I have received a number of emails asking about the HBIC Playoff Pool, and I'm happy to say that it will return for its fifth installment this spring! Prizes are already being procured, and I can say that this may be another great year in terms of prizing for those who participate. At least NHL jersey is already being held for the event, a number of pieces of Jets merchandise is in the shwag bag already, and I'm working on other stuff for the offering - books, DVDs, trinkets, and the likes.
The pool will go live once the match-ups in the playoffs have bee set. I'll publish a spreadsheet again to make my life easier in marking the entries so that I don't get all sorts of different formats. That being said, the same format for the pool will be used: winning team, number of games, and game-winning goal scorers will be your tools for scoring points. It all comes down to your prognostications and predictions in terms of how many points you will score.
Keep your eyes on this site for the "go live" date for the pool. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, and anyone else you may think will want to enter. After all, like the previous four HBIC Playoff Pools, it's FREE! Nothing better than getting something for
... er, predicting, so put your thinking caps on, study your stats and trends, and get ready to dive into the pool!
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
