Sounds like fun. Wish I had thought of something like that...

Wait, he had a doll of the current opponent's captain in the sharks mouth during the round as some sort of voodoo-thing or he sacrificed the defeated captain to the shark afterwards? I am on the edge of my seat waiting to hear about doll!Crosby's fate.

I, too, am a Draft eligible.


I don't claim to know much about hockey, so I'm readily up for OT shenanigans; that's a plus. Sometimes as the instigator, which would be a minus.

I can't Photoshop, MS Paint or Gimp, so that's a minus. I could learn though, so that's a plus. But I won't, so that's another minus.

I got a western team on the side, the Jerts, who are definitely positively going to make it though, so you have to share me with them. That's a minus. But the attitude expressed within this paragraph is probably a plus.

I consider the IIHF Ice-Hockey World Championships, which will be played May 5th to 21st this year, to be the upmost echelon of hockey, and the tournament will divide my attention, which is a minus. That means I will also have a serious conflict of interests if you have any decent Finns in the roster who I would want to be freed up, but it's a plus if you like to watch that kind of thing. If you have crappy Finns I will wholeheartedly wish you will continue. I use words like 'echelon'; that's a plus. I'm not sure if I know what 'echelon' means, so that's a minus.

I'm GMT+2 and have the habit of sleeping at night which somewhat hampers participation in live GDTs. But, I work night shift at least 2 nights out of 10, and the nature of my job allows for watching hockey, and I am not stranger to switching for night shifts or agreeing to do overtime so I can watch hockey, which technically means someone else is paying me to watch Your Team play hockey, and you can't walk past that kind of windfall in the world we're living.

Back in the 90's my mom at some point of time bought me a Kings backpack, a Lightning cap and a Sharks t-shirt, so if you're any of those teams we have common history to initially build on.

I think Negan is doing good job in adverse conditions, and has managed to build closest thing resembling a state after a zombie apocalypse. Rick Grimes is only good in getting everyone who's not Rick Grimes killed.

I have an okay +/- and I have had a good season this far and I think I should be picked 1st overall in this Draft.


Let's laugh together through the tears.

1. Last year was unfair because it seemed like you ran the lottery for all 32 selections, instead of determining seeding and having two rounds. I remember one team had two very late picks as a result. Televise the lottery drawing and set up two rounds of fun.

2. Is there a list of participants yet? I need to start scouting.

The only requirement to join #hfblues is to let Chicago people (not even fans, just anyone from Chicago) that their pizza sucks.

And St. Louis' is any better? Provel isn't cheese or anything fit for human consumption. Besides, Detroit pizza is where it's at.

As always, the family ties/boyhood favorite clause in my contract will be triggered, thus automatically transferring my fandom to the Penguins, so I'm draft-exempt.
