Fantasy Hockey Thread

I'm not a fan of over complicated fantasy hockey leagues with goalies, trades/waivers, plus/minus, head to head match ups, and PIM. So I started an ESPN/TSN fantasy league that's just straight points. 1 point for a goal and 1 point for an assist.

Each player drafts 9 forwards and 6 defensemen and whoever has the most points at the end of the season wins.

I realize this isn't an attractive fantasy league to most people, but for anyone that is interested in a very simple fantasy hockey league PM me your email address and name and I'll send you an invite. I haven't set the draft date yet but it'll likely be sometime next week during the evening. There are currently 4 out of 10 spots left.

To all the people who asked for invites so far, make sure you check your junk mail folder. Apparently it's been flagged as junk for one person already.

Still 4 spots left.

After a few years of this I think these are the best settings. (A few explanations below)

1) No bench players - Constantly having to move your players around gets annoying after a while.

2) 4 UTIL - Pure Customization. There's usually a ton of centremen available and this gives you the chance to build the best possible lineup or add specialists (FW, SOG, +/-, PPP, etc.)

3) No PIMS - Just a retarded stat to be rewarded for and I don't want to have to pick goons in a fantasy league.

4) PO format - I love H2H but it's annoying when you dominate the whole season and then get knocked out early because of injuries or your goalies play like garbage for one week. The byes actually make the season count for something.

5) FW, SOG, etc. - I just like the stats and I find that if you take some of the categories away your team relies too much on the success of your goalies. Gotta spread the love.

I usually make one with friends but I'll start another one if people here are interested. Just send me a PM telling me when you want to do the draft (maybe Saturday afternoon before the last preseason game?).
