Fantasy Hockey
« on: January 09, 2013, 10:04:00 AM »
Let’s see if we can get a hockey league going between now and the first NHL game on 1/19.
I set up a league on CBSsports.com.  It’s a head-to-head league with the first weekly game starting on 1/19.  To maximize the time we have to recruit players, I have opted not to have a live draft this time, and instead we will have a computer-generated draft on 1/18. The downside to this is that any waiver moves that you make will not take effect for week #1.  Sorry about that, but it is a necessity given the time frame we have between now and the start of the season.

We are going to try to cast a wide net in recruiting possible players, so if you are interested in joining, please do so quickly in order to secure your spot in the league. Also, if you know anyone that you think might be interested in playing, please forward this information on to them. If we cannot get 12 players registered by 1/17, the site will disband the league.

The link to join is: http://freemeeting.0.hockey.cbssports.com/splash/invite/10719/33800/?refcontest=invt_dfcbfe045d9cc7bff47964cdf22ec4fee10f251b10a576db&ttag=FHKF12_em_all_cspt_fhk_linvt_0001

I have a few questions. If we don't get twelve teams, what happens? How does the "Draft" work? Should I keep a night available for picking teams? I hope this doesn't come off as pushy.. I'm just curious.

It doesn't sound pushy at all.

We NEED to have 12 teams by the end of Thursday.  At that point the site will try to lock the league, split it into divisions, create a weekly schedule and set the draft order.  I was hoping that Bill would take the last spot, but to date, he has not responded to multiple invites.  If we can't get someone, I will enroll a dummy, unmanaged team (we had to resort to this last season too). 

Unlike most leagues we run, this one is an automatic draft, rather than a live draft.  The site will draft the players for you this time around. The only effect you can have on this process will be to change the default ranking of the players in the league. If you do that,the  site will choose your players based on your list rather than the default list.

Let me know if you have any more questions, but I do know that I owe you a primer on how to get going in the league once the draft is over.
