I have no clue what this thread is for either.

Short and sweet of it....Its a mathematical calculation of how many points are needed to clinch a playoff spot. When it hits 0, were mathematically in. There are more detailed explanations throughout the thread. There are also a lot of scouting reports on our competition along with other between game entertainment. ;)

So much happens in this thread now, even I'm not sure what goes on! :P

The main idea was to keep track of the Magic Number to clinch a playoff spot. Basically when MN reaches 0 we clinch a playoff spot.

The algebra has been explained in previous pages, and you can find a description of it here:

Further to that, we do a whole bunch of other stuff related to this MN number, and other MN numbers we've added through out the years.

Between you and me, this thread basically gives us die hard fans something positive to do between game nights :D

If you still have questions, just ask. We'll be more than happy to explain.

yeah i saw that link and the words are all choppy ... mn-scout? :huh:

Keep checking in ( especially the morning after games are played involving Eastern teams)You will see that number begin to drop throughout the season.When it hits 0 we are automatically in the playoffs. You will soon be an addict to this thread. ;)

We all have our days... read it again and zoom in, it helps :)

What do I have to do to be a MN scout?

MN scouts provide preview reports and stats to the MN thread on upcoming games for teams playing in our conference to help MN'ers make predictions on those games and just for information how things are going in our conference.

I use a combination of these:

http://www.nhl.com/; http://www.tsn.ca/fantasy_news/daily_line/NHL/ ; http://msn.foxsports.com/nhl/headToHead ; http://www.habsinsideout.com/ ; http://forecaster.ca/thescore/hockey/tott.cgi?NJ ;

1. Buffalo Sabres - HTL[sabres] ...taken

2. New Jersey Devils - ???[Devils]?

3. Atlanta Thrashers - ???[Thrashers]?

4. Montreal Canadiens - [Wildcard]

5. Ottawa Senators - .scott[senators] ...taken

6. Pittsburgh Penguins - HHN[Penguins] ...taken

7. Tampa Bay Lightning - Greek Hab[Lightning] ...taken

8. Carolina Hurricanes - ???[Hurricanes]?

9. Toronto Maple Leafs - Newfie_GURRL29[Leafs] ...taken

10. New York Islanders - Kindred [islanders] ...taken

11. New York Rangers - Hoser[Rangers] ...taken

12. Washington Capitals - ???[Capitals]?

I know its only pre season but i'm loving this slaughter at the hands of the Sabres. Even saw one fan holding up his arms signaling touchdown. :P I think i'm gonna watch this one twice just for laughs ( pun intended). Toskala will soon be the new whipping boy of the fans with efforts like this. :lol:

In my fantasy league of 8, Toskala was one of the goaltenders who actually didn't get drafted.

Also, what the heck is this thread supposed to be about?
