WiiM Fantasy Hockey Update

Good afternoon, everyone. As some of you may recall, back in August/September, Casey launched two separate fantasy hockey leagues for the Winging it in Motown Community: one for those new to fantasy hockey, and one for us veterans. We're about halfway through the season, and I bet most of you forgot all about it, didn't you? Come on, you can be honest; we're not going to ban you from the site just because you don't set your lineups every day.

All kidding aside, we thought it would be a good idea to give you an update on where things stood in the two leagues. Follow me after the jump where we'll post the standings.

Well, here you go. First, let's take a look at the standings in the WIM Rookies League:

15.   Zata 84-99-27 .464 26-26-8 195

Capernicus has a nice lead both in his/her division as well as overall, but Plopper Tecca Nina (a truly great name, if you ask me) is keeping it fairly close. With almost half the season left to go, no one is out of it yet.

In the WIM Veterans League, the standings look like this:

11.   Mouthguard Optional 91-90-29 .502 29-23-8 211
13.   Sharpskates 87-94-29 .483 28-24-8 203
Lindsay Division
4.   DudeWhere'sMyCarle? 100-84-26 .538 26-26-8 226
10.   The Fifth Line 87-84-39 .507 23-27-10 213
12.   The Drunk Murph Show 87-89-34 .495 27-22-11 208
15.   Vandelay Industries 83-96-31 .469 28-22-10 197
16.   Thrift Store Jesus 83-102-25 .455 23-30-7 191

This league is a little closer at the top, but also has a couple of teams that are pretty much done (I'm looking at you, Tatar-Tots). I would like to point out that yours truly is the manager of The Fifth Line, and if anyone is willing to deal a goalie, I'm open to trades.

Remember, the playoff format for both leagues is as follows: The top 6 teams make the "Championship Bracket" and vie for the league title. The number 1 and 2 seeds will have a bye while the 3rd seed plays the 6th seed and 4th plays 5th. The winners then face off against 1st and 2nd, and the winners play for it all. The teams seeded 7th through 12th go through the exact same format in the "Consolation Bracket".

I figured after the debacle/snoozefest that was last night's game, everyone could use a little distraction before tomorrow's game against the Blues. I also thought it might be fun if those that are involved in the league could post what their team is in the comments; maybe we can get a little trash talking going.
