The Wait is Over! GOJO 2013 OFHL CHAMP!!!

GOJO wins first OFHL Championship since joining the league in 1994-1995 – 18 long years ago!  It was Oct.3 1994 (Seth Jones birthdate, coincidentally) when GoJo made his entry to the OFHL, selecting Hasek 2nd overall.  And the championship is long overdue.  After finishing 2nd for 3 straight years, he finally released his death-grip on the Derko Cup and grabbed the big prize, while assuring that Derko’s Cup returns to its rightful owner.  It was good to see that the last week of the season saw GoJo’s Red Wing Vets come through for him as Zetterberg posted 10 points, and Datsyuk got 8 – a just reward for the faith Team GoJo put on those two through the years. (Payout: $220)

LIKE A CHAMP!

LIKE A CHAMP!

DERKO falls out of first on the last week of the season, reminiscent of 2007-08 when he lost on the last day.  He couldn’t overcome a pumped-up Team Rolphy who took offence to being called “a bunch of baconnaise-smothered bottom-feeders” by the kmsh last week.  Enjoy your trophy, Derko.  Get out your glue gun and shiny beads and sexy-up that thing. (Payout: $120)

3rd goes to CORDY who sat in last in week 3, made a charge, but sold the farm and looks like he’ll be headed south in the standings for a few years. No draft picks in the first 5 rounds…. “Release the Kraken!” (Payout: $80)

4th and the last money spot goes to ERTY who quietly put together a strong season, and looks set to challenge again next year even if he keeps up his Tambellini-style of managing (just draft, never trade).  (Payout: $40…. is $40)

ORVY finds himself outside of the money, but gets to throw his name in the lottery.  An up and down year, should be back strong next year even if it’s just “the napkin” saying that. or the LacLa Hache stairs. (Payout: 1st Loser)

Draft 2006

Draft 2006

6th -HAUKSTER wasn’t far behind ORV.  It’s good to see the youth movement finally paying dividends for Haukster in a New York Islanders kind of way. (Payout: NOT 1st Loser)

7th – EZ is moving up slowly and is getting ready to leave the Vinny Table soon (Payout: Head of the Vinny Table)

8th – FULTY – WTH, dude? Just a “filthy” year? (Payout: next year)

9th – ROLPHY put together some good weeks and looks like he’s headed in the right direction. (Payout: doesn’t have to hot-tub with Fulty)

10th – VINNY just can’t bear to leave his table (Payout: gets to sleep in the basement)

11th – the good ship T-MAN was on a re-positioning cruise this year.  Might have been the right time to do it over the shortened season. (Payout: be patient, young Padawan)

12th – It was an interesting year for the new guys as well.  STOOS was thrown to the sharks at the draft as everyone tried to get his draft & dispersal picks, but he waded through that, made a few good pick-ups, several key trades (Giordano will anchor his D-line for years to come,) but in the end it was just a rookie team out there as his 9 points in the last week will attest.  Better things to come, Stooser! (Payout: 1 year wiser & the 1st pick overall?)
