We've been on the web since 1997. During that time, we've rapidly innovated what pool stats services should be about,
we've added many new features each year (and our new features have been shamelessly copied by other web sites, which
I guess is pretty flattering to us as leaders).
The feedback we have recieved is overwhelming, flattering,
positive and in great volume.
We can't share every comment we've gotten, but here is a sampling.
Look around at other sites. How much advertising and how many mouse clicks do you need to see your stats?
If they're throwing ads in your face and relegating your stats to the corner
of the screen, then they are missing the point.
This is about your pool, your stats, how you are crushing your opponents
in many decisive ways.
It's not about the ads, it's about TheHockeyPool!

I have been involved in many pools over the last few years. I just
wanted to let you know that thehockeypool.com has been the best pool I have
been apart of. The administrators of the pool have been more than helpful
when emailed and the professionalism showed by yourslef and your group is
commendable. We will be back for years to come..
By the way, I looked around for a "free" hockey pool when I found out that you guys were charging. Seeing that I ended up paying you in the end, I guess you can see the state of your competition. This is by far the best pool out there. Thanks!
I was looking for a hockey pool, tried some, and found them utterly
confusing. Then I logged onto Thehockeypool.com , and what a godsend! You
guys are fantastic! Easy to understand, easy to configure, it was a breeze
to set up my pool, and I'll recommend you guys to anyone! Fantastic!
Dear TheHockeyPool.com guy
Thank you Thank you Thank you. Not only do you provide the best bar
none hockey pool site on the Internet, you also went above and beyond
the call of duty to outwit the idiot interent security guys at my work.
Hockey pools at work are a right that should be written into the
constitution. Thank you for championing this constitutional amendment!
Hello Poolguy. I just wanted to compliment you on one of the best sites
on the net!! You have everyone in our office baffled with the speed of
your reports, accuracy, different ways of reporting the data, and the
ease of use. I work for a computer developing team [and]
this is an excellent site!! And it is very fast.
this a great pool service!!! i looked hard last year to find something
like this. it makes pooling very easy! now i don't mind looking after our
Me and my friends ... have been running a pool for almost 10
years. A great excuse for the guys to get together.
We have used your site for the last 4 years and are very happy with the service. It seems to be even smoother this year! Thanks and keep it up.
I would like to say that this hockey pool site is the GREATEST on the
web. Congratulations! ... Everything looks great!
This is by far the best site for hockey poolers, like myself ,on the

This is the best site I've found yet! Keep up the great site!!!!!!!!!
Dear Pool Guy-
I would just like to say that I have had a hockey pool for 19 years and
have gone from keeping stats with a pen and paper,to using colored graph
paper,to using a crude but affective program on my old Commodore 64,
updating the stats every night ! The pool has grown from 9 managers,9 teams
to 55 managers, 22 teams so I was going through alot of
pens --- until a friend of mine brought me to the attention of
this Hockey Pool web page. WOW, this site is GREAT !!!
With the easy setup of the teams and the special features that have been
added to customize the pool, you have made my pool update time much more
enjoyable and much more interesting. The many different stats, injury
reports and predictions have also added a new twist to the who's winning,
who's loosing pool. Thank you very much.
The guys in the pool who have seen this think it has made the pool that much
Yo Pool guy,
We love your stats. you are the man.
Hockey remote. OUT
Thanks for your help and keep up the stellar work. What a fantastic
concept. My fellow poolies/internet junkies are all over this idea like
white on rice!!!
The regular season pool is over and your site got rave reviews!! I've
already entered the info for the playoff pool. your site is great!
You do a great job each day... always look forward to seeing what stats
are included, knowing that they will be changed periodically. Keep up
the great work.
The players in my league want to thank you for the page. We think it is
I think that your site is killer, it made it a lot easier to do our pool
Wonderful service you offer guys. Someone at the office came up with the
idea of a hockey pool. Since we have 21 teams I started looking on the
internet for a ... service like yours. I saw a few but nothing is
comparable to the stats you give on a daily basis.
I LOVE IT!!!! KUDOS,KUDOS,KUDOS!!!! MANY THANKS, SINCERELY,
I would also like to thank you for this great website. I have been
managing 2 Play-off drafts since 1982 and when
I found your website I was very excited. I have been looking for a
better method to look after these drafts for
a long time, and your site seems to be the answer. Many friends in other
drafts have been told of your website
and will be using it for their Play-off drafts, as well as their League
Drafts. Again, thank you for this terrific
idea. ITS THE BEST THING I'VE FOUND ON THE WEB !!!!!!
Oh [bleep], just keep doin' what you're doin' ! I've been [bleep]ing my pants for
a coupla days, trying to download a decent hockey pool manager for the playoffs,
when I found your site! A million thanks!
Anyway, thanks again. I just set up my pool and it is *EVERYTHING* I was
looking for. I'll be back year after year to run my playoff pool for sure. Thanks!
WOW! this is about the coolest thing I've ever seen. I've been doing the
stats using Excel for years, but not any more. Thanks for enriching my
I just wanted to let you know that I think this site rocks!
What a treat... it is organized pretty much PERFECT!!!
I like the new team point analysis at the start of the stats...
Anyhow, love the site.... Keep up the good work
Just used your service for the first time, and it is awesome! To think
I spent all that time last year working from the newspaper to my
spreadsheet. I am very impressed with your all of the different types
of stats that are offered with your service; I was so happy with myself
last year when I finally figured out how to get average points per
player, now I have every stat imaginable at my fingertips.
Thank you for your service, but there's only one problem with it... I am
not winning, can you do something about that?
Hello. I would like to commend you on the excellent service you provide!
The pool I have set up is running smoothly and everyone invloved is very
