Mike (Nov 27): Small slate tonight!
Mike (Nov 22): Mike updated the pool
Mike (Nov 22): cneilson and kingryguy tie for top spot for the week! I took underdog Kings, they didn't quite come through. I was this close to pulling the trigger on underdog Coyotes, they did win. Coulda, shoulda...

Mike (Nov 14): Looks like we have a tie this week, congrats cneilson and Sheilagh!
Mike (Nov 14): Don't you hate it when you pick an upset to try to get ahead of the field - Florida for example - and they lose in OT!
Mike (Nov 10): Mike updated the pool
Mike (Nov 7): Moir with their second weekly win, congrats! Predicting the NHL... where 67% is awesome.
Mike (Nov 2): Mike updated the pool
Mike (Nov 2): Phildoux wins the week on the tie-breaker! 8 correct but edges out Bobby Orr, cneilson, and Pigskin53 by a goal. I went 0-2 on the early games and expected better from Winnipeg and Pittsburgh w/ Crosby back.
Mike (Oct 30): Come on Islanders! Bah
Mike (Oct 25): Edged JERJER by a half goal on the tie-breaker
Mike (Oct 25): Congrats Moir on the weekly win!
Mike (Oct 25): We never settled the payouts in this pool. We have 23 paid entries, $575 in the pool, and we are playing 10 weeks to December 18th. Let's do $40 to the weekly winner ($400), and then $125 to our overall winner after 10 weeks, and $50 for 2nd place. Cool? Cool.
