    Agreed. Huge props to @m0pe for coordinating this all while not even playing himself. This is the first auction draft I’ve actually enjoyed. Thanks!

    I'm really happy with my team... apart from the 2nd pairing of defense. Basically the Heiskanen-McAvoy pairing will be playing half the game.

    @m0pe thanks for running I really enjoyed this

    I'm bored of school now and have more spare time so I can run the next game, be it a prospect draft (what I want to play), full 31/32 team fantasy draft or something else, though GM games I'm likely out on

    Feel extremely good about the forwards and defence. Feels like I've got some of the better depth while still having the top end talent. Goaltending is questionable, but that seems to be an issue for a handful of teams :laugh:

    When you don't spend double digit million on your players you have extra money for depth ;) (and I only thought I was gonna get one of Demelo/Jokiharju, lol). In hindsight I'd probably use Trochek/Dunn's salary on a golatending upgrade, but you live and learn!

    I mean he is under the cap limit as is so doesn't need to drop.

    But everyone else has a 12/6/2 roster so whoever is his #7 won't factor into voting

    Wait, were we allowed to bid below a player's current cap hit?!

    Right. Right. That explains Kris Russell at 1m.

    Most rosters updated and voting thread will be up shortly.

    @Panda Bear and @OB5 update your final rosters in the roster thread ASAP if you want to have the lines set up the way you want, otherwise I will just throw in the last couple guys you selected myself.

    It looks like @scrappylilnobody (not been around since day 5) or @PaulBissonnette (over cap/uncompleted roster) will not be in the voting unless they do something here quick; so 2 people will have a bye to the quarterfinals.

    That's a shame, I thought Toronto had a real solid team.

    Same, they only had a couple spots left to fill too and are at 100m basically without them. But not much that can be done when I made the timeline for the game pretty clear.

    Could be a big blessing for whoever gets him as a round 1 draw.

    Voting thread is up for round 1. Vote for 1 team in each matchup; A,B,D,E,F,G

    Due to disqualified teams, Dallas gets a bye through matchup C and Philadelphia gets a bye through matchup H.

    The F and G Matchups are the tough ones for me. 4 good teams there.
