Back by popular demand!
(Lavaland asked in person at Saturday night’s Canucks-Ducks pre-season game, and ScientistMother asked on Twitter this morning. They’re both popular, right?!)
I’m going to use the CBC pool this year, because the Sportsnet one doesn’t seem to be up yet AND because the CBC one runs into the playoffs. It’s basically the same system as we’re all used to, except that you get to pick three players each week (one forward, one defenseman and one goalie) as your “stars”; your star players earn you double points for that week.
It’s possible that you’ll need to enter a Canadian address in order to play (I’m using an existing account and can’t remember what they asked for when I signed up), but I’m sure that won’t be a problem. It’s highly likely that non-Canadians won’t be eligible to win the car that’s offered as first prize, but a) none of us are likely to get anywhere near the top 100 anyway, and b) bragging rights are worth more (100% science FACT) and have a smaller carbon footprint.
