Game Predictions – 10/24/2006

Well, last night was a good night on the game prediction night as the algorithm went 6 for 6. That brings the algorithms over record to a nice 17-9. Just 3 games on schedule tonight but two of which should be qutie interesting. First there is the battle of Ontario game as the Senators try to get revenge for a 6-0 Leafs trashing a couple weeks ago. The second interesting…

Game Predictions – 23/10/2006

A couple of interesting games today. First, Montreal will try to show that their big win over Colorado on Saturday is no fluke when they take on the top team in the NHL, also known as the Buffalo Sabres. Another interesting game is the Dallas-Vancouver game. This is another big test for the Canucks who have gotten off to a fairly good start but have not made it easy on…

Game Predictions – 10/20/2006

Before I say anything else about these predictions let me first say that you should still take these with a grain of salt or two. It is still very early in the season and since these predictions take into account a teams record and the records of the teams they have played and most teams have only played ~6 games there isn’t a lot of track record to go by….

Game Prediction Pool

It’s time for some game predicting fun. I had hoped to get this up and running by the start of the season last week but better a little late than never.

My Beef with Paul Maurice

I have one major complaint with what I have seen from coach Paul Maurice this year. I don’t understand why he has Wellwood playing on Sundin’s wing. I really like Wellwood and he has oodles of skill but he is a puck posession and puck distribution guy much like Sundin. Both Sundin and Wellwood are guy you want to lead the rush. They aren’t a great fit for each other…

The Mogilny Decision…

As I was driving home tonight I was listening to the Team 1200 sports radio station here in Ottawa and apparently there is some outrage and misunderstanding about the Mogilny decision today. The announcers were talking about how there are probably 29 other teams who are upset at this decision. Let me say that this is probably not the case and the reason is simple. The over age 35 and…
