Thought I should start a league page...

So far I've had suggestions of adding a few more BN spots (currently 5 BN spots - 20 total spots & 3 IR slots) and also a few cat's (I'll let you guys make your suggestions again)

Let's try to have everyone signed up and have everything (cats, draft time, etc) sorted out by this Friday, then we can draft Sunday as planned or another time if enough ppl want it changed.

Cats work for me as is, and if anyone wants to add anything its all cool for me. The 5 Bench spots should be enough, maybe add a 6th since we also have the W, F and UTIL. I guess it couldn't hurt.

Sunday @ 5PM is perfect, the Jets play at 1.. So :D

Like I already said maybe add SHP and GWG for skaters and SV for goalies.

And maybe another bench spot or 2 since it's a keeper and 6 or 7 BN spot is nice to have.

But none of that is a must.

Short of a bunch of ppl not being able to make it, I think we will stick with it....otherwise maybe tues/wed in the early evening....but for now, the current draft date is the time.

6 signed up so far....6 to go! (edit: make that 7 with Moans)

FYI if we don't draft by Sunday night we won't play in week 1 (which is actuall 2 real weeks long since it contains the games here in Europe and the first real week of play).

Are you sure? The first game aren't til Saturday, so I would think as long as the draft is done before then we will be ok...

No he's right. Technically, week 1 is from September 29th to October 12th, so if we don't have teams by September 29th, we won't get stats for that week.

If that's the case, I'd like to get the draft done Sunday.

You can retroactively add stats though right? You can in baseball IIRC.

Sunday is okay for the draft though, the Broncos play at 11am so I'll be fine. I just hope we can get everyone signed up by then.

As for the stats/rosters, I think one more BN spot would be nice since we have W, F and UTIL. I assume everyone is going to try and rock 3 goaltenders, so that's only 4 bench spots for skaters, I think one more would be good. I don't mind adding SHP or GWG, but I think it's fine the way it is now. SHP and GWG are nice in points leagues, but I don't really care about them in H2H, but if we add one, my vote is for GWG over SHP. I wouldn't mind seeing total saves added for goalies. It at least lets you get a category you can win by just playing more games than the other guy (like Ks for pitchers in baseball, you may lose all other categories but at least you can get one!). I wouldn't mind seeing that in place of shutouts actually, since that's usually a 1-0 or 2-1 category anyway, and a shutout already helps you in W, GAA and SV%

dw13
09-25-2008, 01:46 PM
I also agree with GWG > SHP.. and Sunday is definitely fine for me, for the same reason its good for eff1ngham. Jets will be done, and I'll have full focus.

KK just signed up and I confirmed Kam as (I believe) the 12th manager, so once boredguy, sdubzz & hinske sign up, we should be ready to draft.

Based on what everyone has suggested, I am giving 5 options - please post your first & second choices

G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, SOG, W, GAA, SV%, SHO

1. Leave settings as they are.
2. Add GWG
3. Add GWG, take away Shut-outs
4. Add GWG, take away shut-outs & add SV's
5. Add GWG's & Sv's

(I decided against SHP's - executive decision :D)

I am also adding 1 more BN spot.

boredguy may actually be out....will know later today. If that's the case, we will need one more...I'm not too worried, but if you have any suggestions, PM me.

In the event BG and Roy Hinske (haven't heard from him) do bail, would you guys rather keep it at 10 or find ppl for 12? I'm easy either way myself...

09-26-2008, 09:15 AM
I would prefer 10.

suckerpuncher
09-26-2008, 11:02 AM
Yeah, with 10 guys we might expand the roster which is harder to do in a 12 teamer.
And still the teams are pretty stacked.

We could also increase the # of keepers to 6 or 7 in a 10 teamer. But we might limit thhe # of goalies kept per team (2 is reasonable to me).

dw13
09-26-2008, 01:04 PM
10 Sounds good to me.. with maybe 6 keepers? Would work out for me.

Fly's out...he said he was good and I thought he had meant he's in, but he meant he was good as in he wasn't going to join.

