Hey there everyone! Hope everyone enjoyed their first full week hockey! Even you jersey throwing Oilers and Leafs fans. There has been quite a bit to be entertained by this past week and a half. Especially for those who play fantasy hockey.
I only managed to get in one league this year, which is fine. Hopefully it's a lot easier for me to just keep track of the one team and guide them to a championship. Funny story about my team actually... So my buddy who started the league told me when the draft was, as least 10 times, and I kept saying I wouldn't forget. Well I did, and logged into the draft lobby an hour after the draft started. My AutoDraft managed to pick up Alexander Ovechkin, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, the Red-Hot Rick Nash, and the also Red-Hot and now injured Victor Hedman. How that happened I'll never understand. So far my "Hot Dads" are 2-0 and things are lookin' up for me....
Speaking of lookin' up.....um.... Mallards can fly and sometimes you see them when you look up... I don't know... That was a bad segue, but don't forget, the deadline for the Mallards competition is about a week and a half away so if you plan on joining and haven't sent anything in yet you still have some time.
Don't forget to send in some votes this week as well. Not only do we have our usual COTW, but a vote to determine the third entry into the COTY vote. So get on all of that!
3rd Quarter Vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
COTW Oct 13-19 vote (ends Friday @ 11:59pm Eastern)
Quad City Mallards Jersey Competition (ends October 31st)
And now concepts!!!
Michigan State Spartans (NCAA) Concept - Kevin B.
Florida Panthers (Brights Series) Concept - Colin M.
Toronto Maple Leafs Concept - Alan H.
I feel like making Leafs jerseys look like old Boston jerseys is a bad idea. Granted, it doesn't look bad, especially with the silver, but the Leafs have tried silver on a jersey (As trim color) and I think they're pretty much over it. I feel like thebest way to reintroduce silver to the Leafs is using a small amount as trim color on an alternate jersey...
Speaking of a Leafs alternate jersey.... Alan has one for us.
