Week 11 – Christmas Turtles & The WJC

RAMBLINGS

Epic battle between Stifler & JBR this past week. It was the third instalment of the “Great Turtle Race,” aka “The Fall for Auston Matthews” and it didn’t disappoint as JBR won the rubber match and is putting some distance between the two.

Year 2: you get light-sabres

JBR is the leftie.

Both teams iced their best lineups in hopes of taking the lead looking competitive (but not too competitive) and climbing up the standings having better odds in the lottery.

JBR v. Stifler. Don't let anyone say it's a fake battle.

Just a reminder of what you’re playing sewering for.

So what happened this past week?

  • Cordy had big week with 48 points; Stifler had the low with 15
  • Perfect weeks for Derko, Cordy, & GoJo; Oh-fers for Orv, Stif, eZ, & Rolphy (and Rolphy had a 37 pt week – life is unfair)
  • JBR’s had wins in each of his past 3 weeks
  • Who’s Hot: Cordy’s 7-0-2, Derko’s 5-0-1, GoJo’s 6-1-1, as is Erty
  • Erty has moved up from 9th to 6th in the past 3 weeks.
  • Who’s Not: Orv’s 0-5, Vinny’s 1-7-1, Stifler (records available upon request)
  • The pick-up is a lottery pick now, but a 2 was rolled so it’s Stifler again.
  • Coming up this week: No games WTF! Yes, that’s correct, “No games Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.”

CHRISTMAS PLAYER EXCHANGE THIS THURSDAY
The traditional Christmas Player Exchange breaky is once again slated for Denny’s, Dec 24th @ 10ish. If you can’t make it and want to put a player into the exchange, put it on the board, or send it to the kmsh before Thursday.

JERSEY FOUL

The Maple Leafs are considering changing their uniforms. The public is offering suggestions.

Leafs are getting new uniforms. The blue satin skate covers are a nice touch.

There have been suggestions for new Canucks logo & jerseys…

POTW

There was no clear winner for POTW as 5 players tied with 8 points:  Karlsson & Crawford from Team Cordy, Gojo’s Luongo, Erty’s Varlamov, and Derko’s Koivu who gets the honour as the only player who doesn’t have an adjusted category.

We never talk about the goalies for TEAM Stifler or TEAM JBR. We should. They are solid. In fact, here’s Stif’s Curtis McElhinney making a great stop.

MUSIC TO PERUSE STATS BY

In the current musical climate filled with “Bieber” and his ilk, it’s good to see some young rockers from Minnesota that have respect for the classics. Check out Hippo Campus’s cover of “Don’t Bring Me Down.”

Of course ELO’s original is better, but the Kid’s Are All Right.
