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….

#1 FULTY becomes the first GM to win back to back championships since Cordy did so in 2000 & 2001. It took the last week of the season to finally wrap it up. Fulty took over first from Cordy on week 24 and never looked back, going 12-0 in the last month.  Congrats Fulty! Well played. The payout: $190

Fulty shares a tender moment with Patrick Kane.

#2 CORDY’s never one to blame it on injuries, but……..He’s going to blame it on injuries: Price, Halak, Crawford, Seguin, Malkin…and Pouliot didn’t help either. Here Cordy reacts after hearing of his team’s final week collapse and a third straight Derko Cup.

#3 DERKO polevaulted past Rolphy for 3rd. They tied in points and Rolphy actually had 2 more wins, but the first tie-break is player points and Derko took that by 62. Payout: $90

(at this point it should be noted that the Napkin had the top 2 places correct, had 3rd and 4th flipped, and nailed 9th, 12th, & 13th. Getting better every year)

#5 TMAN took 5th and $40 in what was the biggest charge of the final 2 months. He sat in 8th at that point and only grabbed the last money spot over GoJo on the final week. That Craig Smith no-goal could have made the difference.

#6 GOJO improves on his 10th place finish from last year but is still really happy with his team. What’s going to fix this?

One word: Bracelets.

#7 ERTY improves on a 9th place position last year. Would have been higher but drank a case of home brew every Sunday night and it screwed up his changes

#8 ORV Was challenging for some bottom money spots, and was only 8 points back with 2 months to go, but faltered at the end and had the worst record in the OFHL over the final 6 weeks. At least that helped his draft lottery pick.

The Canadian Election is over and we are now blessed to have a drama teacher leading our country. Yes, a “drama teacher.” Bad enough we elected a “teacher,” but a “DRAMA TEACHER?” These are the people who never attend staff meetings unless they need to bitch about who borrowed the box set of Downton Abbey; or that they’re feeling “harassed” because the Chemistry teacher in the room beside them asks if the drama kids could “keep it down a bit” during “Primal Scream Therapy” sessions. C’mon Canada! In what important sector of Canadian society would we say, “We could have a lawyer or an economist lead our organization, but I think it’s time we tried the drama teacher. Oh, and he was also a rafting instructor and camp counselor. Sounds like the perfect leader.”

THE 2014-2015 OFHL IN REVIEW

First time since 1994-95 that player points had to be used to choose the winner of the pool. Fulty and Cordy tied in points, but Fulty held a 14 player point advantage.  Here’s a run-down of the teams and their plight.

1st: FULTY 118 pts, 921 player pts. Fulty took over 1st place in week 13 and only relinquished it for one week on his way to the Championship. He also finished 1st in player points, beating Cordy by 14. 34 point improvement over last year. Team looks solid for next year at goal, D and forwards. The early trade for Lundqvist & Zetterberg, the pick-up of Klingberg, and a late surge from Benn, solidified any weaknesses he had, and made up for the loss of Patrick Kane. Likely a favorite to repeat.(Payout: $190 & the OFHL Championship Trophy)

2nd: CORDY 118 pts, 907 player pts. 2nd year he’s finished 2nd. Was leading early, but a 2-6 run early in the new year lost him the lead and he could never recover. Solid goal and D, but loses a lot of vets and will have to make some decisions about aging forwards. Trading away high picks the past few years has hurt. Still, should be in the money next year. (Payout: $130 and another yerar to enhance the Derko Cup)

3rd: DERKO 91 pts, 875 player points. A year of bad luck. Was in the running for a repeat in the early parts of the season, but a weak January (3-8) hurt his chances. Still, his 875 player points should have given him a lot more wins (he was 1 pt ahead of Rolphy in the standings, yet almost 100 more player points.) Still owns one of the best groups of forwards in the OFHL. Goaltending always an issue. (Payout: $90 and doesn’t have to touch the Derko Cup)

4th: ROLPHY 90 pts, 778 player points. Fourth straight year his points have gone up; had league’s biggest improvement over last year as he jumped up 49 points from last year’s 41. Goaltending was a strength of the team. I guess he took the threat of a Unicorn tattoo seriously. (Payout: $50 and won’t have to sleep at the Sun Peaks Hostel)

5th: HAUKSTER 86 pts, 778 player points. Had some early success, then his team took December off and, well, 5th it is.  Finished 3rd last year, and looks to be in the same range next year. Good goalies help. (Payout: $40)

6th: EZ 81 pts. Slipped a bit this year as he fell out of the money. Made a late charge but not enough; but at least he still has a lottery shot in this year’s draft.

7th: T-MAN 77 pts. Improvement over last year but too many ties. Some great young pieces that could challenge if it all comes together.

8th: VINNY 72 pts. Finished ahead of Erty by 19 player points. Good prospects need to arrive soon.

9th: ERTY 72 pts. Carbon copy of last year. Lots of kids coming up.

10th: GOJO 65 pts. Beat ORV by 36 player points. Still recovering from his 12-13 championship, but the rebuild shows flashes of brilliance.

11th: ORV 65 pts. This is what happens when your goalies get old, but it was an improvement over last years 52 pts.

