See if I can tank both mine and the team's records harder
Carolina Hurricanes 32-32-10 = 74 points in 74 games (50% of total possible points)
CarolinasIdentity 4-8-3 = 11 points in 15 games (36.7% of total possible points)
JacquesStrappe 2-6-3 = 7 points in 11 games (31.8% of total possible points)

Get on my level!

Hence why I'm only using my GDTs for evil at this point.

Since it's a Pens game and nobody else has signed up, I'll take one for the team.

That right there is what I call initiative! Otherwise, I would have thrown up a sloppy "Choose your playoff bandwagon" GDT today.

We should still do that anyway. We can do a draft and everything.

I call anyone but Montreal. I'd prefer a Sun Belt Team, but will settle for anything but a Canadian team.

Caniac playoff bandwagon draft? I think we can get onboard with that. In fact we probably just need to make this a thing.

I'm 110% in. How do we determine draft order though?

Much like the Thrashers dispersal draft, this is going to be opt-in. If someone tries to select a Canes board poster who has decided their playoff allegiance ahead of time and chosen not to participate they will have wasted a pick in the process.

Similar to how they did the Crosby lottery, weight it by the number of times the team has made the playoffs in the past 3 seasons. So by that criteria Columbus and Colorado have the best chance at the #1 pick.

I think that we should do it a different way. Get either 16 or 32 people to volunteer as tribute to be "assigned" to bandwagon a team. Randomly assign numbers to each poster in the alphabetically arranged list. After that, randomly select numbers that correspond to those posters, and let them pick which team they choose to bandwagon.

If we get 16 posters, then we have one bandwagoner per team...or 2 per team with 32 bandwagoners. Once the team is "full", nobody else involved in the draft can choose to bandwagon that particular team, but must default to their next highest preference.


How about that? Once we figure this out, we'll gauge interest and potentially start a "Playoffs Bandwagon 2014" thread for all the general craziness.


EDIT: I think more hilarity would ensue that way. For example, if Poster X has a strong dislike for...say...the Canadiens, and he/she ends up being the last person to choose a team when Montreal is the only team left to choose...it would certainly provide interesting commentary.

And garnetpalmetto leaps up to second place on the leaderboards.

If only we didn't have cancers like Carolinas Identity and JacquesStrappe bringing us down, our team would surely have better results. Now which one of you is fearless leader Eric Staal, and which of you is lazy Russian Alex Semin?

Honestly, do whatever you want. I'm just happy that I'm not going to be posting something in lieu of somebody claiming the game.


Oh, and no takesy backsies.


EDIT: I would also like to point out that if I get a point tonight, I'll finish with the most points out of my GDTs of anybody who participated this year. Just ignore the fact that Dave's points% column value is far greater than mine.

Yeah I already got somethig planned out. Since it's the end of the year and we are eliminated from playoff contention I'm not going to do anything too special, like that jersey satin one against the devils recently. But I going to do something nice since it will be my first GDat.

Any lace where I could view the projected starting lineups? Haven't been on twitter lately but doesn't either the canes account canes game day or chantel usually tweet something about it?

Your best bet would be some combination of Chantel(@CanesChantel), our beat reporter Chip Alexander (@ice_chip) or the Canes web guy, Michael Smith (@MSmithCanes). That's about the only three places you'll find our lines, unless a Detroit reporter happens to see/tweet them.

Otherwise, you probably won't find anything concrete on lineups and may have to guess depending on whether or not there's a morning skate that day.

If you do I fully expect credit for the original idea. You can speak to my agent about that at your leisure.

Ah, but you failed to claim a copyright on the idea. Therefore he owes you no royalties.
