Mike (Jan 1): Happy New Year! Congrats binionben winning the final week. Blades26 won the overall by a point over Elion7 and tomcatmc. I will open a new pool this week for the second half of the NHL season.
Mike (Dec 29 '22): Yep, that was it exactly, and just updated it. I still have a quirk in the last week of a pool where it defaults to the overall results as opposed to the current week. Haven't figured that out yet.
test1234 (Dec 28 '22): Mike, in the rules page I noticed you had December 31, 2023. Could that explain why it didn't find this week's pick page. When you click Overall in the table, and click Dec-31 it had Sun Dec 31.
Mike (Dec 28 '22): Can't find this week's pick page? Click Overall in the table, and then click Dec-31 in the overall results table.
Mike (Dec 5 '22): That was me this week Ben. I was up, got distracted with Christmas lights and totally missed the early start deadline.
binionben (Dec 3 '22): some cant get out of bed to pick early games mike
Mike (Nov 6 '22): Fair number of upsets. Too Tall Paul wins the week.
Mike (Nov 5 '22): 1:00, 2:00, 3:00, and 4:00 early starts today.
Mike (Oct 30 '22): Some upsets. Blades26 wins the week on the tie-breaker.
Mike (Oct 26 '22): Can we call it after 2 weeks? These are the best my hockey picks have ever been and it surely won't keep up.
Mike (Sep 27 '22): Mike updated the pool
Mike (Sep 27 '22): Huh, I tried to look that up and everything I read was regular season starts on the 7th. NHL.com site wasn't very clear identifying preseason from regular season games. I'll check it out.
test1234 (Sep 26 '22): Mike, not sure if you notice or did it by design but other than Nashville-San Jose in Europe, all the games on October 8 are actually Pre-season games. The first full slate Saturday night for regular season is October 15th.
Mike (Sep 26 '22): Mike created the pool

Make sure to clearly state the name of the pool, your username, entry number, week of the pool and picks. The email must be received time stamped prior to the deadline and from the email account associated with your username.

We take no responsibility for email being delayed past the deadline or not being delivered. Everyone should use the online system to make their picks and only send an email in the case of an emergency.
