Silver Seven 2017 Playoff Pool

A fun pool to make the playoffs watchable when Ottawa isn't playing!

To mark the start of the NHL playoffs, we will be running a playoff pool. It is pretty simple. There are 10 groups with 10 players each. You pick one player from each group.

The scoring is two points for a goal and one point for an assist. The players are chosen roughly in order of points/game among those who finished in the top 200 in the league in total points. I say roughly because the groups were chosen before all the games finished last night.

The prizes will be given to the first and second place finisher. In the case of a tie, it will be broken by the person closest (either high or low) to the tiebreaking question.

Note you must be a member of the blog to be eligible for a prize.

The deadline to enter is by 7:00 p.m. eastern time on Wednesday.
