Spofi Fantasy Hockey, Week Two. Lots of movement everywhere, except at the top. The Arrogant Champs retain their mighty perch. Penalties for unsportsmanlike conduct will be served inside...

I just barely (and with a lot of luck) took second place from Sammy's -- riding a 7 assist night and some good goalie performances today to jump eight spots. "Moving on up" award: Les colecos, who are riding high on Kovalchuk's shoulders "Wrong way" award: Aint No ice in GA, who just lost Turek for 2-4 weeks. "Who is that guy" award: Ferrets. Seriously, who is that?

Hey, I've got more than Kovalchuk going! My goalies are settling in nicely. I even missed a shutout by Martin Gerber that would have brought me near the top, I swear. Datsyuk is waking up. I've got great D. And I'm leading PIMs. Things are looking good.

Yawn. Same old, same old. :) At least I let Sammy have top spot for a couple of days. I'm sure that'll keep him interested for a while longer. Maybe mkn can have a shot too.

Damn you grum, you smug bastard. At least your Leafs suck so far this year.

and the overactive award goes to myself. i seriously need to chill on the waiver hunting. btw, who's in line for Mike York.

posted by garfield at 08:34 AM on October 23, 2003

I am. Probably others, too. You're going batshit with the pickups, bud. Give your guys some time.

posted by Samsonov14 at 08:41 AM on October 23, 2003

batshit, couldn't have said it better. it's just panic residue from draft neglect. it'll pass. i'm still shaking off the fanatasy cobwebs.

My inevitable fall to earth sure didn't take very long!

ok, vagabond and bonehacker and ferret, who are thee? if you're in the top half of standings, we bottom dwellers need names to run through the mud.

Mike York is mine!!! Step! Found my way out of the cellar this week (was 14th, now maintaining 5th). But nobody's performing particularly well for me. In that 5-2 pasting of the Leafs by the Isles, my two Islander players got me a total of one assist. Argh. But how sweet was the call on Lucky Luc? *bows* Unrelated: grum doth sucketh.

According to one source in the EPL pool the vagabonds team there belongs to catfish. I am so smart! S M R T! And my team sucks. grum sucks cause he is good, and I suck because I am mediocre. Though the Topes' leap of 8 spots is inspiring.

... which I might be able to accomplish if my guys only started throwing a few punches and not being on the ice when the other team scores.

posted by gspm at 10:18 AM on October 23, 2003

... and Hack the Bone is prob not JG since the yahoo profiles don't match what JG is using for the Yahoo NFL pick 'em. HtB isn't in that NFL pool and is a male. Next panelist....

Hey you fuckers - I just gave my 2 weeks notice. As a soon-to-be unemployed guy, I just wanted to warn you that I'm going to be posting about hockey every day. I'm going to be the new unemployed Governer of Hockey on Spofi. Woot!

But how sweet was the call on Lucky Luc? *bows* Not nearly as sweet as grum's Czerkawski pick-up. What the hell was he doing in Montreal the last two years? I'm really glad I managed to pick up MA Fleury when he became available, cause with the Pens' defense, he's going to help a lot in the SHOTS department. And the way he's been playing so far, maybe he'll help with the Ws and GAAs. And those are, really, the only things keeping me from number one right now!

Down seven spots. What am I, a Hanson song?

DAMMIT! Can't believe I missed this - my team would have been the Angry Samoans and I would be in first place and... I have no business being here. Was it a straight up draft? Who got Kovalchuk - damn that kid is flying. I'm really surprised Sammy had a job. *bitch-slap*

posted by WeedyMcSmokey at 11:56 AM on October 24, 2003

Boing! The draft was live, but most of us weren't able to participate. People like myself who had to set up the autodraft rankings really didn't really start with a disadvantage, though. Qbert has Kovalchuk, and he's now in 3rd behind that bastard grum and myself.

posted by Samsonov14 at 12:08 PM on October 24, 2003

my team would have been the Angry Samoans "lights out! poke, poke, poke your eyes out!" You have been very welcome Weedy. Sorry you missed it, we didn't get a sidebar mention. *Looks sheepishly at Pantheon* Can you believe that I picked Kovalchuk in the 8th round of a 16-team league?

Hey you fuckers - I just gave my 2 weeks notice. ... Forcing me to get sloppy drunk and slack off at work. Now, forcing me to be at work on a Saturday. - The previously unemployed guy. Weedy, I missed out too. It sucks to come in here and watch these fools knowing you'd be killing them in this league if you'd have been on the ball a month ago. Stupid job.

I set my team for last week and totally forgot to check everything. Look at me now!
