If you're going to do that, you might as well just go strictly with forwards.
Just my opinion. You should try another league sometime that uses PIMs so you can see the difference. I think it makes things more balanced.
Yeah, maybe I'll see how this goes and maybe do a more traditional league next year. The only reason I'm even playing is because this guy asked me to join his league since he knows I'm a hockey fan.
