The RCL season has come to an end so it’s time to acknowledge all of the individual league winners along with the RCL Hockey Champion of 2016-17.  Let’s get right to it!

O Pie rallied from the 4 seed to win the title over Team Snipes 6-3.

That makes Team CSKA the overall fantasy hockey RCL champion!  Congratulations to him on the title and winning the Best Buy gift certificate.  Please comment below so we can get that to you.  I thank everyone for participating this season and really hope that we can keep growing.  I expect at least 10 leagues next season!

For now, everyone enjoy the playoffs.  Be sure to join the Razzball Bracket Challenge and check out the latest podcast previewing the first round of the playoffs.  You can also make a Three Point Challenge pick on that post with all players eligible.  We will have a podcast on Thursday reviewing the season on the whole from a fantasy perspective.  I am also working on two posts, one highlighting the big things I got wrong this year and then another with what I got right which should be useful for the future.  If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below.  Thanks for reading, take care!

    i saw others complaining about the NHL.com link, never thought of a problem. now i’m outside my house having to use a different internet and i’m completely f’d even getting in. i set a bracket, but was about to tweak certain things.

      @goodfold2: won’t let me log in at all.

        @goodfold2: I just had problems for a while too. Just had to keep hitting refresh

          @Quick Sycamore: by the 11th attempt i COULD log in, BUT couldn’t adjust anything. i was going to change OTT vs BOS to OTT, having heard about the krug injury. i’d go with a 70% karlsson (i’m guessing it’s that much) and home ice rather than a 0% (currently) krug. i wasn’t going back from any of the others.

          very odd during podcast two things weren’t mentioned

          – OTT is by far luckiest team in NHL this year when comparing wins to their negative goal differential (only STL was even close to this earlier in the year, before they played much better at that end)

          – he did pick CHI over NAS, BUT what wasn’t mentioned was just how much CHI’s goaltending is better than NAS’s. it’s not close. i don’t think that one is going very deep at all for CHI winning. way too much playoff experience and goalie edge.

          – i may have picked PIT if somehow i knew malkin was actually healthy (which i doubt he is).

            @goodfold2: also, krejci is out, had i ANY clue about that i’d not have picked BOS.

            – and supposedly murray got hurt in pregame warmups, which i’d lay 4-1 he already had something going on for the last week or so.

              @goodfold2: WOW, they won anyway, even with the was it ZERO 2nd period shots. on the road.

                @goodfold2: That game was bizarre. I’m about to do a recap with Reid of night one along with awards picks,but man that game has to be discouraging for Ottawa
