I suppose. I know you're exaggerating to get the point across, but the impact that a move like that would have in the NHL is very different then this situation, where I don't see how the butterfly effect would have changed much. Besides, Gary Bettman is a Pens/Phoenix fan while Campbell is an idiot/has his son on the Bruins, so maybe the ATD is taking a step towards becoming like the NHL. (jokes)

I'd like to liken this entire situation to an M. Night Shyamalan movie.


There needs to be a twist that you'll "never see coming" or else we'll see it coming.

I think it's more like an episode of Joe Schmo 2. Complete with "falcon twists" and "the most shocking eviction ceremony yet".

I just noticed Guy Lapointe has the most fitting name I can think of lol

Lapointe ''La pointe'' basically means ''the point''

Guy ''the Point''

Should have picked it up earlier

And yes , I'm aware of a guy name Mario Lemieux , but you can't really say ''Le mieux'' in french so I don't know why this name even exist ( except if you say ''il est celui qui se porte le mieux'' which as no real relation with saying he was ''the best'' , ''the best'' would be ''le meilleur'' )

Don't thank me for the french class

Rookie GM having trouble ranking the Thomas D. Green division. I've looked at the lineup assassination thread...anyone have additional comments on any of those teams?

I think we have a difficult division to judge, because all the teams in our division have been constructed in such different ways. It's really comparing apples to oranges and try to figure out how they would mesh playing against each other.

In another related matter, the last 5 pages of this thread have been hilarious and refreshing. The last post TDMM in the ''dirt thread'' made me laugh in real life!

I will vote in the next hour or so.

I'm having the most trouble with that division, mainly because no team deserves to finish last!

Yes, that's right, plus I'll accept stragglers that come in while I am tallying.

I have received votes from the following 25 GMs:

velociraptor
hedberg/vancityluongo
dwight
Sturminator
BraveCanadian
Billy_shoe
stoneberg
Modo
ReenMachine
leaf lander
DoMakc
Johnny D/Reds4Life
home nugget
vecens24
overpass
markrander87
MadArcand
EagleBelfour
DaveG/tony d
Dreakmur
Nalyd Psycho
raleh (2 of 4 divisions)

I know I will be getting votes from these GMs:

seventieslord
Boy Wonder
TheDevilMadeMe
Leafs Forever

That would be 29 sets of votes - not too shabby. That leaves the following 14 eligible GMs:

arrbez, BM67, Cognition, hungryhungryhippy, JFA87-66-99, jkrx, matsblue13, Mr Bugg, MXD, nik jr, papershoes, Rick Middleton; monster_bertuzzi

bolded are "acting GMs" with no obligation who are still free to vote.

italicized are co-GMs whose partners have already voted, so they are free to vote but their team responsibility is handled.

The rest, aside from nik jr, are guys who aren't around often, GMs who already appear to have checked out, one who is jaded over TheSabreGate and has probably already disconnected from the process, one who wanted to quit with 5 picks left and only stuck around as a courtesy, one who is having internet issues, and one who can't send PMs and is supposed to be emailing.

I'd be happy with even three votes from those nine at this point.

Still - good turnout!

so co-gms can vote 1 time each? seems like an advantage putting their team first.
