Default Calgary Puck Hockey Pool

Just checking to see if anyone might be interested in doing a more in depth hockey pool. It would just be done on here and it would be strictly for bragging rights. We would need 30 people as each person would be the GM of an NHL team. All teams would be drafted and would have to fit within the salary cap. We would have trades, waivers and all that. We would have farm teams as well, so any players drafted this past weekend would be picked as well. I know hockey pools aren't really a thing here, but this could be fun if enough people are interested. I figured its best to start getting this out there now because I know this would take a long time to complete and this gives us over 3 months.

Oh I am very familiar with CPHL. This would be based strictly on real life points. I know some of you guys would rather get hit the nuts instead of going to CDC, but this is kind of what I am looking at doing. Don't want to do it as in depth, but something similar.

And before you go off saying you will never click on that I am just going to say that these guys are really good and they never go anywhere else on that forum besides the link I sent. The link is just to send you guys an idea on how the pool would work and to see if maybe we can have some interest.

Remember that it would be a fantasy draft so your teams would be completely different then the real teams.

Over 5 years ago a group of CPers did the same thing.. we have since expanded to three leagues (points-only, roto, dynasty) and it has been a ton of fun.

As Flamestalker noted we've had a similar league running for 5 years now. We have lots of lessons learned rom the initial draft and from the last 5 years. It's a ton of effort to get off the ground and you need some really committed guys through the draft process.

I'm too busy running Hit The Net but feel free to get in touch if you get this off the ground and I can provide some suggestions. You can also head over to our site and post your questions there as we have a bunch of CPers in the league who can share their knowledge.
