Join Our AUS Men's Hockey Pool

Think you know AUS hockey?  Put your skills to the test by joining our open-invitation, free AUS Hockey Pool.  There's no money at stake, just bragging rights.  We'll track the results of all competitors by posting weekly standings.  The winner will have the right to lay claim to the title of "World's Greatest AUS Hockey Mind" and mock the inferior hockey knowledge of the losers. 

Rules:
This will be a "Box Pool".  Simply download our pool selection sheet, and create your 12-player team by selecting a player from each of the 12 boxes.  When you're done filling out the sheet, attach it to an email and return it to us at unbhockeyfans.com@gmail.com

Scoring:
Forwards & Defencemen
Goal = 1 point
Assist = 1 point

Goalies
Goal = 1 point
Assist = 1 point
Win = 2 points
Overtime/Shootout Loss = 1 point
Shutout = 2 points

Trades:
We will allow you to make 2 trades prior to January 1, 2010.  When trading a player, it must be with a player from the same box.  If you decide you wish to trade a player, you must send an email to unbhockeyfans.com@gmail.com and specify the box, old player, and new player you want to add.

You will keep the points obtained by the player you're trading up to the day of the trade. The incoming player will start to earn points for your team once he is on your roster, but points previously obtained before the trade will not count towards your team total.

Deadline for Submission:
We will accept participants until 5 PM AST on Monday, October 19th. Since the AUS season begins on Friday, October 16, submissions made after 7 PM AST on October 16 will be penalized 1 point per player, for every game that player's team has played.

Stats:
We will use the AUS website stats as the official authority.  If you feel an error has been made, it probably has.  Just drop us a line and we'll look into it and make any necessary corrections as soon as possible.

This pool is open on a first come, first serve basis.  We reserve the right to cap participation at any time.  We welcome fans from anywhere, from any team. Support AUS hockey!
 
Good luck!

Great job gang!

I might add that if you didn't feel like giving Bill Gates any more money, and you don't use bootleg software ... well then you should download a copy of the freeware OpenOffice.org from the website, you guessed it, OpenOffice.org.

I've been using this Office-like software for years, and you can open and edit all of your Excel, Word and PowerPoint files ... for FREE! Plus you can save your documents as a PDF, a feature which Microsoft only adopted recently.

Quick question... are there any serious injuries that we should know about before making our picks?

Thanks for this. I know I'd expressed interest in something like this last year so I'm glad to see it's come along.

I've got to finish my NHL pool tonight so maybe I'll make my picks for this one tomorrow. ;)

Any chance to take down SqrlH8tr is a chance I revel in :-)

When are you going to start putting udates up for rankings?

UNBhockeyfans.com said...

We expect to have the first rankings up by mid-week (Tuesday or Wednesday) give or take a day...we are still accepting new entries until Monday so we have to allow for that.

We'll make an announcement when things are ready...stay tuned.
