Robinson's Fantasy Rundown: 5 rules to win your playoff pool

The gruelling fantasy hockey schedule is behind us now and with it came happiness, heartbreak and/or upheaval. You either climbed the mountain or came up short. But regardless, it’s time to shift gears and start the yearly tradition of attempting to predict rhyme or reason for your fantasy hockey playoff pool. 

Unlike the regular season where there are roster spots to massage, the waiver wire to work, and trades to comprehend and institute. Now it’s simply a game of draft and watch, hoping your gut led you down the right path. 

I may be the fantasy expert here at EP Rinkside, but even I do not have a crystal ball. If I did, please believe my betting history would have a few more zeros attached to the end of it. And I’m talking about the fun side of the decimal. But that doesn't mean we can’t use history, wise judgment and some astute rules to make out like bandits this spring. 

When drafting in a playoff pool, there are a few rules to try and stick by. They may seem simple or self-explanatory but trust me, it’s easier said than done. And now behold the five rules to win your fantasy pool.