12th: STIFLER 14 pts. Eichel or McDavid or ???

13th: JBR 13 pts. At worst, Eichel. or he trades it to Derko for 7 players, free contacts, and unlimited mushrooms at Tim Hortons.

Winners since the 2004-05 lock-out/strike season:

Year OFHL Winner Winning % Derko Cup Holder
2005-06 WENDY 0.760 Cordy
2006-07 T-MAN 0.760 Cordy
2007-08 CORDY 0.685 Derko
2008-09 HAUKSTER 0.731 Derko
2009-10 DERKO 0.760 GoJo
2010-11 T-MAN 0.736 GoJo
2011-12 CORDY 0.679 GoJo
2012-13 GOJO 0.714 Derko
2013-14 DERKO 0.722 Cordy

You’ll notice there have been a number of Champions since the lost season, but only 3 teams were worthy of holding Derko’s cup.

Fulty’s winning % of 79.7 is the highest since Cordy’s 0.827 in 2000-01 and Orv’s 0.810 in 2002-03.

DRAFT 2015

We need to decide on the draft order for round one. Will post after final order is decided.

POTW

Thankfully for Fulty, Jamie Benn had 10 points in his attempt to win the scoring race (which he did.)

Welcome to the NHL, kid.

Keegan Lowe played in his first career game Thursday for the Carolina Hurricanes against the Philadelphia Flyers and made a good first impression.  Lowe, the son of Edmonton Oilers president of hockey operations Kevin Lowe, fought veteran forward Vincent Lecavalier not once, but twice. The two dropped the gloves towards the end of the first period and it’s safe to say Lowe got the last laugh, or punch.

The two dropped the gloves again in the second period, this time with Lecavalier getting the better of the rookie.

When they heard, “Lecavalier hammers Lowe,” Oiler fans everywhere were hoping it was Kevin.

SATELLITE DEBRIS

LA Kings become fifth defending Stanley Cup champion in the expansion era (post-1966) to miss the playoffs the following season.

Of the NHL’s last 46 champions, only the 1967 Toronto Maple Leafs, 1969 Montreal Canadiens, 1995 New Jersey Devils and 2006 Carolina Hurricanes have missed the playoffs the year after winning the Cup.

Last year’s Conn Smythe award winner, LA Kings forward Justin Williams, attains double notoriety. He played for the Hurricanes in 2006-07, when they finished 11th in the Eastern Conference and missed the postseason by four points. Anze Kopitar sums up his feelings after losing to the Oilers.

1st Place- DERKO (104 points) wins his 2nd OFHL title, duplicating his 2009-2010 performance (does he only win in Olympic years?) and becomes the 3rd multiple winner of OFHL crowns, joining the company of T-Man (I know, hard to believe Sweatpant Woody has won twice) and Cordy (too many to list in this space here.)  DERKO looked destined for a repeat of last year’s 2nd place result and a re-grip on the cup that bears his name, but a resurgent 2nd half saw DERKO climb from 12 points back with7 weeks to go.  An end to the season that saw him go on a 23-5 run (82.1 winning percentage) was just what he needed to overcome a losing season series against Cordy (2-5).  He did it with strong forwards, d-men, and rook (McKinnon) and a shored-up goaltending position as a late trade with Orvy brought Ryan Miller in to stop the Musical Game of Thrones that was Derko’s goaltenders. Derko loses Miller this year, but if he can figure out that situation, the Napkin might have to put him in top spot next year.  (Payout: $180 & The OFHL Championship Trophy) 2005_0091 copy

2nd – CORDY (98 points) ended with most player points but had an epic collapse that only the Toronto Maple Leafs could understand.  A mediocre 8-9 Post-Olympic run hit hard and he couldn’t recover.  Late trades didn’t work in his favour.  Loses solid vets but cupboard isn’t bare, however, and he looks to be back to challenge next year. (Payout: $120 & The Derko Cup)

3rd – HAUKSTER (90 points)was in the mix early but never recovered from a mid-season stumble.  Loses a strong vet core; retains strong keepers. (Payout: $80 and doesn’t have to touch the Derko Cup)

4th – EZ (89 points) finished one point behind Haukster and had 3rd most player points.  Very consistent season – sat in 4th or 5th for most of the year. Solid tenders and D-Men going forward and doesn’t lose much in vet dept. (Payout: $40)

He's worked hard and now it's EZ money!

5th – Fulty (84 points) was in the mix early but had a few hiccups.  Good young crop will challenge for years to come.

6th – Erty (70 points) rode Franzen at vet all year. ’nuff said.

7th – T-Man (60 points) drove around with the OFHL Championship trophy in the trunk of his car for most of the year. Hostage situation was resolved with peaceful exchange in Heffley Creek pub parking lot.

8th – Vinny (56 points) managed to cling to the Vinny Table for one more year.

9th – Orv (52 points) can legitimately blame his season on injuries; mostly bad management, but injuries as well.

10th – GoJo (48 points) was last year’s champ.  He went for it.  He won it. The rebuild is on.

11th – Rolphy (41 points) What’s one more Unicorn tattoo?

#5 from West Fraser was a stats leader in several categories, none of which had anything to do with hockey.
