$100 Bet !

I have a draft where we draft a team ( $100 each ), and which ever team goes furthest in the playoffs, wins the pot. The last 2 times I have had the Flyers and I have won the last 2 years. This year I picked 8th, So I did not get my boys, Draft went as follows, did I pick the right team.

1- Flyers
2- Sens
3- Canucks (?????)
4- Bruins
5- Tampa
6- Flames
7- Pens (?????)
8- Sharks ( Me)
9- Avs
10- Leafs

Yes, I think you certainly did. I would've taken the Sharks over Tampa and Pittsburgh, maybe the Bruins as well.

I think the Canucks team is probably a good pick, in my mind they're the best team in the West or at least right there with Calgary.

On the british betting site www.willhill.com which I do a lot of sports betting these are the following odds for the Stanley Cup

For those unsure - eg. 10/1 = for £1 on you get 10 back + your 1. Note this is in British pounds so do the math to convert.

Philadelphia - 6/1
Detroit - 10/1
Ottawa - 12/1
Colorado - 12/1
Boston - 12/1
Vancouver - 14/1
Toronto - 14/1
Pittsburgh - 14/1
new Jersey - 14/1
Calgary - 14/1
-------------------
Washington - 100/1

Waiting to get paid and £10 ($15 roughly) will be going on the Flyers and maybe put £5 on Ottawa. If Philly win that will be a nice £60 payout.

For the 8th pick, that was a solid choice. The fact that they're behind the Pens is comical, though.

Granted the Pens have improved VASTLY, I still think they will be fighting for the 7th or 8th ployoff spot.

I have $20 in ahead to head bet. I have the Flyers. He has the Ducks. Whoever goes farther wins.

I am pleased with this gamble.

I don't even have the Ducks in the playoffs and that is totally inconceivable for the Flyers. The flyers have the depth to deal with injuries in the regular season and maybe even the 1st round of the playoffs depending on their opponent. The 20 dollar bet is in great shape, heck i'd put my house on the Flyers.

interesting.


1- Flyers ...well, clearly #1 this year. they have all the tools and coach.

2- Sens ... can they get over the hump, and over the Flyers in the east? plus contigent on Hasek being healthy. a good choice, but don't think they can get past the Flyers in Eastern Conf. But, they certainly, if all things fall into place, can.

3- Canucks (?????) not a terrible choice. quality team with a good coach and powerful offense, solid D. Cloutier, however, does not inspire trust, or a 2.5 mill paycheck. but, they made their bed there.

4- Bruins year 2 of Raycroft will be interesting. this team could make a stir..or could easily underachieve. something about them doesn't give me a solid vibe.

5- Tampa lots of questions and Burke couldn't even wrest the #1 spot from Esche (for good reason, Esche is a far better goalie). Now he and Grahme own the goal...and solid but not the Bulin wall. Most elements are still in place, and a solid team.

6- Flames - young team grew up last year as Kipps grew up in goal. Made solid acquisitions. Could easily re-represent the West. Or a sophmoric slump.

7- Pens (?????) awful choice and should have just mailed $100 to the Penguins to help them as they lose a few more million. This team can and will be a contender in the near future..but despite their pickups they have poor depth, porous defense and a young young team that needs to grow. it will be a big deal just for them to make the playoffs.

8- Sharks ( Me) excellent choice for a team on the rise. great goalie. solid solid team. they could use a bit more scoring punch.

9- Avs lost a lot this year but still wickedly solid with a few new pieces in places. Is Abs the answer for playoffs?

10- Leafs no way....too many brittle men, not enough youth and an old curmegeon in goal who is easily injured. i don't see lots of hope, but they can compete...or at least throw a lot of elbows

Ducks: definately dangerous...definately should be on this list.

Yotes: will make playoffs..but nothing assured. not the deepest of teams or have shown consistency. I am not a Gretzky believer for coach. Boucher is better than Cujo, but nice depth there. they need to make some midyear moves if in the mix to make something happen.

From what you had to pick from I would say you didnt do too bad. Of course there is an argument for other teams, but at 8th pick the sharks were as good of a pick as any, as far as I am concerned.
