    Blah. Pretty weak night thus far (for me, at least)!

    I’m already focused on the DK Mega Forecheck tomorrow, and have already written DK Support to sharply criticize the payout structure. $200 for 9-11th! $80 for 26th! Of a $22k entry tournament! I’ll be putting in my usual entries anyway, but begrudgingly!

    The Mega Forecheck pays out the top 28% of entries whereas the regular Forechecks pay out the top 23%. The top prize in the Mega was increased slightly but the total number of $6 prizes increased so that a higher percentage of entries cash. Its not like they increased the rake or anything.

    I’m not criticizing it for the rake. They need to lower the first place prize down to $4,000 (or maybe $3,500), cut out all of the $6 winners, and distribute the savings around the top 1%.

    Ha. Thanks! Noticed that about 15 minutes ago, at which point nothing good has happened for anybody (except for those ahead of me).

    I got cute and went Klefborn over Sekera, despite preferring Sekera’s PP correlation with my EDM L1.

    Klefborn differentiates me from almost everyone at the top, though, so I’ve been rooting for shots and blocks from him to no avail.

    DK paying top 30% really hurts the multi entry players I will not play it

    I wish I could not play it on principle, but most of my money is on DK and I don’t want to use up more of my FD bankroll on their bigger $25 entry tournament than I already have. So, into the horrible pay out tournament I go.

    We shall see. The win has been scored, but not the shutout yet!

    I normally glance back to see who is within 5 close to the end of the night when a shutout is going, but there it was so tight due to the low scoring night I just gave up.

  • deejones49

    All 4 road teams won tonight with 3 shutouts

    Good luck. It always take three weeks for them to add the shutout bonus. They must monitor to see if any goals were scored long after the players have retired to the locker rooms and are on the plane.

    Yeah when 75% of games end in shutouts = dull night. Of all home teams, the Avalanche were the only ones to score.

  • sizzlebeans

    Well no forum league cash tonight but at least I won the quarter arcade haha

  • epot

    congrats :) nieto nice pick

  • sizzlebeans

    He looked fresh against us the other night and is getting solid ice time. Was waiting for a good spot to roll him out

  • TimmerRC

    I managed 29th in the Forecheck… maybe my best placing ever? Looking forward to tomorrow, that’s a sick field of games…

  • sizzlebeans

    Nice work Timmer

  • mathewsmarner

    if u want to go on stacking affordable players, I say go with the canucks and sabres

    They are definitely both facing crappy D’s tomorrow, I could see either or both hit 4 goals for sure!

  • mathewsmarner

    i like canadians, penguins, sabres and canucks tomorrow, the only down side i see of all 4 is all 4 is on the road and today 3 teams who manged shut outs were on the road, i’m just hoping that trend repeats or else i missed the band wagon

  • TimmerRC

    Note that Malkin is probably out for the Penguins, so they are going to be shuffling lines. I’m mostly off of PIT at this point.

  • mathewsmarner

    brad marchand might be the ideal pick if pittsburgh has another off night without malkin
