    Okay, well we only got 4 people that acknowledged that would be interested.. I decided to go ahead and create a league to see if we get others to sign up..

    League name: Allbuffs
    Password: hawk
    http://hockey.fantasysports.yahoo.com/league/allbuffs


    I set the draft up for next Wed at 7PACIFIC.. I can always change it..

    .. I set it up for a strictly Points League system but if others want a rotisserie or even heads up, I can be persuaded..

    Goals: 3 points
    Assists: 2 points
    +/- : 1 point
    PPP : 1 point
    SHG: 2.5 points
    SHP: 2 points
    Penalty Min: .4 points
    Goaltenders:
    Win: 4 points
    Losses: -1 point
    GA: -1 point
    Sv: .2 points
    Shutouts: 2 points


    Starters: 3 Centers, 2 Right Wings, 2 Left Wings, 4 Defensemen, 1 Utility(C, Def or Wing) and 2 Goalies, 6 Bench plus one IR is the roster settings for each team.

    Is autodraft on?

    I'm on call so I may or may not be live for the draft. Keep the time though.

    Even if I'm live, I don't know what I'm doing though I'm looking forward to it:smile:

    sign up.. We have plenty of spots SDBuff..:thumbsup:


    DDawg, I think you can rank your players in case you aren't there.. Let me go through the settings just to make sure but I do believe just like in yahoo football that if you ranked your players, it will use that during the live draft( I was not present during our yahoo football draft and it autopicked the team based on my rankings)..


    I can run the draft on the weekend if that's better. just wasn't sure if we would get everyone signed up before then..

    Settings for goalie btw Jimmy are nuts a win is 4 pts but if goalie gives up 3 goals his win values out to 1. The setting as they are now make most goalies incredibly non valuable.

    I think I used the yahoo default settings and I added the short handed goals one just as an incentive.. ..


    Do you want to go -.5 for each goal given up?


    u do get .2 for each save though..

    :thumbsup:


    Once everyone gets signed up, I can set up the draft positions.. I'll probably have some independent person pick team names out of a hat or something like that.

    Let's try to get all signed up by Monday guys.. :thumbsup:

    Yeah, I was hoping we could get at least 8 teams..



    Never played fantasy hockey so maybe its better that we don't have a lot of teams.. Not sure if I know over 100 some hockey players:smile2:

    Oh, hey canuck I'm keeping the goalie settings where they are.. You get .2 for each save, so if your goalie has 23 saves, gives up 3 goals and wins he gets 5.6 points.. That's not that bad..

    Here's the draft order.. An independent person picked a name out of a hat and I rolled two dice, with rankings from low to high. I included canuck buff (and he actually won it :lol:) in it eventhough he's not signed up as of yet.. If he doesn't make it in time everyone below him will be moved up..

    1. Canuck Buff
    2. San Diego Buff
    3. JimmyBuff
    4. FireHawk
    5. Bennoites
    6. Leeeerooooy Jenkins


    I sent canuck buff an pm to get signed up.. I will probably set the draft sometime tomorrow but as of now this is the draft positions. Draft resets each round.. so Leeeroooy Jenkins will pick first in the 2nd round.. Make sure everyone ranks their players!!! Draft tomorrow at 8MTN, 7 Pacific.

    If anyone else wants to play they are free too, but will have to pick last in the 1st round..

    All right everything went well in the draft.. I saw that there was talk on one of the message boards that IR had a flaw in it, so I decided to add another utility player to start. 15 of your players are live and you each have 5 bench players. I also changed goalie saves to .2 points to .25 points.



    I probably should have added a few more bench spots so blame my inexperience in fantasy hockey on that. Although this way, no one can stuff their benches with good players and if some of your players get hurt, there will be available players out there as free agents. Plus with only 6 teams, there is a lot of available talent out there which should keep everyone in striking distance.


    For the ones that went auto, everyone that wasn't picked is a free agent. Feel free to change your rosters to better suit your preferences of players, strategy etc.

    One more thing, your starting positions can not exceed the maximum number of games. Once you use up your center or right wing, or whatever positions, you will not accumulate any stats. Case in point: Let's say you have Malkin at Center and he only plays one game this week and you decide to play one of your bench centers Mike Richards who plays 3 games this week. If you decide to replace Richards for Malkin after that week for the rest of the season, you will not accumulate points in Malkin's last two games (since Richards 3 games and Malkin's 79 =82) So, you can overload the amount of changes if you want to build up a big lead, but you will be hamstrung during the last month or so..




    Good luck to everyone, NHL season starts tomorrow. :thumbsup:
