    Default 2016 World Junior Championship Pool

    Ladies and gentlemen,

    Welcome to the IIHF Under 20 2012 pool. This is the eight year that pool has been run here.

    First off, credit to the past winners.
    2008: miked (out of 9 entries)
    2009: ultrawhiteness (out of 28 entries)
    2010: watchingthegame (out of 28 entries)
    2011: metaldude26 (out of 20 entries)
    2012: vandalay (out of 29 entries)
    2013: CaptainCally (out of 21 entries)
    2014: watching the game (out of 34 entries) Ė OUR FIRST REPEAT WINNER!!!

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

    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.

    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 canít 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:
    Mitchell Marner CAN
    Dylan Strome CAN
    William Nylander SWE
    Auston Matthews USA
    Mikko Rantanen FIN
    Pavel Zacha CZE

    Respect and bragging rights.

    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 (firstname lastname) of you entry in a list. The names must be spelled exactly as found on the roster from the 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 donít have email and want to PM me please also make sure the full name is spelled correctly. Names I donít understand may be mistaken for depth players on Team Denmark.

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

    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 have to change it I will accept it up until the deadline.

    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 17 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.

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

    YES YES YES! I've been waiting for this to come back for weeks!

    Reeveta doesn't get enough credit for running this. And I know Nights has been a big help in the past as well. As I write this I see he is helping out again.

    HUGE kudos to you both.

    Thanks for fixing the title. It is true that I do live in the past but if that was the case I should have but 1996.

    Thanks for organising this again, looking forward to it. Surprisingly, I managed third place last year so need to remember where I did my research haha!

    For the first time, I'm going to be at the tournament - got tickets to both semifinals, the bronze and gold medal games. Hope Canada makes it that far! Can't wait.
