Wow, that loaded big....

 

Wish I could say the same for this one:

 

Image result for funny hockey pictures

 

 

OK, now that that's done, some pre-contest business.

 

 

Here's the PRIZE!!!!!

This lovely Canes hat! Now you can get one without going to the game, or get 2 if you do go.

Think of this. Even when you go to the game, you get this hat, but when Aho scores a hat trick you throw it on the ice.

But now you still get one!

 

 

 

Also, this contest came pre-loaded with one point to be awarded for best question. This was to be decided on by the mod and admin types, who basically told me to pick, and so, without further adieu, the one point is awarded to........

 

RyazanCaniac!!!!

Just a point of clarification, and in case you are interested - the Fireman's Helmet has been retired so nobody can win that.  You now have to carry water (the belt) and/or chop wood (an axe).  Stalberg won both of those in our ONLY win. 

 

If you pick  "it won't be awarded" you will be right.

Thanks Coastal. I changed it up. For those who have already picked, your pick for the Fireman's hat can still stand.

 

No points for that one if we lose.

Hey rem, for #13 do shoot out goals count?  If you're looking for input my vote would be "no", but either way seems like it would be best to specify before the game.

 

Also,

12. Who will post the lowest +/- ? (every player gets a plus or minus or even for the game, who will be most negative).*

* #12 further clarification: which Cane will be on the ice the most times when the opponent scores 5/5 goals.

 

I know you're looking for the worst +/-.  But the clarification seems to rule out a Cane getting a "+1" if he's on ice for an ES Canes goal.  Is it per the regular definition of +/- or per the way you wrote the clarification?

On total jersey number for goals, OT goal counts, but shoot out goals don't count, as they don't in the game.

 

I will try again on the plus minus. Each game there is a list of every player who for that game had a net plus-minus of a number. I believe that number is the total of all goals for that they were on the ice for, minus the number of opponent goals that they were on the ice for. It is said, Eric Staal was a plus 2 tonight, meaning he was on the ice for a net of two goals for. Could have been one against and three for, could have been 2 against and 4 for.

 

I am asking for which player, who by skill or luck seems to be on the ice for the worst of it.

 

This will likely be more than one player, since in a given game there are usually a bunch at each level. ie 3 guys plus 2, 5 guys plus 1, 4 guys even, 2 guys minus 1, etc. Whatever player or players occupy the bottom of the plus minus list (bad) for this game, would win you that point. It could be that we have a huge blow out win, and the worst on the team is a few guys at zero (even). Then, if you picked one of them, you get the point.

 

If uncertainty remains, just pick the guy you think will be overall least effective for the team on the combination of offense minus defense. If that doesn't work pick a guy who rarely scores. If that doesn't work, pick a name!!!

 

(I'm not picking on you Lake, there has been confusion on this question, so I must have phrased it badly, but don't want to change it).

 Not taken that way at all, rem. For the record, the original question wasn't at all confusing to me.  It was the phrasing of the clarification that brought some doubt into my mind.  The way it was worded it seemed to exclude the "pluses" a player gets for being on the ice when the Canes score.  But it's all clear now.  :)

This contest will remain open until game time since I am going to the game, and will not play (so I will not post picks ahead of time).

 

We have less players than the opening road game contest, so you really have a great chance to win this one!!!!!

Dream no more Ryazan!!! Now we have to figure out postage!

 

YES, we have a WINNER.

 

RyazanCaniac!!!  :applaud::clapper::applause::woohoo:

 

 

He didn't need the bonus point either.

 

He got all three stars of the game right, and won the attendance bonus points too.

 

Thanks to all that played. And the team won too!

 

runner up: Hag!

 

 

Now we just need to get one of those hats that got thrown onto the ice in the fake-out hat trick, and send it to Ryazan.

Congrats Ryazan!

 

Side note, since it wasn't a real hat trick, what are the canes going to do with all those hats thrown on the ice?

Thanks! Btw, what do they usually do with them when a real hat trick happens?

So who did get the check of the game?  The belt/ax? (I'd guess it had to be Skinner)  And the announced attendance? Is it even possible to find that on the Canes website anymore? I think the rest of the answers can be found in the box score.

They have a good start for another hat giveaway.

Congrats Ryazan!  Looks like you've now got a Canes hat collection! 

Thanks! I do have a small one. Total of 5. But one of them is by Bud, I wear only at the beach when playing volleyball. And this giveaway hat looks pretty awesome. By the way, is the 2006 championship hat made by New Era?

Seems like it wasn't featured on the broadcast.
