- Fulty & Rolphy are perfect 3-0
- Fulty has a 3 point lead on Cordy and is 4 up on Rolphy (who had the big week with 43 pts.)
- Orvy & Haukster making noise as both go 2-0-1
- Erty, T-Man, and the Turtle Racers all go “oh-fer.” Stifler goes “oh-fer November.”
- Orvy’s on a nice little 5-1-2 run.
- JBR & Stifler are tied in winning % but JBR has fewer player points, so he’s at the bottom, and gets the pick-up for week 8 as a “3” was rolled.
Draft 2016 update. Auston Matthews of Zurich is coming back from an UBI and hopes to regain the coveted “Golden Helmet” as leading point getter in the Swiss league.
His 17 points in 14 games is pretty impressive (playing against men) and will make this year’s Great Turtle Race more intriguing as there isn’t a default prize like Eichel this year. Hopefully, the team that misses out isn’t too depressed…. I can just see Stifler dragging his head after missing out on McDavid & Matthews…. kind of like Jahlil Okafor of the 76ers after they went 0-15.
With their recent injury woes, looks like the Oilers will be front & center for the Auston Matthews sweepstakes. This from Wednesday night….
“The Oilers lost their fourth-leading scorer in that game, Nail Yakupov. If you watch the GIF below closely, you’ll see that right before the linesman hits the ice, he realizes that he’s grabbed the jersey of a $2.5M forward in two places and maybe that’s not such a good idea. Too late. Next time, take that fall on your own, buddy.” Eric Rolfson – Vancouver Sun
Oh, those Oilers…if it’s not the refs injuring them, it’s their own teammates… throwback to a few years back when Hall got his head stepped on by a teammate in warmup. (from the hauksterfiles)
Trades & Transactions
EZ and Derko made a trade this week, as did Haukster & Cordy, announced quietly on the board. We need to step up our trade announcement game. Now this…. this is how you announce a trade. (NSFW)
Brap! Brap, brap, brap brap!

Economics of Sport – THE SCORE discussed that players don’t want to play in Alberta or Manitoba anymore (taxes, weather, NDP govt… no, seriously, they said that); they also discussed that Vancouver & TO aren’t that appealing because of housing costs, and when multi-million dollar athletes start complaining about housing costs, ya gotta take notice.

YOUR OPINION MATTERS! (not really, but give it anyway)
We’re past the 1/4 pole for the season so it’s time for a few opinions based on rumblings at Hortys. What do you think of…
But first… AHL POTW — Utica’s Joe Labate, the Canucks fourth rounder ’11, got into a scrap with Sam Morin, of the Flyers organization, and came out of it looking like this:
Rolphy’s Braden Holtby hit double digits as his 10 points accounted for almost a quarter of R’s total.
