if their last game was any indication. Will be interesting to see how the refs work that series out. Noone Picked the Flyers. Bred and Gram got their hopes on the Penguins Washington got their act together at season's end but I doubt if they will get by the Bruins. Three of our Addicts picked the Caps. wow they think they know something the rest of us don't.. Last yr's champs Linda & Jim are in tight here against Calgon/Nieciez & Randy. Jammon will have no competition in his series but I wouldn't want to bet that he goes forward against Florida. So there you have it. Most @ddicts made it to the post season...... but: Earl_m/Cruise Cutie/ J.E.M./Einstein/Suer/Gramma Ann and GeorgeC ...didn't.... thanks for playin'. For those of you that didn't make the pool this yr. Remember to get in next yr. You may trash talk here on the thread BUT...you can not enter now. We once again have been promised a great prize .... Let the Second Season begin.
