JBR is all over this. Stifler isn’t.

SHRAPNEL

This past week was the 20 Year Anniversary of the Last Great Line Brawl between the Avs and the Red Wings. It was the get-back-at-Claude-Lemieux-for-his-cheap-shot-on-Kris-Draper game. It had it all. Legends wrestling, Sucker punches, Goalie fights, a Flying Shanahan… Watch the grainy video and think of simpler times.

And what was the result of all this? 22 penalty minutes. No suspensions. No game misconducts. Neither goalie ejected. McCarty even came back to score the winner on Patrick Roy late in the game. Good fun.

OFHL DRAFT 2017

The Lottery Draft was held on Friday and here were the odds:

  • R&S – 20%
  • Tman  (from Orv) – 17.8%
  • JBR – 15.6%
  • Stiler – 13.3%
  • Erty – 11.1%
  • GoJo – 8.9%
  • Vinny – 6.7%
  • Haukster – 4.4%
  • Tman (from eZ via Cordy) – 2.2%

Side note: Fulty’s motion that you must be present to win was debated. It was agreed to hold off the vote for this motion until after the lotto pick had been made

And the result was:

Erty (at 11.1% chance) won the lottery

He was pretty pumped!

If Erty leaves the pool, T-Man (from Orv) gets the #1 pick.

This will be the highest pick for Erty since ’12 when he grabbed Galchenyuk MT #3.

Denny’s Christmas Gift Exchange Revisited

Remember the Christmas Player Exchange at Denny’s? No? Here’s a breakdown of the the players traded, their points since Christmas, and their new team.

PLAYER  POINTS SINCE CHRISTMAS NEW TEAM DUMPED BY
Chara BOS 22 JBR Orv
Jokinen FLA 21 T-Man Fulty
Ladd NYI 20 Fulty Haukster
Edler VAN 19 Stifler GoJo
Boedker SJ 16 Cordy Rolphy
Ceci OTT 14 GoJo EZ
Grigorenko COL 11 Rolphy JBR
Hudler DAL 9 Erty T-Man
Bjugstad FLA 9 R&S Stifler
Stralman TB 7 Orv Erty
Kulikov BUF 6 Haukster Derko
Garrison TB 4 Vinny R&S
Yakupov STL 2 EZ Cordy
Rubtsov PHI 0 Derko Vinny

JBR had the top point-getter (Chara with 22 since Christmas)

Cordy had the biggest jump (got Boedker, dropped Yakupov = gain of 14pts)

Orv had the biggest drop (got Stralman, dropped Chara = drop of 15pts)

But did it really matter? Or was it just kinda fun? Or could Grigorenko be the next Brent Burns?

PARTING SHOT

March Madness wraps up on Monday night with Gonzaga Bulldogs up against North Carolina. Go Zags!

GO ZAGS! From the members of the Men’s Twist Hockey Team, Class of 2004. (Cordy had too many mimosas at the Pre-Grad Brunch)

So that’s it! The last Sunday night that you have to stop the family movie while you go put in your roster, and then can’t decide between the superstar who plays one game, or the plug who plays five. Enjoy the REAL playoffs.

OFHL Regular $eason Ends; Playoffs Begin

REGULAR SEASON WRAP

  • Season ends with Cordy taking the Championship with a 0.813 winning percentage; 2nd highest since his 0.827 16 years ago.
  • Rolphy ended solidly in 2nd and gets to enjoy the Derko Cup all of next year. We expect to see it adorn one of the Horizons HVAC vans ripping around the Cariboo.
  • With Cordy wrapping up the OFHL Championship last weekend, there was really only one race left to decide: the Third Place money.

3st

  • In the end, Fulty stretched his lead over Derko in the final week and grabbed 3rd spot and the extra $40.
  • T-Man rounded out the 5th & final $ spot. It should be noted that T-Man finished ahead of Derko in player points. Just sayin’.
  • EZ jumped 2 spots in the final week to grab top loser spot and the last lottery spot (which actually belongs to  T-Man)
  • Stifler bests JBR in the Battle of Expansion Cousins
  • Orv finished 2nd last but that just means he will likely get a great lottery pick this yea… wait…what? He traded that pick to T-Man? Oh. Nevermind.
  • A more detailed wrap-up of each GMs season will be released at year end.

