Shouldn't really make much of a difference except for playoff seeding. Do you take the top 3 from each division, or do division winners get a bye and then it's 3-6 in the conference regardless of division. Also I might be in the minority but I would go for an 8 team playoff, it should be harder to make the playoffs then miss even if it's only for bragging rights.

I like the idea of four divisions, but how would playoffs work? Tops in division get top seeds then just go by the records or would it be three from each division?

I was thinking this:

2 divisions:

Top 2 in each division get a bye, 3-6 in each play, winners play top 2.

4 division with conferences (2 div per conf):

Each division winner (2) get byes, 3-6 in each conference play, winners play division winners

4 divisions without conferences:

Each division winner gets a bye. 5-12 play, winners are re-seeded to play division winners.

As for your bolds.

1. I can't remember if you can choose to have people in division play more often or not, so that may be a factor in terms of the schedule.

2. I thought about that, but I also thought 16 could make it in. I think 12 is a happy medium to where you still have to put in work to get there but you don't put in a boatload of work to barely miss it. Plus NHL has 16 of 30 make it, which is >50%, so I was aiming for barely over 50%.

I'm fine with either of those.

Because of my schedule this week (street hockey tomorrow, Rutgers football Thursday), there's a good chance the league will be put together tonight. If not, Wednesday.

Expect a PM from me by Wednesday. Once you have registered, PLEASE respond to my PM with your team name so I can match your user name to team name.

Also, since there are others that do want to get involved but the league is full, you will have 7 days to get signed up so I can schedule in the draft and give us time to make final tweaks to the rules.

No exceptions to the 7 days. After the end of the 7th day, if you haven't signed up, your spot will be opened first come first serve to anyone who responds to it in this thread.

Once everyone is signed up, we'll get a concensus of a few dates for potential draft dates, and pick the best one from there.

I'm pretty happy with 2 Lines of LW-C-RW, 2 of F-F-F, 3 D-D. Not sure if we want to do 1 or 2 G (the reason I argue 1 G is you may have a Top 5 goalie with 2 games or a decent "backup" with 4 games, it gives the backup some time to play as well and makes having to make difficult decisions a challenge and, honestly, fun).

As for benched players, I'm thinking 1 LW, 1 RW, 1 C, 1 F, 2 D, and 1 G. Any comments on that?

I think that is pretty good I am starting to get real excited for this.

Also did we come to an agreement on 4 divisions?

I say do 1G keep it realistic everything else is. We are gonna have 4 forward lines 3 D lines so why not just do 1 goalie?

The only reason I bring up 2 goalies is because we're going with a "starting lineup" format. Even though you play 1 goalie, you always bring 2 to the game. But I think one is better.

Assuming all 20 spots are taken up, expect 4 divisions of 5, and 2 conferences of 2 divisions. That's the best format I think.

Also, for the record (while I think of it, not directed at you Chris), I'm just going to keep posting what I'm going to do in terms of setup. Unless someone responds otherwise, I'm assuming everyone is ok with it. So if you stay quiet when I post something, don't complain about it later if you didn't speak up.

1 goalie is fine. There aren't enough worthwhile goalies in the NHL for 20 fantasy teams to try and get three decent ones.

After talking to McNasty, I think we're going to go 2 LW-C-RW, 1 F-F-F, and 2 D-D, and 1 G. Going 4 O lines and 3 D lines with 20 teams will have people picking 3rd/4th liners, and which injuries can make this difficult. I want to keep those players as your backups, as any top-6 player on any team should be your main focus. So we'll run 9 O, 4 D, and 1 G.

I can't specify details of keepers, so we're going to play it by the honor system (which I believe I can edit later if you don't).

For keepers:

5 total. You have to keep AT LEAST 1 defender. And you can keep a MAX of 1 goalie (can't take both). The other 3 are fair game.

Thought you were just going to make it so you can only keep 1 goalie, rest was up to you?

Should we change IR to 2 spots? Or maybe 3? If a D and a G go down, you can get locked up pretty quick and be forced to cut someone. In the NHL, players are just put on IR when they get hurt. You don't want someone to be forced to cut a player because they have too many injured players.
And if there are enough spots, I might be able to have 7 goalies during the season like the Flyers last year. But, seriously, I'd like to see at least a second spot for IR.

i agree, 1 IR spot is redonk for a roster that big.

I debated between 1 or 2 IR spots. But the reason I kept it at one was you have 5 bench spots, 4 if you don't count the second one just about everyone will use with a goalie. So really, if you fill the IR spot, you'd have to have 5 other injuries to have a real problem. I have played with large amounts of forwards in leagues for years and never had to drop a great player who was injured because I had a bench I could swap in. That's why it's 1.

That's what I meant, MAX of 1 goalie. So you can keep 1 goalie, or you can keep none if you want to take a risk of getting one at the draft next year (example: If someone takes Leighton and he ****s the bed).

I honestly have zero idea how keepers work, so if someone knows let me know. And I probably won't know until after the draft, where I assume once you have a roster you can set your keepers.

All,

Also, I came into work to have 12 notifications. Good to see, problem is ESPN's fantasy site is blocked at work.

I have street hockey with co-workers tonight at 5, probably home by 7 or 7:30. Once I get settled down tonight and on the laptop, I'll send the invites out, so keep your eyes open tonight. So if you PMed me last night, no worries, you're in that "7 day deadline" and in.

Also, I brought up format for team names earlier: It's fair game, do as you please, as long as it isn't flaming another board member. Flaming Crosby is encouraged.
