I have one with Habspatrol -- Leafs vs Oilers who finishes with more points.

So Far:
Leafs: 20 gms, 12-8-0, 24 points, 98 point pace
Oilers: 18 gms, 7-7-4, 18 points, 82 point pace





I think I have one with Jays -- J. Staal playing at 70+ point pace.

So Far:
J Staal: 17 gms, 15 pts (82 gms, 72 pts)



I think there are a few others i'm forgetting.

It definitely looks bad when paced out for 82 games. I prefer to look at it as the Leafs are at 24 points through 20 games and the Oilers are on pace to be at 20 points through 20 games. Makes me feel a little better.

You just overreacted. What you saw as a "long losing streak" was only really three regulation losses, two of them being one-goal games with empty netters.

You're making sucker bets that you have little chance of winning though. You should get at least odds with those bets.

If you said the Leafs would miss the playoffs this year or the Raps would finish in the bottom 10 of the NBA, you'd have a fighting chance. But you're just giving money away.

I "blame" it on you over estimating the quality of the teams chasing Toronto, while at the same time, under estimating Toronto. There's nothing about any of those teams that should make you look at them, look at Toronto and absolutely expect any of them other than maybe NYR, to be better than Toronto.

People seem to want to forget that it took injuries and shit goaltending to take this team from a similar position last season, to out of the playoffs. This year they've added forward depth (Kadri, JVR, Frattin, McClement), and are getting much better goaltending (healthy Reimer + huge upgrade at 1B/Backup), but people were expecting the same result as last year?

wishful ****ing thinking.

Would it be safe to say you guys are starting to panic? I already told you guys about a week ago that it was a problem, you came back with the fact it's just 2 games or so, no big deal. Still feel this way or think this team ain't built for playoffs now?

That's not what i meant though. It doesn't have much to do with how many you lost but with the style you played against..Notice how you scored 4 goals on the Pens(lost 6-4), beat Buffalo and Tampa Bay(both play more offensive style) but lost to teams who grind more and bring physical play(Washington, Jersey, Philadelphia)..Every single team in the playoff picture right now seems to have more of that..That's why i asked if you think you're built for playoff hockey.

I admitted that I'm now worried. I wasn't after 2 games.

Those games you bring up are games that came after the 2 games that didn't have me panicking. Imo it's not a matter of style or whether or not we are built for the playoffs. If the Habs play like they did for the first 40 games they can win in the playoffs. If they play like they have over the past 6 games they can't compete with anyone in the regular season or playoffs.

You make it seem like it's not important to have physical play, puck possession, shot blocking and so on. I hate these "well we didn't play our best" excuses..Who goes into games not giving their all? You also seem to forget that teams are much more relaxed and willing to take chances in the first 30 games or so...Once it gets closer to playoff hockey everyone starts to tighten up because points are that much more important. Keep thinking that you're losing because you're just playing bad and not because you don't have good enough players.

I think the Habs know they are a soft team.

Prust and Gallagher are good muckers, but that's about the extent of it. They don't grind down teams, they do a delicate dance around them.

I agree with this... I think you overstated a bit but its true that they aren't a very gritty team. They don't back down from physicality but they definitely lack in that department, especially without Emelin.

I think when they are on their game they can beat almost anyone with speed and "dancing" but they haven't shown that in a couple weeks now so I have my doubts.

IMO that's exactly what happened to us. We started getting beaten by teams with more muscle..We couldn't generate much and our goaltending let us down as well. We just weren't good enough. This year we upgraded in most areas but still not where we should be imo. I definitely wouldn't want to take on Washington right now. They'll be very tough to beat.

See to me this means you either don't know the meaning of the word "excuse" or you don't realize that teams go through slumps and don't play their best every game.

An excuse would be if I blamed injuries or refs or luck. I'm not blaming anything other than the team flat out playing shitty hockey.

We looked great against good teams for the first 40 games and shitty for the last 6. Washington and the Isles made the Leafs look bad last week. That doesn't mean that the Leafs became a shitty team that can't play against good teams for those couple games. They looked bad in those games but they're still a 25-15-5 team. To ignore those 25 wins and cherry pick a couple of those 15 loses as some sort of magic games with more significance is just some sort of misguided theory.

However... There is a reason for the Habs to be concerned. They are currently playing shitty hockey and they need to get it together for the playoffs or they will be screwed.

Anyone who believes a team can win a significant amount of games with "luck" may as well believe in voodoo and sorcery. Can a team be fortunate enough to run into a few goalies on off nights? Sure. But you don't keep a high shooting percentage over the course of 45 games with luck. The Leafs have a high shooting percentage because of the style they play and the fact that they have good shooters.

