It's that time of year again. Time to get your homework done.
Since we're only about a month away from the hockey pool draft, you have a lot of players to have a look at and consider, especially if my hockey pool draft has 24 teams again, like it did last season. I think it is a good idea to touch on all the teams, even if it is just a little bit, getting a handle on the names, where they are in the league, making sure you remember who got traded or signed where and get the feel in your mind what they are going to be worth to you.
This is also a good way to find those sleepers, get a handle on the rookies that will be making the jump and thus getting your own jump on the competition.
Of course, projections are going to change as we all go along. Players are going to sign between now and the start of training camp, camps will open in a few weeks and reports will surface about players moving up and down in the depth chart. These are all things that you will want to take in, but first... you have to start doing your homework.
If you are looking for an up-to-date player list, feel free to drop me an e-mail and I would be more than happy to send you an Excel copy or a PDF to help you with your studies. If you take an Excel copy, you can manipulate it as you wish or even set yourself up with a working copy for draft day, if you decide to bring your laptop.
