Week 10 – Finding Niemi
The trade of Niemi to team Derko seemed to spark the squad, and even though he circumvents the rules by playing a D-Man at Forward (Gary Bettman said it’s OK), DERKO didn’t need any help this week as his guys went crazy and amassed 57 points. Even Taylor Hall decided to play for Derko this week, and he will need it after Sid took a nasty one in the chops. DERKO how has a 2 point lead over GOJO, with Cordy, Orvy, Erty, & EZ all remaining within striking distance. DERKO likes to say that he has a 2 point lead over the Derko Cup.
Stoos gets the Pick-Up yet again as the Week 10 p/up goes to a lottery again and a “1” is rolled. T-Man & Rolphy were also in the lotto. Next week will see the last pick-up awarded. The Week 9 pick-up was traded from Stoos to Cordy who picked up John Gibson AH.
NHL trading deadline is this week. OFHL trading deadline is Sunday at Midnight.
Sure, Niemi’s 12 point week should have given him POTW honors, but after his recent display on the slopes of Timothy, ORV is the winner of the POTW. Orv claims he tore his calf muscle hitting a 360 off the riser, but witnesses said it was best described as a three-legged dog trying to piss on a tree. Coincidently, Orv’s mishap falls on the one year anniversary of slicing his big toe wide open seconds after drunkenly slurring “?Donde Esta El Banyo?’ to a very attractive palm tree.