I think PKForce is espousing the Burke idea that you must build your team with the idea that in each playoff round you'll play teams with different styles of play. (physical teams, defensive teams, etc) The idea is that if you want to win the Cup you will play at least one really good physical team. I think talent is always the best indicator who will win, but over the course of 7 games, style matters quite a bit. So if any difference in play exists in the playoffs (ie more "tight" play) it is definitely the result of more specific/rigid styles of play because you are facing one specific opponent and you know their weaknesses.

So despite being a strong team overall for most of the season, I think some people still question if the Habs are missing that "physical" element to their game.

I think I agree with what you're saying.

There's not just one way to build a good/winning team. Lets assume a contender has 100 "points" to distribute between goaltending, speed, grittiness, defensive talent and offensive talent. It's not like you need to have 50 gritty points. As long as you have 100 "points" spread out you can make up for weaknesses in one category with strength in another category.

That's a little over simplified mind you.

Nice to have confidence.

Habs need to ****ing win one game more. Unbelievable how they've fallen apart. Last night's third period in NJ was typical playoff hockey where the refs put their whistles away and the Habs couldn't muster anything. It was sad. NJ went right into the trap. Interference could have been called many a time but they let it all go. Habs don't seem to be built for playoff hockey. Bergevin goes and extends Desharnais 4 years too. I just don't get it.

I'm trying to read between the lines here. Yay or nay on the avatar?

JaysCyYoung
06-25-2013, 06:09 PM
Very funny.

I honoured the spirit of the bet, I had it from the day the Leafs started play (May 1st) until the day that the post-season ended. A few hours in either direction really doesn't matter because that wasn't the point of the exercise.

The point was to draw attention to the fact that Montreal had a few extra points than the Leafs over the course of the regular-season and I was wrong in predicting the Leafs would finish ahead of them (I nonetheless maintain we would have over 82 games, but I digress).

Me changing it out of confidence towards Chicago's impending victory notwithstanding, I would have changed it back had Boston won last night's game. It was a symbolic gesture like the Hawks fan that got the 2013 added to the inside of his Stanley Cup tattoo showing the years the team had won it.

And it needs to be pointed out that I've kept lost bet avatars for significantly longer than required in the recent past. In fact, when I made the 2011 election bet and BeLeafer had one of his meltdowns and left, I kept the Layton avatar for three weeks longer the end date.

So yeah, blow me. :p

And kb needs to STFU because he's too much of a pussy to ever get involved in money bets.

Edit: but to prevent Habsy from sore feelings, I will put it back for three additional hours to cover the missing time during the game. I will take it back off at 9:02 pm.

Habsy
06-25-2013, 08:00 PM
Firstly, "spirit of the bet"? Is that like paying someone $19 on a $20 bet?

You did not pay off your bet. I don't give a rat's ass how you try to justify it with spirit this and confidence that.

You lost an avatar bet for pete sake, it's a wuss bet and you couldn't even man up and keep it the duration. What did you expect? Some lame little crap avatar like KB made HP use? No, if it isn't for money then the winner gets their money's worth out of the avatar.

You didn't even put back the full motion one so your taking it down at 9:02pm is not acceptable.

Goes to show there is no point in making a bet with you if you can't honor the simplest of bets.

"spirit"... "confidence"... cha, w/e.

Habsy
06-25-2013, 08:02 PM
I'll just tag you as a welcher for a little while. In the "spirit" of things, I have "confidence" you'll understand.

Like I said, I'll happily do the time that I missed (although I am pretty awesome for my predictive powers). I also get extra karmic points for my past agreements that I extended through no outside involvement.

But I'm not having it up for a ridiculous additional period of time for something you didn't even notice until Mr. Brown Noser brought it to your attention.

Habsy
06-25-2013, 08:18 PM
Now just admit you were wrong in taking the avatar down before the end of the playoffs. No excuses, no stipulations, no explanations... just wrong. It was what we agreed upon. You're the first Leaf fan to not fully pay up on a lost bet to me. Tsk tsk Jayz, reflects poorly on you.

JaysCyYoung
06-25-2013, 08:19 PM
I shouldn't have taken it down before the period ended, but I am happy that my confidence in Chicago had a corollary effect on them beating Boston.

Got to be confident.

Jumping in this late, but if you make a bet with a bookie, and come up short when you owe, they don't just ask for the amount you owe, they want that plus interest.

You are at their mercy if you don't live up to their terms, and it seems like Habsy was fairly merciful here.

But it was petty. Not just trying to sneak it off early, but also trying to dictate the terms of your punishment.
