PICK-A-PEN OFFICIAL RULES
Only players last names will be counted (no nicknames). First and last name is fine but the last name HAS to be included.
Only entries in by puck drop will be counted. If it's a 7:08 puck drop that is the last time stamp that will be accepted.
If you want to change your pick you must enter your previous pick in RED and enter the new pick in YELLOW.
Player modifiers will be reevaluated whenever a new manager takes over*.
Players who are not listed will use the "acquisition/call-up" modifier, but must be selected by name in a pick. (Eg, the selections would have to read "Woodrow B. Smith", not "recent callup".) Same for the goaltenders.
Shootout goals are worth 1 point, regardless of modifier.
Game winning shootout goals are worth 2 points, regardless of modifier. - The last Penguin conversion in a Penguin SO win is deemed to be the gamewinner, regardless of the shootout score.
*The modifiers are based on a formula involving a player's ppg average, and number of times selected in previous PAPs. The goal is to disperse the selections amongst the roster as much as possible. I may change the modifiers within the 12 game stretch in order to protect this principle. I will change if there is a fundemental change in a player's role, but not because he's "hot". Eg, if Maata were to start quarterbacking the #1 PP, I would adjust his number down, and Letang's up. If Adams starts playing on a wing with Crosby and Kunitz, I would adjust his mumber down. I would not adjust it down just because he hits the scoresheet 3 games in a row.
Also, I intend to do the scoring the morning after each game. If the NHL makes an official scoring change after I have submitted the game's scoring, I don't intend to re-do it. It is final (except for the correction of my own mistakes) upon submission.
