Trogdor isn’t dead! So they made me do today’s write up…
Flyers moved on defeating Boston in game 7. Habs pulled a similar trick on the Pens, and the Hawks reinforced that the giant C on the Vancouver jerseys stands for CHOKE!!! Round 3 kicked off with the Flyers making the Habs look like the Hab nots with a 6-0 drubbing, chasing Halak from the net and then everyone’s favorite Canuck killer Dustin Byfuglien scored late in the 3rd to give the Hawks a 1-0 series lead over the Sharks.
Round 3 Predictions
Looks like MetalOil did the best on last rounds predictions and as before, if you have some thoughts, post them below. Here’s what the magic 8-Ball influenced picks of the POTF staffers look like for round 3.
|Semi Finals Predictions|
|Flyers vs Habs||Flyers in 6||Flyers in 5||Flyers in 5|
|Sharks vs Hawks||Hawks in 6||Hawks in 7||Hawks in 6|
Canada absolutely punished Norway 12-1, with our very own Eberle scoring 1 and setting up 3 others. That was after an unexpected loss to the Swiss, and the last two games have been less than glorious, losing 3-1 to Sweden then 3-2 to the Czech Republic.
MPS has 1 goal so far in their matchup against the Swiss today.
Team USA is DOMINATING!!! The relegation round…
How our Oilers are doing:
|* game currently in progress|
Excluded Dubnyk, because he hasn’t played yet, for one.
Dawgtoy’s success continues and they now sit atop the POTF pool. I’m clinging to 12th and failed to make 3rd/4th round picks so I’m done. Steve-O as moved up to 3rd and Racki is 17th. Looks like I wasn’t the only one not get picks in so a few of us can silently sob together.
- Oilers are currently on the hunt for an assistant GM so get your resumes updated and submitted. Current front runner is Scott Bonner, the GM for Vancouver Giants and an Edmontonian.
- Johnny Boychuck is a UFA this July 1st… A hard hitting D-Man from Edmonton, currently making .5 million. Might be a good fit, so we won’t pursue him.
UPDATED 3:02PM: Name That Team…
The Oilers’ AHL affiliate Oklahoma receives a name tomorrow, according to the Oklahoma City TV station KSBI. Rumored names are the Barons, the Bison, the Twisters and more recently the Roughnecks (credit to Copper N Blue for those, as they’ve been monitoring the US Patent database).
