To join, you'll first need to register for the game here. You can definitely use a pseudonym - I'm playing under username VWXYNot.
After you've entered your picks, go to the Group Membership page.
The group name is VWXYNot
(I am sooooo original)
The group password is luongorules
(I hope this doesn't prevent any of my non-Canuck fan blog buddies from signing up. You don't have to actually type it, just copy and paste ;) )
The deadline for entering the first week's player picks is 07:00 PM ET on Thursday, Oct. 1, 2009. They send reminders each week; you can just carry your existing team over into the next week, if you don't want to invest too much time. They tell you which players are out injured/suspended, which cuts down on the hockey knowledge needed!
My team is rather heavy on Canucks and former Canucks! (Guess who my goalie is). That might change as the season progresses, but right now I'm a little hazy on players from other teams, trades, new prospects etc.
Good luck, and remember, there will be a prize! The winner gets their choice of a $50 Amazon gift certificate, or equivalent value item from the NHL store. (And yes, that's Canadian dollars). If you absolutely don't want to give me your address, I believe PayPal allows pseudonymous accounts - but that's much less fun!
If I win, all other entrants have to send me cookies.
UPDATE!!! Someone joined the pool whose name I don't recognise. If this was a regular reader, please can you email and let me know who you are? I guess seeing as I put the password in a public place and all, randoms can join - but the prize is only open to my blog buddies! I aint sending $50 to a complete stranger.
