I love getting stopped on the street to be told by someone that they are beating me in the HNIC hockey pool. Thanks. You and about 30,000 people are beating me.
I went to the darn Capitals, once, twice or 15 weeks too many. Every time I pick a player he gets hurt or gets concussion-like symptoms. Please, next time you see me and want to talk about my hockey pool picks, you better have an extra beer in your hand!
I'm going completely outside my successful picking methods and going a different route this week. Hello, New Jersey! Four games this week, albeit some tough ones.
Who would really pick any players from the 15th-ranked team in the NHL's Eastern Conference? Cole, Desharnais and Pacioretty have been great all year. When's the last time the Habs had two 30-goal scorers in one year and missed the playoffs? They haven't been great as a team but the play of these three has been great.
I also heard this kid Crosby is OK. I'll add him just for giggles. Going to take some maneuvering but am going to keep him and Malkin. Actually, cancel everything. I'm going heavy guns a blazing with Pittsburgh. Malkin, 87, Letang. Next week it might be all Pittsburgh.
Where I'm at. FWDS are:
Malkin, Crosby, Cole, Pacioretty, Desharnais, Kovalchuk,
Weber,Letang, Zidlicky, Pietrangelo
GIVE ME THE WEEKLY PRIZE NOW...HAVE A GOOD WEEK AND DON'T FORGET THE BEER!
