And the Winner Is

After winning every 'Team of the Month' Award (for having the best ranking average over each month) this season and holding on to not only win, but win with a commanding lead 'Greatness' has been crowned the 2009 WTHL Season Champ. With his final score of 229 points, this rookie GM has made his presence known in this beloved league and took away $200 bucks from some long standing veterins in the process.

Congrats Greatness. It was a well deserved victory.

Runner up to the team on top was Porters Penguins who in the final weeks of the season made a serious push on first overall, but just couldn't get the steam to take down Greatness. One has to quesiton (as the GM is quick to point out) if the team didn't sit his goalies through 3 or 4 shutouts, would he have won? Maybe. Who knows? Quite the rivalry to look out for in the 5th season. For now, the Penguins will have to settle with having that haunting feeling of bench players, but the $80 bucks for 2nd place should help with that.

In third was Soylent Greene who was a consistant front runner for first throughout most of the season. A well deserve third, and with that $20.

Congrats Everyone! I'll be designing a cup of some sort to post here sometime, but for now this'll have to do... and you do have braggin' rights for a whole year. Perhaps next year we'll convince everyone to through in an extra 5 bones to get a real cup!

Mover and Shaker - Week 27

For the 2nd time in a row the Mover and Shaker of the week is none other than Figgy with a gain of 5 points over the past week. Although he will not be winning a free move this week (as it doesn't matter due to the season ending today) winning 2 weeks in a row is something to write home about. It's just too bad for him that his late surge was indeed just that... late. Congrats none the less.

Mover and Shaker - Week 26

Well this is it folks; the final Mover and Shaker for the 08-09 season. This coming week will be the last week of play in the WTHL and the league winners will then be decided. With that being said, the winner of the MAS this week, with a massive gain of 10.5 points (a full 6 points ahead of anyone else) was Figgy. It may be too little, too late for Figgy to get in the money but this impressive jump sends a league a message for next year. With him winning the Mover and Shaker this week, his max moves drop from 24 to 23.

All the stats for the entire season is here:
