It's that time, you gambling addicts!
The good news is it costs you nothing so it's not much of a gamble. The better news is we will give you something if you win, however belatedly.
It's the same rules as always: Pick any 25 players, no goalies, 2 spares. You'll get 1 point for each of the following:
- Game winning goal
- Short-handed goal
Most points at the end of the year gets the loot. You will have a chance to sub in your 2 spare players at the All-Star break. If you sub in a player, you lose the points of the player you are dropping and add the points of your sub.
Like last season, to try and add some variety to the teams, you'll only be able to pick 5 of the top 10 point getters from last season. Those players can be found at www.nhl.com/ice/playerstats.htm
Please send me you picks at firstname.lastname@example.org by 7 pm, Thursday, Oct. 6. Don't be a weasel and send them a week late! Also, double check your player counts. Every year we get submissions that don't have the right number of players and I have to taunt you for acting like a leafer. Don't be a leafer!
We'll post the pool online with Officepools.com when we're up and running.
Good luck to you all and enjoy the pool!