So, with no BG and Hinske not replying, I am leaning towards adding to BN spots and increasing the keepers to 6 (with Suckers suggestion of a two goalie max. cap) if we do this. I asked Roy Hinske to get back to me by tonight...if he doesn't, like I said, looks like a 10-teamer.

So, KK pre-ranked and still got uber-fucked in this draft. He has Nabakov (sweet) and Bernier (sweet...maybe that is...in 1-2 yrs!) as his keepers. With a 4 goalie games played minimum, he needs a goalie.

I am going to allow him to add Khabibulin and drop whoever and allow KK to retain his waiver spot (#1). He will get Khabi one way or another (he has #1 waiver), so please don't complain. I have no desire to ever do this again, I just don't think it fair that he got auto-fucked the way he did. I know other ppl auto-drafted as well, but they didn't get 1 starting goalie and 7 dmen like KK did which is why I am going to help him (I offered, he did not ask).

Please don't whine about this...the guys team is pretty shitty and it's not Khabi is going to win him the season! (watch that come back to bite me in the ass!)

09-29-2008, 04:24 PM
I really hate to be a dick....and I have nothing against KK....

But there is no way you can do that without possibly being massively unfair to another team.

Just as an example...take a look at phaneuf6's team. He has Lehtonen and Rask. That is waaaaay worse than Nabby and Bernier. What sort of plans are we gonna make for him?

Again, I hate to be "that guy", and I can understand that auto-drafting can really screw teams over, but I just think doing this would be even more unfair...

dw13
09-29-2008, 04:38 PM
Yeah I don't want to be a dick as well, but I second nyrblues post. Atleast he has Nabby... Kari and Rask is 100x worse, and maybe he wanted that shot at signing Khabbi. I don't know why you would let him retain his #1 waiver... But I won't raise too much of a fuse after this post.

If guys trade their future picks and then can't make it back to the league, replacement managers are stuck with their decisions. Pretty lame. And yes, this is me subtly calling you a quitter, dawinna13.

I agree, they are stuck with past decisions, but to lose draft picks is a different story. It affects their current tenure, rendering them with even less control. If I took over a team the least I'd want is my draft to rebuild accordingly.

not allowing the trading of draftpicks is stupid. We keep one more in this pool than baseball and the trade involving the draft pick may actually benefit a new manager by improving his keepers. I think they should definitely be fair game and we should have a league vote ot see what others say.

The last couple of years it was possible to edit draft picks. I did that in our football eague last year if you can remember. And once a feature is introduced to one fantasy sports in Y! it will be available in all others starting with the new season.

You only need to make sure that all teams have the same number of picks in total.
So if one team 1 deals player X + a pick and team 2 gives up player B then team 2 also needs to get the last pick from team 1 in the live draft.

And one important thing. Wait until entering keepers and swapping picks until everybody has joined the league. As soon as someone joins or drops out everything will be resetted and you can start from scratch and re-enter all changes.

Guys, I am not setting draft dates, etc. until Yahoo rolls out the fantasy hockey sign-up which they haven't done.

Draft will be live and likely a week or so before the season starts. Keeper deadline is undecided, but I am looking at Sept. 1 or Sept 15 type of deal. Once yahoo gets it up, I can set a date. Also, Sucker is in Germany and Mrty is westcoast, so it might get tricky. I am open to the idea of an offline draft, but they are a pain in the ass, so I'd rather a live draft. I'll be tres busy in September so not sure I can do a bang-up job as the commish for an offline draft.

Sit tight for more news.

Draft order is - see more current post on the next page - I screwed up the first time...sorry.

I thought the teams that didn't make the playoffs drafted in order of where they finished the regular season, not where they finished after the consolation round :confused:

I took it directly from the standings for the bttm 6 and the 6 that made the playoffs in that order. What's the problem?

