Jibblescribbits 3rd annual Playoff Pool

Yes I'm running one. It's about 1/2 way set-up, and I'll have the other 1/2 set up tonight. You can get a head start on registration by going here and signing up (NOTICE: Only the Western Conference is set-up right now. I will do the Eastern Conference this evening (4/12/09)). UPDATE: Everything is set to go. All 16 teams are uploaded and ready to be picked.

Make sure you scroll to the "playoffs" and don't stay on the default "regular".

Rules are the same as the last 2 years:

Rules: Choose 1 player from each playoff team. Your team must also be made up of:

10 Forwards
4 Defense
2 Goalies

Notes a) Because the hosting site is limited, I can't set up the pool to get enforce this, I have to do i manually. Please make sure you select this makeup.
b) It's a good idea to use your goalie picks on teams you think will go deep, and use your defensemen picks on teams you think will be eliminated early. The reason for this will be spelled out in other rules.

Scoring: The scoring will be as follows:
1 point for a goal
1 point for an assist
1 point for a win
2 additional points for a Shutout (yes a shutout is worth 3)

Example: Here's an example roster

Patrice Brisbois- D (Mon)
Ty Conklin - G (PIT)
Matt Bradley - F (WSH)
Dainius Zubris - F (NJ)
Chris Drury - F (NYR)
Jim Dowd - F (PHI)
Dean McAmmond - F (OTT)
Glen Murray - F (BOS)
Dallas Drake - F (DET)
Sandis Ozolinsh- D (SJ)
Martin Skoula - D (MIN)
Brad May - F (ANH)
Steve Ott- F (DAL)
Jose Theodore- G (COL)
Stephane Yelle - F (CGY)
Greg De Vries - D (NSH)

(Ed Note: Please note these are last years teams, but the idea is the same. One player from each playoff team.)

16 players: 4D, 2G, 10F and all on a different team If you are not careful and select more forwards or goalies than allowed I'll have to disqualify you, so please double-check your rosters.

Let's have fun with this. I'll give a post to the winner, and if the winner doesn't want that, we can come up with something even if it's humiliating me in some way.


  1. I'm in to defend my championship. Bring it on suckers.

    I never did use my 'free post'... hmmmm...

  2. I will certainly allow taunting as a form of your free post.

  3. Ohh, great! Give him ideas why don't you...

  4. And Taunting of Mike @MHH is strongly encouraged

  5. the two bonus points for a shutout win are not registering again this year. Lundqvist posted a shutout in game 2 and I only got one point. Do you have the shootout win (SOW) category selected by mistake?
