Question Hobo... how's the draft order decided? Does the computer randomize it? Or is it by team creation? (oldest to newest, newest to oldest)

The draft order is randomly selected by the computer 30 mins or so before the draft smile.gif Keeps it more fair that way.

On a side note: at least we have a reasonable number of people now, so looks like in a few weeks all the fun begins biggrin.gif (I'm just reminding you all that I was looking to go for the auto-draft on about the 14th. So you still gotta few days to pre-select your draft order.)

No no, it wasn't too early. At the end there I was talking about the order your guys will be selected. You can change all that around as often as you like. On the 14th, I will run the auto-draft. A computer will then select your actual team. So preselecting your order now is a good thing smile.gif

Double post, yadda yadda yadda.

Ok, so the draft has been conducted and your teams are set! You can still add and drop players from those left, as well as trade with other teams if you wish. The first game of the season begins on Oct. 5, so there's still time to figure out this whole thing before then. Good luck to you all ....



Oh yeah, and hope you enjoy yourselves at the bottom biggrin.gif

Hobo you silly you did not double post. A double post only is when you can add to the first one but don't. That post was way back on the 8th! smile.gif

Hope you have fun look UP at me as I skate all over your team. laugh.gif

Well, technically I did seeing as there are 2 in a row 1.gif, but that's what the "yadda yadda yadda" covered.

It would be kind of hard to skate all over my team if you're lying on your back on the ice, knocked over from my team soaring to the top w00t.gif

Of course, if you are wearing a skirt I don't think the view from below will be all that bad biggrin.gif

Well, it's finally here! Day 1 of the fantasy league. Make sure to get the players you want to play off the bench and onto your roster for the week. Don't worry, it's not too hard to figure this out.

Just incase I forgot to mention it earlier, only your players that play in the actual game (and aren't on your bench) will have their stats added to your total for the week. And a minimum of 3 games must be played by your combined goalies in order for your goalie stats to stick. Oh, and roster(position) changes happen on a daily basis, but you can edit your lineup days in advance if you aren't going to be around for a while.

Good luck to you all biggrin.gif

What can I say, I have faith in the homegrown talent biggrin.gif.

Looks like I cleaned up in the first week too. Hopefully I can turn this week around, seeing as I am currently down .....

Better watch your back Hobo! Team Sidhe is breathing down your neck. And just so you know when I win...I like Cristal champagne. Or beer. Beer is good too. 1.gif

Sighfie you just gave me a question - what does the winner of the season get? Surely nobody could give you a real cup, right? smile.gif

Or we can decide that for ourselves? That'd be fun... cool.gif

Bring it on Auntie biggrin.gif. So far I stand undefeated over 3 weeks, and remain 6 wins ahead of the pack.

and that package DOES sound nice. Just make sure they spell my name right in the credits 1.gif

Well, crap. I've just dropped to third. I suppose I should move or trade or, or....do something crafty and technical...but the truth is, I have no idea how I stayed second for so long. I picked my players because of where they were from! I figured anybody from Canada would know what they were doing and Boston is where my Dad was born. laugh.gif

Oh, well, maybe the Cristal will have to wait for another occasion. But look for me to make a major, yes I said MAJOR, comeback in the second half of the season. Oh yes, I would pity you if I didn't want that champagne so much.

P.S. Hobo, I'll be PMing you so you can tell me what to do. whistling.gif

Yeah, I'm the new nr.2 king.gif Don't know how I won that last game. One minute I was losing and then after changing just one player it all changed!

Nice way to pick players, Sigfie! smile.gif I borrowed my brother for the drafts, he plays that NHL game A LOT! Since then he has checked my stats a couple of times and both times he was surprised that I haven't screwed up editing lineup and changing players laugh.gif

Yes, that was very technical of me wasn't it, Ilzy? laugh.gif I think I've finally started to figure out how it all works though. Although Hobo, why does it say that I can't drop certain players?

Hmmmm, you should be able to drop everyone. Who does it say you can't drop? Just out of curiousity ....

[EDIT] You do realize that as of right now you have only 1 goalie? Every week you need to have your goalies play a combined minimum of 3 games or you automatically lose every goalie category for that week. And each goaltender plays on average 2 games a week .... Just thought I'd give you a heads up.

I know!! laugh.gif But I couldn't find anymore in the available players. I'm going to have another look.

I wasn't able to find nary a one...but I'm showing I have Turco and Raycroft now. ohmy.gif

... except the transactions show you have dropped Raycroft. I suggest searching for another goalie if you can. Plus, Raycroft has just been injured and won't be playing for the next week 1.gif

Oh, and Auntie: Brett Hull retired a few weeks ago. It might be a good idea to drop him and find a replacement in your lineup biggrin.gif

I thought he was gone at the end of this season? Ok thanks about the heads up re the goalies and Hull.

I remember when Hull first joined. They all said he would never amount to anything and would wash out. He could not possible last long. He was just using his daddies name. I guess they were wrong. laugh.gif

Hull had a great career. One that ended 5 games into this season 1.gif. and then there are people like Lemieux. Who retire, come back and have a 5 point game tonight. 2 goals and 3 assists. Not bad for someone who is thinking about retiring ... again.

Ok, there's one thing I don't get - I have the two most resultative players this season so howcome I'm losing the game? mad.gif Well, I realise that other players in the lineup are important too but I just can't figure out where's the problem...

Your team stats are what really matter. You can have 2 amazing players who get you tons and tons of points, but if everyone on the other team gets a little bit then their total just may be higher than yours. Additionally, goalies count for alot (6 out of 10 categories). So having good goalies will help you out lots too smile.gif
