  1. If I took a leave of absence from my job I wouldn't get paid either. Maybe there's no provision in the CBA for a leave of absence so a suspension might be the only way to do it while avoiding the cap hit.
  2. Well that didn't go the way most of us planned. Congrats to @Ronaldoescobar for being the only one to correctly predict the outcome. Shout-out to @DS4quality for the heads-up to another player that Larkin wasn't playing. Classy move. Next up: The Sabres. It's a 4:00 PDT start, so get your predictions in early. Updated Leaderboard: Predict the winner, the score and the Game Winning Goal. (5pts for all three, 1pt each for individual predictions) As always, no predictions or edits after puck drop. No conditional predictions. And if you think I have made a mistake in your score, please DM me. My predictions: 5 - 2 Canucks Horvat with the GWG Good luck and Go Go!
  3. No worries, I never took it as criticism. It just sounded like a solid idea.
  4. It's the latter of the two, but it's an interesting idea. Until now I have just gone with nobody gets points for the GWG in the event of a shootout, and I do that because the NHL doesn't give credit to any specific player for the GWG. I figured it was the fair way to do it. And it is simpler for me that way. Besides, not many games go to the shootout (apparently 8%). In theory, I could make it an option to either declare the GWG scorer, or declare that it will go to a shootout. The one pitfall I can see with your idea is that in each thread, several people fail to declare who will score the GWG. So if it goes to a shootout, would they want the point for not predicting a GWG? I am always open to making this game even better. I'll give it some thought. Thanks for the suggestion.
  5. The game has started. No more predictions. No more edits.
  6. OK, I know it's early and the Philly game hasn't even started yet, but it's Friday and we have back-to-back games. EDIT > The Philly game is over and the Canucks have their first win of the season. So many people had their predictions ruined after OEL's late penalty and the subsequent PP goal, but that's the way it goes. Congrats to @EP Phone Home for being the only one to nail the final score. As with the Oilers game, no points awarded for a GWG as the game went to a shootout. Tomorrow comes quickly, so get your predictions in! EDIT > Here is the updated leaderboard. We're already up to 96 players on the board! Predict the winner, the score and the Game Winning Goal. (5pts for all three, 1pt each for individual predictions) Note - I likely won't score this game over the weekend. I prefer to do this when I am supposed to be working. Watch for the Buffalo thread Monday morning. Reminder: No predictions or edits after the game starts. No conditional predictions. And as always, if you think I have made a mistake in your score, please DM me. My predictions: Canucks win 5-3 Horvat with the GWG Good luck and Go Go!
  7. The NHL would be forced to hand out automatic 10 game suspensions to most of both teams. The only guys left would be the original players that were already on the ice.
  8. Sorry, I don't do conditional predictions. Unless you update this post before puck drop, I'll just go with your first prediction.
  9. I will try to find it, but I read somewhere that he won't play due to immigration paperwork. Edit > Found it.
  10. Where: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA When: Oct.15th, 2021 @ 4:00pm PDT TV: Sportsnet One Radio: SN650 / CFAX1070 I found highlights from the last time they played (or at least it feels like it was that long ago)...
  11. At this rate, it will be the Halifax Schooners after they join the league in the 2084 expansion.
  12. Thanks to everyone for the great response to the first game of the year! Congrats to @Puckster, @-Vintage Canuck-, @Junkyard Dog and @NucksCelts for being the first to correctly predict the final score this year. Next up: Canucks @ Zack MacEwen's new team Predict the winner, the score and the Game Winning Goal. (5pts for all three, 1pt each for individual predictions) Reminder: No predictions or edits after the game starts. As always, if you think I have made a mistake in your score, please DM me. Updated Leaderboard: My predictions: Canucks win 3-2 Horvat with the GWG Good luck and Go Go!
  13. Are you showing support, or making the same prediction?
  14. This isn't the "Predict The Canucks Win Or Else Contest". Even in their best ever season they still lost 19 games. Heck, even the mighty 1977-78 Canadiens lost 10 games. If you only predict wins you are limiting how many points you can be awarded in this game. It would be like going to Vegas and only betting red. If it is blind faith you are after, I suggest the GDT.
  15. There's no rule against hedging one's predictions by picking one team to win and another team to get the GWG. It will just make it impossible to net all 5 possible points.
  16. We are back! Welcome to the Predict The Score Contest. The game is simple. For each Canucks game I will post a thread. You predict the game winner, the final score of the game and who scores the game winning goal. I will keep a running tally of the points through the entire season. This will continue until the final game of the regular season, or until the Canucks are eliminated from the playoffs, or until the Canucks win the Stanley Cup, whichever comes last. No betting is allowed. Only bragging rights are on the line. The points will be a little different this year. If you get just the winning team correct, that's one point. New this year, if you get the final score correct, but the winning team wrong, that's one point. If you get both the winning team and the final score correct, that's three points. If you correctly predict the game winning goal scorer, that's one point. Note - As the NHL does not count shootout goals as game winning goals, neither do I. If you get everything correct, you get a bonus point for a total of 5 points. Points will increase after 28 games and 56 games. On occasion I will post bonus questions. These will generally be of the 50/50 variety so the odds of predicting it right are pretty good. These will be worth 2 points. All predictions MUST be posted before the drop of the puck or they will not be counted. Also, do not edit your post after the puck has been dropped, and only one prediction per game. If you accidentally post more than one prediction (it happens) I will only count the first one. I will post the leaderboard of everyone that has earned at least one point, in the following game's thread. In the event of an error (it happens every year), please fire me a DM. I keep very thorough records and am happy to correct any mistake I make. Banter about predictions is fine, but please keep game discussions to the applicable GDT. Congrats to previous winners: 2019-20 Covid interrupted season @FijianCanuck 2020 Covid Playoffs @Chickenspear 2020-21 season @FijianCanuck Let's get started. Game 1. Vancouver @ Edmonton. October 13th 2021. 7:00 pm PDT. Predict the winner, the score and the Game Winning Goal. (5pts for all three, 3 pts for final score and winner, 1pt for single correct predictions) Bonus question - Who scores the Canucks' first goal of the season? (2pts) My predictions: Edmonton wins 5-2 Draisaitl with the GWG Garland with the Canucks first goal Good luck, and Go Go!
  17. Except Demko. That guy is on the ice for 5-on-5, PP, PK, OT, even shootouts. It's like he never leaves the ice.
  18. While there are a few better players in terms of talent, Demko will be the most valuable.
