Count me in too. This can at least give me something to cheer since the Leafs aren't going to be in contention this year.

Spoken like a fellow Leafs fan. No matter how much we complain about them we always end up watching the games and hoping they might actually make the playoffs.

"Winnipeg Jets" (I'm still stuck in the past) is ready to go.

Weird: "Your league will not be permitted to conduct its draft if it contains an odd number of teams."

We need to keep it even, which we are currently not with 9 teams.

Invite sent. Looks like it is filling up. I'm not sure why they require an even number of teams to draft. You think they could just throw a bye into the rotation if it is odd numbered. We're two teams shy of filling the league, so I don't think we'll have to worry. We can add two at a time from here out if there is more interest.

League is full with 12 teams ready to go. Lots of returnees from last year and some new folks. Should be fun. Let me know if you think any of the settings/scoring need adjusted.

First time in the DVDTalk league. Playing fantasy hockey for YEARS.

Looking forward to it. (And playing at a board where people are active and will converse about the season, both real and fantasy.)

I just noticed that the draft is scheduled for this Thursday. Is there a reason for it being so early? The Leafs training camp starts Friday (I assume this is about the same time for other teams as well). Does it make sense to have a draft without knowing who will make the opening day roster?

Because the season starts early in Europe, all drafts have to be completed by Sunday September 28 for Yahoo head-to-head leagues. So we're about 10 days before that. I think a lot of teams will be finishing up their camps after that. I'm not sure making it later will tell you a ton more about a team. There will be 218 players drafted (since we have four BN spots). Things start to even out a bit around there anyway where there isn't a ton of difference in talent and stats. There's always waivers too, so you can grab someone later.

The only problem I have, and this is every year, is non-competing teams i.e. play the first month of the season and then drop off the face of the earth. We need to weed these teams out if possible.

I won't be able to be in the draft tonight because I have to be in a real draft for my Power Wheelchair Hockey tonight at 6:15pm. I can't get into the league either. Can someone help?

In the past, Dr_Evil has given notice to absent managers and then disbanded the teams to waivers.
