They can also be called "screws".  That's all I'll say about that! :)

 

I'll try to remember to participate.  I've been a deadbeat in these games in the past.  Who knows, maybe I'll get lucky.

At the expense of seeming (obviously) uneducated, how does one "PM" the answers to you Rem?

 

Click on his name  in the post; it will take you to his profile. There should be a button there that's labeled "message". Click the "message" button and a message box will open with "remkiin" in the To: box. Type your message there and click the "Send" button.

So if anyone answers the goal percentage question with a 0.XXX value, they will get it wrong because that is not a percentage (unless the goalies stop trying), correct? Correct format would be XX.X%...

Coastal,

 

I'm running to work, but we have to make an exception for the guy who started such a good GDT.

 

Just post you picks on here.

Interesting approach by Manwolf - the questions about goals and assists didn't specify Hurricanes players only, so the answers are legit and probably a lot better than mine.

 

Edit: Is it just me, or did the wording of the questions change at some point? Manwolf's mention of Jets players comes before (but not immediately before) the change from "name two players who will score..." to "name two Canes players who will score..."

Wow someone pick Cam to fight? He hasn't fought since the AHL when he had that one with Leighton.

 

The "Ha!" after Ward gives away that it was tongue in cheek, but I like it!

 

What did surprise me is how many picked PDG.  He said he's had 1 fight in his career, and it was completely initiated by the other guy, but he was picked most (4, tied with Hainsey).  I wonder if that's more due to a "most recent incident" bias or if people are thinking that he'll be especially physical trying to make the team?  I forgot about Bickell, I could easily see him initiating something as he tries to establish a role as a veteran presence.

You can tell it changed because you can see the original set of questions in the "cut and paste" most people used to supply their answers.  Hat's off to Manwolf for creative thinking!

I will allow it Manwolf.

 

Top had made the point so I clarified it.

 

Allow which? Manwolf's pick of Jets players as per the original questions or his change to Canes players only?

His switch.

 

This was intended to be Canes only. I should have been clearer. I think Manwolf was the only one.

 

All Canes.

 

Heck my plan is no goals for the Peg.

I'm not as optimistic as Rem, as you likely already know.

 

When I saw name 2 other players to score goals I immediately thought he couldn't mean Canes by expecting 3 goals :)

 

Glad I'm aligned with the group for this epic contest!

We have a winner! It came down to the tiebreaker.

 

Xray and Lake Livin each scored 8 total points. So we go to the tiebreaker, and just 2 shots on goal is the difference, and......the win goes to......

 

LAKE LIVIN!! :applaud::yippee::clapper::ohyeah:.

 

Honorable mentions:

Xray, obviously, so close! But also got the jump ball on the save percentage. (unfortunately in that the low guess won).

JonKerfoot (7 points)

Burgessmat (7 points)

 

RNT82, JonKerfoot, and Manwolf got the shots on goal exactly right.

 

Thank you all for playing!!! Great response!
