    Default 2017 World Junior Championship Pool

    Ladies and gentlemen,

    Welcome to the IIHF Under 20 2017 pool. This is the ninth year that pool has been run here.

    PAST WINNERS:
    First off, credit to the past winners.
    2008/09: miked (out of 9 entries)
    2009/10: ultrawhiteness (out of 28 entries)
    2010/11: watchingthegame (out of 28 entries)
    2011/12: metaldude26 (out of 20 entries)
    2012/13: vandalay (out of 29 entries)
    2013/14: CaptainCally (out of 21 entries)
    2014/15: watching the game (out of 34 entries) – two time champ
    2015/16: Crazy Joe Davola (out of 37 entries)

    I also want to credit dobber user ‘nights’ for helping with the in tournament stat tracking. There is no Yahoo or ESPN or Fantrax pool so to update stats requires good old fashion manual entry. Nights has offered again this year and always does a great job.

    SCORING:
    Points only for skaters
    Goalies Wins = 2, OLT = 1, SO = +2
    The only points that count are those in games that lead to a medal (round robin and playoffs). This does include the bronze medal game. Relegation round or 5th-6th seeding games are NOT included.

    ROSTER
    12 forwards, 6 d-men, 2 goalies + 1 captain (total 21 players)
    Only 5 players from any one nation (including all positions and captain) so you can’t load up on one or two nations.

    The position of 'Captain' was introduced to further enhance the diversity of the picks. I have selected a few highly regarded players in tournament and you can only pick one (they are not available for the other forwards positions). This year the 6 captain are:
    Alexander Nylander SWE
    Dylan Strome CAN
    Clayton Keller USA
    Joel Eriksson Ek SWE
    Eeli Tolvanen FIN
    Kirill Kaprizov RUS

    PRIZE
    Respect and bragging rights.

    HOW TO ENTER
    In the attached in the next post is a .zip file in which I have put a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. From here you can use the pull-down menus to pick you team. The spreadsheet counts the number of players from each nation. Once you have selected your 21 players save the excel file with your username and email it to me. My email is reeveta at gmail dot com. Please put 'World Junior Pool' in the title so it will be easy to spot in case your email gets caught as spam.

    If you don't have Microsoft Excel your other option is to email me with the names (first name and last name) of you entry in a list. The names must be spelled exactly as found on the roster from the http://www.worldjunior2017.com/en/teams/ website. This make it possible for me to cut and paste into excel. Be sure to count the number of players you have from each nation.
    If you don’t have email and want to PM me please also make sure the full name is spelled correctly. Names I don’t understand may be mistaken for depth players on Team Latvia.

    The deadline is before the drop of the puck for the first game.

    CHANGES
    Every year a few people wanted to change their entries after they made them but before the deadline. This is not a big deal but it is something I would like to minimize because it opens it up for me to make a mistake. The best plan is to wait until closer to the start of the tournament to make your entry. However, if you want to change it I will accept it up until the deadline.

    NOTES AND DISCLAIMER
    I have done the best I can to get the up-to-date rosters but these rosters are pre-cuts for some teams and there may be errors. I take no responsibility for you picking players that don't play.

    If player is not on the pull down list but should be, add him in the 'write in' section. There shouldn't be many but if there are I am sorry. Every year a few people put a write-in candidate that is one of the captain choices. Be sure to look there first.

    I am posting this December 16 at 4 pm eastern time so it couldn't hurt to check back in a day or two in case someone finds a mistake. Updates will be posted here.

    SPREAD THE WORD
    Please feel free to spread the word around the forums about this free challenge.

    Just a quick correction - Kaprizov is not on the captains list.

    Thanks for this. I fixed the file to have him in the pull-down menu. The file on the first post has been updated.

    I'm in. So not complaining at all, but wondering why not use Google Docs? Easier than attachments and emails?
    Although I know excel offers a lot more in terms of spreadsheet function, so maybe that's it?

    Get lucky? I guess my words of wisdom would be to maximize your use of the 5 max per team.

    Haha. Yeah it wasn't a serious question, but I agree about using the max on teams you think will go far. Of course, the challenge is deciding on which team(s).

    Not a bad idea to do it in GDocs, at least for hosting the stat tracking, as it would just be a link instead of an attachment that has to be downloaded for you guys all the time.

    I don't think the functions the file uses requires Excel over GDocs.

    And people could update until the games start without issue. Editing could be locked on the day of.
