O-kayyyy!!

The TMLfans Pick’em Challenge returns for yet another season! 

Are you ready for some fun & games?!  I sure am.

Last year’s overall leaderboard winner was WAYNEINIONA.  Think he can repeat?  Hmm.  Remains to be seen.  Anyone up for the Challenge? 

Oops. Almost forgot.  Should anyone who wishes to participate be unfamiliar with the rules, they are here:

http://www.tmlfans.ca/community/index.php?topic=4680.0

SAMPLE ONLY
This game is pretty basic and easy to understand, you get a list of 6 games that are happening on the weekend (Sat-Sun, Fri games are thrown in sometimes too). You then select which teams you think will win and assign a point value to each team, 6 points to the team you are most confident will win, 5 points to the next team you are more confident and so on, you can only use each point value once (6,5,4,3,2,1).

Here is an example:

Leafs 6       -     Sept 24th - Leafs @ Sabres              19:00 EST
Sens 1        -     Sept 24th - Sens @ Habs                19:00 EST
Panthers 4  -     Sept 24th - Lightning @ Panthers     19:30 EST
Oilers 5      -     Sept 24th - Flames @ Oilers             20:00 EST
Jets 3        -     Sept 24th - Jets @ Predators            20:30 EST
Ducks 2     -     Sept 24th - Ducks @ Canucks          22:00 EST
Picks are due before the earliest game starts, so in this example you have to pick before the Leafs/Sabres and Sens/Habs game. No changing of picks once the earliest game has started. Any poster submitting their picks after the earliest game starts, won't have their picks tallied for that week and any poster modifying their submission after the earliest game starts, will have all their picks for that week not count.

Please note:  Most of the games will be posted by each winner for mostly Saturday games (for tradition’s sake).  However, let’s say should the Maple Leafs be playing the next day, it’s fine to post for both days.


                                                 - - - - - - - - - - -


Here are the games.  Deadline is 7pm Saturday.  All times Eastern.
Good luck everyone.


Sat. October 5th

Montréal @ Toronto             7pm
New Jersey @ Buffalo          7pm
Tampa Bay @ Florida           7pm
Dallas @ St.Louis                8pm
