Default 2010-2011 Fantasy Hockey. Who's in?

OK, gang.

There's a long-running FFB league here on HBT. We've had a great season for fantasy baseball.

How about some Fantasy Hockey?

Come on, you know you want to. I've done a couple of fantasy hockey teams before, but first-timers are more than welcome. I'd hope for this to be an annual thing, keepers and all.

So, PM me an e-mail address if you want in. There are no open slots remaining, although I can open things up later if there's enough interest.

Some details:

  • It's a free ESPN league, so no cost to play. Side bets and smack-talk are encouraged, though.
  • The scoring format is head-to-head for points. Team owners are welcome (and, in fact, requested) to review the scoring system and give input on it prior to the draft.
  • Draft is tentatively scheduled for October 2, 2010, 7 PM ET. The draft will be a live snake draft, with draft order randomized just prior to the draft. The date can be adjusted if there's enough interest. If you can't make a live draft, ESPN will happily autopick for you.
The league is now full and closed. See you guys on the ice!


So, who's in?


Here's the list of players who have been invited and have joined. Invites go out on a first-come, first-served basis, based on when you PM me an e-mail address to send the invitation to. Just posting in this thread guarantees nothing.
Code:
EAST Division
#	OWNER		Team
1	jds		5280 Enforcers
2	MMTG		Lipstick City Lotharios
3	robpez		NJ Swamprats
4	eagle61		Frozen Desert Rats
5	Homercidal	Crossroads RC Brewers

WEST Division
#	OWNER		Team
6	jpc		Team Roid Rage
7	Brewmiser       Bavarian BrewCrew	
8	bryanj          Team Jackson
9	MMTG's brother  Fatdome Jackoffasaurus
10	DMCarson        Team Carson
Waiting list: neko

Game on, you goons.

There's been a league here for the past two seasons. However, I haven't seen a notice on it yet for this season.

I played in a league on HBT a couple of years ago, but it fell apart just prior to the NHL season last year. I was kind of bummed, because by then it was too late to really get a league going. I'm trying to avoid that disappointment this year.

I knew last year was late getting started, that's why I bailed. Did it fall apart all together?

I'm always intrigued by this, but I've never done a fantasy league. (Actually I did once, but never figured it out). I'd like to join in, but I'd need some coaching to get started. And it doesn't take too much time does it? School is starting and dance and all the related activities that teens involve their parents in.

It's really pretty simple. We'll spend a couple of hours on a Saturday evening drafting players, then you need about 20 minutes a week to set your lineups.

Of course, preparing for the draft and following all the hockey news can take as much time as you want to let it, but it's really a pretty small commitment. The software's easy to use, and there's plenty of good information on ESPN. You don;t even have to rank players before the draft if you don't want to. ESPN's default rankings are usually pretty good.

Go on, PM me an e-mail address, then go pick up the fantasy copy of The Hockey News. No better time than the present.

Is there any place I can go that has a direct, simple explanation of how it works? It was a couple of years ago that I last even looked at it.

The one aspect that appeals to me, besides the side bets and trash talk, is that it will help me get a feel for some of the other teams that I would normally have nothing to do with during the regular season. Get a peek at some good young players too.

Here are some of the basic rules: http://games.espn.go.com/fhl/content...rulesindex2011

There's a lot of information there. Keep in mind that our scoring system is H2H for points:

Quote:
Head-to-Head: Points: "H2H" Points is very similar to how fantasy football is played. Teams play each other one-on-one on a rotating schedule throughout the season, much like in the NBA. This format allows you to assign a given point value to individual statistical categories (i.e. Assists=3, Rebound=1, etc.) and each scoring period's winner is determined solely by which team accumulates the most fantasy points versus a single opponent. The end result is a win (1-0-0), loss (0-1-0) or tie (0-0-1). If selected, your league will have team schedules/playoffs and you will have the option to setup divisions.
