    Default whatifsports daily competition

    https://www.whatifsports.com/locker/

    its a website that has a free version that allows you to sim a hockey game between past nhl teams .

    friendly competition

    someone names a team to get the competition started . I'll be the first and choose the 2013-2014 islanders that had a 34-37 win-loss record

    to keep it interesting and fair we must pick a team that only had at best equal wins / losses for that particular season so that none of us are picking a dynasty era team . For example , a record of 35 wins 35 losses 12 ties would be alright and so would something like 30 wins 40 losses 12 ties .

    so roll up your sleeves before submitting your challenge to ensure team you choose is at or below .500 in wins-losses for the particular season you choose (nevermind ties/so losses)

    I'll post link to the play by play boxscore of result

    heres and example of a boxscore 2013-14 isles v.s 1975-76 scouts . Isles won 5-0
    https://www.whatifsports.com/nhl/pbp...d=0&teamfee=-1

    fav part of boxscore
    Penalty: 2 minute penalty on Steve Durbano for roughing
    2 minute coincidental penalty on Thomas Hickey (13-14 Islanders) for roughing
    That was just ugly!

    How about the 1983-84 Montreal Canadiens (record of 35-40-5)?

    Writer of the weekly Top 10 column.

    12-team Keeper pool, straight points for forwards & dmen. Goalies get: 2 points per win, 3 per shutout, 1 point per assist & 1 point per shootout loss.

    League champ in 2013, 2015 and 2018.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    We keep 15 players (any position) plus two rookies.

    Forwards: Eichel, Marchessault, Pacioretty, Kyle Connor, Couturier, Stone, Tatar, Dadonov, R. Strome, J.T. Miller, E. Staal, Zegras, Heponiemi
    Defence: Hamilton, Suter, Krug, Pionk, Morrissey, Ellis, Ekman-Larsson,
    Goalies: Hellebuyck, Rinne, Rask

    I think I can figure out how to set this up on WiS when challenged. I actually just joined FC dynasty, as it's free, will check it out. Used to play Gridiron Dynasty there, but let that slip a while ago.

    90-91 oilers / axeman v.s 79-80 oilers / stevegamer

    The whale win their 3rd in row 7-4 over oilers

    box
    https://www.whatifsports.com/nhl/pbp...d=0&teamfee=-1

    Jordy Douglas (79-80 Whalers) had a breakaway and was pulled down by Chris Joseph (90-91 Oilers)! The referee has awarded 79-80 Whalers a PENALTY SHOT! The crowd is on their feet as Jordy Douglas gets ready to face Bill Ranford head-to-head! Here comes Jordy Douglas across the blue line... Bill Ranford squares up... He shoots, HE SCORES!!!

    stevegamer and his current choice of 79-80 whalers are now 3-0

    ok , so the result of the above team entered by PH is a 5-2 loss

    box
    https://www.whatifsports.com/nhl/pbp...d=0&teamfee=-1

    The equipment has hit the ice and the fists are flying. Keith Acton is taking the fight to Mark Howe. Right...right...left...and this one is over. The officials are helping Mark Howe to the box, while Keith Acton is practically doing a victory lap on his way to the bin.

    79-80 whalers / stevegamer 4 wins in a row .....
