As you may or may not know. Otto took over my team because I was sleepy. He did a pretty good job imo.

However he also attended the annual NFL pool I have been involved in the last 10 years+ and drafted my team. I thought he did an extremely good job but Yahoo gave us a draft ranking of D+ (last in our 16 team league).

Well after 4 weeks we are 4-0.

Maybe I should get Otto to start playing more.

2 important announcements, both relevant to the Vegas thread.

1. I've just booked my next Vegas trip. July 13-17th. Taking my brother in Law for his first Vegas trip (He's 23). Any suggestions on what we should do to make his first trip memorable? I've been so many times now I forget what it was like my first time.

Will also be attending the World Series of Darts PDC event final day on July 15th and I'm really pumped about that.

2. Wife and I are expecting our second child (another boy) at the end of September. I think this is the thread where all baby announcements are made if I remember correctly.

never underestimate smart people's ability to overreact to small sample sizes with goalies. Lundqvist is definitely not the backup.

Good luck this round everyone!

Great write ups Ort.... yes, seven games of stressful decisions! I knew if I played John I would always have the choice of matching goalies with him most games. Game 1 and here I am with a choice of my #1 in Price PLAYING my #2 King Henrik... who just so happens to be his goalies tonight. Arrrggggg..... seven games of this!

As much as it still stings that Im out, Im kind of excited about this 2nd round of the AHL, not going to walk away and sulk. I like that each matchup has a cool personal/FCP flavour to it, it would have been even more interesting if we had Chris in there too over shoot loose. (with all due respect to that team)

This is how I see round 2, less so Ortenzio's real analysis, more so my "im bored and felt like talking AHL hockey" viewpoint:
Gothic vs Shoot Loose: This is the equivalent of getting my 3 year old nephew to play one on one basketball against his 6ft 8" godfather who played University Ball. There will be some pleasantries, and smiles, but over fairly quick. Globetrotters dont lose to the Generals, it just doesnt happen.

Magic vs Mustangs: This is the All-Troll Matchup, guys you love to hate. You love them, then you hate them, then you....well, lets hope love them. Interesting part will be if Stamkos comes back, but more interesting will be if the clear better team wins. Wait, which one is the better team? The one who won a division, or the one who outscored the team 148-114? 'Stangs are gonna win, just because lets face it, the whole world wants a Gothic vs Stangs semifinal, and the fix is in.

Swackers vs Broadway: If the other one is the guys you love to hate, this is the guys you love to love series. Everyone, and I mean, everyone, wants both these guys to win. Pretty sure Daniel picked these two teams as the ones he wants to win it all, and then to also win the World Series and get Noble Prizes. Picking a winner here is like Pizza or Sex, which one do you want? WHY CANT I HAVE BOTH?!?! Im gonna go Swackers, because, well, Guinness!

PK Dealers vs Big M's: Ever wake up in the morning, and think, yay, its Sunday!!!!....until you realize that its actually Monday?!?! This is how I feel every time someone comes close to beating Bob, and then you see later on that he won anyway. Its always fcking Monday around here. So, please please please....give me Sunday AHL hockey gods. If john vs dave is the guys you love, this is the "lets face it, we're all rooting for PK' Series. just the way bob likes it. damn. Come on Ortenzio, work that magic!

The predictions are in no way meant to insult or offend anyone. They are purely for entertainment value.

Eddie Shack Conference

#1 vs #6

Canadian Gothic (47-25-5) +/- 205.5 vs
Shootloose (38-36-2) +/- 134.0

Injuries

Canadian Gothic
Erik Gudbranson Van indefinitely

Shootloose-
Mattias Janmark DAL indefinitely


Presidents trophy winner Canadian Gothic must be itching to get back in playoff action this year. After 3 straight years of coming out of the Eddie Shack Conference, he was sent packing in the first round by AHL 3 time champion Cheap Thieves. On paper Gothic has the best lineup in AHL. Shootloose knocked off defending Champion Steelheads in a close 7 game series. As always Gothic team owner Dale M. has all goalies covered, while Shootloose has an empty game #6. Injuries will not play a factor. Shootloose will be hard pressed to win 2 games let alone 4. Prediction Gothics in 5.

