Trade alert-

I have been traded from The Flyers to The Avalanche for Eye-gore, a 3rd in the 2009 draft, and future considerations.

The Avs got fleeced.

surely Falconer can pull off a trade to rescue Stealth Chicken since he can't be rated more than a 3......

The heck with that. The Avs and Blues have far too many chickens on them. He should come to the Rangers.

Not sure who or what we could trade for him. I have a bag of pucks somewhere....

A bag of pucks? You would be getting ripped off my friend!

Impossible to get if you are the only chicken on your team... I fear my chicken stats will go down this season.

(Serious answer....helmet sticker points are awarded for a commendable play that might otherwise not be recognized. You are generally nominated for said points by other Chickens who witness the deed. Good play candidates include winning a great battle for the puck along the boards to maintain control in a tight game, saving the teams bacon after a Matt pass goes astray, or successfully flirting with the goalie distracting him so that another teammate can score.)

I don't recall the stipulation that they have to be witnessed by other chickens. I have no problem with an Honor System... although Adam's will need to be verified by witnesses, notarized and submitted in triplicate... with video footage from as many angles as possible if available.

Almost all of my GOOD plays are just helmet stickers since we don't count terrific outlet passes or assists.

trust me, assists are way, WAY too subjective. I've been scorekeeping before and had guys come up to claim assists that I KNOW were only in their imagination.
let your assists live here:

I have absolutely NO intention of doing anything that might warrant a helmet sticker this season, unless I can get one for cherry picking. So no worries.

LOL yeah i got one in our open game a couple weeks ago and the ref said "14 yellow" and i was like "what did i do now??" and he said "you got the assist" ...doh!...i thought i was being sent to the box for something! that was not one of my "beauts"..it was a case of "here, you have it! i'm afraid to carry it!!" (i really need to get over that...)

I think it was actually after we let Gamera (careful, mods will ban you for use of first name ) BACK in. at one time, many, many years ago, maybe even before That Other Bored Gamera was a legend around here. back then I don't think she ever slept or even left her computer for that matter.

Old Folks--Someone (like the chart keeper?) might want to repost the rules for these new folks lest they be here trying to count sub goals and such.

New Folks--Welcome to the chase for the colander. No complaining when the old man outscores you this season.
