I feel the same way. I've only been part of two all-time drafts and two minor league drafts. I'm not about to jump up and down pointing fingers at people.

Heck, my first team (while I liked it) absolutely didn't fit the mould of a successful ATD team. I've learned a ridiculous amount about hockey history by being part of the drafts. I'm way more prepared for this now than I was the first time. In fact I'm pretty confident that if things don't get as crazy as they were presonally during the last minor league draft, that I'm gonna give people a run for their money this time.

However, the draft is like the HFBoard country club now. With so many people kind of entrenched in their spot how do you go about bringing new guys in? Kind of hard to have a set criteria isn't it. Especially for me when I wonder if I'd have got a team the first time under these circumstances. Yet we don't want to turn it into one of those random mock drafts where people don't put in the time or effort to make it something special.

Maybe absolutely 100% new people should take a run in the minor league draft first in the future?

Actually, they were running away from Stalin, so it was probably a bit before that.

I live in Kiel, by the way.
They were my grandpa´s tapes. My grandma and grandpa watched so much live-hockey and some games he taped. Quality was crap as it was an early camera model. But still it was a joy to watch. Still looking for the tapes. Since my granddad is dead a lot of his stuff is lost. Hopefully grandma didn´t throw them away. It would be a shame.

Btw, running away from Stalin is a smart thing to do. Just read a biography. Words fail me.

I don't mean to come across as snobby or anything, I just know that this draft isn't easy and takes a commitment, so, I'd like to believe that people can put the effort in and have the base knowledge to not be scrambling by round 10.

My only concern is someone dropping out in the middle of the draft. Everyone has to start somewhere but what would piss me off is people dropping off in the middle of this thing right when I will be constructing my lineup with famous lines.

Which is why co-gms are prefered. 1) The buddy system should reduce bailings. 2) If someone bails, the Co-GM becomes a solo gm.

That's what happens when Dallas Smith hits someone in the corners

Thanks for mentioning me as a possible GM, I am grateful. However, I have a crazy Fall ahead of me as I begin to apply and interview for academic positions. As a result, I do not think I could give the effort and commitment that both the group and I want.

I would like to offer my services for a division's playoff write-up once the draft is completed

FlyersHomer DM03 is out as a possibility, as he seems to be in the midst of one of his several month long MIA periods.

nik jr has confirmed interest, so he has a spot.

Still waiting on Spitfire11 and The_Hockey_Guy18.

Once we get all the GMs confirmed, I'd really like it if we went ahead and held the lottery and set the draft order, even if we're going to wait another couple of weeks for the actual draft. Gives GMs more time to work trades and set real targets instead of hypotheticals based on a draft position that isn't set yet.

+1

Trading happens in every real NHL draft, and I -- for one -- would like to have time to move up / down and position myself to have a shot at certain players. Would like to see 7 days between determining draft position and Bobby Orr coming off the board.

Van Islander, can you edit the first post in the thread to indicate who has a team / team name / which GM's are still pending, etc?

Actually, this is a good idea. It took us three days to get through the first 10 picks of the last draft, and five days to complete the first round. If guys know well in advance when they're picking (instead of the usual 24-48 hours), it might help acellerate the first round.

Are you or are you not one of the guys that demanded that we ignore the set start date last draft and get underway several days early?

Since it looks like we have our picks, can someone post the draft order?
