Playoff Hockey Pools?

Anyone know of any good sites where I can get into some playoff pools? It can be free ones, or it can be ones that you have to pay for. I figured that the DVDTalk community should be able to put together a decent list...

I've started a free league over at Sporting News

Link: http://fantasygames.sportingnews.com...sic/login.html
League Name: DVDTalk
League Password: onetimer

If you don't have a Sporting News account, you'll be asked to create one. It's free.

Rules: In Basic Fantasy Hockey - Playoffs, you're the General Manager of your very own hockey team! We give you 30,000,000 Sporting News Dollars (TSND) to draft 7 players (1 centers, 2 wingers, 2 defensemen, 1 goalie, and 1 extra attacker) who will score points for you based on how they play in real-life hockey games.

As GM, you use your 30,000,000 TSND salary cap to build the best hockey team you can afford. While they're on your team, your players score Sporting News Points (TSNP) towards your season-long total by playing in real-life games. If one of your players is in a bad slump, or if he gets hurt, you can cut him and pick up another player to join your team, provided you can afford him. Manage your team wisely, though - you have a limited amount of moves you can make.

You can add/drop players to your roster at will until the first roster freeze deadline (Wednesday 4/7 at 11pm Eastern). After that, you're allowed 10 add/drops.

Scoring:
Offensive Statistics
Statistic TSNP
Goal +25
Assist +25
Hat Trick +30
Power Play Goal +10
Short-Handed Goal +20
Game-Winning Goal +20
Game-Tying Goal +10
Overtime Goal +5
Penalty Minute +3
Plus/Minus Rating +/-10
Shot on Goal +2

Goalie Statistics
Statistic TSNP
Goals allowed -15
Save +2
Win +50
Shutout +50
Tie +25
Goal +25
Assist +25
Penalty Minute -3

Points are cumulative throughout the playoffs.
