NationDraft Update: Send In The Cavalry

The Towel Boy
February 05 2010 10:12AM

Holy Schnikies!  Have you checked the Team 1260 NationDraft standings since our last update?!?   What the heck is going on over there!?

There has been a slight alteration of the Top 10, more specifically: the 1st Overall Position.  Also, by “slight” I mean HUGEGANTICUAN!!!!

That’s right people; somebody has called in the cavalry since our last update took place.  I suggest we put on our lab coats and get down to business and use some science to try and figure out what happened and, more importantly, how we can all learn from what appears to be NationDraft Mastery!

TEAM 1260 NATIONDRAFT UPDATE AS OF FEB 4/10

THE TOP TEN

1. Peniuk Pukes 806 0
 
2. Kevo91 793 -13
 
3. R Kenny's Killers 787 -19
 
4. Subaru Shooters 787 -19
 
5. Young Guns 787 -19
 
6. empaul 787 -19
 
7. get er done 786 -20
 
8. Calgary Sucks 783 -23
 
9. The G.O.A.T 783 -23
 
10. KAG 783 -23

As you can see the “Peniuk Pukes” have gone all in.  And by “all in” we mean they have employed the ancient Sun Tzu battle tactic of “Being the only NationDraft team to have Daniel Sedin in their lineup”.  I’m sure that was a chapter in “The Art of War”.  Yes, I’m positive it was.  A couple three point nights for Daniel since our last update has vaulted the “Peniuk Pukes” into stardom.  Kudos!

NATION PEEPS

I suppose you loyal Nation readers are chomping at the bit to find out how well you stack up against the rough and tumble Oilersnation crew.   Let's have a look:

93. Robin Brownlee                          747   -59

201. RossCreek Renegades           728   -78

369. Jason Gregor                            706 -100

457. Towel Boy Vs. Mothra             695 -111

610. The Pacinos                              672 -134

680. Bonsignore Citizens Brigade    661 -145

855. Lord Wanye's Steeds               601 -205

Would you look at Robin Brownlee's placing!  He was in 120th in our last NationDraft update.  I guess having a healthy Jason Spezza has really kicked RB into high gear.  Somebody better keep an eye on him.

WHO'S HOT

Well, as the intro to this update mentioned, Daniel Sedin has had himself quite a good couple of weeks.  Since our last update he has put up 13 points in 8 games.  Daaayyyyyuummm! Also, Robin Brownlee's steed, Jason Spezza, has put up some pretty decent numbers as well.  He has chalked up 8 points over 6 games since returning from injury on Jan 23rd.  Not too shabby.

Another player available in the NationDraft doing alright for himself is Steven Stamkos.  That little firecracker has 12 points in the last 7 games since our last update.  Yowza! Washington's Nicklas Backstrom is also rackin'em up of late.  A 5 point game last night gives him 14 points over the last 8 games.  He is helping out a few NationDraft teams!

Lastly, with a 4 point effort last night, LA's Anze Kopitar deserves a mention here.  Including last night's point feast he has put up 15 points over 8 games.  *swoon*

It seems all the players that should be putting up points for their teams are putting up points for their teams.

NATIONDRAFT TEAMS OF HONOURABLE MENTION

195. Puck Fronger                                    729 -77

Indeed!

247. The Fabulous Rougeau Brothers 722 -84

These guys travel from town to town putting on shows of dazzling feats of strength!  ...and they also participate in the NationDraft.

710. Power Thrust                                                  655 -151

Hahahaha ha hah..ahhhh.ha...  that's sick. 


Well, I certainly hope the next couple weeks are as exciting as the last couple of weeks in the NationDraft.  Will Daniel Sedin go down and ruin the "Peniuk Pukes'" stranglehold on top spot?  We'll have to wait and see I guess.

Yours truly,

The Towel Boy

I don't know where this misinformation of draft updates being "weekly" came from.

It's been semi-biweekly-plus-or-minus-2-to-9-days-or-whenever-I-get-around-to-it since we started this adventure.

So back up out my grill, son!

No wonder Sedin's doing so well this year, he has a gun and rides a bear.

Katz should buy all of the Oilers guns and bears next year.

Were you guys doing acid while you did the photoshop? It's like Lord of the Rings meets Enemy at the Gates meets a bad werewolf flick. In other words, keep up the great work.

Man, the more I look at this picture the more I can't help but think of how helpless the enemy of those bear riders must feel as they see the oncoming terror charging towards them from within the forest!

I mean, it's bad enough that your enemy calls in reserve forces with guns and swords, but to have them call in reserve forces with guns and swords on BEARBACK! Terrifying!

I have to imagine that'd just truly suck out all of your will to fight.

HaHa bearback.... Ok man seriously, that picture is pure gold. You sir have slayed me.

So I'm in 680th place. That's out of 9 billion though right? And not 700? So if you look at it that way I'm doing really well, right? I need some positive reinforcement here!
