Hey gang, I opted to rework my idea for the new fantasy draft I want to run for a number of reasons. The last one took so long to get going I felt worried that a few of the GMs had perhaps lost interest. Also, I felt the rules were a bit more complicated than necessary and preferred just to simplify them... The way I figure it, it's better to do that sort of thing now then later and if a GM really was still interested in the other league, he can just sign up for this new idea. The framework of this league should be fairly straightforward. The cap will be $50M, get the salaries (last years) from USAToday.com, 30 rounds with NHL teams and players, trades allowed (just make sure you have 20 players to fill out your roster at the end of the draft) and please take two teams each (preferably back to back to keep things from dragging on and on). The draft order will be based on this years entry draft and will be zig-zag. All drafted players (2004 included) are eligible. To start us off, the time limit will be 12 hours per pick, but this is subject to change. In previous leagues I've been in, we put in time slots, that might be somewhat effective here mind you with a certain amount of tinkering... If you can't handle two teams, we'll still take you, it's just a preference that you take two. And to clarify this isn't a league, it's just a fun draft for bragging rights. Perhaps we could do a series of polls at the end to determine which team is the best overall, has the best goaltending, the best defense, etc... Good practice for real leagues and a lot less demanding of everyone's time. If someone wants to step up to the plate and make this into a league, go for it, but I don't really want to at this point... Any questions can be asked via PM or posted here. It might even be a good idea for us to circulate MSN names and emails if we want to make dealing and what not work better.
