The Goose’s League Revisited

by Ryan

I wasn’t sure what to expect when we started a fantasy hockey league back in October. Then again, I wasn’t sure what to expect from the Sabres back in October as well. I suppose the expectations for each were the same: good turnout, a good team, and a spot in the playoffs. Well, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that we went 2/3 in both leagues. The bad news is the “playoffs” part is the o-fer.

Here are the regular season standings:

*1. Concussion Junction 134-74-45 .619 313
*2. standing room only 133-80-40 .605 306

*Denotes playoff birth

So what happened? Well, Jon hates fantasy hockey and didn’t play, and Chris and Rich didn’t keep up with their lineups. So what’s my excuse? Well, I drafted pretty badly and got off to a terrible start, sitting in 14th for a good part of the fall. I got better, but no one really gives a crap about that I sucked.

The playoffs start this week, with the top two seeds getting a first round bye. When it’s all over we’ll let you know who won. I’m already scouting for next year.
