    A HUGE thank you to Aetherial for pulling out all the stops and for putting who knows how many hours of time and effort into this. Kudos. *tips hat*

    This was a modified version of something else I have been working on for about a month... so the time devoted to this sheet was maybe 2 hours Smile

    It is much more fun and easier to do these kinds of pools using a tool that keeps track of where you are with your spending and your picks!

    GM Central's Pool (feat. Aetherial)

    Post by PTFlea on Wed Sep 24, 2008 11:02 am

    The GM Central Pool has been streamlined!

    It will work the same as the other pool.

    Player point costs range from 11 (Crosby, Ovechkin) down to 1 for various lunchpail guys.

    You will have 110 points to spend on making a team.

    The real difference is going to be how people apportion their money by position, and which players they like in a certain group...

    You Senators fans are going to be able to reasonably choose your Sens players now, whereas with a cap pool, there were way cheaper options, and most people (everyone?) would only take Alfredsson.

    The picking sheet is here...

    Heater, Please post this where people can see it.

    I can do this easily on online pools. Send me your picks when you're done.

    You have the same time limit. Due Oct.16th.

    That's for damn sure.

    Because of the way I did the point costs, it is very difficult to find a bargain. I have tried using some statistical analysis to guide my picks, and ended up with a team I am not happy with at all.

    I can't wait to see what people come up with because my attempts are all over the board so far.

    If you take a sure thing... you will end up taking a cheap guy somewhere else, no way around it. The problem is, the cheap guys really do suck!

    I would suggest that they send you the spreadsheet filled out. That way you can easily tell if they have picked a team within the rules since the sheet will tell you pretty quickly if they messed up.

    They should just make their picks, and name the sheet -GMPool.xls or something like that and send it to you.

    After only a day? Wow. Impressive. I've got a whole pile of Dung players that I don't want - and I have to make several choices. Or go back... scratch

    Well, I knew if I kept tweaking, I could be second-guessing myself for days or even weeks, so I just settled on my last one. It's not bad, considering what I was able to swing...

    I sent it to you a few mins ago. Smile
    I'd love to hear your thoughts dude.

    I don't have Excel at work, so I'll look at it when I get home.

    Continuing my constant tweaking of my picks (more like starting over, and over and over...), one thing I have noticed, that I did not anticipate, is that you might as well pick players you like.

    I even found a couple Leafs who I really may take on my team. You'll probably find that the players who cost the same as a guy you like aren't any better... so you might as well choose who you like.

    ... now we'll have a bunch of people with 6 Sens Rolling Eyes
