Ladies and Gentlemen, here's the 2006-07 UPP!

Lots of people e-mailed me in the last few weeks asking if the Ultimate Pool Preview would be back again this year… Well indeed, and here it is!

Once again here’s the ultimate tool to dominate your pool this season.

Last year due to the lockout, the quality and the depth of the UPP suffered from the lack of time in between the announce of a new CBA and the start of the season. This didn’t give me enough time to make it how I wanted it to be. However, due to the amazing number of requests it forced me to at least release a Beta version anyway.

This season I wanted to take the UPP to the next level, so I decided to hire a couple of guys (”hire” being a big word, since we all have put our time and energy for free in the project) to help me make it better.

And I promise you won’t be disappointed. If you liked to earlier versions, you’ll love the 2006-07 Ultimate Pool Preview.

Here is a quick list of what has been ADDED to what was already there in the past UPP‘s:

The Ultimate Pool Preview is in no way trying to replace pool magazines. In fact I view it more like a tool to complete those mags and give you an edge on your rivals who most likely have the same mag than you have. Those magazines cover lots of things and have lots of in-depth articles in them, the UPP covers only stats and projections but tries to be the best at it. So all in all, you should use the UPP to complete the hockey magazine that you bought for your pool.

For comments or questions, you can reach me at:

Thank you for your interest and good luck in your pools!

  2. Aetherial says:

    This is a pool preview sheet, not a pool entry form. It is a Microsoft Excel file. I beileve newer versions of Lotus can open it?

    Honestly, this is the best download ever. It is even a better download then mp3’s and porno.

    I salute the UPP team for all their work.

  6. CheesyPuffs says:

    Download limit exceeded. Would be nice if you could repost elsewhere (ie: don’t impose a limit on number of downloads).

  7. Lint07 says:

    Thanks for the kind words… it is really appreciated.

    I’m glad you like it.

  8. Lint07 says:

    Like it’s been stated already, this is NOT a hockey pool.

    It is a TOOL to help you win whatever pool you decide to join.

  9. RingoCalamity says:

    Umm…where’s the Rapidshare link?

  10. Devilsfan99 says:

    yeah, i was unable to find it. It would be appreciated if you could possible provide a link.

    -Thank you

  11. RingoCalamity says:

    Was just able to get it via the download link in the original post, so if that wasn’t working for anybody before, try again now.

    Good write up, thanks for all the hard work!

  12. Aetherial says:
