Everybody In The Pool!

One of the best things about the start of the hockey season? Hockey pools! Already, I've participated in one online draft; in the next couple of weeks, I have four more online and live ones. If you're a hockey nut, you're probably participating in a few yourselves.

That in mind, I'd like to invite you to participate in the inagural Canucks Hockey Blog hockey pool. To keep it simple and fun (and with lots of opportunity to trash talk), I've set the pool over on TheCommonFan.com. The pool is free for anyone to join, and if "free" is not enough to entice you to join, I'm also going to give away a FREE CANUCKS REPLICA JERSEY (est. value $120) to the pool winner.


  • Select a roster made up of 20 NHL players (forwards/defensemen, no goalies).
  • Collect 1 point for each goal, assist, short-handed goal, and game-winning goal - most points at the end of the regular season wins.
  • There are no trades or roster changes allowed when the season starts.
  • The tie-breaker (in order): 1) total goals, 2) total game-winning goals, 3) total shorthanded goals.
  • If there is still a tie after the tie-breakers, I'm going to put their names in a basket and hold a draw to determine the winner.
  • Please folks - only one team per person.

Everybody in the pool!

I just won the office pool using a free pick from http://theringerz.com so that might be the way to go use free picks from handicapping sites to give you an edge. There are many of them just google it…
