New, comments

Everything changes yet nothing changes. Theme of this season.

Welcome to Buffalo Matt D'Agostini.

As promised, we've had even more changes with the kids being sent down, Luke Adam being given another shot, Patrick Kaleta done for the season and Matt D'Agostini the latest player to board the train to nowhere. Whatever it is, Die By The Blade is still here and so is Pick n' Mix. 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 Sabres are going to do in any given week.

Apologies in advance for not having updated the spreadsheet yet, will get to it pronto!

Here's the Sabres' upcoming schedule -

12/5 - Buffalo Sabres vs New York Rangers (The Rags have double our points total. Double.)
12/7 - Buffalo Sabres @ Montreal Canadiens (In Montreal. We're in trouble.)
12/10 - Buffalo Sabres vs Ottawa Senators (Once these guys were terrible too.)
12/12 - Buffalo Sabres @ Ottawa Senators (Then they got good. Hopefully we can too.)
12/14 - Buffalo Sabres vs Calgary Flames (Will they ever get good? Better than the Oilers?)

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 McDonagh
H U O O Eller
H O U O Ehrhoff
H O O O Spezza
H U U U Moulson

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! Good luck, and Go Sabres!
