SportsNet Fantasy Hockey is back, and it's the same format we've enjoyed in past years...

The regular season starts soon, so go sign up at SportsNet (you can use last years log-in, they retained that info). Or create a new account... it's free, and easy.

The ehMac group pool is now active...
Group Name: ehMac
Password: jockstrap

Just go to the Group Membership page, choose "ehMac" in the "select a group" section, and enter the password.

There was some confusion this year about a change in the pool format that SportsNet was to use. But it turns out it's exactly the same as before.

The pick deadline for week 1 is: 7:00 PM ET on Thursday, Oct. 9, 2008

It would be nice to get a good turnout from ehMac hockey fans. The more the merrier, so spread the word. :)

Seems to be the old format. Good.

Well I'm in. Even though I haven't been following hockey that much the past few years and barley know most names I will use the random / fluke approach. Maybe this will get me motivated to pay attention to some games.

gw, BMUP is the universal warning -- "Beware, Major Uplifting Possible". Seems like "speed bumps" told people to speed over the bumps.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Dr.G. For some reason I always do better in the Playoff format. I'm always trying to keep up with the rest of you during the regular season

I am banking on you, Kami. I bet my son, rage_lakers, that I would finish higher than him. Then, we had to pick the person who would finish first. I chose you, and he chose gw.

For some reason, I am not really in to this pool in an excitment sort of way. Baseball and the elections seem to have my focus.

I promise to make ridiculously bad choices at at least 3 critical junctures during this season. :yikes:

Because that's just... um, well... that's just what I do! :eek:

The More The Merrier...

Hey folks, how do we get more people on board in this pool? It's way more fun when there's, say, 20 or even 30 people involved. (I'm dreaming aren't I?)

I think some people find it intimidating to join a hockey pool. But the SportsNet interface is so user friendly that it makes it fun and easy. I wish we could get that message out to any fence-sitters that might be around. Any thoughts, with only 10 days to go? :confused:

gw, we could offer a free doxie pup to the top five winners this year. Or, we could give them a lifetime membership to The Shang. Just a thought.

Maybe we should encourage people to ask friends & family members to join. No reason that they have to be ehMac citizens.

There, I'm encouraging just that. :D

Good idea, gw. That's how I got my son to join.

We could use more like him. ;)

Both Stephen and yours truly are really busy these days, so I would not expect any great strides forward from either of us. Still, it is fun to try each week. We shall see.

Which really means... you'll both do very well, as always. ;)