#4 vs #5

Magic Delicious (47-28-2) 118.0 vs
Mustangs (40-30-6) +/-148.5

Injuries

Magically Delicious
Steven Stamkos TB indefinitely

Mustangs-
Benoit Pouliot EDM Day to day


A clash of 2 rivals (I guess everyone is a Mustangs rival) will once again pit a very strong forward lineup team(Magic) vs a very strong defence lineup team(Mustangs). Serge B. has ridden team beast Brett Burns right to the second round and hopes to continue to conference finals. Team Magic owner Dan as always managed to make some key trades to compensate for huge lose of Steve Stamkos. Only one empty goalie night for game 6 Mustangs. Another very close series I think. With Stamkos, nod goes to Magic, however without him Mustangs prevail. Prediction Mustangs in 7.


Tiger Williams Conference

#1 vs #6


Big M's (48-27-2) +/- 205 vs
Pkdealers (40-37-5) +/- 156.0

Injuries

Big M's
Connor Carrick Tor day to day


Pkdealers
Tyler Myers WPJ gone season
Shane Prince NYI Day to day
Kris Letang Pitt day to day
Trevor Daley Pitt April


Another #1 seed who is itching to get back in playoff action (get swept in finals for 3rd year in a row?). Once again team owner Bob M has the Big M's ready to go. A strong offence/defence/goaltending lineup, and oh by the way farm help will make the Big M's favourite to repeat as Conference winners. PkDealers were able to upset the favourite Whalers, but will need to do even better to continue on. Injured top defenceman Kris Letang needs to return if they have any chance against the Big M's. Even with Klingburg and Krug playing few games in this series, midnight will strike on the Pkdealers. Prediction Big M's in 6 games



#2 vs #5


Swackers (46-31-1) +/-149.5 vs
Broadway (44-37-1) +/- 144.5 vs


Injuries
Swackers
Johan Larsson Buff out season


Broadway
Bryan Rust PIT day to day
Joonas Donskoi SJS day to day
Dylan DeMelo SJS mid march
Anton Rodin VAN day to day

Look out for team Swacker. Team owner Dave R. has his team primed for his first playoff appearance in a few years. His players (Forsberg) did not recive the memo that Swacker won a first round bye and to take it easy the last week. Hopefully he did not use up all his scoring in a non-playing round. Team owner John pulled out a victory over Shortstackers, and now hopes to avenge division title lose. Injuries don't play a big factor and only Broadway has an empty goalie night. Both teams share 2 goalie sets, and I think this will come down to better farm players. Another close series, but team Ireland looks to advance to conference finals. Prediction Swackers in 7 games


Round 1 predictions record 4-4(I suck)

Even Daniels "wish" list was a better prediction 6-2 record.

Good Luck to all teams.

ZOMG EVERYTHING TRUMP DOES IS LIKE TEH WORST!!!

Bourdain is the biggest faggot on planet earth and whenever his backlash comes, it cannot be soon enough. A typical pretentious New York City dbag who lives life LARP'ing as anti-pretentious, even though standard pretension oozes from everything he does in pursuit of 'authenticity'.

He's a proto-hipster extraordinaire and while I enjoy his show, cannot stand the man nor do I value anything he says. He would actually be easy to exploit. His 'buttons' are large and obvious if you're in tune to that sort of thing.

If you are not a fan of statistical probabilities for line-ups, you can stop reading now and go to next post.

Projected scores for current lineups of opening AHL playoff game #1

Steelheads (forwards 2.713, defense 1.239, goalie -1.225)
2.727
Shootloose (forwards 2.445, defense 1.285, goalie -1.270
2.460


Red Ravens (forwards 4.032, defense 0.884, goalie -1.130)
3.786
Mustangs (forwards 2.846, defense 0.446, goalie -2.500)
0.792

Shortstacker (forwards 2.590, defense 1.419, goalie -1.345)
2.664
Broadway (forwards 2.230, defense 0.815, goalie -1.240)
1.805

Whalers (forwards 3.016, defense 1.109, goalie -1.250)
2.875
Pkdealers (forwards 2.702, defense 1.426, goalie -1.345)
2.783

I'm sure tonight's results will be nothing like projected.
