Okay boys and girls – it’s hockey pool time!
CHB has set up a hockey pool on Yahoo Sports. If you have a Yahoo account, you’re free to join.
It’s a rotisserie league, which means you’re ranked according to various statistical categories:
In a Rotisserie League, fantasy teams are ranked from first to last in each of several statistical categories. Points are then awarded according to the order of finish in each category and are totaled to determine an overall score and place.
I thought about doing a straight-up points league, but I figured the rotisserie set-up would be more interesting as you’d need to also draft players who are good at other areas of the game besides scoring.
Right now, we’re playing for pride (and fun, of course), though I’ll see what I can get from the Canucks in terms of swag.
Draft will be done live and online on Monday, September 28 at 6:30 PM. You have to be present at the draft. If you’re interested – and available to draft on the 28th – send me an email at email@example.com or leave a comment with your email address and I’ll send you the password. We can only take a maximum of 20 teams so it’ll be first-come, first-serve.
BTW… If you’re looking for a good source of hockey pool information, let me plug the Fantasy Hockey Scouts – good guys who are also part of the Score Federation.
Let the games begin!
