Those Were The Days

from Jamie’s Hockey Blog,

When the hockey pool first gained popularity, back in the 1980s, it was considered a good excuse for drinking beer and talking trash.

Those days are long gone. For starters, it’s not called a hockey pool anymore. It’s a fantasy hockey league.

And it’s not about drinking beer. Fantasy hockey is serious business, an all-consuming, number-crunching hobby for fans who don’t get out much.

There are fantasy hockey leagues that award points for penalties, shots on goal, and faceoff win percentage. There are leagues with salary caps, waiver drafts, farm teams, and weekly transactions.
