    HF GM Games Fantasy Mock Draft #3

    A new version of our mock drafts with some twists on the rules.

    Salary Cap
    • 55M (floor) - 70M (ceiling)
    Trades
    • Limited
    • Two trades total per team
    • A one-day trading period will occur following the conclusion of the draft (e.g., last pick is Saturday, trading period is Sunday, voting begins Monday)
    Contracts
    • 2019-2020 cap hits will be used, excluding bonuses (i.e., use what you see on CapFriendly)
    • Players must have an active contract and have played at least one game in the last two seasons
    Goal
    • To win the Stanley Cup this year
    • There will be secondary awards for "Best Future" (team with the best future) and "Best Drafting GM" (the GM you think drafted the best value overall)
    Restrictions
    • GMs can self-impose restrictions if they so choose (examples include NCAA alumni only, Swedish only, 25 and under only, and more)
    • Any GM who takes on a reasonable (as determined by consensus and LT) restriction will be given an extra $5M ($75M total) in cap space to work with. The cap floor will not apply to any GM who takes on a restriction.
    • If the restriction is broken at the conclusion of the trading period, that GM will lose $15M in cap space ($60M total) and be disqualified from secondary awards
    Playoff Format
    • Once all teams are filled but before the draft begins, the full playoff bracket will be posted
    • All 32 teams will make the playoffs with randomly assigned first round opponents
    • GMs will vote on each matchup to determine who will advance (vote for who you think would win each matchup, not who you think is the best - this provides more nuance to building a quality team)
    • The secondary awards will be voted on separately
    • At the conclusion of the draft, GMs will send in their top 5 teams for each secondary award
    • These will be tallied by the commissioner (who is ineligible to win either award) and a winner for each will be determined
    Drafting/Time Limits
    • The draft will last 20 rounds; Each GM will select 12 forwards, 6 defenders, and 2 goaltenders
    • Clock will run from 10:00 AM EST to 12:00 AM EST (except for first day)
    • We will have a 2 hour clock for Rounds 1-3
    • The clock will be shortened to 1 hour for Rounds 4-14
    • The clock will be shortened to 30 minutes for Rounds 15-20
    • Missed picks will result in auto-skips until all missed picks are made up
    • Any GM who misses 3 picks will have their clock for all remaining picks cut in half
    • Any GM who misses 5 picks will have all future picks auto-skipped
    • Any GM who misses 10 picks will automatically forfeit their first round playoff matchup and be disqualified from secondary awards
    Other Notes
    • Going over the cap or not reaching the cap floor will result in an automatic first round loss and a disqualification from secondary awards
    • You must keep track of your own cap situation and keep this updated in the Roster thread; failure to do so may result in penalties and cap audits
    To join, PLEASE READ ALL RULES and PM me the top 3 teams you would like to have.

    The PandaRankings are now weighted by player values as sorted by PandaScores. Your top three forwards in PandaScores get a weight of 4, your next three 3, your next three 2, and your last three 1. Your top two defencemen get a weight of 4, your next two 3, and your last two 2.

    P.S. I seriously did not expect Pittsburgh to jump into 1st the way that it did, but I guess that's the benefit of my top forwards being McDavid, Guentzel and Tatar. I even lessened the weight of Weighted PandaScores Avg in the final rankings calculations.

    Critically, though, I am also behind two picks, which will drag things down.

    I like both of my teams more than I thought I would after the first 5 rounds. Seemed like my picks were always coming in the evening while I was out and didn't put as much thought into them as I normally would. Definitely would've taken a different direction with Ottawa had I known about this mystery 4-way deal involving New Jersey before the 10th round.

    Kings definitely seem like the favorites though. Pitty still looks good, although I'm not as big on them as I was early on. Feel like people are sleeping on Minnesota a bit. Arizona is very well rounded as well considering the restriction.

    Looking forward to seeing how the matchup format plays out.

    Anthony Mantha 6’5” 225

    Alex DeBrincat 5’7 165

    and as I write that out I am just stunned by how small DeBrincat is.

    This is a good team but I don't see why its the clear favourite. I feel like this is the Crosby effect.

    Pat Maroon (900k) - Sidney Crosby (8.70m) - Brendan Gallagher (3.75m)
    Jesper Bratt (749k) - Mikael Backlund (5.35m) - Jakub Voracek (8.25m)
    Brandon Saad (6.00m) - Jordan Staal (6.00m) - XXXXXXXX
    Brandon Tanev (3.50m) - XXXXXXXX - XXXXXXXX

    Thomas Chabot (863k) - Jeff Petry (5.50m)
    Brendan Dillon (3.27m) - XXXXXXX
    Jake McCabe (2.85m) - XXXXXXX

    Darcy Kuemper (1.85m)
    XXXXXXX

    They have 1 RD, their LWs are good but not spectacular, Cs are good but not spectacular past Crosby, RWs are very good I will say that, but they need 2 more and the pickings are getting slim. Its among my top teams, but its not my clear favourite. I definitely prefer: New Jersey, Toronto, Ottawa, Detroit, Columbus, Winnipeg.

    Also why do 2 teams have Nick Suzuki? Tryamkin and Joey's teams.
