Ultimate Fantasy Hockey Pool.

Because of such popular demand in the other thread...

I've started a yahoo league (autodraft) with a cap of 12 teams.

It's a head-to-head league with 25 players per team, divided accordingly with somewhat lax positions. There is a 15 player acquisition limit, so draft wisely. No limits on team to team trades until March 17... a little past the trade deadline .

So if you're up to the challenge, here's the site:

Yahoo Fantasy Hockey

The league ID: 10112
Password: gretzkywho

Sign up soon so that you can pre-rank, and I can autodraft in mid to late September.

Good luck.

Wow, I just checked Yahoo a few days ago and they weren't letting people sign up yet.

Quick work, Mr. Wizard!

how many teams are you going to have?

I have a tough time understanding hockey/basketball fantasy leagues...can you explain how the hockey one works (choosing players nightly to play, how do they score, etc. etc.)

It's super easy, Zoney. It has to be, or I couldn't have done it.

You can rearrange your roster daily (you can do it weeks in advance, actually, thanks to the real game schedule Yahoo gives you) or you can just leave it be. I usually do it in advance and put the players out who are really playing that night.

You go head to head against a team and whoever's players get the most points in real life wins that week. Everything counts--your teams are evaluated on goals scored, goals allowed, +/-, etc.
So, the success of your team depends on consistently good players.

If a player is injured in real life, he's injured on your team too and you have to bench him and put someone else out.

In my league last season, they traded constantly to get the players on hot streaks, so I fell behind really quickly because I don't like to trade.

You have to play, zoney, it's fun!! I won in the consolation league, LOL.

This is a private league.

I have the limit at 12 teams for now... I didn't know how much interest there would be.

There's nothing to it zoney. Just try to pre-rank with the knowledge that we're measuring the stats of:

Skaters: Goals, Assists, Powerplay points, Shorthanded points, +/-, Faceoff Wins, Penalty Minutes, and Game Winning Goals.

So try to get more "complete" players, like Modano, Peca, and Thornton for example.

Goalies: Games Played, Wins, Goals Against Average, Save Percentage, Shutouts.

Pay attention to Games Played...

I looked at the Yahoo rankings... they're not too bad. But I don't know how safe you'll be if you don't edit your pre-rankings.

During the season there is a 15 player acquisition limit. If you don't remember that you're screwed.

Just sign up and ask questions later. I don't mind helping anyone if they need it... you can email me through the site.

It's really not that complicated or involving.

If anyone's still interested I'll be out of town the next few days. Feel free to sign up even if you're not serious about it. I won't be doing the draft until at least mid-Sept... or further if suggested.

Thanks.

*signed up* But slightly confused...as always...

edited to add that my rankings are kind of insane (at least if you go by the initial list...) that won't adversely affect anyone else, I hope?

Finally, Too Many Men has some chicks to reckon with.

Your draft rankings are just to compete with everyone else's--like if we picked the same player, but one of us ranked him higher than the other, the person who ranked him higher will get him. Or should.

So, just rank all the players you know I'll want really low.

In all ways.

There's only one way onto my team, boys.
