Exactly. That was its original purpose. And that's how it functions at its best. At its worse, it's a draft of the 'next best', a designation which is confirmed by that pick not getting promoted in future main ATDs.

So, don't worry about making the now-popular pick or 'winning' the MLD. Dig and find and profile some guys who were undeservingly overlooked. Show what makes them valuable in an all-time context. There's always guys who get drafted in the 15th-20th rounds of the MLD who end up more valuable than guys who were drafted in rounds 1-5. That's almost unheard of in the ATD but common in the MLD.

There is a voting process. All the GMs rank all the teams, and then regular season ranking is counted out. Once the regular season is done, there are 1 on 1 play-off matches, where all the GMs vote on who would win.

Yes. Not sure how much time I'll have, so I need to co-GM.

Plus, usually a couple of off-the-board picks per team. After all, that's all part of expanding our knowledge of players in hockey history. Dig up some gem and profile him earlier, where deserved. Take a flyer on a guy or two in the later rounds, especially extra skater status. But avoid stinkers!

Thanks and while I doubt that, I will probably be around a bit..maybe make some comments here and there in the draft thread. The MLD will always have a tie to me as it is by far my favourite draft.

We did just go through a 4 month+ 1000 pick draft. Perhaps there would be more interest if we pushed back the start of this thing? I donno. Interest in the playoffs seemed the lowest this year since ATD11.

I'm pretty burned out at this point (one of several reasons I needed a co-GM), and I think I'm generally more obsessed with these things than most.

the idea is definitely running through my head right now. start of september, perhaps?

or somewhere in-between... I can always run the draft and participate, while spending two weeks in the UK... it's not like they don't have wifi there.

More concerned that it was because of hard feelings in the ATD. Good to hear though man.
