I wasnt joking Magic, just didn't think I had enough to go on to convince my team.

I made out I was joking as I felt a bit stupid at the time due to someone else suggesting it was elsewhere not long after.

An overhead of Valencia for 9 - looks good to me.

Interesting little challenge this weekend because I think we're out of comfort zones and also tactically. Wouldn't say Gretzky were certs for the five points just yet...although you may think they should have an advantage...

Yes, you're right, we're headed over the Atlantic to participate in a bit of roughing up as we try our luck in the NHL! We will be using the 12 games taking place on Sunday (our time) and these vary from very early morning (midnight) through to some games on Sunday evening. All of these can be used.

This is a challenge that considers just how much you want to risk. You essentially have to pick teams that will win the games. In the NHL there are no draws (all matches are concluded on the day be it in overtime or through penalty shots). You get to decide how many teams you pick in different 'groups' and if all the teams in any of your groups win, you score the amount of points corresponding to the amount of teams. I.e. 4 teams = 4 points. You may pick any number of teams including 1 if you so wish but if you pick 4 in a selection but only 3 win, you score nothing.

Team Gretzky get 5 groups, Kahn 4, Kournikova 3, Owens 2 and Tyson 1. So for example, Gretzky may go for:

1. Carolina Hurricanes (if they win, 1 point to Gretzky)
2. Montreal Canadiens, Washington Capitals (if they both win, 2 points to Gretzky)

And three more groups of selections....they could pick 5 teams separately to accrue 1 point at a time should they wish given their advantage, whereas Tyson having just one pick may have to pick multiple teams to try and be competitive.

You can put the same team in more than one group but obviously this could be risky.

Will you go hard or go home? Will it pay to be bold or conservative?

Any questions do ask because this is maybe a bit more complex but I hope I've explained it well enough.

Here are the fixtures (Flashscores is a decent enough site to give you head to head, standings etc etc):

Just to confirm, your groups don't have to be different. You could use the same group of 2 (say) three, four, five times if you wish...

Surprised everyone else went for St. Petersburg for 5. Zenit's new ground (bottom of picture 9) is being built on the banks of a river, in fact I think it was the first city I identified.

Pireaus - Greek alphabet on the top right of the picture.

You're welcome.

Some early carnage as Winnipeg fall 3-0 to the flyers leaving Gretzky hanging on for dear life! If Nashville don't turn around their one goal deficit in the final period then it's a blank for the team in front!

Washington Capitals equalised with 0.8 seconds left on the clock to give them a chance of an overtime win.

The Hurricanes have beaten the senators in the other completed game.

Capitals win on pens to give Kahn a big edge. The Rangers lead 2-0 but there's still a while to go there. Nashville are now 2 down so it's looking like a nightmare wipeout for Gretzky. Kournikova taking second as things stand, but they cannot win.

The Blues add a third against the Predators and barring a miracle, all the hard work from Gretzky has not paid off...

Gretzky pick up nothing BUT much rests on the Penguins who have just started their match. If they win then Kournikova pick up three points. If they don't then it's not a complete disaster as all the other four teams will pick up three points :lol: I wasn't expecting to have to use this rule for a four-way tie for second (with 0 points) but I did say any ties and all teams would get the points so got to stick with that.

EDIT: And the Flames take an early lead :eek:

The Penguins 4-1 down which makes it look like it will be a straight battle in the last week...whoever comes out on top between Gretzky and Kahn will win the competition! (Unless Owens, Tyson and Kournikova sweep up the top 3 spots :hesk:)

We should have just picked the MIGHTY Anaheim Ducks as a single for every scenario.

Also, rather than spending time mocking us, update the Sheep OP you lazy bugger :hesk:
