Neowin Fantasy Hockey Season 2008-09

Its up, who normally creates the league? I want in!

Due to a last minute departure, we were left with an odd number of players and Yahoo would not allow us to have a live draft in that situation. Faced with only 2 minutes before an automatic draft, bayrider was forced to delete the league. The good news is that he has created a new league. Please see the updated information below.
Okay, here are the new settings.

Bayrider did the main league last year. I set up the secondary league.

We did talk about making a keeper league that would allow us to draft some of the younger kids and keep them from season to season.

Apparently it is new to Yahoo this year:

Keeper Leagues

* Build your dynasty by keeping your best players each season

* Salvage a down year by trading for next year's stars

* Change your league's live draft order based on custom keeper rules

Eh... Not sure if I like that you keep players between seasons. I like the idea of having to re-draft each season so that everybody starts off with a clean slate.

Either way though, I'm in :yes:

We had two leagues last year. I suggest one of each. If there is room, I'll probably play both.

Lets get it going. Sign me up for both if there is room.

I can renew last year's league as it is a new option now. Let's get a few more people in here that are interested in maintaing a team throughout the entire season and I'll fire her back up.

Send me a message when the fantasy league starts up again! I'm looking to be the first two-time winner!

(Yes, I am still trying to relive my only successful season by bragging about it. But it's trash talk, even if I'm poor at it!)

The draft date isn't firm. If you have any concerns about the draft date I'll do what's best so that we can get as many people there as possible

If a Mod can sticky this and rename it to Neowin.net Fantasy Hockey League 2008-09 I'd appreciate it!

Can a Mod can rename to title to "Neowin Fantasy Hockey Season 2008-09" and sticky this to the top so we can get some more exposure and fill up the league :)

thanks

Done. Did you set this up as a keeper league?

It's fine if you didn't as we may need to create a second league anyway.

I've joined... This'll be my first time doing a fantasy league, so I don't expect to be that great. I've always wanted to do on for like the past 10 years, lol.
