Sign Up For Rinkotology And Put Your Fantasy Skills To Use

Everyone loves fantasy hockey, right? I mean, there’s nothing better (for me at least) watching my team start the year out at the top of the league standings and then imploding and sliding to the bottom. Hell, in real-life that happens every year. But how many of your Yahoo! or ESPN leagues come with some sort of monetary incentive to actually make informed player decisions? Thankfully, none of mine, because God knows I don’t want to pay $5 to watch someone else win $250.

This is where Rinkotology comes in. The Pensblog has been doing their Rinkotology brackets for a few seasons now, and it’s always probably one of the biggest to-dos on the Bloguin network. This year, they’ve expanded it to a mini-game option as well for those of you who aren’t high rollers.

What’re the rewards, you might ask? Well, from the Pensblog guys, here you go:

There are three divisions. The top five in each division will win money:  

1st place: $300

2nd place: $250

3rd place: $200

4th place: $150

5th place: $100

The overall winner of the entire Quest For The Cup will win an extra $700, for a total of $1000.


Well, hellooo, nurse. This’s a bit more substantial than the usual fantasy league, eh? All you have to do is choose one player from each of the sixteen playoff teams. You have to have ten forwards, four defensemen, and two goaltenders. As they play, they accumulate points for goals, assists, hat tricks, series clinching goals, and the like. A complete set of rules is at

Registration’s over on April 13th at 5:00 PM Eastern Time, so get your teams set up, and good luck!
