Hockey Pool Anyone?

With the hockey season around the corner I am beginning to think fantasy. One idea that has run through my head is to run a hockey pool with my fellow bloggers and readers where the concept would be a $10 BV entry fee. Each person would put up a card (or a pack) with a $10 value and the winner of the pool would get a card/pack from each of the losing players.

I am not sure if this will get off the ground or not and you wouldn't need to pay up until the end. You can even keep the card a secret until the end too if you like. I am just trying to see if there is enough interest out there to participate. I am pretty open to different pool ideas, my initial thought was a draft (through sportsline or yahoo or whatever) and go from there. Let me know if you are interested and if you have an idea on how it should be run, please share. We could even do a keeper league if there are some die-hards out there too.

I would like a total of 10 contestants but of course if there is interest for more that is cool too. So if you are interested or in no matter what, let me know!


  1. Not to steal your thunder or anything, but last season Captain Canuck did a fantasy hockey league on Yahoo! that was all hockey bloggers.

    I had a blast. I never played fantasy sports before, and it was fun to compete against the same people who's blogs I read and that I trade cards with.

    I think you and Canuck should join forces here. That way, we'd have more hockey bloggers in the fold and there would be more competitors. And I would only have to beat DFG 6 times instead of 12 times per season :)

    Also, I'd be up for contributing a $10 card for this effort.

  2. Great idea Sal, did you want to join forces on this Canuck? Your format and my entry price?

  3. Now you guys are going to force me to start a blog!

    I'm in for a $10 BV entry fee!

  4. Never played fantasy hockey before, I'll probably suck but I'd be willing to give it a shot.

  5. Dave we will also we running our own Hockey Pool on Yahoo and there is a spot for you.
