The game is open to everyone! It is most certainly not limited to Engineer fans.
I am stealing the idea from NMU / Clarkson .
The game is pretty simple. Pick one player from both the Engineers and their opponent that you expect to do well on Friday. Repeat the process for Saturday using two different players (that means that you should have four different players for all of the weeks with two games). (The selection process will change for tournaments, but that will be detailed later.) Please, please, please put in your picks for both games before faceoff on Friday. (Extenuating circumstances, such as injury, etc. will let me be more lenient with switching Saturday picks.)
The scoring breakdown to be used is as follows:
Goal - 2 points
Assist - 1 point
Goal - 3 points
Assist - 2 points
Win - 2 points
Shutout (entire game, a split shutout will not count) - 3 points
Goal - 10 points
Assist - 4 points
The designation of forward / defenseman will be made based upon the position that player is on the line chart for that game.
Various goalie scenarios, just for clarification's sake:
1-0 Win = 5 points
0-0 Tie = 3 points
2-1 Win = 2 points
1-1 Tie = 0 points
A bonus point will be added to the score of the weekly winner(s).
To keep everyone from picking the same two / four players, the top-scoring (that's real points, not PtC points) forward and defenseman from each team (heading into the weekend) cannot be selected.
Scores will be tabulated and posted by me on the Sunday or Monday following games, using the CollegeHockeyStats.net box scores, with the new set of rosters / statistics posted on the same day. The scores will be kept in a Google spreadsheet so everyone can see them.
