    Two reasons for this post:

    1) Just to bump it to the front of the line again. Hopefully some FOGs have just "overlooked" the potential to win 24 premium-type sticks. :)

    2) Throwing my two-cents in about the blind draw. I totally agree with that. It's just more polite for this kind of "long distance" wagering.

    Anyway, let's drum up some action for the 6 remaining slots.

    If you are going to do a blind draw for the teams, you can put me down for two spots if we can have multiple teams.

    Ok, so for the blind draw, I figure I'll have 2 hats, one with player names and one with team names. We'll draw one player name and one team name each round, till they're all gone. I'll have the wife do the drawing and I'll log the results. This sound kosher to all involved?

    Jonsey, got ya added for one spot for now. I figure once we get closer to playoffs starting if we still have empty spots we can open it up to people that want to buy in for another. Sound good?

    This my first time setting something like this up, so thanks for bearing with me guys.

    Hold onto them, once winners are determined you'll be advised on who to send them to.

    That's exactly why I not in. With my luck, I'd draw the Habs.

    I dunno. My bad luck in drawings may trump yours, but then I guess that'd just mean 2 of us losing 2 sticks. :laugh:

    Ok, we have all 16 players!

    Tomorrow ends the regular season, so the blind draw will take place this week sometime, and then the fun begins!

    Good luck to all!

    I hear you. With my luck I'll get the Ducks. :( In the off chance they win those would be the most bitter cigars ever. :laugh:
