These are a variation on Survivor Hockey pools. Entrants pick one team each Saturday of the NHL regular season with the intention of the selection losing. If the team selected loses in regulation or overtime, the entry survives to the following week. If the team selected wins or goes to a shootout, the entry is eliminated from the pool. If all remaining teams win during a week, they all move on to the next week. The final surviving entry is the winner, unless there are multiple teams alive after the final week of the season. Teams may only be selected one time for the duration of the pool.
Strikes/Lives - Allow teams more than one 'win' or 'strike' prior to them being eliminated.
Start Week - Want to start a 2nd chance pool? Start a pool with the first pick some time after Week 1.
