2012-2013 Predictions: Who will be the first Hab to...

Finally life getting back to normal and some Habs hockey to talk about and play with! While waiting for all the t's to be crossed and the i's to be dotted in the new CBA, lets get back to game shape ourselves and start predicting again this year smile.gif

Other than the shortened season, there will be no change to the format of this thread. Here's a reminder of how it works:

  • Correct answers to the original set of 20 questions will be worth 5 points.
  • During the season, there will be a set of 10 questions for each game. For those rounds, points per correct answer may vary depending on the game or the questions themselves, but the point system will always be posted at the same time as the questions. The first set will be posted a few days before the start of the season.
  • Results and rankings will be posted after each game unless otherwise specified. For example, there may be two sets of questions posted at once for back to back games, in which case the results and rankings will be posted after the second game of the back to back.
  • This year the game is available only on the English side of the forum.
  • You can participate in any or all of the rounds, there’s no restriction. Obviously, the more you participate, the more points you’ll accumulate.
  • This game is for the regular season only. Hopefully this year, there will be a separate one for the playoffs after the season is over.





Lets start immediately with the original 20 questions. This is pretty straight forward, pick a Hab player you think will be the first in each listed category. You can quote the blue part of this post for ease of use and you can change your mind as many times as you want until the start of the first game broadcast, your last entry will be the one that counts.

I have 2 questions

1. Will this thread get locked right before the season? Just wondering if I'll be able to edit some answers since the lineup isn't set.

2. If no one gets a hat trick, does everyone get points or do only the people who indicated no one get points? Just want to make sure haha!

If I'm not mistaken, you can adjust your answers anytime before puck drop. After that, your picks are the last ones you make. That's why I'm waiting to see the final roster before making my picks. The more adjustments you make, might make it more difficult to keep score.

If no-one gets a hat trick, no-one gets points. CRB has the last say tho, as she put up the thread. I would assume that if you said "Nobody",,,you won't get points either,,,,but I'm not sure.

Technically nobody is a prediction which gets points during games so you should get the five for the initial.

1- I look at the time stamp of the post to determine if they're eligible so you have until the start of the game broadcast to post as many changes as you want.

2- Writing 'nobody' or 'no one' or something similar will give you 5 points if indeed no Hab score a hat trick. Leaving a blank however will not count.

Perfect, thank you for the answers!
