2018 Playoff Pool Instructions

Post by Big M Bob » Tue Apr 10, 2018 11:55 am

Here is what you should do with your playoff pool roster.

The best thing to do is keep it private so that the secret player who will win if for you won't be on anybody else's roster.

Send your roster in private to Daniel with a private message at Slack or in a PM here at the AHL forum. In a pinch you can e-mail it to me if needed.

The deadline is when the puck drops for the first NHL playoff game on Wednesday.

Playoff Pool Rules

Playoff Pool-

Everyone gets a budget of $50 to spend on a maximum of 8 forwards, 6 defensemen and two goalies for a 16 player maximum roster. You do not have to ice a full roster but you cannot exceed the maximum number of players in any category.
You can spend all $50 on 8 forwards if you choose to. If you choose Sidney Crosby, others can also choose him. He isn't yours exclusively.

The price for each player/goalie will be their contract for the 2017-18 season. If you choose Sidney Crosby that will cost you $15.00 from your budget leaving you with $35.00 to ice the rest of your team.

Goals and assists will count equally as one point. For goalies, each win gets you 2 points, a loss is -1, a series win is 2 points, a series loss is -1. So if Chicago beats St.Louis 4-2 in the first round, Chicago would earn you 8 points. St.Louis would cost you 1 point.

If you choose two goalies, both goalies count in every round as does every forward and defensemen you choose. You choose a team only once prior to the beginning of the first playoff game.

Top 4 point totals make the money.

A reminder that only players who are on an AHL team roster can be picked for the pool.
