Meet the competition

Just an FYI for anyone in one of my hockey pools this year — this is the sort of thing you're up against:
Now as you go about this critical task, be sure to take those “Top 10 centers” lists with a grain of salt. While one person’s listing may be appropriate for a standard league, the customized nature of fantasy hockey means that if you’re going to get the best value of the draft board, you need to tailor your rankings to your specific situation. It takes a little bit of work, but it’s well worth the effort.

The key here is to take the scoring categories that determine your league’s weekly results, and weigh your player projections accordingly.
And here come the spreadsheets.

Big draft goes on Saturday afternoon. I doubt Dirk leaves his house between now and then.

now that's my kind of guy.

Always trying to figure out a new way to analyze in preparation for the pools. Not sure which of the two I enjoy more, the pool, or the tweaking of an excel spreadsheet.

And with a bit of luck, I may be sending the Mrs. and the Little Forecheckers out of town Saturday, James. There's nothing like to trying to do a live draft while fielding requests for peanut butter sandwiches and brownies.

BTW, you'll want to update my link above to KK, where all the stuff is getting posted going forward.

Pffffft. I actually wanted Jeff Glass as my #2 goalie.
