    Game: Offseason Pool, points tracked based on predicting signings/trades correctly

    How it works
    • I will release a list of rumoured trade block players + top FAs
    • You will pick 25 players off each list to predict
    • You place your prediction for each player like so:
    Trade:
    PlayerStayTradedDestination (if traded)
    Billy SmithNoYesHartford Whalers
    Free Agent:
    PlayerResignSigns ElsewhereDestination (if moves on)
    Bob SmithNoYesAtlanta Thrashers
    • I track points in a spreadsheet and update standings as we goo here on HF
    • Winner at the end is the player who accrued the most points
    • Lists will be required by the day before the draft
    • Looking for 6-14 teams
    Points go as such:
    Player stays: 1 point
    Player moves on: 2 points
    Players new team: + 3 points on player leaving
    Each team gets to make 1 other prediction for each trade and FA on a player moving on, you must predict team and location: 10 points

    • If a move occurs prior to the day before the draft or before all lists are in the predictions are voided

    Let me know below if you'd be interested, or if you'd want to help track, I'll post a thread for predictions + player pool

    I'd be down, but I suggest a larger bonus for correctly predicting a player's new destination as that can be quite tough.

    I was hoping for a few more people, if you want to start though you can build your charts and post them, I'll make a prediction thread and people can post as they join

    @Paralyzer008 suggested this game so I thought I'd throw it up but if there's no real interest not really an issue

    Prediction thread is up so go ahead and post your predictions as you have them, I'll start scoring you from the moment it's up.

    Just please do it in the format I outlined for simplicity of tracking

    Consider yourselves like the fake analysts on twitter, you hope what you throw at the wall sticks and the winner gets a blue checkmark

    Just in the prediction thread, make a FA and a TRADE category. I’ll track it all on a sheet
