The NHL season is drawing near, and this season I have decided to spearhead a league for all devoted hockey fans.

This is a 12-man, roto scoring league.

Live draft time to be set at a later date

The draft time will be set at a later date, but it seems as though a Tuesday night perhaps at 8 or 9 EST would be good for people. If anyone has any qualms with the time or day, just PM.

The scoring is as follows: G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, W, SO, GAA, and SV%.

Rosters will be set as: F, F, LW, LW, RW, RW, D, D, D, D, G, G, BE, BE, BE, BE, BE, BE, IR

Confirmed participants:
HChu
Xiomera
Todd Bertuzzi
619
Wo_ot88
Jensen
HinesWardJr
djp
D-Unit

And awaiting on responses.

If you're interested, PM me for an invite and the like. Preference will be given to those I KNOW are hockey fans.

Good luck to all.

Hines

Is a Tuesday night draft good for people?

Xiomera
09-16-2009, 08:25 PM
HChu, you've gotta add Shots on Goal as a 10th category. That's one of the better categories to track, IMO. Better than PIM at least. Seems odd with just 9 . . .

Eh?

If you don't like the settings, why didn't you run it!? :D. SOG added as a stat, and depending on interest, this could be cut down to a 10-man league.

HChu, if we keep this to ten people, you might add another Forward and Defense slot. We had one more of each in my 10 man league last year if you recall.

Regardless, I think we need another IR spot or two. Players get shelved with injuries a ton in hockey.

Just a thought.

619 and fisch still need to accept their invites. After some thought and consultation, I realized rounding up 12 people to one live draft is difficult. I decided to cut down the spots to 10, and give the last spot to D-Unit. Mostly because I know he'll be active, even though his hockey knowledge is not the greatest.

I'm sorry to the others who PM'ed me about it.

Now onto deciding a draft time. If everyone could just post when would not be a good time/day for them, that would be much appreciated. It seems (from preliminary response) as if most people are good for Tuesdays, any objections?

Not far off from where mine is, to be honest with you. Your goaltending is the key to your team being successful, and initially it looks to be a productive trio. For all the **** Emery gets he's going to be earning a **** load of wins in front of that defense, and not to mention they are littered with some of the best two-way forwards in the game. The issue so far looks to be depth, but that's something you could figure out through FA/trade.

In the middle somewhere.

619, I like your team, lots of unsure things with your forwards though with JVR, Filatov, Borque, even Little to an extent.

Then you add in Hedman and the Toronto goalie situation (thank god you got both), there's some more uncertainty.

Definitely the potential, but I actually like Bertuzzi's, mine, and Xio's better as of now.

You need Crosby, Backstrom, and Iginla to carry you. Blake is nice for goals and SOG, but he's useless elsewhere.

Wheeler won't finish +36 again, so flukey. But he should be better points wise this year. Langkow isn't very good, Poni is a decent starter, he should get a lot of opportunities with Toronto, especially while Kessel is out.

Speaking of Kessel (aka Phil the Thrill), he should be pretty nasty good once he comes back from injury.

Corey Perry is a stud. I hate the guy, but he produces, and he gives you much needed penalty minutes (which you have little to none of).


Lidstrom is obviously a stud defender, but I really like Kubina. His +/- is going to be poor, but in Atlanta, I see him with 45 points with top PP time and PIMs to boot.

Ehrhoff is terrible. As is Schneider.

Koistenen is a nice sleeper, and McCabe could prove to be useful if Florida is better like I expect.

Goalie wise, you're probably fine although Bryzgalov is kinda bad, but at least he'll get starts. They are kind of like closers and running backs, you just want guys who are going to get the majority of the "touches" (starts), and you've got 3 guys that will, although I could see Emery taking a back seat at some point.

Emery is just such a wild card. Very talented, could be a top 5-6 goalie this year, but who knows? He might knock someone out and get suspended 10 games in the first week.

I'd say you've got some work to do, particularly upgrading your defense. You need some more consistent scoring, but once Kessel and Elias come back, you should be fine there. I'd try to get a tough guy that can pour in 40-50 points (David Backes or Alex Burrows are guys that would help your team immensely).. that is unless you are just planning on punting PIMs (I've seen guys win leagues doing this), but it's pretty tough.

You need Crosby, Backstrom, and Iginla to carry you. Blake is nice for goals and SOG, but he's useless elsewhere.

He obviously won't continue to produce more than Pronger or Timonen, but I'm not at all surprised to see Carle as a contributor on this team. And he'll probably keep up a very good +/-
He's a lot better to have than Koistinen.

The other moves are being made too early, but it doesn't really matter with the players involved. I still like Niskanen over Gilroy.

That's what happens when you have Andrei Kostitsyn -- it's purely a bench move, someone I can put in for +/- only. I am struggling in that.

He might not get 10 more assists this year, but he will still help in the +/- category.