PLAYERS OF THE YEAR

Here are the leaders in each category:

Rookie: Matthews TO (Vinny) & Laine WPG (Stifler) 61 points

Vet: Zetterberg DT (Vinny) 62 pts

Forward: McDavid ED (Stifler) 88 pts

D-Man: Burns SJ (Rolphy) 99 pts

And for the 2nd year in a row…

Goal: Holtby WS (Rolphy) 100 pts

Holtby could have been a 3-peater if not for falling to Carey Price back in 2014-15

The Napkin Re-visited

It looked like the napkin would have some validity early in the season, but predicting the final standings of 14 teams seven months before the conclusion is tough work. While the prediction of finish within the top two tiers was relatively close, the bottom tier was almost perfect.

One thing is clear with this prediction business, time spent on the toilet is not directly proportional to your powers of prognostication.

LET THE PLAYOFFS BEGIN!

  • Playoffs will run for the last two weeks of the NHL season
  • Teams will continue to submit weekly rosters for duration of the playoffs
  • Total points for all playoff weeks used to determine playoff winners
  • Playoffs will be tiered based on OFHL regular season final standings
  1. Tier one – all teams that finished in the money at the end of the regular season – Cordy, Rolphy, Fulty, Derko, & T-Man
  2. Tier two- those teams that finished out of the money but not in the bottom 4 – eZ, Haukster, Vinny, GoJo, Erty
  3. Tier three – the bottom 4 teams in regular season – Stifler, JBR, Orv, Ren & Stimpy

The winners of each playoff tier will win the following

  • Tier one – a draft pick at the end of the 5th round in the next year
  • Tier two – a draft pick at the end of the 4th round in the next year
  • Tier three – a draft pick at the end of the 3rd round in the next year

Turn your sound on to really enjoy this… or just imagine Vinny saying “Playoffs?” thirty times.

That’s it boys! Another great season. Let the playoffs begin!

Week 23: Cordy Crowned Champ With One Week to Go!

Cordy: 2016-17 OFHL Champ!

There’s still a week to go in the regular season, but Cordy wrapped up his 10th OFHL Championship and first since 2011-12.

The Party has started at The Dirty Dangler Brewpub in Russet Bluff

Cordy finally relinquishes his 3-year hold on The Derko Cup and will pass that down to Rolphy as The Big Rig has locked down 2nd spot.

There are still a few things to be decided this coming week. The battle for 3rd will be decided as Fulty sits just 2 points ahead of Derko.

T-Man (who had the top week with 50 points) will take the 5th money spot as with 79 points he can’t catch anyone or be caught. Pretty good for a guy who is managing his team from Thailand.

Here’s a refresher on the $ spots:

  • 1st place $200,
  • 2nd place $140,
  • 3rd place $100,
  • 4th place $60,
  • 5th place $40

These five teams will also be in the playoffs together for the 5th round draft pick.

The Second Tier:

Looks like this level is set with Haukster, Vinny, EZ, and GoJo all solidly in the Lottery spots. There is a mathematical chance that Erty could be caught by a late-surging Stifler, but a lot of things would have to align for that to happen. This tier will playoff for a 4th round pick.

Third Tier:

JBR jumped ahead of Orv this week as Orv’s parabolic season continues (and it’s a negative parabola)

Ren & Stimpy hold down the basement spot and will round out the bottom 4 who will playoff for the 3rd round pick in next year’s draft.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK

JBR had a huge week with the help of 8 points from Talbot ED, but it was Marchand BO who helped JBR jump over ORV in the standings with a 9 point week

HOCKEY CARD OF THE WEEK

It’s been a rumor amongst NHL forwards that Nik Kronwall suffers from a severely odoriferous case of on-ice flatulence, brought on by his pre-game routine of raw broccoli, coffee, and crab cakes. He vehemently disputes it, but the truth is evident.

Kronwall makes his “fartin’ face.”

Proof

Ah, fart jokes. Always funny.

SHRAPNEL

The Hockey News came out with their Future Watch 2017 last week. Here’s how each OFHL franchise rates:

THN FUTURE WATCH
TOP 10 PLAYER OFHL TEAM
1 Keller AZ Derko
2 Puljujarvi ED JBR
3 Chabot OT Orv
4 McAvoy BO R&S
5 Eriksson Ek MN Vinny
6 Nylander BF R&S
7 Strome AZ Orv
8 Barzal NI Haukster
9 Sergachev MT R&S
10 Dubois CBJ Haukster

Ren & Stimpy have 3 of the Top 10 (drafted one, traded for the other 2.) Orv & Haukster also have reason to think things are looking up with 2 each in the Top 10.

