The 2011 A Draft Pre-Discussion: ATTN: Bring Back Scuderi, hedberg, chaosrevolver
 
Hey guys,

we are looking at having a Single-A draft, as you all are aware.

there are three other potential participants: VanIslander, BenchBrawl, and myself.

please choose one of these three formats:

1. three picks a day, starting December 23rd and done on the 30th, done in time for a fresh new year
2. take it easy through the holidays, start January 2nd, 2 picks a day
3. equally fine with either

anyone else is free to vote, provided they understand their vote means they are joining the A draft! More entries is, of course, a good thing.

3) Equally Fine With Either

thanks to whoever changed the thread title. this is more clear and concise.

(i wasn't just being sloppy, i was going to just make this a "temporary" thread and delete it when done)

I'm going on winter break and need something to entertain myself, so I'm in. I prefer Option #1.

Rob Scuderi 12-20-2011 01:53 AM

I'm in camp 3 as well. Either option is fine with me so if there's a preference for others that works.

Got your back. ;)

Hedberg 12-20-2011 03:23 AM

Option 3 works for me as well.

BenchBrawl 12-20-2011 03:25 AM

I vote 1 but will be in either way

VanIslander 12-20-2011 09:37 AM

Prefer option 1,... but fine either way.

seventieslord 12-20-2011 01:00 PM

So be it. December 23rd it is. This overlaps with the AA playoffs, so we will be quite busy.

There will be 1931 drafted players and coaches by the time this is done. :yo:

Hockey during the holidays usually means the World Juniors but it'll mean hockey drafting this season! :xcheers: Stockin' up on the eggnog!

VanIslander 12-20-2011 05:33 PM

stop posting more than one post on the other thread!!!

use THIS thread for all pre-draft single-a discussion

use the other Single-A thread only for making one (1) post~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(until everyone has signed up a roster post)

a mod will have to clean up that thread now

BenchBrawl 12-20-2011 05:39 PM

Sorry again , losing these privileges is a pain in the ass not to mention I didn't deserve it at all.I really hope I can get them back before the ATD.

you will eventually

no big problem with the mistake... as long as others don't copy the habit!! Let's have a neat, orderly roster post formation. It's much easier to compare teams to have them all together, and it's nicer for posterity's sake (thread will be linked for reference in future draft years).

Hobnobs 12-21-2011 05:20 AM

seems its already decided but option 3 for me :)

VanIslander 12-21-2011 07:38 AM

We have eight (8) teams already signed up !!!!!!!!!!!!! :amazed: That's friggin' awesome! That's 200 more picks.

chaosrevolver 12-21-2011 02:30 PM

Bursa Janissaries ready to fight.

BillyShoe1721 12-21-2011 02:34 PM

Are we going to have playoffs? If not, I'm going to be a lot more adventurous about my team. I kind of prefer we don't have playoffs because it will allow for riskier picks and possibly great new discoveries.

Rob Scuderi 12-21-2011 02:43 PM

Any hopes of a short-list guiding me through this draft were dashed. More people wanna do the A than AA, crazy.

Also I think Billy's onto something with that idea. I didn't even think playoffs for the AA would have be necessary, not that I'm opposed to them at all, and it definitely would have those advantages. I just wonder how sincere we're going to be able to be in our judgments at this level. Having a more extensive all-star process could still let us go to bat for our guys, without it getting quite so messy :dunno:

BillyShoe1721 12-22-2011 09:59 PM

I'm guessing picks start at noon tomorrow?

Yep. Friday at noon.

tony d 12-22-2011 10:23 PM

After discussions this morning me and Dave have both decided to sit this 1 out after all. There's 8 teams here, that should be enough. I won't speak for Dave but I'll be back with a solo entry for the ATD. I'll watch this 1 from the sidelines as I did last year. Good luck to everyone and I anticipate seeing who gets picked.
