Nation Network Hockey Pool, December 4th Edition

Jonathan Willis
December 04 2011 10:56PM

Martin Brodeur is killing my team, and the teams of a bunch of different entrants. His zero shutouts and 0.879 SV% give him a pool value of -52.5, by far the worst of any current player. Nobody carrying him on their team is in the top-25 this week.

The original entries and rules 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 (or enormously bad) totals in the early going, so I have multiplied their totals by 0.3175 (to reflect where we are in the NHL season) to prevent them from crazily skewing the contest. As the season continues, these updates will feature goaltender totals divided by a lesser amount.

Well, between Willis, Gregor, and I... EULERS IS FIST!!!

My secret: Willis' Fantasy Hockey Guide. [Seriously, Willis: what the heck?] Please publish this again next year. It has served me very well in my other hockey pool.

To the 175 citizens above me, I tip my hat to you.

You'll have to work REALLY hard to get past me and my bottom-10 standing. I'm sinking like a Goddamned rock in this thing.

Any way we could have our point total split by F, D, G? That way I know who to blame.

Nice to see some back to back gains, I think I can thank Crosby for that. Hiller on the other hand is killing me I think.

Yes, I made the top 10... in biggest jumps. Small victories.

Ooch! Tough luck!

I made the Brodeur mistake last year in my Y! pool and wasn't making that again.

At least one of your recommendations--Ray Whitney--has been money in the bank.

I managed to snag Tomas Kaberle as my last pick. We were both wrong about a bounce back season there at this juncture. Yikes!
