RedFrog's Ramblings (RedFrogND)

I've never had a blog, but plan on trying it out here on UL.  I will 'ramble' on about various things from my game experiences here on UL to my favorite sports team, the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux to my proud membership of the Raider Nation.  Drop in occasionally and check me out!

1st Annual RedFrog Invitational NHL Hockey Tournament 10/16/2008 11:57:00 AM

Having recently acquired my 'VIP' status, I was trying to think of a good way to utilize my new found ability to create tournaments and came up with the "1st Annual RedFrog Invitation NHL Hockey Tournament"

I invited some of the best players from the site, especially those I thoroughly enjoy playing and the pairings have been set.

In the 1st matchup of the tourney, Loaf and his Edmonton Oilers will travel to take on Fiddy's Pittsburgh Penguins.  This is an intriguing match up, but I foresee Fiddy bringing too much to the table and dispatching of the Oilers with ease.  I'm taking the Penguins to finally get retribution for the Exxon Valdez oil spill.

In the 2nd game of the tourney, Desired Customs and the Canadiens will travel to Chicago to take on RedFrog's host team, the Blackhawks.  This is guaranteed to be a barn burner and the Blackhawks will have to rely on their goaltending if they hope to continue on to the 2nd round.  I'm going with the Blackhawks in OT.

The 3rd game of the 1st round pits MjrBobDangle67(Nailers) and his Boston Bruins against Double Dizzle and the Detroit Redwings.  For some reason, I do not seem to run into Dizzle too often in the hockey leagues, and have yet to play him this year so it is hard for me to effectively evaluate this game.  However, Detroit is a monster team with a ton of talent, and even if the Bruins play well, Bob's propensity to take the ill-advised penalty will cost him in this game.  Redwings rely on 3 PPG's to cruise by the Bruins.

The final game of the opening round, 2 division rivals will battle to the death.  bprough's Colorado Avalanche travel to the northland to take on FatLightng and his Calgary Flames.  This promises to be a nail biter as both teams battle for the right to play in the 2nd round.  This is another tough game to predict, however, I'm going with the home team Flames and a hunch.

Stay tuned for 1st round post game reactions and the 2nd round preview in the coming days.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL TEAMS!!
