    I feel ya on that. I feel I have a very solid team also and seem to have hit a tailspin and bad luck facing guys who went nuts that week. I plan on adding if it makes sense. Kind of in Holland 2010-2016 mode, get just enough to get in and go from there.

    Someone take eberle from me. I can never seem to start him when he plays well. He might be leading the league in bench points.

    Lehner. Zuccarello. Strome. Lindell. Shaw. Those are all great rentals. OEL is a great keeper piece I just probably don't have room for. Maybe a bigger name veteran ala Kopitar for a high potential player that's not quite producing to his level yet, but your window is now.

    Krejci, Henrique, Nelson, Nyquist, Fogliano, Niskaen, Faulk, Nielson, Sergachev, Jenner, Mrazek, Ward, Bernier

    Maybe: Mantha, Keller, Kotkaniemi

    I know it's nice to have positional flexibility and all, but can we mandate that people carry a set number of goalies next year? The better teams in the league are carrying four plus goalies and the worst teams haven't caught on yet.

    If we want to have a more competitive league I think it would help.

    I know my season turned around when I got lucky in grabbing McElhinny and Nilsson and they just took off. By the same token, I had the most scraping by weeks when Varlamov turned to crap for awhile and I didn't have those two others guys yet to come out of nowhere to boost the position.

    There is such a finite number of goalies, too, that it's hard to get on that wagon if you're late to the show. I mean, right now there are a handful of backups still available, but they're likely to play so sporadically that it probably makes it hard to put them on your roster outside of trying to fit them in for a specific game or two while dropping some bottom end forward/D, only to drop the goalie afterward and pickup another forward/D.

    In theory, teams would have to be sacrificing some quality in their skaters to load up at goalie. The talent pool for skaters is so deep, though, that you can still grab some reasonable depth there.

    So I think next year I'm not going to join unless there's a cash buy in. I've seen this happen in every "fun" fantasy football league I've ever joined. There's too many free wins being handed out by a team not updating rosters or starting players. Cash creates an incentive to keep showing up.

    And yeah, my team is now incredible because I play a million goalies. We'll want to tweak that somehow.

    well a cash buy would pretty much guarantee my exit. Isn't it just aarons team thats never updated? I think with this plattform as a board for our league, there is already a incentive to show up. And i must admit, fantasy hockey has made me an addict :D

    weren't there guys who wanted to participate who were to late in the beginning? Hand them one of the teams that never seems to be updated

    Didn't I suggest toning them down or limit the number of goalies carried and get sass from you??? Is this just standard commissioner treatment??? :razz:
