Yahoo NHL pool

I saw another post on canucklehead's season pool, and the thread is up to like 12 pages.. and one question for you guys..

are you guys writing down your own draft or something? or you guys joined a paid-membership league or free league?

there is a Yahoo league, where there are a maximum of 12 teams I believe and each team will select 9 forward and 4 D, and 3 bench spots plus 3 goalies...

Is there a hfboard canucks fan league already? if yes, is it full? whats its league ID/password?

if not, anyone wanna form a league of 12 teams? season is starting next week, we can select over this weekend..?

Avantage of this will be that, this will be a live draft, which will be done within an hour.. downside is.. you have to be there at the time of draft.. which is set arbitrarily according to our preference.. if you are not there to select, yahoo will select for you according to the highest rank available player.

this is the website address..

http://hockey.fantasysports.yahoo.com/hockey

you need a yahoo email to sign in.. and once you sign in, just create a team and they will ask you if you want to join a public league or custom league.. So, anyone want to start a Canucks fan league?

I have 1 team.. and was thinking if anyone here would start one for HF boards canucks fan... and make it to 12 team maximum.. and that'd be fun... plus we could talk about it here or something...

I could start one and set the draft day/time at. .say.. October 4th.. (saturday) time.. umm.. i dont know.. night better? or afternoon? since Saturday night is hangout night for most of people.. on PST time BTW.

How about this, I will create a team.

whoever joins first gets in.. and I believe the maximum is 20 teams.. this is my first year trying this league as well.. so i am just as newbie as anyone.

So, I will make this a 20 team league. no maximum # of trades/player acquisitions.

If there is fewer than 6-8 teams by Saturday 12pm PST, I will delete the league, since its not fun to have too few teams competing.


IMPORTANT NOTE:

your Draft position will be determined according to FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS.. meaning, if you join the league 2nd, you choose 2nd in first round, and 3rd, then you choose 3rd in first round.. then continues.. since I created the league, I wil lbe selecting first overall, and etc etc...

All experts/newbie are welcomed here!!

ALSO, If the draft time is NOT good for most of you, I can change it, but MUST let me know or post here before Saturday noon.. and remember to log on at 1:15pm for your draft!! if you miss it, its your loss. :)

yes, done that, ur selecting 3rd, and 4th is Cougers.

dont worry, everything should be in order!
4 teams already within 15 min.. I guess we could have up to 15-20 teams!!

this be fun!!! and HARD to draft..

PS. if you would like more scoring types, let me know. I am not too sure what to count and what not to..

I.E.. I could make each face off won count as something
:)

Remember, Saturday, 1:15pm PST!! and draft starts at 1:30pm!!!

for goalies I would only have wins, ties, shut outs. I'm not sure how it works exactly.. can you set it for differnt points for differnt stuff.. IE

2 points for a win, 2 points for a shut out, but only 1 point for a tie..

but I do like having plus minus and short handed goals.
Whatever.. btw I'm the cougers

OK, I dont think I can control how many points for goals, or assists, or winning goal..from the tool, I can only select which stat category will count, and how they count it is standard for all yahoo leagues I think...
So, say if I do select shutout as an counting criteria, if Cloutier gets a shutout win.. he will get points for his WIN + points for the shutout.. but how many I dont know... :(


So, save % shouldnt count then? only the Win/shutout/tie..? I had that, but was thinking if I should include save %..

nah, its everyone's league.. no one is starting it.. thats why I start one..

but I think i will make this as simple as possible.. so.. just win/tie/shutouts.. and for the forward/defensemen, only goals/assist/PP points/Game winning Goal/SH points/PIM and +/- will count..

I just did a live draft with my friend's league.. damn.. it was FUN.. too bad i had 2nd overall, I had Bertuzzi on my lineup, my friend took Forsberg #1.. :(

and I have no Goalie.. the best available to me was Cechmanek/Salo... :(

But I have an all star lineup I think.. satisfied with it.


anyway, those who wants to join, come on join!!! It be more fun if there are 6-10 teams.. right now, we have 6 today.

Great!!!

8 Teams is enough to compete!!..

Remember, the LIVE DRAFT starts TOMORROW, Saturday 1:30PM SHARP!! You can enter Live Draft screen starting at 1PM .. If you want to pick who you want, be there!! otherwise, Yahoo will pick for you according to the ranking!! ( whether they are signed/injured/retired or not!)

I will change time ONLY if over 4 people who cant show up.

