The nice folks at www.VintageVantage.com have accepted to sponsor our contests again this year. Go check out their shirts, they’re awesome!

CONTEST #1
THE 2006-07 HTR HOCKEY POOL

Here’s how the pool works:

First, you have to download the official file to enter the pool.

CLICK HERE!

The pool is pretty simple: You have 30 rounds, and you have to choose 1 player per round. At the end, you’ll have a total of 20 forwards, 7 defensemen, 2 goalies and 1 team.

And that’s it, when you’re done you send it all to me at:

    HTRPool@Yahoo.ca

The pool work as follow:

Players (forwards/defensemen)
Goal = 1pt
Assist = 1pt

Goalies
Win = 2pts
OTLoss = 1pt
Shutout = 2 pts (added to the win)

Teams
Win = 2 pts
OtLoss = 1pt

You will be able to trade 2 players before the AllStar break.

CONTEST #2
THE 2006-07 HTR STANDINGS PREDICTIONS CONTEST

Here’s the official file to enter the contest

CLICK HERE!

All you have to do is predict both the Eastern and Western conference final standings for the 2006-07 season.

    how do i download that file once i’m at megashare?

  2. Lint07 says:

    You wait 10seconds and then scroll down… there should be a ”DOWNLOAD NOW” button.

  3. Lint07 says:

    actually it’s ”CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD”

  4. Lint07 says:

    To download each file, once you are at the site you have to wait 10seconds and then scroll down.

    there will be a ”CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD” button.

  5. Aetherial says:

    At player trade time, I assume you mean drop one player from a category and pick up a different player in the same category?

  6. BruinsNut says:

    Is it just me or when I click on the download me now link it just does a never ending loop and doesnt download??

  7. Lint07 says:

    received 40 entries so far so I’m guessing it’s just you 😉

    let me know if you’restill having problems d/loading it.

  8. 19AVSFANFoLIFE19 says:

    u got mine i hope?

  9. flyersfan21 says:

    had no problem with downloading contest 2 but i am having problems downloading contest 1

  10. flyersfan21 says:

    Is contest 1 in an Excel format because I keep getting a file that open with Explorer.

  11. Lint07 says:

    I tried d/loading it myself and it works fine.

    send me an email if you still can’t get it. I’ll hook you up.

  12. Lint07 says:

    yup. but of em.

    to answer your question, the file with all the entries for the Standings contest will be posted on HTR when the season starts.

  13. Yoshy says:

    the thing i downloaded wont open, what can i open it with?

  14. 19AVSFANFoLIFE19 says:

    monthly weekly daily? sorry just curious

  15. 19AVSFANFoLIFE19 says:

    excel for both files.

  16. Lint07 says:

    I meant ”both”, not ”but” I guess you got it.

    Well I plan on releasing the official list of predictions for everyone to follow it, and since the standings will be constantly changing I guess I will update the scores some times during the season… no idea how many though.

  17. Yoshy says:

    i downloaded the Excel demo, from downloads.com…and it doesnt open in it .. it says unable to open..?

  18. bruinfan37 says:

    How do you want it sent? That same file with each box somehow filled in? Or send just a regular email with the list of players?

  19. bruinfan37 says:

    I’m just curious as to why there is no Zdeno Chara?

  20. Gretzkin says:

    Aside from Zdeno Chara being a valid question, you guys are a bunch of morons….

    You’ve been downloading porn all this time, but you can’t download an Excel Spreadsheet, and if you can, don’t know how to use it?

  21. Lint07 says:

    forgot him. Thought I had him in it.

    too bad.

  22. Lint07 says:

    yeah, check the boxes

  23. nightmare3020 says:

    thats odd because the “porn” i looked at was a bunch of hockey player names with boxes next to them

    porn has really changed through time i guess

  24. Yoshy says:

    FINALLY GOT IT TO WORK, THX MAN..now, i dont get the boxes…how does the pool #1 work..?

    i really dont seem to understand..how many players do you pick per round?

  25. Lazarus says:

    those using the excel veiwer like myself can’t modify the file, so we can’t fill in the boxes, would it be too much of a hassle for you to recieve a written list of the player we select?

  26. Lint07 says:

    nah I receive those anyways go ahead and sent it the way you want it to.

  27. Lint07 says:

    1 player per round, as simple as that.

  28. Lazarus says:

    sounds good, i’ll have mine to you shortly

  29. Yoshy says:

    kk kool, got it all done sent it the guy.

  30. Hoobey says:

    Will the you guys be using officepools again this season?

  31. Lint07 says:

    yes.

    the login will be posted shortly

  32. Yoshy says:

    when in the world can we join.. wow.

  33. cidade18 says:

    It says that people have until oct.3 to join. today is the last day so expect the login to be posted later today or some time tomorrow. i know how you feel, i wanna see my picks already.

  34. Lint07 says:

    Actually, it takes a LOOOONG time to separates entries from each other (those that are good, those that miss something in them, etc.) and then add them on the site.

    Add to that the fact that I have a day job so I’ll try to give it a go on friday and enter every single entry on Officepools.

    I’ll keep you guys posted anyway.

  35. cidade18 says:

    oh ok, thanks for the update. i understand your situation. its tough to run a hockey pool, especially start one with tons of different emails to manage and still maintain a job. im looking forward to the pool.

  36. viper29_ca says:

    Just wondering if the HTR Pool has gotten off the ground yet, and what the login in for OfficePools is. Since I entered my pics long before the Oct. 3 deadline, and have yet to hear back, or see anything on the site here about it.

    Just wondering!!
