Nation Network Hockey Pool, November 27th Edition

Jonathan Willis
November 28 2011 12:30AM

It was a close thing, but last week's leader held off a strong challenge to remain in first for a second consecutive week.

The original entries and rules are here. Scoring is as laid out in the original post, with one exception: because goaltenders are graded primarily on save percentage, some have run up enormous (or enormously bad) totals in the early going, so I have divided their totals by four (we’re roughly one-fourth through the season, league-wide) to prevent them from crazily skewing the contest. As the season continues, these updates will feature goaltender totals divided by a lesser amount.

JW said "...It was a close thing, but last week's leader held off a strong challenge to remain in first for a second consecutive week..."

...yup i battled hard all week...i was able to dominate in the fractions and squeeeeeeek out some more awesomeness two weeks in a row ...with Hall out for gawd knows how long my lead may dwindle and the challenge will be too much for me to hold off...

Still kicking myself for my failure to read instructions and not realizing that +/- counted.

From 108th to 69th eh. Its exactly the position I wanted to be in. Hopefully I can stay there for a while.

On another note Ovechkin, Getzlaf, Hiller and Brzgalov are a huge disappointment so far this year.