Also, YOU can set your own drafting list BEFORE tomorrow, if you cant show up. I.E. the Ranking says Forsberg is #1, Bertuzzi is #2, Naslund #3.. If you picking 3rd over all, Computer will pick according to the Yahoo ranking. BUT in your own list, you can have Naslund #1, Forsberg #2, Bertuzzi #3.. and etc.. than the live draft, if you not there, will be drafted according to your own list.. If you DO making up ur own list.. I suggest you include all the top players according to who you want, and including about top 100 players that You would draft.. its easy, just click to select ur list and save it online.


A note, IF the # of teams is fewer than 10, ( we have 8 now), I will increase roster size from 16 to 20!

i dont think so.


I didnt set the league in a way that commissioner has the power to reject any trade.. which means.. be careful of what you click on.. because once you click on accept trades.. its done.. so.. if u accidentally traded your entire team for 1 player.. it could happen.. :)


ya.. if you set the pre-ranking according to your preference.. you'd be find in the draft.. as long as yahoo dont pick those ranked high, but retired players. such as.. Svehla.. Tverdovsky.( in russia). kekeke

There are still quite a few decent pickups available in the free agent pool now.. :)0

Trades are encouraged, but sometimes, if you get ripped off in a trade, i.e. Bertuzzi for Svehla (retired).. and u clicked "accept trade" accidentally, I can reverse trades for you under some circumstances, proving that you did accidentally trade your top player for a retired one, and the other guy tried to rip you off, or your computer was down and made the decision and etc.

ya, but what i meant was, under normal circumstances, a decent knowledge NHL fan knows its not gonna happen.. and sometimes, like me, my comp almost just screwed up... so it could send the wrong trade..

and i assume the 10 teams we have.. may not compete everynight.. but we all decent to well knowledged about the NHL.. :)

just afraid it could come to that and someone posting saying.. "damn this guy just traded Tverdovsky for my Bertuzzi!!!!! "

Awesome. I just tried to dump three guys (Tverdovsky included) and pick up well... three that are better. It says the deals are "pending until Oct 5 11:59pm PT;" hopefully they all go through. If they do, I took a chance on one by dumping age, experience, and the fact that the player is playing for a Western Conference powerhouse, for youth that plays for a weak Eastern Conference team but was still able to light it up last season (and hopefully improve again this season).

The other two deals should be sound upgrades.

If these go through I'll be super happy. I also hope Hasek can return to form soon and that his return will rejuvenate Cheli and bring him closer back to his 2001-2002 form. heh heh

Savard, Marc (C-Atl) C
Nieuwendyk, Joe (C-Tor)

Looking for a G

Doan/Stillman can be touched if G in return is a top line goalie OR a decent G + decent D...

I'm pretty much ready to go into the season with what I have, and I am pretty satisfied with the l/u, except G.

and Black Ace..

straight Stillman for Salo, I am not too sure, because Stillman is the one or 2 scoring LW I have... for him, I'd like more than T. Salo.. :)

thanks.

I just found out that there is an option that other GM can reject a trade between certain teams.

But if we do this, then each trade will have to go through every GM, meaning every person has to click Accept for the trade to go through, which is a nice option ONLY IF all players at least check the yahoo every couple days..

Should I turn this on then or what??

maybe I should have said only "decently NHL knowledged " players to join.. sigh.. never thought this be that big a bust

Bah, I build a good team too, and I screw up? Well, maybe I should make this a league where every GM has to go through, I can return players if people in league too lopsided. Oh, and give u back the players originally on your team that you have.

Your logic is hilarious, Philly. While I don't doubt that you did offer this guy your benchwarmers for two first rate players, you know as well as I that he isn't playing the game. Up until your big "fair and square trade" he still had Heatley, Svehla, among others on his roster. If you look at his roster right now you'll see everyone you gave him is still on the bench and he has a bunch of holes up front. This guy doesn't give a **** about the game and you used that to your advantage, which if this is the way you want this game to be played is fine. But it's not fair to the others. As for me, I lost interest in the fairness of competition when I saw that trade. And I'm sure a bunch of others did too. Anyways, it's your pool, do what you want, I've already joined another pool.

Fair enough.

I dont want the game to be played this way. You could have a better approach dealing with this. I can trade back for whoever I traded for. I dont care as long as the league is played as a league is supposed to play. Instead, you went ahead and drop everyone and make a big fuzz about this like a 10 year old. I agree I tried to take advantage, but I didn't think he would care about playing this less. My mistake, I appologize. This was supposed to be fun. To be honest with you, the proposal was just for fun, didnt think it would go through and I wanted to take off the proposal today after work tonight ( Which by the way, the proposal only lasted less than 20 hours), then the first thing I see is you making a big fuzz. Bah, have it your way, and grow up.
