Are any of you guys down to a hockey pool for the upcoming NHL season? I know there are a lot of mothercanuckers on this board and a lot of hockey fans. We've done this for NFL and other stuff, so let's see if we can get a hockey pool going.
Who's interested? I am sure we can find some sort of website or something.
wafb, I'm not familiar with how Yahoo works. I'm going to check it out right now.
Edit: I'm creating a league on Yahoo right now. It's going to be called "MMA Forum" and the password will be "mmahockey".
I think an offline draft will be the best, or we can arrange a time for a live draft. If you guys want to do a live draft, I'm thinking this upcoming weekend. For an offline draft, we do it here, throughout the course of the upcoming weeks and then I can manually enter it. It's up to you guys.
I will accept registerations until Friday, September 19. Our draft will take place here, at MMAF, starting Saturday. We will be drafting 16 rounds, so it may take sometime. Don't worry, season doesn't start till the 29th.
Just a few suggestions to make creating it a little easier in regards to settings. I've had success in the past with the following:
Scoring Type Rotisserie
Max Teams 12
Max Acquisitions per Season No maximum
Max Trades per Season No maximum
Trade End Date March 5, 2009
Trade Review Commissioner
Trade Reject Time No Protests
Waiver Time No waivers
Can't Cut List None
Post Draft Players Free Agents
League Start Date Monday, Sep 29
Roster Changes Daily - Tomorrow
Maximum Games Played No maximum
Goals Against Average
Personally, I don't like having penalty minutes as a category. Scrubs like Carcillo end up being fantasy gold when in reality their coaches bench them every other night for making careless decisions that hurt the team...
"I don't dink anyone en dis division can endure my riddum."
The whole no waivers and free agency thing makes it easier I guess, but it makes it too easy. People can just draft and drop players between games. Then it just becomes a matter of who is the most active in the game and who is willing to be on at all times, as opposed to who drafted the best team.
