NHL Commentators Competition: Week 16

It is time for week 16 of the NHL commentators competition. There are 9 games this week, 3 from TSN, 1 from NBC SN and 5 from CBC. Picks are due at 11:00pm Pacific on Sunday February 5.

Also included are 3 games that will count for points next week. They are all part of NBC’s Hockey Day in America. I am including them with this post because NBC may announce the announcers for those games early. As a result, next week will only include 5 games.

A correct pairing for any Hockey Day in Canada or Hockey Day in America game is worth 5 points because of the difficulty in guessing them. A 1/2 correct guess is still worth 1 point and a 1/3 correct guess is still worth 2. So, lots of points at stake this week, enjoy.

Monday 2/6, 8:00pm – Red Wings @ Coyotes – NBC SN
Wednesday 2/8, 7:30pm – Oilers @ Red Wings – TSN

A special extended edition of the NHL commentators competition will come next week, with Christmas on the horizon. 6 games from TSN, 1 from TSN2 and 1 from Versus this week. Picks are due at 11:00pm Pacific on Sunday December 18.

Note that for NEXT WEEK’S picks, I will post the games on Friday December 16. Picks are due on Friday December 23 at 11pm Pacific.

Another note, I have decided to divide the season into two halves, to give those who are more or less out of the running for the win a second chance. The first half will end on January 14. I haven’t yet decided if I will award two prizes (one for each winner), if I’ll decide an overall winner between the two winners. If I win one half, whoever wins the other half gets a prize. If I win both halves, whoever has the most overall points (aside from myself) gets the prize. Aside from these 8 games, there will be 20 more in the first half.
