Happy 'I bought The Hockey News Ultimate Fantasy Pool Guide Again and I Don't Know Why Because It Sucks' Day!

Forecaster was available where I went. I'm strongly considering not biting the Hockey News bullet this year, since I usually only buy THN because no other pool guides are out this early.

lol, so will I, I know it.
I was going to try to add that to my post, but I didnt know how to say without sounding absolutely insane. I know THN sucks, I know its probably the worst one, but I use it, I like it, and I will buy it. I just skipped out on the initial purchase, but I know Ill be back. lol

Some of you that love the Serge jinx, here is something to chew on.

I have never selected or had the pleasure( or displeasure) of having the great Sidney Crosby in any sort of hockey pool..This year I took him in a weekly head to head pool that I am in with Arp. Well up until this last couple of weeks I have been cursing him..

I am glad he is finally back and scoring in bunches..

Looking for advice.

Do or die game in my other league playoffs.

We both have La goalies( which my opponent is using)

I also have Chicago at Home to Carolina.

Do I roll with LA and keep the variance low , or use Chicago?

I donít have fancy stats to predict score but The lineups are probably fairly even.

Both have only 4 assists in 10 games, but Faulk has been hotter lately. FAULK

The O/U in the CAR/CHI game is 5.5 and in the NYI/EDM game it's 6.5. LEDDY

I have Leddy in my lineup tonight. FAULK

His lineup looks better. CHI might be a better option.

LA is the better play overall, I think. One of the best in the league. Bigger fave over Washington with higher odds at under 5.5.

I think Iíd need my forwards to be a pretty massive dog to go for variance with goalies. Not sure thatís the case here, though I didnít tally it up. Iíd need at least a goal difference, probably closer to 2. Doubt we have that.

Is that a 20 team league? How did you guys end up with so many star forwards, is there a cap in the league?

Sorry if this is late, but I think I would go with LA too. Tough call, but Chi has been volatile, and maybe Carolina wakes up after the GM shuffle.
I guess go with LA since at home, but really tough call, since Wash could score a bunch too.
Congrats on at least having good choices.
