    The Official Unofficial BDC 2013 Hockey Pool

    *EDIT!!!!! GROUP 22 HAS BEEN CHANGED!!!!! IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED YOUR ANSWERS PLEASE AMEND THEM (EXCEPT FOR BIM, WHO CAN KEEP HIS CHOICE BECAUSE I FOUND IT FUNNY. if you want to pick a bruins not mentioned ANYWHERE in the poolas long as they are not Kelly, Marchand, Peverley, Seidenberg , Ference or Hamilton, I will allow it. Sorry Stanley, no goalies)

     

    So here it is folks, our Official Unofficial Hockey Pool for the 2013 season. Below are a total of 22 groups, with each particpant picking one player from each group. Groups 1-18 and 21-22, will be judged on total points for the season, while groups 19 and 20 are the goalies, with the keepers getting 2 points for a win and 5 for a shutout. Each team, once you pick your players, will feature 4 centres, 4 LW's, 4 RW's, 6 D, 2 keepers, a rookie, and an extra Bruin.

    The groupings were all based on TSN's points projections for each position for the total season, so if you don't like some of the match-ups, don't blame me, blame Bob MacKenzie et al. (though I did move a few around to get more Bruins in the mix).

    Just post your picks in this thread, and I will tabulate all the teams and keep track of them during the season, with regular updates as to how everyone is doing. For space, don't bold your choices, delete the players in each category that you're not picking.

    In the event of a tie, the first tiebreaker will be total GF, and the second tiebreaker will be fewest GA by your goalies.

    All picks must be in by the first puck drop on January 19.

    So go ahead and make your picks, and we'll all find out who gets the Official Unofficial Hockey Pool bragging rights for the season.

    Four quick things as I was thinking about it.

    If a player you picked is traded prior to the 19th, I will allow you to change that pick as long as it is done before puck drop.

    If a player you picked is injured prior to the 19th, I will allow you to change that pick as long as it is done before puck drop.

    The second tiebreaker, to account for potential goalie injury, will be combined GAA for keepers, rather than total GA.

    Third tiebreaker if needed will be combined plus/minus.

    Red, great stuff, thanks! I've tried to get my wife to do fantasy hockey with me for years but she always claims she'll struggle to keep up with line changes due to injuries, match ups etc. This is a great alternative, with minimal effort for her. She doesn't have an account, so would it be ok if i posted one team for her and one forme under my name? Thanks!

    Sure just let me know which is which.

     

    Also, one last rule change - I will allow you to change a player if that player refuses to return to the NHL (ie Visnovsky, Kovalchuk) as long as the change is made prior to puck drop on January 19th.
