2011 Putting On The Foil Hockey Pool Discussion

By , July 28, 2011 11:54 am
The 3rd annual POTF Hockey Pool will have a new flavor...

The 3rd annual POTF Hockey Pool will have a new flavor...

So a new season is about to begin, and it’s time for the discussion about a hockey pool.

So far, Norweigan Oiler has brought up the topic of a “keeper” league. If you are unfamiliar with what a keeper league is, do a google search on that, but it involves keeping part of your roster from year to year.

We also have been discussing a trophy. In this case, we are going to have a virtual trophy, for sure. It will be a pic on the site somewhere (probably in the sidebar) that we’ll up date year to year to show the winners. It will be Stanley Cup style in the sense that it will maintain a list of all winners (although it will look completely different). We’re also considering a cheap-o prize. Maybe some POTF wear of some sort. But nothing has been decided there just yet. If you have ideas, let me know.

So, who is interested in a keeper pool? How about a standard pool if you don’t like keeper pools? Please vote once so we know what kind of interest there is…

Would you be interested in a POTF Hockey Pool this year?

MMS – Post Round 2 edition

Happy Friday 13th, everyone. Steve-O is away on vacation right now (in Mexico… there is a good chance he is currently being finger-banged by a Federale right now). So today, I present you with the MMS. Now, MMS once stood for Monday Morning Standings, but tradition has shown that these things never appear on Mondays… and who am I to break up tradition? Plus, with it being the playoffs, we decided we’d only release one MMS per round. So here it is… enjoy. Continue reading 'MMS – Post Round 2 edition'»

The 2010/11 Putting on the Foil regular season pool has concluded. Congratulations to Chucker who won the Foiled Again pool (the only one that mattered) and gr8one for winning the Foiled Again Too pool (the Women’s hockey of hockey pools… ohhhh I went there).

Here are the top 3 of each of the pools… the medal winners, if you will:

Foiled Again Top 3

Foiled Again Top 3

Foiled Again Too Top 3

Foiled Again Too Top 3

This week’s f— you goes to SamBrattus for somehow sneaking out a win over me for 3rd place in the Special Olympics pool. He’s the free spot on the bingo card all year, and somehow decides to show up when it matters…


Steve-O has arranged another playoff pool through Sportsnet. The deadline to have your lineups is Wednesday at 7:00PM ET. However, I have seen that change before, so get your lineups in ahead of time and tweak them later. You can even randomize them for now. Sign in and make your entries on the pool site here. Same as last year. Then be sure to join the group Steve-O created: Putting On The Foil. The password is potf. You can join the group first and make your entries later.. just make sure you join the group and have your roster soon, so you don’t miss out!

Monday Morning Standings

Happy Wednesday!  And now, for the Monday Morning Standings…

The Weak in Oil

Well the week wasn’t totally weak with a win in Anaheim, but that was about the only highlight.  Small improvements over the previous week in the GAA stat, but I don’t think that’s any indicator of a defensive recovery with the number of shots that have been sent Dubnyk’s way.  Belle has been reassigned so that Smid can return to the lineup.
