Nation Network Hockey Pool: October 30th Edition

Jonathan Willis
October 30 2011 03:19PM

After many requests, we’ve finally sat down and updated the standings in the Nation Network Hockey Pool.

The contest rules and original entries are here. Scoring is as laid out in the original post, with one exception: because goaltenders are graded primarily on save percentage, some have run up enormous totals in the early going (Jonathan Quick, for example, is worth 152.5 points today, better than the entire total of several teams), so I have divided their totals by eight to prevent them from crazily skewing the contest. As the season continues, these updates will feature goaltender totals divided by a lesser amount.

Every effort was made to include as many entrants as possible. Several entrants left one or two spaces blank; in these cases the box(es) was/were filled by alphabetical order. Entrants who left more than three spaces blank were eliminated from consideration.

Curse You Roberto Luongo!

Because it’s so early, several players are in the negative, dragging their teams down with them – either goaltenders with less than a 0.900 SV% or skaters with an ugly plus/minus. Here are the worst of the lot in the early going:

Player Score
Roberto Luongo -77.5
Ilya Bryzgalov -45
Henrik Zetterberg -0.5
Eric Staal -7.25
David Krejci -3.75
Dustin Byfuglien -0.75
Brayden Schenn -5
Tomas Kaberle -2
Cam Fowler -2
Joe Corvo -1
Erik Johnson -1

I think the problem with the dreaded "double post" is the site being a little slow and people clicking "post comment" a second time out of impatience.

Maybe yes, maybe no?

#335 overall, sheesh. Still early and I think I have some players that haven't played much yet(Crosby). I think Bryzgalov might be killing me.