Edit: good catch Eff - I assumed the standings listed on the league page were the regular season standings, but they are the standings after the playoffs. My 6th pick becomes a 2nd pick :D

The proper standings are;

1. Phaneuf
2. b_illin
3. Hinske
4. Eff1ngham
5. Killah
6. Dubz (taking over for Dawinna)
7. NYRBlue
8. Moans
9. Narduch
10. Sucker
11. Boredguy
12. Mrty (taking over for Kam)

OK looks like picks can be adjusted no problem in a live draft as long as they even out numbers wise.

Hello,

Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Fantasy Sports.

I appreciate your inquiry with regards to trading draft picks.

All trades of this nature must be agreed upon in advance of the draft so
you can manually assign the draft order to account for the trades. This
means you must have all trades and changes finalized at least 1 hour
before the draft is scheduled to start.

Basically when you go into your commissioner tools "Edit Draft Order &
Assign Keeper Players" option you can assign a custom draft order
assigning one manager more then 1 pick in a round.

As an example say the first person in the draft trades that pick for the
#6 pick and #7 pick.

Original order

Round 1

Team 1
Team 2
Team 3
Team 4
Team 5
Team 6

Round 2

Team 6
Team 5
Team 4
Team 3
Team 2
Team 1

New Order after the trade

Round 1

Team 6
Team 2
Team 3
Team 4
Team 5
Team 1

Round 2

Team 1
Team 5
Team 4
Team 3
Team 2
Team 1

Now the only additional thing that will need to be done here is Team 1
will also need to give another pick to team 6 so everyone drafts the
same number of players during the draft. Thus team 1 would likely
forfeit a later round pick so team 6 will draft 2 players in the final
round of the draft.

I would suggest playing around with the options in this tool.

Thank you again for contacting Yahoo! Fantasy Sports.

Regards,

Marshall

Guys, as I have said a few times, there will NO drafting of draft picks til I know for sure if I can alter the draft order accordingly. I won't know that til Yahoo opens up fantasy hockey, so sit tight for now. Yahoo is taking their fucking time making fantasy hockey available....that's for sure!

It will be possible, believe me.

Y! implements new features about twice a year - with the start of fantasy baseball and then again with the start of fantasy football. And once they implement a new feature for one fantasy sports it will be available for the new versions of all other fantasy sports.
And the custom draft order and switching of picks was implement in fantasy football last year and since then have been part in all other fantasy sports. And this feature is a useful one and it's working so it won't be taken out.

I know this because I talked to one of the developers of this exact feature and that's what he told me.
Remember that we got a free Plus league in our football keeper last year. This was a gift from the developer because I pointed him to an error in this exact feature and made some test runs from my PC (a data compression problem from Germany to the US didn't allow me to save the draft order) until he pin-pointed and fixed the problem.


That's why I'm also quite confident that both the FAAB-system and probably even live scoring will be available for hockey too just like it is for football now. ;)

I am sure they will have the feature, but I am waiting to be sure - they didn't last year and I would rather we wait 1-2 weeks til they open up registration then allow trades and have to undo them. Patience is a virtue...and hockey season is still more than 6 weeks away....lots of time for trading once I can set up this years league.

Thanks in advance for the understanding.

1 goalie max to be kept. Invites to follow soon....

Online draft is tentatively set for (Sun) Sept. 27 @ 4pm - that gives everyone lots of notice and also allows Sucker to draft at a still reasonable hour as he is in Germany.

Problem is Sucker is 6-7 hrs ahead of us and there are also some west coast cats. Sucker, is a 6-7pm EST draft an issue for you? How about everyone else? I thought 4pm made sense as it is 10ish for Sucker, 1pm for West Coast cats and a pre-dinner slot for east coast dudes. It's not set in stone though...

Since the league doesn't have a unique URL it's not possible to renew it. So technically Bill just created a league with the same settings like last year (he used last years league as a template so to speak).

Only if a league as a unique URL (which can be set either during the league creation process or later on via the Commish Tools) the commish can choose to email last years member and inform them of the renewal (but only if the members didn't completely hid the email).

Since there is now unique URL there's also no history where you can see the results of the previous year(s).

There is a URL now;

You should link last year's results to this year's league. Somewhere in the commish tools should be an option to "edit league history" or something like that.
