Below is the email sent to Helen with an E regarding her inquiry about Brayden Point points. This shows why it is important to check your points, as errors do occur !
I did check your points for Brayden Point and in fact I did miss 2 goals in Game 1 against Florida and an assist in Game 2 against Florida and an assist in Game 3 against Florida. I sincerely apologize. Those errors amount to 6 points which brings your total to 129, 2 points behind Don. I will make an adjustment to reflect your unrecorded points and update the website.
I think I owe you an explanation to how the error occurred. In Round 1 there were 4 games a night. The spreadsheet I use flags each “picked” player in the “box score” I download from the internet that scores a goal or has an assist. I also look for SHG OTG and UAG. As you are familiar with spreadsheets, I compare each one of these events, based on player’s name to the players picked in the draft. For this to work properly the names have to match exactly. Since there we so many goals in games in Round 1 (a total 46 goals in all Round 1 - Game 1) I didn’t double check the point tallies. I didn’t notice that the name you submitted “Bayden Point” didn’t exactly match the actual “Brayden Point” so those early points were missed. I do ask people to check their points, and I try to ensure the points are as accurate as possible but I do make mistakes.
Anyway…thanks for bringing the errors to my attention and again I apologize. This will make for a more exciting Stanley Cup final only 2 points separate the leaders ! It might also answer the question …..which is best … a winning goalie or a hot goal scorer. TBL can lose so the goalies get no points but Point could score goals in a losing effort. This should be interesting.
