The End of Season Newsletter

Well, it's official. After the the final statistical audit, late on Monday morning, Dieter Granson is our winner for the pool this year. He's our Grand Prize winner and to see all the prizes, click here. He managed to keep Don away at the finish, despite a big effort by Don to try and catch him in the last few weeks. It was all for second place, however. Here's the final list of prize winners for the 2006/2007 season.

Let's see what happened in Week Twenty-Seven...

Player of the Week

Our final Player of the Week cinched 100 points for the year against the Flames last night. Joe Sakic (Box 2) had 9 points in the week to reach triple-digits.

A goal and three assists against Calgary on Tuesday, shutout against the Canucks on Thursday, two assists against Nashville on Saturday and finally a goal and two assists against Calgary on Sunday. It was quite the week that saw the Avalanche cling to some playoff hopes, only to be dashed by the Predators on Saturday. It was still a great year for Burnaby Joe though.

Martin Brodeur – 121 points
Our pool MVP this season was Martin Brodeur (Box 18). He beat Bernie Parent's single season win record this week with 48 wins, not to mention 12 shutouts and an assist that put him over the top this season. He finished that one assist ahead of Sidney Crosby, who led all skaters in scoring with 120 points, which made him the youngest player to ever win the Art Ross Trophy. It was quite the marvelous season for scoring and hopefully it all carries into the playoffs on Wednesday!
