Jan 15: is this one finally over? We lost Ditka and IceBurn this week leaving only Benjamin and binionben alive. Benjamin got a late start in this one missing the first five weeks, so I am going to declare binionben our winner, Benjamin the consolation winner - both get trophies! These two and the rest of us will continue to duke it out in the new hockey survivor started this past weekend. So that is a wrap. Congrats Benjamin and binionben, and thanks everyone for playing!

Jan 1: We lost cneilson! He has the Oilers who were clearly making NYE plans instead of focused on the task at hand. Three picked the Ducks for the win and IceBurn got through with the Panthers. I didn't think we would wrap this up in 2017 so on we go. %more% - - -
Dec 28: You guys are too good. We've still got 5 alive, 4 with two strikes each and binionben with only a single. I was planning to wrap this up this week so we can start fresh in the New Year but no one is cooperating. Well good luck Saturday and then we will decide what to do depending how that plays out.

Dec 18: IceBurn forgot to make his pick and got assigned the Ducks ... remember, the default pick is alphabetical among teams not already chosen from 7:00pm Eastern games or later. They lost giving him a strike, while everyone else was right. We might need more than the two weeks left in 2017 to decide our survivor champ.

Dec 11: Well that was rather unexciting, wasn't it? All of you picked Columbus. Way to pick on the lowly Coyotes. And Blue Jackets won - only 1-0 - but everyone advances and on we go.
- - -
Dec 6: We lost wayjoy on his third strike picking the Blues, while Benjamin picked up his second thanks to the Devils. Everyone else got their pick right. We are down to five alive, two on their final strike, and I wonder if we will wrap this sucker up by Christmas.
- - -
Nov 27: Everyone who picked, picked right! We only lost eskimo21 twice on a couple a no-picks. Make sure to set you want the pick reminder emails in your profile. We are now end of November which is when we determined who would get the Tim Horton's hockey cards sitting on my desk for two months. We didn't have a final survivor, but three entries have been with us since the start and only have one strike each - binionben, cneilson and IceBurn. Two packs for each of them is how this is going to work. Congrats! I will email each of you for your address. Now there are 6 alive moving forward. I wonder if we will wrap this up by Christmas in which case we will open a new survivor in the New Year.

Nov 21: Well I'm out. Damn Senators. Why did I pick them? Actually I don't mind the Sens as a team as much as many others living in and around Toronto. I usually cheer for them a bit come playoff time. Anyway, I wasn't alone as we lost long-time MOP veterans forensic32 and Tcgpay, plus some other strikes. In fact, more strikes this week than correct picks. There are no more perfect entries. Good luck to our remaining competitors!

Nov 14: Lost in our confusing looking results page is IceBurn with a perfect entry through 6 weeks! Wow, that is something for a hockey survivor. Others who have been with us from the beginning and are doing well, binionben and cneilson each have only 1 strike, while myself and a few others have 2 and can't afford another wrong pick. We said goodbye to a handful of entries this week including picks for the Bruins and Flyers. Only two more weeks until we decide the winner of the Tim Horton's hockey cards that are sitting on my desk here.

Nov 7: in another tough hockey picking week, many of us are down to our last strike before getting the boot. I realize the results table is a bit confusing, but count the strikes after each entry's first actual pick in the pool - not a "no pick", marked with an [NP]. That is happening because some people joined after the original start. I'll see if I can figure out how to better clean that up. In the meantime, if you are still alive, keep picking and good luck!

Oct 31: Okay, this one is a little confusing because people can enter after the initial start deadline, so there are a bunch of no picks early that don't count as true strikes. Plus it appears the default picks didn't click in back in the second week like they should have. Anyway, we will keep rolling with it and I will monitor and we'll see how it goes. As for the picks this past Saturday, it was another tough week. The default Anaheim (selected alphabetically), seems to be the best of the bunch. Remember the top entry at the end of November wins the Tim Horton's hockey cards.

Oct 22: Not too many green check marks after Saturday night! We still have a few perfect entries through three weeks. Nice job binionben, CelticRules and IceBurn. This is triple knockout, right? Yes, triple. So we should have lost a few entries other than CelticRules #2 for the non-pickers in our group. I guess my program is having a tough time identifying those so I will have to look into that.
- - -
Oct 16: Why did I pick the Capitals with one of my entries? I clearly wasn't thinking straight because no one else picked them. More Winnipeg Jets picks than I would have thought, but it worked. A few people on their second strike already. I am up to 14 packs of Tim Horton's hockey cards to split between this pool and the free pick'em pool.

Oct 10: The great thing about a hockey survivor pool is the wide variety of picks since, you know, almost anything can and will happen in a hockey game. That is why it is triple knockout. We were as a group above .500 for the week, 13 wins and 9 losses. Watch out for that cneilson guy... he wins all of the hockey pools. Hey, anyone is welcome to join my private hockey survivor pool that starts Oct. 14th, $22 entry.

Oct 2: Per our member newsletter, the top entry in this pool through the end of November wins Tim Horton's hockey cards! Purchased during my daily Iced Capp run. - - -
Okay, lets get the new NHL season underway! Pick one team a week from the Saturday schedule to win. If they win, then you get a check mark. If they lose, then you get a strike. Since this is hockey and predicting hockey is borderline crazy, triple knockout is in effect! That is right, you are only body checked out of the pool after your third strike. You can't pick the same team twice. The weekly pick deadline is 7:00pm Eastern on Saturdays but earlier games must be picked before opening puck drop.

This is our free entry public hockey survivor pool which is open to one and all. Members can enter up to two entries, and since this is a for fun pool - bragging rights on the line only - members can also enter after the season starts. Tell your friends. The more the merrier. Cheers, Mike
