WEEK 1 UPDATE:
Straight into the lead is our defending champion from last year - predator007! Check out last week's scoreboard here.
So far so bad. The suffering is on in earnest. Terry Pegula might not know his team, but you however can show off your knowledge of the Buffalo Sabres right here. Test your knowledge of the game and the teams that play it on Pick n' Mix , right here on Die By The Blade. The fantasy hockey game that doesn't need cheat sheets, stats, pencils, or late night drafts. All you have to do is pick what you think your favorite team the Buffalo Sabres are going to do in any given week.
Here's the Sabres' schedule for this week.
10/23 - Buffalo Sabres vs Boston Bruins (Uh Oh)
10/25 - Buffalo Sabres @ Florida Panthers (Worst Team Bowl)
10/26 - Buffalo Sabres @ Tampa Bay Lightning (Slightly Better Team Bowl)
10/28 - Buffalo Sabres vs Dallas Stars (Return of the Ruff)
We will need you to come up with the following picks -
1) winning team [W] (including a shootout winner) = H or V
2) goals [G] over/under in each game (O/U of 5.5 goals) = O or U
3) powerplay goals [PPG] over/under in each game (O/U of 1.5 goals) = O or U
4) penalty minutes [PIM] over/under in each game (O/U of 25 PIM) = O or U
5) scorer of the game-winning goal [GWG] (including a shootout winner)
Scoring is simple, one point for each correct answer, a max of five per game. You can submit your answers in the comments section of this post, in the form of (for example) -
V O O O Chara
H U O O Campbell
H O O U St. Louis
V U O O Nichushkin
It's that easy! The game will close before puckdrop of the first game of the week, so we'll need all your week's picks in before that. If you miss the first game, you have until the second game of the week to play for that week. This will be season-long, so make sure you don't miss any weeks!
Good luck, and Go Sabres!
