the ULTIMATE POOL PREVIEW 03-04 is now up for grabs!!!

There it is, poolers, the ULTIMATE POOL PREVIEW!!!What is it, again? Well basically, it’s a tool for all the poolers outthere that can complete or even replace all the 10$ hockey guides you can find.


340 players with individuals 2002-2003 stats including ice-time average and PP time average plus all the projected points by guides such as: The Hockey News, McKeen’s, Forecaster & The Sporting News (TSN).

You’ll also be able to quickly see if a player is in his final contract year or his first contract year. There are also team rankings and goalie rankings with last year stats and next year projections. All the unsigned and injured players are clearly listed as well.

New feature this year: I added a ”Top Players” section where you can easily find the top-6 forwards, top-3 d-man and #1 goalie of each team for quick searches when drafting in a live pool.

Like I stated in the previous post, it really works: I have the stats to prove it, it comes really close to what kind of season the players will have next year and it’s why it is the ULTIMATE POOL PREVIEW!

As a long time pooler myself, I included all the little things that make the difference, all the things that will help help you win your pool or help you quickly choose between 2 players for example.

even though it took me weeks of efforts and cost me a bit of money, I am gladly giving it away to whoever might be interested, the only thing I ask for is that the person receiving it might be kind enough to review it and give me his/her thoughts so I can upgrade it even more next time. So far I only received great comments from people who reviewed it so check it out and see for yourself!

you can ask for it by PM’ing me or Mikster or you can also drop me an email to and I’ll send the file to you all.



Satisfied customers so far:

”After only a quick look i have only 1 thing to say WOW. This looks great.” -Trademan

”It is an interesting mix of stats and projections. The wildly different player

projections does seem to give a good mix” -CWThrash

”I think you did a more than….spectacular job. You really hit it bud, awesome

job.” -Mikster

Thank you to the people who kindly reviewed the UPP 03-04!

    I have never seen anyone put so much time and effort, hard work, into something such as this. I’ve seen it, Trademan has seen it and it’s nothing of what I expected. Great charts, and and i highly recommend taking a look at it.

    I’d seriously give it 5 stars, honestly.

  2. Lint07 says:

    Forgot to add… It is also printer friendly so you can bring it easily to your hockey pools.

  3. titans says:

    You know what I don’t like??? Public pools! I don’t care how much chlorine they pump in em’…your still swimming in some kids piss!

  4. Lint07 says:


    The number of people asking for it is TOTTALLY UNREAL! Let’s now hope it lives up to it’s expectactions! πŸ˜€

    I’d like to thank everyone for their interest in my work, it is really appreciated. Thank you!

  5. BlueShirts says:

    What the F! program do you use to open this or look at it

  6. Lint07 says:

    Microsoft Excel

  7. BlueShirts says:

    damn now i gotta install it lol! but im sure its worth it THANX!

  8. BlueShirts says:

    damn now i gotta install it lol! but im sure its worth it THANX!

  9. Lint07 says:

    For those not familiar with ”Excel” there are 4 sections in the file: PLAYERS, TEAMS, GOALIES and TOP PLAYERS.

    You can see each sections by changing them at the bottom left of your screen.

  10. Kashin says:

    Sure its good. Doing a deep 600 man 20 team fantasy draft sat night. Look foward to using it.

  11. rob_b1980 says:

    I also recommend taking a look at this, it has all the stats about every player. Again, I highly recommend this

  12. TheDoors says:

    Well, Well, Who says hard work doesn’t pay off?

    Over looking this it really shows how much hard work was put in this, and it reflects on how helpfull it really is. What I enjoy the most about this is how has all those stats from all those so called “$10” experts and sums them up all neatly on one simple and very accesible file. The most impressive feature this provides is it lets your mind goto work, figuring out who the stars will be on your own instead of providing a neat little power rankings. Great work, someone send this man a donation.

  13. Lint07 says:

    hehe πŸ™‚

    thanx that was nice!

  14. Kashin says:

    Great. Just wandering if they have any of the rookies or projected rookies.

    I like the fact especially when certain things are highlighted to stand out.

    It gives everything one needs. Its like a computer hockey preview. (it is).

    Even though it isnt, it is something worth to be sold and bought.

  15. Habfan1234 says:

    Most definatley a lot of effort and hard work went into this. A comendable job was done in the making of these lists and should be looked at by all poolies. Once again, great job Lint07.

  16. Kewl says:

    It’s not much to look at, but it sure has all the info you need.

  17. RickHuffy says:

    You know that if everyone here took up the Mormon way, there would not be the tirades that we witness on a daily basis.

    If everyone would just donate to your local Mormon parish instead of taking out your anger on the site, we would all be better people. Hockey is a brutal and violent sport that brings out the worst in people, however I think it has it’s advantages when your favorite team signs Selanne and Kariya.

    Just please end off each posting with saying something nice about a fellow member and remeber the way of the Mormon is the path to redemption!

  18. GretsNYR99 says:

    Fuck the mormons you moron. Your comments aren’t even hockey related and your mindless blabbering has gotten tired. Do your recruiting somewhere else. No one gives a shit about what you think and a far as I am concerned you aren’t even as high as a curb.

  19. defenestrate says:

    That explains a lot about you…

  20. G_Money says:

    ha ha ha lol


  21. Glen says:

    This is extremely impressive. One of the most useful pieces of information regarding hockey I’ve ever seen drawn out. Thanks, this should help bring in a few bills.

  22. bigmdaw says:

    Not as great as he says it is. All he does is average the ratings from other guides. Pages have no cross refrences in them, so if you try to add your own data, you can’t see the top players on each team, etc. Must be very early in the development stages of this. Ice time is listed, but not used in any calculations. The only thing impressive about it is that he took the time to type all of it.

  23. Lint07 says:

    I don’t think Ice time should be used into the calculation. It is more an aditional tool for a pooler to decide between 2 players.

    I do not think it is ”THAT GREAT” All I claim is that you can have it for free instead of buying all the hockey guides.

    For your info, it is my 3rd year doing it.

  24. mikster says:

    For crying out loud….

    What is wrong with you?

  25. mikster says:

    hehe, you think you can pull something like that?

  26. dkball7 says:

    Lint is the Man!!!!!

  27. cementhands says:

    Really good job! I like the fact that you have 4 projection sources and average them out. However, I’m going to have another average column without the Forcaster to see what the results are. I’d like to know what the hell they are smoking… Some of their forcasts seem pretty unrealistic… (example, Havlat, LeCavalier, Richards to name a few).

    For consideration: Maybe include the age of the player. I sometimes take that into consideration when choosing a player. Another nice thing would be trends. I did a spreadsheet this year on all players with their stats from the previous 3 years to see the point trends. I’m not good in stats by any means, but it does paint a nice picture. For example, I always liked Recchi, but for the last 3 years he as progressively gotten worse.

    I’d love to know where you got the contract status. That is a must for hockey poolers!

    Great job!

  28. Lint07 says:

    Thanx for the comments and suggestions it is extremely appreciated! I have VERY GOOD ideas/projects for my next release (hopefully next year, but I’ll see what happens with the lock-out) and I hope to be able to make them all work because you guessed it, IT REALLY IS time consuming… just talk to my girlfriend who was going crazy at times πŸ˜‰

    As for the contract things I mainly used the McKeen’s hockey yearbook and double-checked everything with… I had to check players one-by-one.

  29. cementhands says:

    That’s really great! I’m glad you did it instead of me for the contract! πŸ™‚ Keep up the good work!

  30. Kewl says:

    What? I can’t put down a simple website address?

  31. Kewl says:

    BTW that was addressed too Grets.
