GWJHL2 Week 5!

Since the deadline would fall on a Saturday this week I'm extending it to Sunday the 27th at midnight. As noted in the Week 4 thread, Legion is on notice for having three of the first four games unplayed.

Boston @ San Jose
New Jersey @ Calgary
Los Angeles @ Carolina
Philadelphia @ Detroit
Vancouver @ Montreal

Looks like we get to play some hockey after all Reaper! My weekend is iffy until Sunday evening. Anytime next week should be ok though.

Oh hell. Legion, you playing this one?

Well the first week Legion and I tried on two seperate days but had networking problems both times, not his fault.

That being said, Demi! It''s on! I pretty much only have time this saturday and sunday during the day EST. before like 8ish. Monday or Tuesday nights might be free if we lose our playoff games, but I won''t know. Wednesday I leave for London for two weeks!

Hey Green, I can play tonight or tomorrow then I''m out of town until Wed night, leaving the next time we could play being Thursday. Sorry buddy! Hope we can hook up a game quickly, I thought we''d be on to this season a lot earlier (as did we all, I suppose) and my trip wouldn''t have disrupted anything.

""Imma gonna cut you so bad, you gonna... you gonna wish I no cut you so bad!""

Sunday evening sounds good, and if not, all next week is open for me! Woo!

Psycho! Can you and your collection of limp wristed granola eating leg warmer wearing NancyBoys play Sunday night or Monday night?

I''ll be out of town skiing all weekend pal. Looks like we''re gonna have to wait for your return on wednesday.

Perhaps we can, but I''ll warn you not to underestimate the power of the hippie hockey players.

With your record, I won''t. But that doesn''t mean I can''t make fun of their lifestyles!

I tried to play with both Mix and Certis, and neither time would it let me play. I connect with west coast players just fine, but it seems awfully touchy if I try to play with people across the country.

We can give it a stab, though.

Eek. Wanna fly over and LAN it? When you wanna give it a shot?

No worries. I probably won''t be able to play Wed, we get back in the evening -- but if I can, I will. Lets plan on Thu.

Sorry for the delay for everyone else. Hopefully there are a few other stragglers so I can''t be singled out for holding up a week.

Demi and I are on in about 50 min. LET''S GO FLYERS! Where''s my squid!?! Stevey Y is going down like someone''s mom!

That''s not entirely how it happened. In fact, it''s not even close.

3 - 2 Detroit in OT. It was an awfully tight game. I''ll let Mix give a better run down, but know this: Detroit is here, and they''re coming for you.

Yes. You.And possibily you in the back.

Great game, Mix. Hope we get to play again.

Great game Demi. He started with a fluke goal off a bed defense play. He put a slap shot on burke''s shoulder that went up, fell on his back and then burke backed it into the game. Then he went 2-0 with a really nice wrister from McCarty. He picked the puck up close to the red line and put in on the short side pipe as burke was dropping, slipped right in the whole. I thought I was a goner, but kept working and working. Finally I got a pass up to Sami Kapenen who put a beautiful snap shot right in CuJo''s 5 hole just above the stick as he was pushing out. it''s now 2-1 and time is winding down, the game is getting dirtier a meaner, but philadelphia keeps their cool and ties it up with 33 seconds left in the game. Sami with the cross ice one-timer pass to Roenick who snaps it in pass the goalie as he''s moving across to stop the shot, he had no chance on that one.
Sadly that one-timer could not break Demi''s heart. I was unable to score on about 2 minutes of 5 on 3, and then 9 minutes into the over time Robert Lang of the Wings snaps a shot to the far post from just outside the crease that beats the pad of the goalie and bounces in.

Aside from Demi''s first goal, I don''t feel too bad about this game, it was close and well played and could have gone either way I think. Hope to see you in playoffs!

Also, just to keep everyone informed and to prevent Certis from going postal on me, I''m leaving Wed at 830pm EST for London, Scotland and Paris for 12 days. I''ll be back Monday, April 4th. I humbly apologize to Mr. Green as I would never voluntarily pass up a chance to put the *&!@ing Habs in their place (that is, under my skates, crushed by the weight of a 230 lb. defensemen). But I may have to miss our game if Certis can''t wait til then.
I''ll miss you guys!

Bumpity bump-bump.

Psycho, some time tonite? When can you play?

Well, I managed to pull out a very hard fought win against the Sharks. Psycho and I exchanged goals a few minutes into the first and then stayed tied until his goalie got about 49% of a LaPointe slapshot from the upper end of the faceoff circle. I was surprised LaPointe even got it off. the unblocked 51% spun up and end over end and then went into the net as it fell. The Sharks outshot the Bruins (as usual) but not by as much as ColdForged Hurricanes did. Raycroft was my salvation again, as usual.

Great game Psycho. You''re always fun to play with. Hope to see you on the greens tomorrow night!

Hello? Legion?

*cough*

I talked to Legion and we decided to drop him from the league and put someone in who was a bit more interested in (and had time) to get their games played. Bagga was going to take his spot but guess what? Unlike Football, you cannot invite a new user to take on an abandoned team in Hockey. I''m afraid that means anyone who should have a game against Legion for the rest of the season will have a bye week. Sorry guys, I just assumed all ESPN games were created equal, apparently they''re not.

That''s messed up. Maybe you can do it through LIVE itself? Maybe you can email tech support and they can do it if you have a gamertag to give them?

All I know is that we didn''t have these kinds of problems when Coldie was running the league. Thats all I''m sayin''.

You''re such a rabble rouser.

What? We did that exact thing like 5 times last season. You must be doing something wrong, Usurper.

Damn, Grumpy said it was there right under [nouser] but it was lower than I thought. LOWER I SAY!

Bagga has been invited.

Jeez Certis, focus. FOCUS!

I was about to say, I took over the avalanche with 3 games left last season

Welcome Mister Bagga, I will own your sorry ass team in Week 10. Be waiting out on the playground for your beatdown! and sorry to see the Legion go!

Great, the man who scored a 99yard interception TD on me in football can screw me over in hockey too.

*shakes hockey stick at Bagga* You crushed my dreams!

Bagga will be nothing without Francis! NOTHING I say!

Welcome, BaggaSnotz!

Does that mean I''m playing baggaflab this week? If so, let''s get it on, sweetcheeks!

I hoped to play but I''ve got a lot on my plate right now, and the connection issues just ruined it the rest of the way. Hopefully next year''s hockey game (assuming one) won''t be so problematic for me.
