I think it might be too late for this year, but I'm looking for some feedback on whether anyone might be interested in participating in an NHL Regular Season Pool in the same sort of format as this pool. Some preliminary thoughts are:

  • Entry Fee: $30.00 CAD for the whole season
  • Limited to 5 games per week selected (mostly) at random
  • Weekly prizes as well as aggregate prize for the regular season
  • NO playoff portion to the pool (at least until I figure out how it should work)

So what do you think? Is this something that you or your friends might be interested in playing? Is there something you would like to see done differently? Do you have any suggestions for how to handle the playoffs?

Please add your thoughts by replying in this message thread. Thanks.

Bob

Possible playoff format for the pool might be:

  • Treat each of the playoff rounds (i.e.: Rounds 1 & 2, Conference Finals, and Stanley Cup Final) as a "week".
  • For each "week" consider each series as a single game, where you select the winner and total number of goals scored.
  • The playoff prize would be awarded to the players that had the best aggregate score, similar to the way it is done for the CFL Pool.

One problem with this is that there are eight series in the first round.

Another option is that each series is entered separately and is considered as a single game. Then the prize is awarded based on the best aggregate score of all of the series.

Well, the new NHL Pool site is set up and (mostly) ready to go. The URL is: https://nhlpool.rsds.ca. We're still finalizing the code for the playoff portion of the pool, but hope to have it all sorted out within a week or so.

Since the new site is now live, I suggest that we move all further discussion over there so that it's all in one place.

Thanks everyone for your input and support, and your participation in the new pool.
