PostBarCampHockeyPool

Page history last edited by Darren Barefoot 13 years, 4 months ago

I thought it would be fun to run a draft for a hockey pool immediately following BarCamp 2008. We'll gather in The Backstage Lounge (part of the Arts Club Theatre) by 17:30 (sharp!). I'll run the draft like Gary Bettman, so we should wrap up by 19:30. More details will emerge, and these rules may change, but for starters:

 

  • We'll accept up to 20 participants (though I doubt we'll get this many).
  • It costs $20 to enter. I'll be using OfficePools.com to manage the pool, and that costs $20. The remainder of the pot will be divided with 80% going to the winner and 20% going to the 2nd place finisher. There's no bronze medal in hockey pools.
  • Everybody drafts 15 players, and they have to take at least four defencemen and (only) one goalie.
  • For skaters, it's the usual 1 point for a goal or an assist.
  • Goalies receive 1 point for a win and 2 points for a shutout. So, for example, Henrik Lundqvist was good for 57 points (37 wins plus 10 shutouts) last year.
  • There will be one mid-year redraft where participants can drop and pick up a maximum of three players (while respecting the aforementioned rules on defencemen and goalies). The redraft order goes from worst to first in the usual snakey format.
