Mom's Basement Stakes

The new name for rakii's draft contest, there are no stakes. Each year I find pundits who predict the upcoming NHL draft, either with a draft board or a mock draft, and use their draft board to see who they would have selected using that team's year. The first year, 2014, I used Buffalo. 2015, Winnipeg, then 2016 back to Buffalo. The reason we went to Winnipeg is that everyone would have chosen Eichel, and then Buffalo didn't have another pick for a while, so we found a team that had a better selection of selections.

The first year, we allowed the pick if another competitor had already chosen him. The second and third year we did not allow a pick that was already chosen. This year, we will return to the original rule, you can select someone that another Mom's Basement Stakes competitor has already selected.
