HFChat's 2nd Annual Mock Draft (The Big One!) Last year, we held a Mock Draft on HFChat (then #gamenightchat) and had about 40 people show up and it was a hell of a success. I'm aiming for 60 people this time! We had a mock draft just last week, but that was a mere warmup. This one is the real deal. The date for this mock draft has not been set yet, but you can expect it to happen near the end of May. I will update this thread long before then and send out PM's regarding when it will be exactly, so don't worry too much about this. *** Please also note *** The draft will be held in a chat room, not on a thread or on these boards. If you have questions about the chat room and how to access it, PM me. Here are the rules. These are subject to change too, but I doubt they will much: 1. - The draft will be in the order set by the NHL (in other words, division adjustments & lottery adjustments). The only difference is that we do not have a Cup winner. Usually the Cup winner goes in 30th place. Since nobody has won the cup yet, and won't by the time of the draft, we'll have to stick Detroit in 30th spot (since they were 1st in the season).. of course Washington has that pick now. 2. - The draft will go through 2 rounds, not just 1. 3. - Each team will be allowed one head GM and two asst. GM's (Up to 5 assistants if you really want to get up there) as a team. Note that a GM does not HAVE to allow for assistants, but can if he wants to. This is handy since it solves problems of having people potentially not showing up, there will still be a GM around to do the draft. 4. - Each team will be alloted up to 5 minutes to either draft, or make a trade. Yes, I will be allowing trades. This means that teams without 1st round picks will still be entertaining to play as. 5. - I will also allow up to 5 'Reserve GM's'. This is not for a particular team, but if they show up of the day of the draft in chat, and some team happens to be missing (I really hope this doesn't happen, but you never know), a reserve GM can take their place. ------------------------------------------------ I also reserve the right to remove anyone as GM or asst. GM if they aren't going to, or even 'might not' show up. It'll for sure be a Saturday or Sunday, and don't worry, you'll know the date of the draft well in advance. If you have any questions, just ask on this thread or PM me. Teams: Anaheim Mighty Ducks Head GM: ducksflytogether Asst. GM: 10.16.1974 Asst.

Seabass 3. 4. 5. * The following guys are not 'hometown fans' of the teams they chose to GM, which means that if a fan of said team wants to GM, he will be given preference ---------------------------------- I will post the draft order at a later time. There is PLENTY of time to sign up for a team or as an assistant GM. If you wish to become an assistant, you must PM the head GM first, then if he agrees, the head GM must PM me or post on this thread. You cannot simply ask to be an assistant on this thread without the GM giving the say so. It's a lot of rules, but when it's structured like this, there's no 'What do we do now?' questions. Consider this mock draft just like an NHL draft in a lot of ways. I will be the commishioner and I reserve the right to do just about anything to this draft or during the draft .. and yes, I'll be Head GM of the Vancouver Canucks at the same time. Conflict of interest? Yep, but you'll have to trust me I'll be unbiased on this one. Any questions/concerns/ideas, PM me or post on this thread!
