2013 WJHC Players Pool Standings: Day 1

Richard Wolowicz

Day 1 is in the books, so here are the updated pool standings

Day 1 of 10 is in the books at the World Juniors in Ufa with four of the tournament's 31 games completed. We had 39 brave souls willing to test their skill against me in our WJHC Players Pool and so far... um, 39 of you are beating me??? Thought I'd give you all a headstart, I suppose... so consider yourself warned!

Here are the Day 1 Standings (through Game #4).

A few observations after analyzing the 40 entries a little (link to a list of entries):

- The most one-sided boxes were the Sweden box where 27 out of 40 chose Filip Forsberg, Group A 2013 Eligibles where 27 chose Aleksandr Barkov and the Russia box where 27 chose Nail Yakupov.

- Other interesting boxes were Canada where the most prevalent pick was Ryan Nugent-Hopkins with 20 and the USA where 26 chose Alex Galchenyuk.

- Surprised that a majority of you (21 out of 40) chose Nate MacKinnon despite that fact that he begins the tournament as, arguably, Canada's 13th forward.

- The most disputed category was the Latvia/Switzerland box where each of Sven Andrighetto, Teodors Blugers & Tanner Richard were picked 12 times.

- The most popular write-in Sleeper picks were Miro Aaltonen for Group A (picked 4 times) and Ty Rattie for Group B (16 although some of the entries were given Rattie by default). Aaltonen looked like a steal of a pick with 2+1=3 today until he wrecked his ankle in the 3rd period and is now out for the tournament.
