A Regular Season Title Comes to Nashville

Yes, I've heard all that nonsense about how the Presidents Trophy is somehow cursed, and that winning the regular season is a sure-fire ticket to postseason collapse. Well, I certainly hope that doesn't hold true for Fantasy Hockey.

Remember, James, send this to Nashville, not Hamilton!

Not to toot my own horn here (ah, who am I kidding? That's exactly what I'm doing!), but the Fab Forecheckers have just concluded a very successful regular season in James Mirtle's Blogger Invitational Fantasy Hockey League over on Yahoo Sports. Follow some of the links below to find a who's-who of the NHL blogging world:

*Playoff Teams

Perhaps my favorite part of this is that a 5-6-2* record in Week One was my only losing effort of the entire 23-week season. It's either that or the fact that only two owners made fewer roster moves along the way, a sign both that I drafted well and largely avoided the injury bug.

This week is round one of the playoffs, wherein myself and the Blogless Wonders get a bye; Mirtle matches up with Matt of the Battle to determine my opponent next week, while the other side of the bracket has The Alcoholic Army against Spector's Spudheads.

I'll have to ask Mrs. Forechecker if I can get working on that playoff beard...

*There are 13 scoring categories in this head-to-head league: Goals, Assists, Plus/Minus, PIM, PPG, PPA, GWG, and SOG for skaters, and W, GAA, Saves, Save Pct., and Shutouts for goalies.
