2010 - 2011 Hockey Pool Thread

I thought a pool could be started on this side of the board as well. So, after some asking around and 'google translating' nearly half of the French thread, this is what I've come up with. I'd like to preface by saying that I am not an expert at this but I like to organize and I'm committed to this. Right now, I'd just like to open this to discussion here about what is going to happen. Then the thread will become our main thread for the pool. If everything goes well, this is how things should work.

Draft

  • On a specific day (I'll mention when before the day arrives) the thread will be open to participants. On a first come, first serve basis, the first 15 members to say they would like to participate are in.
  • Once I have all the names, I will literally do a random draw on my end to number everyone 1 to 15. There will be a draft day (or days if need be) with 8 rounds. The order that was drawn will be the order the members choose their player. After everyone has chosen in the first round, the order will be reversed. Alternating from round to round. You can choose any position in any round when it is your turn. In the end, you should end up with 5 forwards, 2 defence and 1 goalie.
  • The thread will be monitored during draft day so that it can go smoothly and everyone knows the picks. I'll send out reminders the day before and if needed during the draft day for people to make their selections. If you find that you are not available to make the selection, PM me a list of picks and I'll pick the highest remaining player available for you.
  • The draft will concede when everyone has made their pick.

Points

  • 1 point per every actual point scored by the forwards and defence
  • 2 points per win by a goalie and 5 points for a shutout
  • The points will be updated every Sunday giver or take. If I find this to be too difficult I might make it every two weeks.

Trades

  • I'm hoping that trades will be at a minimum, but if you would like to do one, first please notify the person through PM with your trade proposal and come to a decision amongst yourselves.
  • If the trade is a go then PM me and I'll update on this thread and on a master list.
  • Selections will not be involved in trades.

So here it is, if there is anything I am blatantly leaving out please say so. I'm not entirely open to the yahoo route but I have no qualms with actually having to do the work for this here. The only area I think I'm lacking is point totals and being able to track that. Again, I don't mind doing that either. One things that I was thinking of when putting this together is if the points for goalies would change so that they go 3 points for a regulation win, 2 points for an OT win and 1 point for a SO win. Or 1 point for an OT win and 2 for a SO since you could argue there's more focus on the goalie. Just a thought.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated!!

Thanks

I'm interested :) sounds like a lot of work for you.

I'm up for the challenge.

______________

What I'm thinking is this:

-Sign up on the 13th starting @ 10am

-Daft on 16th @ noon

So on the 12th I'll put a notice here to remind members of the sign up. The Starting at 10 the next day, the first 14 (15 being me) to say they want to participate will be officially in. Either that, or I just go by whoever has already mentioned that they'd like to participate. And publicly says its open. I wanted to make sure that I had everything set before I got 14 members so there was some sort of structure. Any suggestions?

Regarding the draft, I'll send reminders to the 14 memers the a day or two before.

Well if we go by those that have mentioned they want to participate, you can count me in. Otherwise, I'll be there at 10:00 (Eastern Time?) on Thursday :)

so that's 8 am for moi?

Ummmm, is that too early :unsure: Don't answer that.

Yes EST. If I count the people who already said they'd be interested, I have 5 that leaves 10 from now until the draft. Quite frankly, I don't think there will be droves of people wanting to sign up so that's why I think it's be ok to do it on the 13th. Which is why I think you'd still be able to sign up even if you're not right here at 10 (or 8)

Right now, i think I'm just going to say it's open and if you want to, say so here. Yah, I'm just going to do that. Sorry it this to make up my mind.

Me!

There is lots of time, so even if we are not all on at the same time, at least we have time to do this.

PS Are you sure you want to have trades involved?

Personally, I didn't want them but I wanted to stick to what was done on the French side as much as possible becuase it seemed to work. I don't think there would be that many anyways so I kept the option open. Do you think a lot of trades would happen? I mean, there's only 15 of us and only 8 players each and it's not like you can trade for a player that's not in play...

8 spots left.

hmmm, how about waivers and that stuff. Say a player on your team gets injured, are we allowed to drop them and pick up someone else that's available??? or if a free agent is "hot" in real life, can we drop someone and pick him up??? Is we can, how do we do it?? Should we just pm you and you can update the team or should we do that part???

I kinda wanted to stay away from things like this. I want a more simpler approach although I do get what you're getting at.

This is how it'll work:

-If a player becomes injured that you've picked you can either a) Drop the player and pick a new undrafted player. OR b ) you can keep the player (Note: you cannot go back to the injured player you dropped after they recover so you make a choice to either keep them or not. This decision needs to be made as soon as you are aware that they are injured. You don't have to notify me if you are going to keep them, a note can be put beside the playres name, only if you are going to drop them)

-There will be no other movement of players except for injury or trade (Again, this is only with players that are already active between members. There won't be multiple member trades nor will there be multiple player trades. Member to member, player for player.). Both of which I need to be notified. PM would be prefered. But I'll keep the thread up to date.

I wanna participate but i have a doctors appointment at 10 on Thursday damn T_T

It's ok, I'm not going to do the sign up thing on Thursday. <- this statement is for everyone. I don't want to seem like I'm 'yelling' a you or anything :lol:

So I'll put you down.

I'm in beaubie.

I'll be able to help you with the updates during the season if you need it once in a while.

Thank you SO much for that offer. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to get through most of it, but there might be sometimes I need some help, so it's very much appreciated.

I'd love to be in, but if the draft is on a week-day, before 6:00 pm (approx.), then I'm working (unless it's a rain-day). <_< Hmm...

Side note...(my 2 cents) - Less trades the easier, but whatever. Is there a limit on trades? Deadline (on gamedays)?

- Why not have more than 15 participants? Curious why "15"... I'm sure a lot of people would like to go in it.

Anyways... Great idea, and hope it'll work out for me. :D
