    All spots taken!

    Hey,

    I've decided after missing 3 weeks of the internet (freak thing) and being pushed out of Danrik's Draft because of my absence, I thought I'd create one of these on my own. I have no experience running one on my own, but I've participated in many fantasy drafts before and I think I can do it.

    Now, since this is my first time running one and many of them barely get completed, I've decided my objective is make sure this thing gets finished. For this to happen, I've thought of a nice simple but also new way to start out with.

    First things first, just like the title says, this will be a prospects only draft. If your thinking at this moment it'd be simplier to use NHL players instead your wrong, because prospects will work much better with my idea, and I'll tell you what I mean.

    The bases of the draft is 12 rounds (6F, 4D, 1G, 1extra), snake draft (random.org for positions) and there will be 12 teams. With 12 teams and 12 rounds that makes for 144 prospects. First half should be easy, second half a little more harder with a little more thinking. Overall shouldn't be all that hard to do. Prospects will go by HockeysFuture standards, 65 games and under make a prospect.

    Ok, so what's new about this? Your drafting twice, but the second time is the keeper. Why do this? I'll explain.

    With the first round everyone will draft who they think is the next best prospect at there selection each round. You will not be drafting for your team in this round, your just making a list with the 11 other people to make the best top 144 prospects you guys can together.

    After it's all completed you will then have a list of the top 144 prospects made by you guys to make your team. The list is there to influence you with your picks to possibly make it more comfortable on you to build your prospect team. The list should also help you in knowing what type of people you are up against. Use the list to the best of your ability. ;)

    I also want to point out that everyone is expected to make honest selections when making the best top 144 prospects together. I would think it would be a lot better this way.

    ... still not crystal clear on how this is gonna work (is it one "draft" of 12 rounds just to name the 144 eligible draftees? then 12 round of real picking? or something else?) ... but it sounds like fun, nevertheless ... so ...

    the South Texas Tuskens would like to join the fray ...

    EDIT: and I like the "drafting undrafted prospects" idea as well ...

    You know I like the idea of drafting undrafted players, but only players 1987 born and older. After that I think it's just too young. Good suggestion, monster_bertuzzi.

    And gonzopher, we do a first draft to make the best 144 prospects together, but you don't have to pick anyone from that list if you don't want to in the second draft, which is the real one. The list is just there to influence you in the best way you can use it.

    Thanks for signing up guys, we got 8 more people to go... :)

    No problem.

    In the first draft your not building your team, but helping to formulate a top 144 list with the other 11 teams, and this list is there to influence your picks in the second draft.

    The way we make the top 144 prospects is each team will pick who they think is the next best prospect when there turn in up until we reach the point of number 144.

    Hope that helps... ;)

    It's all good. I am happy to answer your questions.

    For your first question, yes that is exactly what were doing. Second question, yes were doing that too, but only players 1987 and older. I figure after that it's pretty much too young.

    Glad you decided to join and you too golleafsgo_17.

    Only two more to go!

    I am thinking we could have this done by tonight and start tomorrow morning.
