Two weeks to the End! Well, The Great Whites are holding on to 1st. The rest is up in the air...
Only the dreams and the quantum entanglement of this matrix will reveal the true results.

Week 24 Stat as of Saturday Night - Great Whites Extend Lead, Ramapithicines Lead Knights Late In Challenge Cup Semi
With 6 games on the NHL schedule for Sunday there is still time for the Knights Templar to make up the 6pts needed to overtake the Ramapithicines in their Challenge Cup Semi-Final, the Barbarians await. The Great Whites have extended their lead atop the Predator Cup standings while the Edge look to reel in the Knights and escape the Herbivore's glare.
Thanks again to Bob for posting all the line-ups on the blog. Please double check your totals and let me know if you see something off.
Huge congratulations to Chris on the latest addition to the FunHL family - Page. Keep your stick on the ice and your head up! Sophia, my little girl, turns 7 on Wednesday (party at Ft. Edmonton this afternoon for those of you thinking of flying in) and I can assure you Chris that the time flies by - enjoy the ride my friend!
Week 23 Stats Complete - Great Whites Continue To Lead Predator; Barbarians Sweep Great Whites In One Semi, Other Goes Distance
Here are Week 23 Stats. I had a near panic over the last 20 minutes as I found another 4 inexplicable pts for the Great Whites (recall the 2pts from last week). When I finally figured out the problem I was terrified that I had mistakenly given them some 30 unearned pts over the preceeding 20 weeks and that Dan (and everyone) was going to freak on me. Fortunately, no. The difference was about 3 extra pts (2 of which we noticed last week). All is corrected now and there would have been no impact on any Challenge Cup games.
Congrats to the Barbarians, belatedly, for thier first Challenge Cup series win. This is the most success any team has had in the Challenge Cup that wasn't really at the top of the Predator Cup Standings and is really a fantastic story (sorry Dan, but it is). The other semi between the Ramapithicines and the Knights Templar will need to go the full three games.
With the trade frenzy over I will try and get caught up with week 24 stats ASAP and may even have them up before the week is over. We will see - Sophia's Birthday this weekend.
Welcome back Sidney, we've missed you.
Steven Stamkos scored his 49th and 50th goals of the season in the Lightning’s 6–1 win over the Bruins. It’s the second 50-goal season for the 22-year-old Stamkos, who tallied 51 goals in 2009–10. Stamkos is the seventh player in NHL history to score 50 or more goals in one season at least twice before turning 23 years old. Wayne Gretzky did that an amazing five times, while Mike Bossy, Mario Lemieux, Joe Nieuwendyk, Pavel Bure and Alex Ovechkin each had two such seasons.
Sorry for the delay all. Congrats to the Barbarians and Knights Templar for their Game One Upsets in the Challenge Cup Playoffs. Game Two is underway now (hope to get the stats out for them soon). On the Predator Cup side the Great Whites continue to lead (and I found 2 more pre-wk 20pts that had not registered before, not sure why, but they seem legit) but the Shadow and Heads are gaining. The Edge make a run to escape the cellar and the Highlanders appear willing to assist - come on Sid, your team needs you!!
Thanks again (and again, and again) to Bob for posting the line-ups on the blog and for doing preliminary stats. Much appreciated.
All the trade pursuits are NOW done and five weeks remain until the end of this season. Now clever team management will lead to success or not.