Here’s a look at the number of Top 100 Prospects each team has, and how many Top 50 each has.

Prospects in the Top 100 In the Top 50
R&S 10 7
Orv 8 7
JBR 7 6
Derko 6 6
Haukster 5 3
eZ 5 3
Cordy 3 3
Rolphy 3 2
Fulty 3 1
Erty 3 0
T-Man 2 2
Vinny 2 2
Stifler 2 0
GoJo 1 0

R&S have a stable full of prospects, while GoJo looks like he could use a solid draft; grab more Bjorkstrand’s and stay away from the Luongos and Sedins.

THE END IS NIGH

One week left, then playoffs:

  • Playoffs will run for the last two weeks of the NHL season
  • Teams will continue to submit weekly rosters for duration of the playoffs
  • Total points for all playoff weeks used to determine playoff winners
  • Playoffs will be tiered based on OFHL regular season final standings
  1. Tier one – all teams that finished in the money at the end of the regular season
  2. Tier two- those teams that finished out of the money but not in the bottom 4
  3. Tier three – the bottom 4 teams in regular season

The winners of each playoff tier will win the following

  • Tier one – a draft pick at the end of the 5th round in the next year
  • Tier two – a draft pick at the end of the 4th round in the next year
  • Tier three – a draft pick at the end of the 3rd round in the next year

That’s it. Have a good week, and….

 

Week 22 – So You’re Telling Me There’s a Chance

The Penultimate week coming up and here’s what we know…

  • Cordy has the OFHL Championship wrapped up if:
    • He wins or ties one game in the next 2 weeks
    • Rolphy loses one game or ties one in the next 2 weeks
  • For Rolphy to win:
    • He has to go 6-0
    • Cordy goes 0-6
    • He makes up the 53 player points he is trailing…

  • Race for 3rd: Fulty is 2 points up on Derko
  • Race for 5th (the last $ spot): T-Man holds a 3 point lead over EZ; 4 over Vinny; 5 over Haukster
  • EZ moves up another spot to sit 6th; 3 weeks ago he sat in 9th
  • The Yakupov Deal (Swap of 1sts) between C (who has T-man’s 1st) & T (who got EZ’s from C) is heating up.
  •  Cordy had the big week with 45 points; also going 3-0 were Derko & EZ
  • T-Man had the 3rd best week but went 1-2
  • Orv had the 3rd worst week but went 2-1
  • As of time of publishing this post, the last pick-up of the year hadn’t been made yet by JBR, but he acknowledged that he was going to grab Team Canada stalwart Taylor Raddysh of TBay

Here is a review of the year’s pick-ups (note: some have already been dropped…)

PLAYER OF THE WEEK+

Cordy’s Malkin PT could have got the nod with his  Gordie Howe hat-trick (if you want to call that a fight) but Erik Karlsson OT had 9 points for the POTW. Here are a few POTW beauties, some past, some present.

One of these guys looks like he's still playing. The other looks like he's enjoyed "Unlimited Poutine."

Fulty was scouting Benn way back when.

Kucherov was co-POTW last week. The guy is rolling right now. He can do no wrong.

SHRAPNEL

Rolphy hits the small screen with his debut on Timber Kings. He now may have enough money to upgrade his “shaggin’ wagon” seen back left.

PARTING SHOT

Here is a refresher on the Playoff Rules (this is done even though I know one of you will text at the end of the 1st playoff week and ask if we are updating our rosters or just playing the same guys for 2 weeks….don’t be “that guy.”)

  • Playoffs will run for the last two weeks of the NHL season
  • Teams will continue to submit weekly rosters for duration of the playoffs
  • Total points for all playoff weeks used to determine playoff winners
  • Playoffs will be tiered based on OFHL regular season final standings
  1. Tier one – all teams that finished in the money at the end of the regular season
  2. Tier two– those teams that finished out of the money but not in the bottom 4
  3. Tier three – the bottom 4 teams in regular season

The winners of each playoff tier will win the following

  • Tier one – a draft pick at the end of the 5th round in the next year
  • Tier two – a draft pick at the end of the 4th round in the next year
  • Tier three – a draft pick at the end of the 3rd round in the next year

Spring Break is coming. If you’re going skiing, be careful in the trees. This guy just skied between two trees — no wipe-out. His friends now call him “Lip Stick.”

Until next week…
