Fantasy Fail Friday: The All-Scrubs Lineups

Well, you the fans came out in droves to vote for your favorite worst NHL players to participate in the 2011 Brian Willsie Invitational All-Scrubs Game Presented by Enron and Pepsi Blue

For those that don’t remember (or don’t care) the 

Brian Willsie Invitational Loser League is a fantasy hockey league comprised of some of the best and brightest hockey bloggerstweeters and fans who have come together to compete for one common goal… to assemble the worst fantasy hockey team possible. The rules are simple… if you score goals, get power play points or shutout opposing teams… you earn positive points. If you lose faceoffs, take awful penalties and are a consistent minus on your team… you earn negative points. The team with the most negative points at the end of the season takes home the coveted Mike Milbury GM of the Year Award


Sometimes a picture is worth a 1000 words.
 Or 7.15 million a year. 

We received 147 total votes, and surprisingly, the 2010-2011 Los Angeles Kings lineup was not a write-in. But who is the leading vote getter in the 2011 Brian Willsie Invitational All-Scrubs Game Presented by Enron and Pepsi Blue… with an astounding 8 votes?


Sup, bitches.

The players have been divided into two conferences that honor the two worst Los Angeles Kings All-Stars of all time… the Dmitri Khristich Conference and the Jaroslav Modry Conference. Indiana Matt and myself will create the teams in NHL 11 and then battle over the actual NHL All-Star Weekend to determine a winner. Let’s take a look at the Starting Lineups!

The Khristich Conference



The Modry Conference


The Ghosts of Huet are the Pittsburgh Penguins of the Brian Willsie Invitational with 4 All-Scrub Selections. And surprisingly, league leader Daneyko’s Darlings were shut out in the All-Scrub Selection process. And before a controversy starts… Rick DiPietro and Martin Brodeur tied with 5 votes a piece and Nikolai Khabibulin and Jason LaBarbera also tied with 5 votes a piece… but I’m the Commissioner and I can do what ever I want. Plus, I figured DiPietro vs Khabibulin is a pretty even, awful All-Star matchup. Stay tuned to The Royal Half for all of your All-Scrub Weekend coverage!

Let’s take a quick look at the leaderboard going into this weekend’s action.


The action has been tight, but it still seems like a 3 horse race between Daneyko’s Darlings, The Ghost of Huet and The Scouts. And in other league news… this happened.


That’s right. Brian Willsie was called up by the Washington Capitals and Pirnes Envy quickly grabbed him up. Willsie had 1 point in 1 game before being sent back down to Hersey… further proving that Willsie can’t even be good at being bad. As always, make sure you check out Chris Sampang’s 3 Scrubs of the Night each night on Twitter.
