I thought this would make an interesting confession-type thread, as I am sure I'm not the only one who gets a little nutty in a tight playoff matchup. Here are two of my crazier moves.
1) At the end of the 11-12 season, when Duncan Keith was serving a suspension, I decided I couldn't stand to have him occupy a roster spot and not produce. Salary league. Any player can be buried, but anyone over 1.8 million has to clear waivers. So I waived him of course. Lost him on waivers, and while I don't recall if I won that particular playoff round, I do know I didn't win the league title.
2) Different league, trade deadline 12-13. Decided I had a shot at the title, but Fowler was dragging me down. Multicat league, and he wasn't giving me anything. Being over 150 games played I couldn't get him to the farm without waivers, which I knew wouldn't clear. I offered him to a non-contending team for Ryan Ellis, who I could farm, then did the rotating treat-of-the-week free agent thing with the open spot. Came in 2nd place, despite the absence of Crosby, and the fact that said absence made Kunitz awful.
So what silliness have you pulled, and how much do you regret it?
